I have chemically straightened hair (thermal reconditioned) I recently started using the fekkai glossing creme for flyaways. I love the product but it leaves a bit of residue for which I have to use a clarifying shampoo about once a week. I notice that the clarifying shampoo I use has ammonia in it and I am a little concerned that it will damage my hair. Are ammonia based clarifying shampoos bad for your hair? I know people who color their hair stay away from it. How exactly does ammonia work? Should I change to a vinegar based clarifying shampoo instead? What is the difference between the two? Your professional advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your response.

I would recommend changing the product to one that does not leave a residue on the hair, instead using Sebastian Laminates Serum which will help eliminate unwanted frizz and can be dissolved easily by just washing your hair. Most clarifying shampoos contain detergents that dissolve the build up in the hair caused by chlorinated water but tend to strip the hair of vital nutrients and moisture in the process. If you specifically want to use a clarifying shampoo then try to use one which is safe for chemically treated hair such as Wella Professional System Professionals Refresh shampoo which will also remove build up of chlorine. For flyaway hair, another option is to invest in a good leave-in conditioner such as Sebastian Evokativ Nudist or Wella Professionals System Professional Hydro Milk, both perfect for giving ultimate nourishment and helping with flyaway control.

My hair has always been really thin but not too long ago it started getting way to thin at the top middle front about where my hair parts at. I have hair almost to my waist and due to my recent hair loss I have to get it cut which I really do not want do. Is there anything that I can do or maybe put in my hair to make it thicker or at least appear that way? And if I do have to cut it I was thinking about shoulder length and layered or do you have a better suggestion of a hair cut that would help? I just really want my hair to grow
back hopefully thicker too.

I would suggest you speak to your hairdresser about the recent hair loss and get a professional opinion before you do anything drastic like cutting it. They may suggest you visit a Trichologist for a more detailed diagnosis. It may be that you can create more volume using hair extensions without resorting to cutting your hair. But, I would strongly suggest you visit a reputable hair salon and have a thorough consultation to ensure your hair can take extensions. I would recommend a Racoon salon (01295 770999 for your nearest salon) as they can offer real hair, synthetic hair and also hair wefts depending on your needs and budget.
|Susie asks: |
My main problem is that I am 20 and I have long hair that is quite thin, brittle and damaged at the ends. Because my hair is damaged I tend to use hair straighteners only once every 1-2 weeks, with a heat defense spray, but still find that I am losing a lot of hair. I think that the reason for my hair loss is genetic in the sense that my mum had quite thin hair. But my main concern is that I don't really want to lose the length, but would rather try and do something to keep it in a healthier condition and looking thicker, or use something that will combat the hair loss, please help?

Although the thinning of your hair could be due to genetic factors it is more likely to be caused by the breaking of brittle hair in poor condition. It is really important to use a good conditioner every time you wash your hair and a deep, intensive treatment once a week until the condition improves. Try the Trichology Pre-Wash Reconditioning Treatment this is a super strong and highly effective treatment for restoring the condition of your hair, increasing elasticity and preventing breakage. Keep having a little cut off the ends of your hair and, in time, the hair which did break - but which will no longer do so - will catch up with the rest and you should have a substantial, attractive quantity of hair ending at a good length rather than thin and wispy long hair.
