How do I stop hair loss after a chemical relaxer process. I had worn dreads for over 5 years and maybe the relaxer traumatized my hair. Please help! How do I stop my hair from falling out?

Hi Ebony - Could be two things, one is that your hair might have been over processed and itís causing breakage and will take its course, secondly you might be being too rough with it when doing. Either way you might want to consider cutting some of the relaxer out and giving it a rest for a while, and don't forget to condition it a lot, seek advice from the salon that relaxed it, they owe it to you.

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.
