I have been having weaves done for about a year but I find the synthetic hair weaves I am buying break really easily and do not
retain the thickness for very long. I try not to comb the extensions to often but I still end up with hair breaking off onto the floor. Perhaps I should be buying better quality weaves, can you recommend a particular brand and where can I buy it from.

Some people prefer to use synthetic hair because it is lighter and stays straighter if using straight hair or curly if using curly. It can be easier to manage if just rinsed and left to dry normally. However synthetic has developed and you can now purchase what is known as Thermo fibre which can endure heat up to 180c. It feels and acts like human hair and is available in up to 29 colours. It can be purchased as machine weft, clip in or the top ends pre-bonded. With regards to shredding, this might have a lot to do with the type of brush you are using and how you prepare your hair before you go to bed. It is best to use a nylon bristle brush that can groom through the hair without pulling it. With regards to wearing your hair whilst you sleep, I recommend you plait it before you go to bed. The reason for this is whilst you are sleeping, you might be moving around and this would cause the hair to tangle. In the morning if the incorrect brush is used and you are trying to detangle your hair, this will result in loss of hair due to the amount of brushing.

My hair is very thick, frizzy/curly and some hairdressers described it as mixed race hair meaning it is partly like an afro. I went about 6 months ago to a hair dresser and asked for it to be thinned for some reason she started layering it but she did not seem to be doing it in any style or form she literally hacked into my hair and took chunks out of it. So I now have hair that is partly long but some bits are short just at the back but it looks awful. I use to have light blonde hair but through my teens it has turned mousey blonde I think it would look cool to have chunks of chocolate brown in my hair to give a funky look, as funky is what I want it to be

I would like to suggest you use an all over high gloss semi-permanent colour in a chocolate brown tone, as for the haircut, perhaps it is better if you maintain your hair long as you cut it short it would perhaps become an Afro and to make it look different would take you a long time. Also being a dancer the easiest thing would be to tie it up, I would suggest you visit a good hairdresser in your area and have an intense consultation also do not be scared to ask for some styling advise. Another suggestion would be to have a permanent thermal straightening (yuko system), visit a specialised salon for more info. As for your everyday regime it is very important to use the right products look at the Lazartigue range for frizzy hair its great. It would give your hair great results also try the Lazartigues Pre shampoo treatment with shea butter works magic!!

I have shoulder length fine hair which has a natural curly kink; over the past couple of years I have been using GHD strengtheners to get the sleek effect. Now that fashions are changing I have had a perm which I thought would give me big glossy curls. Unfortunately this has not been the case; my hair is not any curlier than it was before naturally. I am in my mid 30's so I also home dye my hair to cover greys. My hair is now a fuzzy mess, dry and dull. I've tried most of the curl shampoos, conditioners and styling products you can buy from the high street. Can you tell me the best treatments to use to get my hair back in better condition and also the best styling products to reduce the frizz.

Curly shampoos and treatments would make your hair crispier! Try J.F Lazartigue moisturising shampoo and conditioner and a little trade secret, after you shampoo and condition your hair mix 2tbs of Epson salt with half a glass of water leave it in the hair for about 5 minutes and rinse well. This contains magnesium salts that would revive your curl. I would also advise you to not use many chemical treatments at the same time as its to much for your hair to take it.
