Preet asks:
I am an Indian girl. Actually i am now fed up from my hairs. I used to style them with heating irons for 2 years. And now i feel sorry for them. My hairs are now become weak, frizzy, dull and I have a hair loss and split ends all over the hairs. Is there any solution?

Dear Preet, Straighteners used continuously will cause dehydration and breakage. Have regular hair cuts to remove the dry split ends and invest in a professional shampoo, conditioner and treatment to help restore the lost moisture. You will need to stop using the straighteners and leave your hair to naturally dry with an anti frizz product so that your hair has time to recover.

Lisa asks:
Iím 35 going grey at a steady rate I have dark brown hair I thought it would be better to go lighter to disguise the growth of grey as its usually round my ears and temple. i have used the same hairdresser for over a year. Yesterday my hair was coloured with an all over tint as usual and some foil highlights. it looks awful and there are still greys at the root, when you lift up my hair there is an obvious orange coulour where the grey root is then it goes into a different colour then the brown. i asked about the greys not covering and i was told no colour is 100% so Iím at a loss whether to go to a salon. i donít want to hurt my regular hairdressers feelings but it really is awful and surely she would have realised it too. please help :(

if you really are unhappy with the result you should return to the hairdresser you saw. I know I for one would rather an unhappy client come to me rather than go elsewhere. Calmly point out what you donít like about the colour and she should be willing to resolve it free of charge.

It can be very frustrating when you are trying to grow out shorter hair. My first piece of advice would be to have your hair styled in to a shorter style that you are happy with immediately. ...More >

Your hairdresser will be able to determine your face shape, your hair type and texture and can advise a style that suits you, while you go through the awkward phase of growing your hair. A common mistake that people make when trying to grow hair longer is to avoid having their hair trimmed, which can lead to split ends and breakage. This has the reverse of the desired effect, making hair shorter.

However, just as often people take this advice to keep up with regular trims too literally. Unless hair is in very poor condition, there is no need to trim hair every 6-8 weeks while you are trying to grow some length. Stick to a trim every 4 months instead, and, in between trims, use deep conditioning products on a weekly basis, and avoid over-use of heated styling products.

Try swapping a cotton pillow for a silk or satin one, to avoid overnight hair breakage, and be gentle when brushing delicate wet hair. Usually our hair growth is determined by our genes, however our diet and lifestyle can also have an effect on our hair growth rate. Stress, alcohol and excess sugar can all contribute to poor scalp and hair health. Foods thought to improve hair growth include salmon and organic eggs, which are both full of hair health-boosting protein and omega 3, oysters, which are rich in zinc, (a zinc deficiency has been linked to hair loss), avocado, sweet potato and almonds. There are supplements available at health food shops and online, which can supplement your diet with additional vitamins and minerals, if you feel you need some extra nutritional support.

Finally, if you are really struggling to grow your hair and are tired of wearing it in shorter styles, you could always consider hair extensions. While there are plenty of cheaper brands on the market, itís worth saving and investing in a good quality extension brand, such as the Easilocks human hair extensions, that we offer at S J Forbes. Good quality hair extensions that have been applied well give the extra length and thickness that cannot be achieved with products alone.
