|Chelsey asks: |
I have long naturally curly hair but my ends are fried and dead and with it being so long it doesn’t really curl so I want to cut off the dead ends and get a fresh start. What would you recommend getting done to make my hair full of life and curl?
|Answered By: |
Chelsey. The question is why are the ends of your hair "fried"? If you use hair straighteners that can easily do it, as can any other form of heat so try to avoid it if you can. ...More >
I would start your hair improvement by having the damaged ends cut off. If you use heat on your hair use a good heat-protection spray, that can help greatly. Also use a good quality conditioner every time you wash your hair and a treatment reconditioning cream once a week or two. As the condition of your hair improve you will notice having more body and bounce.

I have done rebonding for the past four years or so. I was wondering if rebonding or flat ironing hair a few times a week would be more damaging? I am considering stopping rebonding treatments as they are quite costly. I have unruly frizzy curly hair naturally. Please advise.

Hi Haseena, rebonding breaks down the bonds in your hair using chemicals, and damages the inner structure of the hair (Cortex), which is irreversible. Flat ironing hair (straightening and blow-drying) is still damaging to the hair, but heat damage is better than chemical damage. Therefore, flat ironing is a better choice as you can then control a lot of the damage by using products that protect the hair from harsh elements such as heat. I recommend using products such as the Mizani Thermasmooth range, which is for naturally curly hair that is styled straight and blocks out humidity to help keep it styled for days. Mizani have night treatments to use and frizz controlling products too. ...More >
If you are looking for a more longer-lasting smoothing solution to tame your mane, I would recommend the Kebelo ADVANTAGE in-salon treatment, as this is a fast, easy and affordable way to gain smooth, glossy and manageable hair. The three-part system, which uses Carbocysteine smoothing technology, works on each and every hair strand, adding strength, giving support and boosting shine. The best part? The treatment lasts up to 100 days, equating to weeks of frizz-free hair and reducing the need to use straightening irons.

Would both of my daughters (one 11 and one 12) look good with a pixie cut? One has brown hair, and the other blonde. They want their hair like Miley Cyrus! Generally, like a pixie cut but one of them wants their bangs swooped over to the side and the other one wants short hair on the sides and her bangs on the shorter side but still being able to pin them up! Thank you so much!!

The pixie cut is very popular with tweeners so the answer is yes!! This age is an ideal tme to experiment on styles to get used to finding out what suits their face shape and personality etc..it also helps avoid making a drastic hair style change when older ( we all know how that can go!)and its fun. In Reference to Miley Cyrus ... her particular style is VERY short on her temples and nape so I would suggest some thing a bit longer , still shaped over ears and nape , but not necessarily buzz cut(as hers is ) You didnt say if your girls hair was straight, curly , thick , fine ? all of the mentioned can have a pixie cut taylored to hair type . Re the long Side fringe(bangs) the fringe should be a graduated cut chipped into. A good guide for length is for the start to be on eybrow and the end just long enought to hook over ear .. The shorter fringe should be layered and although still asymetric not so steep.. I suggest you look on the hairstyle finder tab on this site ..there are lots of variations and you can have a bit of this, and a bit of that, makes it more individual for your girls. They can play around with products too and clips sleeking it back, funking it up and pinning the sides to mention a few options . Hope they love their new haircuts .... Marion
