Victoria asks:
I have always had long, curly hair, but about a year ago I started straightening it around 4 times a week, using heat protection. But now, my hair is not at all curly anymore. I really miss my curly hair, and am wondering if it will ever go back to how it used to be without having a perm?

You have no idea how often I get the same question! This is due to your previous styling with irons. Over time your hair has become dehydrated and to what extent I cannot say. In my experience it is questionable as to whether or not heat protection products protect your hair from heat dehydration. The word heat protection refers to this? What I would do first and foremost is purchase a really intensive deep penetrating conditioning treatment. Apply this to your hair each time you wash it for at least a month. After this you should see some curl coming back into your dehydrated hair. It is important to remember that you need moisture treatment and not one that is heavily protein based. If you do ever use your hair straighteners again even for curling it is vital that your temperature on the device is set so that NO steam comes off your hair during styling. Good luck and let me know how you get on.

Diane asks:
I have very long (almost down to my hips when straight) hair and it is naturally extremely frizzy despite the fact I condition it constantly I have found the only way to control my hair is to put it into two French plates when wet and take them out once dry then hairspray the hell out of this which works great! For about two hours if I am lucky! When I had shoulder length hair when I was younger it was completely untameable! Is there anything I can try to keep my hair from frizzing? I have tried basically every serum, conditioner, leave in conditioner etc that you can buy!

Depending on the thickness of your hair or if you like to leave it natural looking, a good crème would be if you haven’t tried it already is Mazani moisture stretch curl crème, this product contains shea butter which moisturises and tames hair as well as working as a anti humiditant agent. When using your conditioning treatments always towel dry your hair before applying the conditioner as the water can dilute the conditioner and stop it from working, best to leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. I also highly recommend you get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks even if it’s the smallest amount, this keeps hair tamed and frizz controlled as dead ends tend to frizz easier working its way up to the healthy hair.

Andy asks:
I am probably asking this in the wrong place, but no matter how often I ask people no-one gives me a good answer and its a simple question. What is the difference between all hair products like, wax, gel, gum, clay, putty etc. I use VO5 texturising gum at the moment but I would like to be better informed about the qualities of the others. Thanks for reading your reply will be anticipated greatly

What a great question. We can’t really talk about other companies because, the names they sometimes call their products are totally irrelevant to how they perform. We would suggest looking at the product benefits on the packaging rather than the actual names.We have just launched Hairbond our first two Hairbond products (Moulder and Sculptor) around the UK last month and our brand concept is that we find and test the best hair products on the market in professional salons, and research ways how to improve them even more, e.g product performance, smell, packaging etc. We also only use UK manufacturers. Here is a brief description to how they work on the hair: Moulder – Thick dry product that does not look greasy and, gives great shape and hold. Sculptor -Wet look shine that leaves the hair with texture and a gloss finish without drying out
