Katie asks:
I have thick hair and I straighten it about once a month to prevent damage, I have half curly, wavy hair and it can sometimes get annoying, I donít know how to wear it. Are steam flat irons better to use than ceramic? Also could you recommend some hair dyes that are chemical free or has no peroxide, ammonia or bleach.

Personally I would NOT use steam flat irons. Remember the production of steam is at boiling point and this can have a damaging effect on the cuticle of the hair. I would recommend a good quality Platform Irons. These irons should be used in "one pass" this is one slow motion over each section of hair to allow the technology inside the plate itself to help maintain your hair condition. If your hair is very thick but you have colour on it then reduce the temperature on the dial to around 180 degrees and use the "one pass" technique I spoke of above. You will notice your hair looks and feels much healthier. There are colours on the market that do not have peroxide, ammonia or bleach but it totally depends on what you are trying to do and what if any chemical processes you have used already. Let me know and I can be more specific.





Sandi asks:
I use Lanza anti healing serum for my hair and love it. Can I use it with a straightening iron. I am asking because it says itís flammable.

I would not use a serum with a straightener. You have to be careful as some products can stick to the outside of your hair due to the high temperature of straighteners. What I would recommend more that anything is a good quality Nano Fuzieon Hair Straightener (Platform). Without doubt when you use this with a heat protection spray and your hair will be like silk. A product which is not a silicone but is a heat activate deep penetrating treatment with jahoba crystals in a hydrobeed suspension would be perfect. If you want you can apply your serum after. But I can guarantee your hair will never have been like this before.







Natasha asks:
I am growing my hair and my fringe is down to my eye, but when I try to style it and curve it round it always just ends up being straight, so I clip it back!!

You probably need a product with a little bit of hold - to keep your hair curved round until it can go behind your ear. Regular hair spray will probably give too much hold. Try something like Lee Stafford Beach Babe Salt Spray which gives your hair just the right amount of hold and body without looking too ídoneí! Another great way of disguising a fringe that is growing out is to simply pull it back with a head band or a band. These bands keep fringes in check giving serious Grecian glamour at the same time. You can mix up the look by putting hair up or simply leaving it down and tousled, depending on what look you want.
