Good to hear from you. ...More >
You really need to visit a Trichologist as the change in your hair could be due to a number of factors including hormones, genetics, the products you are using or possibly a medical condition.
A full consultation with a trichologist will help to identify what is changing and how you can manage it moving forward. If you need to find a trichologist, I am happy to recommend someone in your area via the Institute of Trichologists.

I have very long, thick and wavy/curly hair depending on the day really. I donít blow dry or dye it and I use the occasional hair mask, it has always been very healthy.
About 7 months ago, almost over night it became very rough and impossible to pull apart resulting in these clumps of frizzy knots, it almost feels like velcro. Iíve tried everything from using products with no protein to home remedies like apple cider vinegar but it hasnít helped. Iím worried I will have to cut it all off as itís very unmanageable. Iíd appreciate any advice, thank you!

This is interesting but obviously a worry to you. ...More >
Have you changed anything in you styling or shampoo conditioning routine.
For it to change almost overnight it is something to do with what you are or are not using.
This sometimes happens with a change in the water (ph or hard water) you have not moved house?
A few quick tips.
Shampoo your hair like normal but before you rinse it out take your hands into the roots at your scalp.
Close your fingers together and smooth down from roots to ends while shampoo is on hair.
Do the same with your conditioner or treatment.
If need be after rinsing and before styling apply a small amount of serum or oil and again smooth through and style as normal.
This isnít a hair problem it is a styling regime product or water change.
It can also help( donít laugh using silk pillows that wonít create static or a silk loose fitting hat or beeni)
I know sounds daft but loads of my friends with fros do exactly this)

I have very thick, natural, African-american hair which I have dyed in the past (dark colors like black, brown, copper, etc). I want to achieve a smoky bluish-green color (photo link below) with out doing significant damage to my hair. I have no idea what color to even use or how I would do it. Iíd prefer to do it at home, only going to a salon if necessary. Do you have any tips or advice on what color to buy and how I would achieve the look I want?
|Answered By: |
To achieve such a cool colour on hair that is not only naturally coarse but also previously treated with chemicals and still maintain condition is a very big ask. I would advise against attempting a home care product to achieve this result. Consult a professional colour specialist and have the appropriate tenacity tests to see if you hair can handle this service and then have it done in salon. My initial feeling is that you wonít be able to achieve this until your hair is in better condition. I would recommend exploring other options till your hair is in better condition or has less chemical history on it.
