Sue asks:
Can you recommend a curling iron that will work well, but wonít do too much damage to my hair? I love my hair in curls, but the only wand Iíve found that makes lasting curls is my Jose Eber. Unfortunately, itís been frying my hair and the damage is starting to show. What should I look for in a curling iron so that I know the curls will really last, but it wonít destroy my hair?

The reason your curls are lasting is because the wand throughs out some serious heat - the hotter the wand the longer the curl will last - BUT, and it is a big BUT this will damage your hair and some of this damage will be irreversible. ...More >

I want to break this down for you; firstly to address the damage in your hair, then to prevent further damage and then look at curling wands that will produce great curls but wonít fry your hair.

1. Damage: I would recommend you use a collection of products that will improve the strength and general condition of your hair, look for products that contain wheat protein as they will contain essential amino acids to repair the structure of your hair and add much needed moisture. We use Electric Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner as they are packed with wheat protiens and jojoba & meadowfoam to hydrate, repair and reduce breakage. Use a hair masque every seven to ten days to really nourish and condition - your hair will thank you for it! (top tip - apply your hair masque after your shampooing and then once you have rinsed off the masque apply your regular conditioner to lock in all the goodness - rinse and style as normal).

2. Damage prevention: If you take one piece of advise from this reply let it be this one: USE HEAT PROTECTOR. I canít stress how important this is when using heated styling tools. We use P4 Preparation Spray and we also love Kerastase Ciment Thermique. Go for the best your budget can afford.

3. Which Wand? We use Babyliss Pro wand - the great thing about this wand is has thermal control dial - allowing you to reduce the heat to prevent damage. I would look for a wand that has heat control and experiment using a reduced heat along with a great hold hairspray combined with using the products above and I guarantee your bouncy curls will be shiny and full of health in no time!

blonde hair generally looks great grown out . I would recommend keeping your fringe really long and the sides tailored to about two to three inches .Use minimum product and you will get a cool surfy young Leonardo Di Caprio style. This look is very on trend right now sexy but strong!

Colouring your hair at home can lead to a multitude of disasters: if the colour is lighter than your existing colour you will end up with root glow (this is when your roots are brighter/lighter than the mid lengths leaving you with an uneven result, if the colour is too dark then the colour could sink or grab existing pre-lightened hair resulting in darker areas where the porosity of the hair shaft differs. ...More >

My suggestion would be to ask your salon for a colour which has more longevity to it, such as ombre or dip dye as this leave behind minimal roots and fewer trips to the salon. Alternatively you could enquire at your salon about their training days and be a model for that as you would be charged a much smaller fee.

If you do decide to go ahead with home colour, remember to skin test with the products 48 hours before applying.
