Margaret asks:
I have thinning hair and would like to get a perm to make it look thicker is that ok or a No No?

This is all very well but please try some thickening styling products before you have it permed to really see if you need to actually have it permed to create this kind of thickness.





Min asks:
I have a round face, I am Asian, Italian and Lebanese so my hair is thick, wavy, oily at the roots, below my shoulders, layered and can get frizzy. I had short layers but they all grew out so I will be getting a new haircut soon. I was thinking of getting a short layered choppy haircut more at the top so thereís more volume there and then thinning out towards the bottom with dark red peak a boo highlights. Probably without a bang because when I did have bangs before they grew out, they would kind of wave outwards and then go in. I donít know but Iím tired of it so Iím going to stick with just maybe trimming them. What Iím worried about is, would it look good or not for my face structure? Because I have a very round face. Iím not trying to cut it short maybe just trimmed 2 inches or so. But also I wash my hair everyday because of the oil but my hair is still healthy but by the end of the day my roots are oily again, but I think that is because Iím always playing with it.

To get the added volume you require on the crown just have your hair internally skimmed with a razor.

This will introduce internal layers that will add style support and make styling much easier. ...More >

If you have nice long hair DO NOT get it cut KEEP IT.

If your roots go greasy this could be down to the shampoo and conditioner you are using.

Some tips.

If you wash your hair every day then follow this routine:

1. Wash your hair once and only lightly massage your scalp in the process.

2. After finishing rinsing out the shampoo carry on with a cool or cold rinse if you can stand it this will aid in slowing down your sebum/oil production.

3. Use a light spray in or leave in conditioner and only apply mid lengths to ends keeping it away from your roots.

4. Style as normal but avoid any oily styling products as they will only add to the problem.







Isobel asks:
I have Remington Wet 2 Dry straighteners - they have impregnated and ionic plates - is this as good as the FHI ones and if not whatís better about the FHI ones? Canít afford to buy another set of straighteners that claim to be fab but donít do much better than my GHDs! Interested to read that using serum boils the keratin out of the hair? I wash 3 times a week, use keratin shampoo and conditioner with regular deep keratin conditioner too. Once every 6 weeks I use Brazilian keratin ístraighteningí (non chemical) product. I thought this would make my hair less porous and thus less dry/individual hairs look bent and donít lie together. I straighten full head of hair 2 - 3 times a week and quickly once over in between just on any hairs that are out of shape from sleep. I just do NOT know what to do with my hair - I have an asymmetrical (from back to front) bob and getting finer all the time hair (Iím 43). I have spent FORTUNES on conditioners and salon shampoos etc and nothing will work. My hair when wet from washing is soft, sleek, smooth, all keeping together but as it dries the ends wisp up and look bent and have no movement. I just do not know what else to do. I either have salon Wella colours or at home colours and donít mess my hair up with colour. What do you suggest? I fear if I go into a salon and say oh my ends are dry Iíll just get given more conditioners and be told íthis is the one that will solve your woesí - but Iíve been told that so many times before...

I think all your problems come from heat damage! You NEED a hair straightener that has a temp control on it. If you notice steam coming off your hair when you straighten it that is moisture being taken out of your hair. What I ALWAYS do when using any iron is: Adjust the temp so that no steam or very little come off the hair and slowly glide the iron down the section. This ensures you keep as much of the moisture content as possible and you hair WILL stay in better condition. Keep using all the conditioning products you are using at the moment and try an iron with a variable temp setting. You will notice a massive difference.
