Anon asks:
Dear Mr Maleedy, Iíve used your Trichology brand juniper tar shampoo for years. Is your Juniper Mint Scalp Therapy Shampoo an advance on the earlier product? Thank you.

Thank you for your question, and for having used the Trichology Juniper Tar Shampoo. The answer to you question is "yes", this is a significant improvement on the Juniper shampoo. With the Juniper Mint Scalp Therapy Shampoo clearly we are still using juniper - not because we like the smell so much (the dominant, tar-like smell is juniper tar obtained from Spanish juniper trees) but because itís just so effective. Apart from its natural anti-microbial properties itís main function is to slow down whatís called the "epidermal turnover", thatís the rate at which skin cells pass through the scalp on their way to the surface. When thereís a problem the rate of epidermal turnover speeds up, causes scale to form, allows micro-organisms to multiply etc. The juniper tar slows this cellular rate of growth back to normal.

We have kept the level of juniper tar the same as previously but we have added corn mint oil, this is another excellent anti-microbial, and we have increased the levels of other natural oils, thyme oil, tea tree oil and rosemary oil. We have also added some new conditioning agents to have a nicer effect on the hair itself.





Jen asks:
I have very fine, thin hair that lays flat no matter even with spray gels, etc. And although my scalp gets oily, my hair can often look like straw. I have tried many things to give my flat, lifeless hair body, without weighing it down and drying it out. It is cut in a chin length bob. But every day is a bad hair day. I look awful.

For fine hair like yours that lies very flat I would strongly recommend the Wella System Professional Volumize range and Perfect hair. These products are exactly what you need to hopefully help your issue with fine hair.







Abundance asks:
How do I maintain my hair when it is under extensions?

It really depends what type of extensions you have.

Full head weave: Your hair should have been washed, conditioned and neatly corn rowed with synthetic hair. Some people use wool to stitch the weave on, this is not good because wool traps and attracts oils and moisture and will eventually starts to smell. Your hair should remain tidy underneath your extensions. Try not to apply any grease based products to your own hair extensions (they wonít grow) or use any firm holding sprays, these contribute to your hair extensions becoming cloggy and heavy and eventually dirty. There is very little maintenance required for your hair underneath, because it is not being affected by any chemicals or continual grooming, so your hair is resting and growing. Try not to keep a weave-on in more than 8 weeks. I think it is a good idea to release your hair, have it washed and conditioned and then your weave reapplied. When your hair is in its natural state and resting, it will grow all by itself without any assistance. ...More >

Lace Wigs or Wigs: I do not advise using a wig cap for the same reason as using wool. I do not advise keeping your lace wig on continually for more than 2 weeks at a time if possible. You need to keep the area around your hairline clean and free from potential infection or skin discolouration or pigmentation problems. There is very little maintenance required for your hair underneath, because it is not being affected by any chemicals or continual grooming, so your hair is resting and growing. When your hair is in its natural state and resting, it will grow all by itself without any assistance.

Integrated Hair extension techniques such as strand by strand, integrated weave, hook and latch, micro ring track, clip-ins or weft bonded techniques. This means your hair is still exposed in between layers of hair extensions. It is best not to use any grease base products, but use a good quality leave in spray condition each morning and evening. Try to use a good quality brush that will groom from the root without pulling out your hair extensions, this will help to avoid matting. Wash your hair once or twice a week with a good quality shampoo for greasy hair. This shampoo type will moisture your hair without adding grease which might contribute to premature loosening of your extension.
