Tim asks:
I am a 16 year old male, I usually have a pretty short cut, grade 3 on the sides and trimmed on top to suit, I usually use gel which does the job I guess. However, as of late I have been letting my hair grow because I fancy a change. The thing is after about an inch length on the sides my hairs gone really curly. At the top of the ears it doesn’t grow over them it just curls back upwards in little ringlets and it is the same with the back. On top its just a mess. I can straighten the fringe which looks better, but the sides and back refuse to straighten properly which just flare out at a right angle above my ears. My hair is very resilient and I have tried a number of products. Which does not give a good look, and mousse just seems to make it even curlier. Any ideas? Should I let it grow? At the moment when I pull down my sides come just above the bottom of my ears, on top is about 8cm and my sideburns are non-existent as they curl upwards in line with the bottom of my ears. I want to find out what it will be like once grown past the curls up at the ear stage or maybe you could give me an idea? Or should I go back to a grade 3 on the sides. Your advice would be much appreciated.

My hair is also very curly, so I sympathise with your situation. To be honest, you will have to grow your hair longer so that the weight of the hair pulls it a little more straight. In the meantime I would suggest using ceramic straightening irons to smooth out your hair, as it sounds like it is long enough to achieve this. As far as products are concerned, there really is no product that you can apply that will straighten your hair without styling first, but there are chemical straightening processes worth enquiring about which will help relax the curl in your hair. Failing all this, it is back to the short back and sides!

Alison asks:
I have shortish brown hair, in a bob which is fine and quite frizzy. I use hair straighteners most days. I am getting married in the Caribbean in May and need some tips to help improve the condition of my hair and avoid my hair being a frizzy mess whilst there. Also have you any ideas of what I can do to make my hair look good when allowing it to dry naturally as it always just ends up really frizzy?

The Caribbean is going to be humid so I have a few suggestions.

You could find out if there is a great hairdresser on site to blow dry your hair to perfection with anti humidity products to stop it frizzing. Buy some great hair accessories and a beautiful veil.
Slick it back making it look really clean and sharp
Buy a beautiful hat that is fabulous ...More >

For future hair advice I would say the straighteners need to go and you need to be shown how to bring out the best in your natural hair. Leave in conditioner is fantastic.
Find a great stylist that can give you a free consultation. There is no need to suffer.

Good luck

Zoe asks:
I have mid-length fine hair and recently it has been getting really greasy. I wash my hair every morning as I suffer from really bad bed head. I have tried loads of different shampoos and refrain from using conditioner. I am becoming very conscious that people will notice the greasiness! What steps can I take to stop it getting so greasy?

A really simple and effective way of helping stop this is in your routine when washing your hair. On your final rinse (after rinsing out the shampoo) turn the water to cool or cold if you can stand it. This will help cool down your scalp. Ensure when you are washing your hair that you only apply a light massaging technique when shampooing as if you are too heavy at this stage it will only stimulate your sebaceous glands and promote more oil production. ...More >

Lastly try using a spray in conditioner through the mid lengths and ends to avoid the conditioner coming into contact with your scalp.

If you follow this then you should notice a reduction in the natural oil on your scalp keeping your hair easier to manage.
