I have had long black hair for all my life, and I have only had it cut a few times. For a religious festival coming up, I wanted to cut my hair and have red highlights, and a fringe. My hairdresser said that because this is the first time I will be applying colour to my hair, she is going to use a natural based colour. are these just as good as bleach ones?

As your hair is black it will be very difficult to lift your colour to red using natural products. They would need to use a peroxide of at least 30 vol, 9%, or pre lighten with bleach and then use the colour. May I suggest that you get a second opinion?

My hair is natural wavy. I straighten my hair everyday but I rarely use protection spray as they leave my hair greasy and I think the straighteners are damaging my hair. If I go out when it is damp or
foggy my hair goes wavy and really frizzy. Also I want to grow my hair but I cannot afford extensions and whenever my hair gets to a certain length it seems to go really dry do you have any tips or suggestions that could help.

I am afraid your hair is dry and brittle because you are using heated appliances without protecting you hair. You really must use a heat protection spray if you are using irons or hairdryers. GHD has launched 3 thermal protectors for different hair textures so I am sure one of these would be suitable. It may also be that you are spraying the product too close to the roots, try to focus on the mid to ends of the hair and this should stop the greasy effect. Hair extensions are a great way to have instant length - you could consider trying synthetic hair extensions as they are less expensive than real hair and can still look amazing as long as they are applied by a good extensionist. Racoon promote both real hair and synthetic hair and have over 2000 salons nationwide. Call 01295 770999 for your nearest salon.

My hair is very thick, frizzy/curly and some hairdressers described it as mixed race hair meaning it is partly like an afro. I went about 6 months ago to a hair dresser and asked for it to be thinned for some reason she started layering it but she did not seem to be doing it in any style or form she literally hacked into my hair and took chunks out of it. So I now have hair that is partly long but some bits are short just at the back but it looks awful. I use to have light blonde hair but through my teens it has turned mousey blonde I think it would look cool to have chunks of chocolate brown in my hair to give a funky look, as funky is what I want it to be

I would like to suggest you use an all over high gloss semi-permanent colour in a chocolate brown tone, as for the haircut, perhaps it is better if you maintain your hair long as you cut it short it would perhaps become an Afro and to make it look different would take you a long time. Also being a dancer the easiest thing would be to tie it up, I would suggest you visit a good hairdresser in your area and have an intense consultation also do not be scared to ask for some styling advise. Another suggestion would be to have a permanent thermal straightening (yuko system), visit a specialised salon for more info. As for your everyday regime it is very important to use the right products look at the Lazartigue range for frizzy hair its great. It would give your hair great results also try the Lazartigues Pre shampoo treatment with shea butter works magic!!
