Ryan asks:
Iím not sure how I should go about cutting my own hair. I donít have the money to go to a salon frequently, so I have been cutting it on myself for a while. I was wondering how wet or dry I should cut it with shears, and if that would change if I were to use a razor blade. Also, I have read mixed procedures, some saying that I should shampoo my hair before cutting it, while others say to shampoo and condition hair. Iím not sure which one is right. Also, I have a texturizing paste, but I donít know how to use it (how much and how wet or dry my hair would be when I do). Also, last question; if I used the paste, how should I wash my hair on days I donít shampoo? Should I water wash or condition, and should I leave my hair the way it is or reapply more paste? I am not exactly sure how to cut my own hair or use products, so any help would be appreciated!

You donít have to spend a fortune when it comes to your hair. Try going to a salons training night these nights are done with the trainees and are either extremely cheap or complimentary. You will also achieve a better cut and style

Melissa asks:
Iíve noticed my hair has started breaking off at the back of my head. I have long hair and Iím left with clumps of hair that are only 2-3" long! Itís happening around my crowns (I have double crowns) which leads me to think itís because of backcombing (I used to backcomb to stop the hair from parting at the crown), does this sound plausible? (Iím a bit worried all my hairís going to break off hence why Iím trying to find a pattern /cause!). Inspecting the hair thatís left, it doesnít look like itís got split ends but does look dry. Iíve come to terms with cutting to the collarbone to improve condition but mostly the appearance (as it looks very sparse at the ends now because of the hair Iíve lost) but Iíd rather not cut it to the length of the remaining strands! Will the broken hair grow? Is there anything I can do to encourage growth/improve the condition of the hair? (Because of the double crowns, I have to blow dry that area where the broken hair is, but use the cool setting on my hairdryer - is that ok? Needless to say, have stopped backcombing!

There are a number of reasons for hair to break, which could be over processing with chemicals, too much heat, back combing, the wrong choice of brush etc. You are right to stop back combing and use as little direct heat on your hair as possible. I would also agree that a good cut will improve your hair dramatically and I would also recommend intensive conditioning treatments at your salon, as all product houses have specific shampoos and conditioners to help restore the strength of your hair.
