Yemisi asks:
I have afro hair which grows well except that I have bruises when I make my hair. I had to cut it two years ago but have started Growing it now. The problem I see now is with the braids I find my frontal hair having white stuff at the roots and my scalp dry. When I had it cut I texturised and washed minimum twice a week and didnít experience any dryness. I donít want to have frontal hair loss. What do I do please?

Dry hair, a dry scalp, flaking scalp and dandruff are the result of one or more elements depleting your bodyís natural oils before they can reach your skin and hair. Getting back your healthy scalp and hair will likely mean making a change in your daily cosmetic regime, your diet and taking better steps to protect yourself from drying influences. In extreme cases, seeking professional help might also be an option. Here are some of the most common causes of dry hair and scalp: ...More >

Harmful chemicals found in cheap and over-used hair products over processing of hair and roots after chemical treatment Harmful cosmetic habits, like twenty minutes under the blow-dryer and curling iron overexposure to harsh weather, especially cold winter air braiding or corn rowing which is too tight and is constantly pulling on the hair root. Allergic to synthetic fibre which is used to cornrow hair a diet lacking in necessary vitamins dehydration not taking in enough fluids like water. An untreated skin condition, such as eczema, psoriasis, or seborrhoea dermatitis changes in your hormones which often change the way your hair and nails behave

I think the best way to begin is to examine the recent changes you have made which resulted in your scalp becoming dry and flaky. It would seem to me that your braids are also too tight which could result in traction alopecia.

Try to relieve any stress points on the hair, take in more liquids, and use a quality shampoo and conditioner and take some vitamins.





Heather asks:
My hair is naturally blonde. In December, I decided to dye it medium red brown, then light auburn. I have been consistently dying it light auburn at home since then. It looks really good and I get lots of compliments, but it is so time consuming to maintain. I have to at least dye the roots every 2-3 weeks with a complete colour touch up every 4-6 weeks. My hair is now super dry and fried. I want to go back to blonde but stay with strawberry blonde for a while (probably over the summer). My friend is in cosmetology school and is going to do it for me, but Iím a little nervous. How should I go about this (what should I describe to her that I want her to do)... lots of highlights that end up strawberry with some auburn left over? How would I maintain that myself at home when my blonde roots come in... an at home highlighting kit? What instructions would you give to a new stylist to accomplish this? Thank you for your help in advance!!

I would strongly recommend having a full consultation with a professional Colour Technician to ensure quality results. Your primary concern should be the condition of your hair, and as you have described your hair as Ďdry and friedí, going for a lighter colour might not be the best option as it could further sensitive the condition if the hair. I would suggest that following the consultation, you either move on to a more organic product for soft colour result or opt for a strawberry tone by applying a highlighting technique. After this, it is imperative that you spend time conditioning your locks through intensive hair treatments to improve hair health and re-build condition.







Nicola Jane asks:
I am 39 and have coloured hair. Naturally my hair is wavy/curly in places/frizzy. Can you recommend a non chemical hair relaxer/ straightener that I can use myself as I fear if I keep straightening my hair with the GHDs will damage it and I just hate how it looks when I leave it to dry naturally. I already use your shampoo, conditioner and heat spray.

Frizzy hair can be a nightmare and using GHDs or heated irons can be really damaging. With the right products it doesnít need to be painful to achieve your perfect look! ...More >

Use my poker straight shampoo with P2Fifty and my poker straight conditioner with P2Fifty is a great start as it tames kinks in your hair straight from washing and leaves a super glossy finish.

Another great way to keep your hair in top condition and barely lifting a finger is by using my poker straight sleepover overnight treatment which works on your hair overnight and helps replenish damaged hair.

Follow with my poker straight intensive treatment with P2Fifty use this to repair damage from hot irons and leave your hair feeling moisturised and feeling healthy.

Before drying your hair apply a walnut size amount of my poker straight glistening balm to wet, which will not only tame your frizz but give you an amazing shine as well.
