Abdul asks:
How do you convince a client to use conditioner and styling aid before blow drying?

Hi Abdul - When I come across a stubborn client who prefers to ignore my professional advice, try doing what I do. If hair loss may eventually result by not following professional advice, install “hair loss fear in them”. Clients want to keep as much hair as they possibly can, for as long as they can. “By not using conditioner and a thermal protection styling product, you may eventually develop a dry and dehydrated scalp. Just like any living thing, your hair follicles need moisture. Flowers will not grow if the soil is dry.”

Lisa asks:
I have naturally mid-to-dark brown hair with a few stray greys, and have for the past couple of years had my hair dyed red at a salon. I’m on a budget so I recently decided to swap to home colouring, picking Connemara by L’Oreal (Recital Preference). The colour came out quite well but I was surprised at how dark it was. I really wanted to achieve a mid-tone auburn. If I continue with home dye, would I need to pre-lighten my hair at home; in which case is there a product you could recommend? Or do I simply need to pick a lighter shade?

You don’t want to get in to pre-lightening at Home! All you need to do is choose a lighter shade. Also a word of advice – don’t put the colour all over each time you do your hair - just do the root area as you will get a very dark colour build-up.

Viv asks:
I have grey (mostly white) hair. I want to keep its natural colour but it is curly. The constant straightening appears to be making it go yellow in patches even though I use lots of heat protection spray.

Your hair sounds really nice and I know that smooth styling has been popular for the past 7 years or so, so straightening irons have made a huge impact on people. But the good news is texture is back in a big way! So although you love your hair smooth, you may also want to look at a style you can wear curly as well as straight. There are many fab products on the market to help keep a beautiful soft curl to your hair, such as Curl Activate from Senescence. Giving your hair a break from the iron will be a good thing every now and then. Also consider using violet based shampoos (Joico Violet Shampoo is great, and conditioners can cut the yellowing to a degree.
