Anon asks:
I have a natural mop of frizz - almost afro hair. I use mousse as serums are no good. I separate parts of my hair and twist around my finger to create ringlets, however at the age of 28 I’m being mistaken for 10 years younger. I want an easy manageable curly style (not too curly) which will at least add a few years on my age. HELP!

Naturally curly hair can be more difficult to style than straight, and can often take more maintenance. I would recommend using a good styling crème when you dry your hair, such as L’Oreal Techni Art Liss Control, (£9.95) which will add control and definition to your style. I would steer clear of ringlets if you want to look older, but if you still want some movement in your hair I would move more towards a textured look, which you can create using a diffuser setting on your hairdryer and some powerful styling products such as Fudge Reform (£9.95).

Hayley asks:
I have Great Length Hair Extensions in my hair for the last year and before that I had Balmain ones for about a year and a half. I have recently noticed that my real hair is only just over an inch long and I am really scared I am going to be left with no hair if I don’t get them out. My hair is also platinum blonde and very dry. My hair doesn’t seem to grow that’s why I got the extensions can you please advise me what I should do and if it means taking them out then is there anything I can do to help my hair grow?

This does seem to me as though the extensions may not have been applied correctly or you are over processing your hair with colour .I have been applying extensions now for 13years and most of my clients’ hair becomes thicker and longer. I would recommend that you switch to a more gentle product and brand, for instance Racoon International. Their bonding is made from natural ingredients and will not damage your hair if applied correctly by a stylist who has been trained by Racoon International. You must make sure the salon and stylist are Racoon trained and approved. The bond which is attached to the hair should be about half an inch away from the root and the bond should be around the size of a grain of rice. The hair that the bond is attached to should be new growth so really if the extensions are put in correctly your hair should not break. Racoon extensions and Micro Wefts come in a gorgeous range of colours – a great chemical free option and the colours stay fast and true. I certainly would give your hair a little rest and then start afresh and look to other salons if you don’t feel happy where you are going

Denise asks:
My hair is bleached blonde and it turns out pale yellow which is quite brassy, I have been using violet shampoos but they don’t help, could you please tell me a good violet based tint to use and the mixing ratio. A tint that I can purchase in the UK eg Goldwell or Wella or Igora.

Wella do a product called Koleston perfect which contains tints and high lift tints, I recommend a 10/0-10/1 ratio equal amounts however would also recommend a quality salon to achieve this rather than do it yourself.
