I have really curly hair. I love my curls but they are so tight I cannot do anything with them. I want them to be relaxed but I do not want anything permanent. I really do not like the idea of these chemical relaxers either. I love how my hair looks when it is wet. It goes into soft big ringlets and I love it. I leave it to dry naturally but when it dries the curls go really tight and horrible. Is there any way of recreating the look of my wet curls when my hair is dry? I am so desperate to wear my curly hair down... I would love to find a solution because at the moment all I can do with my hair is wear it up.

I am loving big curls right now they are hot on the catwalk and scorching on the red carpet whether you are feeling Mischa 80s crimp or digging Beyonces big mama curls this seasons favourite style will bring your inner lioness out! Many curly haired women out there would agree that curls can be a mixed fortune, sometimes waves are loved, and other times sleek straightness is desired. Either way there is an art to perfecting the ultimate tendrilled look, and sometimes it can go one of two ways, hair goes stiff and unnatural through using too much product or worse still having a ball of frizz where your hair used to be! There are many theories as to what makes hair curly in the first place. The main idea is, whether your hair is straight or curly depends on the shape of the hair shaft, which is determined by the shape of the hair follicle. A cross section view of a straight hair would be round whereas a curly hair would appear oval. This shape is determined by your genetic make up, because curly hair has a tendency to be dryer, more brittle and prone to frizz it requires more careful treatment than straight hair to keep it looking its best. Always use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, as well as lavishing lots of TLC with regular treatments such as my SofLee SofLee Intensive Conditioner if your hair tends to go in smaller tight curls then you need to invest a really good set of flat irons – suggest Corioliss give yourself a straight blow-dry (as straight as you can get) then create your own curls with the flat irons make sure you spritz my Poker Straight Flat Iron Mist all over your hair before doing any styling with irons. Take a small section of your hair, grip it on the ceramic plate about an inch from the root GENTLY turn the irons 180 degrees and slowly run them down the hair shaft taking care not to snag any strands. This creates amazing waves that lasts and lasts. Repeat all over your hair in small sections, and finish with a spritz of my Spray Shine for an all over gloss! Or for a more natural dishevelled curl try my Babewave Styling Crème on for size apply evenly to your hair and let it dry naturally – do not touch it until its completely dry but if you want to go all out attach a diffuser to your hairdryer and scrunch your hair dry

I am using a medicated shampoo for dandruff. The thing is that I love very volumised thick hair and since using the shampoo I can not use my regular volumising shampoo or products. What would you suggest? Could I still use volumising and thickening products whist using the medicated shampoo?
|Answered By: |
I would definitely suggest using a professional product to stimulate volume and body. Using a good product such as NIOXIN will help to motivate a fuller look whilst also helping with dandruff. Another option is to introduce a tint to your hair as this will help to give more texture and build body.

I just got my hair cut into an above the shoulders flip. The problem is the flip falls out within minutes of curling it. What can I do to get the flip to hold all day?
|Answered By: |
It could be a question of the graduation within the cut, sometimes some small 10 degrees reverse layers could do the trick, however you can try to use some strong hold products to help you to maintain it, and do not forget of course a touch of hair spray but try to spray it from the bottom rather than from the top of your hair.
