Gabbie asks:
So, I have naturally curly hair and I saw a video about silicone in natural hair products and how this stunts hair growth by clogging the cuticles. However, some YouTube subscribers who I look up to all use silicons, so is this bad for my hair? And if so whats a good alternative?

Hi Gabbie, I think it is best to not use shampoo with too much silicone, but conditioner and serums are okay as they help smooth and create shine. Use a deep cleansing shampoo every now and then to remove any potential build up of silicone. Thank you

Nicole asks:
I have natural Afro-Caribbean hair and until two months ago I had worn my hair in weaves, continually, for the last twenty years! I am now on a journey to grow back my edges and am interested in trying the KeraStraight treatment – its Formaldehyde-free formula seems less extreme than other professional relaxants – however, I am confused by all the keratin treatments available. Are there any other salon treatments that don’t contain Formaldehyde? Can KeraStraight be used on Afro-Caribbean hair? Which are the best salons in Manchester, where I live, to try out this treatment?

KeraStraight is the brand name behind the straightening repair treatment known as the KeraStraight Ultimate Treatment. You’re correct that the treatment is Formaldehyde-free, making it an appealing choice considering the known link between Formaldehyde and allergic reactions, skin complaints and irritations, and the reported connection between long-term use of Formaldehyde and certain types of cancer. While there are other effective Formaldehyde-free smoothing treatments on the market, at Westrow we offer the KeraStraight Ultimate treatment because we’ve found it to be the most effective ‘Brazilian blow-dry’ treatment available, which can have a truly transformative effect on unmanageable locks. Designed for coarse, dry and damaged hair, it uses advanced proteins to strengthen and repair damaged hairs, eliminating frizz and making hair straighter in the process. The repairing agents within the formula rebuild the structure of the hair, leaving it with a smooth, soft, straight finish and a lovely shine that can last for up to four months.

KeraStraight’s Ultimate treatment can certainly be used on Afro-Caribbean hair – in fact, we’ve seen some incredible results when using it on Afro hair in our salons – however, as there are so many types of Afro hair, the final results will always depend on the individual. If your hair has a very strong natural curl energy it may end up repaired, softer and easier to manage, but with looser curls, rather than fully straightened. Hair with less natural strength is more likely to end up straighter – and even completely straight – after a single treatment. KeraStraight aftercare products can help to enhance and extend the results. As with all professional treatments, make sure you go through a thorough consultation process before going ahead with the procedure, to make sure it’s suitable and appropriate to your hair type, and will meet your expectations. As KeraStraight is a registered manufacturer, their website will give details of approved salons in your area offering the treatment and aftercare products.

Sophie asks:
I’ve quite thick hair that gets greasy fast and I’ve tried everything but I can’t find a shampoo that doesn’t weigh my hair down and doesn’t make my hair flat. Just wondering if you can recommend any shampoo and conditioners that are light and don’t leave a lot of product but still wash thoroughly

Hi Sophie, I love the Joico, I’d hair and Redken ranges. If you don’t have colour on your hair try using one for normal hair or called balancing. You can always try a spray leave in conditioner as that will add moisture and condition your hair without weighing your hair down. Thank you
