My hair is very damaged. I wear it in a very short style, because most of the lengths and ends have broken away, and it desperately needs a trim, but I donít want my hair to be any shorter than it already is. How can I encourage my hair to grow longer faster? And how can I get rid of the split ends without making my style even shorter?

You need to get rid of the damaged split ends and the only way to do this is by cutting the hair, as they are beyond repair. However, donít worry, as the damaged ends tend to be very fine anyway, so getting rid of them wonít drastically alter the appearance of your style and will actually make your hair look much healthier and your style look far more flattering.
Use products to help restore the damage to your remaining locks, and to help prevent further damage Ė investing in an intensive conditioning mask rich in proteins and a protective leave-in conditioning spray with heat protective qualities is a good start. You should also consider trying a monthly professional conditioning treatment, which will help to initiate the repair process, continuing until you see a marked improvement in the quality of your hair. Once youíve tackled the damaged hair, you can shift your focus to encouraging new healthy hair growth. Stimulate the follicles with regular scalp massage, using a detoxifying Ďexfoliatingí shampoo, which helps to promote growth further. If you worry that diet or an underlying health issue is affecting normal hair growth then speak to a Trichologist Ė hair loss clinics such as Unlimited Hairloss Solutions, who we recommend to our clients suffering from thinning hair Ė can help you with this. If you really canít wait for your new healthy hair to return then you should consider extensions.
At our nine Westrow salons we offer hugely effective, seamless extensions that wonít damage existing hair, however any local professional stylist or salon that specialises in extensions will be able to help you find the right type to suit your hair, your hair goals and your lifestyle.

Hi Zsanet, if you havenít had to mix 2 solutions together and you have sealed the one colour you used you will be fine to reuse for normally up to 1 year as a basic guide.

Hi, Iím sixteen years old and for the last 2 years my hair has refused to wash properly and I donít know what Iím doing wrong. When someone else washes it for me itís fine but when I wash it, it feels sticky almost and static once dry. I have tried everything and asking my family to help with washing is no longer an option, please help?

It sounds to me like you need to try changing your washing technique. Before applying shampoo, run water through your hair for at least a minute Ė this helps get rid of any product residue and prep the hair for shampoo. When you do apply your shampoo, make sure you massage it into a really good lather. For a more effective clean, work the shampoo in with your fingertips, in circular motions, starting at the hairline and moving down to the nape of your neck, only massaging shampoo in to your roots, and letting it cleanse the rest of the hair as you rinse the product out. Try a second shampoo if youíve been using a lot of product, as you may be suffering from a build-up thatís causing residue and leaving your hair with that sticky feel. Regular shampoo isnít always enough to cut through excessive and long-term product build-up from serums, sprays and heat protectant products, so if a second shampoo doesnít work, try a clarifying shampoo. Be sure to completely rinse out your shampoo before applying conditioner. Overuse of conditioner can potentially cause hair to become weighed down and sticky, so avoid this by only applying it where itís needed. As a general rule, when applying conditioner stick to applying it just through the ends: the oldest and therefore driest part of your hair that needs it the most.
Work the conditioner into the very bottom of your hair, slathering on any leftover product up the mid-lengths, but no higher. This should help to avoid using excess product that can cause build-up and stickiness. Again make sure you rinse out the conditioner properly, to avoid that sticky texture. You may also be using a conditioner that is too heavy for your hair type. If you have fine or naturally oily hair, you may not need to use something as heavy as someone with thick, dry, coarse or damaged hair. If thatís the case, switch to a lightweight conditioner or even a leave-in conditioning spray. Using too much heat on the head can both exacerbate oiliness (which could be causing your hair to Ďstickí) and increase static in the hair, so wash your hair with lukewarm water, never hot, and finish with a cool rinse, plus a cool blast of the hairdryer once youíre finished styling, to smooth the hair and reduce your chances of static.
