Lauren asks:
Iím planning on getting my hair fully bleached at a salon soon and Iím getting a pastel pink toner all over. Iíve been told it will need a lot of upkeeping and Iím not sure where to start. I have looked around for ímust dosí with bleached hair and Iíve spotted hair masks, conditioners, oil etc. But my biggest concern is washing it. Do you know of any shampoos or other cleaning products that would be suitable for a pastel pink toner on newly bleached hair?

Hi Lauren, The most important thing with bleach is to keep the hair in good condition. This means using shampoo for colour treated hair, a regular treatment mask and a conditioner that you comb through before rinising. If the bleached hair is kept in good condition the pastel pink will last longer, I suggest to my clients to mix some of the pink toner into a bottle with their conditioner creating a pink conditioner and use every time you shampoo your hair. Leave it on a few minutes and comb through before rinsing.
Good luck, I am sure you will love it!





Theresa asks:
Hi, I am going through the menopause and suffer extreme scalp sweats. Is there anything I can use to help with the embarrassment of this? My hair is short but I still suffer terrible sweating.

Extreme sweating is an unfortunate side effect of many things, including the menopause. There are certain lifestyle changes you can make to try and reduce the amount of sweating Ė diet, for example, can play an important role Ė so speak to your doctor about ways to try and tackle the issue. Unfortunately hair and scalp products wonít help to solve this problem, however, there are certain products you can use to try and alleviate any side effects and to try and mask the appearance of excess sweat. ...More >

Firstly, a sweaty scalp can clog your pores and affect your hair follicles. This can prevent healthy hair growth, so using a product that removes the build-up and prevents clogging is essential to maintaining scalp health, hair growth and length. Sweat can also dry out your scalp, which can also have a negative effect on hair growth. A gentle clarifying shampoo, used every couple of washes, or an exfoliating shampoo, used once a week, will help to remove build-up caused by over-sweating, that can lead to itchy flaky scalp and that can inhibit healthy hair growth. If your scalp sweats all the time, youíre probably tempted to wash it daily, so that it feels and looks clean, but bear in mind that over-washing your hair can over-stimulate oil production, which will mean further build up. Try to avoid daily hair washing if you can and instead use a good dry shampoo, to soak up excess oil and sweat and add volume in between washes. Dry shampoo is designed to absorb excess moisture away from your hair and scalp, leaving the hair looking clean. Apply it directly to your roots and rub it in.

Aside from leading to blocked follicles and a flaky scalp, sweat can also dry out your hair and scalp. Finding a hydrating shampoo that will protect your strands and keep your hair healthy is a great way to fight against this. A deep-conditioning treatment will also help to replace lost moisture, as will a leave-in conditioner. The leave-in conditioner will have the added benefit of acting like a barrier, between the sweat and your hair, preventing over-drying.

Finally, the natural salts in sweat can cause your hair to lose its colour quickly, so if you colour your hair, you may need extra protection from colour fade. A colour preserving shampoo, conditioner and spray will do the trick.







Cassidy asks:
1. What type of haircut would you recommend for me? My hair is currently shoulder length. I am looking for something that I can part on either side of my head, and ideally still pull up into a ponytail.
2. How do I get my curls to "bounce back" on the top layer of my hair/not look stretched out?
3. My current wash and style routine is a very delicate process that usually requires my diffusing my hair, which takes a lot of time. Is there a shorter regimen that I should follow (I am a college student with little time in the morning)?
4. Are there any products within a college studentís budget that are go-toís/must-haveís for people with curly hair? Any other suggestions and/or guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance! Best, Cassidy

Hello Cassidy Letís tackle you questions one at a time:

1. What type of haircut would you recommend for me?
I think with Curly hair a bob shape, of any length works perfectly, slightly inverted is good as well. This way you can switch the parting and still tie it all back or just the top if you opt for a short version. ( see some images above) using a wand or heated rollers can help create softer curls too when you feel like a change. ...More >

2. How do I get my curls to "bounce back" on the top layer of my hair/not look stretched out?
Having long layers through the top sections so losing a bit of the old over straightened hair will really help for starters.

3. My current wash and style routine is a very delicate process that usually requires my diffusing my hair, which takes a lot of time. Is there a shorter regimen that I should follow (I am a college student with little time in the morning)?
I would suggest that you squeeze as much water out of your hair with a towel before combing through and leaving to dry naturally with product in or diffusing, donít shampoo everyday use a water spray bottle with conditioner added to spray on day old hair to revitalize your curls and dry shampoo at the roots if required.

4. Are there any products within a college studentís budget that are go-toís/must-haveís for people with curly hair?
I think as long as you are using moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, a weekly moisture mask and you comb through the conditioner or mask before rinsing. As far as styling your custard seems to work well for you so I would continue with that, but as you dry (diffuse) or leave your hair to dry naturally, put your fingers into the root area and shake it out, this will stop the product drying so hard and so flat to your head. It will aslo prevent the triangle affect that you currently experience. I really hope this helps you!
