Jj asks:
Can I use a John Frieda colour treating shampoo & a Pantene colour treating conditioner in the same wash? Or is it risky to mix two different brands when it comes to coloured hair?

Jj, It’s fine and safe to mix both brands.

Mary asks:
Hi! I was born with very white blonde hair, over the years it faded to a more mousy brown, 6 or 7 years ago I started getting a lot of thin highlights all over to get it to a lighter blonde. For the past year I have not put any bleach in my hair and have cut around 6 inches of dead ends off. Now it is a little longer than shoulder length and mostly a mousy brassy dirty blonde and a small amount of very light highlights towards the end remain. I really want to bleach my entire head for an all over blonde. I went to a hairdresser and they said that if I did this the parts of my hair that were already bleached would completely fall/break off, another hair dresser didn’t suggest I do it because it wouldn’t look good after the roots grew in. I really don’t care about the roots showing so that’s not my problem, but obviously I don’t want my hair falling off. I have extremely healthy thick wavy hair. I never use heat on it or any product at all. Will my hair really fall out if I bleach it, considering the parts that are highlighted were done a full year ago? I will still go to a professional to get it done obviously. Please let me know because I hate the way my hair looks now.

Hi Mary I can’t see a problem at all with you having a high lift blonde colour all over. The effect on the highlights will give a multi tonal effect and as you state your hair is in good condition I think it will look great and a more natural look overall. The fact that you are aware that the roots being naturally darker will show through quickly and that you have no grey hair make sure the stylists uses a cool blonde formulation. This will make sure you don’t have an unnatural golden look. Really good luck

Mohamed asks:
I have been using the wrong products on my hair for the past few years, which has resulted dry, frizzy, and unmanageable locks along with a flakey scalp. Please can you recommend a treatment and products that will help with this problem?

Use a deep conditioning treatment on a weekly basis, and make sure that a good hair oil or restructuring product is part of your haircare routine.
The Kérastase Résistance collection is a range of haircare products that fight the symptoms of damaged hair and will help to keep hair in optimum condition. If you don’t want to try the full range of products, incorporate either the Masque Thérapiste or the Masque Force Architecte in to your hair routine, once a week, to encourage weaker damaged hairs to repair themselves. The Sérum Thérapiste is also a great investment, as it helps to seal and heal hair and reduce the appearance of split ends, while protecting hair from heat damage.
Kérastase has an excellent range of products you can use to stimulate the growth cells on your scalp, so it’s worth investing in these to help with your problem. I recommend Kérastase Bain Stimuliste GL, which is an energising shampoo for hair prone to hair loss, and Kérastase Lotion Densitive GL, which will add texture and substance. There are also a few lifestyle and diet tweaks you can make to ensure hair is in optimum health. Try swapping a cotton pillow for a silk or satin one, to avoid overnight hair breakage, and be gentle when brushing delicate wet hair. Usually our hair growth is determined by our genes, however diet and lifestyle can also have an effect on hair growth rate. Stress, alcohol and excess sugar can all contribute to poor scalp and hair health. Foods thought to improve hair growth include salmon and organic eggs, which are both full of hair health-boosting protein and omega 3, oysters, which are rich in zinc, (a zinc deficiency has been linked to hair loss), avocado, sweet potato and almonds. There are supplements available at health food shops and online, which can supplement your diet with additional vitamins and minerals, if you feel you need some extra nutritional support.
