Lindsey asks:
Hi my hair is thick with white roots. I get my hair coloured at salon regularly but would love to go light and then just tone. How do I choose the correct shade? I have dark eyes but light skin.

Lindsey you donít say how long your hair is, but my suggestion is have a big hair cut, have lots of highlights instead of roots coloured and invest in some professional moisturizing hair care products. That way you get a lighter look, tip top condition hair and a good idea of how light and the type of tone that works best for you. Your hair dresser will advise if cool or warm tones are best for you. Colour conditioners are great for helping maintain your results. Good luck and go for it!

Alrika asks:
I have very thin straight hair and would love a fuller, thicker hair look, but cannot seem get my hair any thicker, no matter what i try. Is there any specific thing i should be doing to get thicker hair? Also, i love the short wavy hair look, but i struggle in getting the waves to look right and to stay, should use a different method for the waves, or should I just give in and grow my hair longer.

When trying to achieve thicker hair there are various ways of enhancing the look of hair. The most common complaint amongst women with fine hair is that their style lacks body and bounce. For this problem, it is recommended to look for volumizing shampoos, conditioners and styling products containing plant proteins, such as quinoa and also hydrolysed keratin, which helps to give bulk to individual strands of hair. People with thin hair have more oil glands on their scalp which means it gets weighed down easily and appears flat. Philip Kingsley Tricho Pro is recommended as it helps to protect the hair Ė reducing breakage by hair being easier to comb. Damage and breakage can thin the appearance of the mid-lengths and ends. For a voluminous foundation style, use of a lightweight body building shampoo such as Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo is advised followed by Philip Kingsley Body Building Conditioner, to smooth the cuticle and help prevent flyaways. When applying conditioner, apply from mid-length to ends to avoid limp and lacklustre roots. After washing your hair, the PK Tricho pro thickening protein spray (part of the Philip Kingsley Trichotherapy Range) can be applied from mid lengths to ends. Trichotherapy contains stimulating anti-androgenic scalp drops that help to encourage healthy hair growth from the follicle - a thickening, strengthening protein spray that adds immediate body and helps to improve the integrity of strands over time. When styling hair it is important to remember that fine hair is more fragile, so use of a thickening heat protective spray such as PK Perfecting Spray is essential when applying heat. PK Prep Plumping Cream is also available for thickening hair, this can be used to add bulk to strands of hair. Hair trimming is feared by some because of loss of length but hair trimming helps to create the appearance of thicker hair whilst maintaining healthy hair by eliminating split ends.

Chloe asks:
Hi, Thanks for reading my question. First I have straightened my hair for around 3/4 years daily as it was frizzy but it has now began to fall out and has gone really short. I have tried all sorts of treatments such as hair masks and deep conditioning as well as hair shampoos and conditioners such as John frieda and Garnier Blends targeting dry and frizzy hair which hasnít worked. Last week I went to get a Brazilian blowdry which was said to make my hair more manageable, where less heat would have to be used on my hair so I could give it a chance to grow, however this hasnít worked. I cannot go without straightening my hair at all as it is far too frizzy, however, by straightening my hair is falling out and I no longer know what to do. Any suggestions ? Many thanks

It sounds like a Brazilian Blowdry, also known as Brazilian Keratin treatment, would be perfect for your hair to save you from having to over blow dry and over straighten your hair, but there are two issues that come to mind. Firstly, the newer Keratin treatments work by injecting natural proteins into the hair, but itís vital with these treatments to respect the moisture/protein balance. If your hair is really dehydrated and the hairdresser has not infused moisture in before or during the treatment, then you may not be receiving the benefits youíre expecting. A quick and easy fix may be all that is needed, try adding high-quality moisturising ingredients which could possibly restore the moisture/protein balance. Moisture Mask by KeraStraight (rrp £26.50) contains Palmeira Tucuma and Carob Bean Extracts to add moisture without weight. Alternatively you could visit a KeraStraight salon and have an in-salon Intense Boost treatment which is a 30-day treatment that repairs, strengthens and hydrates; this would not straighten your hair, but could rebalance your hair and bring out the benefits of your previous Brazilain Treatment. Secondly, like all products, thereís a huge choice out there and thereís a great deal of difference between the best and the not so great. The second option, if you believe that your previous treatment just hasnít worked, is to wait 30 days and have a KeraStraight Ultimate Treatment, which is a 4-month straightening and repairing treatment. Ultimate is the most advanced Keratin treatment that feeds multiple proteins deep into the hair and realigns the shape of the hair for up to 4 months. None of these treatments are recommended as wash and leave, but more to minimise the time and effort needed and also to rejuvenate the hair so the little time and heat required is not harmful to your hair in any way and you have the added benefit of KeraStraight delivering fantastic anti-humidity benefits. You can find your nearest KeraStraight salon from the Salon Locator.
