I have curly hair, and I get my regular trims and moisturize. My hair has broken off so much, especially all around my edges. I do not use heat on my hair, I try to use natural products, I havenít dyed my hair in a few years, and I donít wear tight styles. I have tried to apply oil to my hair, like olive oil, coconut oil, rosehip oil, jojoba oil, and nothing is strengthening my hair. My hair snaps off so easily as if it lacks elasticity. I can hear the static in my hair when I detangle it. I have been trying to strengthen my hair for a year now, and nothing is working for me. What should I do?

I am sorry to hear your hair is so fragile, may I suggest you take a food supplement specially formulated for hair and nails, I think this will really help?
Also invest in a protein shampoo, conditioner and treatment mask; have a strict hair care regime and monitor the difference over 3 months. If you really donít see and improvement I would have a blood test and see if perhaps there is something else causing the problem, it is astounding how medication, contraceptive pill etc., can affect the hair. Good luck

I have been going to the hairdressers for a few years, to get blonde balayage on the ends of my hair which is what I had until recently. But a few days ago I decided to go darker and bought a Loreal at home dye that washes out after 8 weeks, however, it turned out way too dark and being impatient, I bought ColourB4 hair colour remover and applied this the next day. Now my hair has reverted to almost my natural brown but with a very strong reddish tint :( how can I get my balayage back? How soon is too soon to go to a hairdresser and ask them to fix it using permanent dye? I have heard if you use permanent dye too soon after ColourB4 this can revert your hair to very dark, however I donít know if this applies to me since I only used a temporary at home dye. Please help!

Thereís a general rule which is tint will not lift tint, so to get back to your lightened balyage you will need to have your hair bleached. Often the wash-out colours still contain a second ingredient that has to be mixed in, this is an activator that means this is still a chemical colour. Previously this may have been an issue with so many chemical processes on your hair in a short period of time, but with the technology in salons these days such as products like INNNOluxe, which rebuilds the hair during the colouring process, hairdressers can achieve more than ever. What is possible in one visit will always depend on the condition of your hair and your hairdresser should advise you exactly what they do for you during the consultation.

Treatment for Reduced Hair Volume (aka hair thinning)
The best way to treat a gradual reduction in volume is to apply daily anti-androgenic scalp drops, which help to protect your hair follicles from the miniaturizing effects of male hormones. We make drops called Tricho 7. Oral contraceptives, such as Yasmin and Dianette, can also be helpful Ė but you must talk to your doctor about the pros and cons of taking these and whether they are suitable options. It is also important to assess whether an underlying factor is at play. Conditions like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which can raise androgen levels, may worsen a genetic reduction in hair volume. Unfortunately, treating reduced volume is not quick. As it happens so slowly, it can take many years to become aware of it Ė and as a consequence, treatment takes time.
Treatment for Telogen Effluvium
To treat excessive daily hair fall you must first find the cause, and then take steps to rectify it. Luckily, a telogen effluvium will right itself once you do this. For instance, if you are losing too much hair due to a poor diet or nutritional deficiency, re-assessing eating habits, as well as taking relevant nutritional supplements will help. We make a nutritional supplement called Tricho Complex, that is formulated for the unique nutritional demands of hair cells. If you have an underlying medical condition, such as hyper or hypo thyroid, taking medications will help. And if you are stressed, you should find a stress-reducing activity that you are comfortable with - such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation Pilates or swimming. Often, more than one thing can be going on Ė and you will have to make changes accordingly. Re-formatting your lifestyle and diet is not always fun, and stress management certainly isnít easy Ė but they will definitely benefit your hair.
With any hair loss, whether you have a gradual reduction in volume, or you are losing too much hair, a holistic approach to treatment is essential. This involves targeting the hair follicle itself, bolstering the strength or strands with products, and giving your hair extra nutritional support. We formulated a 3-step holistic regime, called Trichotherapy, specifically for women with hair loss and/or reduced hair volume. It contains anti-androgenic drops (Tricho 7), a thickening protein spray (Tricho Pro), as well as a multi vitamin and mineral supplement (Tricho Complex).
