Diane asks:
I have very long (almost down to my hips when straight) hair and it is naturally extremely frizzy despite the fact I condition it constantly I have found the only way to control my hair is to put it into two French plates when wet and take them out once dry then hairspray the hell out of this which works great! For about two hours if I am lucky! When I had shoulder length hair when I was younger it was completely untameable! Is there anything I can try to keep my hair from frizzing? I have tried basically every serum, conditioner, leave in conditioner etc that you can buy!

Depending on the thickness of your hair or if you like to leave it natural looking, a good crème would be if you haven’t tried it already is Mazani moisture stretch curl crème, this product contains shea butter which moisturises and tames hair as well as working as a anti humiditant agent. When using your conditioning treatments always towel dry your hair before applying the conditioner as the water can dilute the conditioner and stop it from working, best to leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. I also highly recommend you get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks even if it’s the smallest amount, this keeps hair tamed and frizz controlled as dead ends tend to frizz easier working its way up to the healthy hair.





Laura asks:
I have long blonde highlighted hair which is very fine and flyaway. It is very fluffy when I wake up in the morning and so I always have to wash it. What products are best to use as I never know whether to use shampoos and conditioners designed for coloured hair or for fine hair. Also, what styling tools/products would you suggest?

It sounds to me like you are suffering from damaged hair - as I’m sure you know highlighting hair, especially with bleach is incredibly damaging and combined with your fine hair you need some tlc!

Limit the number of times you shampoo your hair per week. If you can stretch the amount of time in-between shampoos this gives hair time to rest and for the natural hair oils to accumulate. Use a moisturizing shampoo such as my Bleach Blonde Shampoo which helps repair bleached hair and gently tone any yellow to a gorgeous ashy baby blonde. Wash hair ONLY in lukewarm water. Hot water will dry out the cuticle and enhance any existing damage. Rinse hair many times until all shampoo has been completely removed. Always rinse with cool to cold water. This seals newly added moisture back into the cuticle. Avoid using hot styling tools which will exacerbate the dryness of any chemically damaged hair. Allow hair to air dry. To add curls or waves use, pin curls, rag or soft sponge rollers. Avoid heat styling. Take hair vitamins designed to strengthen hair. These will help the hair to repair itself from the root area as the strands grow. Use only a smooth, wide toothed combs and brush damaged hair only as needed. Never brush spongy or damaged hair when wet. If the damage does not improve after a few weeks, visit a hair care professional for salon conditioning treatments. Have damaged ends removed. Avoid applying any additional chemicals to severely damaged hair. Drink lots of water, get plenty of rest and treat your hair with TLC







Andy asks:
I am probably asking this in the wrong place, but no matter how often I ask people no-one gives me a good answer and its a simple question. What is the difference between all hair products like, wax, gel, gum, clay, putty etc. I use VO5 texturising gum at the moment but I would like to be better informed about the qualities of the others. Thanks for reading your reply will be anticipated greatly

What a great question. We can’t really talk about other companies because, the names they sometimes call their products are totally irrelevant to how they perform. We would suggest looking at the product benefits on the packaging rather than the actual names.We have just launched Hairbond our first two Hairbond products (Moulder and Sculptor) around the UK last month and our brand concept is that we find and test the best hair products on the market in professional salons, and research ways how to improve them even more, e.g product performance, smell, packaging etc. We also only use UK manufacturers. Here is a brief description to how they work on the hair: Moulder – Thick dry product that does not look greasy and, gives great shape and hold. Sculptor -Wet look shine that leaves the hair with texture and a gloss finish without drying out
