Stephanie asks:
My daughter is mixed with white and black her hair is naturally curly and has the same texture as a full white person soft and easy to manage. In 2008 I took her to a salon to get a straightener put on her hair, well the stylist used a relaxer for a black personís type of hair. Her hair length was about bra strap level she decided to get it cut to her shoulders. Well its 2012 and her hair has not grown at all, she gets the ends trimmed regularly and has been using clip in extensions for the past year. She only uses salon hair products, we have tried biotin vitamins and different hair products, what else can we do, her hair is still thick and soft, just short!

This is a tough one really as it sounds like your doing everything right. It seems to me that the relaxer used in 2008 has damaged the hair to the point that the hair will only get to a certain length and then break. Another alternative to consider is a Keratin treatment which a lot of salons now offer. This entails keratin being put into the hair and the benefits are excellent shine and far more manageable hair. Also a by product of this treatment is that it smoothes and straightens the hair but itís important to say itís not a straightening treatment, but it is a kinder way to treat the hair.

Hannah asks:
I recently had my dark brown hair highlighted blonde. The hairdresser used 12% on my hair, its very thick and strong, I want more highlights in to make me lighter but really wary about having it done. Should she have used 12%? My hair feels a bit dry and the highlights are blonde. What should I have next time I get it done?

To be honest if you are naturally dark brown then sometimes hairdressers have to use 12% in order to get the lift you require. If you want more blonde highlights in your hair I would ask them to do a strand test first to make sure the condition and strength of your hair will cope with more colour.

Steve asks:
I have short hair (not much longer than an inch) but it is very thick and I am trying to grow it, is my hair too short to get it layered?

Leave your hair as long as possible maybe 6-8 weeks to allow some length, and then it may be long enough to be layered
