Becki asks:

Constantly straightening your hair will thin it over time which isnít a good thing. There is nothing wrong with having thick hair, you just need to know how to manage and maintain it in order to get the best results. I recommend using a specific shampoo and conditioner for thicker hair in order to tame and also use a treatment such a my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment which helps put the love back into battered hair which is styled a lot. Keep the volume and thickness to a certain extent by blow-drying your hair in layers after washing and use a paddle brush. Afterwards, use your straighteners to go over the ends to get a sleek, straight finish. Always use heat protection spray to stop your ends from breaking and finish with a shine spray for a glossy, gorgeous look!





Laura asks:
For about 2 years Iíve been having my hair bleached blonde (by a professional hairdresser) but Iím fed up of it now. Itís in a bad condition (dry and brittle) and Iíd prefer a more natural colour. Iím aware that the bleach cannot be removed to get my natural colour back, but I read somewhere that it can be dyed red followed by a colour to closely match your natural shade? Iím unsure whether this would be a wise route to take, because I donít want it to turn out a big mess. Iíve also considered the option of growing out my bleached hair, whilst dying the roots a light blonde to avoid too much contrast between my natural mousy-brown colour and the platinum blonde. Would you recommend either of these methods? Preferably, I would like to avoid anything that would require professional assistance as it can be very expensive.

Be particularly careful when changing the colour of your hair at home. You must remember to put the protein back in to keep hair lustrous and beautiful as colouring can strip it of goodness. To go back to brunette from bleach blonde is something best done in two stages. In order to go back to brunette you firstly need to dye your hair red as if you simply try and dye your hair from bleach blonde to brunette it will go green! Once your hair is red you can then apply a medium brown colour on top of this, I would suggest starting with a lighter brown colour at first as it is easy to go a shade darker or two than waiting for far too dark brown hair to fade. If you havenít dyed your hair before I would really recommend going to a hairdressers and having it done properly as it is easy for things to go wrong when youíre dying your hair for the first time. Once youíre back to brunette I would recommend using my Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner which act as deeply intensive moisturizers, to refresh and revitalize coloured hair. The luxuriously thick formulas will help to repair the damage and drying effects that colouring hair can causeÖ..keeping colour vibrant and hair in fantastic condition. Colour specific products are an absolute must for putting the moisture back in after hair has been left battered and bruised by different colour processes. In between visits to the salon, disguise root re-growth with either of my TWO shades of new Dry Shampoo Ė Iíve brought out a mid-brown and dark!







Mini asks:
I have to straighten my hair since its thick but what should I apply to give it a final touch to make it shine

Before you straighten your hair, remember you should always use heat protection spray to stop hair from becoming damaged and weak. In the long run your hair will be healthier and shinier too. To add shine after styling try Shine Head Spray Shine. It leaves hair glossy, shiny and looking GORGEOUS!!í
