G asks:
I have shoulder length hair which Iíve dyed black but the colour is washing out. My hair is extremely thick, curly/frizzy (softer afro Caribbean) and takes two hours to straighten. I get good results blow-drying it (volume and shine) but that takes an hour. My face is round/heart shaped with a very short neck. Skin tone is olive with brown eyes. Iím looking for a sleek mid length style but worried about maintaining the polished look as my hair frizzes easily. Iíd also love a more interesting brown colour with maybe a few lowlights, what would be your suggestions?

The obvious thing to state here is the shorter you go and the more weight you remove from your hair the harder it will be to straighten. Having said that there is a new product/service on the market that some salons are offering now called the íBrasiliana Blow Dryí. This is NOT a straightening process but a blow dry that can last up to 3 months. What this will do is dramatically soften your hair and reduce the blow dry time by a third.

Colour wise this is more tricky as you have a black shade on your hair already and this will be difficult to lift out without bleaching, which of course will dry your hair out.

Pinto asks:
I am a 15 year old girl. I have got black curly hair, that is quite thick, up to my shoulders. I like the slightly tousled hairstyle. I would like to sport in when Iím out with my friends. I like it because it looks natural, casual and lovely. How can I get this style at home?

This sounds like you need the right product for your hair.

I would strongly recommend Sebastian Potion 9. This is a leave in conditioner that can be applied after you have washed and towel dried your hair. Apply a small amount to the middle length to the ends of the hair and then either let your hair dry naturally or very gently dry your hair with a diffuser on the end of your hair dryer at a slow speed and on a coolish setting.

John asks:
I have really thick hair it annoys me so much every time I go to get my hair cut I get it thinned out but then within 4-5 days it is back to how it was what could I do to help prevent this?

The WORST thing you could have done is your hair thinned especially if this is done with thinning scissors.

I would recommend having your hair skimmed with a razor, this way your hair will become easier to manage and you will not be having difficulty 4-5 days later.
