Tony asks:
I am a 23 year old male. I have brown, very thick and curly hair. I have to keep my hair very short because as it gets longer it wonít spike up properly as itís too curly and thick. I wear my hair spiked up. I want to be able to style my hair more but I canít as I need to keep it short. The forum mentions hair straightening creams etc but is it for hair as short as mine - 2cm when spiked up? What would you recommend that I do or use?

I have the same type of hair so I appreciate your situation. If your hair is very curly and thick I would suggest having a chemical straightening process which can be done in the salon.

This will help you style your hair in the way you would like, but make sure you book a consultation first to discuss your requirements.

I straighten my hair, it looks really nice, but when I get to school, my hair goes flicky any advice?

It would seem as if the sections youíre taking are too thick and too big. Try taking finer sections and donít rush the process, go slow.

Wendy asks:
My problem started when I used Nioxin shampoo/conditioner/ follicle booster. I used these products a little more than a month. Suddenly I had an allergic reaction my scalp was very sensitive, in addition to using these products; I also used their root lifter volumizer. After that application thatís when the reaction occurred. To calm my scalp, I used Dr. Miracles edges and nape balm which resulted in thinning. To counter all this, I used rosemary oil to try and stimulate hair growth. My derm prescribed clobetasol propionate. This calmed it down and my hair seemed to be doing fine because the shedding seemed to stop. Now, on some areas of my head I can see my scalp. My hair used to be very thick and long. When I shampoo my hair, my scalp still feels irritated and tight my dermatologist said that I had no follicle damage and in time my hair will grow back. I am depressed and scared that my hair will never grow back. Do you think my follicles are damaged and does an irritated scalp mean that my follicles have been damaged? I tried the jojoba oil but it did not help. Please help, totally stressed out!

Based on what your derm said I would say that your follicles are not damaged and getting stressed out will only make matters worse. What you need to do is make sure that you are eating a healthy balanced diet. Plenty of protein and omegas. A high dose of B Complex will also help. Make sure you get these from a good health food store. Do not purchase cheap drug store brands as these are not sufficient.

Try no to stress, aromatherapy help. Take warm baths and use some lavender oil or clary sage.
