I have got very long thick naturally brown hair. I want to lighten it
in the sun on my next holiday, I have been told that vinegar will lighten brown hair in the sun as opposed to lemon in blonde hair. Is that true or is my work mate having a laugh?

I think they might be pulling your leg, and if this was a well known fact that worked, I think a lot of people would be using it instead of purchasing professional hair colour kits from the shop or having their hair coloured properly by a hairdresser. I think that if you want to be sure of a certain look and keep your hair in good condition, then a visit to the hairdressers might work better.

Why is my hair not growing? I do use straighteners but I do not use them all the time. Please can you help?
|Answered By: |
I have news for you. Almost everyones hair grows every day on any part of their body. All at different paces, some fine, some thick etc. It would seem like you are very focused on your hair each day and looking for visible signs of additional length. It takes approximately 6 weeks for your hair to grow between 1cm - 2cm so any visible difference will take at least 6-9 months.
Using straighteners every day without proper protection can also damage the outer hair shaft which might slow down the growing process. There could also be a deficiency in minerals that help stimulate the hair follicles. Most of the chemists have minerals specifically designed for hair and nails. It will usually take about 6 months for you to see any real difference.

I have extremely thick coarse curly hair and I'm really not sure how to get it cut. the hair stylist I've been going to, really doesn't know how to cut my hair. So I'm looking for a new hair stylist, but are there certain ways or techniques for cutting curly hair? Also, I've heard combing a perm through curly hair takes out the frizz, is that true?

Iím over the moon to hear you are sourcing a new hair stylist. Once someone has taken a pair of scissors to your hair, it is all too late to rectify, and it is important that you trust your hairdresser. íProtectioní really is better than cure! A good, professional hairdresser will advise which styles are open to you, and will take into consideration the length of your hair and the volume of curl. I would recommend that if in its natural state, is beyond shoulder length, to perhaps opt for a sweeping fringe, (no shorter than your chin when curly) with a few layers so when the hair is straighten with irons, you can have a versatile look; the fringe could be secured in a quiff, or flicked out to give you that beyonce-esque look, with cascading layers. My new Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Irons (£48, Promo £33 Exclusive to Boots) are just the trick, with their curved plate edges they are perfect for straightening and curling, and the tourmaline ceramic floating plates guarantee perfect parallel straightening for less snagging and stress to hair. Protect as you style with my P250 Professional Curling Iron Protection Mist (£6.99-200ml exclusive To Boots) or Kodo Thermal Protecting Spray, it is proven to protect hair from the heat damaging effects of irons up to 250c, and sprayed onto dry hair before styling, the product will secure curls with a non-crispy lasting hold, even in high humidity.
