Beth asks:
I am a girl and I shaved my sideburns but I want my natural ones back, I cannot wear my hair up because it looks a mess. What should I do?

Why did you decide to shave your side burns? Did you not use to wear your hair up before? I think it is important that you decide whether you like your side burns or not, because this will impact on how you continue to treat them. Unless you have had your side burns permanently removed, the usual re-growth cycle should be every 5-6 weeks. It really depends on how quickly your hair grows. Perhaps you could get some advice from a beautician who does facial waxing, she might be able to give them a nicer shape if you are unhappy with them or thin them out if you think they are too thick. I suggest you continue to wear your hair down until they grow back.

Laura asks:
I have recently read about the new straightening product available on the high street (Boots) which permanently straightens your hair. I am very interested in this as the Yuko system is too expensive for me (am a student!). I have highlights though which contain some bleach (half head). The product does not recommend use on coloured or highlighted hair, would it be safe to use? What could happen? I have dark blonde shoulder length thick hair.

I do not know which product you are thinking of but I would not recommend straightening your own hair at home, this is a chemical process and needs to be done by an expert in a salon.

Erik asks:
My hair is naturally mouse brown and wavy. I have a long shoulder-length modern mullet with thick unlayered bangs down to my eyes. I have it dyed to a 3n colour which fades quickly. I flat iron my hair every day to keep it pin straight and maintain an edgy look. However, when I first wash it, it looks way too fluffy. I need to weigh it down somehow to make it look heavier and not so light feeling. If I wash it in the morning it looks good that night due to the natural oils but then, the next day it looks alright in the morning but quite greasy by the evening. It also starts to develop some flaking at this point. My question is, how can I get my hair to not get so greasy so fast but still give it a bit of initial weight? I also need to use colour shampoos and conditioners to keep my hair from fading to red. I also do not like the dandruff which occurs. Essentially my hair is so high maintenance that I need a new hobby, but would like some help on these issues if you can suggest anything! Also, when I sleep the mullet gets all tangled and curly which is difficult to re-straighten.

GOSH!! It sounds like a great amount of work that you are putting into your hair. I really thing you need to treat your scalp as a number 1 priority, you getting the dandruff for the amount of oil that your scalp its segregating. Get yourself a good shampoo that would dry your scalp but not deteriorate your colour, I will like to recommend the J.F. Lazartigue range first the Marine Shampoo. Now for your hair I would like to suggest a heavier conditioner, the moisturizing conditioner is great and try using the straightening balm which will help your hair to lock in moisture plus keep it straight for longer
