I am mixed race and have dark thick hair with tight curls. I love my curls but they only appear after I wash my hair. I would like to
wear them to school but do not have time to wash my hair in the morning so any advice please for keeping the curls in at night without frizz?

First of all you need a good hair cut that will emphasise the curls and keep them in better condition. A square graduation on the shoulder length hair is best. On longer hair one needs to keep some layers. Use rich moisturizing shampoos and conditioners and treat your hair to an intensive mask once a week. After cleansing hair blot dry and working on a section at a time work the serum through, then the curl cream. Twist each curl round your finger and leave to dry naturally. Do not brush your hair merely loosen curls by raking with fingers when dry.

I have recently purchased hair extensions as I wanted to add length to my hair, at the moment its shoulder length and I am hoping to get it long. However the hair extensions do not blend with my hair length it looks like two completely different hair lengths, the colour is ok as its pretty close to my natural colour. I just need to blend the lengths better, and as my hair is quite medium thickness it stands out as a complete different hair style on top of the extensions. Have you got any ideas that may help me?

Did you purchase your hair extensions over the internet? Usually if they supply colour charts it is difficult to get the right blend.I think it would be better for you to visit a shop that stocks a variety of hair colours, lengths and types in order for them to help you match the nearest colour to your own hair. Sometimes they have colour ringsthat might help you. Usually there are three main regions hair is supplied from: India, China regions and Europe. This will dictate the thickness of the hair so it would be a good idea to find out which one suits your hair type better. With regards to getting them blended and looking natural, I suggest you visit a hair extensions technician who is qualified to give you that natural overall professional finish

I have been having weaves done for about a year but I find the synthetic hair weaves I am buying break really easily and do not
retain the thickness for very long. I try not to comb the extensions to often but I still end up with hair breaking off onto the floor. Perhaps I should be buying better quality weaves, can you recommend a particular brand and where can I buy it from.

Some people prefer to use synthetic hair because it is lighter and stays straighter if using straight hair or curly if using curly. It can be easier to manage if just rinsed and left to dry normally. However synthetic has developed and you can now purchase what is known as Thermo fibre which can endure heat up to 180c. It feels and acts like human hair and is available in up to 29 colours. It can be purchased as machine weft, clip in or the top ends pre-bonded. With regards to shredding, this might have a lot to do with the type of brush you are using and how you prepare your hair before you go to bed. It is best to use a nylon bristle brush that can groom through the hair without pulling it. With regards to wearing your hair whilst you sleep, I recommend you plait it before you go to bed. The reason for this is whilst you are sleeping, you might be moving around and this would cause the hair to tangle. In the morning if the incorrect brush is used and you are trying to detangle your hair, this will result in loss of hair due to the amount of brushing.
