Beth asks:
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

Maria asks:
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.

Jess asks:
My hair is very thick, frizzy/curly and some hairdressers described it as mixed race hair meaning it is partly like an afro. I went about 6 months ago to a hair dresser and asked for it to be thinned for some reason she started layering it but she did not seem to be doing it in any style or form she literally hacked into my hair and took chunks out of it. So I now have hair that is partly long but some bits are short just at the back but it looks awful. I use to have light blonde hair but through my teens it has turned mousey blonde I think it would look cool to have chunks of chocolate brown in my hair to give a funky look, as funky is what I want it to be

I would like to suggest you use an all over high gloss semi-permanent colour in a chocolate brown tone, as for the haircut, perhaps it is better if you maintain your hair long as you cut it short it would perhaps become an Afro and to make it look different would take you a long time. Also being a dancer the easiest thing would be to tie it up, I would suggest you visit a good hairdresser in your area and have an intense consultation also do not be scared to ask for some styling advise. Another suggestion would be to have a permanent thermal straightening (yuko system), visit a specialised salon for more info. As for your everyday regime it is very important to use the right products look at the Lazartigue range for frizzy hair its great. It would give your hair great results also try the Lazartigues Pre shampoo treatment with shea butter works magic!!
