Dorothy asks:
Iíve been contemplating getting a nape undercut for a while but I have been advised against it. I have thick, black, frizzy hair with loose curls (not coily). I would say that I range from a 3c-3a. I think that the nape undercut would lighten the volume and help with the heat in the summer. My only concern is how it will look whilst it is growing out. Do you have any tips? Also can you confirm that this style would help with the volume and help keep me cooler during the hotter months?

The undercut would definitely make you cooler through the summer months. The back of the head is always the hottest and I know myself when I wear my hair curly I just want to tie it up to avoid overheating. This is also a great way to reduce the volume of your hair too, however you have to take into account that you would lose the longest bit of your length, as this comes from the nape. Your new length would be your longest layer from the crown area. If you are not daring enough to get it shaved, you could consider booking into a salon to have it braided at the back of your nape, so you could see what the reduced volume would look like. I think this would be the best option before going for it! Good luck.

Dear Felicia, Straightening your hair once a week on complete dry hair will not cause excess damage. Over use like daily is when extreme damage occurs. Use Argon oil or a heat protecting spray to protect the hair before you iron . Section the hair as best you can so that you minimize the amount of times you run the iron over your hair .This will help get a straighter style.

Lynnsey asks:
I have extremely damaged, short, and very curly hair. I have been wearing tape in hair extensions for three years and I would never go anywhere without them. However, being that my hair is very curly and thin and my extensions are thick and wavy, my hair looks horrible whenever I go outside on a hot and humid day because my real hair starts curling and my extensions remain straight. This causes me to have to straighten my hair multiple times a day and worry about how it looks 24/7. I have tried numerous products but nothing seems to stop my curls from returning whenever I step outside. Do you have any products or treatments you would recommend to keep my hair straight in the humidity? thank you!

Honesty answer as I have a very similar problem is no! I can only suggest one of the smoothing blowdry systems and a dedicated haircare regime which I do myself and still have issues. Wavy extensions?
