Jane asks:
I have long bra strap length hair, thick with a wave mid length to ends, I dye my hair at home using semi dark brown, the last time I dyed my hair I used a semi dark brown but added a touch of darker brown to give it a bit of shine, now I need to do my roots and am unsure of what colour to use as my roots are a bit lighter, I colour through to the ends for the last 10 minutes as I have a worry of colour not being even, I had hoped to go a shade lighter more of a mid-dark brown as opposed to dark-darkest-black.

It would be very hard indeed to go a shade lighter as the tone in your hair would show as banding. The only way to go lighter is by visiting a professional salon and seeing a colour technician for advice.

Sinead asks:
I have very thick hair which I leave to dry naturally and then use straighteners, I have a side parting from left to right and it always looks limp and awful. I would love to know how to style my hair in the shape of say Samantha Janus with her side parting but donít know how, can you help with tips please.

When styling your side fringe it is important to draw volume up from the roots. Before blow drying, apply a volumising gel or spray to the hair, blow dry to the side lifting up from with a flat brush, from the root Ė this should form a natural arch. When the hair is 90% dry you can use the flat brush again to curve the ends of your sweeping fringe under, straightening irons can be used to help with this at the very tips. You can also try my Volume Detox Hot Shots Treatment to enhance the body of your hair - this will remove dulling deposits that weigh down the hair, to restore balance and improve body.

NB Girl asks:
I read your "Hair Headlines: Wave of the Future" article posted online and have a couple of questions regarding the techniques you reviewed. I have an 11-year old daughter with sometimes challenging hair of a spongy, tight texture. Her edges are very thin (runs in the family) but the rest of her hair is thick and hard to manage more often than not. I have kept up a regime of washing, blow-drying, and pressing her hair for the past few years - and also keep it braided for 1-2 weeks at a time on occasion. Lately Iíve noticed that her hair has severely broken off in the back and continues to have split ends in that section despite trimming her ends. When looking at her pictures over the past couple of years, I also realize that her hair is much shorter overall and not just in the back. My concern is that the routine blow-drying and pressing have damaged her hair and led to the breaking. Thus, here are my questions:

Does a situation such as this ever warrant relaxing someoneís hair?

If done correctly, is it safe to get my daughterís hair relaxed using the ammonium thioglycolate or guanidine hydroxide? Where can I find such products?

Lastly, is the thermal ionic/bio ionic system safe for my daughterís hair? Iím interested in learning more about it, even for myself - where can I find additional information on this new technique?

I suggest getting a consultation at a salon and getting the salon to do all the necessary precautionary test

Strand test
etc ...More >

I do not suggest this system for your daughters hair it can make the hair much more delicate than it already is.
