E Jones asks:
I have naturally blonde red hair which is unusually fine and not very thick. It is poker straight and sits flat even after blow drying with volume boosters and using straighteners at the roots to provide lift - also wind moisture etc totally flattens it out again. I use to have a great hair stylist who managed to cut a shape into my hair which meant it didnít flatten within two hours (it lasted all day even in poor weather) and still held its shape when I went for my next eight week cut - however this stylist left the salon and they wonít tell me where she went! I have tried to explain to at least six different stylists at various country wide salons who charge a lot for a cut (which I am happy to pay if I get a good cut) that my hair needs shape cutting in - what term should I use. My old stylist use to "thin" my hair which gave more ummph - when I tell them this they use those texurising scissors on the layer ends which just makes it flyaway and this doesnít give any lift or volume. Also after two weeks itís sitting flat to my head again! Could you please tell me what technique I should be asking for - as the "senior" stylists I have come across appear to have a total lack of understanding/knowledge on how to cut my type of hair - I canít believe Iím the only one! My hair use to be jaw length and cut up into the back to provide bulk and we would alter the longish fringe to the side depending on the mood and or define layers around the face - as styles changed. I am getting really desperate as I am a 43 yr old who can not afford to look like a drowned rat or disaffected teenager! Please help!!

I wish I could tell you that this was the first time I have heard this, but it could not be further from the truth.

Under no circumstances let a stylist attack your hair with texturising/thinning shears, it will make your hair FLAT and FRIZZY. ...More >

You will definitely get the best results with a soft razoring technique "internal diffusion" which gives you soft supporting volume to prolong the volume and lift you need.

In all my years this is the only technique that truly works.

Please ensure you use a very experienced stylist competent in this technique, as in the wrong hands it will result in your hair been thinner and flatter.

Good luck





Amy asks:
I donít know what to do with my hair! It is so unmanageable the only thing I can do it put it in a ponytail! I have very thick, Nordic, wavy and frizzy hair, and I have no control over it whatsoever. It just lives its own life on top of my head. I donít mind my waves, but what could I use to kind of collect the waves? Right now each strand of hair is wavy in a unique direction creating wild and frizzy hair. And I would also appreciate advice on how I could get a more straight hair for those special occasions without losing absolutely all volume after applying a flattening iron. It seems like I have to choose between frizzy hair and flat hair. I never blowdry my hair, or use any other hot tools. All I use is shampoo and hair balm and towel dry my hair, brush it and then let it dry in a ponytail in the neck. I dry it this way or else I get this lion-mane on my head, although this makes my hair look kind of weird. It is straight to the point where the hair band has been, and wavy and curly beneath. I want MORE volume above my ears, but less below them you could say. I have tried straightening my hair with a flattening iron, but this just seems to remove my waves, the frizz is still there. I have also tried various serums, but they had no effect whatsoever. Iím so tired of struggling with my hair, please give me some advice! I have slightly layered hair to just beneath my shoulders if that matters.

Itís very simple - the long awaited and soon to be here Keratin Revolution Blonde has all the same regular benefits as KR regular but with the added intensity for un-ruley hair and off course to compliment blonde coloured hair. It will soften the hair and add lustre. The beauty is, that with flat irons you will further endorse smoothness and longevity; however, without it, will facilitate ease of management and de-frizz the hair.







Clare asks:
I have very long, thick and wavy/curly hair depending on the day really. I donít blow dry or dye it and I use the occasional hair mask, it has always been very healthy.

About 7 months ago, almost over night it became very rough and impossible to pull apart resulting in these clumps of frizzy knots, it almost feels like velcro. Iíve tried everything from using products with no protein to home remedies like apple cider vinegar but it hasnít helped. Iím worried I will have to cut it all off as itís very unmanageable. Iíd appreciate any advice, thank you!

Hi Clare

This is interesting but obviously a worry to you. ...More >

Have you changed anything in you styling or shampoo conditioning routine.

For it to change almost overnight it is something to do with what you are or are not using.

This sometimes happens with a change in the water (ph or hard water) you have not moved house?

A few quick tips.

Shampoo your hair like normal but before you rinse it out take your hands into the roots at your scalp.
Close your fingers together and smooth down from roots to ends while shampoo is on hair.

Do the same with your conditioner or treatment.

If need be after rinsing and before styling apply a small amount of serum or oil and again smooth through and style as normal.

This isnít a hair problem it is a styling regime product or water change.

It can also help( donít laugh using silk pillows that wonít create static or a silk loose fitting hat or beeni)

I know sounds daft but loads of my friends with fros do exactly this)
