Ausa asks:
Question: I have 2 questions.
1) I have been trying to grow my hari long for the past 15 years, but as it is very brittle, it breaks by the time it reaches shoulder lenght. It is naturally a bit curly, but very fine. Should I use shampoo for dry, long or frizzy hair?
2) My home is damp, wherefore I am using a dehumidifier. It works wonders; in fact, it is drying out my hair aswell! I am trying not to use it while at home, but come winter, and I will need to keep it on 24 hours/day. Is there anyway I can protect my hair? I am treating it with olive-oil and rosemary once/week (hair is still dry to the point that it will not absorb the leave-in conditioner that previously was good!) Would the hair be protected by keeping it damp in a shower cap while home with the dehumidifier? Anything else I could use to prevent my already brittle hair to completely break?

Richard says, wow you are certainly dedicated! Have you ever considered hair extensions? They would be ideal for your needs as you can have them as long as you like. To be honest, all hair has a maximum growth rate and I would say that yours has reached it so there isnt a quick fix solution to make it grow.
If your hair is brittle, then you should really be using a deep moisturizing shampoo range.

In regards to the humidifying question - eek! Yep, your hair is loosing all its moisture so I would suggest keeping a bottle of leave-in spritz conditioner near by to replace the lost moisture. Definitely treat your hair with a deep conditioning treatment twice a week too.

Hey, I have long blonde, quite thin hair and im bored with it.
I wanted to get a loose perm, a wavy effect, im a surfer and though it would go with my image. can you get wavy perms?

Hi Kate,
Yes! you can have wavy perms, The stylsit would use a larger perm rod. May I also suggest that you ask for an acid wave, these are gentler on the hair and as a surfer it will help to keep your hair in better condition.

Sarah asks:
I have red hair, but i really want to dye it blonde. If i go to walmart and buy blonde hair dye, do u think it would change my hair color to orange?

Over the counter hair dyes or bleaches have a very low percentage of peroxide. the consequences of this is that they do not lift as well as professional products, I would therefore advise that you go to a salon. The over the counter option would tend to make your hair orangey,
