|Dawn asks: |
I have long hair (to my chest), with a slight wave and have been having it highlighted for the past 10 years. I am coming up to 46 years old and have noticed that my hair is becoming a little thinner and is breaking off both underneath and at the sides of my head, leaving a fluffy look. My hair is also beginning to look a bit limp. I always let my hair dry naturally and seldom use straighteners. My hair is also beginning to feel quite dry from mid length to ends. I have it trimmed every other time I have my highlights redone....6-12 weeks but it doesnít seem to be getting any longer. I used Matrix Moisture Me for a while, which was great, but then it stopped being as íeffectiveí on my hair and now I am struggling to find anything that actually makes my hair look and feel healthy. Do you have any advice you could give me, and could you please recommend a good hair care brand. Thank you so much

Hi Dawn, There are a number reasons that could be causing your hair issues, the first can be diet related make sure you are having lots of vitamin A, D 7 E and lots of Omegas. If possible take a hair supplement as I do believe they make a huge difference as itís so hard to have a well balanced diet and the hair is the last part of the body to receive nutrition. The other things to consider are making sure that your colourist isnít overlapping your colour application and asking if a protein re-constructor can be added to your formula to strengthen your hair during the colour process. I love the Joico, Redken, Nioxin and IDhair lines of professional hair care Ė I suggest you invest in a shampoo and conditioner for colour treated hair and a mask to use weekly, my favourite is called Extreme from Redken. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes before rinsing and then apply conditioner and comb through gently before rinsing. I think a combination of all of the above will really help.

About my hair. Why wonít my hair grow? I eat healthy and drink lots of water, exercise regularly. I only shower 2 times a week for only 10 minutes max and I always finish the shower with cold water. I lightly wrap my hair in a t-shirt instead of towel when I get out of shower. I sleep on a satin/silk pillow case and I sleep enough. I take vitamins everyday and I comb through my hair not brush. I never use heat tools (straightener, curling iron, blow dryer). What am I doing wrong? Please help I want long beautiful luscious thick hair. What can I do?

Hi Autumn, Well done for doing everything correctly with your hair and diet. Unfortunately hairs texture and density is generally inherited and so you canít change it, only maximise its potential and you are doing exactly that with your regime. Also hair has a growth span of between 2 and 7 years and depending on what yours is means you may not be able to grow your hair much longer. Keep on looking after your hair the best you can.

Hi, I use a lot of heat on my hair, I know itís a bad thing but I was wondering how to make it grow? Iíve been trying to grow it out now for years and it just stays the same length. Iíve tried everything from vitamins to home remedies I have seen online but nothing works. I donít know what to do anymore. Thank you

Hello Julianna, Everybodyís hair is so very individual and has very different life spans. Hair grows for between 2 and 7 years and so it maybe your hair has reached its maximum life span. If your hair is healthy and you are eating a well balanced diet and still not seen growth you have definitely reached your hairs lifespan. Thank you
