|Samantha asks: |
I have a question concerning hair bleaching. The first time my stylist bleached my hair all over I ended up with about 3-4 one inch long chemical burns on my scalp. She only ended up using 20 volume on my hair we figured we had let it sit to long. We took a break after that and shadow rooted my roots after about 6-8 months. I decided I wanted to be bleach blonde again. So I had an appointment in February and we did my roots and my scalp just ended up flaky she used 20 volume then. I have just got my hair done again earlier this week and ended up with a few chemical burns again no bigger than a dime. This time she only used 10 volume because we were touching up my roots and cancelling out warmth. It was on not longer than 15 minutes after she finished my whole head. Does this have anything to do with my stylists technique or the products she used? Or do I just have a sensitivity to bleach?

Hi Samantha, it really does sound to me like you have a real intense sensitivity to the bleach Iím afraid! I suggest you apply to hair that is not fresh clean as that may help reduce scalp sensitivity due to natural sebum and the pores not being so open. Also application as light on the scalp as possible just pushed into the hair, remove with cool water and lowest detergent shampoo as possible, with as little agitation as possible during removal. Leave a low ph conditioner on the hair and scalp before rinsing and again rinse with cool water. Try and soothe your sensitive scalp with almond oil treatments as well as a vitamin e and zinc supplement and hopefully a combination of all of the above with help! Good luck

I have huge knots (like 2 fist size) in my hair that me and my mom cannot get out. We have tried everything and I really do not want to shave my head. Cutting wonít help as it starts about a quarter of the way down my head and thereís about 6+ inches of hair after it. Do you have any recommendations, or know anywhere I could go where someone would help me? Iíve been told that hairdressers wonít help because it could take hours. I did find a detangling service online but I donít have an extra $700 to detangle my hair.

Hi Kristian, this is a tough one as I canít see the hair but I suggest you try using a pure bristle brush and spend as much time every day as you can detangling the surface of the hair, so keep brushing over the surface of the knots. A pure bristle brush will do less damage than a plastic one or a comb. It may take weeks of commitment but you will start to get through it gently and then hopefully have as little hair loss as possible. Then you can shampoo and condition and try using a detangling brush very gently. Iím afraid there is no quick fix. Good luck.
|Yusuf asks: |
I am seventeen years of age. I have very dry, curly hair that I wish to straighten. I was wondering what the best method to do this would be.

Hi Yusuf, I would use one of the amazing Brazilian/Keratin smoothing systems, go to a couple of salons to find the best price and have a patch test and strand test to make sure your hair is suitable. I also suggest you use very moisturising shampoo and conditioner and smoothing serum to help improve the condition and soften your hair. Good luck
