|Sarah asks: |
So my mum dyes my hair for school and one week from school (which is today, Aug.15) she thought it would be a great idea to put a perm in my hair... so I let her try it. By the way, before this happened my hair was about the length of where a bra strap would go. Okay anyways, she does the perm but forgets to add some type of thing jn at the beginning and when we get done and start taking out the perm rods, there were no curls. So I waited for it to dry but when I started brushing it, HUGE clumps of hair keeps coming out. Now it just looks like I stuck my hair in acid. The only option my mum knows is to cut it to my shoulders. I really donít want to...Help

Wow Sarah, so if I was you I would immediately use a clarifying shampoo leaving on for 5 minutes before rinsing and repeating. This will remove chemical that may still be in your hair. Have a good trim and invest in some professional shampoo and conditioner thatís for chemically damaged hair. Leave the conditioner on for 5 minutes and comb through gently before rinsing. If you can get a treatment mask also for chemically damaged hair, you use this after shampooing but before conditioning there is no need to comb through as masks work internally to repair the hair. Be gentle with your hair and if you use heat to style make sure the tool has a temperature control and work around 150 c if possible to prevent heat damage. Have regular trims and Iím sure in a couple of months you will be happy with your hair again.

Hi, I am frustrated with my hair right now. I have a long face and prominent chin. I would like to ask for a hairstyle that would suit me, is there any specific haircuts that you can suggest? I want something that is of medium cut and not too short.

Hi Cha, What you want is something below your chin but above your shoulders, with width. So a bob with layers and a side swept fringe, as that way your face shape gets made to look more oval than long, adding volume at the sides is essential to complete the look. Use mousse and try and blow dry in the volume before perhaps using a wand to create movement.

Hello, I am 16 and I started straightening my curly hair when I was about 13. I stopped 2 months ago because my hair is completely heat damaged. My hair fell out because of heat damage so I had to cut it. Now itís just below my collarbone but it looks horrendous and I have now idea what to do with it. Could you please give me a few styling tips?
|Answered By: |
Hi Gabi, So Iím just wondering if you are wanting tips on how to wear your hair curly or straight? I will offer general tips that should help with both. Make sure you are using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, these will keep your hair hydrated and help reduce frizz. Use a moisture mask treatment weekly leaving on for 20 minutes before rinsing using conditioner and combing through before rinsing.
An argan style oil is a great product to use sparingly when wet and dry, donít apply close to the roots and always comb through to evenly distribute before blow drying and styling.
Leave to dry naturally or dry with a diffuser for a wavy look and if you want to wear your hair straight blowdry with a pure bristle paddle brush in sections on medium heat and medium speed with the nozzle pointed down towards the ends of your hair, this will help make sure the cuticle lays flat. You can straighten your hair but please do use irons with temperature control I think a temperature of 180 c will be hot enough, section the hair before ironing and only iron each section once or twice. A healthy hair care regime not only helps hair recover but also helps reduced damage that can be caused using heat.
Hope this helps.
