I permed my thick, naturally wavy/straight hair about 5 months ago. I then lightened my ends (ombre) about 3 months ago, which fried my ends (because I suspect, of excessive heat). About a month ago I dyed my hair all one colour (very dark brown, my natural colour) and my ends are still very frizzy and damaged. I cut my hair about 3 weeks ago my perm is still in tact from the top of my ears to about ten cm above the ends of my hair. I feel in a rut with my unhealthy hair and am not sure what to do from here. I do not have a stylist that I normally go to. What do you suggest I do?

I receive hundreds of questions like yours, and always recommend that you visit a good top salon someone who specialises in Chemical work, I could think of many different ways to overcome your dilemma, on what you wrote, it sounds that you have long hair? If that is true, may I suggest you do not use any colours on your hair for at least 4 to 6 Months, during that time use the best Shampoos and conditioners you can buy, for example LíOreal do several hair repair treatments, Phillip Kingsley Hair scientists treatments have wonderful products to repair your hair, available on line here. These treatments work better in repairing your hair, give it the shine back and the bounce, dress your hair up in soft styles during the growing out period. Maybe after your hair is in good condition go to a good salon and ask them to apply a few very fine high and low highlights to break up the harshness of very dark hair. You could also take drastic actions and have your hair cut into a much shorter style, that of course would speed up the healing process of your hair. To find a good stylist, is easy, basically find someone whose hair you like. when you go shopping or on the street, tell them how much you like their hair and compliment them, then ask them who does there hair, recommendations like this usually work out well, then you have seen the work, all you need to do ask people whose hair you admire. Remember good conditioned hair is the basis for good colours and perms. as you say your hair is partly straight partly wavy, maybe you should consider changing your styles to suite the type of hair you have, there are many great hairstyles which look great with part waves and part straight, I do hope this advice will help you to understand my points I make and will help you to make a decision.

My advice would be to use Moroccan oil which is amazing, your hair will absorb the product and immediately enhance manageability shine and long term condition without leaving residue. Also blow dry your hair in the opposite direction to the way the hair wants to go. I would also highly recommend Kerastraight which is really conditioning and is a non-chemical product, it is great for dull dry hair, damaged hair, curly and wavy, frizzy hair. I think that you would really benefit from this and make your hair much more manageable.

I have noticed just lately every time I wash my hair it has started to come out in small handfuls in my hands last time this happened I changed my shampoo to Head and Shoulders sensitive and it helped I used it for years. I have also coloured my hair and carried on using the same shampoo. I recently changed my shampoo and although the new one was nice and made my hair shiny and smooth I started loosing bits of hair again so I went back to my old one, my head itches because its dry is there anything I can use to make it look nice without spending a fortune to make it look healthier, I donít use product or heat on it.

This sounds to me as if you have some sort of allergy to an ingredient in certain shampoos. My advice is invested in a good scalp shampoo like the Phillip Kingsley No Scent Shampoo for sensitive scalps. Then to protect your colour and give your hair a fabulous shine use the Loreal Professional Vitamino colour conditioner, this is not to be applied to the scalp but only the mid lengths and ends so you are tailoring your products for not only your sensitive scalp but also the condition and shine on your hair.
