Kristine asks:
I have quite long hair, with very rough and dry mid-lengths and ends. It is also thinning quite badly. I donít blow-dry my hair or use any heated appliances, and I donít dye it. It really bothers me and I donít know what to do anymore- plus Iím very nervous about my hair falling out!

It sounds like your hair is naturally very dry, and has suffered some form of damage to the cuticle, which is leaving it with that Ďroughí appearance. Unfortunately, once the cuticle becomes damaged it is more prone to further damage and weakening and so it is likely that not using the right products regularly has exacerbated the problem. ...More >

First of all I would suggest a good trim Ė your hairstylist will be able to see how much of the ends is beyond repair and in need of cutting. If you can afford to, I would also consider trying a professional treatment that is designed to smooth, condition and inject shine into dry damaged locks. Next, I would look at the products you are using and how often you are using them. Invest in a shampoo, conditioner, and hydrating leave-on treatment or serum that are designed for dry and damaged locks. I would also suggest buying a deep conditioning treatment, and using once or twice a week, until you see an improvement in the quality of your hair. Avoid shampooing daily, as the natural oils within your scalp will help to condition your hair.

The thinning you are experiencing is most likely to be the weak damaged hairs breaking away Ė rather than hair loss from the follicle Ė so this should improve once you start to improve the overall condition of your hair. If you donít see an improvement, or are concerned that the hair is falling out at the scalp, then speak to your GP who can refer you to see a trichologist. At Westrow. we refer our clients with thinning hair problems to the Northern Hair Loss Clinic, as they are experts in that arena and able to advise in the areas we canít help with. Finally, itís great that you have been avoiding damaging your hair further with colour or using heated appliances, however once you see an improvement in your hairís condition, there is no reason to avoid these entirely. Just be sure to use heat-protective products before using any heated appliances, and professional pre-colour conditioning treatments, such as Olaplex, prior to any colour treatment.





Denisa asks:
Hello! I dyed my hair about 2 days ago with the Líoreal excellence creme in Natural Rich Auburn 5.6. Because I have medium to dark brown hair, it didnít do much other than make my hair look warmer, kinda like a bruntte cherry. I kinda like but I was hoping for a more visible change. So I was thinking of adding some rich blonde-caramel highlights to it, like a balayage, but an appoitment is so expensive where I live, its out my price range. I am currently looking online for some colouring kits,I want to know if I could still do highlights on top of the highlighted hair? Thank you!

Hi Densina, Why donít you ask around local salons to see if you can be a colour model for a trainee stylist, that way you can have a super highlights at a reasonable price. It is too difficult to try and highlight or create a balayage effect on your own hair. Good luck







Carina asks:
Iím asking for a male friend who canít find a way to cut his hair. He has naturally thick curly hair and likes to wear it longer. His hairdresser advises using gel to style it, which he doesnít like. Where would be the best hair place for him to go in order to get some advice on a cut that will suit him and some alternative products?

It sounds like your friendís current stylist may be stuck in a styling rut, or may not be totally skilled or confident in cutting and styling menís hair. These days, most barbershops and hair salons are far more forward-thinking than they used to be when it comes to menís cuts, and most good salons will have a menís expert that specialises in cutting and styling menís hair and who has a more modern understanding of products, so it shouldnít be too difficult to find a stylist that can give your friend a thorough consultation and help him to find a cut and style that suits him. Do some research and find out whether there are any male cutting specialists in your area and book a consultation. Tell your friend to look for menís styles on Pinterest that he likes, so that he can show his stylist the kind of look he would like to try, but be realistic and stick to looks that have thickness and curl to them, that would be achievable in his own hair.
