Jayne asks:
I dyed my hair a few months ago now from dark brown to red. The problem is that I donít know if it is from this that when I wash or brush my hair it falls out in handfuls or strands . My hair is thinning badly now at the age of 31 years. I asked a hairdresser but they never told me anything that can help. If I need to would it be best to cut shorter? Please can you tell me what is causing this? It is at shoulder length right now and Iím fed up with it falling out.

Hi Jayne, Try not to worry, I suggest you start checking the brush and shower as itís normal to lose around 100 hairs per day. Medication, diet and hormones can have a big impact on hair and encourage loss too. I suggest you invest in some protein shampoo and conditioner, perhaps take a vitamin supplement or specific hair version. Make sure you have plenty of oily fish in your diet and if you donít see an improvement check medication you are taking or see you GP. Good luck





Fiona asks:
My hair is dyed red and my natural colour is dark brown. I go grey extremely easy what is best colour to keep grey at bay for longer? I have been grey since start of my 20s.I was thinking black or blonde but not sure how any these colours would work with the red I currently have. I go to the hairdressers and donít colour this myself.

Hello Fiona, I suggest you start to go lighter to blend away the grey and make it look less obvious when its growing through. I would ask your hairdresser to do lots of highlights and take you to a copper blonde then gold blonde and then you can have a toner of your choice depending on what you think best suits you. I always think have a change of hairstyle, going a bit shorter helps speed up the process. Go for it and good luck!







Kayla asks:
After dealing with hard water for almost a year, my hair has become mushy/gummy, brittle and it cannot retain moisture which has caused severe breakage. Iíve now had a water softening system for 3 months, yet the condition of my hair has not snapped back. Iíve gotten salon protein treatments, clarifying treatments ... everything! Iím simply not seeing any improvement. I used to have very low maintenance, normal porosity hair. Now itís high porosity and is so difficult to style and moisturize. Are my curls damaged forever? How do I fix this? Does it sound like I need more protein, or moisture?

Hello Kayla, Please stop using protein shampoo and clarifying treatments immediately. The clarifying is good to remove all residue and mineral build up from the hard water and protein shampoo is good for limp fragile hair but curly brittle hair needs a moisture overload. I suggest you buy some moisture shampoo and conditioner make sure you comb the conditioner through and leave for 5 minutes before rinsing. Invest in the best moisture treatment mask you can, apply and cover with a shower cap and heat with a hairdryer if you can for 15 mins before combing through, rinsing and applying conditioner. Do the treatment everytime you shampoo your hair for a month, then weekly. I also suggest you apply some argan oil and comb through after the hair care regime and leave the hair to dry, it will be a couple of weeks and your hair will be back to normal. Good luck
