Jayne asks:
Hello Dear Hair Expert, I have been growing my hair which is thick and dark. I have been colouring it with nice and easy 5A permanent and have never had problems before,however,it has become extremely dry and frizzy. I do not know what to do with it! I have used expensive hair masks and conditioners but to no avail.
I have been swimming in a pool once a week, but wear a swimming hat, but the water does somehow get through a bit. Do you think the chlorine is the culprit here? Is there any advice you can give me to get it back into good condition.
I am going to be a mother of the bride in August, so i am panicking a bit now. I think I will have to bite the bullet and chop it all off!
Also, any advice about how I can still enjoy my swimming, I do not really want to keep my head out of the water as I cannot swim properly like that. And advice or recommendations will be greatly appreciated, Thanking You

Hello Jayne, Firstly I am hoping that you donít comb through the colour every time you apply, if you do please stop and but a semi permanent version of the colour or keep the ends topped up and refreshed with a brunette colour conditioner? ...More >

Secondly, yes chlorine can make a big difference to the quality and condition of the hair so make sure as soon as you are out of the pool you shampoo your hair twice to remove the residue.

There are so many contributing factors to the change of texture and condition of hair so please try the above, make sure you are using the best quality moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and mask possible Ė I like Redken, Joico and Nioxin as professional brands. Make sure you comb the conditioner through before rinsing as this helps smooth the hair. Have a trim, double check your diet contains some omegas and vitamin, E & D else take a supplement. When you blowdry and style make sure you take your time always using medium heat and speed and as low a temperature as possible for hot air stylers and irons. I am also a huge fan of hair supplements so try them too if possible.
Really good luck, this will really help and enjoy the wedding x x





Barbara asks:
Hi.. I dont know if you can help, but Iíll say it.. I didnít dye my hair for 5 months, then recently bleached to get vibrant colour in, brand Splat! Berry Blast! Although I had to bleach twice, as my hair was dark in places; still applied the colour, it didnít come out as good, but better than other colours. 5 weeks later, I decided to apply crazy colour violet, it came out, but Iím not happy, it was one of those wash out dyes. I was thinking of using colour remover and try to get the bleach version back. Is it advisable to do this? If so, how soon after I apply the violet!

Hi Barbara, I would suggest you do something called a bleach bath, so a very gentle mixture of bleach, water and high detergent shampoo. Apply and leave on for around 15 minutes, then rinse and repeat if required. This should remove the remainder violet from your hair and give you a nice clean blonde again. You can then use a toner if need be. Good luck







Cassidy asks:
1. What type of haircut would you recommend for me? My hair is currently shoulder length. I am looking for something that I can part on either side of my head, and ideally still pull up into a ponytail.
2. How do I get my curls to "bounce back" on the top layer of my hair/not look stretched out?
3. My current wash and style routine is a very delicate process that usually requires my diffusing my hair, which takes a lot of time. Is there a shorter regimen that I should follow (I am a college student with little time in the morning)?
4. Are there any products within a college studentís budget that are go-toís/must-haveís for people with curly hair? Any other suggestions and/or guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance! Best, Cassidy

Hello Cassidy Letís tackle you questions one at a time:

1. What type of haircut would you recommend for me?
I think with Curly hair a bob shape, of any length works perfectly, slightly inverted is good as well. This way you can switch the parting and still tie it all back or just the top if you opt for a short version. ( see some images above) using a wand or heated rollers can help create softer curls too when you feel like a change. ...More >

2. How do I get my curls to "bounce back" on the top layer of my hair/not look stretched out?
Having long layers through the top sections so losing a bit of the old over straightened hair will really help for starters.

3. My current wash and style routine is a very delicate process that usually requires my diffusing my hair, which takes a lot of time. Is there a shorter regimen that I should follow (I am a college student with little time in the morning)?
I would suggest that you squeeze as much water out of your hair with a towel before combing through and leaving to dry naturally with product in or diffusing, donít shampoo everyday use a water spray bottle with conditioner added to spray on day old hair to revitalize your curls and dry shampoo at the roots if required.

4. Are there any products within a college studentís budget that are go-toís/must-haveís for people with curly hair?
I think as long as you are using moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, a weekly moisture mask and you comb through the conditioner or mask before rinsing. As far as styling your custard seems to work well for you so I would continue with that, but as you dry (diffuse) or leave your hair to dry naturally, put your fingers into the root area and shake it out, this will stop the product drying so hard and so flat to your head. It will aslo prevent the triangle affect that you currently experience. I really hope this helps you!
