Ruth asks:
Hi - I am looking for expert advice on what cut and colour I should have. The reason I am here is because Iíve asked a lot of hairdressers in real life and they tell íitís personal preferenceí. I am terrible at knowing what suits me so I really need help! I have an oval/pear face with big cheekbones but also a wide lower jaw and large chin. Iím looking for something that highlights the cheekbones but doesnít make my wide jaw look bigger. My hair is also very very thin. I am pale skinned with brown eyes. My natural colour is light ash brown/darkest ash blonde, I have brown eyes but my eyebrows are almost black. What colour should I go? I love dark hair but think it might be too much for my colouring?? Help!!

Hi Ruth, Firstly I would have some blonde highlights a cool blonde, this way the will add dimension to you hair, make you natural colour appear darker which in turn will compliment your brows, skin tone and eye colour. If the highlights are bleach they will also help the hair feel thicker and fuller. ...More >

Secondly the cut, having the sides of your hair shorter and a side fringe will show off your cheek bones and a soft layered/textured edge around jaw length or slightly longer will soften your chin.

See above, you can of course opt for longer and shorter version of the above style, but it sounds perfect for you. Good luck, have courage and go for it!





Theresa asks:
Hi, I am going through the menopause and suffer extreme scalp sweats. Is there anything I can use to help with the embarrassment of this? My hair is short but I still suffer terrible sweating.

Extreme sweating is an unfortunate side effect of many things, including the menopause. There are certain lifestyle changes you can make to try and reduce the amount of sweating Ė diet, for example, can play an important role Ė so speak to your doctor about ways to try and tackle the issue. Unfortunately hair and scalp products wonít help to solve this problem, however, there are certain products you can use to try and alleviate any side effects and to try and mask the appearance of excess sweat. ...More >

Firstly, a sweaty scalp can clog your pores and affect your hair follicles. This can prevent healthy hair growth, so using a product that removes the build-up and prevents clogging is essential to maintaining scalp health, hair growth and length. Sweat can also dry out your scalp, which can also have a negative effect on hair growth. A gentle clarifying shampoo, used every couple of washes, or an exfoliating shampoo, used once a week, will help to remove build-up caused by over-sweating, that can lead to itchy flaky scalp and that can inhibit healthy hair growth. If your scalp sweats all the time, youíre probably tempted to wash it daily, so that it feels and looks clean, but bear in mind that over-washing your hair can over-stimulate oil production, which will mean further build up. Try to avoid daily hair washing if you can and instead use a good dry shampoo, to soak up excess oil and sweat and add volume in between washes. Dry shampoo is designed to absorb excess moisture away from your hair and scalp, leaving the hair looking clean. Apply it directly to your roots and rub it in.

Aside from leading to blocked follicles and a flaky scalp, sweat can also dry out your hair and scalp. Finding a hydrating shampoo that will protect your strands and keep your hair healthy is a great way to fight against this. A deep-conditioning treatment will also help to replace lost moisture, as will a leave-in conditioner. The leave-in conditioner will have the added benefit of acting like a barrier, between the sweat and your hair, preventing over-drying.

Finally, the natural salts in sweat can cause your hair to lose its colour quickly, so if you colour your hair, you may need extra protection from colour fade. A colour preserving shampoo, conditioner and spray will do the trick.







Ray asks:
I have had bleached my hair before and a quarter of my hair snapped off. Can i still put bleach on via the hairdressers?

I think you should have a consultation with the hairdressers as Iím sure that perhaps your hair snapped because of timings and application. Good luck
