Seema asks:
I have done smoothing on my hair last week but i am not happy with the results. I would like to know if the heat pressing should be done after applying the neutralizer or before in the smoothing process? Please help me to answer this question.

Hello Seema, All systems are different but usually the smoothing happens with the first chemicals, then the hair is rinsed and neutralized. The hair is then blow dried and heat used to smooth again and the hair must then not be wet for 48 hours to allow the cuticle to harden. This isnít the same for all systems but the ones I am most familiar with, I hope it helps.





Debbie asks:
Hi - I have highlighted hair but every time despite saying I want cool lights after a while they always go warm and I hate it - would I be better off just having lowlights and forget the blonde, as too blonde does wash me out?

Hi Debbie, Have you tried having a toner applied in between salon visits or controlling the unwanted warm tones with colour deposit conditioners? I really think this maybe the solution. Also make sure you are using colour safe shampoo and conditioner as this will help prevent fade of the cooler tones.







Edwina asks:
I was hoping i could get some help and/or advice. Having used Devacurl, I noticed my hair was falling out more then usual, so I stopped using it. (lets just say my hair had never felt softer, bouncy, and curlier, not to mention frizz free than ever before!! I was heart broken). I purchased Matrix total results curl and noticed the first time I used it my hair did not fall out as much but whilst washing out the conditioner my hair felt like mush, it was weird! but once dry felt dry and rough (like someone who has over bleached their hair, but I have not).
I then tried the VERB volume line today and again while washing out the conditioner, it felt mushy but then dry and tangly once it was washed out. When it was still wet I pulled on a section of my hair and noticed that the 6-8 strands snapped easily and felt and looked like mush. I freaked out and went to the salon and they gave me k pak joico colour therapy shampoo and conditioner explaining whether it is moisture overload or protein overload this will balance it out.
If I continue using this product for a long time do I have to worry about protein or moisture overload? Or is it a balance between protein and moisture? I just want to be able to stick to one product for years. I also noticed that using VERB volume today my hair fell out more then usual like it did with devacurl, so Iím coming to the conclusion that CG products arenít for me. I am terrible with ingredient lists and not sure what to think!

Hello Edwina, I suggest you use either Joico or Redken products. When the hair is brittle and breaking it needs repair products so Kpak from Joico and Extreme from Redken.
Use the shampoo, then treatment mask for 20minutes, twice weekly to start with then once weekly. Then apply the conditioner, comb through and rinse after a few minutes. After a month your hair will have improved significantly and then you can use a more moisturising product line. I still alternate a little as hair changes with season so more moisture is needed during summer months etc. I do hope this helps
