Aubree asks:
Around mid October I decided to do something with my hair and got some crochet havana twists done. After a while, maybe the end of December, I took them down and deep conditioned my hair. After a day, I went and got box braids done. I still have the box braids now and I will be taking them down this month. However, my birthday is approaching and I do not want to wear my natural hair because I am embarrassed of the length. Would it be safe to get a sew in or would it break my hair off for not giving it a break?

Hi Aubree

Without seeing your hair I canít tell the condition or strength, but what I will say is that itís more of a tension or traction issue I would say to be concerned about, i.e. wearing the hair to tightly braided apply pressure around the hairline etc. so just be mindful of that. As you wonít have used heat I think it will be safe to have a weft sewn in just take care of your scalp. ...More >

Good luck





Lisa Hodkinson asks:
My 5 year old daughter has the more beautiful red curly hair. She had been asking to have her hair cut for a while and for some reason I decided to give her a trim myself. As should have been predicted, I took off way more than I planned to and ended up giving her a bob. I fear that I have ruined her hair. Her hair is still showing some bouncy curls around her face, but the back is worryingly straight now. What I can do and I have chopped her curls away for good?!

Oh Lisa

Been there and done that! You havenít ruined her hair if its going to be curly it will grow back curly, quite often a big hair cut can mean that they hair is heavier rather than layered so makes the curl drop, or if the curl is a soft one its just been cut at a point that its not long enough to reform. You can do a number of things, when you shampoo your hair use a curl activating leave in conditioner they normally contain magnesium and are available online and from professional salons, always comb it through with a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute and then gently scrunch your hair in your hand as its drying. If you normally leave it to dry naturally or use a dryer and diffuse on slow speed medium heat and just let your hair sit in the diffuser until itís dry donít move it around.
Hair has memory and it remembers its shape when wet so how you treat it during the drying process is critical to the end result. Use the same leave in conditioner or curl enhancer daily just a light spritz and donít brush your hair, use a wide tooth comb or a tangle teezer style brush and dry as above. ...More >

If you are going to be curly they will come back, but this will help, good luck







Dianne Morgan asks:
I have my hair coloured by an hairdresser it is a warm chocolate colour but I find it sparkles like copper in the sun we have tried an ash based colour to try and combat it any thing you can suggest because I am very self conscious about it thankyou

Hi Diane

Warm chocolate or any level 5 will tend to have a copper look in the sunshine, the only option you have is the use the ash based colour but instead of mixing equal parts of colour and developer try double the colour plus an inch ( up to two ) of green concentrate in the mix. Add 5 mins to the development time as well and it should work. ...More >

Good luck
