Kelly asks:
I have a super big problem. The past 3 years or so I have been using box highlights on my hair. I never had a problem with box highlights until about a year ago. My hair has become very thin and looks as if someone has taken scissors to my hair and chopped pieces off everywhere. Especially the highlighted pieces, I notice this usually a few weeks after highlighting. I also have thin hair naturally. I have also been using a chi straightener, it makes my hair look better, and I have to wash and blow dry my hair everyday. If I donít wash it, becomes VERY GREASY and if I donít blow dry itís horrible. So I donít know if this damage is from the highlights or the straightener? Iíve always had long, blonde hair so Iím afraid to cut off my hair or dye it back to my natural colour. Any suggestions?

Hi Kelly - the Chi Iron is fine, but not on over damaged hair, you need to go and see a professional about your cut and colour ........and about the BOX!! There is no magic in it, the magic comes from someone who knows what they are doing, go and see someone that works outside the BOX!

Lacey asks:
Since pregnancy, I have had a lot of little "new" hair growing in at the top of my head, and a lot of frizzy flyaways, is there something I can do to fix this?

Unfortunately there is little you can do for this problem, HOWEVER, this is very common and a good sign of health after pregnancy. New hair is usually found on hair lines or crowns and a soft wax or serum can help to disguise unruly flyaway strands.

Tracy asks:
My hair is just below my shoulders and straight with a few layers at the bottom, it appears to be in very good condition and is extremely shiny (it is coloured as I am going grey). In the last six months I have had real problems with what looks like a top layer of frizz on top of my head. My hairdresser said its new hair but as it is growing it just seems to frizz, I say frizz but Iím not sure if itís flyaway, it doesnít appear to have a different texture to the rest of my hair so I donít think it is because of the grey. I have spent a fortune on so many products and the only thing that calms this down and makes it look better is Trevor Sorbieís products for straight hair however there is something in it that really irritates my scalp and I end up with terrible dandruff and itchy scalp when I use it. I have tried so many other products for frizzy hair or for straight hair (including John Frieda Frizz ease) but it seems that everything irritates my scalp. The only thing that stops my scalp being like this is Daniel Fieldís scalp therapy shampoo, it gives me a lovely clean and dry free scalp but makes my hair look worse, which means I am constantly adding serum or other similar products to the top of my hair to stop this frizz (which seem to sink in after an hour and the frizz comes back) I am getting so fed up about this and can not afford to keep buying so many expensive products especially when they donít do what they say they will do and as I say if it wasnít for the scalp problem I would happily stick with Trevor Sorbie products for better looking hair. Please advise me what I can do as I have never had a problem with my hair before this and it is really getting me down. By the way I do use straighteners but only used to use them on the very ends of my hair for a few seconds but now I have to use them right from the scalp which is worrying me that I may end up actually damaging the shorter frizzy hair at the top.

It sounds like you need a complete overhaul of your hair-care routine! Begin by using a good, nourishing hair care regime, such as Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo-relax (£52.25 for the set). These products have been designed specifically for dry, sensitised hair and though relatively expensive, are fairly concentrated so you only need to use small amounts; dispensing about the size of a walnut in the palm of your hand each time. Next, when hair is still damp, apply a serum to control any particularly frizzy hair. I would recommend Fudge Unleaded De Frizz (£8.95) this controls hair whilst smoothing and polishing. If you are worried about damaging your hair whilst styling then why not try a protective cream such as LíOreal Hot Style Iron Finish (£12.30) on the sections you straighten. Finally, to fix your style and add further control use some Fudge Skyscraper hairspray (£8.50), which will fix your finished style and banish your frizz from returning!
