|Matthew asks: |
My hair is VERY VERY curly due to my mixed heritage (English & Jamaican) it is not afro hair, just very curly. I used to have it relaxed frequently but eventually had to shave all my hair off as it
was breaking and very damaged due to the chemicals. I then tried a hot straightening treatment as well as a cold straightening treatment. Neither of which were very good. I have recently been recommended a Japanese straightening method, as it costs about £250 I wanted to get an established pros advice before I spent so much on my fairly short hair. I have GHDs but due to my busy lifestyle I just do not have the time to use irons every day, on top of the time it takes whenever I am in a club or playing sport my hair goes back to its natural frizzy/curly state due to the heat so I really need a permanent option! Please offer me any advice/recommendations on what I can/should do.

I think you have stressed your hair out and it is in shock. I think it really needs a good rest, time to recover and grow. Instead of thinking of having straight hair, why do you not consider wavy short hair. There are many products available now that you can apply to your hair to achieve a deep smooth wave which will stay in place until you wash the product out. You could use a texturising cream, this will just loosen up the curls but not make them straight. When your hair becomes moist it will not revert to the tight curls. You could then add some Shock wave hair control gel or cream to keep your style in place. Try it, you might be surprised at the result.

My normal hair colour is dark brown. I have dyed it several times. Often with mahogany colours. Now my hair colour is a mix between mahogany and dark brown. The thing is, my eye brows are very dark (almost black) and I was thinking of dying my hair dark brown (maybe almost black, or blue black?) Do you think that is a good idea?
|Answered By: |
Well if your eye brows are dark then it should suit you. Maybe try a very dark brown first and take it in stages.

I have really fine straight hair which I am bored with I try curling it with tongs irons everything and it never holds I am thinking about getting some sort of perm I really want to achieve loose waves I am not sure whether this can be achieved through perms?
|Answered By: |
I do not think you would achieve the result that you want with the perm. Try using a volumising lotion before you dry your hair like Hair Volume Lotion by J F Lazartigue After drying try curling your hair with the straighteners, take approximately an square inch of hair, clip it with the irons and twist 180 degrees then gently slide the irons down slowly so you will create a strong curl, do not worry if its a bit to curly to start with as it would soften through the day. Alternatively after you done this you can pin your hair with Velcro rollers upwards, until its cool and then gently take them out, do not worry if your hair, again, is too curly as it would become softer, sometimes the lasting of curls in your hair could depend of the length and hair cut of it, try a few layers.
