Hi Nancy.

One thing I would recommend is: When you blow dry your hair straight I would recommend using a paddle brush and not a round brush. ...More >

This way there is no wave introduced when styling.

I would also recommend using a Light hold gel when styling your hair straight and if need be introduce a small amount of serum into your gel (mix them together in your hands then apply to your hair and comb through for even coverage). This will aid with preventing humidity effecting your hair once you have styled it.

When you want your hair wavy using a mousse can sometimes make it frizzy.

Let me know how you get on

Sue asks:
Can you recommend a curling iron that will work well, but wonít do too much damage to my hair? I love my hair in curls, but the only wand Iíve found that makes lasting curls is my Jose Eber. Unfortunately, itís been frying my hair and the damage is starting to show. What should I look for in a curling iron so that I know the curls will really last, but it wonít destroy my hair?

The reason your curls are lasting is because the wand throughs out some serious heat - the hotter the wand the longer the curl will last - BUT, and it is a big BUT this will damage your hair and some of this damage will be irreversible. ...More >

I want to break this down for you; firstly to address the damage in your hair, then to prevent further damage and then look at curling wands that will produce great curls but wonít fry your hair.

1. Damage: I would recommend you use a collection of products that will improve the strength and general condition of your hair, look for products that contain wheat protein as they will contain essential amino acids to repair the structure of your hair and add much needed moisture. We use Electric Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner as they are packed with wheat protiens and jojoba & meadowfoam to hydrate, repair and reduce breakage. Use a hair masque every seven to ten days to really nourish and condition - your hair will thank you for it! (top tip - apply your hair masque after your shampooing and then once you have rinsed off the masque apply your regular conditioner to lock in all the goodness - rinse and style as normal).

2. Damage prevention: If you take one piece of advise from this reply let it be this one: USE HEAT PROTECTOR. I canít stress how important this is when using heated styling tools. We use P4 Preparation Spray and we also love Kerastase Ciment Thermique. Go for the best your budget can afford.

3. Which Wand? We use Babyliss Pro wand - the great thing about this wand is has thermal control dial - allowing you to reduce the heat to prevent damage. I would look for a wand that has heat control and experiment using a reduced heat along with a great hold hairspray combined with using the products above and I guarantee your bouncy curls will be shiny and full of health in no time!

Joan asks:
Hi, I want to know what colour hair would best suit me. I have had blonde hair my whole life, I have hazel eyes and brown eyebrows, I have a redish undertone and my veins look blue in the light. If it also helps I use the colour Classic Ivory foundation to match my skin tone. Would a light brown look good on me or maybe a lighter blonde? Any suggestions? thank you.

Itís is always a bit of a shock to go darker, especially as youíve been blonde all your life! What I tend to suggest to clients, when they visit me, is if we take the colour darker and then itís best to add a few highlights to soften the transition slightly until you get used to your new shade. From your description of your features and hair tone I think going darker would work perfect Ė I would just suggest going darker gradually so itís not too big a change all at once.
