Lisa asks:
I am a 24 year old female. I have highlighted hair and I use GHDs regularly. I always use heat protection spray (Sebastian trilliant) and treat my hair regularly with Lee Stafford conditioners. My hairdresser says my hair is in really good condition but I have really short bits on my hairline (where men recede). These are about 1 inch long and the rest of my hair is past my shoulders! My hairdresser thinks its new hair but I think thereís too much for it to be baby hair. Just wondering what this could be?

It sounds to me like this is breakage from a combination of the colour you have and the use of GHDs. This is very common and nothing to be concerned about, and to be honest you are doing everything you can to help the situation. The only advice I can give is to try not to apply so much heat to the hair but I appreciate this is not always easy.

Carol asks:
I am planning on dying my hair very temporarily just to try it out with a medium purple (my natural hair colour is on the line between ginger and dark blonde with light ends) and not bleaching, although I am aware of the fact that it wonít come out as good, thatís okay, what my question really is, is if I use a temporary dye on my unbleached hair, will it FOR SURE wash out over time? Will my hair go back to being 100% normal with no vestiges of the colour? I really want to make sure because I would really like to go back to my original colour once the purple fades and will the dye itself damage my hair at all?

Sure within time it will fade out and no it shouldnít damage your hair

Stephanie asks:
My daughter is mixed with white and black her hair is naturally curly and has the same texture as a full white person soft and easy to manage. In 2008 I took her to a salon to get a straightener put on her hair, well the stylist used a relaxer for a black personís type of hair. Her hair length was about bra strap level she decided to get it cut to her shoulders. Well its 2012 and her hair has not grown at all, she gets the ends trimmed regularly and has been using clip in extensions for the past year. She only uses salon hair products, we have tried biotin vitamins and different hair products, what else can we do, her hair is still thick and soft, just short!

This is a tough one really as it sounds like your doing everything right. It seems to me that the relaxer used in 2008 has damaged the hair to the point that the hair will only get to a certain length and then break. Another alternative to consider is a Keratin treatment which a lot of salons now offer. This entails keratin being put into the hair and the benefits are excellent shine and far more manageable hair. Also a by product of this treatment is that it smoothes and straightens the hair but itís important to say itís not a straightening treatment, but it is a kinder way to treat the hair.
