Becki asks:
I have thick hair and I straighten it but it always looks so flat is there any techniques I could use or tell me the best product to use.

Constantly straightening your hair will thin it over time which isnít a good thing. There is nothing wrong with having thick hair, you just need to know how to manage and maintain it in order to get the best results. I recommend using a specific shampoo and conditioner for thicker hair in order to tame and also use a treatment such a my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment which helps put the love back into battered hair which is styled a lot. Keep the volume and thickness to a certain extent by blow-drying your hair in layers after washing and use a paddle brush. Afterwards, use your straighteners to go over the ends to get a sleek, straight finish. Always use heat protection spray to stop your ends from breaking and finish with a shine spray for a glossy, gorgeous look!

Laura asks:
For about 2 years Iíve been having my hair bleached blonde (by a professional hairdresser) but Iím fed up of it now. Itís in a bad condition (dry and brittle) and Iíd prefer a more natural colour. Iím aware that the bleach cannot be removed to get my natural colour back, but I read somewhere that it can be dyed red followed by a colour to closely match your natural shade? Iím unsure whether this would be a wise route to take, because I donít want it to turn out a big mess. Iíve also considered the option of growing out my bleached hair, whilst dying the roots a light blonde to avoid too much contrast between my natural mousy-brown colour and the platinum blonde. Would you recommend either of these methods? Preferably, I would like to avoid anything that would require professional assistance as it can be very expensive.

Be particularly careful when changing the colour of your hair at home. You must remember to put the protein back in to keep hair lustrous and beautiful as colouring can strip it of goodness. To go back to brunette from bleach blonde is something best done in two stages. In order to go back to brunette you firstly need to dye your hair red as if you simply try and dye your hair from bleach blonde to brunette it will go green! Once your hair is red you can then apply a medium brown colour on top of this, I would suggest starting with a lighter brown colour at first as it is easy to go a shade darker or two than waiting for far too dark brown hair to fade. If you havenít dyed your hair before I would really recommend going to a hairdressers and having it done properly as it is easy for things to go wrong when youíre dying your hair for the first time. Once youíre back to brunette I would recommend using my Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner which act as deeply intensive moisturizers, to refresh and revitalize coloured hair. The luxuriously thick formulas will help to repair the damage and drying effects that colouring hair can causeÖ..keeping colour vibrant and hair in fantastic condition. Colour specific products are an absolute must for putting the moisture back in after hair has been left battered and bruised by different colour processes. In between visits to the salon, disguise root re-growth with either of my TWO shades of new Dry Shampoo Ė Iíve brought out a mid-brown and dark!

Molly asks:
Iím thinking of getting my hair permed for the first time, but want to know what types there are, and if itís worth me going for one at all. Iíve got medium length, thick but quite fine, un-dyed hair, which is in really good condition (I hardly ever use heat styling/styling products and condition it regularly). But it basically has no style at all, no layers, nothing. Iíve curled (heat and roller) my hair in the past, and it holds shape brilliantly, but I never have the amount of time it takes to style regularly. Iím hoping that a perm would be "self-maintaining" or close enough. Is there a type of perm which gives loose curls (not 80ís corkscrews), wonít do too much damage, and will help? And do I even have the right type of hair? Thank you!

Going for big change is always an exciting time. As a client with no colour or perm your hair is a perfect blank canvass to work on. To get the look you want the consultation is the most important part of the whole process. Consultations are usually free in most salons so take advantage if you have a regular stylist book to speak to them and also visit new salons sometimes a different opinion on your hair and new look could be what you need. > Take plenty of pictures with you as help to explain what you want to achieve. There are alternatives to the 80ís corkscrew and your stylist will explain what these are. A good tip is to ask for your hair to be cut first this is great for the condition of the hair and can also encourage any natural movement in the hair. Hope the advice can be of help in achieving your new look good luck
