Taylor asks:
All my life Iíve had naturally, voluminous curly hair. I highlighted it a few years ago and after noticing how dry it made my hair I stopped but eventually had to cut it short because of how damaged it was. Iíve been growing it out ever since and recently Iíve noticed that my hair has been frizzy, dry, and the roots, which always had volume, have been flat while the ends are the same as they always were. Iíve been dying it at home using the Naturals collection from Clairol for a while but itís only started getting frizzy and dry the last few months. My hair is all one length and I have an oval shaped face. Is there anything I can do that wonít require me to stop dying it?

So many women are affected day to day by frizz - in fact 90% of women suffer with dry, brittle or frizzy hair as the hair is lacking in moisture. It is so important to allow moisture to get inside the hair follicles to achieve smooth, shiny and healthy hair especially when youíre colouring which can lead to damaged and broken hair. If you find that your hair is going frizzy then I suggest that you start using an intensive treatment regularly as this will help to repair damaged follicles, improve porosity, elasticity and general health and appearance. I also suggest using a regular treatment like my Hot Shots 2 Minute Miracle Repair. This helps to restore the moisture balance in your hair whilst stimulating and increasing circulation. Basically what this means is that your hair follicles can absorb more nutrients, improving the growth rate and the health so you can banish the dreaded frizz. As you colour your hair you should definitely use a shampoo and conditioner that protects the colour. My Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner would be perfect, as its gentle formula is designed especially for over-stressed coloured hair. The shampoo is formulated with UV filters to help give longer life to coloured locks, so rather than washing the colour out, you are washing much needed love and care in. Finish off with the ultra nourishing conditioner and your colour will not only be safe but will sparkle with health!





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!
