Jessica asks:
I have always had light blonde highlights and over the past few months have also had a base break so my roots are lighter. My hair is naturally curly and just below my shoulders. The last time I got my hair done she cut and coloured it. My stylist put some shorter layers in it as that is what I requested. She styled it straight and then used a thinning shear all over. I donít have really thick hair at all and was upset she used it. Now it feels a lot thinner and I feel like my curl is not as defined as it was. How long does it take for your hair to recover after a stylist uses the thinning shears? Does it damage your hair? How can I fix the damage? I should have asked her why she was doing that but I assumed she knew what she was doing. She knows I have curly hair and usually I wear it curly... So Iím not sure why she did that!

There is good and bad in every profession and I think you have just experienced the later. NOT TO WORRY. I would not EVER recommend using thinners for someone who styles their hair curly. This definitely reduces the curl result and definition. The stylist probably thinned the ends to remove the cutting lines that were visible after having your layered when dried straight. ...More >

I would recommend having a weave cut. By this I actually mean sections of your hair been taken as if to colour it when having weave highlights. Then each of the "weave" pieces in each section are cut at different lengths with scissors. This will thicken your thinned ends that have been put in previously.

It is really difficult and I can understand your frustration but when you have long curly hair the last think you want is normal layers introducing or your ends thinned.

The weave cut will help remedy some of your problem depending how far up your hair they went while thinning.

Sadiya asks:
My hair is black and long up to my back. I have a round face which way do you think my fringe would suit, my hair is curly I want to make it straight without using a straightener but how?

Take a look at What is my face shape? it will help you but at the end of the day it is all down to your own personal preference. If you try your fringe in a couple of directions over a week, see which one you get the most compliments for. With regards to getting your curly fringe to be straight, the quickest way is going to be with straighteners, it is not a large area and should not require extensive heat to keep it straight every two or three days. Use a good quality hair straightener protector on your fringe and use a mild temperature so as to keep your hair healthy.

Shane (Miss) asks:
I am a white female and have immensely curly, frizzy hair, I am 36 and I can honestly say it has affected my life I have tried the Brazilian Keratin treatment (at HOB in Loughton)) which made it easier for me to style straight although only once or twice and my hair fought desperately against being straight and looked rubbish by the following morning. Can you suggest anything? I have never had my hair chemically straightened before and wonder if this is the way I should go? I have heard about the IHR - is this the best one?

I think the first port of call is to book a consultation with a reputable hairdresser to discuss your options. There are some brilliant professional formula products that can help - we really like Sebastianís potion 9 - a leave in rich moisturiser.

Before booking a chemical process it is of paramount importance to establish the condition of the hair and whether you have colour on at the moment. The process we use in our salons is Wellaís Wella strate.
