Mary asks:
I hope you can help- my hair is very static. I have even recently stopped using conditioner hoping that would help but my hair still remains static!!

When an insulator like a plastic comb is rubbed against something like your hair tiny particles called electrons are either added to or taken away from the insulator. ...More >

The comb and the hair get charged with opposite electrons; either positive + or negative

When every strand of your hair has the same charge it feels tingly and makes your hair stands up. The hair is charged with the same electron and tries to move away from that charge.

Braniac talk over! The dryer your hair is, the more static it will be, so you need to make sure your hair is super moisturised. By stopping using conditioner you are actually probably just adding to the problem!

Try using an intensive conditioner and after styling mist your hair with my Poker Straight Dehumidifier which should sort out the static leaving hair shiny soft and manageable

Char asks:
I have wore my hair up in a ponytail for years now and my hair is starting to go much thinner at the front and it is starting to make me look like I have bald patches because of where I wear it up so tight so what should I do to get my hair to grow back thicker there? People have said to wear my hair down but I do not want to because I like it up so should I just wear it looser or something?

Always refrain from tying your hair back so harshly, (especially when wet) as this causes damage to hair follicles around the hairline. If you only feel comfortable with your hair back, try changing the way you tie it. This way you are not constantly damaging the same hairs which will lead to breakage. Another tip is using a head band as this will cause less tension to your hair. You need to put the condition back into your hair, try using Hot Shots Volume Detox (RRP 6.99) this treatment shampoo in a shot is specially formulated to encourage circulation around the hair follicle to increase uptake of the nutrients and to boost hair body, volume and texture. A side sweeping fringe will give the appearance of thicker hair and a change of parting will disguise the look of any bald patches. I would strongly recommend a restyle, as if your hair was easier to manage you may not be so tempted to tie it back this will also make your hair around the hairline stronger whist encouraging new growth. However if you insist in having your hair tied back a great new way of doing so is to create a messy knot. This is a softer style so your hair is not so severely pulled back and will be less damaging.
Take the top section of hair (half up) and fix into place with a snag free band
Take small sections of the hair underneath and loosely pin around the existing ponytail
This creates a messy pinned in pony that is edgy and glam.

Elaine Bryce asks:
I have fairly short straight hair which I have permed to give me a bit of a root lift. I have this done at home by a mobile hairdresser. However the perm never seems to last more than 6 weeks. She only takes hr to perm and blow dry my hair. As I only require a bit of a lift, she leaves the solution on for approx 10 mins. Is this sufficient time to gain the result I require.

It sounds as though there are not enough rods being put into your hair. It could be that the rods are too large. Or the lotion is not left on long enough. Lotion can be left on anything up to 20 minutes all depending on the lotion and whether you use heat or not. I find it hard to fathom that a root perm and blow-dry can all be done in 3/4 hour. Neutralizer should be left on at least 5 minutes after being rinsed for 5 minutes. Development time 10 minutes that is 20 minutes not including winding, shampooing and blow-drying. Tell your stylist that your perms are not lasting long enough and see if your mobile hairdresser can come up with a solution.
