TeMac asks:
I have medium length curly hair that never seems to grow. It grows somewhat on the sides, but the back just seems to keep thinning at the ends. Can you please tell me what I can do to make my hair grow?!

Hair grows at a rate of an average quarter of an inch to half an inch each month; however its important to realize that that depends on factors such as diet and lifestyle. Also, hair that is treated harshly can break off making it difficult to achieve the length you desire. To make sure that your hair is growing as much as it can - and staying attached to your head! You need to make sure you are protecting it and lavishing it with lots of TLC! ...More >

Use moisturising shampoo and conditioners, such as my Poker Straight Shampoo with P2Fifty, (4.49 for 250ml) followed by my SofLee SofLee Intense Conditioner, (5.99 for 200ml).

Use treatments in between visits to the salon; my R U Taking Protection from hair that wont grow past a certain length treatment (6.99 for 200ml) will give your hair that extra love and attention it needs.

Washing your hair too much can strip it of all its natural, essential oils and so Id recommend trying washing your hair every 2-3 days to see if this helps.

However, even if you are desperate for your hair to grow, you should still continue to get it trimmed every six to eight weeks. Even just an eighth of an inch should banish split ends getting rid of the thinning you mention at the ends.

As well as making sure you stay up to date with your trims, try my R U Taking Protection from split ends serum (6.99 for 50ml). Your hair reflects the health of your body, so if you try to make sure you live a healthy lifestyle and do some exercise, you should notice a difference in the health of your hair.

Take all of these tips into consideration and get ready to grow, grow, grow!

Alyssa asks:
I am 17 I would just like to ask one question. I use to have brown hair but I got bored of it so I dyed it black, now I love the colour and it really suits me. The only problem is I dyed it and like 2 weeks later my colour faded and my roots showed horribly, so I redyed my hair, the same thing happened again. I just wanted to know if there was a certain kind of dye I would have to use to make the colour completely permanent, because I would love to stay black haired and not have to constantly dye and kill my hair. Is there a way I can dye my hair permanently.

Permanent colour will fade. To get the best results from your colour you need to look after the condition with good quality shampoo, conditioner and treatments. Ask your stylist about the LOreal Professional range of shampoo and conditioners for colour treated hair. Providing you only have your roots re-touched each time and refresh the tone that has faded though out the mid-lengths and ends your hair would stay in good condition. As we get to the summer months the sun will also increase colour fade unless you protect it. Visit a good professional salon for colour and hair care advice on Professional home shampoo and treatments to protect your investment in your hair colour.

Dimple asks:
I have thick slightly wavy black (South Asian Type) waist long hair. My hair tends to get frizzy and so I decided to iron it out. I have the ConAir Iron, I used it with Biosilk iron oil. It straightened out pretty well, but when I washed it out my hair looks worse than before I used the iron. Appears very brittle, dry and frizzy. Does Ironing cause this? I have been using Henna on my hair for almost 8 years now. Applying it twice a year. I was thinking is there any way to stop using it and move to hair colouring without causing funny discolorations on the hair.

First of all waist long hair is too long - you might want to take off about a foot and a half. That will help with the condition, your ConAir Iron wont hurt your hair; not cutting it will. As for colour ...Henna can be drying, but DO NOT put colour over Henna.
