Samantha asks:
My hair is curly - but it tends to be more wavy underneath and the top layers seem to be more wavy. I like straightening my hair sometimes, but it always looks weird! I see all these girls who straighten their hair and it looks perfect and mine just looks frizzy. I also want to cut my hair and want something with bangs, suggestions?

Something like the FHI irons and a flat iron spray. before using them will help keep your hair straight. Regarding your haircut itís tough to say without seeing your hair but if you do go for a fringe/bangs make sure you do not have it cut too short as this will be more difficult to keep straight with your hair being curly. Also try to keep the layers longer so the weight helps keep your hair smooth and straight.

Without seeing your hair, we would need to take some of the following into consideration which might be contributing to the odour you are experiencing. ...More >

Greasy scalp
High activity sport
Using oily products
Hair extension type used for braiding
Condition of your own hair prior to braiding.

I would recommend the following before you start braiding your hair, wash it with a shampoo for oily hair and condition it with a conditioner for dry hair.

Use a good quality synthetic hair for braiding your hair and request that the braids are not too thick or too tight.

I would also purchase a good quality leave in spray conditioner like V05 miracle mist (non greasy). Do no use any oils or hairspray on your head. Twice a week gently wash your hair with the shampoo for oily hair, towel wrap and then leave to dry normally.

Braiding hair was used several hundred of years ago to keep hair neat, free from head lice and manageability in hot weather. It is usually uncommon to be experiencing odour and smells just after two days, this would normally follow several weeks later if hair had not been tended to.

Robyn asks:
I have dyed my hair since I was 8 years old and now at the moment I dyed my hair brown and had bits of blonde in it and now I want to go blonde but not bleach blonde if you canít solve this problem then I have got another question. I want to go black and buy strips of blonde and leave my hair like that for about 3 months but then I might want to dye my hair a different colour to go lighter what can I do.

Whatever you decide to do, going lighter will now mean using bleach as a tint will not lift tint. Think carefully about going black as this is a very difficult colour to remove and going blonde will not be an option. May I suggest having a consultation with your stylist or colour specialist as they will be able to give you advice on colour that suits your person and complexion
