I have longish hair that is coloured from my natural mousy brown to a mahogany red/brown. I have always used colour protect shampoos, but recently my hair has started to get very frizzy. I
was wondering if you think changing to anti frizz shampoos will ruin my colour or if you could recommend any products I can use?

It sounds like your hair needs some TLC! 90% of us suffer with dry, brittle or frizzy hair as our hair is lacking in moisture. It is imperative to allow moisture to get inside the hair follicles to achieve smooth, shiny and healthy hair. This can only be achieved by continuing to protect hair from chemical and environmental damage. I don’t think you should stop using a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner as they really are the best thing to use to protect coloured hair whilst also helping to restore your moisture levels. . If you find that your hair is going frizzy then I suggest that you start using an intensive treatment on your hair regularly as this will help to repair damaged follicles, improve porosity, elasticity and general health and appearance of your hair I also suggest giving your hair a regular treat like my Hot shots 2 Minute Miracle. It restores 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 of your hair. So you can banish the dreaded frizz. To keep your hair a gorgeous rich mahogany colour you should continue to use a shampoo and conditioner that protects the colour. My Colour Love shampoo and conditioner would be perfect for your hair, 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 hair, 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 hair colour will not only be safe but will sparkle with health!

I have wavy, thick hair. I had my hair relaxed 8 months ago
and now my hair is dry and brittle. I am planning to have my hair curl, is this a good idea
|Answered By: |
If you straightened your hair 8 months ago and it is still dry and brittle, then I do not recommend processing it for now. Before you do anything else to your hair, it needs to be in better condition.
I recommend the following protocol.
1. A good haircut would probably do you justice.
2. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week with Joico’s K Pak Shampoo and Conditioner.
3. Start a series of reconstructor and hydrating treatments. I recommend Joico’s K Pak Reconstructor and also their Intense Hydrator.
4. During the day use the Leave In Reconstructor.
5. Stay away from any thermal hair styling such as blow drying, flat irons, curling irons and hot rollers. If you follow the protocol, you should see results.
In the future, whenever you straighten or curl your hair chemically make sure the stylist strand tests frequently.

I have long, medium thickness naturally white blonde hair and a
fringe but I feel really boring because the most drastic thing I have ever had done is having it cut from bum length to my shoulders when I was about 9! I like the colour but I want a new look for 6th form in September. I'm thinking short/bob style but my fringe is causing problems as I can’t find a style that looks right. Have you got any suggestions or should I grow my fringe out to make things easier. I have had it since I was 2! I have a round face but people say I have good cheek bones will a bob make my face look fatter?

If you want to dazzle all your classmates on the first day of sixth form, then going for a bob is a really good way of making a statement. They’ve really come back with an absolute vengeance over the past year starting with the "Pob" famously created on Posh and soon emulated by Katie Holmes. This iconic 1920’s cut has become so hot that more LA fashionista’s have jumped on board such as Eva Longoria and this look even shone through at the catwalks of Chanel. If you have a round face I would recommend going for a softer chop with a side-parting and layering to elongate your face similar to that of Eva Longoria this look is hot for this winter as it highlights the sharp black suits that we are seeing, sleek pencil skirts and generally having more bold statements in fashion for women. It’s a powerful look that goes against the grain of that typical LA look even more of a selling point is the ease at which to style your new bob. For a sleek look blow dry using my Lee Stafford Flat Iron Protection Mist after rubbing a little shine serum in your hands and smoothing through your hair. Your hair will be in the most beautiful condition with this smoothing and moisturising serum. To let your hair down after a hard week of coursework, go for a rock chick/party image by applying my new Messed Up Wonder Webb pump a small amount into your hands and rub together. Pull hands apart to see the webbing effect, work vigorously through the whole of your hair and then finger into place - perfect for that Friday night on the town!
