Abundance asks:
How do I maintain my hair when it is under extensions?

Diane ShawAnswered By:

It really depends what type of extensions you have.

Full head weave: Your hair should have been washed, conditioned and neatly corn rowed with synthetic hair. Some people use wool to stitch the weave on, this is not good because wool traps and attracts oils and moisture and will eventually starts to smell. Your hair should remain tidy underneath your extensions. Try not to apply any grease based products to your own hair extensions (they wonít grow) or use any firm holding sprays, these contribute to your hair extensions becoming cloggy and heavy and eventually dirty. There is very little maintenance required for your hair underneath, because it is not being affected by any chemicals or continual grooming, so your hair is resting and growing. Try not to keep a weave-on in more than 8 weeks. I think it is a good idea to release your hair, have it washed and conditioned and then your weave reapplied. When your hair is in its natural state and resting, it will grow all by itself without any assistance. ...More >

Lace Wigs or Wigs: I do not advise using a wig cap for the same reason as using wool. I do not advise keeping your lace wig on continually for more than 2 weeks at a time if possible. You need to keep the area around your hairline clean and free from potential infection or skin discolouration or pigmentation problems. There is very little maintenance required for your hair underneath, because it is not being affected by any chemicals or continual grooming, so your hair is resting and growing. When your hair is in its natural state and resting, it will grow all by itself without any assistance.

Integrated Hair extension techniques such as strand by strand, integrated weave, hook and latch, micro ring track, clip-ins or weft bonded techniques. This means your hair is still exposed in between layers of hair extensions. It is best not to use any grease base products, but use a good quality leave in spray condition each morning and evening. Try to use a good quality brush that will groom from the root without pulling out your hair extensions, this will help to avoid matting. Wash your hair once or twice a week with a good quality shampoo for greasy hair. This shampoo type will moisture your hair without adding grease which might contribute to premature loosening of your extension.

Charlotte asks:
I am 13 years old I have long fine hair and want a change and was thinking about going curly I have never had anything done to my hair other than having it trimmed should I have a perm?

Damien CarneyAnswered By:

I think 13 is a little young to consider having a perm. That said. A soft perm can add body and life to fine limp hair. With todayís technology and techniques it is easy to achieve a natural looking perm to most hair textures and lengths. Keep in mind to get the most of your perm, you need to keep the hair conditioned, trimmed and avoid excess heat this will maintain the life of the perm and keep the hair in tiptop condition.







Claire asks:
I am 40 years old and at a loss as to what to do with my hair. For a while now I have been growing it so the back reaches the centre of my back but it always looks so lifeless and shapeless. I have layers through the top section and I have been colouring it myself with the L'Oreal Excellence brown mahogany shade. Pleas don't tell me to visit my salon colourist because I simply do not have the time or money for the upkeep of salon colouring! I have been toying with the idea of having 2-21/2 inches lopped off the back so that I may be able to go for a more bobbed effect but it has taken me so long to get it to this length that I am really reluctant to go for it even though I go for regular "just the ends off please" trims. I just don't know what to do to recapture its shine and style that I would have thought nothing of changing perhaps 15-20 years ago. Any ideas?

You are in the best years of your life but all of us in our 40's want to look younger- and so we should. You are obviously not happy with you hair cut so itís important to search high and low for a style you really dream of. When you find that look then go for it without hesitation. You hair seems to be over layered and limp at the ends, so I definitely think you need to lose some length. Go for a sophisticated sexy cut and then continue colouring yourself.
