Rachel asks:
I have very long frizzy-curly hair. It is neither curly nor straight so I have to style it which is really drying it out. Mousses and products used to curl it make it like straw and straightening splits the ends and this is really thinning my hair out. I need to know the best products to use as deep conditioning products leave my hair feeling greasy and flat but without it is frizzy!

It seems to me that you have to spend a lot of time and tremendous effort in styling your hair. You say your hair has a tendency to frizz and neither goes curly or straight. I am convinced that your hair length and cut is totally wrong for your hair. With the right cut, you should be able to wear your hair curly or straight with ease, and not have to fight with it like you do. I would find yourself a great hairdresser that understands your type of hair and get the cut right. Then you will have to re-assess the styling products after your new cut, as styling will be far easier and less stressful. You will still use curling, anti-frizzing products but will not have to use half the amount that you have been using to create a great finish on your hair. Treatments and conditioning products will not flatten your hair as before. So get your cut sorted out and the products will follow.

Avril asks:
I have purchased majimeches tubes and sachets as I just cannot get an appointment with my hairdresser very frustratingly before going on holiday. My mother used to hairdresser and sometimes does my hair. So I decided to buy majimeches which she has never used but I know my hairdresser uses on me. My problem is I can not read the instructions as they are not in English. Would you be able to tell me how to use them? I have very dark hair naturally and my hairdresser normally sends it a warmish blonde rather than platinum

Majimeche is a simple system to use.

Yet it also needs a full understanding of the results achievable. You mention that you have dark brown hair which can be anything from a base shade 2 - 4 depending on what tone your hair actually is. ...More >

I know it may be frustrating not been able to get into see your stylist but I would recommend that this would be by far the safest option for you as the colour achieved is totally dependant on what base shade you have to work off.

The majimech colour states that it lifts within fifteen minutes yet this is fifteen minutes from being in contact with the hair to be coloured. If you start at the back of the head and work your way up by the time the top is completed the underneath sections could have been on your hair for 30-40 minutes depending on the time in applying the colour, which would result in a lighter tone on the underneath compared to the last sections completed on the top sections of your hair.

Due to the above I would highly recommend you visit your hairdresser to ensure you get exactly what you want.

Kate asks:
I have got very long thick naturally brown hair. I want to lighten it in the sun on my next holiday, I have been told that vinegar will lighten brown hair in the sun as opposed to lemon in blonde hair. Is that true or is my work mate having a laugh?

I think they might be pulling your leg, and if this was a well known fact that worked, I think a lot of people would be using it instead of purchasing professional hair colour kits from the shop or having their hair coloured properly by a hairdresser. I think that if you want to be sure of a certain look and keep your hair in good condition, then a visit to the hairdressers might work better.
