Char asks:
I have wore my hair up in a ponytail for years now and my hair is starting to go much thinner at the front and it is starting to make me look like I have bald patches because of where I wear it up so tight so what should I do to get my hair to grow back thicker there? People have said to wear my hair down but I do not want to because I like it up so should I just wear it looser or something?

Always refrain from tying your hair back so harshly, (especially when wet) as this causes damage to hair follicles around the hairline. If you only feel comfortable with your hair back, try changing the way you tie it. This way you are not constantly damaging the same hairs which will lead to breakage. Another tip is using a head band as this will cause less tension to your hair. You need to put the condition back into your hair, try using Hot Shots Volume Detox (RRP 6.99) this treatment shampoo in a shot is specially formulated to encourage circulation around the hair follicle to increase uptake of the nutrients and to boost hair body, volume and texture. A side sweeping fringe will give the appearance of thicker hair and a change of parting will disguise the look of any bald patches. I would strongly recommend a restyle, as if your hair was easier to manage you may not be so tempted to tie it back this will also make your hair around the hairline stronger whist encouraging new growth. However if you insist in having your hair tied back a great new way of doing so is to create a messy knot. This is a softer style so your hair is not so severely pulled back and will be less damaging.
Take the top section of hair (half up) and fix into place with a snag free band
Take small sections of the hair underneath and loosely pin around the existing ponytail
This creates a messy pinned in pony that is edgy and glam.

Elaine Bryce asks:
I have fairly short straight hair which I have permed to give me a bit of a root lift. I have this done at home by a mobile hairdresser. However the perm never seems to last more than 6 weeks. She only takes hr to perm and blow dry my hair. As I only require a bit of a lift, she leaves the solution on for approx 10 mins. Is this sufficient time to gain the result I require.

It sounds as though there are not enough rods being put into your hair. It could be that the rods are too large. Or the lotion is not left on long enough. Lotion can be left on anything up to 20 minutes all depending on the lotion and whether you use heat or not. I find it hard to fathom that a root perm and blow-dry can all be done in 3/4 hour. Neutralizer should be left on at least 5 minutes after being rinsed for 5 minutes. Development time 10 minutes that is 20 minutes not including winding, shampooing and blow-drying. Tell your stylist that your perms are not lasting long enough and see if your mobile hairdresser can come up with a solution.

Haseena asks:
I have done rebonding for the past four years or so. I was wondering if rebonding or flat ironing hair a few times a week would be more damaging? I am considering stopping rebonding treatments as they are quite costly. I have unruly frizzy curly hair naturally. Please advise.

Hi Haseena, rebonding breaks down the bonds in your hair using chemicals, and damages the inner structure of the hair (Cortex), which is irreversible. Flat ironing hair (straightening and blow-drying) is still damaging to the hair, but heat damage is better than chemical damage. Therefore, flat ironing is a better choice as you can then control a lot of the damage by using products that protect the hair from harsh elements such as heat. I recommend using products such as the Mizani Thermasmooth range, which is for naturally curly hair that is styled straight and blocks out humidity to help keep it styled for days. Mizani have night treatments to use and frizz controlling products too. ...More >

If you are looking for a more longer-lasting smoothing solution to tame your mane, I would recommend the Kebelo ADVANTAGE in-salon treatment, as this is a fast, easy and affordable way to gain smooth, glossy and manageable hair. The three-part system, which uses Carbocysteine smoothing technology, works on each and every hair strand, adding strength, giving support and boosting shine. The best part? The treatment lasts up to 100 days, equating to weeks of frizz-free hair and reducing the need to use straightening irons.
