Matthew asks:
My hair is VERY VERY curly due to my mixed heritage (English & Jamaican) it is not afro hair, just very curly. I used to have it relaxed frequently but eventually had to shave all my hair off as it was breaking and very damaged due to the chemicals. I then tried a hot straightening treatment as well as a cold straightening treatment. Neither of which were very good. I have recently been recommended a Japanese straightening method, as it costs about 250 I wanted to get an established pros advice before I spent so much on my fairly short hair. I have GHDs but due to my busy lifestyle I just do not have the time to use irons every day, on top of the time it takes whenever I am in a club or playing sport my hair goes back to its natural frizzy/curly state due to the heat so I really need a permanent option! Please offer me any advice/recommendations on what I can/should do.

I think you have stressed your hair out and it is in shock. I think it really needs a good rest, time to recover and grow. Instead of thinking of having straight hair, why do you not consider wavy short hair. There are many products available now that you can apply to your hair to achieve a deep smooth wave which will stay in place until you wash the product out. You could use a texturising cream, this will just loosen up the curls but not make them straight. When your hair becomes moist it will not revert to the tight curls. You could then add some Shock wave hair control gel or cream to keep your style in place. Try it, you might be surprised at the result.





Charlotte asks:
I really want longer hair and am considering having hair extensions. I wanted clip in ones as I thought that they would be the least likely to harm my natural hair. However I have been told by a hairdresser that they will fall out very easily and to have the ones which are glued to my head. I have heard many stories about them making peoples hair fall out and mine is naturally fine anyway. I love my hair and do not want it to get damaged but I cannot stand it being so short and want long hair again. I know hair can be woven in but that costs a lot and at 17 that is money I do not have?

The benefits of clip in hair extensions is that you can apply and remove them anytime you want. They are useful if you just want a new look when you are going out, or to add more body or colour to your hair. No hair extension technique is permanent, however the way in which they are applied will determine the gap period between them being removed and reapplied because of your own natural hair growth. I do not think that you will have many problems with your own hair growing at the age of 17, just keep it in good condition, do not use straighteners too much and eat healthy. You will find you will soon have nice long hair. My advice is just use the clip in as fun and do not get too stressed out about it.







Michelle asks:
Since I was 13 I have been colouring my natural dark brown hair blonde, but recently it has started to go a horrible yellow tone at the roots, so I am thinking about colouring it a medium brown with some golden highlights do you think this would scare me to much and make me hate it when it is done. I cannot keep the blonde no longer as I am 26 now with 2 children and it is getting hard work to look after it.

My advice would be to go to a good salon and have your hair coloured professionally. All hair has yellow tone in it and this is exposed when you lighten your hair. A good salon will use an ash tone to subdue the yellow tone through your hair. As for highlights, again the result will depend on how many different colours you have running through your hair from roots to ends.
The best option would be to go and have a consultation with a good salon they will advise you what will look great and be easy to maintain. Being 26 and having two children, you need to still give sometime to yourself and your hair! Treat yourself and have a fantastic service in a good salon!
