I have curly hair, I love my curls, but just the last couple of times they have not been right. First they were a little flat at the roots and fluffy (with my normal hair products), now the curl has come back at the roots but its still fluffy and soft which is nice but I get the fly away frizzy look. The only thing I did differently just once the last time was use a new conditioner once, because they were out of my usual, it was a Schwarzkopf conditioner for heat styling damage protection. But last night I used my usual Pantene Hydrating curls Shampoo and Conditioner but its still a bit fluffy and frizzy. Also I am on a tablet Duromine which is an appetite suppressant would that affect my hair? ps I am Caucasian with natural curls.

Yes! The medication could affect your hair, however it sounds to be as though your have a product build up. May I suggest using a good clarifying shampoo and then try the Schwarzkopf.

I recently had extensions taken out and blonde hi-lites put in but my hair is now very greasy on the roots and very dry at the ends. Can you suggest anything please?
|Answered By: |
I do not think the extensions would have changed your hair type in any way, but with the highlights it may just need some moisture putting back. It may also be that you need to have your ends trimmed if they were not cut after you had them taken out. As your hair is greasy at the roots, you need to avoid putting your conditioner at the roots. Just focus on the mid to ends of the hair. Use a twice weekly deep penetrating conditioner like the Joico K-PAK Reconstructoras this actually repairs and conditions your hair. That should help the condition of your hair so it's more manageable.

I have medium brown hair and I really want to dye my hair a white blonde. I have a very pale skin tone and I have been told it would not look at odds with my skin. I already have had my hair bleached six months ago to go a red colour because I had black hair at the time. It has faded to a medium brownish red now but I have my heart set on going a lot lighter as I am miserable with my hair it always look boring and messy as it is such a non-colour. I have friends who have dyed their hair this colour willing to help me, one of whom is a professional, but I would like to know what will happen with the bleach underneath my hair, what products will I need ie. I have seen lightening kits for before you dye your hair blonde but is that a pre-lightener or is there another product needed, what ones are good to use and how should I do it, ie, put the lightener on and then could I dye it blonde straightaway or wait a week or something? There's just no information around for me to find on how to do this.

Pre-lighteners are bleaches and so by applying one to your already bleached hair, the condition might deteriorate. Bleaching over already bleached locks is not recommended and should only be done by a qualified colour technician. As your hair was so dark before, it will be harder to lighten it as the change of colour is so extreme. I would recommend that you visit your colourist, booking in for a consultation to carry out a stand test allowing you see the after results and hair condition. This will prevent disappointment and allow you to ensure you are happy with the outcome. The most crucial tip for lightening hair is to do regular deep conditioning treatments to nourish and moisturize your hair from any damage caused by colouring.
