I have naturally thin but wavy hair. When I straighten it does not stay straight for very long at all and when I want it curly it does not curl properly and goes flat. I am also thinking of getting a loose perm but I have heard it can damage your hair. What can I do to keep my hair straight or curly?

When it comes to getting a perm try asking your stylist about getting an acid perm as it is far more gentle on your hair. For keeping your hair straight be sure to use a protective spray when using your irons – and GHDs are the best on the market at the moment for keeping your hair straight all day. Also, try spritzing my humidity spray all over you hair before going out and it will protect your hair from frizzing.
|Concetta asks: |
I am trying to grow out my hair, but it is growing very slowly. My hair is also very thin, lifeless, and very dry at the ends. Last year I used to straighten my hair and because of drying, my hair is now damaged. Now I let it dry naturally for fear of hurting my hair. In the past I have spent so much money on health products that do not do anything for my hair, and going to the salon the hair artist cuts my hair short. The reason I guess is because my hair is too thin to have it long. Please help me out! Please advise me on some very good hair products and how I should style my hair in a healthy way.

Thin hair naturally has a shorter life span than thick hair as it is weaker. Try looking in your local health food shop for any supplements with kelp, as this can help with thickening your hair and allow it to grow longer. Make sure to use a protective spray before straightening and blow drying to prevent your hair being frazzled by heat damage. Ask your hairdresser about what conditioning treatments they offer, or you can buy some intensive conditioners to use yourself when washing your hair. Leave them in for around five minutes before rinsing to allow the conditioners to really work on your hair.

Hi there, I know there are lots of questions about frizzy hair on your site but I am literally tearing my hair out at this stage! Over the last few years my hair type seems to have changed, in to a generally frizzy, dry mess. I use seemingly good shampoos (Aveda etc.) and conditioners but I also use hair straighteners and I presume this is what is really drying my hair out as it can be in good condition when it has been first washed. I know I should be using styling products to protect my hair from heat styling but the problem is that I have a real thing about using only natural products (i.e. organic, sulphate free etc.) on my hair, and seem to be having difficulty finding a heat protection /anti frizz product that could help and meet my needs. I fear that I am my own worse enemy in this case and it is a viscious circle as I can not straighten my hair as it is too frizzy to leave, but the more I straighten it the more frizzy (and thinned out?) it seems to get. Can you help? I would be eternally grateful if you could many thanks, Estelle

From the moment your hair leaves your head it is dead, so I’m sure it will not mind if the products you use are not organic! It is vital that you protect your hair when straightening and blow-drying as the extreme heat can seriously damage the shaft, and cause your hair to frizz. My P2Fifty Straightening and Blow Dry Spray protects your hair up to 250°c and also delivers light control to tame flyaways. To repair the current damage I would recommend some conditioning treatments to replace the lost moisture in your hair. Try my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment – it provides rigorous repair for your hair and is designed to fight the damaging effects of straightening irons whilst it refreshes, cleans and revitalizes.
