It seems to me that your hair is feeling the effects of heat styling from using hair straighteners every day. I would suggest using a shampoo and conditioner that is going to help re-hydrate your hair and help it to stay naturally straight and healthy so then you will find you donít need to use the straighteners as much. In the long run this will mean your hair will be in better condition and will even give more natural volume. I suggest trying my Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner available in Boots stores. It will really help to tame any fly aways whilst at the same time the P2Fifty Complex within the formulation helps to prevent hair from excessive heat damage. If you have dry ends I was also advise you to use an intensive treatment once or twice a week to ensure you are conditioning your hair to the max and locking in lots of moisture. Hair technology has moved on a lot and now you can get straighteners which have titanium plates rather than ceramic which gives better results faster so you not only save time but cause less damage to your hair too. Maybe have a look online at some brands that offer this and check out My Poker Straight Super Hero Straighteners which offer the latest titanium technology plates. Remember to always protect your hair with protection mist before styling too!





Julie asks:
I dyed my hair at home for many years to cover the grey and it only lasted a week or so at the side of my head. I have been to the hairdresser to get it dyed the last 3 times but its not lasting any longer at the sides. I would be grateful if you could give me some advice on what to do to make the dye last longer.

If your colour is fading to reveal grey hair then this is possibly because your current colour is not right for you. However, if the grey that you are noticing is appearing at the roots then this is your natural re-growth coming through. Noticing your natural re-growth within 3 weeks of getting your coloured done could mean that the colour you are using is simply too dark, revealing your grey roots quicker as the colour difference is making it more noticeable. A good option would be to incorporate some highlights through the sides or lighten the base tone to reduce the contrast in colour, therefore not showing up your grey tones as quickly. This could give you greater longevity in your colour and give a more balanced look once your natural grey starts appearing.







Frustrated Mum asks:
Why is my toddlerís hair greasy even though i wash it every bathtime..

An oily scalp is the bodies natural way of protecting that area. The oil is there to create an environment capable of protecting the scalp from factors such as sunlight, wind, and bacteria.The oil is called sebum and too much on your childís scalp can be attributed to a couple of things.

Over washing, can stimulate the scalp and prompt it to produce even more sebum, so lots of washing means lots of grease(roots) but it can also dry out the ends and then create combination hair .Production of grease can also be affected by a diet lacking in essential fatty acids found in salmon , walnuts , flaxseeds so this could be a factor. and hair , particularly childrens delicate follicles do not require such stringent cleaning. Dehydration, so lots of water or fluids. Excessive brushing can also over stimulate the scalp and cause the scalp oil to travel down the hair lengths , so a softer brush is a good option .Always start at the ends and work up when brushing.So hair brushed a couple of times a day is fine , it also gets the child used to it.But picking up a brush every time your toddlers hair is out of place is not nessicary just use your hands to smooth it down if it appears messy to you.
