My hair is very thick, curly and dry. I used to wash, dry, and straighten it everyday and for the past year I have been getting blonde highlights regularly. Now my hair is weak and snapping off at a lot of the ends making my hair short and it feel likes straw and looks a mess, my hair feels a lot thinner. I got my hair trimmed and noticed it was quite damaged. I now wash my hair less regularly using a deep conditioner whenever I can and then let it dry naturally rather than put the heat on it from the hair dryer, I have been straightening it less often and using a heat protector spray when I do. I have not had anymore highlights for about 3 months. Because my hair is thick and
curly I find that when I don’t straighten it and tie it up even this is making the ends snap and breaking strands of my hair as they are all different lengths and with constantly straightening it my curls are now ruined and stick out all over the place so I cant leave it down. I was wondering if tying my hair up when it is curly be making things worse? Is there anything else I can do to help my hair? My hair is quite a long length so should I maybe get it cut a little? Is there a certain shampoo/conditioner or really just a product that will help my hair I could use?

Firstly you are doing all the right things by straightening and colouring your hair less, and using intensive conditioning treatments. I would suggest having your haircut a little more, but you should also consider having a keratin treatment, as this will help strengthen your hair and make the styling process a lot easier. At the same time carry on using heat protection products when drying or straightening your hair.

I dyed my hair today trying for a light golden brown from a soft black. Only my roots took and the rest of my hair lightened, but stayed dark. Should I recolor to a dark again to cover the mistake? I think this happened because my hair was previously colored and the only natural part was what has grown out.

Yes that’s exactly what has happened. Also a tip: - tint won’t colour over tint. This would be a professional job at a salon

It sounds to me like you need some guidance on what to go for when looking for a hairstyle as so far you haven’t found anything right for you. It also sounds as if you have always had long hair and could you possibly be just a bit bored of this and in need of a change? I say you should pluck up the courage and go for something different…you never know you might love it! Don’t panic as it can always go back to the way it was eventually if that is what you want but one style that I would suggest is a gorgeous flattering long bob. It is such a great look and a big trend this season. I would definitely recommend this style if you are wanting a bit of a change but still want to keep a bit of length as it’s not long hair, not short hair, but somewhere in between just above the shoulders. If you want to get rid of your black hair I would recommend dying it brown. Don’t worry this can be done at home as long as you’re careful and follow some simple rules. Firstly mix together water and lemon juice and pour the mixture into a spray bottle. You will then need to wash your hair using a shampoo that is normally used to treat dandruff as this will strip the original black dye from your hair, once you have done this apply the lemon juice mixture for 5 minutes and rinse out. The dandruff shampoo and lemon juice can make the hair quite dry so I would suggest applying a leave-in conditioner after using them. You will then need to buy a hair dye removal kit available from Boots or a pharmacy, this contains chemicals that will strip your hair of any colour including the original colour of your hair; once you have used this your hair will resemble an orange colour that you will quickly want to get rid of! Rub a small amount of conditioner through your hair and rinse out. Once your hair is dry it is now ready for the permanent brown dye. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully on the back of the dye box and rinse out. Once you’re back to brunette I would recommend using my Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner which act as deeply intensive moisturizers, to refresh and revitalize coloured hair. The luxuriously thick formulas will help to repair the damage and drying effects that colouring hair can cause…..keeping colour vibrant and hair in fantastic condition. Colour specific products are an absolute must for putting the moisture back in – I hope this helps!”
