Brielle asks:
I would like to perm my hair, and would appreciate some advice before I take the plunge. After years of straightening my hair, I decided to get a keratin treatment (5 years ago) and since then my hair has been quite temperamental Ė it wonít hold colour or curls. I donít want to be disappointed if the perm doesnít take. What do you think the solution is?

Chemicals cannot go over chemicals! Do not perm your hair if it has already been chemically treated. It doesnít matter how long ago the treatment was done, as there will always be traces of it in your hair. Chemical straighteners and perms work to restructure the bonds in your hair and form a new shape. If these are already weak the chances are the hair will just become more damaged, which will be irreversible.

Jennie asks:
I have really fine hair that is also thinning. I want to have a style that will be easy to look after but also appear fuller. I have a square shaped face so itís hard to find styles that look ok. Please help.

Square shaped faces often have characteristics that include an angular jaw, so try styles with long, soft layers towards the top of the head to draw the eye away from the bottom of your face, creating an instant disguise. You can soften a square face with waves and curls, which will give the appearance of a bouncy and voluminous cut. Whether you opt for a long or short style, try not to go too short or too long Ė a couple of inches below or above the chin is ideal. Wispy layers will soften a square face and add height at the top of the head making your face look longer. To make hair appear fuller, try adding a few short layers to increase volume. Off-centre partings will give your hairstyle a bit of an edge and also look great backcombed for extra height.

DJ asks:
Hi, I wanted to curl my hair, so I got natural wave perming done.

The first day, it was wavy enough and i liked it, but the next day the waves became so loose and my hair became frizzy. I had done permanent straightening 2 years back and cysteine treatment 1 year back. Itís been a week since I got perming done and my hair looks really bad. Itís frizzy and neither curly nor straight. My natural hair is better than this!

Iím thinking of getting my hair chemically straightened again, but Iím afraid my hair will get damaged. How long should I wait before chemically straightening my hair after perming?

Okay no more chemical treatments invest in some professional hair care, moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and treatment. Try and decided if you want wavy or straight and stick to a very strict hair care regime for a month to try and encourage the best out of your hair. Use a treatment masque x per week, follow the instructions to the rule, comb through before rinsing and then make sure you use either a smoothing balm or curl enhancing cream before blow drying. Take your time with a diffuser or a really good pure bristle paddle brush and you will find that your hair will respond well. ...More >

Once your hair is back into great condition you will be able to wear it curly sometimes and smooth sometimes. You have to have great conditioned hair and the correct styling tools then practice makes perfect.

Good luck
