Cynthia asks:
The hair on the lower side of my head has turned black. I have never dyed my hair before. What do you think is the cause of this?

Your hair is coloured because you have cells that pump pigment into the hair as itís growing.†Usually, as you get older, these pigment cells can get tired and stop pumping colour into your hair, which is why hair often goes grey.

Sometimes, pigment cells take little breaks, so itís perfectly possible for hairs to be different colours along the lengths.†Various medications can cause sudden hair changes, as can prolonged stress, so this could also be a factor.





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.
