Edna asks:
I would like to ask you, which one is better texturizer or relaxer? What is the difference between lye and no-lye? I texturize my hair but Iím not sure if I should continue texturizing or relaxing?

Steve RowbottomAnswered By:

Both texturisers and relaxers contain chemicals that restructure the hairs natural bonds permanently.

A relaxer is suited to someone who requires poker straight hair and a texturiser is suited to someone who wishes to have a more manageable curl. It can reduce ísí shaped curls to more of a ízí shape. You need to think about what you want in the long run and if itís a more natural look youíre after, my advice would be to stop the chemical treatments.† As for which relaxer is best, again they are both chemicals, so neither is what our hair truly wants. A lye relaxer works quicker to break down the bonds and has a higher PH. A No-lye relaxer is better for sensitive scalps, holds milder chemical ingredients and a slightly lower PH than lye relaxers. Neither one is better; it all depends on the individual. I would visit a reputable salon and have a consultation with a stylist to truly ascertain whatís best for you. ...More >

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?

Steve RowbottomAnswered By:

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?

Steve RowbottomAnswered By:

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.
