Shubnam asks:
My hair is a bit longer than shoulder length and it has started to fall out drastically. I donít even have to touch it and it will fall out. However, when I cut it to chin length it does not fall out. Is there anything I can do to prevent it from falling out so much as I do not want to cut it?

When you have longer hair, more falls out, as there is a lot more of it! Kťrastase has an excellent range of products you can use to stimulate the growth cells on your scalp, so itís worth investing in these to help with your problem. I recommend Kťrastase Bain Stimuliste GL, which is an energizing shampoo for hair prone to hair loss, and Kťrastase Lotion Densitive GL, which will add texture and substance.

Coral asks:
Hi, I really need some advice about relaxing my hair. Itís something Iíve wanted to do since I was in high school as I have extremely thick, fairly dry and extremely curly hair.

I donít want to permanently straighten my hair; I just want to loosen my curly hair into beachy type waves. My hair is very healthy, despite the heat and bleach itís been abused to in the past. I havenít bleached in about a year and I tend to limit my straightening to once or twice a month now. But I just have very strong hair anyway, so it can withstand chemical treatments. Iím thinking of going to a Salon that has a clientele closer to my hair type, so a place that deals with mixed race or African type hair, such as my own as they may be a bit more experienced in how mine would react, but I donít want to fork out a lot of money if Iím not going to get what Iím after - as I know there have been a lot of mixed results. I just need advice about what to do, as I just want to - at least for a short time in my life, have low maintenance hair.

If your hair is very curly, permanently straightening it is going to help with reducing the curl more.

A texturiser, a treatment that is less harsh, could work, but not enough to achieve the beach waves you expect. ...More >

If you bleached your hair a year ago, it will still be in your hair structure and I would never process a chemical treatment, such as relaxing or texturising, on hair that has been previously bleached, as this is too damaging to the hair.

I would definitely recommend visiting a salon Ė you need a professional to test pieces of your hair and see what type of curl could be achieved. I know itís hard on a budget, but a professional can judge what is best and ensure that there is limited damage caused, and if you want quality, you have to be willing to pay. Do your research and go in for a consultation first. Any professional stylist would want to examine and test first before committing to anything.

Lizz asks:
Iím 16 years old and have long brown hair. Iíve used different shampoos and conditioners but none seem to help my dry, frizzy hair. Right now Iím using Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner and my hair has not changed at all. I like to straighten my hair some days but Iíd like something that will make my naturally curly hair look great too when I want to leave it curly.

There are two great ranges that I would like to suggest. One is for when you want to wear your hair curly, and the other for when you want it sleek and straight. ...More >

The Kebelo VELVET CURLS range consists of a shampoo, conditioner and defining cream, all of which have been designed to create perfect curls. Containing the super ingredient coconut oil, as well as chamomile and quinoa, the formula helps to separate, soften and smooth curly hair, without straightening it.

The Kebelo SILK range is suitable for all hair types susceptible to frizz and has been designed to control unmanageable manes to create smooth, shiny, weightless hair. There are three products in the SILK range Ė SILK Shampoo, SILK Conditioner and SILK Anti-frizz Cream Ė all enriched with luxury ingredients, including jojoba, argan oil, quinoa and keratin.

All products in these ranges are SLS- and Paraben-free, offering an ethical, safe and gentle approach to haircare.
