Roberto asks:
Hello everyone.

When I was 17/18/19 years old I have always punish my hair with straightener and hair dry, I would do this daily but now my hair its really dry, cant really create a style and I have to say that it really looks bad all the time!

I wash my every 2 days with Loreal products to help with dry hair but that doesn’t seem to help at all.

To be honest I really dont mind to have my hair short on the sides and on the back but on the top I like it big as it will let create some kind of style on it even looking dry and damaged.

I would love to consult a specialist but I kind don’t have the money for it as each consult would be 200/300 pounds.

Can someone, please, advice me in what should I do. I would really like to have my good looking hair back but day after day it seems impossible.

If anyone could help me with this I would more than appreciated.

Okay the first thing to remember is the hair is growing all the time and so dependent on how long your hair is will determine whether the dryness is caused from over drying and ironing. I suspect not as you don’t say how old you are now. I would imagine its more a change in texture as well as potentially diet and environment. The first thing is to always make sure you have a varied healthy diet if not take that into account or take a supplement for a temporary period. You can buy these on the high street very cost effectively. Make sure you use a moisturing shampoo and there are some amazing treatment masques available that really do add moisture and leave the cuticle smooth which allows the hair to reflect light and look much more healthy. Always cover with a shower cap to allow the heat from your scalp to help make the product more effective leave for up to 20 mins before combing through and rinsing. Many of the more professional treatments require conditioner to be used afterwards so again make sure you comb the conditioner through the ends of the hair and leave for 1 min before rinsing. It really does make a huge difference to the way the hair looks and feels.

Get the back and sides cut, follow the above and perhaps get a wax to add extra shine and control or use an argan oil if your leaving the hair to dry naturally.

Jan asks:
Hi! I straighten my hair everyday with a no heat method. I only use heat on the front of my hair because it’s angled and unless there is heat it doesn’t always straighten (I use heat protectant spray). Naturally my hair is wavy(soft) and i have it angled in the front. Within an hour of straightening it the angled area and my ends have curled again. How can I keep my ends and angles straight? Thank you!

Hi Jan.

If you hair has a natural wave it will be the moisture in the air that is making you wave come back through. ...More >

I would use, Liquid gold gelee mixed with a small amount of Crystal shine serum when you blow dry.

I wouldn’t use a heat protection spray ( this can actually dehydrate your hair making it more prone to absorbing moisture from the air) not always but this can happen.

After straightening I would either apply a small amount of hair spray ( prevents moisture absorption) or a small amount of Crystal shine serum again.

Important to note that The Crystal shine serum has heat protection properties.



Ian asks:
Hi, please give me some advice. I am 25 and receding a bit at the front, I would like a trendy hair style that is a bit shorter and with more style that I can mess up a bit when I go out at night. I like to be fashionable and really want to reduce the obvious receding can you recommend something that might suit me - I have quite a long face which seems to make the receding worse. My hair is quite boring and needs a good cut at the moment.

If your forehead is becoming more prominent I would cut the hair short all over while slightly tapering the back and sides. Also I would recommend hair paste – apply to hair to make it messy by distributing throughout – then smooth down sides and back. This minimises the appearance of hair loss because of the rough texture and extra volume.
