May asks:
Since I was 11, I had my hair relaxed coz it became so curly and unmanageable. I did that once every year. Last year, I decided to go on rebonding my hair because the hairdressers said that my hair is so unruly and the hair relax may not work anymore. So I did it. Now, my hair is going back to normal and it is so frizzy, dry plus it has ugly big curls near my neck. I am really confused on what to do. Should I go rebonding again? Many of my friends said that it would worsen the damage on my hair. But another hairdresser said that the damage only depends on the chemicals used. I want to save as much money as possible but I donít want my hair to go on this way. Please help me.

The most important thing you should be doing right about now is ensuring your hair gets nursed back to health.

Rebonding is a process whereby the chemical bonds within the hair are broken and then restructured, leaving you with long lasting straight hair that needs minimal retouches. ...More >

However rebonding can cause irrevocable damage, especially to afro hair types, although you didnít mention your hair type.

You mentioned you relaxed your hair in the past once a year and decided to go on to rebonding because the relaxer didnít work anymore. Can I just mention here that once a year for a relaxer retouch isnít sufficient for obtaining sleek straight hair and can also cause brakeage to the hair as the relaxed hair can not take the different textures of the hair.

Ideally you should be retouching the hairline once every 6-8 weeks depending on your hair type and how fast your hair grows.

No wonder you think the relaxed didnít work! Rebonding is a very strong chemical process and can cause hair to break and fall out if thereís lack of aftercare. Maintenance is paramount.

It may be true that it all depends on the chemicals but what that hairdresser failed to explain to you it also depends on the person whoís applying it! My advice to you is to stop rebonding and cut off the damage.

If you have very long hair and cannot bear to part with your beloved tresses than you should start treating your hair with moisture and protein base treatments, protein for strength and growth moisture to keep hair moisturised and nourished.

Julie asks:
I really want to know what sort of style to get for my next haircut. I am 21 years old with shoulder length dark brown hair. It is curly/ wavy and when I straighten it and go outside it goes frizzy within minutes no matter how long I take to straighten it and what products I use. I have a two year old son who keeps me on my toes so donít have all the time in the world to spend on my hair. Any advice?

Iím not sure if you have already tried this but I would try perhaps going slightly shorter in the length and then having some layers cut through your hair. ...More >

The reason for this is it would encourage your hair to curl and I would personally wear your hair more naturally as this will be easier and quicker to do.

Hope this helps.

I have been dying my naturally dark hair for years but I have a lot of grey regrowth. I donít want to go really blonde but would I be able to make it a lot lighter for a change. I havenít dyed it for about 2 months and there are a lot of grey roots.

Grey has become such a statement hair colour and is being embraced on the catwalks and in editorial shoots - but I completely understand taking the plunge and working the grey is daunting!

If you do opt to colour your hair, pick a tone one shade or two lighter than your original color. Going too light or too dark will make you look older. To test the look, try a semi-permanent solution that lasts 6 to 12 shampoos before going for lasting colour. And if you are still keen to go light, avoid an all over light colour, ask your stylist to add some subtle highlights into your new look.
You know the reason we all go grey? To keep it as simple as possible, grey hair represents the loss of pigmentation within the hair shaft. The hair strand often becomes wiry as it is sheathed in more cuticle than most other hair types. How good you look with grey hair is determined by its texture, plus how it goes with the tone of your skin and eyes, so regardless of your colour changes, the condition of your hair is the most important thing to look after. Greying hair is the start of a natural lightening process to which you should adapt the colors of your clothes and makeup, embrace it!!
