Hannah asks:
I am white British, but my hair resembles an afro, but blonde. I would like it to be curly, but it is straight/marginally wavy, with some curls at the back, and instead of lying flat, it sticks up in a spherical ’gravity-defying’ shape, even though it is nearly five inches long. It isn’t frizzy, but I can’t make it lie flat and it gets incredibly dry very easily. I would like it to be more curly, and less unruly, and want to stop it from sticking up in all directions but don’t quite know how to go about it (it can become very tangled and difficult to keep knot-free). How would I best go about making it curlier, and solving the problem of it standing on end?

Curly hair has a tendency to be dry and brittle, and as you know, very hard to control. Curly hair needs moisture so make sure you use products that lock in the moisture, but are light enough to keep curls bouncy. Try using a moisture shampoo and conditioner like my Lee Stafford Climate Control Shampoo and Conditioner, which are light but help to lock in the moisture and create and an ‘umbrella’ to shield hair from humidity and dry weather conditions. ...More >

Before blow drying hair smooth my Climate Control Serum from the root to the tip, massaging it into the hair ends. This super hero serum melts into the hair, nourishing from root to tip and will keep hair in check, beautiful, silky and smooth. Repeat when hair is dry in case you need more of a moisture boost.

Always use a cool or medium heat on your hairdryer as well as a diffuser pointed downwards to keep curls look defined. Otherwise if you use a thin nozzle and a high heat hair will look dry and frazzled! Also, never brush curly hair while you are drying it as this will break up the definition of the curl and cause major frizz and zero shine. A quick and easy tip – wind hair around fingers to keep it in a spiral, and you can repeat this throughout the day.

It is also worth doing a deep conditioning treatment 2/3 times a week to get your hair feeling supple and soft again. Try my Lee Stafford Hot Shots which are self warming treatment shots with pro repair formula to strengthen, replenish and restore hairs moisture balance and will keep your hair tangle free.

When you have time, using tongs is the fool proof way of getting fabulous curls. Try using my Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Styling Iron. It has curved plate edges so will create smooth, silky curls in a flash.

Louise asks:
I have dark blonde fine hair and an oval/long face. What style would best suit? I seem to spend my life asking the hairdressers who just suggests the same thing. Long bob with bits cut around my face. I have had that since I was 11! I have a high forehead and my hair looks a bit thin at the scalp.

Just would love a style that looks chunky and fun!

It’s always hard to advice without seeing someone face to face but by the sounds of what you have described you could try having the back graduated and then sloping down at the sides. Then also have some long layers cut throughout to create a little body. This basically is a graduated layered bob, and I would also suggest keeping some form of fringe also.

Andrea asks:
2 years ago I had my son. Normally I have naturally curly hair but it has gone straight and thin. My hair is shoulder length. I would love to know what to do with it as I love my curls and want them back

There are a few ways to make hair glossy and curly but, because of your hair loss, you need to be particularly careful with your choice and I would definitely avoid having a harsh treatment like a perm. Racoon International’s hair extensions are proven to be gentle to hair - they can even be suitable for people who have lost their through medical treatment such as chemotherapy. The Racoon extension bonding is made using natural extracts and doesn’t damage your hair so it’s a brilliant way to have full bodied hair. The 100% human hair extensions can then be styled and curled as your own. Top hairdressers use them for wedding styles because they are so great at holding curl.
