NB Girl asks:
I read your "Hair Headlines: Wave of the Future" article posted online and have a couple of questions regarding the techniques you reviewed. I have an 11-year old daughter with sometimes challenging hair of a spongy, tight texture. Her edges are very thin (runs in the family) but the rest of her hair is thick and hard to manage more often than not. I have kept up a regime of washing, blow-drying, and pressing her hair for the past few years - and also keep it braided for 1-2 weeks at a time on occasion. Lately Iíve noticed that her hair has severely broken off in the back and continues to have split ends in that section despite trimming her ends. When looking at her pictures over the past couple of years, I also realize that her hair is much shorter overall and not just in the back. My concern is that the routine blow-drying and pressing have damaged her hair and led to the breaking. Thus, here are my questions:

Does a situation such as this ever warrant relaxing someoneís hair?

If done correctly, is it safe to get my daughterís hair relaxed using the ammonium thioglycolate or guanidine hydroxide? Where can I find such products?

Lastly, is the thermal ionic/bio ionic system safe for my daughterís hair? Iím interested in learning more about it, even for myself - where can I find additional information on this new technique?

I suggest getting a consultation at a salon and getting the salon to do all the necessary precautionary test

Strand test
etc ...More >

I do not suggest this system for your daughters hair it can make the hair much more delicate than it already is.

Jeffrey asks:
What do you think this guy does to get his hair the way it is? Is there a product you could recommend or just something to do to it. My hairís just a bit shorter than this.

He probably has it razored to give the texture. If you have this done then apply a soft styling cream and leave to dry naturally if your hair is straight or dry smooth first them apply product for texture and separation.

Jenn asks:
I have had my hairstylist colour my hair a dark chocolate brown, while waiting for the various shades of red that I coloured it before to grow it. Now I want to do some gradual lightening to a medium chocolate - should I have it high/low lighted or something else entirely? My hair is moderately dry from years of being coloured at the salon.

Remember your hair can only take so much, go in and have your stylist do a few test strands and see and feel how they are and then take it from there.
