Yemisi asks:
I have afro hair which grows well except that I have bruises when I make my hair. I had to cut it two years ago but have started Growing it now. The problem I see now is with the braids I find my frontal hair having white stuff at the roots and my scalp dry. When I had it cut I texturised and washed minimum twice a week and didnít experience any dryness. I donít want to have frontal hair loss. What do I do please?

Dry hair, a dry scalp, flaking scalp and dandruff are the result of one or more elements depleting your bodyís natural oils before they can reach your skin and hair. Getting back your healthy scalp and hair will likely mean making a change in your daily cosmetic regime, your diet and taking better steps to protect yourself from drying influences. In extreme cases, seeking professional help might also be an option. Here are some of the most common causes of dry hair and scalp: ...More >

Harmful chemicals found in cheap and over-used hair products over processing of hair and roots after chemical treatment Harmful cosmetic habits, like twenty minutes under the blow-dryer and curling iron overexposure to harsh weather, especially cold winter air braiding or corn rowing which is too tight and is constantly pulling on the hair root. Allergic to synthetic fibre which is used to cornrow hair a diet lacking in necessary vitamins dehydration not taking in enough fluids like water. An untreated skin condition, such as eczema, psoriasis, or seborrhoea dermatitis changes in your hormones which often change the way your hair and nails behave

I think the best way to begin is to examine the recent changes you have made which resulted in your scalp becoming dry and flaky. It would seem to me that your braids are also too tight which could result in traction alopecia.

Try to relieve any stress points on the hair, take in more liquids, and use a quality shampoo and conditioner and take some vitamins.

Dawn asks:
I go to the salon quite frequently to have a semi permanent colour on which is nearly black with a hint of red tone in it. Just before Xmas I had a streak of red under my hair on one side and a bit in my fringe and I was very happy with it but it started to fade after a week so during the New Year I bought a bright red permanent home colour kit to top it up and it looked great but in a recent trip to my salon I opted not to have the red done again but just my normal hair colour. After a week my hair colour faded out on the bit I had my red on previously and it looks really washed out now. What is the best thing to do now to cover the washed out red colour. Should I go back and have it done again or is it best to leave it to fade a bit more and then have it done again? Please help!

Personally I would go back to the salon to have the red covered. Unfortunately all red colours tend to fade and there is not a lot you can do to avoid this, other than investing in a high quality shampoo and conditioner specifically for coloured hair.

Becki asks:
My Hair is about shoulder length and I hate it this short. I wear clip in extensions but I hate wearing my hair just plain down. Are there any hairstyles that I could wear with my extensions in without showing the extension line? My hair is also very straight and will not curl. Not even with the best curlers. I have tried everything.

Unless your hair is thick and mid shoulder length and a little wavy you are going to have problems disguising your clip in extensions. Clip in extensions are really only a temporary hair cosmetic makeover. They are usually used to add extra volume and length for a special occasion. ...More >

I know that most girls find them cheaper and more convenient to use each day, but they do have limitations.

It would appear to me that you are looking for a much more versatile hair enhancement solution, especially as it look as though you like to change between having a straight look and curly look. I suggest you have a different hair extension technique applied that will give you more security, less track detection and the ability to style the extensions how you like. I recommend the Hook and latch or the Micro ring track techniques.

They are both flat to the touch and allows you a degree of flexibility. However all hair extensions come with a certain amount of limitations and how you prepare them and look after them will help to maintain the illusion of beautiful healthy hair.
