Jo asks:
I use to have naturally wavy hair, but over the years due to diffusing it, it has become curly. After 15 years of the same style I decided to have my hair permanently straightened. I didnít want poker straight hair, more a loose curl. My hairdresser said that she would only leave the treatment on for a short period of time instead of the 30 minutes she would normally do. When she came to cut my hair it was poker straight and she was shocked, she informed me that it would drop out but could take up to 5 months. She did only charge me half of the normal cost as I had not got what I wanted. It is now nearly 4 months since I had my treatment and there are not any real signs of any of my curls coming back. Is there anything I can do? I canít stop straightening my hair as I cannot come to work looking messy.

Sorry thereís not much you can do, the hair was relaxed too much, you can relax a curl for more control but your hair structures gone past that eg straightened too much. You either have to continue to straighten the regrowth so it matches the rest of the hair, this requires commitment, regular visits to the salon, and cost too. Or painful grow the hair out, wavy root area, straight ends. And then cut the hair much shorter and be done with it. Once the hair is straightened itís irreversible but you might consider real hair extensions if your hair can take them in the meantime.

Bunni asks:
I have crazy mixed hair, that I just canít tame no matter what I do! Iíve gone to salons for help but even they groan when it comes to blow drying or straightening my hair. Iíve put eggs and mayo in my hair, olive oil, different conditioners, and nothing seems to help at all. I just want my curls to be more relaxed and neat looking as opposed to this messy, puffy mess I was cursed with.

Use a good moisturizing shampoo and treatment conditioner to help with the condition of your hair. Also humidity is obviously getting into your hair either that or you are not drying your hair completely before straightening, which will cause your hair to revert to frizz. Make sure that you use a good non chemical hair relaxer such as Razzamatazz strait time, comb it through to make your hair smooth and then dry this in thoroughly before using flat irons. Your hair will dry faster than usual when using this product. Once your hair is dry use a serum such as razzamatazz glitz to keep out humidity.

Brenda asks:
I am soon to be 52. I color my hair brown, it is naturally wavy, bangs and length is at my shoulder, no layers. My hair is also oily so I wash every day and I style it with a hairdryer that has the brush attached to straighten it. It has changed in the last few years and it is thinner on top than it was. What style would you recommend (I have a square jaw). I want to get the right length I currently use Tresemme hair products for volume. Do you recommend any layers on top?

I would certainly recommend having some layers put through as this will create a lot more volume and give the appearance of thicker hair. It will also make you feel like youíve had a style change but without losing too much of the length which is important to keep if you have a square jaw.
