Naomi asks:
I have extremely thick, shoulder length hair which is wavy. Whenever I go out somewhere I straighten it but would love to try it curly instead. I have tried to curl it using a curl cream, tongs, etc. but it just always looks messy! I would like to have loose curls throughout my hair can you help me achieve this please!! Also, whenever I leave my hair to dry naturally my scalp itches; do you know what could be causing this?

The best tip for maintaining stunning curly locks is to reduce straightening as this will only weaken your natural curl. To motivate your curls, visit your stylist and ask for a technique called twist-cutting which will extract some weight whilst increasing movement. In regards to styling, use products which will help you achieve your desired look for example conditioners such as Sebastians Potion 9 Ė an ideal product to nourish your hair and help lock in your curls. Following this, take small sections and twist them using your hands, alternating the direction of the twist between each section. Leave to dry naturally or defuse to secure the look.

Your itchy scalp could be a result of the wrong shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Alternatively, a common problem with thicker hair is that whilst washing your hair, the shampoo and conditioner is not thoroughly washed out, causing itchiness and irritation to the scalp.





Vicky asks:
I have JUST turned 17, and over the past 7 or 8 months I have noticed that I have loads of grey hairs scattered around my hair. As more and more people point them out it is becoming more and more important to do something about them. I have never coloured my hair before, and I was wondering if you could advise me on any shampoos on the market to help greys or help me with the best home colouring kit, brand etc. to use, I don't want to pay loads for the colour but I still want it to be affective and natural looking. Thank you for any advice you can give me. p.s Do not suppose anyone might know what could be causing this premature greying?

Grey hair is caused by loss of pigment which can be resultant of strong medication, shock or pregnancy to name but a few reasons. Having an all over tint would eliminate any grey, but might cause a more distinct grey re-growth. Opting for some lighter streaks might help to blend the grey and give a more natural look without heavy roots. Visit your nearest salon for a consultation and discuss booking in on a model night for a more economical option. Always avoid home colouring as a box colour will not guarantee the right results and can heavenly worsen condition.







Angie asks:
I have bleached and used hi-lift tints several times in the past 2 weeks. Prior to the last application I applied a protein treatment. My hair is not breaking but now my hair is excessively sticky and greasy. Is it product build up or extremely damaged hair?

The most likely is cause of your excessively greasy and sticky hair is that the treatment you have used is too heavy for your hair and as a result, the product has overloaded the hair and made it feel this way. This can be easily removed by shampooing your hair and using a normal conditioner.
