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.





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.







Pippa asks:
I really hate my hair at the moment and I would love a short style. My hair is medium brown and quite long, I have a small face and freckles and I want to try and go blond, everyone says it wont suit me because of my freckles, so I was wondering what an expert would suggest, please help!

A professional Colour Technician would assess your skin tone and suitability during your consultation and this will guide you in regards to going light or dark. Having freckles does not affect your suitability to being blonde, however it is important that your complexion is taken into account to ensure your hair colour compliments your colouring. Donít feel limited by certain facial features- if you want a certain colour, you can have this. A good Colour Technician will find the correct shade for you.
