My hair is naturally curly but I always style it straight. I am going camping and won’t be able to take my straightener with me. Do you have any advice on how I can get it straight without using a hair straightener?
|Answered By: |
Before your trip, I suggest washing your hair with Redken Frizz Dismiss Shampoo and Conditioner for humidity protection and smoothing. I would then give it a good blow-dry and straighten. While you are away, use Redken Pillow Proof Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo. If you do need to wash your hair while you are away, then set your hair with large foam rollers. This method won’t result in super-straight hair, but the large rollers will get rid of small, frizzy curls and create gentle waves instead.

I have highlighted my hair and when I wash it it gets so tangled - what can I do?
|Answered By: |
It sounds to me like your hair has been left slightly dry and damaged – possibly by your highlights, which usually leads to tangling. Invest in a brush that is designed for use on hair that tangles easily, and regularly use a deep conditioning mask that’s enriched with keratin. This will help to inject some moisture into your hair, and to help coat the strands, so that the cuticle lies flat and sealed, which will help to prevent tangling. Comb hair while it is wet with a wide-toothed comb, and use a leave-in conditioner, serum or hair oil on damp strands, before drying. Again, this will help to restore damaged tresses to prevent further tangling. Finally, when you next visit your colourist, ask for a treatment such as Olaplex, as this will help to maintain the hair’s health, during the colouring process.

I’m planning on trying I-Tip extensions. The extensions are currently platinum blonde. My natural hair is neck length and has dark brown roots with blonde tips - it used to be ombre with my previous extensions. I want to create dark roots to silver tips: should I colour the I tip extensions first or should I put the extensions in and then colour all over?
Also, will the Keratin section of the extensions colour along with the hair, or will they remain the same colour?
|Answered By: |
Instead of colouring your extensions, I would start by choosing extensions in your desired shade. This takes away all the potential pitfalls of colouring extensions, as while good quality premium hair extensions, such as the Remy extensions in my own range, are made from natural hair fibres, they have still been treated and so colouring them won’t have the same effect and won’t be as simple as colouring your own hair. ...More >
If you are looking to try dark roots blending into silver ends, I would look for extensions that already feature an ombré effect, with colour that is the same as your natural colour at the top of the strands, that blends in to silver through the lengths. This way, you can let the extensions create the ombré effect, rather than waiting for your own roots to grow out. It also means that there won’t be a harsh colour contrast line around your crown, where the extensions begin, which would draw attention to where the extensions are inserted.
The keratin section, or ‘bonds’, at the top of your extension would remain the same colour if you were to dye the extensions, which is another reason why it is better to choose extensions in your desired colour, and in a shade where you can match the tips to the colour of your own roots, rather than trying to alter the colour of the extensions and bonds, once they’re already fitted in your hair.
