Hi, Thanks for reading my question. First I have straightened my hair for around 3/4 years daily as it was frizzy but it has now began to fall out and has gone really short. I have tried all sorts of treatments such as hair masks and deep conditioning as well as hair shampoos and conditioners such as John frieda and Garnier Blends targeting dry and frizzy hair which hasnít worked. Last week I went to get a Brazilian blowdry which was said to make my hair more manageable, where less heat would have to be used on my hair so I could give it a chance to grow, however this hasnít worked. I cannot go without straightening my hair at all as it is far too frizzy, however, by straightening my hair is falling out and I no longer know what to do. Any suggestions ? Many thanks

It sounds like a Brazilian Blowdry, also known as Brazilian Keratin treatment, would be perfect for your hair to save you from having to over blow dry and over straighten your hair, but there are two issues that come to mind. Firstly, the newer Keratin treatments work by injecting natural proteins into the hair, but itís vital with these treatments to respect the moisture/protein balance. If your hair is really dehydrated and the hairdresser has not infused moisture in before or during the treatment, then you may not be receiving the benefits youíre expecting. A quick and easy fix may be all that is needed, try adding high-quality moisturising ingredients which could possibly restore the moisture/protein balance. Moisture Mask by KeraStraight (rrp £26.50) contains Palmeira Tucuma and Carob Bean Extracts to add moisture without weight. Alternatively you could visit a KeraStraight salon and have an in-salon Intense Boost treatment which is a 30-day treatment that repairs, strengthens and hydrates; this would not straighten your hair, but could rebalance your hair and bring out the benefits of your previous Brazilain Treatment. Secondly, like all products, thereís a huge choice out there and thereís a great deal of difference between the best and the not so great. The second option, if you believe that your previous treatment just hasnít worked, is to wait 30 days and have a KeraStraight Ultimate Treatment, which is a 4-month straightening and repairing treatment. Ultimate is the most advanced Keratin treatment that feeds multiple proteins deep into the hair and realigns the shape of the hair for up to 4 months. None of these treatments are recommended as wash and leave, but more to minimise the time and effort needed and also to rejuvenate the hair so the little time and heat required is not harmful to your hair in any way and you have the added benefit of KeraStraight delivering fantastic anti-humidity benefits. You can find your nearest KeraStraight salon from the Salon Locator.

I would like to have a professional advice as to the best colour length, etc. for my hair. I have gone to many stylist praying one will have the skill needed but to date have had no luck. I am 62 years of age and by day a juvenile probation officer and by the end of the week worn and tattered. Just looking for a lift to keep me on this mission smiling.
Thank you and look forward to hearing from you

I suggest having a consultation in as many salons as necessary until you find the hairdresser who understands your needs and suggests a look that excites you. Although long hair that can be tied up can be convenient with your job, it will take more work and if your time is short and energy low at the end of the week, then something a bit shorter, above shoulders, maybe just the tonic. A quick, easy to manage hairstyle can do wonders to make us fill refreshed and ready to face the world.

I have been going to the hairdressers for a few years, to get blonde balayage on the ends of my hair which is what I had until recently. But a few days ago I decided to go darker and bought a Loreal at home dye that washes out after 8 weeks, however, it turned out way too dark and being impatient, I bought ColourB4 hair colour remover and applied this the next day. Now my hair has reverted to almost my natural brown but with a very strong reddish tint :( how can I get my balayage back? How soon is too soon to go to a hairdresser and ask them to fix it using permanent dye? I have heard if you use permanent dye too soon after ColourB4 this can revert your hair to very dark, however I donít know if this applies to me since I only used a temporary at home dye. Please help!

Thereís a general rule which is tint will not lift tint, so to get back to your lightened balyage you will need to have your hair bleached. Often the wash-out colours still contain a second ingredient that has to be mixed in, this is an activator that means this is still a chemical colour. Previously this may have been an issue with so many chemical processes on your hair in a short period of time, but with the technology in salons these days such as products like INNNOluxe, which rebuilds the hair during the colouring process, hairdressers can achieve more than ever. What is possible in one visit will always depend on the condition of your hair and your hairdresser should advise you exactly what they do for you during the consultation.
