Sarah McCann asks:
Please please help me, I have blonde chin length bob, it is fine and very flyaway but also dry at the ends, I have to wash it and use straighteners every day or I couldn’t leave the house! Can you tell me what shampoo and conditioner I should be using as I need volume but also for dry hair and what products I should be using before I style my hair, also what temp should I be using my straighteners at and are the GHDs the best...thanks thanks thanks

It seems to me that your hair is feeling the effects of heat styling from using hair straighteners every day. I would suggest using a shampoo and conditioner that is going to help re-hydrate your hair and help it to stay naturally straight and healthy so then you will find you don’t need to use the straighteners as much. In the long run this will mean your hair will be in better condition and will even give more natural volume. I suggest trying my Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner available in Boots stores. It will really help to tame any fly aways whilst at the same time the P2Fifty Complex within the formulation helps to prevent hair from excessive heat damage. If you have dry ends I was also advise you to use an intensive treatment once or twice a week to ensure you are conditioning your hair to the max and locking in lots of moisture. Hair technology has moved on a lot and now you can get straighteners which have titanium plates rather than ceramic which gives better results faster so you not only save time but cause less damage to your hair too. Maybe have a look online at some brands that offer this and check out My Poker Straight Super Hero Straighteners which offer the latest titanium technology plates. Remember to always protect your hair with protection mist before styling too!

Mary asks:
I hope you can help- my hair is very static. I have even recently stopped using conditioner hoping that would help but my hair still remains static!!

When an insulator like a plastic comb is rubbed against something like your hair tiny particles called electrons are either added to or taken away from the insulator. ...More >

The comb and the hair get charged with opposite electrons; either positive + or negative

When every strand of your hair has the same charge it feels tingly and makes your hair stands up. The hair is charged with the same electron and tries to move away from that charge.

Braniac talk over! The dryer your hair is, the more static it will be, so you need to make sure your hair is super moisturised. By stopping using conditioner you are actually probably just adding to the problem!

Try using an intensive conditioner and after styling mist your hair with my Poker Straight Dehumidifier which should sort out the static leaving hair shiny soft and manageable

Char asks:
I have wore my hair up in a ponytail for years now and my hair is starting to go much thinner at the front and it is starting to make me look like I have bald patches because of where I wear it up so tight so what should I do to get my hair to grow back thicker there? People have said to wear my hair down but I do not want to because I like it up so should I just wear it looser or something?

Always refrain from tying your hair back so harshly, (especially when wet) as this causes damage to hair follicles around the hairline. If you only feel comfortable with your hair back, try changing the way you tie it. This way you are not constantly damaging the same hairs which will lead to breakage. Another tip is using a head band as this will cause less tension to your hair. You need to put the condition back into your hair, try using Hot Shots Volume Detox (RRP £6.99) this treatment shampoo in a shot is specially formulated to encourage circulation around the hair follicle to increase uptake of the nutrients and to boost hair body, volume and texture. A side sweeping fringe will give the appearance of thicker hair and a change of parting will disguise the look of any bald patches. I would strongly recommend a restyle, as if your hair was easier to manage you may not be so tempted to tie it back this will also make your hair around the hairline stronger whist encouraging new growth. However if you insist in having your hair tied back a great new way of doing so is to create a messy knot. This is a softer style so your hair is not so severely pulled back and will be less damaging.
• Take the top section of hair (half up) and fix into place with a snag free band
• Take small sections of the hair underneath and loosely pin around the existing ponytail
• This creates a messy pinned in pony that is edgy and glam.
