What is the best way to straighten hair?
|Answered By: |
Your hair needs to be completely dry and preferable smoothed out with a hairdryer and brush. Then take two inch sections of your hair and apply a heat protective product by spraying 15cm away from the hair and distributing evenly. Starting at the roots, bring your hair-straightener through to the ends. Ensure that the straightener is always moving to avoid burning the hair. When you get to the ends, slightly bend your wrist downwards so the ends slightly curl underneath to give them some shape. You should also try to avoid straightening your fringe with straighteners and instead use a hairdryer and brush. If you do use your straighteners, only straighten the ends and ensure you slightly curl the ends down as well. If after you have straightened your hair, there are flyaway hairs, apply a light serum to tame them.

Iíve had problems with hair growth for a few years, however just over a year ago I decided to have my hair cut into a long bob because my hair had become a bit tatty. I didnít like it so decided to grow it out, and within a year I had grown it back relatively to the length it was before (around shoulder blade length). However, in the past couple of months my hair has become extremely dry on the ends, with white dots, breakages and split ends. Iíve rarely straightened and only around twice blow dried my hair since I decided to grow out my bob, and it seems to have stopped growing. I also get greasy hair, and dandruff, so Iím stuck on which shampoo to use! Iíve been using Herbal Essences the one for dry/damaged hair but itís had no effect, and I have been using a treatment for my ends once a week. After these didnít work I had it cut but the white dots and breakages seemed to appear again really quickly. I also have my hair highlighted with bleach and caramel, but only get it done around once every 3 months, so didnít think that was causing it, as I have had it dyed like that for the past few years. Please help!

The main issue here is your choice of products. Using anything not purchased at a salon is really doing your hair no favours. High-street brands can create a false sense of condition to your hair. It leaves a residue that builds up over time and drips down the hair to create the white dots you mention. When growing your hair, condition is massively important otherwise it grows from the roots and breaks and the end so you get nowhere. What I would suggest is go to your salon, get a few inches taken off and invest in some decent salon shampoo and conditioner. Initially it is more expensive than non-professional products but you will use less with each shampoo, so overall it works out about the same. Ask your pals or family for a conditioning mask for Christmas or your birthday and use this once a week. Also, make sure you drink lots of water Ė like your skin, hair needs to be kept hydrated. Once you have the split ends cut off and got the condition sorted, the hair will grow fuller and look and feel much healthier.

I used to have long hair, after I had surgery I lost a lot of blood and my hair to, I have tried simply everything to make it thick and grow, but I end up loosing more hair, what do I do?

Hair Loss can be due to a number of things stress being a major one, if your body is still under stress and you are using particular drugs this could have an adverse effect on hair growth. I would suggest at this minute you move away from wanting it long and thick again, work with what you have naturally. Aim to get a style you really like within the current length and then allow it to naturally grow. Donít force the issue, this can make it worse. There are supplements out there but they donít work for everybody.
