I have thick, coarse hair. Everyone loves it but I hate it, especially in the summer cuz it gets big and frizzy (also when its raining or just lots of humidity) What would you say for the best anti-frizz spray/serum or whatever?

haha win! I 'm getting bored of just plain dark black hair. I was trying to see if I could get it streaked or highlighted, but the problem is, I have no idea what colour i should choose to flatter my complexion etc. So do you have any suggestions? :O

john frieda is a great product, and shampoo and conditioner for coarse hai really will make a difference. It's a really tricky one to help but a good pair of straghtener like GHD's are always good.

I cant express enough how much you need to go into a good salon and have a consultation, dark afro carribean hair is really really difficult to lighten as its structure is very different to other hair. Go in and get a hair cutting taken and ask them to try a few products on it to asess how well it will respond to products.

Unfortunately, you may not have much of a choice in the end, it lmight just come down to what your hair will respond best to.

I think on dark hair caramel colours look better, keep it warm and not too light :)

I hope that helps some!! x

This is such a common one! lol.

If your hair is coloured dark, it will be very hard to lighten, but if its natural, try a cutting first to make sure the colour will come out how you want, get a half head high lights in a high light colour instead of bleach so they are subtle at first, this will also minimise the damage.

unfortunatly all colouring/bleaching will dry hair out but some TLC and conditioning treatments and you'll be fine!

Make sure you DEFINATELY want to do this and think about if you can afford to maintain it or correct it if you dont like the end result....

Hope this helps! :D x

Hmmm..... Is it died bown or natural??

No bleach is good for your hair unfortunatly, but some products come with added oils which, arguably, provide some protection.

But for a red colour you wont need to leave the bleach on very long, use 30vol (9%) MAX!! for this, and only lift until your hair goes orange, you DO NOT want it blonde or white!

The reason for this is that bleach strips the colour from your hair and the lighter you make it, the less pigment will be left for the red to hold on to and so it will fade REALLY quickly! (trust me im a red head!)

I'd take a day out to do this process, bleach in the morning, put on a rich deep conditioning treatment and leave it on for a while with a shower cap on to keep it warm, then in the afternoon do the red. You need to make sure the bleached hair is well conditioned or you may get a patchy result wh the red because drier pathces of hair will soke up more colour.

Good luck :D x
