Questions and Answers
Question: I color my hair at home and visit the salon when I can. How can I keep my color vibrant in between visits to my hairstylist?
WILD BILL SAYS: A good color shampoo is ideal for in between visits. This will slow down color fading by depositing color into your hair. Always use a "color-safe" shampoo and conditioner (sulfate free). This will help maintain the richness and vibrancy of your color.
Question: I need volume in my hair. What can I do?
WILD BILL SAYS: Always use a good volume shampoo and conditioner that doesn't weigh the hair down. Follow up by using a root boost spray prior to blow drying. I recommend Redkin Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam.
Question: Should I shampoo my hair everyday?
WILD BILL SAYS: It depends.. If your hair is oily and flat, it's a good idea to cleanse hair with a daily shampoo. If your hair is dry, you could skip a day. Whatever it may be, use your best judgement - Listen to your hair!
Question: I have curly hair and I've always wanted straight hair.
I've heard about chemical straighteners.
WILD BILL SAYS: Yes, this service can be quite expensive and potentially damaging on the hair, so seek out a professional with adequate knowledge regarding chemical straighteners. NOTE: If your hair is dry and brittle, I would NOT recommend this service!
Question: I want to get a permanent wave in my hair and color at the same time... suggestions?
WILD BILL SAYS: Yes, always perm first then color. The reason is if you color first, the harsh chemicals and solutions used in permanent waving will strip the color from your hair. I recommend waiting 24 hours after your perm before coloring your hair.
Question: I just got a hair cut and it's not exactly what I wanted.
It's a little uneven on one side. What can I do?
WILD BILL SAYS: I recommend calling the hairstylist and letting them know your concerns. Most hairstylists would rather have the opportunity to remedy and situation than to have an unhappy client walking the streets. If this is not an option, find a new hairstylist that you are comfortable with.
Question: My hair always seems dry more so on those hot and humid days.
What can I use to combat my unruly hair?
WILD BILL SAYS: Use a good hydrating shampoo and conditioner. I recommend TIGI'S Control Freak shampoo and conditioner #1. Note: A good leave in (blow dry and iron safe) conditioner is ideal for those extra humid days.
Question: I swim a lot and take certain medications.
How can I remove the build-up of the chlorine and other minerals in my hair?
WILD BILL SAYS: A good purify shampoo and conditioner is ideal for removing these unwanted build-ups. I recommend Pureology Purify and follow up with Pureology's Reconstruct and Repair Conditioner. Get rid of that stuff with this: 100% Vegan Purifier.
Question: What's a good shampoo for my children?
WILD BILL SAYS: Keep it simple silly! (KISS) your kids with a daily shampoo and conditioner suitable for the condition of their hair. Professional (salon care) products are always a good idea. Try Enjoy's professional line.
Question: I dyed my hair too dark. What should I do?
WILD BILL SAYS: Uh oh! That's not fun! Hair color really takes hold of the cuticle in the first 48 to 72 hours of the process, so if your home dye job is more than three days old, go to a salon.
Question: I can't blow-dry my hair without frizz. Help!
WILD BILL SAYS: There's a magical piece of equipment out there called a diffuser. If you have frizzy hair, you need to have one. Apply an anti-frizz product before blow-drying, and don't hold the diffuser too close to your head.
Finally, don't ever comb your hair during or after blow drying.
Question: How do I keep colored hair healthy?
WILD BILL SAYS: If only there were one simple answer! Well, actually, there is: Use a deep conditioner at least once a month and invest in shampoos and conditioners formulated for colored hair. It's generic advice, but it works well for everyone, whether you've got lowlights, highlights or use permanent dyes.
Question: I see a lot of hair in my brush and in the shower. Am I thinning?
WILD BILL SAYS: The good news is, no, you are probably not losing more than the average amount of hair every day in the shower. But there's also some bad news: After age 20, you're going to shed anywhere from 40 to 100 hairs a day. If you've been blessed with thick hair, you may not even notice an appreciable difference until much later in life. If you've got thin hair, you may observe a slight loss around the sides and crown, but again, it shouldn't be extreme.
Question: What is the best way to touch up my grey roots?
WILD BILL SAYS: Depending on where you are on the Grey spectrum (a few strands or nearly a whole head) you
can do this at home or go to a salon. Women with a lot of stubborn Grey (more than 40 percent) would do better with professional help for permanent color. If you find a home coloring system made for covering Grey,
you can do that at home following the directions.
Just make sure to do a strand test first -- you need to see how well your hair takes the color.
Question: Dandruff Shampoo Ruins My Hair. What Can I use?
WILD BILL SAYS: Search for the mildest dandruff shampoo you can find and see how it affects the flaking. Sometimes it's not strong enough to make a difference but it's better for your hair -- then you have to choose between some flaking and great hair or no flaking and flat hair. Head & Shoulders dandruff shampoo has been around for ages and now comes in mild- and ultra-strength versions, as do many other brands.
