Marcus Francis - Global stylist TRESemme answers a few hair related queries

Marcus Francis

Recently, Marcus Francis- TRESemmé’s Global stylist was in India and I got the opportunity to ask him some common hair related queries. Would have loved to meet him and conduct the interview but since that was not possible, the lovely folks at TRESemme arranged for an e-interview. Read on to get some hair care tips from Marcus.

1. How to get rid of split ends?
Spilt ends are the most common problem. The reasons for split ends can be excessive use of styling products as they generate heat that takes away moisture from the hair and makes it dehydrated. It can also happen due to over shampooing. I suggest proper conditioning of hair from mid-length to (especially) lower tips. Proper conditioning also helps retain moisture and nourishment in hair making it soft and smooth. TRESemmé has really great range of conditioners which can help retain moisture in hair.

2. What’s the best hair style for a round face?
Round face looks fuller around the cheeks and one must choose hairstyles that can deflect the roundness of your face. Long hair with layering works best for a round face as it provides length to the face. Side swept bangs works well as it gathers attention more towards your eyes, deviating from face.

3. How to deal with hairfall and thinning hair?

For hairfall I suggest adequate conditioning of hair which will prevent hair from breakage. Use TRESemmé Hairfall defense shampoo and conditioner which prevents hair from breakage and gives moisture to hair and strengths it. Thinning hair happens because of hair loss and I suggest the use of TRESemmé Hairfall defense shampoo and conditioner.

4. Please suggest a regime for color treated hair? How to prevent fading of color?My take on permanent hair colour is – ‘if you are willing to experiment it’s a great thing.’ And to ensure it stays for long all you have to do is moisturize your hair. If your hair is color-treated and you are interested in keeping it fresh and vibrant, do not over shampoo your hair, use a little quantity and condition your hair well. Use can also use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth to treat your coloured hair and keep it healthy and shiny.

5. What's the best hair color for dark skin?
I think for Indian skin colour keeping variations of hair tones will work well. Having more warm and rich hair tones towards the ends will help retain healthiness around your hair and scalp. Also, one doesn't require frequent touch-ups.
