Last week, we took to Twitter and asked you what your burning questions would be for haircare expert Jo Hansford, whose fantastic range you can shop on The Hut with free delivery.

We then picked our five favourite questions and put them to Jo – here’s what she had to say!

1) What are your top tips for keeping your colour-treated hair vibrant?


Always use a shampoo and conditioner that are specifically for coloured hair. They have the best ingredients to protect and prolong your colour. Our Expert Colour Care range contains Blue Lupin Peptides, scientifically proven to keep your hair colour fast for up to 30 washes. Also make sure you always look after you hair in the same way as you do your skin; keep it covered when out in the sun and use an intensive hair masque at least once a week to re-hydrate.

2) What products would you recommend for split ends?


Our Jo Hansford Intensive masque is the perfect product for nourishing dry split ends. We also offer an in-salon treatment – the Split End Solution – which uses keratin to seal the ends of your hair and fight split ends.

3) Do you have any quick tips to increase volume at the roots?


Start by using a volumising shampoo and conditioner, such as the Jo Hansford Volumising duo. To add volume at the roots, dry your hair in sections using a round brush, lifting from the roots. Velcro or heated rollers are another great and simple way to add volume and movement into fine hair, and backcombing is a really good way to get volume at the roots too.

4) My hair gets greasy quickly, do you have any tips or products to keep it cleaner for longer?


Dry shampoos are great for in-between washes and preventing the need to wash your hair every day. The Jo Hansford Leave-in Conditioner is super lightweight and perfect for using on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair to avoid having too much product at the roots whilst at the same time conditioning your hair at the ends.

5) I have ombré hair and my ends are starting to look slightly damaged – what would you recommend to keep both my crown and ends healthy?


When shampooing, massage the shampoo into the roots and rinse through to your ends so that you are not vigorously rubbing the damaged ends. Then, use the Jo Hansford Intensive Masque weekly masque and leave on for around 10 minutes to allow intense hydration. Be careful when rough drying your hair too, and give your hair a break from the heated appliances every now and then.
