Anita asks:
Over the last year I have been losing my hair I am only 24 years old and my hair is getting so thin that you can see my scalp. This is really upsetting as I used to have really thick hair. I donít know what to do haircut wise I have black hair mid length and itís really thin hair at the top. I just want my hair to look thicker on top and look normal. But donít know what hairstyle I need for this type of problem I have. Can you help?

There are many reasons that your hair is thinning - most of the reasons are diet, hormones or stress related. Go to any good chemist like Boots etc and buy Nourkrin extra strength - it is a supplement that needs to be taken daily - you will see a total difference within months. Next, you need to opt for a shorter style - bob length or slightly longer, as it sounds to me as if your hair is quite long. Going shorter will give the appearance of thicker hair.





E Jones asks:
I have naturally blonde red hair which is unusually fine and not very thick. It is poker straight and sits flat even after blow drying with volume boosters and using straighteners at the roots to provide lift - also wind moisture etc totally flattens it out again. I use to have a great hair stylist who managed to cut a shape into my hair which meant it didnít flatten within two hours (it lasted all day even in poor weather) and still held its shape when I went for my next eight week cut - however this stylist left the salon and they wonít tell me where she went! I have tried to explain to at least six different stylists at various country wide salons who charge a lot for a cut (which I am happy to pay if I get a good cut) that my hair needs shape cutting in - what term should I use. My old stylist use to "thin" my hair which gave more ummph - when I tell them this they use those texurising scissors on the layer ends which just makes it flyaway and this doesnít give any lift or volume. Also after two weeks itís sitting flat to my head again! Could you please tell me what technique I should be asking for - as the "senior" stylists I have come across appear to have a total lack of understanding/knowledge on how to cut my type of hair - I canít believe Iím the only one! My hair use to be jaw length and cut up into the back to provide bulk and we would alter the longish fringe to the side depending on the mood and or define layers around the face - as styles changed. I am getting really desperate as I am a 43 yr old who can not afford to look like a drowned rat or disaffected teenager! Please help!!

I wish I could tell you that this was the first time I have heard this, but it could not be further from the truth.

Under no circumstances let a stylist attack your hair with texturising/thinning shears, it will make your hair FLAT and FRIZZY. ...More >

You will definitely get the best results with a soft razoring technique "internal diffusion" which gives you soft supporting volume to prolong the volume and lift you need.

In all my years this is the only technique that truly works.

Please ensure you use a very experienced stylist competent in this technique, as in the wrong hands it will result in your hair been thinner and flatter.

Good luck

Hi Brenda,

Good to hear from you. ...More >

You really need to visit a Trichologist as the change in your hair could be due to a number of factors including hormones, genetics, the products you are using or possibly a medical condition.

A full consultation with a trichologist will help to identify what is changing and how you can manage it moving forward. If you need to find a trichologist, I am happy to recommend someone in your area via the Institute of Trichologists.

Best wishes,

Eva
