Try introducing a colour to your hair to reduce the grey first as this should help thicken up your hair a little.

Carrie asks:
I have been on Thyroxine for 4 years, my hair used to be so thick and it is now getting very thin mainly on the top it is really getting me down.

Sorry to hear that you hair seems to be thinning at the moment. One thing we do know for sure is that ones hair has always been a good indication of ones overall health issues. Also with Thyroxine you would normally be doing regular blood tests through your doctor (a couple of times a year or so) to check on things to see how you are doing on the medication and also to check the dosage is right for you. You are most probably feeling fatigue with the medication; but my suggestion would be consult with your doctor to check dosage and if they see a relationship to your overall health and hair situation. We tend to sit back and try to deal with things ourselves as we "donít want to bother the doctor"....Well bother the doctor!! Thatís what theyíre there for. Even if itís just for piece of mind.

Good luck with everything

Jessica asks:
I have always had light blonde highlights and over the past few months have also had a base break so my roots are lighter. My hair is naturally curly and just below my shoulders. The last time I got my hair done she cut and coloured it. My stylist put some shorter layers in it as that is what I requested. She styled it straight and then used a thinning shear all over. I donít have really thick hair at all and was upset she used it. Now it feels a lot thinner and I feel like my curl is not as defined as it was. How long does it take for your hair to recover after a stylist uses the thinning shears? Does it damage your hair? How can I fix the damage? I should have asked her why she was doing that but I assumed she knew what she was doing. She knows I have curly hair and usually I wear it curly... So Iím not sure why she did that!

There is good and bad in every profession and I think you have just experienced the later. NOT TO WORRY. I would not EVER recommend using thinners for someone who styles their hair curly. This definitely reduces the curl result and definition. The stylist probably thinned the ends to remove the cutting lines that were visible after having your layered when dried straight. ...More >

I would recommend having a weave cut. By this I actually mean sections of your hair been taken as if to colour it when having weave highlights. Then each of the "weave" pieces in each section are cut at different lengths with scissors. This will thicken your thinned ends that have been put in previously.

It is really difficult and I can understand your frustration but when you have long curly hair the last think you want is normal layers introducing or your ends thinned.

The weave cut will help remedy some of your problem depending how far up your hair they went while thinning.
