I am 22 and born with really thick black wavy hair. I permanently straightened my hair twice in 2 years now and now the hair has started to grow back as expected. I always had my hair tied in a pony tail all my life mainly because of the thickness and the puffy look. I am really looking for a change of style something to break the pony style and preferably one I could leave my hair open. Could you please suggest a good cut that could thin the hair at the crown of the head but at the same time, a thinning that would; not look like a "rats tail"!

Your hair sounds gorgeous.
I would recommend a razor cut called internal diffusion. This technique put internal layers inside your hair cut. Not only will this remove some of your bulk making it easier to dry but it would also make your hair much more manageable and not like "rats tails". Ensure you go to an experienced stylist that is adapt at razoring techniques.

At 55 my coarse hair is now limp and unmanageable but just as thick. Even my daughter who is a Hairdresser cannot do anything with it. Can you suggest anything?
|Answered By: |
I would suggest (if you have not already tried) firstly investing in an intensive conditioning treatment at least every fortnight to try and reduce the coarseness. ...More >
Secondly perhaps try having your hair thinned out with either thinning scissors or a feather blade. This will help reduce the thickness in your hair but at the same time retaining the style and length.
Hope this helps.

My problem started when I used Nioxin shampoo/conditioner/ follicle booster. I used these products a little more than a month. Suddenly I had an allergic reaction my scalp was very sensitive, in addition to using these products; I also used their root lifter volumizer. After that application thatís when the reaction occurred. To calm my scalp, I used Dr. Miracles edges and nape balm which resulted in thinning. To counter all this, I used rosemary oil to try and stimulate hair growth. My derm prescribed clobetasol propionate. This calmed it down and my hair seemed to be doing fine because the shedding seemed to stop. Now, on some areas of my head I can see my scalp. My hair used to be very thick and long. When I shampoo my hair, my scalp still feels irritated and tight my dermatologist said that I had no follicle damage and in time my hair will grow back. I am depressed and scared that my hair will never grow back. Do you think my follicles are damaged and does an irritated scalp mean that my follicles have been damaged? I tried the jojoba oil but it did not help. Please help, totally stressed out!

Based on what your derm said I would say that your follicles are not damaged and getting stressed out will only make matters worse. What you need to do is make sure that you are eating a healthy balanced diet. Plenty of protein and omegas. A high dose of B Complex will also help. Make sure you get these from a good health food store. Do not purchase cheap drug store brands as these are not sufficient.
Try no to stress, aromatherapy help. Take warm baths and use some lavender oil or clary sage.
