Laura asks:
Iíve got dark blonde/light brown hair with natural highlights I like the colour but my hair is thick, under bust length with long layers that Iím trying to grow out as they just added more volume. (If I go too short I look like a triangle) I was hoping you could give me some advice on what style to get as my hair has just too much volume even after blow drying and straightening with good straighteners and this straightening gum I bought from Toni&Guy! Iíve also tried thinning but it didnít really make any difference. The texture of my hair is strange Iíve got two types of hair in one on top my hair tends to be smooth and fairly straight while underneath some of my hair it thicker and has zig-zaggy shafts and has got a natural wave but not nice enough to make good curls. I also bought that Boots home chemical straightening kit in shear desperation as I really need a change! But it wouldnít straighten the test strand even after the max time so I didnít use it! Is my hair just destined to by a huge wave mess or is there something that I could do without spending hours every day.

It sounds like youíve tried almost everything!

The one thing that might work is to have your hair razor thinned. This sounds drastic, but is basically a technique to help reduce the thickness in your hair. ...More >

Obviously you will still need to spend time on your hair but hopefully it will be easier for you.

Jon asks:
I'm thinking about getting hair extensions, what is the minimum required hair length for me to have this done? (Male with short hair. Also, would there be anywhere in the Leamington spa area that you would recommend to get them done?

In order to get coverage of the hair extensions, I recommend that your hair length should be no shorter than 3 inches. It could be done shorter, but visibility might be a problem. ...More >

It would also depend on your hair type and style and what you wanted to achieve with your hair extensions, length, volume, highlights or a new look.

There are over 14 different techniques but for short hair I would recommend the mirco ring track. This involves using cold bond and micro rings for a smooth flat and undetectable look.

If you are looking to enhance thinning hair on the top of your head, then I recommend you look at one of the newer techniques, the lace systems.

TeMac asks:
I have medium length curly hair that never seems to grow. It grows somewhat on the sides, but the back just seems to keep thinning at the ends. Can you please tell me what I can do to make my hair grow?!

Hair grows at a rate of an average quarter of an inch to half an inch each month; however itís important to realize that that depends on factors such as diet and lifestyle. Also, hair that is treated harshly can break off making it difficult to achieve the length you desire. To make sure that your hair is growing as much as it can - and staying attached to your head! Ė You need to make sure you are protecting it and lavishing it with lots of TLC! ...More >

Use moisturising shampoo and conditioners, such as my Poker Straight Shampoo with P2Fifty, (£4.49 for 250ml) followed by my SofLee SofLee Intense Conditioner, (£5.99 for 200ml).

Use treatments in between visits to the salon; my R U Taking Protection from hair that wonít grow past a certain length treatment (£6.99 for 200ml) will give your hair that extra love and attention it needs.

Washing your hair too much can strip it of all its natural, essential oils and so Iíd recommend trying washing your hair every 2-3 days to see if this helps.

However, even if you are desperate for your hair to grow, you should still continue to get it trimmed every six to eight weeks. Even just an eighth of an inch should banish split ends getting rid of the thinning you mention at the ends.

As well as making sure you stay up to date with your trims, try my R U Taking Protection from split ends serum (£6.99 for 50ml). Your hair reflects the health of your body, so if you try to make sure you live a healthy lifestyle and do some exercise, you should notice a difference in the health of your hair.

Take all of these tips into consideration and get ready to grow, grow, grow!
