Alex asks:
I am a 16 year old boy with extremely wavy and thick hair. I regularly use a straightener but it requires great effort because of the thickness. If I don't wash my hair and just sleep on it while it is straight for a few days it can actually look good, but this option is kind of gross if I donít wash it for weeks. I don't know what to do?

I know what its like to have thick wavy hair as mine is the same?

What I would suggest are two options. The first is to have your hair thinned out by having it cut with either a feather blade (razor) or a pair of thinning scissors. Obviously you need to go to a reputable professional salon for this service and have a consultation first. ...More >

The other is to look at the option of having your hair chemically straightened. This will help keep your hair straighter and hopefully let you get the look you are after. As before make sure you go to a salon that specialises in this.

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?! Thank you!

Hair grows at a rate of on average quarter of an inch to half an inch each month; however 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. ...More >

To make sure that your hair is growing as much as it can- and staying attached to your head - you need to make sure you are protecting it and lavishing it with some TLC!

Get your hair into the best condition it can be so as well as using moisturising shampoo and conditioners, make sure you are giving hair that added extra by using treatments too.

Try my R U Taking Protection from hair that wonít grow past a certain length treatment (£6.99 from Boots) to give your hair that extra bit of nourishment.

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.

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 from Boots)

Your hair reflects the health of your body, so if you try to make sure you live a healthy lifestyle and do 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!

Adele asks:
I have shoulder length hair and its very thick so I bought thinning scissors but they ruined my hair and now I have lots of unwanted layers in my hair is it possible to get extensions to make all my hair the same length and can you tell me how much that would cost?

Cutting your own hair is a big mistake as you have found out. Introducing hair extensions will not resolve the problem so I feel they would be a waste of your money invested into rectifying the problem you have. ...More >

Visit a good professional salon near your home town and have a consultation, explain your problem and they should be able to resolve the situation you have at the moment.

Thinning scissors are a great tool to work with in the right hands and used in the correct way. As you have found out used wrongly they can cause many problems.
