S asks:
I have really thick hair but few months ago I got a Chinese hair cut, they tend to use sharp blades to add texture to the hair. However this looked really good to start with but now that it has grown out it has become really thin at the bottom. Now my hair is not thick anymore and I miss it, I do not no what to do should I cut it completely short to the thick layers or should I wait for it to grow back.

Basically they seemed to have used thinning scissors on you hair to reduce volume and thickness. Do not worry, its not necessary to cut it off and start again. What you need to do is to have at least 2 inches cut off the length and layers, with normal scissors not thinning scissors or a razor, to begin thickening the hair back to its former glory. You will feel better instantly, then leave it another 6 weeks and trim regularly. Your hair will look and feel thin and almost torn by having this type of cut, but take my advice and get yourself booked in next week.

Rachel asks:
I have very long frizzy-curly hair. It is neither curly nor straight so I have to style it which is really drying it out. Mousses and products used to curl it make it like straw and straightening splits the ends and this is really thinning my hair out. I need to know the best products to use as deep conditioning products leave my hair feeling greasy and flat but without it is frizzy!

It seems to me that you have to spend a lot of time and tremendous effort in styling your hair. You say your hair has a tendency to frizz and neither goes curly or straight. I am convinced that your hair length and cut is totally wrong for your hair. With the right cut, you should be able to wear your hair curly or straight with ease, and not have to fight with it like you do. I would find yourself a great hairdresser that understands your type of hair and get the cut right. Then you will have to re-assess the styling products after your new cut, as styling will be far easier and less stressful. You will still use curling, anti-frizzing products but will not have to use half the amount that you have been using to create a great finish on your hair. Treatments and conditioning products will not flatten your hair as before. So get your cut sorted out and the products will follow.

Beth asks:
I got some extensions put in (cornrows and stitched) now there is a definite line between where my hair ends and the extensions, they are lighter than my own hair. Will a cut help or can I colour the extensions?

It would seem that your technician did not colour match your hair correctly. This would result in the hair extension becoming noticeable. With regards to visually seeing where your hair ends because of a visible line, this is also due to your technician not blending the ends of your hair properly. When you have a blunt cut at the ends of your own hair, it is important that the ends are thinned to reduce that visible line. This does not mean that your hair has to be chopped into or much length taken of. Just some thinning scissors on the ends should be enough.
