Moutasim asks:
Hi, I was hoping you might help. As a male I have very unusual hair and Iím struggling to find anything to help style it. I would define my hair as thinning, frizzing, and wiry. My ethnic background is Arab. It might be easier if I send you a photo of my hair so you can see it for yourself. Can you recommend anything to help me control and style it? Presently the best thing I have come up with is using a good quality organic shampoo and conditioner and I then style my hair with castor oil. Strange I know. But for some reason I have found castor oil to be the most effective thing to help me style my hair as Iíd like to. Although it is not perfect and often gives my hair an overly greasy finish. Iím hoping to find something that works better than castor oil! Thank you.

Hi Moutasim, May I suggest you use a moisture shampoo and conditioner and make sure you comb the conditioner through before rinsing. This will help smooth the cuticle and help make the hair look less frizzy. Then use some oil preferably almond in a treatment mask weekly, this will help the inner structure of your hair. Eat as much oily fish and plenty of vitamin D & E as eating a very balanced diet does help the hair. Maybe try a mini straightening iron they are so good so helping control the frizz and smoothing the hair, then use a light wax. Good luck

Maya asks:
I once had my hair thinned out and was happy with the results, but now I want it thinner. If I get it thinned out again will my hair turn frizzy?

Having very thick hair thinned out Ė which is traditionally done by thinning out the lengths and ends with a razor or shears Ė is sometimes a great option for women who find their thick coarse hair very unmanageable, however, it isnít a decision to be taken lightly. Often the grass isnít always greener and trading in very thick hair for very fine hair can bring a whole new set of problems with it. For a start, the less volume in the hair, the harder it can be to rely on your natural texture, so adding any kind of wave or body to the hair can be tricky. Hair can end up looking fine, limp and lifeless and styling products that used to work on your hair can become too heavy, weighing the hair down.
The key is to seek out a professional who will help you achieve a balanced style and cut that retains enough weight and volume in the hair that it retains some natural texture and body, but without being so thick and unruly that it is tricky to style. Thinning shears are preferable over using a razor to thin the ends Ė this can leave the ends looking dry. However be aware that if your hair is naturally wavy, and texturizing shears are used, they can alter your hairís natural wave pattern, so you may notice your curls start to behave differently.
Your hair has now started to grow back in at the roots, which has resulted in your new roots being full of natural weight and thickness, while your thinned out ends remain thin. This has caused an imbalance between the ends and crown section, which is probably why you now wish to have the procedure carried out again. The problem is that thinning the hair can only take place through the ends Ė so when freshly grown thicker roots start to appear, there is an unavoidable contrast between the roots and ends. Instead of having your ends thinned again I would actually suggest opting for a blunter cut through the ends.
This will make the ends look thicker, however it should help to balance out the denser roots. Then ask your hairstylist to add internal layers to take away the heaviness and volume within the main body of the hair. This should give the appearance of lighter locks, but without contributing to the current contrast between the roots and ends that you are experiencing. It should also help to ensure that as your hair continues to grow out, you donít end up with even more of a discrepancy between the thickness in the ends and the body at the roots and should mean the effects of the cut last much longer.

Taylor asks:
HI! My hairdresser used thinning shears in my hair, which made it a lot thinner. I naturally have really thick Indian hair. She thinned it so much. She went close to the root, but not to close. I was wondering how long will it take to go back to my normal thickness. It has been about a year since this happened and my hair has not completely recovered. Will my hair go back to normal or stay like this forever? Thanks!

Hi Taylor, it will recover, it just takes a long time. I suggest you have the length of your hair cut and that way it wonít be as obvious the difference in the length of the previously thinned hair. Perhaps also take a supplement the help the hair grow? Good luck
