Shauna asks:
I have long thin hair, what type of style will make my hair look thicker?

Diana DudasAnswered By:

Something without layers (or even maybe graduated). Do not leave it too long as this will make the hair look thinner. Use good body build products.

Alison asks:
Why is my hair not growing? I use straighteners but I do not use them all the time.

I have news for you. Almost every persons hair grows every day on any part of their body. All at different paces, some fine, some thick etc. It would seem like you are very focused on your hair each day and looking for visible signs of additional length. It takes approximately 6 weeks for your hair to grow between 1 cm 2 cm so any visible difference will take at least 6-9 months.

Using straighteners every day without proper protection can also damage the outer hair shaft which might slow down the growing process. There could also be a deficiency in minerals that help stimulate the hair follicles. Most of the chemists have minerals specifically designed for hair and nails. It will usually take about 6 months for you to see any real difference.

Kay asks:
I am currently on a hormone treatment called Zoladex to treat Endometriosis. When I have been on the treatment before I was not allowed to perm my hair either during or for about two months afterwards. I am 41 now and colour my hair frequently to hide grey. Can I still do this whilst I am on the treatment. I am into my fourth month of the treatment and have another three to go and my hair desperately needs colouring.

Although the risk of perming solutions and colouring agents entering your body and interfering with any drugs you are taking is very small it is still best to play it safe. If you want to colour your hair whilst on the drug treatment I would suggest that you use semi-permanant colours which will wash out over a period of a few weeks rather than a permanent tint. These types of colourings work in a completely different way and are much safer to use. If you are unsure which to use consult your hairdresser.
