It seems to me that your hair has come under a lot of stress lately and the hair follicles have not had time to heal or rejuvenate. In this instance I would suggest you make an appointment to see a Trichologist. They might be able to examine your scalp and give you something to help stimulate new stronger hair growth. It would also be worth looking at your diet and taking some supplements which target the cells that generate healthy hair and nail growth such as Zinc and the vitamins B complex. Emotionally stressing about your hair can also continue the cycle of hair thinning or loss. Generally I have found that if a clients hair looks and feels good, this has an impact on their self esteem. I would recommend a hair enhancement procedure called hook and latch. This system does not use any bonds or threads and can help add body to your hair. There are not many consultants trained to offer this technique, you could visit our website to preview our consultants who have done the 12 module hair extension techniques. They can offer this technique. In the mean time I hope your hair starts to improve.

Catherine asks:
I have curly and frizzy hair and was told after washing to apply conditioner to my hair and leave it to dry naturally. I did this and it is still rather frizzy any ideas? Also I want a decent style but cannot find any as my hair is curly and shoulder length. Do you have any ideas on a style? My face shape is pretty oval but I have a jaw and cheekbones which really stand out. Can you think of any style that would suit me?

Curly hair is naturally quite dry, which in turn can cause frizz. To tame your tresses you need a moisture injection, which would ideally come from an intensive conditioning treatment like my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment. If you still find your hair getting frizzy then try applying a serum to towel-dryed hair for added smoothness and shine. My Shine Head Balm will keep your tresses in shape and keep flyaway under control to fight the dreaded frizz! As for styling, choppy layers (and plenty of them!) are a perfect way to add body and texture to curly locks, without having to lose too much of the overall length

Lynn asks:
I have fine past the shoulders (long hair) it is layered with bangs and it is fly-away. I have tried spraying my brush, using a spray conditioner and a regular conditioner, but to no avail. The conditioner weighs my hair down and I cannot get any body or fullness. It ends up looking like a wet poodle that used a straightening iron. I am a professional and I need help. I also want my hair to look thick and full. After everything, my hair is still fly away. I also have coloured or higlighted hair. Please help with an answer.

Even poodles get groomed from time to time and often end up displaying a lovely and sometime visually challenging style. Everyones hair can be managed it is just a case of finding out which products, method and daily care programme you need to apply each day or week to end up with the manicured look you want. Hair extensions can help if they are applied as hair enhancement to help add volume and texture to your own head of hair. It is very important to select the right type of extension method, one that will not damage your hair at the root especially on removal. It does not help to use too many different products or too many products at once, they may clash with each other and contribute to some of the problems you have described. Find a brand and use the items your need from that brand. If your hair is dry use a moisturising product, if your hair is greasy then use a product that will help this situation. We have consultants around the country, if you would like to discuss a hair enhancement program, please send us an email and we will direct you to the nearest consultant.

Finally, with the right help, you will achieve your overall objective.
