Matthew asks:
I have medium length hair it is very soft and when washed and dired goes very floppy. I have to use a lot of wax and gel to to it upright which makes it look unnatural and very greasy. What can I do to get nice and fluffy hair which looks appealing? Please help me.

I think the answer is that you need to have some layers cut into the style to create more body and hold. Also, try not to over condition the hair as this can make it soft and unmanageable - rather than using a rinse out conditioner, use a spray conditioner and see how that feels. Sometimes using a hairspray will give the hair the hold you need without actually weighing the hair down like a wax or putty can. Why not visit your hairdresser and ask for a consultation on what products they would recommend for your hair type? Unlike supermarkets or chemists, hairdressers are experts in their field and will gladly suggest the right products to achieve the look you desire.





Jean asks:
I am 62. Have short fine fair hair. Good condition now. No perm for 1 year but would like something gentle to make hair look thicker and easier to style. Also have fine highlights. What sort of perm would you recommend.

I think a root perm would be the best option this gives a bit of a kick at the roots which gives the hair body. Also try styling your hair different like changing the parting or direction you wear your hair. This can also effect how thick your hair can look. You would probably be best asking your hairdresser about the styles as she will be able to help you more.

Hairstyle suitable for really fine hair?

Ask your hairdresser for a chunky style - jaw/mid length is best as growing it longer can make it look spindly. Think Kirsten Dunst her fine hair always looks perfect. Or, you can go down the fake root with Racoon hair extensions as these are a great way to get an instant thickness boost - a few carefully placed partial extensions around the crown area will give the impression of extra volume. Plus, fine hair can really benefit from colouring as the colour molecule sits inside the cortex (hair shaft) and swells it so that colouring can make fine hair feel much bulkier. You may also like to consider restructuring the hair. It is not actually a perm with curls but more of a wave and body effect. Your hair is set on very large rollers to give some bounce to your hair.
