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.

I have just past shoulder length hair but it is very fine. I am a police officer so wear a hat a lot! This makes my hair go as flat as a pancake so I have grown it so I can put it in a ponytail, it does mean when I take my hat off it still looks ok, but as its so fine it just looks a little straggly when down, any suggestions as to how I could have it cut into a shape and still put it up?

Having layers incorporated into a hairstyle is a great way to create shape, body and movement in lifeless locks. Ask your stylist to cut internal shorter panels into your hair to enhance volume and build style. Ensure your hairdresser maintains weight at the ends to give the illusion of thickness, helping you to achieve a wearable style after a long day at work.

I have very fine shoulder length hair! And I mean fine!! Recently > dyed blonde, from my natural mousey brown! I cannot do anything with it, it just lays flat and if in a ponytail, it is the skinniest thing ever! I often get woven-in hair extensions, just so I can have long, thick, natural blond looking hair. Is there anything at all I can do to make it thicker? Not just by using a special shampoo for temporary appeared thickness etc! I am sure my extensions, which I have only been getting for 6 months, have not helped, but my hair has ALWAYS been this fine or am I just blessed with the genes. In the next couple of weeks, I will be dying my hair black and cut into a style. Please help.

What is your diet like? You can ensure your hair is in optimum health by eating your 5 portions of fruit and veg a day plus omega oils are great for hair, skin and nails. When you have your hair cut, do not be tempted to go for layers, keep it in a simple one-length style which creates weight and the illusion of thickness. Extensions are the ideal choice for thickness and if they are applied correctly by a trained stylist there really is not any reason they should damage your hair. Racoon offer two types of extensions - bonded and wefts. The bonded extensions will last up to 4 months and the hairdresser will be able add just a few partial extensions to give volume. The Racoon Micro Wefts are the latest launch and last up to 4 weeks. Again, the stylist can just add a few wefts to thicken the hair. With the wefts you can re-use them so they are very economical. With any extensions it is important that you use the right aftercare and maintain them carefully.
