I have long blonde highlighted hair which is very fine and flyaway. It is very fluffy when I wake up in the morning and so I always have to wash it. What products are best to use as I never know whether to use shampoos and conditioners designed for coloured hair or for fine hair. Also, what styling tools/products would you suggest?

It sounds to me like you are suffering from damaged hair - as Iím sure you know highlighting hair, especially with bleach is incredibly damaging and combined with your fine hair you need some tlc!
Limit the number of times you shampoo your hair per week. If you can stretch the amount of time in-between shampoos this gives hair time to rest and for the natural hair oils to accumulate. Use a moisturizing shampoo such as my Bleach Blonde Shampoo which helps repair bleached hair and gently tone any yellow to a gorgeous ashy baby blonde. Wash hair ONLY in lukewarm water. Hot water will dry out the cuticle and enhance any existing damage. Rinse hair many times until all shampoo has been completely removed. Always rinse with cool to cold water. This seals newly added moisture back into the cuticle. Avoid using hot styling tools which will exacerbate the dryness of any chemically damaged hair. Allow hair to air dry. To add curls or waves use, pin curls, rag or soft sponge rollers. Avoid heat styling. Take hair vitamins designed to strengthen hair. These will help the hair to repair itself from the root area as the strands grow. Use only a smooth, wide toothed combs and brush damaged hair only as needed. Never brush spongy or damaged hair when wet. If the damage does not improve after a few weeks, visit a hair care professional for salon conditioning treatments. Have damaged ends removed. Avoid applying any additional chemicals to severely damaged hair. Drink lots of water, get plenty of rest and treat your hair with TLC

I sort of have a few challenges all in one which is frustrating! I have very fine hair, I have a double crown and my hair gets greasy very easily too. I wear my hair short because when I try to grow it, it tends to get a bit straggly, limp and again greasy. The double crown doesnít help because when I wake up in the morning itís
sticking up all over the place and when trying to grow it I still have to wash it and blow dry it every single day. Iíd love to have feminine, long luscious hair - is there any way I can achieve this? Or will I always have short hair? And if I will always have short hair thatís fine but how do I combat the double crown and grease! I feel so yucky and not like a lady at all! Though it does look great when freshly washed and blow dried, but disastrous the next morning! Thanks heaps for your help!

Ok letís try to sort the oily hair out first. Firstly invest in a specific oily scalp shampoo and always wash your hair with luke warm water and not hot is this makes the scalp produce more oil.
As far as the double crown is concerned Iím afraid that will always be a problem with short styles but just as a suggestion you could consider Racoon Internationalís hair extensions to make your hair thicker and also the length youíve been after.

My hair is quite fine and I was wondering if real extensions would damage my hair even more or should I just get the clip in ones and
if so do you know any cheap places in the Aberdeenshire area?

Real hair extensions would not damage your hair if they are correctly applied and looked after. With fine hair, you have a couple of choices as to which techniques might best suit you. Firstly it depends on the length of your hair and the overall style and look that you want as an end result.
It might be best if you look at trying non aggressive techniques such as the Hook and Latch (no glue no threads) Micro ring track, (nice flat technique without stressing your hair) or the integrated weave hair extension techniques. You can see what these techniques look like by visit our website for more information.
