Marie asks:
My hair is very fine, but the last 6 months or so it seems to be getting worse and my scalp is beginning to show. I don't know if it is getting thinner or I am losing my hair. I am getting quite paranoid about looking bald. Is there anything I can do to make my hair thicker or make my roots appear thicker so my scalp doesn't show through? I have to wash my hair every day, will this be making it worse? I have considered extensions but don't really want any high maintenance styling also I have heard they are expensive to have done!! Can you please help?

I donít know what colour your hair is but you might want to think about making it darker if itís on the light shade, being darker it will give the illusion of being thicker and the colour will give it more body. You might also like to consider a hair loss concealer such as DermMatch available in various shades





Joanna asks:
I have coloured my hair for the last 5 years as I have the same grey white streak my mum has on my side only- eat you heart out Cruella - however here lie the problem. My hair is fine, flyaway untidy mess looks great when I leave the salon until I wash it and am straight back to untidy, semi wavy dry hair. My problem is I am going into hospital and will have limited use of my arms for 12 weeks. I would like to have a soft perm as I canít brush or style during that time. Please can anyone suggest the best options to me?

I would suggest having your hair in a shorter style. If you have a soft perm or wave introduced into your hair then it WILL need some styling to make your hair look its best. ...More >

If you have a shorter style for a while, while you are recovering, you could also have some colour introduced to give you texture and a style that always looks great with minimal styling requirements.

The colour will thicken your hair, not only in appearance but in volume also. The introduction of some colour can be placed so that it works with your hairstyle, not only when you have visited the salon. Explain to your stylist the issues you have with your hair and she should be able to give you a style that will work with your natural wave and fine texture to ensure your hair looks its best while you are unable to maintain it as you usually would.

Have a look on the style gallery at some shorter hairstyles with colour to give you some idea of looks you could choose.







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

Diane ShawAnswered By:

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 Ė 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.
