Nicky Shields asks:
Hi I have extremely fine baby soft hair that looks so shiny and lovely when I wash it, but during the day it goes dull and looks flat and lifeless, Iíve had various cuts and styles throughout the years, my hairdresser advised me to take sea kelp to help thicken it up but Iíve been taking it now for 3 months and my hair is no different I donít blow dry my hair and only had it bleached once, I just want my hair to look fuller and thicker cause Iím getting married in three years and Iím worried that the style I have will fall out really quick on my wedding day

Hello Nicky, a supplement such as Viviscal Pro will help to make your hair more healthy as it contains Amino Mar C! Sea kelp on its own wont be affective without other vitamins and minerals. If your hair gets flat daily then a shampoo for fine hair will help to add volume and a volumizing styling product can work wonders. ...More >

Styling for your wedding will stay in if the hair has been prepared sufficiently by a professional stylist. Choose a style that doesnít need to be over worked.

David asks:
Before I make a comment, I just want to say I appreciate for having such a comment based function, Iíve just stumbled across it, and well, I hope that I manage to get some tips! :D

So anyway, right to the point. My big problem for my hair is that it is very weak and light. I am 19 years of age, my hair has naturally been very straight. Problem that I am experiencing involves my hair simply being dragged around by any sort of wind... I add a lot of product to my hair, including hairspray, but even with all these products, my hair still becomes heavily affected by the wind, which destroys any style that I have created, and when no product is added the same scenario occurs. Of course, unfortunately there are no weather changing miracles that can look after my hair haha, but is there any haircut, or maybe a procedure that I can follow to allow my hair to behave?

Another problem that I have with my hair is that it is very thin, and it has little to no volume, I have tried all techniques, backcombing, perms but none have the effect of where I can just wake up and have good-looking normal hair. I just want my hair to look big, strong, I want it to define my face, as un styled hair is very flat and does not suit me. I think it is also worth mentioning that my hair is a sort of a short back and sides, and I do not style my hair backwards, instead I add crunch to the top of it, but with the winds my fringe just goes to the side and the hair splits and it becomes very messy, in a bad way.

What must I do? Should I even shave my hair off completely to allow it to re-grow? What could be a possible problem for my hair being so un-cooperative? I am willing to go through whatever it is, as I am just tired of having to deal with my hair, and hoping for it to look good, as with each style it looks different. Is there anything I can specifically ask the hairdresser / barber for? - Thanks :)

Okay David

Firstly you donít say how long the top sections of your hair are so hair cut wise initially I would suggest take the top shorter so that immediately means less to be affected by the wind. ...More >

Secondly having very fine hair is often a bit of a pain when your style conscious but there is hope in many ways that should result in making you happier if not thrilled at what you can achieve with your hair.

Diet is critical take a look at all the proteins, oils nuts, fruit and veg you eat this is your hair and bodies nutrients so needs to be considered. If you do already have a balanced diet then take a specific supplement for hair, there are many options available over the counter. Use the best you can afford professional protein shampoo this will add strength and body to your hair and use a spray on leave in protein conditioner. If you donít already blow dry your hair try doing it, use a volumising blow dry lotion, it must be clear in colour when it comes out ( if its opaque it may contain moisturizing ingredients that will makes your hair to flat ) distribute it as evenly as possible through your hair and comb it through. Use the dryer on medium heat & slow speed and a vent brush (available over the counter) and gently dry the hair in the opposite direction to the way you wear it. That way when its dry and you use your fingers or the brush to style it how you want to wear it you will have so much more body at the root area. I am a huge fan of dry shampoo and on fine hair its amazing shake it well and spray into the root area before you finish styling.

With hair its like building a house get the foundations right and the house will be strong and look great, donít get them right and you will experience subsidence get my drift? Anyway, I really hope this helps?

Diana asks:
Hi, I have very fine hair and I was just wondering if there is anyway to stop the problem I am having. My hair is medium length and very thin.

The problem I have is that my hair never seems to stay all together. I brush it and it stays together but after about 20 minutes it all seems to part away from each other.

Not split ends, but like sections of hair. It makes my hair look very unhealthy and looks like I never brush it. Is there any way I can stop this from happening? Thanks!

The key to having the best looking fine hair is diet, supplements specific for hair and nails protein shampoo and spray leave in conditioner. Use an acrylic hair brush as that doesnít encourage the oil produced from the scalp. Dry shampoo in the root area is helpful to plump up the hair overall. Hopefully this is helpful.
