I have really thick hair that is hard to manage. It’s also very dry since I have put a lot of dyes in it over the years. I have an oval face and my hair is mid- length with a fringe, but I would like to get a bob for a change of look. Please can you let me know if this style would be possible?

Bobs of all shapes and sizes are the hairstyle of the moment, thanks to celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes. You should feel lucky to have an oval face-shape, as most styles will suit you. If you’re feeling extra brave why not try a 1920’s inspired ‘baby bob’; an extra short bob with a blunt fringe, recently made famous by the ultra cool Agyness Deyn, and therefore guaranteed to be the next big thing in hair trends! If this kind of striking cut sounds daunting, why not go for a more relaxed, playful bob like Gwyneth Paltrow’s, which can then be styled in a lose, tousled way, or straightened to perfection for a striking, glamorous look. As you mentioned you used to regularly colour your hair, I would recommend using a deep nourishing shampoo and conditioner, such as Fudge Torture Tonic (£9.95 each), which will rebuild any dry and damaged hair, promoting a healthy, glossy shine.

My hair is incredibly dry. It doesn't stay straight but instead creates bumps at the sides all the time. I don't know why this is happening and I've tried so many products including hair conditioner to get rid of this problem. It looks really unsightly and it undermines my
confidence. Even when I try to straighten it with straighteners, the
hair will still create that same bump. I've tried to make the bumps
more straight in the past by concentrating heat using the hairdryer but to no avail. I'm at a loss at what to do. Please help!

It sounds like you have tried most things, but don't give up just yet! Firstly I would strongly recommend a leave in conditioner like Sebastian Potion 9. This will hopefully help with the dryness and add some shine.
As far as the bumps in your hair, you could try having your hair chemically straightened with something like Wellstraight, but make sure this is done in a professional salon.

I have thick mid-length ginger hair and it is really difficult to straighten and I use L’Oreal heat protector and Straightening cream but I still look fluffy and with flicks all over the place.

First question. What straightening iron are you using? If your hair is thick then you need a good quality iron that will reach approx 220C. If it will not reach this temperature then your hair will be hard to style. Do not get one that has a higher temperature than this otherwise you could easily damage your hair. Stage one. Ensure you use a good professional shampoo and conditioner like L’Oreal professional. Before blow drying take most of the moisture out of your hair with a towel. Apply some L’Oreal professional tec-ni art serum then blow dry your hair section by section, roots to ends to keep your cuticle smooth. Then section by section apply a small amount of the L’Oreal Professional heat protector before running the straightening iron across each section. If you follow this routine your hair will be smooth and glossy. Regards Gary
