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

I have JUST turned 17, and over the past 7 or 8 months I have noticed that I have loads of grey hairs scattered around my hair. As more and more people point them out it is becoming more and more important to do something about them. I have never coloured my hair before, and I was wondering if you could advise me on any shampoos on the market to help greys or help me with the best home colouring kit, brand etc. to use, I don't want to pay loads for the colour but I still want it to be affective and natural looking. Thank you for any advice you can give me. p.s Do not suppose anyone might know what could be causing this premature greying?

Grey hair is caused by loss of pigment which can be resultant of strong medication, shock or pregnancy to name but a few reasons. Having an all over tint would eliminate any grey, but might cause a more distinct grey re-growth. Opting for some lighter streaks might help to blend the grey and give a more natural look without heavy roots. Visit your nearest salon for a consultation and discuss booking in on a model night for a more economical option. Always avoid home colouring as a box colour will not guarantee the right results and can heavenly worsen condition.

I gave birth for the 2nd time a year ago, just after that my dad died so for the last year have been under a lot of stress. After giving birth I lost lots of hair but it started growing back but I now think the stress of the last year has taken its toll. I have naturally curly hair but cannot get it to curl anymore so am having to put it up every day. My hair is dry and flyaway. I have it highlighted but always have. I do not do anything differently. This problem is really getting me down. My ends are really dry and damaged, do I have to wait for it to grow, or shall I have it all cut off? I want my curly hair back.

Stress related hair loss is a little less so. Both are classed as temporary and reversible, so your hair will grow back properly but it can be difficult to say how long the stress related hair loss will continue for. Any excessive hair loss will revert back to a normal rate and new growth will eventually allow you to grow your hair longer again. In the meantime it might be better to keep you hair shorter so that it looks better, with less wispy ends. Also use a treatment conditioner to overcome the dryness, so when the bulk of your hair is ready to grow longer again it is in good condition and less likely to break.
