Sharon asks:
I suffer from hair loss is it possible to have hair extensions when I suffer from hair loss?

Hair extensions can be used to mask hair loss but you would need to have a thorough consultation with an expert in this field so they can determine if your hair will be able to take extensions. The best in the business is Lucinda Ellery in London and she has a host of hair techniques that can help to mask hair loss if extensions are suitable. Your trained extensions hairdresser will also be able to test the strength of your hair and will advice on suitability.

I have been having weaves done for about a year but I find the synthetic hair weaves I am buying break really easily and do not retain the thickness for very long. I try not to comb the extensions to often but I still end up with hair breaking off onto the floor. Perhaps I should be buying better quality weaves, can you recommend a particular brand and where can I buy it from.

Some people prefer to use synthetic hair because it is lighter and stays straighter if using straight hair or curly if using curly. It can be easier to manage if just rinsed and left to dry normally. However synthetic has developed and you can now purchase what is known as Thermo fibre which can endure heat up to 180c. It feels and acts like human hair and is available in up to 29 colours. It can be purchased as machine weft, clip in or the top ends pre-bonded. With regards to shredding, this might have a lot to do with the type of brush you are using and how you prepare your hair before you go to bed. It is best to use a nylon bristle brush that can groom through the hair without pulling it. With regards to wearing your hair whilst you sleep, I recommend you plait it before you go to bed. The reason for this is whilst you are sleeping, you might be moving around and this would cause the hair to tangle. In the morning if the incorrect brush is used and you are trying to detangle your hair, this will result in loss of hair due to the amount of brushing.

Liz asks:
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.
