Kay asks:
I have recently had chemotherapy and lost most of my hair. The chemo is nearly over and I have to go back to work which requires me to wear my hair in a bun. This is not practical with a wig so I was wondering if extensions would be a good option. What do you suggest as the best type and what sort of cost would I be looking at.

Racoon International number one in hair extensions has set up a heavily subsidised programme to provide an alternative to wigs for women suffering from medical hair loss. ...More >

The Racoon International íHair in Recovery Programmeí will offer a tested, approved and trusted hair extensions service that is structured to be both accessible and affordable to as many women as possible.

Racoon has developed a unique training course that offers a specialized service to people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. Research to develop this specialist training and service has been conducted under the guidance of Iain Sallis A.I.T Consultant Trichologist who has clinics at three Nuffield Hospitals.

A pilot scheme is being launched by the company which is seeking 100 women to take part in the programme. Once the pilot is completed, Racoon is planning to roll out the service nationwide through its network of 5, 000 appointed salons. It is also hoped that the service will eventually be offered through the NHS. Racoon International will subsidise 70% of the cost of hair and their unique bonding system to the patient, and all Racoon salons will reduce their hourly rate for application and maintenance visits. Racoon say that the cost of a full head, including application, will range from £155 for 10" hair to £170 for 12" hair. The hair is reusable and with regular salon care should last the patient between 6 and 12 months. Ethical sourcing of the hair is guaranteed.

Full consultation prior to application, care advice and instructions post application and regular salon check up visits will ensure that the patientís extensions, existing hair and scalp are kept in tip top condition.

Marcia asks:
Hello , I really need youíre help.My Hair is really dry and full of flyaways ,itís a nightmare! I donít know what to do anymore. I donít use heat on my hair at all , Iíve never dyed my hair or anything. In my entire life I only straightened my hair like 4 times. I wash my hair once a week which is the ideal as itís not stripping away the natural oils I believe. I donít know what to do , Itís taking my confidence away. I would love to have that shiny looking hair but my hair is always dry no matter what. It looks like its damaged and I just feel like to cut it all off sometimes. Its horrible , please help me ! thank you

This could be down to the shampoo and conditioner you use, if it is too heavy try changing to a cleansing shampoo. If you ever do dry your hair with heat be sure to apply heat protector and speak to your colourist to have a clear gloss added to your hair. This doesnít alter the colour but adds great shine to it which should help your confidence.

Claire asks:
I am 40 years old and at a loss as to what to do with my hair. For a while now I have been growing it so the back reaches the centre of my back but it always looks so lifeless and shapeless. I have layers through the top section and I have been colouring it myself with the L'Oreal Excellence brown mahogany shade. Pleas don't tell me to visit my salon colourist because I simply do not have the time or money for the upkeep of salon colouring! I have been toying with the idea of having 2-21/2 inches lopped off the back so that I may be able to go for a more bobbed effect but it has taken me so long to get it to this length that I am really reluctant to go for it even though I go for regular "just the ends off please" trims. I just don't know what to do to recapture its shine and style that I would have thought nothing of changing perhaps 15-20 years ago. Any ideas?

You are in the best years of your life but all of us in our 40's want to look younger- and so we should. You are obviously not happy with you hair cut so itís important to search high and low for a style you really dream of. When you find that look then go for it without hesitation. You hair seems to be over layered and limp at the ends, so I definitely think you need to lose some length. Go for a sophisticated sexy cut and then continue colouring yourself.
