I have naturally curly hair, I have recently had my hair Cut to just below my chin after always having long hair. Iím happy with the style and wear it curly or straight. I have been thinking about having it cut shorter but am unsure if the curl would still look ok. I have looked into using a straightening product to permanently straighten it while it is shorter but am worried about the affect on my hair and if it would still grow back curly (wouldnít want to loose the curls forever!) I have long face and am tall and slim so also worried if short would suit me?

Straight hair will emphasise a long face shape, and body shape. Everything appears vertical from head to toe. So, a little movement will compliment your over all look. Permanently straightening the hair is not bad, when done correctly. Itís great, but it requires commitment. What is bad is when the hair is abused by too much straightening and then you have the desire to revert it all back to natural curls/wavy. Once the internal structure of the hair is changed it pretty much a done deal. My suggestions try cutting it shorter, use your natural hair Ė this all depends on hair texture, how firm or lose the movement. Usually going shorter will generally do things, reduce bulk (layering) or, make the hair/curl/movement lift way from the head (volume, bigger fuller shape) However there are many great products for curly hair.

My hair is just below my shoulders and straight with a few layers at the bottom, it appears to be in very good condition and is extremely shiny (it is coloured as I am going grey). In the last six
months I have had real problems with what looks like a top layer of frizz on top of my head. My hairdresser said its new hair but as it is growing it just seems to frizz, I say frizz but Iím not sure if itís
flyaway, it doesnít appear to have a different texture to the rest of my hair so I donít think it is because of the grey. I have spent a fortune on so many products and the only thing that calms this down and makes it look better is Trevor Sorbieís products for straight hair however there is something in it that really irritates my scalp and I end up with terrible dandruff and itchy scalp when I use it. I have tried so many other products for frizzy hair or for straight hair (including John Frieda Frizz ease) but it seems that everything irritates my scalp. The only thing that stops my scalp being like this is Daniel Fieldís scalp therapy shampoo, it gives me a lovely clean and dry free scalp but makes my hair look worse, which means I am constantly adding serum or other similar products to the top of my hair to stop this frizz (which seem to sink in after an hour and the frizz comes back) I am getting so fed up about this and can not afford to keep buying so many expensive products especially when they donít do what they say they will do and as I say if it wasnít for the scalp problem I would happily stick with Trevor Sorbie products for better looking hair. Please advise me what I can do as I have never had a problem with my hair before this and it is really getting me down. By the
way I do use straighteners but only used to use them on the very ends of my hair for a few seconds but now I have to use them right from the scalp which is worrying me that I may end up actually damaging the shorter frizzy hair at the top.

It sounds like you need a complete overhaul of your hair-care routine! Begin by using a good, nourishing hair care regime, such as Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo-relax (£52.25 for the set). These products have been designed specifically for dry, sensitised hair and though relatively expensive, are fairly concentrated so you only need to use small amounts; dispensing about the size of a walnut in the palm of your hand each time. Next, when hair is still damp, apply a serum to control any particularly frizzy hair. I would recommend Fudge Unleaded De Frizz (£8.95) this controls hair whilst smoothing and polishing. If you are worried about damaging your hair whilst styling then why not try a protective cream such as LíOreal Hot Style Iron Finish (£12.30) on the sections you straighten. Finally, to fix your style and add further control use some Fudge Skyscraper hairspray (£8.50), which will fix your finished style and banish your frizz from returning!

I have very thin hair especially on the scalp. My hair is fragile and getting all the more thinner. Can you suggest a good hair care routine and a good hair cut?

First and foremost - try Nourkrin Extra Strength - a Hair Recovery product that reduces hair-loss and thinning. This is available at Boots and other chemists. Secondly you need to have your hair cut shorter and in more of a blunt cut with a few layers - this creates the illusion of thickness. There are many reasons for hair thinning so itís hard to make an assessment. Healthy diet is vital though. Try Nourkrin itís an excellent product.
