Start off by conditioning/reconstructing the hair with Joico K-Pak Reconstructor Shampoo and Conditioner, and styling products as it sounds like your hair has a lot of abuse. Hair can only take so much abuse, so you might want to consider cutting your hair. Very thick hair generally works better when the hair is layered. I would encourage you to love your texture rather than trying to achieve something nature didnít provide. When the hair is so thick you have to cut the hair much shorter or keep it longer to control curl and texture. Start by asking your stylist to remove the excess bulk through cutting. This will control the curl/frizzy texture and ensure better condition. Then maybe add semi or demi colour (colours that deposit only) to make the hair appear shiny and healthier. In short, cut your hair shorter, layers are great, condition is a priority but learn to love you texture.

Zoe asks:
I really want a fringe but have a cowís flick I have been told because of this itís hard to have a fringe but I had a full fringe when I was younger?

Never fear - you can still have a fringe with a Cowís Flick Ė all you do is to make sure the fringe is thick enough to give it the weight to keep it from bouncing up. Normally you would just have to quickly blow dry the cowís flick in the morning over dry hair to keep it in shape.

Lucy asks:
I have long quite wavy thick black hair with no particular style, I want a long side swept fringe similar to Nicole Richies but on the opposite side, I have a rather round face, would this suit me or can you recommend another fringe that would suit me?

I am not a big fan of fringes that go straight across the forehead as I was made to have one when I was younger.

Its amazing how a bad cut when younger just stays with you - Anyway, if you have a round shaped face it is best to stay away from blunt straight full fringes, as this will cut down you face shape even further. Your ideal fringe is an off-set side fringe that still shows part of your forehead. It looks stylish and gives a great shape to almost any length hair. I would also recommend you have more layers and keep the length to past your shoulders. Lots of layers and the side fringe will give you a totally different shape, and encourage the wave in your hair - Wavy hair is Big New right now!
