Could you please give me some advice on choosing the right hair extensions. I have shoulder length hair and it is quite thin and flat, I would really like to be able to have it curly and make it look thicker all of the time and have only ever tried using clip in hair extensions. I am not sure if I should get longer lasting extensions put in and am worried that I wont be able to look after them properly and they will look a mess. How easy will it be for me to blow dry extensions that are attached and will it cost a lot to keep them up?

The most important advice here is go to a HABIA accredited salon with professional certified trained extensionists - you need a detailed consultation to decide a system that would be suitable for your hair and lifestyle. With fine flat hair you should go for flatter bonded extensions which will blend perfectly with your natural hair. Balmain Hairís SystŤme Volume comes in 2 strengths fine and normal , it wonít overburden your hair and will add as much volume as you desire. Electrical appliances can be used for easy blow drying or adding curl and texture. At your consultation make sure you ask everything you want to know including aftercare to ensure your new hair stays in tip- top condition.

I am a lady with longish hair that I have no idea what to do with. It is thinning on top and gets greasy easily but frizzy from about halfway and gets very tangled (I donít overwork it; I only use heat about once a fortnight). Normally it goes in a bun for work as I donít have time but you can see my scalp when I put it back. I would love a style that is low maintenance and doesnít bring attention to how thin it is.

There are two pieces of advice I would offer. First is style wise I would suggest a variation of the classic bob. This is a low maintenance style and makes thinner hair appear thicker as well. Something else worth considering is a Keratin treatment, this will help with the frizziness and make your hair feel thicker and in better condition.

I have a double crown that peaks up and I just hate it! My hair is usually quite dry so I put leave in conditioner, serum or some spray on it to calm it down. Itís naturally wavy so I always leave it to dry naturally usually putting a twist in it to enhance curls I recently tried the sock doughnut overnight thing, the curls turned out lovely but my double crown was really noticeable - how can I curl my hair without heat or too much product that will keep my double crown flat?! Help!

Longer hair will often help mask this problem as it will weigh the hair down. No matter what the length of your hair the alternative solution is inserting Velcro rollers to achieve your desired curl. Section the hair from the top of the crown into 20 sections depending on how thick the hair is in various directions and roll inwards towards the face. Start rolling from the top to the bottom of the hair to achieve a smooth finish. The hair that you are rolling should be as wide as the Velcro roller that you are inserting. After 1 or 2 hours in the hair, smooth out the hair with a paddle brush and although you didnít want to use too much product, gels and smoothing serums can help add weight to the hair and make them lie in the desired direction.
