Elaine asks:
I have just past shoulder length hair but it is very fine. I am a police officer so wear a hat a lot! This makes my hair go as flat as a pancake so I have grown it so I can put it in a ponytail, it does mean when I take my hat off it still looks ok, but as its so fine it just looks a little straggly when down, any suggestions as to how I could have it cut into a shape and still put it up?

Having layers incorporated into a hairstyle is a great way to create shape, body and movement in lifeless locks. Ask your stylist to cut internal shorter panels into your hair to enhance volume and build style. Ensure your hairdresser maintains weight at the ends to give the illusion of thickness, helping you to achieve a wearable style after a long day at work.

Chelsea asks:
I have very fine shoulder length hair! And I mean fine!! Recently > dyed blonde, from my natural mousey brown! I cannot do anything with it, it just lays flat and if in a ponytail, it is the skinniest thing ever! I often get woven-in hair extensions, just so I can have long, thick, natural blond looking hair. Is there anything at all I can do to make it thicker? Not just by using a special shampoo for temporary appeared thickness etc! I am sure my extensions, which I have only been getting for 6 months, have not helped, but my hair has ALWAYS been this fine or am I just blessed with the genes. In the next couple of weeks, I will be dying my hair black and cut into a style. Please help.

What is your diet like? You can ensure your hair is in optimum health by eating your 5 portions of fruit and veg a day plus omega oils are great for hair, skin and nails. When you have your hair cut, do not be tempted to go for layers, keep it in a simple one-length style which creates weight and the illusion of thickness. Extensions are the ideal choice for thickness and if they are applied correctly by a trained stylist there really is not any reason they should damage your hair. Racoon offer two types of extensions - bonded and wefts. The bonded extensions will last up to 4 months and the hairdresser will be able add just a few partial extensions to give volume. The Racoon Micro Wefts are the latest launch and last up to 4 weeks. Again, the stylist can just add a few wefts to thicken the hair. With the wefts you can re-use them so they are very economical. With any extensions it is important that you use the right aftercare and maintain them carefully.

Natalie asks:
My hair is really thick, and has a little bit of a wave to it, but it is not frizzy. It goes about to my shoulders, and it has layers at the bottom. I want to know how to make it a little bit wavier, like almost curly, but not with ringlets or anything. How do I do that?

When your hair is thick with very few layers it certainly makes it harder to curl and keep the curls in. I would recommend that if you desire to curl your hair, having some long layers put through your hair and thus taking some of the weight from your hair. This will make it easier to style and give you more choice and variation to your hair. Do you use irons at the moment because they are fantastic for curling hair also.
