Nina asks:
My hair is mid-length and naturally curly/ frizzy. Whenever I have it straightened at the hairdressers it looks fantastic, but because my hair is also really thick, it takes me ages to do it myself, and it always looks rubbish. I have recently been thinking about having it chemically straightened. Does this work well? What are the pros and cons of having this done?

Chemical straightening can work very well on your type of hair, but please bear in mind it will not completely eliminate you having to dry it straight and using the straightening irons.

Also be very careful with the condition as it is a chemical process and can dry the hair out, so invest in a good quality intensive conditioner. I would also be wary of having this service if you have permanent colour on your hair.

Rebecca asks:
My hair is thick, greasy and also coloured the problem is it often feels heavy and lank even after washing, has no shine at all and at times I canít run my fingers through it without getting them stuck! The first time I usually dye my hair itís lovely-really light, full of bounce and shine. As soon as I wash it, it starts going dull, feeling greasy with no lightness to it. What would you recommend I use to get some shine and bounce back?

Letís start from the beginning. Sometimes when we use colours from the shops they donít always give you the result youíre after. However, I suggest you go and have a haircut that will thin your hair out to eliminate most of the thickness, also a shampoo and conditioner for oily hair. Ask a professional for a colour that suits you and your complexion salons always have great colours and shine products and are also much better than the ones in the shops.

Louisa asks:
I have really thick hair, and it is SO annoying! I want my hair to go fluffy, like Cassie from Skins, and look thinner, but I donít want > layers because I have had layers before and didnít like it!

How can I get my hair to go fluffy?

Layers can be cut into hair in a less obvious way, and so that hair is subtly thinned out. Just make sure that you are clear about what you want when you go to your Hairdresser. Cassieís look is more about the styling than the cut though, and to get the Cassie ĎBed Headí look I would use a good texturiser or sea salt spray. Work the product through damp hair and then scrunch dry with your hands whilst using a hairdryer. This should give you the same, textured look. To rough hair up even more you could slightly backcomb your hair, though be careful not to overdo it as a lot of backcombing can add volume as well as texture.
