Georgia asks:
My hair is naturally wavy and frizzy. I really donít like it so I straighten it most days. However, the problem is that it is also very thin, which is ok when I donít straighten it, but when I do, it looks really thin and you can even see my ears through it. How can I make it look thicker?

We have a fabulous range of products from Sebastian that have a number of products called "Body Double" that really fill any hair full of volume and are endorsed by Victoria Beckham. There is a mousse called Thickify styler that is great! A lot of salons use the products so you could call in and ask can you try them. We offer a service of trying the products on a section of your hair without charge and then you know what your hair feels like with the product.





Neeraj asks:
I am 19 and my hair creates a big problem whenever I go outside. My hair is very thick, damaged and dry. I have lost my confidence because of my hair. I want my hair to be soft, silky and manageable.

It sounds like you need to give your hair some love and attention as it is dry, damaged and hard to manage. Try using a high quality shampoo and conditioner such as Fudgeís Torture Tonic (£9.95 each) which will nourish your hair and nurture it back to health. You should also be using a hair mask once or twice a week to give your hair a deep condition, I would recommend Masque Oleo-Relax by Kerastase, as it is formulated for dry, sensitized hair such as yours. As far as straightening your hair is concerned, make sure that you protect your hair from the damaging effects of straightening irons as they can dry your hair out even more. Use a protective spritz before straightening, and try and use straighteners that have a range of temperatures, so you donít have them hotter than you need. After two to three days your hair will probably be ready to wash again Ė so it should not matter if the frizz comes back!







Laci asks:
I have unbelievably thick, curly, frizzy, uncontrollable hair. If I stood 5 feet away from a wall my hair would touch it. I just cut it up to my shoulders which is turning out not to be the best idea I ever made. I donít exactly want get rid of the curls but the volume is driving me crazy, The only way I can ever get rid of the volume is to straighten it with a flat iron which gives me split ends and eventually looks worse then before, and doing the blow-drying thing seems to do nothing I've thought about cutting my hair really short and sometimes spiking it or a Mohawk I think thatís what its called. But that would be a little scary, seeing as how I'm only 13 and never have cut my hair that short before in my life. I would not mind having it chemically straightened but I have highlights will that cause a problem. What should I do?

The Mohawk style sounds great and could well work for you, you will need to commit to a certain amount of effort with styling but this can be really easy to do. If you are scared that it is too extreme then have a look through hair magazines for examples of softer less dramatic styles that may have a slightly Mohawk look about them but without being too harsh. Visit a local stylist (you can find you nearest at the ĎFind a Saloní section on UKHairdressers.com) for some advice before you do anything, they will advise you on how to control your hair as well as options for cuts and styles and what styling may be required. While you are deciding whether or not to go for the Mohawk, the best way to control frizzy unruly hair is to get some condition back into your hair. Try deep conditioning treatments, TIGIís Treat Me Right intensive conditioner will help put the moisture back into your hair, and a leave-in conditioner such as TIGIís Ego Boost will help protect your hair. Leave-in conditioners are great for curly hair as well as conditioning they help to fight frizz at the same time. Whenever possible have a break from using heated appliances. Heat causes immense damage to your hair and using heat less often you will notice the difference in your hairís condition. If your hair has gone frizzy through the day tame your frizz for an evening out with a defining product such as TIGIís Uptight Curl Maker. Shine sprays are an excellent light product to use on your hair to give it a glossy coating, this helps smooth it and deters the dreaded static and frizz, TIGIís Headrush spray smells gorgeous and is long lasting. Curly hair can be great for creating more wild styles and can be tamed into this seasons trendy wavy and curly looks. If you wish to continue straightening your hair ensure you use a heat protective styling product such as TIGIís Extra Extra Straight or TIGIís Control Freak Serum. Proto-col collagen supplements (taken orally) will also help to avoid poor condition of the hair and promote shine. Donít keep going over the same section again and again, itís better to go over it with the straighteners slowly and get it right first time then keep reapply those hot irons to it, causing more damage in the long run.
