Sophie asks:
Iíve quite thick hair that gets greasy fast and Iíve tried everything but I canít find a shampoo that doesnít weigh my hair down and doesnít make my hair flat. Just wondering if you can recommend any shampoo and conditioners that are light and donít leave a lot of product but still wash thoroughly

Hi Sophie, I love the Joico, Iíd hair and Redken ranges. If you donít have colour on your hair try using one for normal hair or called balancing. You can always try a spray leave in conditioner as that will add moisture and condition your hair without weighing your hair down. Thank you

Steffy asks:
I am 20 years old and I have thin semi curly hair with less volume hair below shoulder. I have suffered with hair loss for the last five years. I have tried hair cutting my hair, but it doesnít suit me. I have square round face. Could you help me please.

Hi Steffy, have you tried taking a hair supplement, also using a protein volume shampoo and spray leave in conditioner? These will all help your hair feel thicker and fuller. I suggest an inverted bob style as length that frames the face softens a square face, perhaps a side parting too! I would style with mousse and diffuse as that would encourage your natural wave and also make the hair look more voluminous. Good luck

Evelyn asks:
Iím 23 and growing up I had pretty thick hair, however, over the last year my hair has thinned out a lot Ė Iíve lost about a third of it. I have made quite a few changes, that could be contributing to this loss in bulk: I now wash my hair almost every day because I exercise daily; Iíve started using more professional shampoos and conditioners; I brush my hair more often and I rely on dry shampoo more. Iíve also been letting it grow and colouring it more. Iím getting less sleep than usual, but my diet has improved and Iím exercising more. My hair has always been healthy too - I donít put much heat on it and I always let it air dry Ė and as far as Iím aware there isnít any hereditary hair thinning in the females in my family. Iím concerned that this thinning will be permanent, although Iíve noticed a lot of "baby hairs" Ėso that gives me a little hope that it may be growing back. Is there anything that I should be doing (or not doing) to encourage my hair to grow back thick again?

First of all, it all depends on whether the thinning of your hair is occurring at a follicular level, whereby you are losing more hair than is the Ďusualí 100 hairs a day or your hair has stopped growing Ė or whether the thinning you are experiencing is actually due to the ends of your existing hair thinning and breaking away. ...More >

Considering some of the change in habits youíve described, it could be that your haircare regime is contributing to the thinning of your hairís lengths and ends. As youíve been letting your hair grow, not getting it trimmed regularly and colouring it more frequently, it could be that the ends of the hairs are thinning out due to styling damage, age and colour damage. As the ends Ė the oldest part of your hair Ė are subject to longer-term damage through styling and colouring, they get weaker and break away.

This will contribute to your hair looking and feeling less thick, because the individual hairs have become thinner or have broken away and therefore reduced in number. This type of hair thinning is usually far easier to treat than hair loss. If this is the case, a cut, to remove some of the thinner weaker ends, followed by a professional restorative Keratin treatment, may help to repair damaged bonds, rebuilding and restoring damaged hairs, making them individually appear thicker and your overall hair fuller.

If, however, your hair thinning is happening at root level, and is occurring as a result of hair loss or lack of growth, determining the cause can be trickier. Hair loss in young women can be caused by a number of reasons, from diet and lifestyle to an undiagnosed medical condition. If this is the case, a visit to your GP may be necessary. Alternatively you could make an appointment with a hair loss specialist clinic, such as Unlimited Hairloss Solutions, where a trichologist will be able to carry out a thorough scalp analysis and blood tests, to help determine the root cause of your loss. The benefit of visiting a hair loss specialist is that they will be able to then also prescribe you a hair replacement programme, based on your individual needs, once the cause and extent of your hair loss has been determined.
