Shelly asks:
My hair started thinning out a little over a year ago and my hair is now about half the thickness it once was. Blood tests showed my hormones and vitamin levels were normal. Iím starting to see some regrowth, but as my hair is very fine naturally, the ends are now looking very thin and transparent. I donít use heated products on it or dye it. Would monthly micro trims be my best bet to thicken the ends up? Itís currently sitting a few inches below my shoulders and I really donít want to go much shorter.

Hair thinning can be caused by a number of factors, from genetics to stress, and some of these wonít be determined from a standard blood test, so speaking to a qualified Trichologist at a clinic such as íUnlimited Hairloss Solutionsí can help you to determine the cause of your thinning. If youíre confident that the thinning has stopped and your hair is starting to return, the fine ends are most likely to be the thinner hairs that grew during that phase. Avoiding damaging and thinning these ends further is important, so avoiding heated appliances is a good start, and using products that will strengthen and fortify your strands will also help. Regular micro trims will also help, by preventing these finer, weaker ends from splitting, without compromising the length of your hair. Donít be put off because youíre concerned about losing length: blunt, freshly chopped ends will create the appearance of fuller, thicker locks. ...More >

To create the appearance of more fullness in your hair, you need to invest in products that contain thickening formulas and ingredients designed to add density and lift. Try LíOrťal Professionnelís Serie Expert Volumetry Shampoo and Conditioner, followed by a texturising product.

To give an instant, more noticeable boost to your hairís thickness and length, speak to an experienced stylist about hair extensions. There are so many different types available Ė from clip-in temporary extensions to longer lasting varieties Ė that you might find this is the best solution for you, while you wait for your hair to return to its usual thickness.

Jules asks:
This is really embarrassing but I got into a fight with my boy friend and I ended up with a lot of hair being ripped out from the left side of my head . The whole top layer or two is gone. No bald spots because I have a lot of hair. Also he grabbed my hair on the left side when my head was down so he got all the underneath hair going towards the back. I know I canít put the hair back but how do I make it look presentable while growing out. There is not much to put it in a pony tail on that side. Do you have any suggestions. My hair was already pretty short and growing out after continuous bad haircuts.

Thank you for any suggestions other than "get rid of the boyfriend" because Iíve got that already covered but I feel so ugly plus it feels weird. Itís something you can feel even if you canít see it.

Hi Jules, glad you have got rid of the boyfriend!
How about a cool undercut that side as an idea? I suggest you take a supplement specific for hair and nails as this will improve the quality and speed of the hair growth. Use the best protein shampoo and conditioner possible to keep the hair strong and have regular trims so that the short hair can catch up, unless you opt for the undercut. Look after yourself and good luck

Hiya, I dyed my hair cosmic blue, but Iím thinking of going back to black. How do I do it?

Kala KilshawAnswered By:

Hi Soph, you can apply the black directly over the blue. Make sure you use a no lift developer as you want deposit of the black and add 10 minutes to the processing time. It may fade quicker than usual so you may need to re apply slightly sooner than you had hoped. Good luck
