Alrika asks:
I have very thin straight hair and would love a fuller, thicker hair look, but cannot seem get my hair any thicker, no matter what i try. Is there any specific thing i should be doing to get thicker hair? Also, i love the short wavy hair look, but i struggle in getting the waves to look right and to stay, should use a different method for the waves, or should I just give in and grow my hair longer.

When trying to achieve thicker hair there are various ways of enhancing the look of hair. The most common complaint amongst women with fine hair is that their style lacks body and bounce. For this problem, it is recommended to look for volumizing shampoos, conditioners and styling products containing plant proteins, such as quinoa and also hydrolysed keratin, which helps to give bulk to individual strands of hair. People with thin hair have more oil glands on their scalp which means it gets weighed down easily and appears flat. Philip Kingsley Tricho Pro is recommended as it helps to protect the hair – reducing breakage by hair being easier to comb. Damage and breakage can thin the appearance of the mid-lengths and ends. For a voluminous foundation style, use of a lightweight body building shampoo such as Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo is advised followed by Philip Kingsley Body Building Conditioner, to smooth the cuticle and help prevent flyaways. When applying conditioner, apply from mid-length to ends to avoid limp and lacklustre roots. After washing your hair, the PK Tricho pro thickening protein spray (part of the Philip Kingsley Trichotherapy Range) can be applied from mid lengths to ends. Trichotherapy contains stimulating anti-androgenic scalp drops that help to encourage healthy hair growth from the follicle - a thickening, strengthening protein spray that adds immediate body and helps to improve the integrity of strands over time. When styling hair it is important to remember that fine hair is more fragile, so use of a thickening heat protective spray such as PK Perfecting Spray is essential when applying heat. PK Prep Plumping Cream is also available for thickening hair, this can be used to add bulk to strands of hair. Hair trimming is feared by some because of loss of length but hair trimming helps to create the appearance of thicker hair whilst maintaining healthy hair by eliminating split ends.





Deepa asks:
Please recommend a shampoo and conditioner for smoothing hair?

In my opinion, the best products on the market for smoothing dry and frizzy hair are the Kérastase Discipline Bain Fluidealiste Sulfate Free Shampoo and the Kérastase Discipline Fondant Fluidealiste Conditioner. Both products boast Morpho-Keratine technology to restore flexibility, tame frizz and protect the hair and scalp against humidity.







Aneka asks:
I am a female and I have thick hair and it’s currently just on shoulder length; I’m thinking of getting it cut in a hairstyle similar or like the one boys have, I don’t know if it will fit my appearance or not?

Hi Aneka, I think you should always experiment with your hair and having thick hair means you are able to carry off most hairstyles. I would have a couple of consultations at salons and get some style suggestions and also advice on aftercare and styling required to maintain the look. Good luck and I hope you love it!
