Lynda asks:
When I was younger I had beautiful thick hair and since turning 70 it is fine and flyaway. The only time it looks good is when I go to the hairdressers to get my colour done. Is there anything I can do to keep it looking good all of the time?

If your hair is fine, it is better to try a short-to-medium version of a bob haircut or a pixie hairstyle with some teasing at the roots for added volume. These styles are timeless and quite easy to style at home. Lighter tones are easier to maintain, which is why many older women opt for blondish or caramel hues. Speak to your hairdresser and ask how often you should come for a colour and cut, and ask if they offer any promotions or discounts for mid-week visits.

Jakki asks:
I am a young at heart 61 year old with what was once naturally blonde hair, now white. I have had a variation on a bob for donkeyís years, reason being itís easy for me to manage and in the past looked really good.

Recently I started to experience hair loss so my once full looking bob is looking decidedly thinner, especially at the front sides. I do have very fine hair and donít really want to go short. Do I get rid of layers? I really donít know what to do and can never explain myself at the hairdressers. Can anyone tell me what I should be asking for at the salon, whether it be technique or style. HELP!!

Hi Jakki

Sometimes just taking a specific hair supplement can make a difference so try that first, also try a volumising shampoo and a spray in leave in conditioner. Give your head a good massage to improve the blood supply to your scalp when youíre shampooing too. I would suggest growing the layers down a bit, and perhaps go an inch shorter all the way round. Hopefully a combination of all of the above you will see improvement within a month. Good luck

Miriam asks:
Hi my 5 year old daughter used to have a beautiful curly hair it always been thin but always looked very full until last week she asked me if she could have a blow dry and without realising the damage I was going do to her hair I used a flat iron and now her curls are very different than they used to be. Her full hair now looks thin even after a week of washing it and Iím afraid to cut it as she still have curls at the end the problem is more on the top and Iím afraid that if I trim her hair she will lose the few curls she still have at the end. Please tell me if there is something I could do to bring her amazing curls back because Iím worried that I ruined her curls for good.

Try not to panic, go and buy a curl enhancing shampoo and leave in conditioner. They usually state they have magnesium in them and should be available from high street stores as well as professional salons. ...More >

Shampoo her hair and then apply the leave in conditioner (normally a spray) comb her hair through with a wide tooth comb very gently and then just keep scrunching up her hair as it dries. I quite often suggest putting head upside down scrunching as tightly as possible, popping on a shower cap and leaving the hair to dry.

Hopefully it will restore her curls back to there former glory, try not to worry
