Start off by conditioning/reconstructing the hair with Joico K-Pak Reconstructor Shampoo and Conditioner, and styling products as it sounds like your hair has a lot of abuse. Hair can only take so much abuse, so you might want to consider cutting your hair. Very thick hair generally works better when the hair is layered. I would encourage you to love your texture rather than trying to achieve something nature didnít provide. When the hair is so thick you have to cut the hair much shorter or keep it longer to control curl and texture. Start by asking your stylist to remove the excess bulk through cutting. This will control the curl/frizzy texture and ensure better condition. Then maybe add semi or demi colour (colours that deposit only) to make the hair appear shiny and healthier. In short, cut your hair shorter, layers are great, condition is a priority but learn to love you texture.

Ashleigh asks:
I have been trying to grow my hair since I had a bob cut 2 years ago but now itís got to a length and wonít seem to budge, I am constantly bleaching my hair! Will my hair grow any more or is that it for me? Also could my dyeing have anything to do with my hair not growing?

Though regularly bleaching your hair shouldnít stop it from growing longer, it wonít do any wonders for the hair you already have! I think you need to carefully consider your hair care routine. If you are adamant that you like your hair bleached then at least use a good quality shampoo and conditioner, such as Fudge Torture Tonic (£9.95 each), which will hydrate and repair your hair from all of the chemical damage. Also try and use regular hair treatments to further the repair of your hair. These donít have to take you lots of time and effort, Fudge also do a fantastic leave in conditioner called 1 SHOT+, (£9.95) which you simply spray onto damp hair, comb in and leave.

Suzanne asks:
I am a natural blonde until I stated to mess around with colouring my hair nothing dark, just different shades of blonde. Iím trying to grow my colour out, but why is it coming through dark and not my natural blonde any more. What can I do? Age 47.

Our hair seems to go darker as we get older but then of course we go grey so it starts to lighten again, but I feel the reason you are experiencing this, is because you see your natural hair color next to a lighter blonde so it appears darker to you, also keep in mind that when your hair is natural it gets the sun light on it exposing natural sun-lightened highlights. I would recommend that you cut off the old colour as soon as you can so that you only see your natural hair and as it gets exposed to the sunlight I am sure your hair will be back to natural.
