Giselle asks:
About 4 months ago I finished an intense 6 month chemotherapy treatment. Luckily I did not lose all of my hair but it did thin down. I have naturally curly hair but prior to having chemo I had it chemically straightened and coloured (this is before finding out about my cancer). Now my hair seems to be neither here or there. If I do not use styling mousses or leave-in conditioners it looks horrible, very frizzy and the top part is the new hair coming through and it looks wavy the bottom half is straight but looks very dry, when left out it is below shoulder length. I have tried numerous amounts of products recommended by hairdressers here in Australia, but none have helped. It is very depressing as prior to having the chemo my hair was extremely long (1/4 up from my backside) and plentiful. Any help that you can recommend will be greatly appreciated.

I am sorry to learn of your illness and subsequent problems with your hair. Can I suggest that you cut your hair to perhaps bob length, treat it to lots of conditioning treatments, eat healthily and basically you will find in no time it will look and feel better. Good luck

Lynn asks:
I have fine past the shoulders (long hair) it is layered with bangs and it is fly-away. I have tried spraying my brush, using a spray conditioner and a regular conditioner, but to no avail. The conditioner weighs my hair down and I cannot get any body or fullness. It ends up looking like a wet poodle that used a straightening iron. I am a professional and I need help. I also want my hair to look thick and full. After everything, my hair is still fly away. I also have coloured or higlighted hair. Please help with an answer.

Even poodles get groomed from time to time and often end up displaying a lovely and sometime visually challenging style. Everyones hair can be managed it is just a case of finding out which products, method and daily care programme you need to apply each day or week to end up with the manicured look you want. Hair extensions can help if they are applied as hair enhancement to help add volume and texture to your own head of hair. It is very important to select the right type of extension method, one that will not damage your hair at the root especially on removal. It does not help to use too many different products or too many products at once, they may clash with each other and contribute to some of the problems you have described. Find a brand and use the items your need from that brand. If your hair is dry use a moisturising product, if your hair is greasy then use a product that will help this situation. We have consultants around the country, if you would like to discuss a hair enhancement program, please send us an email and we will direct you to the nearest consultant.

Finally, with the right help, you will achieve your overall objective.

Maria asks:
I have a side fringe but it always seems to part into sections and I always end up clipping it back. I want a more Indie look, do you think I should get more layers and shorter?

I think the best solution is to make it thicker with more hair in the fringe. This makes sit heavier and will help keep it in place. It does not mean that the fringe needs to be cut completely blunt, it can still be cut slightly choppier. Something that would help is to connect your fringe with the rest of your hair that way if it does move it look as if its all part of your style rather than a fringe that has gone wrong.
