Jo asks:
I recently had my hair layered and it looks way too thin now. It wasn't thick before but it was decent. Will it thicken back up again and how can I help it along?

Sorry to hear about your hair it can seem thicker if you brought the length up and cut some of those layers out only it means going shorter with your hair. There are also vitamins that help promote hair growth, these can be found at Holland and Barratt and are for hair, skin and nails. The vitamin sea kelp is also very good. A good stylist can use layers to either thin out the hair, texturise the hair or make hair appear thicker, look around for a good salon it may mean a little more expense however itís worth while because when you look good you feel great.

Adrienne asks:
I have recently had an awful experience with the hair extensions that have been put in my hair. I have recently had them taken out and they are left with glue in and are extremely knotted, I am so scared to brush it, as itís so tangled. I had the micro bead extensions placed in, and the lady used the pre bonded hair extensions. I really donít know what to do and also how can I report this lady who works privately. My hair is such a mess now and I am worried that I will have to cut it short.

I am sorry that you have had such a negative and traumatic experience after having pre-bonded hair extensions applied by an independent.

Hundreds of people all over the world have various hair extensions applied using very different techniques. From time to time a small percentage experience incorrect application, poor quality products, unqualified technicians, destructive removal techniques that damage hair and mis-information that results in their hair extensions reacting to certain products or mis-treatment. ...More >

Which ever one of these it is, it is not very nice when it happens to your hair. If you still currently have some residue of bond left in your hair my advice is as follows:

Try to identify a qualified hair extension technician that has been successfully working with clients for at least 12 months to help you professionally remove the residue of the glue.

If you are not able to locate someone within your region to help you, perhaps you can send me an email and I will try to point you in the right direction.

You can also help yourself to remove the residue of the bond by following these steps:

You will need to purchase some Ultimate bond adhesive remover (non oil based)

You will also need to purchase a bond disconnector pliers. Purchase a good quality brush that will not pull your hair out. The hair extension brushes are good for this and can be purchased from our website. When you receive them you will need to spray the adhesive remover on each section, leave for 3 minutes, and then clamp each section with the disconnector and watch the bond dissolve and break away. Do not pull hair, if bond does not break away, use more of the adhesive remover. When you have finished, apply a good quality shampoo with conditioner to your hair before you wet it. Leave the shampoo on for 10 minutes, and then wash out.

Repeat washing your hair a couple of times and brushing it with the brush until all residue of the bond has gone. Let your hair dry naturally, and then spray in some leave in conditioner.

Your hair has been traumatised, so if you can give it a rest for at least a week before you do anything to it, this will help

My Hairdresser has made a mess of my hair she has left me with short and long bits in my hair I use GHDs which makes a difference.

It sounds to me your stylist has attempted to layer your hair and unfortunately has been unsuccessful in doing so. This means that your hair cut is very disconnected, long bits-short bits etc. I suggest you go to a good respectable salon and have a consultation with a stylist (this will be free) explain how you feel with your hair and they will be able to help put right your layering problem. Personally I think that your layers need to be blended together, this will make handling and styling your hair a lot easier. I know you said using irons rescue the problem however long term this will damage and weaken your hair if the layers are not correct. Donít forget to use a heat protection product when using irons at all times.
