Carrie asks:
I have been on Thyroxine for 4 years, my hair used to be so thick and it is now getting very thin mainly on the top it is really getting me down.

Sorry to hear that you hair seems to be thinning at the moment. One thing we do know for sure is that ones hair has always been a good indication of ones overall health issues. Also with Thyroxine you would normally be doing regular blood tests through your doctor (a couple of times a year or so) to check on things to see how you are doing on the medication and also to check the dosage is right for you. You are most probably feeling fatigue with the medication; but my suggestion would be consult with your doctor to check dosage and if they see a relationship to your overall health and hair situation. We tend to sit back and try to deal with things ourselves as we "donít want to bother the doctor"....Well bother the doctor!! Thatís what theyíre there for. Even if itís just for piece of mind.

Good luck with everything





Cora asks:
Well letís start I have an Oval shaped face brown average thickness hair a couple inches below my shoulders and a cowlick on the left front side of my face. I want side swept bangs but Iím not sure what the best style would be to get with this.

Well the most sort after face shape to take basically any style is oval; so well done! As for the side swept fringe (bang) the strength of the ícow lickí will really determine weather this is possible. A good way to see how you hair will react is too take a thick parting across the front of you forehead and let the hair fall on your face and see how much lift you have? Increase the amount of hair until the weight of the hair allows the hair to sit flat. If you do not get to a point of it sitting, could well be the ílickí is too strong and you wonít want the constant hassle of flattening it every day. If it is something you really want, you could always look at chemically straightening the fringe area of course over several months the hair will begin to lift again, but you might be on to a new style by then







Tracey asks:
I have fine dark blonde/mousey bob style hair and pale skin. It looks dull and boring, so I would like to lighten it slightly, especially round the fringe and face. I want inexpensive and low maintenance with my hair looking as natural as possible. What would you suggest?

Martin HillierAnswered By:

The good thing is you know what you want. Wanting to lighten up around the front are of the hair is a nice way to open the face shape up. Also your hair being ímouseyí is the ideal tone to have blonde and not show such a strong regrowth, so you have that going for you too. ...More >

I would suggest consulting with a local hairdresser you feel comfortable with and let them know that you are looking at possibly hi-lighting around the front area; but just a couple of shades lighter than your natural tone. This way you brighten the overall look, but wonít have to worry about a strong regrowth.

Also remember íThe lighter you go the more the regrowth will show. If you like the results may be you will begin to lighten a bit more over the summer; but at least it will be on your terms...Enjoy!
