Why is it we are never happy with what we have when it comes to our hair?  I am always trying out new products, looking to find the perfect one!  Here are a few tips for fine hair.

Eight top tips for fine hair

1. It is best to wash your hair in the morning - fine hair is at its best when it is clean.
2. When using a conditioner always make sure you use it from the middle of your hair down to the ends - applying conditioner to the roots will only weigh the hair down and make it flat.
3. Styling products are great for fine hair.  There are lots of products you can spray onto the roots of your hair to give it a boost.  Hair dust is very good for giving roots volume - you don't want anything too heavy.  Hair mousse is very good for adding volume, it acts by swelling the hair shaft which makes the hair look and feel thicker.
4. When blow-drying the hair, tip your head upside down and blast the roots - this will give you extra root lift.  Once the hair is 50% dry then style as normal.
5. When blow-drying the hair always section it off.  Start underneath by taking a section.  Always allow the hair to cool before taking the next section.  Choose a rounded hair brush with a metal barrel, these are very good because the metal barrel heats up quicker and acts as a heat conductor making blow-drying quicker, and giving a longer lasting result.
6. Colouring fine hair can be a great idea.  Adding 2-3 different shades will break up the base colour and make the hair look a lot thicker.
7. There are also lots of styling appliances out there to help give that extra bit of extra volume.
8. A few rows of hair extensions are always a good way to add that extra bit of volume.

What are the benefits of having Hair Extensions?

The thing I love about my job is seeing the way Hair Extensions can transform the way people feel about themselves.

It is amazing what results you can achieve by adding volume, length or colour.

Hair Extensions are a great way to create that instant new look!

Five reasons for having Hair Extensions

  1. If you struggle to grow your natural hair.
  2. When hair is really fine and needs that extra volume.
  3. They are a great way to change your look and boost your confidence in an instant.
  4. Best solution to deal with a bad haircut.
  5. Great way to add hi-light effects without having to bleach your natural hair.

Are Hair Extensions suitable for everyone?

Hair Extensions are suitable for most types of hair.

A consultation should always be carried out before having hair extensions fitted, this will ensure your hair is suitable for extensions, check the colour match, help to decide on the look you wish to achieve, and answer any questions regarding aftercare.

Most of you must of heard about the Tangle Teezer?

I came across the Tangle Teezer a few years ago and have used one ever since.

I remember giving a bright pink one to my friend to try, and she looked and it and said "what is it?"  I said "just try it".  Over the next few weeks she didn’t mentioned it and I had forgotten all about it, then I got this phone call, “OMG that tangle thingy is brilliant!”  She told me she had just decided to try the Tangle Teezer out before throwing it away. Charming!!

The Tangle Teezer is a brilliant little tool which detangles the hair in minutes.  It is perfect to use on Hair Extensions as it helps to prevent matting around the bonds keeping hair tangle free.  The Tangle Teezer glides through the hair from roots to tips removing any tangles as it goes, it also produces great back-brushing results creating extra body at the roots.

Five good reasons to try the Tangle Teezer

  1. Detangles hair in no time.
  2. Effortlessly brushes out back-brushing.
  3. Soothes stressed scalps.
  4. Amazing for grooming and detangling Hair Extensions.
  5. Handy compact size great to pop in your handbag.

Go on. Why not give one a try?  You won't be disappointed!

Have you heard the saying "you only get what you pay for?"  Well I have to say when it comes to Hair Extensions, it is absolutely true.

The amount of phone calls I am getting lately asking for advice about Hair Extensions which people are not happy with is unbelievable.

In the last few weeks I have seen some shocking Hair Extensions - one where two bonds were applied to one section of hair to save time!  Bad colour matching.  Cheap hair which has turned into a bird’s nest. And with no aftercare advice!

I have also been asked if I can cut someone's Hair Extensions because the person who applied them was not a hairdresser!!!

PLEASE, when thinking about having Hair Extensions check that the person is a fully qualified hairdresser and is trained in a method of Hair Extensions, and ask to see their certificates!
