Hiya

I am not a hairdresser but I had a very similar problem to you when I took out my hair extensions and what was left was so so thin and stringy. I used moroccan rhassoul clay. It can be bought in powdered form. It is a natural thickener and moisturiser both to hair and skin. I added a couple of tablespoons of rhassoul clay powder to my shampoo and mixed it up in the palm of my hand and applied it through my hair. I left it a couple of minutes and rinsed out. Afterwards I added the same amount to the conditioner and applied and rinsed out. You will find that you hair will be much much thicker. You can get it for a few quid either online or from ebay. Either that or you can spend a small fortune on a "professional" product.

Lee stafford hair growth treatment!!!!!! More than thickening it works on length , i use it and i have loads of friends who do too and it does work!! I would go to bed and because of the condition of my hair i would always wake up with a birds nest at the back but i dont get this now because the condition of my hair is better!!

Amla oil is also good, its what indian women use to thicken their hair and i feel this works too.. i dont think there is a miracle gro for hair though as i have fine hair naturally and always lust after massive thick hair!!! There are just things to help a little bit :(
Im hoping the lee stafford will eliminate the need for me having hair extentions as i have had them before and suffered the same misfortune of feeling like i have literally 2 wisps left!!

All i can say is a good cut and lots of tlc, less over processing and patience!!!

Good luck!! xx

Hi there

You will probably need to keep using it till more hair grows in. They never tell you the extent to which extensions wreck your hair do they :(. The only plus side is that rhassoul clay is cheap.

To be quite honest getting those stringy ends cut off will make your hair look better than keeping hold of them for the sake of not wanting to lose length. I made that mistake:o

How people like jordan can wear them continuously without any obvious damage I dont know. If someone could tell me the secret,I would love to hear.

dnt no if this will help you be in salon we used a loreal product called Fiberceutic Masque its like botox for the hair i think you can get it on ebay or in salon but not sure on in salon price as they varie. if youve got normal thickness hair you buy the masque with it or if you have fine hair there is a seperate conditioner its a bit pricey but its fab it also gives u lift if you like your hair with a bit of volume but everyone we used it on with fine hair said it felt alot thicker and it last i think for up to 8 washes hope this helps:)

Ohhhh no bet your not looking forward to that or it'll be nice if they come up with something to remove hair extension without damaging them making your hair feel thinner after afterwards, thanks for the recommendation xx:D

Thanks for that sounds good i wash my hair every couple of days so would last a couple of weeks had a look it is a bit pricey but if it lasts 8 washes the tub would last for ages and be worth it will look into it, like the sound of that botox for hair xx
