Although your friends are envious of your voluminous hair, some mornings you would gladly trade it in for flat locks. Dryness, frizz, untameable volume... It does come with minor annoyances that makes your life difficult. However, rest assured, your hair is not a lost cause. There are lots of tips to get your thick hair back in tip-top condition and full of vitality once more.

Start by choosing a haircut suited to your hair type. Say goodbye to ultra-short haircuts at the risk of ending up with a rather unflattering "helmet hair" effect, and layers which pump up the volume. Instead opt for thinned-out haircuts, which are ideal for reducing the thickness. Would you like a fringe? No problem, as long as it helps reduce the volume of the whole hairstyle, such as a curtain fringe. Once styled to your satisfaction, it's time to take care of your thick hair, which generally tends to be very dry. Try-out detangling products, masks and other nourishing treatments. If despite their density your locks are not lacking in hydration, use pH neutral shampoos and conditioners. The important thing is to tailor your haircare regime to your hair type. If you have thick hair, there is always one saying: be generous with the amount of product you apply so you can properly spread it out over the entirety of your hair. The very important final step: detangling. Due to its high density, thick hair is prone to knots. A wide tooth comb will help you do the job much more easily.

In this feature article you will find even more advice on how to enhance your thick hair.

Fragile in nature and often limp and lifeless, is your fine hair making your life difficult? Rest assured, your locks are not a lost cause! You simply need to take a few measures to prevent your hair from causing you problems.

Regarding your haircut, opt for a short style. A long bob, chin-length hair or a boyish pixie style are the dream haircuts to minimise how fine your hair looks. The same goes for men: the shorter the haircut the better! Whatever your hair's length, layers are an excellent option for creating more volume, providing they are put in carefully so as to not thin out the hair too much. Otherwise, this might make your hair more brittle. Furthermore, do not deprive yourself of a fringe - if you choose the right one it can work wonders and make your locks look thicker.

As for products, choose them wisely by opting for targeted formulations which can boost volume from the very first wash! Not forgetting a lightweight mask which will nourish your hair without weighing it down. Moreover, do not overlook the importance of a colouring treatment! An array of shades can add depth to the cut for hair that looks full of body. Finally, go for hairstyles which are perfectly suited to your hair type: a wavy blow-dried style which gives you bigger hair than a classic blow-dry; a half-ponytail with a quiff, rather than a slicked-back look; or curls rather then straightened locks... Consider cheating with styling products which coat and thicken the hair fibre. They give your locks extra hold. Furthermore, dare to try out accessories such as foam donuts which can create a hairstyle full of volume in the blink of an eye. Clever!

Going for a swim at the beach or in the pool or having a few naps in the sun: in summer your daily routine changes.... As should your hair regime! Whatever you do, don't let your hair get damaged by UV rays, sand, salt and chlorine which dry out and weaken your locks. Instead, you can opt for an array of targeted treatments to protect and take care of your hair.

What's the star haircare product to use this summer? Sun protection gel of course! Yes, the sun does boost keratin production and promote growth whilst giving your locks pretty golden highlights. However, in high doses, it damages your hair just as much as it does your skin. Prevent any unpleasant surprises in autumn by using a treatment which is able to block out UV rays.

And to complete your hair regime this summer season, more than ever choose a shampoo suited to frequent washes (with a mild formulation) and treatments targeted to your hair type to keep your locks looking their best. Is your hair dry, fine or long and therefore more fragile? Swap your hydrating treatments for highly nourishing products. They minimise the impact of the constant onslaught your hair is subject to, helping to prevent the 'straw effect'. Are you a fan of colouring treatments? Opt for formulations rich in vitamins to bond the pigments to the hair fibre and to prevent your colour from washing out. Finally, deal with your greasy roots problem which is aggravated by the heat: a re-balancing treatment is a must during the summer months.

In this feature, you will find all of our advice on choosing the right hair treatments this summer!

Do you wish to get a bob cut, but never do things by halves so have decided to go for the short version? Before saying goodbye to your locks, make sure you are prepared to live with your new look, as a short bob means that you need to be disciplined about upkeep. If getting regular touch-ups at the salon to keep your cut looking flawless does not bother you, go ahead and take the plunge!

The short bob has got everything going for it to give you a great new look, provided the style is carefully chosen to enhance your features and your hair type. Unstructured or layered versions prevent your bob from getting that dense 'helmet head' effect and they can add volume to fine hair and boost the bounce of natural curls. Playing with different lengths can work wonders, no matter what your desired look! A-line or asymmetrical versions create a bolder look. The short bob is ideal for adding character to finer features. It also gives the timeless bob cut a modern and daring edge. Ultra-short blunt versions create an irresistibly retro style which flatters oval face shapes and goes wonderfully with square jaws, further enhancing their androgynous look. With the added a twist of a fringe, the bob becomes structured. This is perfect way to conceal a large forehead in the blink of an eye.

Once you have found the perfect short bob, it is down to you to try out lots of different hairstyles. Dare to try out glamorous curls, a wavy rock chick vibe or a wet look which will completely transform your hairstyle.

As for anyone who is still undecided, there is still the faux bob which you can rock whenever you fancy.

Are you a big fan of colouring your hair? If so, you are most likely familiar with the same old ordeal every month: your roots starting to show as soon as your hair grows out.

Ideally, you should get them touched up at the salon every six weeks so that they don't show too much. However, when short on time or money, lots of women postpone their trip to the hairdresser. The result: your roots grow out and become more visible. Luckily, this is the current trend! However, the greater the contrast between your base and the colouring treatment, the more your roots are visible and the harder it will be to live with between colouring treatments.

The best way to blend in the demarcation between your coloured hair and natural roots is a tone-on-tone colouring treatment. This will gradually fade and will help prevent that unsightly 'dark roots look'. Fortunately, there are solutions for those who do not wish to change their hair colouring habits.

To conceal your roots whilst waiting for your next colouring treatment, you have several options:

- use clever accessories (such as a headband to conceal your roots in the blink of an eye)

- choose smart hairstyles to make your roots go unnoticed

- curl your locks to blur the demarcation lines by creating movement in your hair

- tie up your locks with a slicked-back look at the front to make the section of growing-out roots look smaller

In this feature article, you will find all of our advice on how to best deal with your roots between colouring treatments and styling tips on how to conceal them!
