Pump up the volume I've been looking high and low for Nicky Clarke's Hairaromatherapy hair-thickening shampoo but without luck. I bought it in Britain and it comes in a shiny, silver bottle. I'm down to my last drop, help! Going Limp, Aberdeen The Dictator rules: Sorry, Flathead, Nicky Clarke products are no longer available in Hong Kong, so you'll have to find a substitute. First, assess the problem. It's likely your hair is 'fine', which doesn't mean 'good'. Other possible enemies are oily roots, product build-up and heavy conditioners. Before you start piling on more gunk, get rid of the residue with a clarifying shampoo such as Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo ($90; Mannings, Festival Walk, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong, tel: 2265 8377). Next, try a few light, daily shampoos made for your hair type such as Rosemary Mint shampoo by Aveda ($100; Aveda Lifestyle Day Spa, Hing Wai Building, 36 Queen's Road Central, tel: 3106 2868), followed by the brand's Light Elements styling and finishing products ($200 to $330). To increase body, try Neutrogena's Clean Volume shampoo ($59.90 each; Watson's, Festival Walk, tel: 2180 8481), Phyto's Phytovolume shampoo with yarrow extract ($100; Mannings), or Biolage's Energising Shampoo made with hops, capsicum and panthenol ($80; Mannings). If you can afford it, turn to haircare by another expert: J.F. Lazartigue (EL Beauty, Hing Wai Building 36 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2521 3291), including his Body Giving Shampoo ($188), Hair Volume Tonic ($265) or Hair Body Emulsion ($265). Stila at it I love Stila but can't find it in Hong Kong any more. Seibu and Joyce used to sell it but no longer. Does anyone sell Stila any more? Love Lost, Mongkok The Dictator: Okay, this is a question worth asking again. The last time we answered it, Stila had left us. Now, you can feed your Stila fix at the DFS Galleria in Sun Plaza (28 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2302 6600).
