Laura asks:
For the past 6-8 months I've noticed my hair get gradually more and more greasy. Now it is greasy all the time, and especially bad after it's just been washed! I've always had highlighted hair so it always used to be dry if anything. I've always used top products recommended by my hairdresser which has always been ok. But since the problem has started I've tried clarifying shampoos and using a light conditioner. I only wash my hair twice a week so I don't over wash it. I thought maybe it could be product build up on my hair as it feels sticky and hard when I try to dry it after washing sometimes. If it is this what can I do to make my hair return to normal? Or do you have any other suggestions that could help? I've just had my hair coloured again recently and itís already looking dull. Also, it takes forever to dry.

Greasy hair can be such a nightmare because many products will just add to the build-up in your hair and may make it even greasier. By washing your hair twice a week you may actually have been making the greasiness worse! I would recommend you wash your hair every other day with a gentle shampoo and conditioner: one like my Colour Love shampoo and conditioner that is not only formulated to protect and enhance your new colour, but it is also specifically designed for over-stressed hair like yours. Make sure you shampoo twice really well, so that you are properly cleansing the scalp, and only apply the conditioner to the ends. Hopefully by following this routine you should take out some of the grease and put some nourishment back into your hair! Thereís no magic wand to get rid of greasy hair, but if you are in desperate need of a quick fix in between washes get your hands on some of my Poker Straight Dry Shampoo. Simply spray from about 16 cm into the root area that needs refreshing and by gently rubbing away the excess powder with your fingers; youíll be left with gorgeous smelling hair thatís full of body and volume

Becky asks:
I wonder if you could help me? I am 16 and am currently growing my hair out for my cousinís wedding. Itís getting pretty long now, in the middle of my bust and shoulders. Itís kind of wavy and I have layers and shorter sections at the front. I want a complete change of style for the summer. My face is oval shaped, but I have very defined cheek bones. I am plumpish too. What would you suggest?

If you have an oval faces try not to opt for a style that is too long, as this will drag down your features. I would say you can go as long as shoulder length with lots of volume, so itís probably a good idea to have a bit of a chop before the wedding. Your face is a very versatile shape and is on par with the heart shaped girls, so youíre super lucky in that there are quite a few style options you can choose from. Make sure your layers are shorter around the face to give the illusion of a more rounded jaw line. I wouldnít recommend blunt lines as they can be too harsh for your face shape - incorporate some tailored lines with softer edges to suit your body shape you could adapt the super trendy sleek sharp bob with a fringe, by having a longer length at the front and a softer side fringe. You could also either go wavy or straight: if you opt for the poker straight look accentuate the sleekness with a quick spritz of my Shine Head Shine Spray (£5.99 75ml Boots)

Frances asks:
I have patchy grey hair and have had it coloured all over using L'Oreal Majirel dark Blonde by my home visit hairdresser who I have used for many years but the result is always the same - the colour doesn't last and the crown always looks a different colour from the rest of my hair. Also it's limp and dry after the first wash. Is their a brand of colour that you could recommend where the colour would stay in longer and with more body?

It sounds like your hair maybe very resistant to colour, so after a short period of time the colour fades very quickly. You could try having your hair pre softened, which will help open the cuticles of the hair and hopefully the colour will penetrate deeper.

I would also recommend trying Wella Koleston Perfect colour range to see if you get a better result.
