Since my early 20ís (20 years ago) my hair has got thinner and frizzier. Its shoulder length. Each morning I wake up with ridiculous bed head - greasy, stinking up, cannot be styled in anyway; so I end up washing, blowing and straightening every day which is not good for the hair and a lot of time! Its so bad it is embarrassing with guests staying so I end up getting up earlier to shower etc. I long for the day to just as least be able to get up and not have to shower before going to the gym! What can I do?

Poor you, the list I can suggest is a bit of an endless one but here are a few things to try: - Brush your hair before going to bed and apply dry shampoo at the root area, this will tame the hair and reduce oil before bed - Have a cotton pillow case as silk ones encourage moisture - Change your shampoo to a protein based one that is clear and use a spray leave in conditioner, this will mean your hair gets less greasy - Try sleeping in soft rollers as they are very comfy and will tame the frizz as well as give you body, still do all of the above - Check your diet is protein rich and I suggest taking a supplement Its all about maximising your hair potential, we can change it but can make the best of it. It will take a couple of months to notice a real difference but you will. Good luck

Hi When I dye my hair, either at home or in a salon, random bits dissolve at the scalp and nobody seems to know why. My hair is in relatively good condition. My scalp is somewhat dry though, lots of tiny flakes (not dandruff). No matter what I try I cannot get this dryness under control. Could this possibly be causing the hair to dissolve in random places whenever I dye it? Thank you in advance

I am afraid I canít shed any light regarding the dissolving colour, but I suggest that perhaps you need more moisture on your scalp. Massage some almond or coconut oil, just a teaspoon into your scalp before bed and sleep on an old pillow case. Shampoo 3 times and rinse really thoroughly before conditioning. I would do this once per week for a month as well as take a fish oil supplement. It may take 6 weeks but I am sure you will see improvement in the dry flakes. As far as the colour is concerned I suggest you ask the stylist to re apply it to the areas that look like they are dissolving throughout the processing time this should mean it actually deposits and you get a more uniform colour result. ...More >

Iím 57 and have short hair ,my hair is really soft and has no body at all and Iím really finding it hard to style .even if I have high lights it is still so soft and lifeless. please can you help me !

I would suggest that you use a protein shampoo, and a spray leave in conditioner as that way you arenít adding to much moisture to your hair and making it even softer. Using dry shampoo after you have blow-dried your hair is also a good way to make hair have a bit more body and texture. You spray a little bit into the root area of dry hair and as itís a clay or chalk base it absorbs moisture from the scalp and supports the roots a little like hair spray. ...More >
