Johnny Clifford asks:
Rain seems to make my hair look great. I have fine hair the rain gives it body. Why?

Your not the first person to ask me this question. I believe its the fact that rain water is gentle, it is completely different to the water you use to wash your own hair with, which has chlorine in it that can dry out your own hair, especially if your hair is already quite fine. The cool breeze that usually accompanies the rain then it dry with a natural kink that if you are after volume looks great. My own hair always seems to go quite curly at the ends if I have been out in the rain and I love it.

Samie asks:
I have thick hair that goes to about my chest. Throughout the day, even if Iíve washed the night before, my hair starts to get limp, stringy, and greasy. Iíve tried dry shampoo and baby powder, but neither seem to be working, it just makes my hair chalky in addition to looking gross and oily. What can I do???

Hi Samie,

It sounds like you hair is prone to getting oily which is quite common, and nothing to worry over, I would recommend that you start to manage this by changing your homecare regime to something designed specifically to tackle greasy roots. Kerastase bain divalent is by far the best product on the market for this type of hair in my opinion. The shampoo is very concentrated so only requires a small amount to work (roughly the size of a fifty pence piece), it is not designed to lather on the first shampoo so donít worry of it doesnít foam up. Spread the shampoo with the flats of your hands accross the whole of your head, if itís particularly greasy use less water on the first shampoo as this will dilute the product. Once the shampoo has been spread accross the hair leave it for a minute before massaging or scrubbing, this will allow the product to work by it self and over massging can encourage the sebaceous gland to produce more oil throughout the day. I would give it 2 shampoos and then, if conditioner is needed, use something really light and just on the ends of the hair to detangle and rinse straight away. Keep the conditioner away from the roots. ...More >

I would also recommend drying your hair rather than it to dry naturally but avoid over working it, so blast dry the majority, if not all, and style as you like, drying it off rather than leaving it to dry tends dry out the hair a little bit so makes it less greasy looking.

The cut make also be weighing your hair down by the sounds of things, having a bit of scaffolding or shape to pull the hair away from the face might also give it more life and stop it feeling so dull and limp. Colour is also a great way to dry out oily roots whenever my hair needs colouring it tends to be more oily so again this could be something you might like to consider to give it a bit more hold and body.

Finally, whilst dry shampoos are great for absorbing grease i agree they can make your hair look dull and chalky, tec ni art do a fantastic hairspray in their new wild stylers range called next day hair which is a spray that contains a powder. Spray directly into the roots section by section to give body and hold without the chalky texture youíve been experiencing. This product is great as little top up through the day if youíve noticed your hair going a bit limp.

I hope this all helps and you start to see some results.

Jen asks:
I have very fine, thin hair that lays flat no matter even with spray gels, etc. And although my scalp gets oily, my hair can often look like straw. I have tried many things to give my flat, lifeless hair body, without weighing it down and drying it out. It is cut in a chin length bob. But every day is a bad hair day. I look awful.

For fine hair like yours that lies very flat I would strongly recommend the Wella System Professional Volumize range and Perfect hair. These products are exactly what you need to hopefully help your issue with fine hair.
