I have spent hours money and time looking for advice or products for shoulder length greasy fine hair that was bleached blonde that has now been coloured mid brown to try and get some life back into it, I have had it layered and I must now have 2 inches of my own healthy hair (some grey) and rest coloured, I have to wash it everyday because the roots are so greasy but the ends are so dry and frizzy and when you rub the ends between your index finger and thumb you can hear the dryness on the ends. I have tried leaving it a day without washing it but by lunch time it separates and starts getting itchy and looks awful, I have tried putting a bit of talcum powder at the roots to last a bit longer but it makes it looks worse and very dull. I have tried serum but it makes it look very flat and limp. I am starting to think may be I should wash it use a conditioner to get the knots out and blow dry it at the roots to dry it out but I know I will end up cutting the ends more often but I like having longish hair I do not suit short hair at all - what do I do I hate my hair, please help?

I would like to recommend that you wash your hair everyday firstly, I believe the oil that you have, which are a body secretion, are not good for you as they will increase your bacterial floral also the over production of yeast on your scalp producing dandruff and also irritation and in some cases also infection of the follicle. I would advise you to use a shampoo for oily hair

I have fine hair and I use hair colouring products to cover the grey roots. I use shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair. Now I have also got a dandruff problem. What shampoo and conditioner do you suggest. Plus how often should I shampoo?
|Answered By: |
I would recommend you ask your hairdresser to recommend a good quality professional shampoo and conditioner which will not affect the colour but also target your problem. It may not be dandruff, you may not be rinsing your hair enough so make sure you rinse for a couple of minutes to remove all the shampoo and conditioner. Shampooing is a personal decision but if you can give your hair a miss every other day that is always best. If you have to wash it everyday, just try rinsing your hair rather than using shampoo.

I had my hair done for my sisters wedding, my sister wanted me to have it pulled back with long curls falling down my back, after several tries, I still had straight hair, the curls would be falling out before I got out the door. The hairdresser said that I have problem hair and I will never be able to have curls. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it, can anyone tell me if there is anything I can do to make my problem hair hold curls?

It is true that some hair is more resistant to being curled but we have never had anyone whose curls are coming out before they leave the salon. We do a technique with GHD irons and GHD products where the curls that we achieve would definitely stay in for a couple of hours at least. It does take quite a while to do but the results are fabulous. Is your hair coloured? Sometimes if your hair is resistant and with no colour it does make it more difficult to curl. Colour tends to soften resistant hair and make is easier to mould. You could also look to have some movement put in your hair with a soft perm result if you are looking to have permanent curls.
