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

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.

Faiza asks:
I just wanted to ask, I have too many grey hairs, my family says not to dye them, they think the situation will turn out to be worse, can please give me some advice on whether I should use a dye or not and if I should then which one would be best for me.

Having your hair coloured does not make the situation worse, but once you start it is something that you will need to keep having done.

At this stage I would advise booking a free consultation at your hairdressers so they can see your hair. By the sounds of it I would recommend starting with a semi permanent colour which will wash out over a period of time. This way if you donít like it youíre not stuck with it and it is also very gentle on the hair.
