Ann Graham asks:
I do not use colourants of any kind on my hair. I had a hairdresser at the house to put my long but fine hair up for a wedding. I had it washed and conditioned ready using my usual products. Just before leaving for the wedding I noticed an unusual smell from my hair much like perming solution or peroxide and there was a tinge of gold almost green in my hair. The next day I washed my hair and the smell was worse and my hair very dry and damaged. The hairdresser said she had not used anything but hairspray on my hair. I was wondering what could have caused my hair to be like this. My daughter who used to be a hairdresser has cut my hair for me says that something has been put on my hair to damage it so much. Can you please help Thank you

Dear Ann, yes this seems very unusual as it sounds like a chemical reaction has occurred causing the hair to become dry ! I can only guess that she may have used a styling product or hair spray that reacted with your products. The reaction will have caused the hair to lift slightly .Do you swim a lot? Build up of chlorine on your hair could react. Do you use a coloured shampoo or henna products as may also react. I suggest deep conditioning and regular cutting to remove the damaged hair.

Danielle Mee asks:
I wanted to ask for some advice. I have thick highlighted hair which is just below shoulder in length. It is not dry or damaged but can get greasy on scalp. Is dark blonde with light blonde highlights through. I can not for the life of me find any shampoo or conditioner that work. I just wandered if there was any that could be recommended?

One thing most people make the mistake of is by using a moisturising shampoo as they have coloured hair, buy one for normal hair or greasy hair the best ones and see through rather than opaque. Use a moisturising conditioner but just from your ears done and make sure you comb it through. Dry shampoo is a must as well, also if you blowdry use an acrylic brush rather than a bristle brush that way you arenít encouraging more than required moisture from the scalp.

Laura asks:
When I go on a (Princess) cruise, my hair becomes extra greasy, extra fast. I wash it daily as always with my usual shampoo and conditioner. My hair is coloured and naturally straight. How can I prevent this weighed-down greasy look on my next cruise in a month?

I think the reason for this will be that water on the ship which is probably too soft which can cause hair to become greasy. I would suggest investing in a specific shampoo for hair that can go greasy and try to only wash your hair in luke warm to cold water if possible as hot water will make your scalp produce more natural oils that cause the greasy look.
