Hi, I am 44 years old and my hair seems to be getting thinner and thinner especially around my fringe area, the hair seems rather brittle around my temples, it get greasy really quick so I find I have to wash it everyday, to make it look acceptable I have to flow dry and straighten as otherwise itís rather frizzy even if I leave to dry naturally. I seem to loose a lot of hair when washing/drying more than 100, so washing everyday is making my problem worse, id love not to have to wash it everyday and for it to look thicker and healthier, itís mid length at present although I try and keep it just touching my shoulders as short hair doesnít suit me and if I grow it longer it look lank and lifeless, I have tried skin hair and nail supplements more 4 month now but no change, is there a shampoo that will reduce my hair getting so greasy and that promotes hair growth and strength? I did used to have really thick curly hair but fear the straighteners over the years have done major damage.

Well done for taking the supplements, donít give up as there will be a difference you just need them as well as a combination of other things. ...More >
I would suggest you take a look at the following you may find the documents above helpful:
- Take a look at your diet as sometimes adding in a few vital nutrient rich foods can make a difference
- Ask in a professional salon for a protein based shampoo, or if you want to select one yourself choose a formula where the liquid is clear not opaque as still will mean it doesnít contain to many conditioning ingredients that will make the hair greasy
- Use dry shampoo, there are now coloured versions which are dry for keeping your hair looking fresh and adding a little volume
- Try not to touch your hair too much throughout the day as it can become a habit and makes the hair greasy more quickly
- This one sounds crazy but be careful applying your moisturizer, it again can make the hair greasy but there has been linked to potential thinning hair lines on women
- If you take medication, perhaps consult your doctor as there are so many that have side effects that can seriously effect hair such as contraceptive pills especially if they have been taken over a long period of time Have a trim, use a treatment mask at least weekly and Iím sure over the next month or 2 you will see improvement, if you donít perhaps consult a trichologist and they will carry out some blood tests and help you get to the bottom of the problem.

I have my hair coloured to a lovely ash blonde shade but within a fortnight it goes lighter and lighter - so annoying - I then use purple rinse on it - which helps - I am 63 years old and presume my real hair is going grey is this the reason it lightens please? Thanks

The tone of the colour always fades first as it is deposited last on the hair. Using a silver conditioner on a regular basis will help control the fade and you can also try processing the colour a little longer as well as reducing the amount of developer slightly when you mix the formula. Both of these steps should increase the tonal deposit of the colour. ...More >
Good luck x

Hello, I have red violet hair with red highlights (black originally then bleached).
I would like to refresh the colour because it fades quickly. Iím not sure whether to choose Redken Shades EQ Colour Gloss in Sangria or Merlot. I also have some grey in my roots (roots are black now with grey). What else shall I mix? I donít want the hair to be so dark, I want it a subtle red violet shade as it was when I first dyed it. Do I need to mix it with another colour to get rid of the grey?
Also, Can I use a cream developer volume 10 (3%) with the Redken Shades EQ Colour Gloss? Will it work? And in which ratio? Or only the Redken processor will work?
|Answered By: |
Firstly the Redken shades EQ canít be mixed with the 10 vol developer, so you will need to refresh the middle, lengths and ends of your hair with the choosen colour with the shades EQ and the relevant developer. The roots will have to coloured seperatly to cover the grey with 10 or 20 vol developer. If you do the root colour first you can do the shades EQ all over. I would choose a medium red brown as the root colour. ...More >
