Hi, I was hoping you might help. As a male I have very unusual hair and Iím struggling to find anything to help style it. I would define my hair as thinning, frizzing, and wiry. My ethnic background is Arab. It might be easier if I send you a photo of my hair so you can see it for yourself. Can you recommend anything to help me control and style it? Presently the best thing I have come up with is using a good quality organic shampoo and conditioner and I then style my hair with castor oil. Strange I know. But for some reason I have found castor oil to be the most effective thing to help me style my hair as Iíd like to. Although it is not perfect and often gives my hair an overly greasy finish. Iím hoping to find something that works better than castor oil! Thank you.

Hi Moutasim, May I suggest you use a moisture shampoo and conditioner and make sure you comb the conditioner through before rinsing. This will help smooth the cuticle and help make the hair look less frizzy. Then use some oil preferably almond in a treatment mask weekly, this will help the inner structure of your hair. Eat as much oily fish and plenty of vitamin D & E as eating a very balanced diet does help the hair. Maybe try a mini straightening iron they are so good so helping control the frizz and smoothing the hair, then use a light wax. Good luck

I need advice for both greasy and dry hair. When I am in the shower shampooing my hair feels dry then after I get out and blow dry my hair it feels really greasy, and usually after 2 to 3 days it gets worse. Also when I straighten it, the ends look dry but the hair feels greasy. Itís hard to explain. Could you please recommend what I should do, Iíve tried everything from changing shampoos to not using hairdryers, but nothingís working.

It sounds like you have a Ďcombinationí hair type, which is characterised by oily roots and dry ends, and is particularly common in long hair Ė the oils produced by the scalp donít reach the longer ends Ė and in finer hair, which tends to have more oil glands over the space of the scalp.
Combination hair can be easily treated with the right products and disguised with a few styling tricks. Firstly, start using a volumising shampoo and conditioner. These products are designed to give hair a lift by removing excess oil and build-up, so will help to tackle the excess sebum-production, and as they are designed to hydrate without adding weight, they will condition your dry ends without weighing down your locks. When it comes to styling, avoid oil-based products, which can make your roots greasier, but also avoid products that may further dry out your dry ends Ė products such as firm-hold hairsprays and mousses. Use a hydrating heat protective spray, just through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair before blow-drying, to protect your dry lengths from heat damage and to reduce the appearance of brittle ends. Finally, when youíve finished blow-drying and styling, spritz your hairbrush with a little dry shampoo, before running through your roots to absorb any excess grease and product build-up.

Iím 17 and I recently started using a sulphate free shampoo and washing my hair every-other day (rather than everyday) because I wanted to get rid of my frizzy-ish hair. But now mom is getting mad at me because my hair looks greasier than before... she has poor hair and I donít think she knows what sheís talking about. I just want my hair to not be frizzy or greasy.

Hi Ella, I think if you have fine hair thatís frizzy it maybe that the shampoo is too moisturising for your hair so making it look greasy.
You can use a sulphate free shampoo for fine, normal hair and use a treatment mask once a week to help beat the frizz. Donít apply treatments or conditioner to the top of your hair and leave the treatment for a maximum of 20 minutes before combing through and rinsing thoroughly and the conditioner is the same but just a few minutes to process. ...More >
