Rachel asks:
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.

Ella asks:
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 >

Please come back to me if you need more help.

Daylan asks:
I put a duke in my hair which is like a perm but it makes your hair curly and in about two - three weeks later I want bleach and dye my hair. So my question is that too much for my hair ? Will it fall out ? Or mess up my curly hair ?

Hi Daylan, As long as your hair is in good condition and you donít over process the bleach you will be fine. Make sure you use a treatment mask weekly to maintain the condition of your hair too. Thanks
