Hope you may be able to help me, for years I have had greasy hair, I have tried all the shampoo’s going, from the cheap ones up to the more expensive ones, once its been washed, a few hours later, its full of grease again, and its the fringe that tends to go first, I have spent a fortune, and nothing works, I have tried everything, please Lee, do you have any advice for me, I don’t know what to do

I get loads of questions about greasy hair and even though there is no magic remedy for this problem, there are many things you can do to help.
Greasy hair can seem like a Catch 22 situation: you wash your hair regularly to get rid of the build up but this constant washing actually encourages the production of sebum (the nasty stuff that actually makes hair greasy) and worsens the situation. ...More >
Wash hair every other day with a cleansing shampoo - try my brand new Bling Hair Rehab Detox Shampoo which gently removes stubborn build up and pollution. Remember to shampoo 2-3 times whenever you wash your hair as well; this’ll make it feel fresher for longer.
Follow with a light conditioner like my Bling Hair Rehab Intense Conditioner but try to avoid applying this to your roots to avoid that grease creeping in
The fringe is always the first area to get greasy because it sits closest to your forehead, so if you’re at home, just pin it back to get it off your face. If you’re out, though, and want to keep your fringe down, I would recommend a quick spritz of my Poker Straight Dry Shampoo for Oily Roots. This will revitalise and refresh the root area, reducing the greasy appearance and making it look bouncy and clean. Keep a mini one in your handbag and apply whenever you feel the grease building up.

I have been having my hair relaxed for the past 2 years but still carried on straightening it every other day. My hair is now so damaged that I have lots of split ends and breakage every time I brush my hair. My hair is quite thin as I lose a lot. I have been using shampoo and conditioner from the Nioxin range as well as their styling products. My hairdresser has recommended a steam conditioning treatment which I will be having next week. She also advised me to buy the T3 Wet to Dry Straighteners. I do not know if they will be suitable for my hair though.

It sounds like your hair needs a long holiday! If you chemically straighten your hair do you still need to straighten it with heat every other day? I think you should give either the relaxing or the heat straightening a miss and focus on getting your hair back in good condition. Your hairdressers suggestion about steam treatments is good, have a few of these to increase the moisture content of your hair, this will strengthen it and increase its elasticity, thus greatly reducing the breakage you have been experiencing. Also, the Wet2Straight from Remington is a very good hair straightener that will straighten your hair excellently whilst reducing the damage that, typically, conventional hair straighteners cause. Also, use rich, deep penetrating reconditioning treatments a hope a couple of times a week. Your hair will soon start to improve, stop breaking and grow longer

I have a client who is a natural red head, she dyed her hair red and its now wishy washy red/pink all over apart from 4 inches from her scalp which is still a deep red. She wants to go back to being an obvious bright ginger as she called it. Her hair is extremely over processed so I said she would have to lose a good 5 inches off the ends. After taking some test cuttings, I tried one with a mild cleansing bath which snapped after 5 mins the other I used colour touch 7/43 mixed with 0/34, this produced a deeper ginger colour, she wants it lighter and more vibrant though so I was thinking to maybe use the copier majicontrast to lift it using 6% on mid lengths and ends and a 9% on the redder root area? Followed by a deep condition. I just wondered what your thoughts are.iv only really been trained with wella products so would like some advice please.any help would be great.thankyou x

It sounds as though your client is really over-processing her hair which may be why your not getting the colour she wants. I would personally work on the condition of the hair rather than the colour for now. Majicontrast will give a more metallic colour to the hair as opposed to something that looks natural so until the condition of your client’s hair improves I would steer clear of any more colouring.
