Laura asks:
For the past 6-8 months I've noticed my hair get gradually more and more greasy. Now it is greasy all the time, and especially bad after it's just been washed! I've always had highlighted hair so it always used to be dry if anything. I've always used top products recommended by my hairdresser which has always been ok. But since the problem has started I've tried clarifying shampoos and using a light conditioner. I only wash my hair twice a week so I don't over wash it. I thought maybe it could be product build up on my hair as it feels sticky and hard when I try to dry it after washing sometimes. If it is this what can I do to make my hair return to normal? Or do you have any other suggestions that could help? I've just had my hair coloured again recently and itís already looking dull. Also, it takes forever to dry.

Greasy hair can be such a nightmare because many products will just add to the build-up in your hair and may make it even greasier. By washing your hair twice a week you may actually have been making the greasiness worse! I would recommend you wash your hair every other day with a gentle shampoo and conditioner: one like my Colour Love shampoo and conditioner that is not only formulated to protect and enhance your new colour, but it is also specifically designed for over-stressed hair like yours. Make sure you shampoo twice really well, so that you are properly cleansing the scalp, and only apply the conditioner to the ends. Hopefully by following this routine you should take out some of the grease and put some nourishment back into your hair! Thereís no magic wand to get rid of greasy hair, but if you are in desperate need of a quick fix in between washes get your hands on some of my Poker Straight Dry Shampoo. Simply spray from about 16 cm into the root area that needs refreshing and by gently rubbing away the excess powder with your fingers; youíll be left with gorgeous smelling hair thatís full of body and volume

I have fine hair which tends to have kinks and goes wavy, I had it cut in a bob and would really like to wear it straight and smooth, what are the best products and tips to blow dry it straight.

The obvious solution to straight hair is straightening irons, BUT...... these can harm and damage the hair. Try whenever possible to blow dry using a round bristle brush keeping the dryer at all times blowing downwards, this will keep the hairs cuticles a lot smoother. The same applies if finger drying or rough drying. There are also products on the market to help achieve straighter hair, try Nicky Clarke smooth it over, and it comes in either a serum or cream like texture. Remember to use little, you can always use more.

Adrienne asks:
I have recently had an awful experience with the hair extensions that have been put in my hair. I have recently had them taken out and they are left with glue in and are extremely knotted, I am so scared to brush it, as itís so tangled. I had the micro bead extensions placed in, and the lady used the pre bonded hair extensions. I really donít know what to do and also how can I report this lady who works privately. My hair is such a mess now and I am worried that I will have to cut it short.

I am sorry that you have had such a negative and traumatic experience after having pre-bonded hair extensions applied by an independent.

Hundreds of people all over the world have various hair extensions applied using very different techniques. From time to time a small percentage experience incorrect application, poor quality products, unqualified technicians, destructive removal techniques that damage hair and mis-information that results in their hair extensions reacting to certain products or mis-treatment. ...More >

Which ever one of these it is, it is not very nice when it happens to your hair. If you still currently have some residue of bond left in your hair my advice is as follows:

Try to identify a qualified hair extension technician that has been successfully working with clients for at least 12 months to help you professionally remove the residue of the glue.

If you are not able to locate someone within your region to help you, perhaps you can send me an email and I will try to point you in the right direction.

You can also help yourself to remove the residue of the bond by following these steps:

You will need to purchase some Ultimate bond adhesive remover (non oil based)

You will also need to purchase a bond disconnector pliers. Purchase a good quality brush that will not pull your hair out. The hair extension brushes are good for this and can be purchased from our website. When you receive them you will need to spray the adhesive remover on each section, leave for 3 minutes, and then clamp each section with the disconnector and watch the bond dissolve and break away. Do not pull hair, if bond does not break away, use more of the adhesive remover. When you have finished, apply a good quality shampoo with conditioner to your hair before you wet it. Leave the shampoo on for 10 minutes, and then wash out.

Repeat washing your hair a couple of times and brushing it with the brush until all residue of the bond has gone. Let your hair dry naturally, and then spray in some leave in conditioner.

Your hair has been traumatised, so if you can give it a rest for at least a week before you do anything to it, this will help
