Claire asks:
I have shoulder length very dark hair, I would normally wash it with a variety of shampoos every second day. My hair has always been full of volume. I have suddenly developed an embarrassing problem as my hair has a very bad greasy strip directly down the middle. It affects no other part of my hair. I have washed it up to ten times in a day to try remedy this with no luck. Some people suggest I am not washing the shampoo out properly but this is not the case. Have you any suggestions that may help?

You may, for some reason have a build-up of an oily substance on your hair, possibly silicone as it is used extensively in shampoos and conditioners these days. I would suggest that you buy a shampoo and conditioner which does not contain any silicone -look at the ingredient list, the most commonly used silicone is called Dimethicone. The first time you use the shampoo apply a good quantity of it to the greasy region down the middle of your head before you wet your hair. By doing this you will be forcing the shampoo to combine with any oil, silicone or other material present simply because it does not have the option of mixing with water and leaving any oily substance behind. You need only do this once, thereafter use the products as normal. Also remember not to apply conditioner either to your scalp or within a few centimeters of it as the hair there does not need conditioning and you run the risk that you will make your hair greasy.

Loretta asks:
: I am a teenager and have very thick, naturally messy hair. It takes me a really long time to straighten my hair and I never really can get it nice and straight. Have you got any tips about straightening hair that will last?

I have an entire haircare range, called the Poker Straight collection, which is dedicated to maintaining perfectly sleek, straight hair. There are a variety of products within this that you could use to keep your hair straight, including a shampoo, conditioner and intensive treatment. For a more long term solution try asking your stylist about chemical straightening. It can be quite expensive, but lasts up to a year, keeping your hair effortlessly manageable and saving you hours of straightening time!

Hi Tracey:
There are many causes of why your hair its going ginger - I have tried listing some of them:
a/ if you taking or had taken any medication within the last few months
b/ if you taking any vitamins particularly an iron supplement
c/ the product used could be out of date
d/ the peroxide could it lost the strength through age or even if it has been left open
e/ had not been develop for long enough
f/ you can have some build up in the hair like silicone or sunning
g/ some type or hormonal unbalance like period or pregnancy so body calories are different
h/ poor quality bleach has been used
I hope this helps
