|Georgie asks: |
I have been using hair bleach on my hair for a couple of years. I am quite sensitive to the after smell of bleach that stays in the hair for a few days. Could you recommend me a shampoo/conditioner product to take away that awful smell, At the moment I am using pPantene Repair and Protect which leaves my hair lovely and soft, but it will not take away bleach smell. Please could you advise me?

Georgie, You could try using a clarifying shampoo and leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing and repeating. Otherwise add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to your regular shampoo and conditioner, leaving for a few minutes before rinsing. Good Luck

My hair was Indian hair before it got messed up by perming it and ever since Iíve tried to get my hair back but it is hard and is extremely damaged. I have asked other hair stylist what to do and they have said that I need to wash my hair with great products, but I canít wash my hair every day because it will strip my hair out if I do. I want my hair back to be silky soft and long. I also want to leave my hair down but I canít because of the perm and I didnít even need it :( please help.

Oh Mari, You donít say how long ago you had the perm but try not to worry as your hair will recover. I suggest you use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, making sure you leave the conditioner on for 5 minutes and comb through before rinsing. Then apply an argan style oil to your wet hair and also comb through before leaving to dry. It doesnít matter if you donít shampoo your hair often as the natural oils from your scalp are very conditioning and so will help your hair recover. Invest in a moisturising mask and apply after you have shampooed your hair with a few drops of the oil of your choice, comb it through and cover with a shower cap for 20 minutes, rinse then apply conditioner and comb through before the final rinse. All the conditioning and combing through will help smooth your hair and weigh it down, but you must do this as a regular routine even if itís only weekly.
Really good luck and in a month you will feel so much happier with your hair.
|Danny asks: |
I have had this issue for a few years where conditioner causes my type of hair to become excessively shrunken, unmanageable, dry and frizzy. I used to only use shampoo back then and my hair looked and felt how it should. Whenever I use shampoo alone, my curls become defined and elongated and is able to absorb products, whereas when I use conditioner, all my products sit on top of my hair instead of soaking in and it feels somewhat crunchy?
Iím going back to using shampoo and pure oil as conditioner, however can you enlighten me (if possible) on why conditioners do this to me?
Thank you so very much!

Hi Danny, Have you tried a conditioner for fine limp hair? The lighter the consistency the less of an issue you will have Ė more deep conditioning versions do tend to weigh the hair down and make it look flat and lank at the roots. Make sure you apply to the ends and comb through whatever conditioner you do choose to use so it doesnít weigh the roots down. Also try leave in conditioner, the lighter formula will work for you I think.
