Bethia Goodsir asks:
Iíve recently been diagnosed as having seborrheic dermatitis. I get it in my eyebrows and ears too but itís worse on my scalp. Iíve tried the Selsun shampoo I used to use for my mild dandruff but itís not touching it. Iíve also had Nizoral, Alphosyl and Capasal shampoo as well as Cocois cream and Betnovate scalp application but nothing works. Iíve also been trying more natural remedies such as an olive/coconut oil mask before every wash and a shampoo from a natural shop that is full of soothing and antifungal ingredients but they arenít working either. The only thing that did work was the onion juice treatment I tried but the smell was too much so I quit. Can you suggest anything? I feel like pulling my hair out. Thank you.

Hello Bethia, seborrhoea dermatitis is as a result of your natural oil sebum and the yeast Mfurfur building up on your scalp and this will create an itching .the best thing to reduce the itching is more frequent washing so that you keep any oil build up to a minimum. Also the skin cells are more adherent to the scalp and will therefore create scales as the skin is producing quicker than usual and hasnít fully keratinised -going dry and hard, so that it flakes off easily. Try Tony Maleedy juniper shampoo available on line as this helps to suppress the production of the scales . If you have a local Trichologist to you they will generally have scalp preparations to help lift the scales off .

Lucy asks:

Iím growing out a short, graduated bob but the top sections of my hair are severely damaged. They donít hold any colour for more than a few days and are dry and crispy.

Iím considering a pixie cut to get rid of the majority of the damaged hair and then grow it out over the coming year. My hair has been shorter than the graduated bob in the past so Iím not a stranger to very short hair.

I know that itíll take a long time to grow out my hair no matter what I do with it but I wonder if itíll be better to start fresh rather than continuing to get the dead hair trimmed as I grow it out.

Lucy its sounds like a great idea, short hair is so versatile now due to the various styling products available.

Good luck

Abigail asks:
I have naturally thick curly hair with middle length. On my birthday Iíd love to go to a professional hairdresser and get it cut really short with possibly some thinning as I feel like it be less hair to deal with and I can finally pay more attention to taking care/ products that help maintain it.

And my aware it becomes curlier when shortened (I donít mind the look) but u wanted to know if thereís any way to either make it wavy/straight e.get relaxers and such or wavy/ straight naturally?

Hi Abigail

Have you considered an undercut rather than losing length and thinning, I strongly advise its really such a great option. It means the volume of hair is dramatically reduced and then with really rich moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and treatments alongside a strict hair care regime you take control of your hair whether straight or curly. ...More >

Good luck
