Amz asks:
I have thick straight long black hair which gets greasy after one day of washing it. I only use conditioner once a week, however sometimes I find that if I have washed my hair the night before, in the morning it is not as fresh it goes flat and starts to look greasy. I am worried that my hair is going to thin out if I keep on changing my shampoos. Is there anything I can do to stop it from getting greasy so quickly?

You need to use a fruit based shampoo for oily hair I am going to suggest Razzamatazz 3 in 1 shampoo use daily to keep your scalp clean and healthy this will prevent long term problems such as hair loss

Char asks:
I have wore my hair up in a ponytail for years now and my hair is starting to go much thinner at the front and it is starting to make me look like I have bald patches because of where I wear it up so tight so what should I do to get my hair to grow back thicker there? People have said to wear my hair down but I do not want to because I like it up so should I just wear it looser or something?

Always refrain from tying your hair back so harshly, (especially when wet) as this causes damage to hair follicles around the hairline. If you only feel comfortable with your hair back, try changing the way you tie it. This way you are not constantly damaging the same hairs which will lead to breakage. Another tip is using a head band as this will cause less tension to your hair. You need to put the condition back into your hair, try using Hot Shots Volume Detox (RRP 6.99) this treatment shampoo in a shot is specially formulated to encourage circulation around the hair follicle to increase uptake of the nutrients and to boost hair body, volume and texture. A side sweeping fringe will give the appearance of thicker hair and a change of parting will disguise the look of any bald patches. I would strongly recommend a restyle, as if your hair was easier to manage you may not be so tempted to tie it back this will also make your hair around the hairline stronger whist encouraging new growth. However if you insist in having your hair tied back a great new way of doing so is to create a messy knot. This is a softer style so your hair is not so severely pulled back and will be less damaging.
Take the top section of hair (half up) and fix into place with a snag free band
Take small sections of the hair underneath and loosely pin around the existing ponytail
This creates a messy pinned in pony that is edgy and glam.

Katie asks:
I have always had my hair cut by my sister, and then about 4 years ago had a perm, but then after a couple of years I got bored of it, and started to tie my hair back. Since my hair has become frizzy, dry, and my scalp very itchy. My hair now has no style in it, and is just truly awful. Recently, I have considered going to the hairdressers to have it styled, but do not know what style to get, and what products to use for my hair, as it is so frizzy and is very dry. Can you give me any advice on a style or products to use? My face shape is oval, and my hair is a bit longer than shoulder length, and I have a fringe.

First of all we have to concentrate on putting a suitable shape in your hair. In order to do this we have to consider what will suit your hair type and face shape. If your hair is quite frizzy and quite thick and you have an oval face shape it would be advisable not to keep your hair too long. A more flattering length would be shoulder length with long heavier layers to avoid a triangular shape (if your hair is big and frizzy). Adding longer layers and graduation would make the hair sit better around the face. A fringe is suitable if your face is oval, if you want it to open your face up then maybe the fringe could be connected to the length. This will create a layered look around the face making the haircut look more styled. At the same time this look will be easy to maintain as there will still be some weight in the hair. In order to improve the condition of the hair, it is extremely important to use products that add moisture and builds up the hairs texture. Start with a good shampoo as this has the most effect on the hair. A good moisturizing shampoo will tame the frizz. After this you will need a good treatment, this should be repeated once a week to give your hair a real booster for the dryness, use the Trevor Sorbie repair mask. Always use a good conditioner after shampooing as this closes the hair and helps to restore shine. Styling products are also very important as not only does it affect the look of the hair but also for protection from heat styling and environmental effects. Try to use products that protect your hair before using the hairdryer or irons, in the long term this will help to keep your hair in better condition and will make it easier for you to manage.
