Patricia asks:
Hi there.My hair is fine straight and I have loads. My hair falls flat without lots of layers to give it height and is full of kinks and licks. I lost a lot of hair due to a drug I was on and it has grown back well. My hair is a chin length bob but would love something different, it was strawberry blonde but my current hairdresser has dyed it brunette with blonde highlights but it is too dark even though I have brown eyes.Have you any suggestions?

Iím so pleased your hair has grown back so well, I think you should have a choppy layered bob, tapered right into the neck with some honey and caramel slices to totally lift your look. Really good luck x

Iím 20 yrs old. I have a severe hair fall and dandruff. I have tried lot of dandruff shampoos. But that resulted in more hair fall. When I apply oil my scalp remains oily but the ends get dried easily. Can you suggest some home remedies and Indian shampoos

The scalp is the bedrock for the hair follicle, and if it is not in good condition the chances of you experiencing problems with hair growth and health increase significantly. In fact, research has proven that a flaky, itchy scalp can cause and/or worsen hair loss in certain individuals. The best approach is a consistent and daily one. At our Clinics in London and New York we find that daily use of a soothing, antimicrobial shampoo and a targeted post-shampoo scalp toner is the fastest and most effective way to clear dandruff. Daily treatment should be carried out until the flaking and itching subside. This can then be reduced to every other day and stopped about 10 days later. Applying an exfoliating scalp mask once to twice a week will also speed up recovery. This gently lifts away flakes and helps to return the rate of skin cell turnover on the scalp to a normal, healthy level. Coarse hair is more porous than medium or fine hair and so is prone to moisture loss. It therefore often becomes dry and frizzy. If you have coarse hair, use a re-moisturizing shampoo like Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturizing Shampoo, with anti-static ingredients.

Bethia Goodsir asks:
Iíve recently been diagnosed as having seborrhoea 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.

Seborrhoeic dermatitis can be managed in a similar way to dandruff with daily use of an anti-microbial shampoo and scalp toner. However, twice weekly use of an exfoliating scalp mask is recommended. For more severe or persistent cases, in our Clinics we use a prescription scalp cream containing sulphur and salicylic acid. Consistent treatment is essential in getting seborrhoeic dermatitis under control.
