Millie asks:
Hi, I am 44 years old and my hair seems to be getting thinner and thinner especially around my fringe area, the hair seems rather brittle around my temples, it get greasy really quick so I find I have to wash it everyday, to make it look acceptable I have to flow dry and straighten as otherwise itís rather frizzy even if I leave to dry naturally. I seem to loose a lot of hair when washing/drying more than 100, so washing everyday is making my problem worse, id love not to have to wash it everyday and for it to look thicker and healthier, itís mid length at present although I try and keep it just touching my shoulders as short hair doesnít suit me and if I grow it longer it look lank and lifeless, I have tried skin hair and nail supplements more 4 month now but no change, is there a shampoo that will reduce my hair getting so greasy and that promotes hair growth and strength? I did used to have really thick curly hair but fear the straighteners over the years have done major damage.

Hello Millie

Well done for taking the supplements, donít give up as there will be a difference you just need them as well as a combination of other things. ...More >

I would suggest you take a look at the following you may find the documents above helpful:

- Take a look at your diet as sometimes adding in a few vital nutrient rich foods can make a difference

- Ask in a professional salon for a protein based shampoo, or if you want to select one yourself choose a formula where the liquid is clear not opaque as still will mean it doesnít contain to many conditioning ingredients that will make the hair greasy

- Use dry shampoo, there are now coloured versions which are dry for keeping your hair looking fresh and adding a little volume

- Try not to touch your hair too much throughout the day as it can become a habit and makes the hair greasy more quickly

- This one sounds crazy but be careful applying your moisturizer, it again can make the hair greasy but there has been linked to potential thinning hair lines on women

- If you take medication, perhaps consult your doctor as there are so many that have side effects that can seriously effect hair such as contraceptive pills especially if they have been taken over a long period of time Have a trim, use a treatment mask at least weekly and Iím sure over the next month or 2 you will see improvement, if you donít perhaps consult a trichologist and they will carry out some blood tests and help you get to the bottom of the problem.

Good luck

Laura asks:
I recently dyed my hair with bleach and colour and while I am not allergic to the products used it has left me with terrible dandruff and a very itchy scalp. I have used anti dandruff shampoo which not only stripped the hair colour but it burned me as my scalp is not sensitive and when using non sulphate colour shampoo it had no effect on the dandruff. I am out of ideas and just want to find a shampoo that can help with my dandruff issue while not destroying my colour, any help?

Hello Laura

May I suggest you use something like Almond oil, warmed whilst in the bottle. Massage it in to your scalp and leave overnight if possible, use an old pillowcase so as not to ruin it. This will re moisturize as well as hopefully soothe and calm the scalp. I donít think you have dandruff just a very dry flaky scalp most likely caused by the colours active ingredients and then the high PH of the dandruff shampoo. So try a shampoo for sensitive scalp and colour protectors there are lots to choose from in professional salons as well as on the high street. This will re balance the natural PH of your scalp and wonít strip the scalp or colour. ...More >

Hope this helps
