If your scalp is flaking so much and so regularly, perhaps it might be a good idea to visit a Trichologist. They can help diagnose the condition of your scalp and the best way to treat it. You can find them in your yellow pages or search in our directory for the nearest consultant. Your doctor might be able to help also. ...More >

Prior to that you could however look at a few things like
a) changing your shampoo. Perhaps your hair has become conditioned to the shampoo you are currently using. Try a good quality dandruff shampoo.
b) scalp treatment for dry skin. Some of your chemist stock none greasy product that you can use on your scalp to help reduce or calm this problem.
c) Drink a lot more water, when your skin is drying in any particular area it could be due to hydration. d) try your health shop for natural products for skin, hair and nails. They might also do some good natural shampoo that may suit you better. You could be reacting to some of the chemicals in the commercial shampoos.
e) try not to wash your hair so often, especially if you are not using a gentle shampoo designed for everyday use.

One or more of the above combination should help you to resolves your situation in the medium term.

Catherine asks:
I have curly and frizzy hair and was told after washing to apply conditioner to my hair and leave it to dry naturally. I did this and it is still rather frizzy any ideas? Also I want a decent style but cannot find any as my hair is curly and shoulder length. Do you have any ideas on a style? My face shape is pretty oval but I have a jaw and cheekbones which really stand out. Can you think of any style that would suit me?

Curly hair is naturally quite dry, which in turn can cause frizz. To tame your tresses you need a moisture injection, which would ideally come from an intensive conditioning treatment like my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment. If you still find your hair getting frizzy then try applying a serum to towel-dryed hair for added smoothness and shine. My Shine Head Balm will keep your tresses in shape and keep flyaway under control to fight the dreaded frizz! As for styling, choppy layers (and plenty of them!) are a perfect way to add body and texture to curly locks, without having to lose too much of the overall length

Eleanor asks:
I have very thick curly long dark brown hair without a fringe. My hair feels very heavy, but if I have much shorter hair it becomes very curly and unmanageable. I would be grateful for any suggestions that you can offer.

I think you should work with longer layers in your hair, this would be ideal as it would lighten it up and make it more flowing. I would suggest some nice layers in the front to open up your face starting from chin length and won or possibly a long sweeping fringe could make the hair look lighter and more interesting. Another suggestion is for the hair to be cut into a bit as well as this will help to give it a more lighter feel.
