2 years ago I experimented with hair lightener and bleached my hair a few times. I have naturally very dark brown/black hair and the result of the bleaching gave me a strawberry blonde colour which I was very unhappy with. 2 years on from the last time I put bleach on my hair, my hair is growing through a strawberry blonde colour in places. Why is this happening to me when I donít have red hair and have never had red hair in my life?

This is a tricky one really. If you mean that the older hair (middle lengths and ends) are growing through strawberry blonde, then this could mean that although your natural colour may appear to be dark brown/black in actual fact there is probably some natural warm tones that have been brought out by the bleach (this is quite normal). If on the other hand the strawberry blonde is growing through as new hair from the root then this is something I have never heard of before. If this is the case you could consider having your hair coloured to match your natural colour.

I really need some help my hair is currently a mess and becoming uncontrollable. I have been a bit of a hair sinner! My hair does not seem to have grown much at all over the last year or so - I have lots of split ends and I cannot actually remember the last time I went for a hair cut because I am trying to grow my hair long. It is currently just above my chest level but it seems to have stopped. I straighten my hair once a week with GHDs. I am guessing this is why my hair is not appearing to grow - is there anything I can do without getting the whole lot chopped off? Also, my hair gets greasy very quickly - it only takes a few days before I am unable to wear it down and I have to scrape it into a ponytail which looks very thin. I have tried using lots of different shampoos to try and see if a particular brand was better than the rest. I always try to make sure I am only ever conditioning the ends of my hair but that does not seem to help much. I try to use clarifying shampoo to get rid of any build-up, dirt, pollution etc but nothing much helps.
I would really appreciate any help or guidance at all as my hair needs serious rescuing - I would love to be able to grow it longer than it currently is and for it to be fresher for much longer too.

Ok first things first, the reason why your hair appears to have stopped growing is the fact that your split ends are actually working their way up the hair shaft. So in essence your hair is still growing from the root/ scalp but just splitting at the ends so this gives the appearance of it not growing. You must get your haircut straight away to avoid this getting worse and ultimately getting more cut off than you would real want. Once this is done your hair will get longer. Re your oily scalp, I would strongly recommend Wella System Professional for oily scalps and also try to wash your hair in luke warm water rather than hot, as hot water stimulates the sebaceous glands that produces the oil from your scalp.

I have recently bought a fabulous wig but the weave makes my scalp itch. Iíve tried wig caps and witch hazel to cool but have to remove frequently to use WH. The wig is very natural and fools everyone. I love wearing it as it looks so much better than my own thin, grey hair but the itching is driving me mad.

This is a very common problem however you are trying and doing the right things. Ask at your local pharmacy their opinions as they may have a lotion or cream you may be able to use.
