Lizzie asks:
I recently had extensions taken out and blonde hi-lights put in but my hair is now very greasy on the roots and very dry at the ends. Can you suggest anything please?

I would suggest that you avoid using conditioner at the roots of your hair and just concentrate on the mid to ends of the hair. The conditioner you are using may be too rich for the root area. Speak to your hairdresser about recommending a tailored shampoo and conditioner which will combat your particular hair type.





Awen Williams asks:
I have spent hours money and time looking for advice or products for shoulder length greasy fine hair that was bleached blonde that has now been coloured mid brown to try and get some life back into it, I have had it layered and I must now have 2 inches of my own healthy hair (some grey) and rest coloured, I have to wash it everyday because the roots are so greasy but the ends are so dry and frizzy and when you rub the ends between your index finger and thumb you can hear the dryness on the ends. I have tried leaving it a day without washing it but by lunch time it separates and starts getting itchy and looks awful, I have tried putting a bit of talcum powder at the roots to last a bit longer but it makes it looks worse and very dull. I have tried serum but it makes it look very flat and limp. I am starting to think may be I should wash it use a conditioner to get the knots out and blow dry it at the roots to dry it out but I know I will end up cutting the ends more often but I like having longish hair I do not suit short hair at all - what do I do I hate my hair, please help?

I would like to recommend that you wash your hair everyday firstly, I believe the oil that you have, which are a body secretion, are not good for you as they will increase your bacterial floral also the over production of yeast on your scalp producing dandruff and also irritation and in some cases also infection of the follicle. I would advise you to use a shampoo for oily hair







Nassar asks:
I am a 19 year old male. I have recently bought hair straighteners. I have thick and curly hair. However no matter how many times people try to explain to me how to properly straighten my hair I never get it right. I believe I am doing the right technique. I brush my hair backwards, it is rather wavy then, and then I slowly take little sections and pull the straighteners upwards so that I could spike it if I add matt clay. PLEASE try and explain why it is not happening to me. After completion, my hair looks half straight half curly and it is a bit of a mess. What do you suggest seeing you are an expert, could I permanently straighten my hair?

Pablo AlvarezAnswered By:

Yes you have got the technique right, perhaps try to go slowly when you do it also try taking bigger portions as it would help you to grip the hair better. Always make sure your hair is totally dry before straightening, and as your hair is slightly shorter you can always pass the irons over the hair a few times. There are few methods of hair straightening I would suggest YUKO system as it does not damage your hair as much, however think that your hair grows from the root at a speed of approximately half an inch per month so your ends would be straight and your roots curly also it is a very expensive process.
