Jas asks:
I dyed my black hair jet black months ago and then a few days ago I dyed it a reddish/brown colour. It did not take on the already dyed hair and now I Have 1-2 inches of red roots and the rest is a black colour with a red sheen. I look like a red panda and I am not happy with the results. How do I correct this myself?>br>
I am ok with going back to black to cover it up. I have a colour consultation to fix it since I am thinking to do a more flattering brown colour. The red washes my face out. I am Black but it makes my skin look a weird pale brown color (I am a medium brown color with neutral to golden undertones) and this color makes me look tired.

Go back to black as no lighter colour will lift the black you already have or have the black colour striped out so that you can have a lighter overall effect. You can also have highlights in order to break up the black so again you can work towards being lighter.

Hope this helps?

You MUST see a trichologist, there will be causative factors that are leading excessive shedding, which need to be identified and addressed, the description of dandruff sticking to the roots sounds like a condition called pityriasis amianteacea and your receding hair line could be a number of things. ...More >

The sooner you are seen and correctly diagnosed the sooner management of the conditions can begin, without treatment the situation may only get worse.

It is impossible to diagnose remotely from a description, but from the information given if it is pityriasis amianteacea there is a lot we can do to manage it, it can leave small scars if the scales are constantly picked off, and at all costs we would want to avoid this.

Anna asks:
Terribly greasy hair! Iíve always had very oily hair but Iím so sick of having to wash it every day. I tried leaving it every 3 days before washing but had to use dry shampoo. After 4 months no change so I stepped it up! Now washing my hair every 5 days but 3 months on and my hair has made no progress. I tried using head and shoulders lemon shampoo for greasy hair and T-Gel greasy hair shampoo, I also bought silicone free shampoo and conditioner. I shampoo twice and only condition the ends. I donít use any hair products on my hair during the 5 greasy days but dry shampoo but my hair started falling out. After all this I still only get 1 clean day. I wash my hair and the very next morning Iím greasy, my hair is shiny and is clumping already! Is there anything else I can try? Iím so sick of my hair Iíve considered shaving it all off! Desperate woman here!

Hi Anna,

With very greasy hair it would be well worth an appointment with a Trichologist who would look at the condition of your hair and scalp to see if there is any underlying cause for over production of sebum. Over production of sebum causes greasy hair! As the hair is falling out, you most definitely need to see a Trichologist.
The best treatment for greasy hair is to wash it every day, avoid conditioner other than to the ends and use a specially formulated shampoo that wonít exacerbate the appearance of the hair. Look for a product that contains silicone and oils. ...More >

Please donít shave it off! Get some professional advice from a Trichologist, see Institute of Trichologists for your nearest qualified Trichologist.

Hope that helps,
