Good to hear from you. ...More >
You really need to visit a Trichologist as the change in your hair could be due to a number of factors including hormones, genetics, the products you are using or possibly a medical condition.
A full consultation with a trichologist will help to identify what is changing and how you can manage it moving forward. If you need to find a trichologist, I am happy to recommend someone in your area via the Institute of Trichologists.

Iím 20 male and have been suffering from hairfall for past 4 years but experiencing excessive shedding for past 2 years I have a lot dandruff sticking in my hair roots my hairs are greasy and sticky and when I touch my head with my finger tips some kinda oil is there my hairline is receding very fast I want a head full of hairs again with strong hairline what to do
|Answered By: |
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.

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!

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,
