well suze I used it yesterday for the 1st time and was quite impressed ..but sadly my hair was still greasy today will not judge until a few more days ...made sure it was squeaky clean today and didn't use conditioner..not giving up yet
Try cider apple vinegar, two parts water to one part vinegar, used as a rinse for 5 mins before you wash as normal, followed by an icy cold brain freeze rinse after - it cuts through grease and product build up like nothing else I have used, coupled with not drying my hair for an hour or so after washing, but making sure I dry it completely with the hair dryer = glossy shiny hair that I can wash every other day.
My hair is also a greasy nightmare. I never go more than a day and half without washing. Nothing I have ever tried has made any difference. Mine is dry on ends so needs conditioning to be able to get comb through it. By evening my fringe hangs in rats tails when I only washed it that morning I have friends who go a week between washes --I hate them - -
I use Alberto Balsam tea tree shampoo and conditioner, I wash every other day and condition every other day time I wash. If I condition every time my hair is definitely worse. Its about £1.50each for the shampoo and conditioner. I do find changing brands every now and again helps too, another one I like is Tommy Guns sage and basil, that's about £5/6 each and you get in John Lewis or Waitrose.
Dd went through a teenage hormonal phase and her hair was vile. Greasy and dirty looking immediately after it was washed. Our lovely hairdresser recommended using Toni and guys extra cleanse shampoo, is part of men's range in grey plastic bottle, and her hair is so much better.
It was really bad though, I used to make her wear a her when we went out together!
I have not found anything for my oily hair for the rest of the time, so I tend to wash it every day. Never heard of Paul Mitchel before.
The other day I came across a discontinued Boots' own brand for greasy hair reduced to 25p! I got two bottles just in case. Have been using for about a week every other day. Hair just about looking washed on the second day. I will have to save up for PM 2 it seems...
Mine looks like its been dipped in the chip pan by the end of the day and it drives me insane! Can't break the cycle of not washing it every day! I use Aussie because I love the smell but need to start looking at another product
I'm in this camp (skin too, it's such a pita!). I just suck it up ans wash my hair every evening, using a range of shampoos including the bodyshop's ginger if my scalp is a bit unhappy and a joico one that is for damaged hair - my thinking being that if I'm going to wash everyday (which P Kingsley recommends, btw) then I should use a kind shampoo, rather than trying to strip off all the oils.
I HAVE, just yesterday, bought a spray leave in conditioner to see if that makes any difference... Haven't used it yet though.
