I know this is going to sound, and probably is, really pathetic but I am getting really down about it.
My hair is usually very shiny but since Tuesday it is just lank and VERY greasy. It looks ike I haven't washed it for days. Even when it's wet (just washed) it looks and feels greasy.
I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy on Thursday and the steroids they have given me are playing havoc with my emotions. I keep crying all the time for no reason and lookng like I've been dipped in lard really isn't helping at all!!

Have you tried spraying in some dry shampoo? Or even just talc?

And it doesn't sound pathetic - sorry you're going through a crap time. flowers

Could it be to do with the palsy?

Or do you have a build up of product in your hair, maybe silicone? If so, try washing with a shampoo that gets rid of product build up then stop using shampoo etc with silicone.

I had that when I was pregnant with my daughter. I stopped getting any bath water on my hair, stopped using conditioner and once in desperation used fairy liquid on my hair!! Harsh but it worked.

I then used kerastase shampoo for fine hair and it sort of worked - it was definitely a hormonal thing with me. But it was awful - even as I washed my hair I could feel it was still greasy - was hideous.
