PostSubject: Help with hair   Sat Mar 03, 2012 9:45 pm

Since there are a lot of amazing ladies on this board who are very smart, I have a beauty question for y'all.

Okay, I have very thick hair. Anytime I have gotten my hair cut they tell me I have about 4 hairs growing out of one folicle. Anyway, I also deal with oily hair on the top of my head. I wash it every other day because by then it's oily. (Not that I would go past 1 day anyway. Ha!) The drying process is so long. I have to use a hair dryer because if I don't and let it air dry, I end up looking like someone who put their finger in a light socket--very frizzy. Anyways, when I wash my hair I wash every inch very well and rinse very well. Same with conditioner. My issue is everytime I get out of the shower and after I dry it, there is a strand of hair on the right side of my head in front that always still seems oily...it drives me nuts! I have to put a bobby pin in like a barrette to give it from hanging down and looking horrible...which then having a barrette in makes me look younger. I have tried SO many shampoos, conditioners, etc. to try to fix this issue. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or knew of a shampoo that could help me. I've just about had it.

I've never tried it because my issue is more that I have dry hair instead of oily, but Suave Shampoo Daily Clarifying gets amazing reviews, and you can probably find it at Walgreen's. Oh, also: sometimes if one uses too much conditioner and too little shampoo it can cause oily hair. This is probably not your case, however. It sounds like you take great care of your hair. (That rhymed!)

By the way, I have extremely thick hair myself and one thing I like to do is wash it at night instead of in the morning, so that it's less of a hassle to wait for it to dry!


I remember the time I knew what happiness was...let the memory live again.

Well when it comes to dry hair, sometimes the bottom of my hair is dry. It is like I have 2 problems in one, but the oily is the worst. I have been using VO5 clarifying and that has improved my problem some, but not at all 100%, but it is doing better than Herbal Essences was. I used to use Suave way back...I may check that out again! Thank you! Smile

You could shave it really short? Works for me laugh3 But in my case, I get my hair cut every three weeks, it grows way too fast.

Mine grows very fast too. And it's very thick too.

Haha! I look terrible with short hair. I am growing it out actually. But I think I have found a solution, or at least something to tie me over.

I have the same problem. Thick hair, oily at the top, and dry at the bottom. I hate my hair so much! If bald women was the norm, I'd shave my darn head, lol! But I don't suggest you do that. laugh3

Julia, try "Organix"...I love this shampoo. There's all different scents too. You can find it at Rite Aid. VO5 always made my hair limp and yes, even appearing oily. Also, invest in a good hair dryer...I just had to break down and get a new one at Sally's Beauty Supply, as my own just about caught on fire last week! Yikes I have thick hair too, and I am thrilled to have a hair dryer that actually dries it in half the time. Thumbsup


Here's mine...I think mine is $6.00 or $7.00. Not 'cheap', but it lasts me a good long time and my hair thanks me for spending the few extra bucks. Wink

Try not to put any conditioner on your head. I've found that to be the best way to avoid overly greasy hair- and it was also recommended by a beautician. Smile


I use a combination of Garnier Fructris products and have found them to work really well. I use a combination of their length and strength product and their dandruff product.

I never put any conditioner on my head. And since I'm doing that, my hair condition inmproved greatly. Time totime, I also put a cupvinegar over my hair to make it shine and take grease away. In my case, it works! Thumbsup

Thanks everyone for the help! :D I forgot about this post. I think tonight I will try not conditioner and just blow dry it and see what happens. If it still ends up frizzy, I can just to my hair in a updo or pull it back and get some other shampoo!
