    Hair Trouble!

    Hi Girls!

    I am wondering has anyone had the same problem as I have now.

    I have lovely longish hair, people always comment on how healthy and shiney it looks. I've been asked a few times what hair colour I use, but I don't dye my hair and i never have...

    Lately my hair hasnt been washing right. I shampoo and condition as normal but while in the shower it feels like I have a build-up on the crown of my head. After I do my final rinse my hair doesn't feel smooth and soft like it usually does. When I am drying my hair it is as if I have put a product into it before hand.

    I have taken care to rinse my hair completely in the shower but I am finding that my hair just wont clean! When I dry it it looks greasy straight away.

    Has anybody ever had this probelm?

    Also has anybody ever used vinegar in their hair? I am contemplting trying this!

    I use 2 different shampoos. Sunday-Thursday I use volumizing shampoo/conditioner because I have baby-fine hair so it could use some volume. On Fridays I use a deep moisturizing shampoo/conditioner. Both types are by Colorese, which I get at Sally Beauty. Since I dye hair, I use that as it's sulfate-free and made especially for color-treated hair, plus it provides UV protection and helps keep my color fresh so it doesn't fade or get dull.

    I keep 2 or 3 bottles of different shampoo in the shower and alternate them. One's a tea tree deep cleansing type, one a plain herbal shampoo and one a light conditioning type. I use the tea tree the most, but I need to follow with a conditioner on the ends or they're too dry. The tea tree doesn't cause a build up and feels refreshing. Most build-up problems are caused by using the same product over and over. Just alternating or keeping a different one to use every week or so should help a lot.

    Yeah I have found that to be the best solution too! I was using a soy milk one for about two months and then all of the sudden my hair, I too have very dark brown hair, would be greasy a few hours after I washed my hair so I went back to my original shampoo and that seems to do the trick!

    Yep I wash my hair every day as I have dark brown hair and grease show up easily...I read online about using vinegar too. I boiled vinegar with water and some rosemary and tried that too.. To be honest I didnt notice any difference.... Thanks though...

    However the bread soda seems to have done the trick! I'll never forget that little trick! I also have switched shampoo so will stick with this one fo a while...

    Re: Hair Trouble!

    I was actually going to suggest the vinegar or apple cider vinegar (which smells like feet, but is amazing). Do you wash your hair every day? This could be the problem. Also if you use the same shampoo for too long, it starts to create buildup.

    1. Basic Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
    2. Step 1
      Make the rinse by mixing 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar with one quart of distilled water. Put the mixture in a glass jar or plastic bottle and bring it into the shower or bath.
    3. Step 2
      Shampoo hair and rinse well. Apply the apple cider vinegar rinse to your hair. Leave in for a few seconds. Rinse using cold water to seal the hair shaft and create more shine. Since vinegar is acidic, using the rinse daily is not advised. Try it once a week, at most. Pay attention to how your hair responds and adjust usage accordingly. Also, you don't need to condition hair after the rinse.
    4. Step 3
      If you notice a vinegar scent after you're done rinsing, don't fret. The smell will disappear after you towel dry your hair.

    I got this from Ehow.com. Hope this helps!

    It probably also depends on the thickness/fineness of your hair.

    That or use more baking soda........maybe it depends on the amount of build up you may have??? Glad it's worked so far.
