Greasy Hair? Here’s why you might be suffering

We all get greasy hair from time to time, but what if you’re finding yourself trying everything you can to have a grease-free day and not succeeding? You might be surprised to know just what factors can cause greasy hair. We’ve listed the most common ones below:

1.       Over-washing

Most people would think frequent washing of hair would be a remedy for grease, but actually, it can become a deadly cycle. Daily shampooing can strip your scalp of its natural oils, so it will produce more oil to replace them, which will make you feel “dependant” on the shampoo.

If you’re finding yourself washing your hair on a daily basis, try weaning yourself off the product over a few weeks. Cut back to every other day, and then two-to-three times a week. At first, your hair will feel greasier as it adjusts. But once it becomes used to your new routine, you will find you can go days without grease build-up- and you’re saving money on shampoo in the long-run!

2.       Your pillowcase

Cotton pillowcases might feel like heaven to sleep on, but experts have found that they might actually be the reason why you’re waking up every morning with greasy hair. This is because cotton fibres are very absorbent, and suck in the scalp’s natural oils overnight. When oils are absorbed, the scalp ends up producing more to replenish itself, giving a build-up of grease.

Want to prevent the nightly grease build-up? Try swapping your cotton pillowcase for a silk one. Silk controls sebum, or grease, production. This is because its fibres are less absorbent than cotton, so it doesn't suck in the scalp's natural oils.

3.       Using the wrong products/too many products

Aside from the rare all-natural products out there, chances are, your heat protectant spray, hairspray and any other of your favourite styling products are probably contributing towards your hair’s grease levels to some extent. They might not be compatible with your hair, or it might simply be that you are using too much of it.

If you still want to use your styling favourites (and of course you do), the best thing to do is avoid ones that promise 'shine' and 'moisture' which would be better suited to dry or dull hair types. And, as always, the more natural the product, the better.

4.       Your hairbrush

Can’t remember the last time you cleaned your hairbrush? Chances are, that’s contributing towards your greasy hair. If you’re brushing your hair often (which we’d like to imagine you are), there will be a build-up dead scalp, hair product build-up, the oils that occur naturally in your hair, and ambient dust.

You should actually try to clean your brush every other week, by simply pulling out all of the dead hair, then giving it a scrub in a bowl of warm water with a bit of shampoo. Once you’ve shaken out the water and left it to dry overnight, your brush will be good to go again.

Finally, the truth on how much it really costs to go blonde

Without much read-up on it beforehand, it’s fair to say that a lot of us might assume that the salon hair dye process is a simple, one-stage process. And so, therefore, it’s a low-cost thing, right? Wrong. Unfortunately, leaving your hair dye job in the hands of professionals (which is highly recommended, by the way) means paying good, deserved money for good results that are worth every penny- especially if you’re going blonde.  

We won’t even start on the potential disastrous results of a DIY hair bleach, but let’s just say, you’re best sticking to the hairdressers if you’re planning on walking out with the colour you’d intended on getting. And Connecticut-based hairstylist Gina Bianca's honest Instagram posts about hair transformations are proving exactly why it’s worth spending that extra cash.

On a post from her account the_hair_doctor, which features the before and after photos of a dramatic hair dye dark-to-light transformation, along with the total cost of the work, $608, she writes: “LETS👏🏼BREAK👏🏼IT👏🏼DOWN.

“Here’s another angle of the breakdown that started the price break down revolution. I got so much heat for this since it was something new that not many stylists feel comfortable sharing. It’s awkward to talk about money. It’s awkward to explain to a customer why you’re worth paying for. It’s awkward to stand up for yourself when you truly just want to make everyone happy. It’s awkward to defend the profession you’ve chosen. Nobody should have to do that.”

She continues, “My goal for posting breakdowns was to simply shed light on the process. People sometimes look at being a hairstylist as a part time gig, a job to fall back on or even worse, not a real “career”. I am a full blown example that if you EDUCATE YOUR SELF, TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR WORK, AND RESPECT AND LOVE YOUR GUESTS - you will build a clientele of fabulous people who love and respect you and will be happy to pay your prices.”

She then breaks down the cost that this particular hair transformation had involved, writing: "Full highlight: $180, Extra bowls: $100, Gloss: $40, Extra bowls: $40, Smudge: $60, Treatment: $65, Haircut: $78, Curls: $45, Bond builder: Free (the only discount I think is acceptable here because it takes no time), Total: $608, five hours of work at $120 an hour."

Although initially the cost may startle you, Gina’s breakdowns make it easier to understand how and why each service cost what it did. Whereas with a packet hair dye, you’re paying for the (often cheaply batch-made) dye itself and a pair of flimsy gloves, at the hairdressers, you’re paying for the full professional service. In hindsight, the amazing final results seem completely worth the hairdresser’s efforts.

It’s also important to remember that the process of going dark to blonde is often a lot lengthier than the other way round. If you want your hair to look healthy, shiny, and a good quality colour, it’s going to take a few more sessions to perfect- and when the hours rack up, so does the cost. We like that Gina has taken the time to point out just why a good hair dye job costs what it does, and hopefully this clears things up for a few people who might have been curious to know themselves.

Our top Paris Fashion Week hair trends for you to try yourself

We’ve had New York Fashion Week, and all the hair trends that came with it (wet-look hair, the ‘low-do’, pastels, to name a few), so it was only right that we took a look at the Paris runways to see how trends differed for the coming season. Of course, some designers went all-out with their model’s looks, but we’re focusing on the ones you can re-create yourself, if you’re feeling so inclined. Read on to find out exactly what’s in store…

Glitter hair

Save this one for the nights out! The models on the Giambattista Valli runway each exhibited a natural texture with a bedhead twist, but some girls’ hair was also covered with colourful glitter from mid-lengths to ends, which made for an otherworldly ombré effect. The look was down to hair pro Paul Hanlon, who misted custom-mixed shimmering colour sprays in bright pastels on the hair, then dipped into coordinated loose glitter pigment pots, brushing the gleaming flecks on top to amp up the drama of each glowing mane.

Don’t have time for all of that? You can buy hair glitter in spray-on form from the good old internet- just Google search “hair glitter” and there are plenty of affordable options. Just don’t expect to not find glitter in all sorts of places weeks after your application.

Posh beach waves

Chanel’s models all sported posh girl beach waves on the runway, staying appropriate to the show’s theme- the runway in itself was a man-made beach. The look, which was the work of stylist Sam McKnight, involved half-tying the hair up and securing it with ribbons and a Chanel clasp.

Can’t afford the Chanel clasp? Don’t worry- us neither. But you can still recreate the look by lightly curling hair, and then applying a texturising mist that for an effortlessly sexy, slightly dishevelled finish, followed by securing hair with your own hair clip (hint: vintage clips are very in at the moment).

Wet-look hair

Sorry guys, it’s well and truly back. If you’re not a fan of wet-look hair, stop reading now, because it featured heavily in Alexander McQueen’s runway show. Models were seen with shellacked wet-look strands, as, incidentally, they did in last year’s show. The work of backstage pro Guido Palau, the models’ hair was slicked back, and braided tightly into ultra-glossy twin plaits with a wisp of hair framing each side of the face.

To achieve the look yourself, start by dividing the hair into two sections with a centre parting, before applying a generous amount of hair gel (for the wet effect), making sure to distribute it through the lengths and ends if you want the whole head to rock the look. Next simply tightly weave each section of hair into a braid beginning at the nape of the neck- and you can be totally inventive with the type of plait you go for.

The hair growth diet: what to eat for long hair, fast

Maybe it’s just modern times, but there’s nothing more depressing to an avid hair-grower than checking your hair length in the mirror and thinking, this is literally the same length as it was when I got it cut two months ago. It’s even worse if you’ve been making a real effort to look after your hair, whether it’s adding oil, applying a nightly hair mask, or even head-massaging (said to stimulate the scalp- but not, it seems, fast enough). If this is you, it might not be the external factors that are decelerating your hair growth, but rather, what you’re putting into your body.

Since your hair is made up of proteins, if you don’t get enough protein intake from your diet, its growth will be affected. But it’s not just protein that your hair needs- there’s also needs a variety of vitamins and minerals, like vitamin A, B-vitamins like Biotin, vitamin C, D and E, iron and zinc. A deficiency in any of these minerals could be the cause for your distinct lack of hair growth.

If you’re unsure whether you are including these nutrients in your diet, below is a list of the five best foods for hair growth. Eating a diet rich in these foods should improve your hair’s overall health and strength, helping hair to grow faster as a result.

1.       Eggs

Ever heard of the DIY egg white hair mask? Why not save the effort and include more eggs in your diet instead? Eggs are high in protein, and are extremely versatile, so it’s usually easy to slip one into your diet. Eggs are also a great source of zinc, biotin, selenium and other hair-healthy nutrients, which makes them one of the best food sources for hair health.

2.       Sweet potatoes

They’re not labelled as a superfood for nothing. As well as being a rich source of fibre and containing a good array of vitamins and minerals, sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene, which promotes the production of sebum, keeping hair healthy.

3.       Spinach and other leafy greens

Iron is an essential mineral that your hair cells require, so much so that an iron deficiency can also cause hair loss. Spinach is a great plant-based source of iron, which helps red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body to fuel your metabolism and aid growth and repair. It also contains beneficial nutrients like folate, and vitamins A and C, all of which may promote hair growth.

4.       Nuts and seeds

Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and pecans are a great source of biotin, a vitamin known to help promote hair growth. They’re also packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which your body can’t produce itself, so it’s important to derive them from your diet. Similarly, seeds like flax and chia seeds contain healthy fat L-lysine, which plays a role in the formation of your hair.

5.       Beans

In our humble opinion, beans are underrated. They’re cheap, they’re tasty, you can add them to pretty much anything, and they’re a great plant-based source of protein. Beans are also a good source of zinc, which aids the hair growth and repair cycle, as well as other hair-healthy nutrients, including iron, biotin and folate.

Hair-cessorising: how and why you should do it this Autumn

The hair accessory: on the whole it’s a thing of the past, from the bow-wearing, headband-flaunting days of primary school. Putting anything in your hair other than a bobble and spritz of hairspray for good luck these days is pretty unlikely. But that’s not to say you shouldn’t do- and with certain hair accessories coming back into trend this autumn, there’s no better time to do some experimenting of your own. Need some inspiration? Read on…

The 90’s style hair clip

Remember when giant hair clips were all the thing? Well, they’re back- for autumn/winter 2018, designers signalled the return of blinged-out hair pins, with runway models at Max Mara, Chanel and Simone Rocha fashion week showing us how it’s done. And, luckily for us, unlike the ten-inch stilettos and thousand-pound handbags, this is one runway look that can easily be created at home.

Hair clips are a great way to transform an otherwise boring hairstyle into something bold and statement. Whether you want to use the clip purposely- to scrape back hair into a bobble for example- or you’re sliding it into one side of your hair for a bold side-profile, giant hair clips are a great attention grabber. Just make sure you’re not overdoing it; one hair clip is all it takes, and you don’t want to risk colour-clashing.

The headscarf

Gone are the days that the headscarf was purely a hippie accessory- designers from Marc Jacobs to Dior have been flaunting their silk on the catwalks, and they’re set to be one of the hottest trends of the season. The high street has plenty of affordable options, ranging from the basic block colours, to the more overstated leopard and aztec prints, so there’s something for everyone.

There are plenty of ways to rock the headscarf, and none of them take too much time to perfect- useful if you’re not a morning person and leave everything until the last minute like us. An easy way to incorporate the headscarf into a hairstyle is to tie it into a bobble. Just gather all your hair at the nape of your neck, leaving out some locks at the front of the face, then secure it in place with a bobble. Then simply tie the scarf around the bobble and leave the ends hanging down with your hair.

Fur headbands

Yep, they’re back for another winter. Just like a puffa jacket, we love a fur headband for the fact that it looks cute as well as keeping you toasty- basically a winter essential when you live in the UK. As with everything, there are multiple options: thin and more understated, or thick enough to cover practically your whole head, long fur, short fur… the trick is to shop around with this one. Find a style and colour that suits you most, and one that won’t clash with your clothes. Black or white is a safe bet, but if you can be more ambitious, by all means go for it!

The fur headband is more limited when it comes to different methods of accessorising, but it’s great in that it adds interest to a simple hair-down day or a high pony tail. If you fancy a change from the usual knitted hat in the colder months, a fur head band is a fashionable alternative.

Using your hair to scare: the best Halloween hair inspo

We love autumn. Cosy jumpers, falling leaves, bonfire night… and more importantly, Halloween. We always take the occasion seriously, which means pumpkin carving, decorating everything in cobwebs, and, of course, finding the show-stopping Halloween costume of the year.

So if you’re like us, and you’re already planning your outfit, why not make the extra effort to do something with your hair this year? We’ve found the best Halloween hair inspiration (thank you, internet), and we’re here to share it with you…

·         Pumpkin patch hair

Let’s start with an easy one. All you need for pumpkin patch hair is… well, hair, along with enough hair bands, spray-on copper hair dye, and some green pipe cleaners.

Start by spritzing your hair with the colour spray, according to the instructions on the bottle. Next, part your hair at the middle and pull it all round to tie as a low side bobble. Grab another hair band and tie it about three-five inches below the top bobble. Now take the hair between the two bobbles and gently tug it so it comes loose and forms a round shape. Then repeat with more hair bands until you reach the bottom. The longer the hair the better, because you’ll be able to fit more “pumpkins” into your pony. Finish off by adding the green pipe cleaners over the hair bands, and you’re good to go.

·         The unicorn’s horn

Because we have to accept that sometimes, you just want to look pretty, and not pretty scary, on Halloween, here’s one for anyone who fancies looking cute this October. The unicorn’s horn looks hard, but it’s actually surprisingly simple, and you don’t need a ton of hair (maybe just a ton of hairspray) to make it work.

To create the horn, take all the middle-section hair and but it into a pony tail at the top front of your head, but only pull the ponytail through halfway to create a loop of hair. Then, wrap your hair around the loop in a cone shape, making the cone pointier by pulling the top of it. Here’s a YouTube tutorial, if you’re confused.

·         Victorian corpse updo

Here’s one for the lazy people: this look is essentially a more planned-out messy hair day. All you need is some sort of hair styling gel or whip, a styling dry shampoo, a hair bobble, and your own imagination.

Prepare by adding volumising gel or whip right through your hair and blow drying. Then grab a styling dry shampoo and spray all over, to add texture and grip. Your next step is to take the hair and divide into three tidy sections, and start backcombing. This should add massive volume to your roots- essential for the finished outcome. Take the hair from the back of your head and make a bun, then smooth over the rest of your hair to cover it, making a wild beehive. Remember, it’s not supposed to look perfect- in fact, if your Halloween look is corpse or zombie, the more dishevelled, the better! Finish off with some dark eyeliner and pale face makeup and you’re good to go.

Sandalwood for hair loss- can one whiff do the trick?

When it comes to hair loss remedies, you’d be right to be sceptical. A lot of the products out there are all talk and no action, with rarely any promising scientific evidence to accompany them. That’s not to say we haven’t tried and tested our fair share of hair growth oils, masks and creams- both the shop bought kind and the DIY recipes (mayonnaise hair mask, anyone?), with varying results. We were confident we knew of every hair growth ingredient out there… That is, until we found out about a new potential baldness treatment- sandalwood.

In case you didn’t know (and we wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t), sandalwood oil has a warm, woody odour and is commonly used as a fragrance in incense, cosmetics, perfumes, and soaps. It’s something you’re more likely to find at your local massage parlour than in your bathroom cupboard- but you may want to rethink that, if you’re struggling with hair loss, or you just want a way to grow your hair faster.

So what’s the hype about? Well, to go back to basics, new research has uncovered something pretty revolutionary: that human hair follicles express an olfactory receptor of their own called OR2AT4, and when OR2AT4 comes into contact with the molecular structure of a specific scent –synthetic sandalwood, as it turns out – it stimulates hair growth.

Lost? Us too. In readable terms, your hair follicles have the ability to “smell”, and if they sniff out the right chemical (in this case, sandalwood), it could be a radical new way of preventing hair loss.

If you’re feeling sceptical, the team did test the theory by using samples of human scalp donated by volunteers who had undergone facelift procedures, and immersed them in synthetic sandalwood odorant for six days. When they checked up on their experiment, they found a small but promising 25 to 30 per cent increase in the secretion of a growth hormone in the scalp. In other words, the hormone plays a key role in promoting hair growth.

So what’s in it for the future? Does that mean we should all take to Amazon and stock up on a generous amount of synthetic sandalwood to rub on our heads? Not so fast- the theory is still in it’s early stages, with the next step being to see if that result can be replicated in a larger clinical trial, which the researchers hope to conclude in January next year. As in, wait until the experiment can at least be tested on real skin attached to real human heads before we all deem it safe enough to get DIY-ing with.

Still, even if we can’t get too excited as of yet, things are looking promising- according to Nicola Clayton of the British Association of Dermatologists, the initial data is “very exciting”, although from clinical perspective she could only speculate about the extent to which such a treatment would improve outcomes for patients.

"It is a fascinating concept that the human hair follicle, as the authors put it, can 'smell' by utilising an olfactory receptor," she told The Independent.

We’ll be sure to follow up on this one as soon as we get a whiff (sorry) of more developments.

Our top NYFW hair trends for you to try yourself

It might be starting to feel like every other week is some sort of “fashion week” around the world, but we don’t care: there’s no better procrastination than sitting looking through some of the crazy hairstyles that make it onto the runway. For once, though, we’re shying away from some of the edgier- to put it nicely- trends from New York Fashion Week, to focus on the sorts of hairstyles you can actually do yourself with a bit of patience and time on your hands. Thinking about changing up your look? Read on for inspiration.

Wet ends

Love it or hate it, the deliberate wet-look hair, in this case just the ends, comes in and out of fashion faster than we can keep up with. At the NYFW Calvin Klein runway the Jaws-inspired show meant models walked the runway with wet ends, which you can either interpret as A, a trend, or B, an excuse to leave the house with last night’s coconut oil still in.

We’ve got a whole other blog post on wet look hair, but in short, if you want to try the look out yourself (it makes a great evening ‘do style- Google it if you don’t believe us), simply comb your hair back without a parting, then apply a styling gel with strong hold. Don’t use too much- you’re going for sleek and elegant, not the kid in junior school with the sticky-up Sonic The Hedgehog look. Warm up a dab of gel between your palms then spread it through your hair from the roots to your ears, then gradually apply it to the rest of your hair according to the look you’re going for.

The ‘low’ do

As much as we’re fans of the high bobble, there’s something powerful about the understated low do. As proved on the Dion Lee runway, this season seems to be all about buns- both sleek and pristine, and feathered and messy- tied just above the nape of the neck, no one-hundred bobby pins of hairspray required.

If you fancy giving off sensible vibes, give the polished low bun look a go- simply comb your hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, divide your ponytail into two equal parts and tie off each one with a small rubber band, then at the bottom of each section, insert a bobby pin vertically, so one prong is inside the hair tie and the other is out. Next, grab both ends of the bobby pin and start rolling your hair away from your face and up towards the back of your head, all the way up to your ponytail, and place the pin in place with a few other bobby pins. Then repeat on the other side- and voila. A low bun with a difference.

Perfect pastels

Apparently, a grand total of 37 models dyed their hair for the Marc Jacobs show, to match the pastel coloured collection showcased on the runway. We know that pastel’s far from a new trend, but according to Marc Jacobs, it won’t be going anywhere for a while (remember Fashion Week was showing off pieces for spring/summer 2019), so we’re more than happy to continue with our pastel hair inspo Pinterest board.

Here’s a word of warning if you want to try pastel out for yourself: leave it to the experts. Unless your hair is naturally super-light or you give it a good bleaching (again, not a recommended DIY), you’re never going to achieve the shades advertised on that hair dye bottle. Your hairdresser can help get you to the exact shade you want, rather than the silver-that-looks-sort-of-blue, or pink-that-kind-of-resembles-orange. Trust us, we’ve seen it all. Get that hairdresser’s trip booked in, expect multiple sessions (Rome wasn’t built in a day, after all), and thank yourself later.

Flower vase hair- because you can now become a human ornament

We really thought we’d seen it all when it came to the hair trends of 2018. But it seems there’s still room to squeeze in a few more bizarre styles that are making the rounds on social media before the end of the year- one of them being this: flower vase hair. The weirdest part? We actually kind of like it.

If you still struggle to get your hair into something that resembles a neat pony tail, this one might not be for you. But for Hong Kong-based YouTuber Taylor R, who has the patience, creativity, and the adequate hair volume to make it work, the look went down pretty well, with her Instagram pic of the ‘do going viral and getting more than 43,000 likes (and counting).

Taylor captioned the pic: “Be truly ground breaking this fall.. wear florals 💐 #FlowerVaseHair” but we can’t help wondering whether she really thought her creation would hit the spotlight like it did. However, since then she’s created a full tutorial on her YouTube channel for those who want to copy her look, which has racked up a total of 75,000 views so far, so it looks like this really might be the thing of the season.

In a tutorial video, Taylor places a plastic bottle on top of her head, then gathers her hair around it and ties it up at the top. Then she uses a couple of extra-stretch hair bobbles to create the vase shape, and stuffs the spare hair sticking out of the top of the ponytail into the plastic bottle. After a bit of adjusting, there’s nothing left to do other than stick the bunch of flowers through the top of the water bottle.

Speaking to BBC Three, Taylor says that although it looks like a nightmare to do, the whole style only takes her “about five minutes”.

“The idea came to me when I saw the September Vogue covers (Beyonce and Rihanna), and I wanted to try a fun way to incorporate the floral theme into my look this autumn,” she adds.

Of course, it didn’t take long before a few other people were trying out the look too (with varying levels of success). We particularly loved a Tweet in response to Taylor’s look by user @Ellzababoon, who simply captioned her own rendition of the style: “The world isn't ready for this level of fashion #FlowerVaseHair”. Very Cindy Lou Who. 

But the question is, are we ready for it? Although we probably won’t be trying out this style for a day at work anytime soon, we can’t help thinking it would make a great add-on to a children’s fancy dress costume. Let’s hope someone attempts a creepier version of it on Halloween and shares it for us to see.

How to rock bedhead hair

In an ideal world, we’d all love to have the time, energy and patience to jump out of bed an hour early every morning, and get to work with the straighteners/curlers/whatever other hair styling tools available to us to create a perfectly preened, I’ve-got-my-sh*t-together hairstyle that instantly makes us the envy of everyone we encounter. Unfortunately, it’s 2018, and we’re adults- so gone are the days of having endless time, replaced by the need to find a way to rock that just-woke-up look without looking like… you’ve just woke up.

Luckily, Blake Lively has made it perfectly acceptable- and possible- to rock the bedhead look, after stepping out on the red carpet at Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2019 show in a three piece tuxedo ensemble, along with the bedhead texture of dreams. Her feathery, tousled look might have been the product of a few hours in a salon, but it’s also totally achievable to do yourself, and doesn’t take up anywhere near as much time and effort.

So, how exactly can you do it? First off: we’re not recommending you take this post literally and show up to work without the tiniest bit of styling (although if that’s your thing, then why not?). But if you really want to achieve the look, you can either go for soft, messy waves or a casual, windswept-chic updo.

For the messy waves approach, you can choose to go all-out authentic and braid your hair the night before (just make sure those plaits aren’t too tight- no one wants uncomfortable pulling all night), or if you can’t be bothered the night before, you can achieve virtually the same look by braiding in the morning, pressing with straighteners and unravelling. Don’t be tempted to get the hairbrush out on your locks, unless you’re intentionally going for the humidity-frizz look. Your hair should look a little messy, but purposefully so, not like you slept in and didn’t have time to do more than put your coat on and leave.

For the windswept updo, simply rake your fingers through your hair a few times, tousling up the strands, and tie it back into a casual bobble. You’re not aiming for anything too high, here- it’s all about the slouch. Leave a couple of strands, one either side of your face- you can either leave these how they are, or style them into loose waves. Think Meghan Markle (if you haven’t seen just how well this woman can rock a laid back updo, get Google searching now).

For a bit of extra va-va-voom, you can always treat your hair to a styling product, if time permits. These days you have the choice of everything from styling powders, to sprays, to waxes and putties, to dry shampoos and oils, but we always think a traditional spray works best. Try a root boost spray if your hair could do with a bit more volume, like this one from Trevor Sorbie. Or if you want to add fullness to your tousled look, OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray promises to do exactly that.

Blake Lively, we salute you. Now to set our alarm for half an hour later tomorrow… we’ve got this.
