Question Posted Saturday March 26 2011, 9:12 pm

monday through friday i take showers evrey day. and i usually curl or straighten my hair so i need to blow dry it, so i use heat tamer. and i dont over do it. but they after i blow dry it it gets staticy. so then after i curl or straighten my hair i have to put in serum. so like today i blowed it out and straightened it and the roots looked so greasy i have no idea why! i think some of it is because of the blow dryer. cause when it air drys it doesnt feel staticy or sticky or greasy..whats the problem hear?? also i hear putting egg or olive oil on hair helps?? how do i go about doing so? thank you lots.

Dear greasy,

I used to have this problem, and i still know people who do, i defeated this however as follows: switch to a shampoo that doesn't have as much unnatural ingrediant(weighs down your hair) also do not use conditioner, use shampoo's with conditioner already in it, stay away from oily foods (fries etc.), try not to touch your hair as much, blow dry your hair upside down, and for you, your most important issue, is don't use that much product, instead for static you just pour cold water over your wrists (sounds weird but it works!) that's about all i got :)

I'd think about switching shampoos and other hair products and minimizing the usage of hair products like blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners.

They all can weigh your hair down, and while your hair might LOOK normal, the roots are being tugged on by the extra weight and it's causing the pores to secret more oils. Having a heavy shampoo that is difficult to rinse out can make your hair look awful. Did you know it takes at least 4 minutes to rinse most of all of the shampoo out of your hair? Most people don't even rinse for a full minute.

When applying conditioner, skip the roots. No need to slather on the conditioner on your roots. If you must, go very light on your roots with conditioner. This also goes for any after-washing oils or leave-in conditioners you may use.

So, you might want to try some other brands of shampoo, conditioner, oils, etc.

I can't tell you about the egg or olive oil but i can tell you that you are using too much product and heat on your hair. Let ur hair go natural sometimes. Your ruining your ends if you keep using all them products.

Your hair is lacking hydration which is why it get's staticy, and it could also depend on the weather and how dry it is. Washing your hair every day is not good because you're washing all of the natural oils. I don't blame you though. I have to wash my hair every day as well lol.

Sometimes, the products you put in your hair can make it look greasy, even though it's not. The easiest solution for staticy hair is to get a laundry drier sheet and smooth it over your hair. It works wonders and you can carry it in your purse :) Another thing you can do it spray a little bit of perfume or body spray on a hair brush and brush your hair.

I'd also recommend that you switch shampoo's. Try Tressemee - Hydration. Try not to wash your hair every day though; if you CAN.. at least for a week.

Good luck <3
