Hair Help


I need your help.

My hair needs your help.

It's greasy, limp and gross.

I need to try a new conditioner or something.

But my fundage is limited.

Any tips?

Sorry, this post is completely boring, but I really need the advice!

(I tried to compensate for it by using a strange picture)

Oh my goodness....I am sitting here debating if I should just run to Supercuts or something for a new do because my hair is feeling greasy, heavey, and gross! I will either do something stupid or go and have someone cut it and have them recommend a new shampoo or something. I could just go out and get a new box of dye and that will make me feel better for about a week...lol. But I have no tips or no advice....sorry. :)

Heidi, I stalk your blog but as one with hair issues, I felt compelled to comment! Unfortunately for you, my hair issues are the exact opposite! However, I use Aussie products (the purple bottles) for my poofy, curly hair, and they work very well with my issues. SO maybe their products for heavy, limp hair will also be good! It's pretty cheap, so it may be worth a shot!

I wash my hair with battery acid and moisturize with used motor oil. But I'm a man, so I don't know what to tell you.

Hey Heidi! A couple of months ago Sarah's hair was doing that, no matter how often we washed it. I even helped her several times to make sure she was rinsing well enough, etc. Changed shampoos several times too. Our hair stylist said to shampoo the hair, and then work in baking soda with the shampoo to strip the hair. It worked great!! Her hair was all soft and great again. Baking soda!!! I'm so excited, OMG I just can't stop with the!!!!!!

I know you don't know me, but seriously, i am the biggest freak about my hair and hair products. After years of spending waaaaay to much on Biolage, Nexus, Aveda, and all those other brands that promise beautiful hair, I finally found the perfect balance for my hair: Head and Shoulders shampoo. It's a 2 in one shampoo plus conditioner. I know, sounds crazy, but i am not even kidding you....i get compliments on how shiny my hair is constantly. And, every time i go for a cut, my hairdresser always comments on how healthy my hair is. You might give it a try! And, it's SO in-expensive!

I second the baking soda idea. My hairdresser recommended that when I was younger to strip off all the product build up. It was the 80's you know...lots of hair spray!

Kristi said...

first may i just say that your husband is very spicey tonight. he never even comments, and now he just can't stop...

oh, and i like pantene.

The best thing to do in times like these is look at an old picture from around 7th or 8th grade. You are sure to feel better about your hair once you see how far you have come.

Rick said...

My solution was to let most of it fall out and cut the rest of it really short. That probably doesn't help any more than Kurt's advice

As your hair stylist ;) I totally agree and understand that hair products can get very pricey.

I must say though, some of that crap from the market is SO bad for your hair. Example, PertPlus can take off oil stains off your drive-ways. Umm... is that something that is good for your hair? NO!
Do NOT use any kind of "stripper" like baking soda or anything. It will NOT be good on your hair color. Trust me.

Washing your hair too much can make hair extra oily. You can wet if everyday and use conditioner but try not to shampoo everyday. It will make it worse... I promise you.

Try only using conditioner on the ends of your hair. That is where conditioner is supposed to be used.

Next, when your hair is dry, I really like hair powders to help add body and adsorb any oil. A cheap way to achieve the same thing is baby powder. It is a miracle worker. Just make sure after you add to your hair you brush it really well, so there is no white or ashy looking residue left in your hair.

If you have more questions or need me to get you some shampoo and stuff at my cost, let me know.

I heart my hairdress, Miss Christie Walker.

Thank you - I will be calling you very soon!

I saw this movie once called There's Something About Mary. She had a crafty solution that gave her a lot of volume! And extra hold! Give it a try!

VikingMom said...

All hail the marvelous Christie Walker...she does know what she talks about. :)

I rescind my baking soda comment posted earlier (I lived in the country at the time and after all it was the 80's). I stand corrected.

Wow...what an educational blog post.

In deference to Diane Davis' blog topic, perhaps a little skunk oil would work wonders???? It might be worth a try.

Diane Davis said...

wow... now i know i need to post a topic about HAIR to get a ton of comments. NICE.

gina's idea taken from Something About Mary is hands down the winner. Made me laugh out loud tonight.

ps... don't be such a skunk hater.

Billy said...

Seriously! There's Something About Mary. I can't believe you went there.

Heidi said...

Holy Cow - Billy commented.

I'm speechless.
