Combination complications

I have greasy roots and dry ends and my combination hair is driving me crazy! I have to wash my hair every day as I’m worried about my scalp looking too oily, but this is really drying out the rest of my hair. Help!

The first thing to remember about combination hair is do not wash it too often. Over-washing hair can really cause the ends to dry out. Try using a shampoo to help balance and remove excess oil in the scalp without drying the ends. L’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Pure Resource Shampoo is a great cleansing shampoo, which will help reduce product and oil build-up. I’d recommend using a shampoo like this once a week. If you feel the ends of your hair need a bit of pampering, then use a mask only on the ends as this is where your hair needs the most moisture. Try using a dry shampoo in-between washes to help refresh hair. L’Oréal Professionnel Techni Art Fresh Dust is a super-fine spray which doesn’t leave any residue, so you won’t end up with that powdery look that often occurs with some dry shampoos.
