    It's so annoying! It never used to be like this! Even straight after I've washed it, my hair doesn't feel clean and is still greasy underneath. I colour my hair every few months and so I use a shampoo & conditioner for coloured hair. Can anyone help? I use hot water and try and rinse for ages but nothing works! :(

    I know it sounds odd but I was told to use washing up liquid and it really works. Only downside is washing up liquid is suppose to help remove hair dye but hasn't touched mine xx

    Don't use washing up liquid!
    Use a citrus based shampoo-orange,lemon etc
    Then when u wash try not to massage your scalp and wash ur hair with shampoo twice. Then only apply conditioner to the mid lengths and ends-avoid the roots completely x

    Why not? The salon told me to use it to strip the old dye out of my hair.

    Hair is naturally acidic-washing up liquid is alkaline,so is perm and hair remover! If it's capable of stripping colour then think what it does to the condition of your hair x

    Hair naturally falls out a few months after havin a baby-mines only just stopped.
    Washing up liquid is likely to make your hair quite dry and porous x

    I think you must try a shampoo for dry hairs.But try using good quality products.

    What shampoo and conditioner are you using? Ideally you should be using a cleansing 1-herbal essences do a nice 1 xx

    The 2 that i've used are Tesco frequent use shampoo & the one before that was a brand one that i cant mind the name of...maybe timotei?

    So do you think its not actually getting cleaned enough? Would 2 washes not do the trick?? Never heard of a cleansing shampoo before, thot they all did same thing.

    My hair is really fussy with shampoos. The best I've used are herbal essences and head & shoulders, they always leave my hair feeling proper cleaned. The worst I've used are pantenne & timotei (sp?), both of them made my hair feel like it was coated in something xxx

    i used to have this problem and my hairdresser told me it was because of an ingredient in most shampoos called 'Dimethicone' basically its a derivative of silicone and this can make your hair feel greasy. The best thing to do is look for a shampoo that has either no dimethicone, or its so far down on the ingredients list that the content of it is really tiny.
