Combination Hair Type
Combination hair is greasy at the roots but dry and sometimes split at the ends.
Combination Hair Causes
- Chemical treatments
- using detergent based shampoos too frequently
- overexposure to sunlight
- overuse of heat-styling equipment
Such repeated abuse often provokes a reaction in sebum secretion at the roots and a partial alteration in the scales, which can no longer fulfil their protective role. The hair ends therefore become dry.
Combination Hair Solutions
Use products that have only a gentle action on the hair. Excessive use of formulations for oily hair and those for dry hair may contribute to the problem.
Ideally use a product specially designed for combination hair. If this is not possible try using a shampoo for oily hair and finish by applying a conditioner only from the middle lengths to the ends of the hair.
