Oily Scalp and Dry Hair Ends

Q: I work out daily so my hair is VERY oily around the scalp but I swim pretty much daily too so my hair dries out on the ends. Can you offer any help to make it look good? I have a few blond highlights. Thanks!
 
A: Yours is actually a question I get often. And it requires a two-pronged approach since you're dealing with two competing environmental issues. (Sweating and Chlorine from swimming).
 
      First off, for the oily scalp, get yourself a two-in-one shampoo/conditioner for oily hair and when you wash your hair concentrate on the scalp only. You then rinse and the rest of the lather will pass through the hair and generally provide sufficient cleansing.
 
      The dry hair ends call for a leave-in conditioner. I've used Infusium 23 for my clients, as well as Ultra Swim conditioner (designed to neutralize chlorine) but if you have a favorite hair conditioner, feel free to use it. Simply apply it to the portions of the length that are drier, and leave it on for 5-8 minutes. Most people don't realize that (particularly with very dry hair) the condition is sufficient to cleanse away any typical daily soil.
