    It'll irritate your scalp and dry your hair out horribly. It'll make your hair get greasier quickly because you'll strip it of its natural oils, making it over-compensate by producing more.

    Don't do it, it'll ruin the condition of your hair.

    Solid shampoos, like the ones Lush do, can help with greasy hair, and if you go in there and talk to them about your hair and its problems, they'll be really eager to help you pick out the products that are right for you. Bit expensive, but yummy. They also a liquidy one with salt particles in, which is good if you get spots on your scalp.

    TresEmme Deep Cleansing shampoo is pretty good for greasy hair.

    P.S Don't buy T-Gel! It's made by Neutrogena, they kill whales! Also don't use Pantene products. Shampoo should go on hair, not in little bunnies' eyes

    Quite a powerful surfactant and slight abrasive - contains salt etc (exactly why you shouldn't wash a car in it) probably wont do much harm now and again, but why not just get a shampoo for greasy hair (smoething with citrus like lush's jumping juniper)??
    Lush's Jumping Juniper is excellent for greasy hair. Surely washing up liquid would just strip your hair of its oils making it get greasy again?

    I washed my hair with fairy liquid last night to remove product build up and then used a deep conditioning mask afterwards. My hair is now really shiny and clean!!

    I wash my hair every night, and by the next evening it begins to get greasy, but i wouldn't like to not wash it every day, so i wash it everyday, if that makes sense!

    Hardly a strong detergent, since you can put your hands in it when washing up. If it was strong enough to kill hair or do any real, lasting damage then you wouldn't be able to wash up with it.

    I wouldnt do it regularly, but its worth a try, I suppose. Just be careful it wont turn your hair green!

    how can you compare hands to hair? Hands are protected my layers and layers of cells that make up the skin's layers, but the hair is a cell on it's own without any protection except the natural oils, which fairy liquid would strip away in an instant.

    I merely meant that fairy liquid isnt a strong detergent. Really, it isn't.

    Anyway, clearly it isnt as bad for the hair as you make out, since people here are saying they've done it and haven't lost all their hair. :rolleyes:

    T-Gel is a shampoo. Usually for danddruff. But it does get rid of the grease.

    Fairy liquid - yes as someone said, will strip your hair of its proteins.

    Shampoos. stick to them.


    and just conditioner your ends.

    T gel is alright for use once in a while but I found it built up and left my hair lank and heavy if i used it too much.

    All i'd recommend is not using as much product, not conditioning all your hair i only condition the bottom inch, and stuff like that.
