need hair advice

I need something for my hair. Preferably natural. It tends to have a greasy look since I cut it in September and started going away when it started growing, but I trimmed it and its looking greasy again. My friend went to cosmetology school and washing hair every day damages it and ruins the natural oils in it. I also had my hair dyed professionally. I've dyed it before with Revlon and Garnier Fructis and never have had this happen. I use Suave shampoo.

um you do realize that as you get older shit changes?  like having your dry to normal hair change to normal to oily hair over night?  or having dry skin your whole life then all of a sudden its greasy all the time.  wait until your 30s :)  try a new shampoo.

How often are you washing your hair now?  I am pretty sure the dye is not causing the greasy feeling since i have had my hair dyed and nothing like that happened.  What you can try to use is the dry 'poo that a few brands have put in stores.  It is like a hair spray powder that you brush through the hair.   Also, are you using a shampoo meant for colored/damaged hair?   You could be using the wrong type of shampoo for your hairs current condition.

STOP USING SUAVE!!!! It's the root of your problems. I know that it is about the only thing that works for drying out greasy hair, but it's actually also what's making it more greasy. It strips the natural oils from your scalp and hair forcing yoru body to produce MORE oil and more and more... If you get away from it after about a month your body will go back to normal. 

Your hair doesn't need a detergent based shampoo at all. Best option is to wash with baking soda and condition with apple cider vinegar. If you just can't bite the bullet and give up shampoo because you've got it in your head that you MUST wash with shampoo... Switch to a salon brand that is NOT detergent based. 

Here's an article for you http://www.vintagesavoirfaire.com/2010/11/the-secret-to-ditching-your-shampoo-forever/

Castile soap is one that is often recommended to use. It's a non-detergent soap and has about a billion uses.

When you get your hair cut, are you playing with it more or running your hands through it more often? I've noticed right after a hair cut I tend to fidget with it and play with it a lot more until I get use to the feel. The natural oils on your hands will make it really greasy. You can also get dry shampoo spray for days in between washes that will take some of the oiliness out of it. I don't think it's the suave shampoo, I have been to beauty school and I absolutely love suave, it makes my hair feel incredibly soft! You also may want to try alternating shampoos though. Using one type for a long period of time can cause build up that can cause greasy looking hair as well. Try a different shampoo then switch between a few. My general rule is after every bottle is used or if my hair starts getting oily I'll switch for a while.

I am thinking you may want to go to a salon for consultation on the right shampoo for you.  I use head and shoulders dry scalp 2-3 times a week.  More if i get stuff in it during summer thanks to dd loving to make messes.
