I should say the advice as I gave it was aimed at taimatsu

Ah OK, I assumed it would be the same answer for anybody with long hair, sorry.

Hey, maybe when Imogen's old enough to enjoy messing around with hairstyles you can teach her and me at the same time... (except of course I'm not allowed to tell her about hairstyles or nailvarnish or anything because it'll make her hate her body and be a pregnant poledancer at 14 [subs please check], but, yeah.)

A French pleat and a French plait are two different things

Nooooo! TOO COMPLICATED! :-}

I think this is a misunderstanding and you thought I meant "this style only works on hair that hasn't been washed for days".

No, I did mean "I have to wash my hair every other day if I don't want it to look greasy, and it's starting to look greasy by the end of the non-washing-day". If I wash it every day it goes all brittle and strawlike. :-/ At the moment I am managing to wash it about once a week at best & it generally looks and feels pretty awful.

hairdressing advice can only help you look like Cheryl Cole with the help of a balanced diet.

:-) I'm not 100% sure I even know what Cheryl Cole looks like! (I'll go and look her up on the googles.)

(I know this is a tangent & you said to forget Cheryl Cole, but) I know I have seen her before but I am terrible at remembering what people look like. I'm the one who gets zero on the picture round in pub quizzes, even when it's people I really should recognise. In fact there was a pub quiz for work where the picture round was people I actually knew, IT officers from colleges etc, and I still wasn't sure about most of them. Even people I know quite well don't look quite how I expect when I see them, there's always something sort of unfamiliar about them. Weird.

That would be lovely! Assuming she ever does go through that stage; I guess not all kids do.

I think you've already tried the thing where you just wash the roots and it didn't work for you, so I'm going to suggest a) switch to a milder shampoo (borrow Imogen's!) and see if it helps your hair self-regulate, quack, moo; or b) try Batiste dry shampoo, which gives you a day's grace. I discovered it a few months ago and I'm ashamed to say it's my most-used hair product. You can also use it to give clean hair extra volume, which is apparently what Cheryl Cole uses it for (yes, really).

Mild prosopagnosia? I dunno.
