Kate asks:
I have got very long thick naturally brown hair. I want to lighten it in the sun on my next holiday, I have been told that vinegar will lighten brown hair in the sun as opposed to lemon in blonde hair. Is that true or is my work mate having a laugh?

I think they might be pulling your leg, and if this was a well known fact that worked, I think a lot of people would be using it instead of purchasing professional hair colour kits from the shop or having their hair coloured properly by a hairdresser. I think that if you want to be sure of a certain look and keep your hair in good condition, then a visit to the hairdressers might work better.

Sarah asks:
I have had my hair coloured a lot specially since I started training as a hairdresser, but recently my hair in breaking off due to straightening and colouring, I have been growing my hair as I want it long but now I do not know if it is just best to get it cut short and get rid of all the dead ends. Or whether there is something else I can do?

Over colouring and excessive use of straightening irons can cause a lot of damage if you are not careful. What you need to do is cut out all the damage and breakage, to a style that you are happy with and begin a regime to keep your hair looking fantastic - after all as a member of staff you are an advert of the salon! Stop over colouring and have one of the colour technicians use a more gentle colourant on your hair to bring back the shine, begin regular treatments that contain Nano Technology (like Goldwell Colourglow IQ) then stop using straightening irons every day. When hair begins to break there is nothing you can do except cut is shorter. If you need to use an iron regularly then use one that has a proper temperature control so you can turn it down. You will be surprised that you do not need 230 degrees to straighten hair. Get it cut and coloured asap and begin to treat your hair with TCL.

Amna asks:
I am 16 years old and i found 2 grey hairs on my head and since my hair is black it is really noticeable. I pulled one of them out and I was told that double the amount of grey hairs will now grow back is this true? Why am I getting grey hairs so young can I stop it somehow. I thought I was too young!

I do believe that it is an OLD WIFES TALE that you get two more grey hairs when you pull one out. Obviously it is quite a shock at your age to be noticing grey hair, yet TWO is nothing to worry about. If I were you I would carry on carefully removing the ODD grey hair that appears. Unfortunately you cannot stop them and I would not recommend colouring all your hair for the TWO grey hairs showing. ...More >

If you do start to notice more grey hair coming through then shampoos with small amounts of staining colour in them are great for disguising grey hair. So too are coloured mousses. Your hair can change colour at any time as our bodies and complexed indeed. One example: my aunt was white grey all her life and during the sixties see had what looked like bleached hair Very Vogue at the time as you can imagine, yet when she turned 60 her hair started to naturally go brown.

Colour pigment in you hair and you skin can change but I do not believe at this moment you have any need to be unduly concerned.
