Amy Harvey asks:
Hey, my hair is a mid brown but id love my hair to be a reddy ginger colour, can a hairdresser turn my hair that colour without having to bleach it? As I don’t think my hair could take anymore bleach

Hi Amy,

To achieve a perfect copper tone in the hair ideally you would need to take out most the previous colour. ...More >

You could do this in a number of ways.

clarifying shampoo-

use this shampoo for a month and it should hopefully lift enough for a good base for the copper colour.

milkshake lightning oil-

milkshake do a great product called lightning oil, NO ammonia and its not a bleach but it will lift coloured hair enough to make a PERFECT base

if none of these are an option, you CAN put a copper tone over previous colour but you would have to make sure it was similar dept to your hair colour now.

Hope this helps


Jenna asks:
Hi, 5 weeks ago I had my roots bleached at a salon and a few days after I noticed my hair was snapping off. I now have tufty 1 inch sections down my centre parting and at the front. I have been deep conditioning every wash (every 2 days) and alternating between a purple shampoo and a keratin shampoo and using a keratin leave in spray after every wash. Some areas are still very brittle especially when wet. My worry is what can I do when it comes to having my roots done? What will be the least damaging (besides just leaving it). I am platinum blonde, my natural colour is mousy brown. I would prefer to be able to do it at home as I had been dying it myself for years with no issues.

Hi Jenna.

I am sorry to hear that this has happened to you. ...More >

This should not happen if your hair is coloured by a professional.

Have you been back to the salon and asked them what they are going to do about this.

Your hair will need good maintenance to ensure your problem does not get any worse.

You will need protein for strength and also moisture to ensure you do not make it even more brittle.

Firstly I would see what the salon has to say and I would not be having any colour application even on the roots at the moment in time as this will only make the situation worse.

Please let me know how you get on.

It sounds to me like you need some guidance on what to go for when looking for a hairstyle as so far you haven’t found anything right for you. It also sounds as if you have always had long hair and could you possibly be just a bit bored of this and in need of a change? I say you should pluck up the courage and go for something different…you never know you might love it! Don’t panic as it can always go back to the way it was eventually if that is what you want but one style that I would suggest is a gorgeous flattering long bob. It is such a great look and a big trend this season. I would definitely recommend this style if you are wanting a bit of a change but still want to keep a bit of length as it’s not long hair, not short hair, but somewhere in between just above the shoulders. If you want to get rid of your black hair I would recommend dying it brown. Don’t worry this can be done at home as long as you’re careful and follow some simple rules. Firstly mix together water and lemon juice and pour the mixture into a spray bottle. You will then need to wash your hair using a shampoo that is normally used to treat dandruff as this will strip the original black dye from your hair, once you have done this apply the lemon juice mixture for 5 minutes and rinse out. The dandruff shampoo and lemon juice can make the hair quite dry so I would suggest applying a leave-in conditioner after using them. You will then need to buy a hair dye removal kit available from Boots or a pharmacy, this contains chemicals that will strip your hair of any colour including the original colour of your hair; once you have used this your hair will resemble an orange colour that you will quickly want to get rid of! Rub a small amount of conditioner through your hair and rinse out. Once your hair is dry it is now ready for the permanent brown dye. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully on the back of the dye box and rinse out. Once you’re back to brunette I would recommend using my Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner which act as deeply intensive moisturizers, to refresh and revitalize coloured hair. The luxuriously thick formulas will help to repair the damage and drying effects that colouring hair can cause…..keeping colour vibrant and hair in fantastic condition. Colour specific products are an absolute must for putting the moisture back in – I hope this helps!”
