Diane asks:
I have mid to light brown hair. I wanted ivory coloured highlights as well as another mid blonde tone. I cannot remember the name of the product she used but she put me under the heat lamp for 20 minutes. Unfortunately, my highlights came out gold. The hairdresser said I must have a lot of red in my hair. Can you recommend either a product range and/or an optimum timing to achieve my ivory highlights?

20 min under a heat lamp should usually be adequate for most tints. From what you say it sounds like she used a high lift tint and maybe a bleach or maybe a bleach based product like majimeche (L Oreal). The bleach sounds like the one that came out golden this could probably have been left to develop for a bit longer about 5-10mins until the gold has lifted out. Then if your hair is still quite warm an ash toner would probably lift out the final bits of colour then you should have the ivory colour you wanted.

I previously coloured my hair and it was fine except in some parts the blonde was a little on the ginger side, so today I put in light ash hair has turned a green/greyish colour!

It is really hard to advise you without knowing what your natural base colour is. The fact that the blonde went ginger in the first place suggests to me that you are naturally quite dark. Please do yourself a favour and book yourself into a reputable colourist to get it sorted out. Colouring is a precise science and this is why we always say its best left to the experts!

Shoba Manmadhan asks:
I have been using henna to colour my hair. Now I have more white hair so I would like to try normal hair colours. Is it safe to use those on henna coloured hair? My hair is medium curly and it is falling very badly.

I really would recommend that you do not attempt to colour your own hair at home as the old henna may affect it. I would suggest that you visit your hairdresser and receive a professional colour the first time, you can then decide if you want to do a home hair colour after that. In fact, some salons do actually sell professional home hair colour kits that they can sell to you for in-between visits. It takes the guessing out of the choice in the high street too.
