Jayne asks:
I am naturally a dark brown-black colour. I have been colouring my hair red for a few years now, I last had it coloured about 6-7mths ago but also had high lights at the same time, can I dye my hair brunette now without causing any adverse reactions?

With any colouring I would always strongly advice visiting your local hair salon and speaking to a colourist for a consultation. With so many colours on your hair there may be a chance of patching where it does not all take and the old blonde highlights may make the hair lighter in areas. It may be an idea for your colourist to strip your hair colour so you can start from fresh. I would suggest you start to condition your hair with a deep conditioner a couple of times a week to get it at its optimum before you think about re-colouring.

It could be that the hair has oxidised since you have coloured it. Did you use a pH balancer after colouring the hair? Also you will find that when looking at a hair colour in a salon the salon lights have a blue hue which makes the blonde look nice. However a regular domestic light that you will have at home has an orange hue which makes the hair look brassy. May I suggest toning the hair will an ash blonde semi colour at a level 9 or above. Hope this helps

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.
