I have coloured my hair, myself for 10 years from mousey brown to light blonde, and when I visited the salon for brown lowlights they washed out what can I do?

You must go back your highlights should not have washed out. It sounds like they used a semi permanent to tone the colour down which is not what you asked for. Do go back and tell them what has happened.

I have bleached blonde hair and I want to dye it back to brown. I was wondering whether I needed to dye it red first to avoid it turning green, or can I just dye it straight to brown?

It would need to be pre-coloured with the right pigment dependent on the depth of brown you want to achieve. Then it is a simple case of colouring to the desired brown. This can be achieved in one sitting.

Katrina asks:
I have had my hair all colours in the past, but once I had children and settled down it got to a stage where I only trusted a hairdresser. Going from a natural white shade into adulthood, I am now a very dull almost brown shade with string hints of grey and have had either bleach or blonde highlights put in. This has worked for a long time as the regrowth is kind and I can leave it a long time as the roots dont show too bad. However, two months ago I went for a really fantastic shade of red. Hairdresser did permanent colour on the natural roots and a semi on the bleached/coloured blonde. Told me it would fade quite quick due to the semi, but next time I could have permanent all over which would last longer. 4 weeks later my hair was a copper shade instead of deep red, I went back but she still did a perm along with semi on the ends. 4 weeks later I have a lovely shade of red on the roots, but the semi had gone copper again. The whole point of changing from blonde highlights was 1: to be able to colour the roots myself at home, and 2: when I went to hairdressers for it to be shorter visit. I struggled to sit for 3/4 hours for expensive highlights, but the red took the same time (block) and almost the same cost. If I put a permanent on my own roots, and then brush it through, will it ruin it? I just cannot afford a colour at the hairdressers every 4 weeks. I know reds fade quicker, but I may as well go back to my highlights for the time and cost of this lovely red!

Hi Katrina

I think the reason the hairdresser is using the semi is to prevent extra damage and also if you add developer ( make it permanent) it will fade even more quickly. I would suggest you can either use a red conditioner each time you shampoo to help prevent the fade it will reduce with time, or use the red colour of your choice all over but make sure you use a protein spray a professional brand if possible to ensure even coverage and less chance of damage. ...More >
