Daisy asks:
I have waist length, naturally very dark brown Indian hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted balayage with a slightly lighter brown and natural looking without much damage. They said they didnít use bleach, but just put an ash blonde colour on and said it could lighten a couple shades. I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís stripy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry, I had no split ends before this (and she cut it....badly!) but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. I tried a blue conditioner but it didnít take away the red tones.

Anyways sorry for the long text! But Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because its often damaging. I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour). Iím wondering if I could put a medium brown colour on it, would this take away the brassiness? Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Hi Daisy

Iím so sorry that you are disappointed with the results. You have a couple of options, go back, explain how upset you are and see if they can lighten a little more which would lose the red brassiness (as long as they use an ash toner after lifting). Alternatively use a medium cool brown semi colour which will neutralize the red tones but not take the ends as dark as the roots. Keep using treatments and comb them through to get your hair feeling great again. ...More >

Good luck

Cynthia asks:
The hair on the lower side of my head has turned black. I have never dyed my hair before. What do you think is the cause of this?

Your hair is coloured because you have cells that pump pigment into the hair as itís growing.†Usually, as you get older, these pigment cells can get tired and stop pumping colour into your hair, which is why hair often goes grey.

Sometimes, pigment cells take little breaks, so itís perfectly possible for hairs to be different colours along the lengths.†Various medications can cause sudden hair changes, as can prolonged stress, so this could also be a factor.

Molly Moore asks:
I was looking into dying my hair into a reddish colour but Iíve heard that itís hard to maintain and I was wondering how would you keep your colour lasting longer without splashing out so much cash on expensive brands that cater to coloured hair and to keep it soft?

Reds are far easier to look after these days, there are lots of great colour shampoo and conditioners in a variety of shades which means you can actually change the red tones temporarily. They are available on the high street as well as professional salons. I would always recommend using shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair and a treatment mask monthly leaving it on and combing through before rinsing. In the summer months or whilst on holiday, leave in conditioner or styling products with sunscreen. Again high street and professional salons both carry all the relevant products so can be tailored to any budget. In a nutshell reds can last much longer with the relevant regime. ...More >

Hope that convinces you
