Rebecca asks:
Hi I have short hair naturally medium brown which is coloured dark red, Iíve been trying to get it bright red by going to various hairdressers but still get no luck, Iím reluctant to use bleach because I have scalp psoriasis but will consider a bleach bath as a last resort, I am also concerned about damaging my hair because itís taken me so long to get it healthy after bleaching for years which is why I cut it short, I would like to grow it again once Iím happy with the colour, Iím wondering if using a colour remover then a high peroxide colour such as lorieal majirough would be the best way of going about this? I would most likely get a hairdresser to do this for me just in case, but they did say they they wouldnít use majirough all over because itís only meant for highlights even though Iíve seen a lot of girls recommending it on the Internet for a full head application, I feel a little hopeless itís the only colour Iíll like and stick with since I canít have blonde hair anymore.

Any advice would be grateful,

Okay get a bleach bath or colour remover done at the salon , that way it avoids the scalp this should get enough lift to allow you the red you want to achieve.
As long as you have a strict hair regime and treat you hair with respect you wonít compromise the condition and will be able to grow your hair.

Seema asks:
Hi Iíve recently been using oily roots dry ends shampoo and conditioner and absolutely love it and I actually wash my hair less then I used too and my hairs so nice and fluffy. I recently got highlights put back into my hair and have previous peroxide from before but I canít seem to get the ingredients in the shampoo if itís colour friendly. I donít wish to give up this shampoo but I canít afford for the colour to be stripped either :) please help

Hi Seema

I would suggest getting a treatment masque to use weekly this way you can continue with the shampoo and conditioner without the worry of the condition on the highlighted and previously coloured hair.

Colette asks:
I dyed my light brown/blonde hair to dark brown about 3 years ago. This has been done both in the hairdressers and with the occasional home kits for touch ups in between. Over the last 10 months the colour has not been holding at the roots well at all. Itís now left me with various layers of colour through my hair from light at the roots down to very dark at the tips. I have asked in various salons about the process off starting to go back to nearer my own colour but no-one seems to know of anything that will work. Iíve been told that if they use a stripping solution that my hair will end up resembling a hair colour chart...not a good look! Another suggestion was highlights but then Iíve been told they probably wonít take properly. Have you any suggestion for what I could do??? I donít mind my hair being dark if thatís what I have to stay with but I hate the lighter looking roots. Help!!

I will try to explain to you the steps black end on hair need to go through to lighten them, bleaching is the only way to lighten your black hair, if you have had it coloured black for 3 years and each time the black being combed to the ends to refresh the hair ends colour, then your hair ends will, not only become prickle sort of a glass fibre feeling to it and will not take any more colour due to that the natural pigment of your hair being over processed and is dead, the only way I would suggest is to cut as much off your ends and maybe consider a new shorter hair cut, Bobs are very fashionable in various length due to the new release of the new Gatsby Film in December. If you decide to go that way, please use a Professional salon, to cut and colour your hair. It should be easier for a good salon to lighten your hair slowly over two or three salon visits, once you decided to cut your hair, giving time between visits for your hair to recover from over colouring black for years. Ask your stylist to recommend you the best possible products to use at home between salon visits. It will be well worth spending money on these after all you live every minute in your life with your hair. Make this a priority and use professional advice. Do spend money on your hair, simply because it is the hair which gets noticed most. shiny well cut and coloured hair can cost as little as £60 every month to well over a few hundred pounds. It all depends what is high on your agenda. Colette, I hope this message will help you a little to decide what your next step will be, I will be interested to hear from you again when you have taken this step. Wishing you fabulous hair days ahead
