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

I have had my hair coloured with foils for many years one brown one blond I live in France now when I get the brown low light it goes orange probably due to the sun. How can I make my hair looked highlighted without it going orange, would a full blonde head be my only option?
|Answered By: |
The answer to your question is simply yes a good hair colouring stylist who is dedicated to colouring definitely can and should get your blonde highlights with out going Orange. I always tell me friends here to find a good hairdresser by asking people you see on the street or out shopping who have the hair style and colour you like where they have their hair done, that way you should be able to find a good salon, it may be necessary to have to travel a distant but make it a beauty day out and enjoy the experience. There are many ash or Ivory based colour shades for huge lifting colours, the timing the colour is left on the hair is important as well as the strength of peroxide used, to high peroxide and your hair could break to little your hair goes Orange Ginger colour, take some time to find the right stylist and salon it will be worth the wait. To be fair the sun can play havoc with hair colours always protect your hair from the sun, and use a Hair Sun Protector which are available in good salons. If you swim in a highly chlorinated pool that will definitely strip your Hair colour, chlorine is damaging on skin as well as on hair, itching scalp and skin can result from pools with a high chlorine content always wear a swim cap to protect your hair. I would not recommend going fully blonde until you have found a hairstylist who can get your hair orange free. Any Bleach or high lift colours can become ginger or orange, unless the hair is in reasonable good condition, the right colour toners can prevent orange tones, I hope these options may help you, I wish you success in finding your stylist who will make you feel and look fantastic.

I have blonde highlights but my hair has become dry and dull and never shines. If I was to have it coloured darker would this bring the condition back. My natural colour is brown but when I was younger I was a red head but as I got older my hair went darker. What can I do to bring back the condition in my hair

Using treatments will always help gain your hairs condition? Wella do a great warming mask, going darker will enhance its shine and give the illusion of better conditioned hair but always look after your hair using treatments
