|Gillian asks: |
I have my hair coloured and it grows out grey from the roots. For the past couple of months it has been fading quickly and the colour comes of the grey roots almost instantly. I have a back problem and bone loss and have osteoporosis. I am on a lot of medication but have been for a number of years. The only new medication is the tablet once a week for osteoporosis. Is there anyway to preserve the colour?

Obviously you have had colour before that lasted and your are using the same product of color now, so it sounds like the medication is what is affecting your colour. If it is a dark permanent colour there is no reason for the color to fade off at all. You would or should just get a re-growth and usually a full head color needs a re-touch every 4 weeks as the hair grows approximately 1/2 -inch per month. Sometimes lighter blonde shades can fade off quicker due to the fact the dye load is not as heavy as the darker shades and of course if it is a demi-permanent that also will be a reason for the colour dark or light to fade. Unfortunately usually colour problems or unusual situations are due to something being on the hair, like a medication, or mineral from pipes etc. I would suggest that before you do your colour, to use a chelating shampoo to help take some of the medication away from your hair, apply the color to dry hair. After use a cuticle sealer and do not wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours immediately after the colour, these products mentioned can be found in the JOICO line, not sure this is the answer but it might help?

I'm 32 and have always been very blonde; as I have got older I have so much white and grey hair coming through my hair looks very colourless and ashy. I keep going to hair salons and having bad colour done and I feel I need some warmth, but my latest colourist said it would be better cool as I would find warmth brassy. She added too many creamy blonde highlights. I feel itís now too blonde. Is there a colour you would recommend to add warmth and darken the tone? Can I get the colour done on top of the current highlights?
|Answered By: |
I would suggest that you have the blonde broken up with some biscuity dark blondes and light browns. This will give your hair lots of tone and definition, the blondes can stay ashy but by introducing the dark blondes that will give your hair a little warmth too. Make sure you donít have any more bleach put on your hair unless it is for regrowth as hair breaks if it becomes too over processed. As you are colouring your hair so much, you need to make sure it is always in excellent condition which will help to improve the way it looks even before you have anything else done to it. Grey and white hairs are also coarser than normal hair and so you need to be giving your hair extra special attention.
You need to be using super moisturising shampoos and conditioners for coloured hair, try my Colour Love shampoo and conditioner £3.99 250ml to nurture stressed hair. My Hot Shots For Blondes £6.99 3x 15ml, not only moisturises hair but also targets yellow in blonde hair and stops brassiness by making hair icy bright and baby blonde.

At the top of my head where my hair parting is my hair is just breaking off and I am left with tufty pieces and long pieces. I do get my hair coloured and use straighteners. I have stopped using my usual hairdresser as someone says it could be the way the colour is applied on.
|Answered By: |
I think perhaps there is too much going on with your hair! OK the colour you are using could be very strong or any bleaching could be causing most of the damage. As for the straighteners, it is very important that your hair is totally dry prior to using them especially with coloured hair, as when your hair is chemically damaged it will absorb water deeply inside and even if your hair appears to be dry, when you are straightening your hair which usually heats up to about 180 to 220 degrees this would make that water boil inside of the hair which produces steam, that steam inside of your hair becomes pressure which would make your hair almost explode like a pressure cooker. Its time to put back some moisturising nourishment and protein to that hair.
