Jenny asks:
I really want a distinct hair style and I fancy adding some bright coloured highlights to my brown hair, possibly pink. Is this possible and how long will it last?

Go to a cutting edge salon for a consultation first. You will have to have sections bleached then coloured. The colour might have to be retouched once every 3 weeks but you can do this at home with a wash in colour recommended by your hairdresser.

Angela asks:
Hi, I have a question about colour. I recently got Ombre colour done but instead of a red colour it has gone a very orange brassy colour. Would using a blue shampoo on this take out the orange tone? I am happy to keep the red but its more a red/orange colour. Or would it be best to just put another hair dye on top? Thanks Angela

Hi Angela, using a blue shampoo/conditioner will help tone the orange or as you say you could enhance the red by adding a semi permanent red. Good luck

Millie asks:
My natural hair colour is brunette. Last year September time I had my hair fully bleached and coloured blue with purple tips. Obviously as it faded the purple went green so I would go over it with blue and after a few weeks it would fade green again. My roots would go a pale turquoise colour, whilst the middle section of my hair was bright blue (the colour I wanted) and the ends would be green.

I tried removing the colour multiple times and using every technique I could find to fade the blue at least so green so I could dye it red. It went a dark cherry colour for about 3 days, then blue started coming back through, as if the permanent red dye just slipped off it. That happened twice so I just left it. Eventually it was from red to blue to green top to bottom. I cut the green bits off and the majority of the blue and put bright pink over it all, which turned my hair pink and purple and red. Now itís fading and my roots are coming through, there are still very stubborn blue bits and also blonde tips that just wonít hold or take to dark colours. I am wishing to go burgundy mauve ombre, but I have no idea where to start as all the colour removing techniques havenít worked at all (colour b4, vitamin c, anti dandruff shampoo). Help!

Hi Millie, it sounds to me that you have such a colour build and your hair is also very porous and thatís why itís hard for you to achieve a desired result. I suggest you do a few clarifying shampoos leaving the shampoo on for 15 minutes at a time before rinsing and repeating. This should help remove some of the colour build up, the next thing is to do a few treatment masks to help even out the porosity. Then you can apply the desired colours to the hair, make sure it is clean and dry and has had no conditioner, add 10 minutes to the processing time as well and hopefully you will get a great result.

Use colour save shampoo, regular treatment masks and comb conditioner through before rinsing to help maintain the condition of your hair as well as help prevent colour fade.
Good luck
