Daisy asks:
I have waist length, naturally dark brown hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted the Balayage style with a slightly lighter brown. After the treatment, I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís blotchy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry. I had no split ends before this but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because itís often damaging and I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour).

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.

Vistie Marsden asks:
I am so sick of my frizzy hair! I have tried everything from sulphate free shampoo to deep conditioners and frizz remedies and so many different brands! I use hair mousse, I use leave in conditioner, I always rinse my hair in cold water after washing and I use a diffuser. It seems to be dry like straw and Iíve had enough of it! I even made a concoction from things in my cupboard such as peanut butter, lime, coconut oil, olive oil and apple cider vinegar as a hair mask. What do I do? The ends of my hair donít appear to be split but are rough to touch. I have not coloured my hair so I do not know what is wrong?! Any advice?

Hello vistie, naturally curly hair is lacking in moisture , so make sure any treatments are moisture based not protein based or you could be making the problem worse. Zinc deficiencies can cause the hair to be dry and brittle so a good hair supplement can help your hair from the inside. Use a styling cream on your hair rather than mousse as this can dry hair out , leave to dry naturally or only take the worst of the moisture out with a diffuser. As the hair will form better curls and take moisture in whilst drying naturally.

Ann Graham asks:
I do not use colourants of any kind on my hair. I had a hairdresser at the house to put my long but fine hair up for a wedding. I had it washed and conditioned ready using my usual products. Just before leaving for the wedding I noticed an unusual smell from my hair much like perming solution or peroxide and there was a tinge of gold almost green in my hair. The next day I washed my hair and the smell was worse and my hair very dry and damaged. The hairdresser said she had not used anything but hairspray on my hair. I was wondering what could have caused my hair to be like this. My daughter who used to be a hairdresser has cut my hair for me says that something has been put on my hair to damage it so much. Can you please help Thank you

Dear Ann, yes this seems very unusual as it sounds like a chemical reaction has occurred causing the hair to become dry ! I can only guess that she may have used a styling product or hair spray that reacted with your products. The reaction will have caused the hair to lift slightly .Do you swim a lot? Build up of chlorine on your hair could react. Do you use a coloured shampoo or henna products as may also react. I suggest deep conditioning and regular cutting to remove the damaged hair.
