Summer asks:
I want to try a perm but I want to know if my hair will be okay to take it. The last time I dyed my hair was just two weeks ago, when I dyed it red, and the last time I had it trimmed was seven months ago. What are your thoughts?

Itís difficult to say without seeing and feeling your hair, so my advice would be to organise a consultation with a professional hair stylist, experienced in perms. ...More >

The fact that you have recently coloured your hair shouldnít in itself be a contraindication for a perm, however if the colour has left your hair in a very porous condition Ė for example if you had to bleach the hair prior to dyeing it red Ė then a stylist might be reluctant to offer you a perm. Similarly, the fact that your hair hasnít been trimmed for seven months would only pose a problem if in doing so, your hair has become damaged, broken, very weak or has poor elasticity. While I advise having your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks to ensure optimum condition, particularly through the older and drier ends, some of my clients do find that they donít need to trim their hair that often without the condition being negatively affected. Again, a professional will be able to advise on this during your consultation.

Generally perms have improved a lot over recent years and the types of perms offered in top salons are now far less damaging on your hair than the traditional perming methods of the past. At Westrow, for example, we offer a texturising treatment that adds waves and loose curls to the hair, giving similar permanent movement to a perm. Itís a modern and revolutionary take on the traditional perming technique and has been developed with less chemical compounds, so it adds the same movement, shape and texture, but in a way that is kind to the hair and gives stunning, long-lasting results.

Della asks:
My daughter pestered me to perm her hair so I bought a do it yourself one at home with rods and the Schwarzkopf red box as she had coloured her hair in the past. I was quite confident at putting it all on and every thing was going okay until I dried it using a diffuser in the hair dryer. Then this morning it looks shaggy frizzy and feels quite dry. What can I do to help this? Iím in desperate need of help as she is an anxious teenager at the best of times and if her hair is a mess she wonít want to be humiliated at school. Thanks for any advice.

Hi Della, It sounds like the hair is desperate for moisture, use a moisture shampoo, conditioner and mask. Leave the mask on the hair for 20 minutes covered with a shower cap, comb through before rinsing and applying conditioner. Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes, comb through and rinse. Then apply a small amount of argan style oil to the mid lengths and ends of the hair, comb through before using the hairdryer and diffuser on medium heat and speed. Be careful not to over dry. Good luck

Lynn asks:
Hi, I have coloured my hair for absolutely years using Clynol Viton go blonde in 12.03 using half a tube to 60 ml of 12 peroxide. The box on this says high lifting colour.Recently Clynol have stopped this and now only produce the shade 12.03+ which is a white blending colour. Would this make any difference and do I use the same quantity and strength of peroxide? Many thanks Lynn

Hi Lynn, I am not as familiar with the Clynol range but I would take a guess the new version will have extra lifting power. I would do the same as usual; you may find it is slightly lighter. Thanks
