Jewel asks:
I bleached my hair blonde, like a orangey colour. I got a new conditioner and itís a light green colour. Will the conditioner change my blobbed hair colour in any way?

The light green coloured conditioner should change the colour of your hair. Thank you

Inez asks:
I recently got a balayage using bleach, but the hair stylist was only able to lift my hair to another a level 6/7; it is still quite healthy (it doesnít feel elastic or overly porous yet). My natural hair colour is about a level 2/3. As she did a balayage style, there is a still a few areas where my natural virgin roots can be seen. The bleached balayage was coloured over with baby pink and coral shades but it has now mostly faded into this dark blonde/orange shade. I have decided that I want to bleach all of my hair to achieve a level 8/9 and then go over with pink semi-permanent dye. My question is how I should bleach the virgin hair and the pre-lightened hair? As Iím looking for all of my hair to lift to an even level. I am unsure how long I should wait to begin bleaching the lightened ends after applying bleach to my dark virgin areas (which are all by the roots/till my ear level). Also, after watching some videos, I noticed that a lot of hair stylist like to comb back the hair before bleaching. Is this necessary when I want to achieve an even bleached hair level? Thank you!

This is a really big job to achieve yourself without compromise to the condition of your hair and to have a uniform colour result.
I suggest bleach the mid lengths to match the ends then the roots next. A second bleach through the mid lengths and ends after a protein treatment (this will keep the hair strong and even out the porosity) lift to a soft yellow as that is okay for a pink base and unwanted warm tones can be neutralised with violet conditioner.
The pink would be applied to clean dry hair to get the best result.
I would ask a salon to do the bleach if you can, that way you you only have to worry about the roots moving forward. Good luck

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.
