Hi, I went to a salon a month ago and had my hair coloured(from dark black to grey) but the colour wasnít achieved, it seems like itís just the bleach. It was so yellowish. After a week, I went back to the same salon and got the colour done again. It became bluish grey but after 2 weeks, it faded. My hair colour now is yellowish. Now, I want to dye my hair to purple by myself so I plan to buy over the counter. What advice can you give me? Thanks so much in advance.

Hi Cassandra, This is a regular problem, using coloured conditioners is a way to help maintain the colour if you wanted to stay grey. Purple is easier to maintain and I recommend to my clients to add a little of the purple colour to their regular conditioner and use every other time they shampoo and condition. Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes for a really good deposit of tone. I suggest applying the colour to clean dry hair and add 5 minutes to the processing time, make sure you use a colour safe shampoo to. Good luck

Hello, a few months ago I got my hair coloured at the salon, blonde but with dark roots like an ombrť/balayage. The roots were dyed dark and therefore have colour on them and is not natural. Now I am looking to lighten my roots and be fully blonde and was wondering if there was any way to lighten the roots or if they would need to be bleached/stripped. Also if this is the case how do I go about dying the roots and not my hair as I like the colour of my hair overall and this is what I would like to achieve all over? Thank you

Hi Tyisha, Depending if the dark colour applied to the roots of your hair was a permanent or semi permanent will dictate what your options are. If it was a semi (so it has faded and not left a solid line against your natural colour) you can use a blonde high lift colour or tint. If it is permanent colour you will have to have bleach. I suggest you check with the salon what you had and perhaps have a full head of bleach highlights first. After that you can decided if to continue having highlights or go all over blonde which then you could do yourself with high lift tint. Good luck

How can I remove green from blonde hairlights? Iíve had some success with home remedy but not full removal, and it looks worse as the highlights look pale green so show against my overall brown tone. I am unsure whether it is my water supply with copper and or other heavy metals that have discoloured the highlights or if it was the Manic Panic violet toner I used with Olaplex after doing bleach highlights. Could be a combination. So I have been rinsing my hair in heated bottled water post home remedies. And I have purchased a shower head with vit C and beads to remove heavy metals, but this will take a day or two to arrive. From online research it looks as if I left the manic panic violet toner on mixed with Olaplex Plus far too long. I did this because post highlights my highlights had a copper tinge. I washed my hair afterwards, shampooing a couple of times with a highlights shampoo and conditioner. At first after drying my hair post highlighting and condition with violet manic panic toner it looked fabulous: my usual light brown with light blonde highlights as desired. But after going for a walk in the sun within a few hours it had developed a green tinge and this morning the highlights seemed more green. I have tried to remove the green with natural remedies washing my hair a few times post applications of ketchup, then baking soda and lemon. After it didnít seem to budge x3 shampoos later, so then I tried pure vitamin C powder and cling film. The latter did show quite a bit of green on the clingfilm but my hair still looks green, just a lighter tone, I guess because the hair is blonde underneath and some of the green has removed. I could go to a hairdresser but most are closed on Mondays and I am keen to try and fix it myself if the colour removal - such as Louise Galvin Colour Removal would work. I have some in the cupboard but wanted to try a softer approach first. Hence I need to check if thereís anything in the LG Colour Removal that could cause yet another reaction / undesired effect? I am wary of going to a hairdresser as they might try to do a bleach wash. Any advice here about what treatment I should be looking for from a hairdresser would be very welcome. I havenít always had good experiences with salons hence keeping trusty LG Colour removal in the cupboard! For highlights I used Daniel Field Natural Lights which I have used before without issue. This time I did add Olaplex to the mix as I thought this would lessen the bleach damage. I did the highlights on Friday and tried to wash out the green on Sunday as was too busy Saturday. Probably should have done it Saturday if leaving it longer has seen the green set in? Please let me know what you think I should try next. Budget is no problem to fix this.Many thanks in advance.

Hello Dee, This may sound totally bonkers but please try shampooing your hair with high detergent shampoo or washing up liquid, leave on the hair for 5 Ė 15 mins before rinsing. The foam from the high detergent will hopefully be discoloured as it should be removing the green residue. Rinse your hair in warm water and repeat, really massage the detergent into the affected areas, leave again for 5 Ė 15 mins before rinsing. This should truly resolve the issue, and it works in a similar way to clarifying shampoo but can make the hair feel brittle so please use a treatment mask as well as conditioner. This is a really common problem and is probably a combination of all the mentioned in your email, I have my fingers crossed for you. Good luck
