I have my hair coloured about every 6 - 8 weeks. However my roots are coming through quicker each time. They started off grey but now my hairdresser is telling me I am white (like my poor old late mum). Could I have it dyed a grey that would blend in with the white?

Hello Annette, Perhaps you should try having a lighter root colour as this would make the roots coming through less obvious, or how about having a haircut (so you lose some of the old coloured hair) and go natural, having lots of very light blonde highlights and then use a grey toner? Itís not possible unless you do dye the hair grey if it is already coloured unless itís blonde and you donít want to go darker as the roots will show even more. I would take the opportunity to have a re style and go for one of the fabulous grey/ silver toners that are so fashionable, so go with the natural look and embrace your white and get on trend. Hope you take the plunge, good luck x

I am 55 and have had my hair coloured and or high-lighted at the roots for years. Yesterday,my hairdresser used the same colour for over a decade, the top of the blonde hair is great, but underneath on the right hand side it became dark like really dark, dark and a hint of black. My hairdresser has never seen this before. Any idea why?

Hi, I usually dye my hair a dark brown (itís mousy naturally.... with a few grey ones!), but last summer it went a really nice light brown/ dark blonde in the sun. I have tried several different dyes to keep it dark/medium blonde, but it started to get a ginger tint to it. I put a dye stripper on it a couple of days ago, itís now a nice blonde colour, but still looks a little ginger in certain light...... I really want to keep it the same shade of medium blonde, but without the ginger tinge. Should I put another medium blonde dye on it? Will it work? Or is there something else I need to do? Unfortunately Iím on a budget, so can go out and spend £20 on each of about 3/4 products, £200 in a salon. If you could help solve my problem I would really appreciate it..... Iíve got a big weekend this week and donít want to spend it paranoid about being ginger.... not that there is anything wrong with red hair, just doesnít suit me Thank you, hope to hear something from you soon

i Micquelle, The reason you get what you call the ginger tinge is because your natural underlying tone in your hair will be orange. Underlying tone is like undercoat for paint it is the supporting colour and gives the tone. So if you donít want the tone (ginger) and you are going to do it yourself you must use a medium ash blonde- the ash tone is blue/green and will neutralize the orange. Donít take the colour all the way through your hair only use it on the roots and orange/ginger areas. You can refresh the mid lengths and ends with the medium blonde when needed but use a lower volume of developer apply to wet hair. I really hope this makes sense?
