Crystal asks:
Hello, I recently coloured over my bleached light blonde hair but not the roots because I had the ombrť style. I purchased the lightest brown hair dye and I was told to use it with a vol 10. Unfortunately the colour came out very dark brown almost black. I have tried to naturally lighten it with the vitamin C treatment but it only lightens my roots, so now I have these reddish brown roots with the dark brown at the bottom and it looks terrible. I was wondering if I should or can use colour oops or perhaps there is a better option for do it yourself? I canít afford the salon but Iím very sad about these results. I appreciate any advice please. Thank you

Hi Crystal
You will have to pre lighten the dark hair and then tone it as colour doesnít lift/ lighten colour iím afraid. You can buy a colour kit on the highstreet that will have what you require, but make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Good luck

Harishma asks:
Hi, I used a hair colour before I went to the salon and got highlights on my hair with other colours, the highlights didnít take on those parts where I used the original colour. What should I do to cure this? I stopped using the original colour but how do I repair it, so that I can get colour results that I want?

Hi Harishma
Iím not sure what you have used that has prevented the colour working, but I would suggest you have a deep cleansing or clarifying treatment applied at a salon; this will help remove any residue or mineral that maybe on your hair and preventing the colour taking correctly. Hopefully when you have a next colour applied it will work as you wish, good luck.

Debbie Emery asks:
I am a mature 56 year old and have coloured my grey roots for as long as I can remember. As you know a home job means not just roots get the colour and I am desperate to strip the black now and go gracefully grey.

Last April I visited a salon who did a strand test and the bleach didnít make a dent in the black colour and their advice is to just let the grey grow through and keep having trims to cut off the black. Really? My head began to look like a landing strip? I caved and coloured but this time with a demi permanent (read label wrong ... meant to buy semi). So my question is ... will bleach strip the black colour now? I am desperate not to colour any longer. And the black makes my older skin appear sallow? Advice would be much appreciated?

Hi Debbie

I will actually be writing about this on my blog this week and there is also a great video of exactly what you are asking to achieve on the ego PROFESSIONAL facebook page. Yes bleach is the option lots of highlights and then continue to grow the roots out, you can add semi, demi or colour conditioners to tone and blend as well so that your hair looks great all the time. Alternatively bleach all of the black out as far as the roots, this will take more than one application. Then apply a grey permanent colour or toner which you can maintain easily and as little or often as you please.
