Kristina asks:
Hello, I have chin length hair, very thin but wavy. My hair was badly damaged as I was colouring my hair very often and not always by professional; So I decided to grow back my natural hair. At the moment I have half natural hair and bit oily scalp and half very dry and tangly coloured hair. My question is what kind of shampoo I would need to use. I tried to research but everywhere articles for colour treated hairs. I want to find shampoo and conditioner which is natural, organic and for my hair type. Please help I would appreciate any advise or tips. Thank you in advance.

Hi Kristina

Happy New Year to you! ...More >

Okay my first suggestion is to have a trim, this way you will prevent the coloured, damaged and tangled hair from getting worse. You are correct using shampooís for coloured damaged hair will make your hair feel lank and make your scalp oily.

I suggest that you invest in a professional shampoo called a balancing shampoo, it wonít be organic but will have lots of plant based ingredients and be kind to your scalp and hair. It doesnít matter which brand you buy as all of the professional ones are very similar but the formula will feel very light, not create lots of bubbles and shouldnít look opaque it should be practically clear in color. This way it doesnít have oils and creams that will weight your hair down and increase oil production. I love the Redken, Joico, Paul Mitchell and Nioxin brands best and a salon will be able to help advise you. My suggested shampoo wonít make the coloured hair feel great but you can manage that with conditioner, only apply a very small amount to the mid lengths and ends of your hair and comb through very gently, leave a few minutes before rinsing.

There are some amazing coloured conditioners available in salons as well as on the highstreet and could be a great solution to the fact you are only halfway through the growing out process, they are not permanent but will tone and blend the hair all over and you have total control as its deposit is more obvious the more often you use it.

Take care and good luck

Mariya asks:
Im planning to color my dark brown hair with reddish tint to light silver. I would like a step by step process and some help with understanding toning after bleaching. I havent colored for at least 5 months. Last time i did it was regular box color burgundy hence the red in my hair,at least on the ends. I have semi thin hair and its a bit past shoulder length. These are the products i bought. Wella blondor bleach, wella 20 & 30vol developers, joico blue shampoo, matrix purple shampoo and conditioner, wella toner t14 & t18, and marc daniels purple leave in conditioner. How much of bleach and developer do i have to mix? Says the ratio is 1:2 or 1:1.5 and which toner do i have to use first? Also once i get the light blonde color what silver dye do i use?

Hi Mariya

Well this is a big job for you to do on your own hair and I wouldnít normally recommend that you take the challenge on yourself! My advice is that if you use the bleach with 30 vol mixed in equal parts and apply to the mid lengths and ends, cover with a plastic cap and leave for 30 mins. Shampoo the formula away and hopefully you will be at orange. Remix and apply the same formula to the root and spray some protein/ porosity equalizer conditioner on the mid lengths and ends and take the formula through. Cover again and process for around 30 mins up to 45 mins. Hopefully you should reach a yellow or pale yellow! Shampoo well and apply a treatment in order to condition the hair and scalp also to help even out the porosity. ...More >

Iím not familiar with either of the toners but I guess they are blue/ violet based so mix both with 10 vol / 3% developer and apply all over, comb through and process for up to 20mins.

Shampoo, rinse and repeat if required. You can then use you coloured shampoos and conditioners to balance the unwanted warm tones further.

Good luck and I do hope this helps

Emma asks:
Hello there..are you able to help me please as Iím getting really stressed out about my hair colour. For the last 12 years Iíve coloured my hair with a 9% peroxide, 12/0 Wella Koleston and 12/89 Wella Koleston.

Iím naturally blonde but if I didnt colour it now it would be a dark blonde now. Over the last year the colour isnít taking... it goes real brassy with grey sections. It was lovely before.. a nice light blonde colour. Iíve asked a few hairdressers and they have said to change from a 9% to a 12% peroxide.

Iím worried to do this though as I have a sensitive scalp. I have horrible brassy hair now and I donít know what to do.

Thanks Emma

Hi Emma

The 12% suggestion is correct but if you are worried about you scalp you could try adding an inch of violet concentrate into your current formula and processing for an extra 5 mins, also using a violet conditioner that will help neutralize unwanted warm tones? ...More >

Thanks and goodluck
