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 didn’t 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
I’m 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 didn’t 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.

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 shampoo’s 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 won’t be organic but will have lots of plant based ingredients and be kind to your scalp and hair. It doesn’t 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 shouldn’t look opaque it should be practically clear in color. This way it doesn’t 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 won’t 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
