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

Millie asks:
Hi, I am 44 years old and my hair seems to be getting thinner and thinner especially around my fringe area, the hair seems rather brittle around my temples, it get greasy really quick so I find I have to wash it everyday, to make it look acceptable I have to flow dry and straighten as otherwise itís rather frizzy even if I leave to dry naturally. I seem to loose a lot of hair when washing/drying more than 100, so washing everyday is making my problem worse, id love not to have to wash it everyday and for it to look thicker and healthier, itís mid length at present although I try and keep it just touching my shoulders as short hair doesnít suit me and if I grow it longer it look lank and lifeless, I have tried skin hair and nail supplements more 4 month now but no change, is there a shampoo that will reduce my hair getting so greasy and that promotes hair growth and strength? I did used to have really thick curly hair but fear the straighteners over the years have done major damage.

Hello Millie

Well done for taking the supplements, donít give up as there will be a difference you just need them as well as a combination of other things. ...More >

I would suggest you take a look at the following you may find the documents above helpful:

- Take a look at your diet as sometimes adding in a few vital nutrient rich foods can make a difference

- Ask in a professional salon for a protein based shampoo, or if you want to select one yourself choose a formula where the liquid is clear not opaque as still will mean it doesnít contain to many conditioning ingredients that will make the hair greasy

- Use dry shampoo, there are now coloured versions which are dry for keeping your hair looking fresh and adding a little volume

- Try not to touch your hair too much throughout the day as it can become a habit and makes the hair greasy more quickly

- This one sounds crazy but be careful applying your moisturizer, it again can make the hair greasy but there has been linked to potential thinning hair lines on women

- If you take medication, perhaps consult your doctor as there are so many that have side effects that can seriously effect hair such as contraceptive pills especially if they have been taken over a long period of time Have a trim, use a treatment mask at least weekly and Iím sure over the next month or 2 you will see improvement, if you donít perhaps consult a trichologist and they will carry out some blood tests and help you get to the bottom of the problem.

Good luck
