Lisa asks:
Hi, I have mid brown cropped hair which has been coloured and cut ever month. I had bleached my hair and gone lilac, when that grew out I dyed my hair a red brown. I had my hair bleached yesterday and the tips were orange, the rest very brassy. I have put lilac on but it did very little (usually works but had grey roots and blue tips), I tried again but no better so wasted money on hair colour stripper from Sainsburyís which has now made my hair greeny blonde. Please help none of our hairdressers are open tomorrow and I canít leave it like this so would greatly appreciate some advice especially if I can get to lilac without having to go dark to cover up this mess. Thank you

Hi Lisa

Try a deep cleanse or clarifying shampoo, left on for 15mins rinse and repeat. As there was blonde underneath and I guess the brassiness and orange are left over residue from the red brown it should shift it. You should then be able to try the lilac again but apply to dry hair and add 10 mins to the processing time. ...More >

Good luck

Lynne asks:
Why does my warm brown coloured hair tend to go coppery in the sun?

Kala KilshawAnswered By:

The natural underlying tone of warm brown is orange and so when the sun fades the colour or its reflected under light it will look copper. The only way to counteract this is by either changing to a cool brown or using an ash or cool based conditioner. ...More >

Hope this helps explain x

Lizelle asks:
Good day. About 6-7 weeks ago I coloured my hair black for an event and Iím naturally blonde. My hair grows about 1,5cm (+-1inch) a month, so as can think my roots are looking disgusting. I donít want to keep my hair black, Iíd like to be blonde again. I donít have the finances to go to a salon. Do you perhaps have any advice on home remedies I can try? Or any cheaper way of doing it?

Wow Lizelle

Must have been some event! The positive news is as you have only done it once and straight over the top of blonde hair it is actually easier to remove. The couple of options that you have are Ė buy a decolourant and follow the instructions exactly there are some great ones available on the market, but you must follow the instructions. Other option is to add some bleach powder, peroxide20 vol (6%) and washing up liquid, apply to wet hair massage and comb through and keep combing for 20 mins, shampoo, rinse and repeat if needed. This may not get you blonde but it will make the hair much lighter and the colour will continue to fade. ...More >

Hope this helps?
