Maddy M asks:
Iíve had the same hairstyle for my entire life, Iíve already decided to grow it out and want to dye it. At the moment I have shoulder length light blonde hair with dark blonde roots, I have very fair skin, blue eyes, and a square face shape. I need help deciding on what colour to dye my hair. Iíd like to go for something unnatural but Iím up to suggestions. It could be multi coloured or a single colour, I would just like situations on what you think could look good with my skin and eyes. I have a very bubbly personality but Iím also pretty shy around people I donít know, so I donít want something to bold like neons. At the moment Iím looking into platinum blonde, white, lavender, and rose gold for hair colours, ant suggestions?

Wow Maddy, go for it!

I love the idea of the cool lavender, blue and silver options they will be perfect and really work well with your skin and eye colour. Have some long layers and maybe a shadow type technique so the colours are more visible when your hair is moving or when your wearing it up. ...More >

Good luck





lynn asks:
Hello, I coloured my hair a few months ago using a red temporary hair colour over my dark brown hair. I decided I was tired of the red staining that was left behind in my hair so I used a dark brown semi-permanent hair dye today to try to cover it. The ends of my hair somewhat took the colour but my roots are pretty much my natural hair colour and the middle of my hair turned out slightly darker but still has very noticeable red patches. Would it be okay to try recolouring my hair in a darker semi-permanent hair dye today? I would love to have it looking as normal as possible before returning to work Monday!

Easy answer is yes, be really precise with the application and process for the whole development time and you should be fine.







Jennifer asks:
Hello, about two months ago I went from my platinum blonde hair to wanting to go back to my natural ash blonde hair. I went to Sallyís beauty salon in Canada and they told me wrong information; I added an ash brown colour straight to my hair and it turned green. Then I went back for correction advice (bad idea) and they told me to add a dark red brown to tone out the green. My mom put a bit too much of the dye on my hair, and it went way too red and became more damaged. I then went to my old high schoolís hair salon, and they added an ash tone to my hair to hide the red. All of these processes happened within a week, and I am upset with myself that I didnít space it out more as my hair became dry and weaker. I have thin fine hair. Now it is two months later, and in inside lighting my hair looks the ashy tone, but outside it is a horrible orange/red auburn colour in the sun and I absolutely hate it. I have so many regrets. Now I am torn between the decision to either dye it a darker brown, or try and get back to my ash blonde or close enough to it, with minimal damage. I dread the idea of having to bleach it, although I feel it wouldnít be too bad if it was stretched out into multiple processes and conditioned thoroughly. I just desperately want this auburn colour gone and an ashy colour as my skin tone is cool, not warm. I really hope you can help me with some advice. It seems the only thing that would gain my full confidence back is a time machine, which is obviously impossible at this time. My mental health has been greatly affected and I just dream of being happy again with myself.
Thank you for your time.

Hi Jennifer

I am so sorry for you, but all is not lost. ...More >

Firstly invest in the best shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask and spray leave in protein conditioner. You will need to have a strict hair care regime of using the treatment mask every time you shampoo for 1 month - leave it for 20 mins and cover with a shower cap. Use the conditioner and comb it through before rinsing. The leave in conditioner is also essential as it strengthens the hair and helps even out the porosity so you will get a more even colour result.

Then using something like baby shampoo or washing up liquid wash your hair leave the solution on your hair for 5 mins rinse and repeat. This again will strip out colour and residue but with soap rather than bleach.

Dry your hair off then apply an ash blonde that is 1 or 2 shades lighter than your desired result apply to the root area first the spray the protein spray onto the rest of your hair. After 15 mins add 10mls of the protein spray to the left over colour mixture and apply to the rest of your hair. Process for 15 mins. After shampooing and using the treatment etc with luck you should have an even ash blonde result. You can always invest in corrective colour conditioner in violet or silver use this and leave for 5 mins if you still have unwanted warm tones. You can replace the normal conditioner with the coloured one.

If you choose to go brown instead you do the same as above with an ash brown.

Good luck and I hope your feeling confident again soon x x
