Stacey asks:
I used to home dye my hair a very light blonde so that it was almost white, I then coloured it a medium blonde just to ítone it downí. I did this for several years and once I had my baby, I found the upkeep of retouching my roots every fortnight too high maintenance on top of running around after a small child.

So I then coloured my hair a dark brown and that was that. 8 months after colouring hair dark, itís all washed out and it had changed into a copper colour along with about 2 inches of my natural dark hair which had came through at the roots. My hair was in fairly good condition and I made the decision that I fancied going baylage cos I missed being blonde but wanted a more natural look and less maintenance.

Chose a top salon which is popular and I described how I wanted it. She put a black hair dye on the roots of my hair, left it for a while then put blonde on the rest of my hair with foils. I was slightly confused at this as I thought baylage was íhand paintedí and didnít use foils. Kept quiet cos I thought well she knows what sheís doing. Once washed off, it basically looked the same as it did before except my roots were darker and the copper bits were blonder. I paid the £70 and left. They uploaded pics of my hair onto social media calling it a íshadowed rootí so Iím confused why they did this and not what I asked for? They do do baylage in their salon as Iíve seen photos of other girls getting their hair coloured the way I want it. I feel a bit disappointed that Iíve paid £70 for it to look the same, nobody has noticed it and I feel I look more dark haired than I do blonde

Hi Stacey

If I was you I would go back with a screen shot of the posted the salon used for social media saying that you are disappointed and confused and you would like it re done free of charge with the balayage technique. I would suggest that as they didnít ask your permission to use the image and its wasnít what you wanted done it seems the fair thing to do. Iím sure the salon will look after you, we all want happy clients you are our biggest adverts after all. ...More >

Good luck,

Hi Stephanie

Yes you can, just make sure you use some protein leave in conditioner before applying, spray it directly on to dry hair. This will prevent the ash going to green or grey on the more porous areas of your previously coloured more porous hair. ...More >

Thank you x







Rose asks:
I have never dyed my hair before and looking into having a temporary hair dye in to see if I like my hair coloured or not. At the moment my hair is a dark strawberry blonde/light Auburn coloured and my eyebrows are very blonde. My hair is naturally slightly wavy and never keeps curls when styling and worried that the colour will take to certain parts of the hair and not others as its quite unruly. Is there any advice you could give?

Hi Rose

Your hair sounds beautiful, if you want to add temporary colour you are very limited and can only go darker or add tone. ...More >

Donít worry that the colour will take unevenly as generally the consistency of the formula is easy to work through the hair and you can always use a protein leave in conditioner to ensure a more uniform result. But I think you should think about having some lighter pieces through your hair that give your hair a more multi tonal effect and blend with your brows? You could have a very soft balayage effect that would look really naturally and its fairly commitment free as far as having to have it done regular. If you didnít like it (Iím sure you would) you could use the temporary option to blend it away. As far as not holding a curl sometimes hair needs more moisture in it in order to create and hold shape so use a moisture mask weekly and make sure when your curling to not use the chosen tool too hot and let the curls cool down before fiddling and styling. Heat creates shape and cool fixes it so longer lasting style if you leave hot hair time to cool.

Good luck,

Kala x
