Madeline asks:
Iíve bleached my hair about 5 times over the course of 6 months, when I got it to a platinum bleach blonde the bottom was darker than the top. I later got an ash colour put on and it looked silvery after I used purple shampoo and you couldnít even tell that the bottom was darker. I then got my roots done and they were very brassy, thinking I could fix it I tried using a titanium temporary colour but it didnít fix the roots and made the top half (minus the roots) gun metal coloured. I then stripped it by using vitamin c tablets and regular non colour safe shampoo. I got my roots bleached and then an ash toner put over, it looked almost like the silver I liked but the bottom was once again darker. now the roots have faded (in ash colour) and are yellow. The bottom is basically just a honey blonde you can barely see ash and the top (minus the roots) are still a little bit ashy. I have no idea how to fix it but I am not allowed to bleach the bottom because it is super damaged and I am scared to do anything but I hate my hair.
thanks so much, hopefully you can help!

Okay so you are going to need to do 3 or 4 colours! ...More >

Roots - I would apply 12.1 with 40 vol for 40 - 60mins Middle - just leave Ends - apply 12.1 with 2 com violet concentrate - apply this for 20 mins so after 40 mins of the roots processing time. Shampoo and then dry of the hair to review the colour. I then think you will need to re apply 12.1 with 10 vol and warm water equal parts all over for up to 20 mins comb it through gently to keep an eye on the change.

Please start using treatment shampoo and conditioner as well as a weekly masque and that way moving forward your hair will be in better condition and you should be able to just do the roots with the 12.1 and colour conditioner to keep the full head even.

Hope this makes sense?

Laura asks:
For over a year now, I have been trying to achieve a medium ash blonde balayage coulor. I started with a red wine shade, that I maintained for years and years. It ended up staining my cuticle, but I would think since I have been going to salon after salon, and none can fix this! it will lighten some, but end up going brassy (after one wash) and the red parts have turned a pinky red! its not a shade Iím happy with. Ive spent around 2500$ seeing multiple "master colourists" and none can do a darker base and beige blonde balayage. The say the can...then under the ash colour comes back a horrible coloured highlight (like goldy) Its driving me absolutely nuts! and not to mention the ever draining bank account. I have an appointment feb 3rd at yet another high end salon. Its my last straw. I have fine curly hair that is quite healthy now, and shoulder length. Basically, I want medium ash on top BEIGE blonde ends. (no colour seeping through) no warm tones, just cool tones.

Its sounds like it has been a nightmare for you!! ...More >

Okay well my first advice is you need to have a gentle bleach bath and clarifying shampoo to make sure there is no possibility of the pinkish tones re occuring.

As I donít know what colour your hair is naturally its difficult for me to suggest the exact shades of colour you need to use.

But once the pink undertones are gone I suggest you ask for a root colour to be a mix of the base level and .1 and .2 this means the tones of the colours applied with be violet and green based so neutralise the possible orange / yellow/ brassy tones. This will need to be mixed with the desired base colour and the correct developer depending how many shades light the roots are compared to your natural colour.

The ends Iím not sure if you want them a lighter blonde with a beige undertone, but if so the bleach bath that was done befiore you started is perfect with a beige blonde colour with 10 vol developer for about 20 mins on the middle and ends of the hair.

You can manage any unwanted tones in between salon vists with colour deposit conditioner in silver if you want to get rid of orange tones and violet if they are more yellow.

Really good luck.
