Fero asks:
Hi. Iím 37 female and I used to have a very thick, dark curly hair and I straightened it 6 years ago. I also having grey hair since I was 25, which colour to cover grey. I have been having a long hair close to my waist. bcoz of the continuous colouring and straightening my hair is very frizzy and experienced hairfall few times. Now, I need to cut my hair extremely short and I want the straight hair look. pls advice me on pros and cos of it. If I cut it very short, how often should I maintain grey coverage? how short should I go? Iím bit chubby and my stylist advised I should not cut my hair shorter because of that. I have more of a square shaped face and Iím an analyst at stock market.

Well where do I start, short hair would be great and very much easier for you to maintain keeping smooth, straight, good conditioned and covering the grey. I would recommend going for a layered bob with a soft side fringe, the layers and soft fringe help soften square shape faces, just below the chin is a good place to start length wise as itís easy to manage. ...More >

You could have a smoothing treatment that lasts around 4 months and sometimes longer if you use the correct moisturing shampoo and conditioners.

The colour would be a re-application every 4 weeks just on the root area and by using a conditioning masque weekly and a blowdry smoothing lotion you will have the well conditioned silky bob thatís very flattering on all women of all shapes and sizes and easy to look after.

Good luck and I hope this is helpful?

Iím always experimenting with my hair but in 2 weeks I have my formal/prom and am needing to go golden blonde in order to blend with my extensions my hair is naturally blonde but I also coloured it grey but whenever I apply colour it fades very quickly so now my hair is all sorts of shades and I donít know what to do !?

Hi Lucie

My advice would be to get a clarifying shampoo and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing and repeating. Then dry you hair very carefully until its about 80% dry without conditioner. ...More >

If you then apply a golden colour conditioner or semi permanent colour due to the fact the hair will be deeply cleansed, no residue from the old colour and practically dry and should take week. To prevent fading get your hair in amazing condition by using a masque weekly, this way your hairs porosity will become more even and the future colours will fade less.

Enjoy your prom.

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?
