Jessica asks:
I have always had light blonde highlights and over the past few months have also had a base break so my roots are lighter. My hair is naturally curly and just below my shoulders. The last time I got my hair done she cut and coloured it. My stylist put some shorter layers in it as that is what I requested. She styled it straight and then used a thinning shear all over. I donít have really thick hair at all and was upset she used it. Now it feels a lot thinner and I feel like my curl is not as defined as it was. How long does it take for your hair to recover after a stylist uses the thinning shears? Does it damage your hair? How can I fix the damage? I should have asked her why she was doing that but I assumed she knew what she was doing. She knows I have curly hair and usually I wear it curly... So Iím not sure why she did that!

There is good and bad in every profession and I think you have just experienced the later. NOT TO WORRY. I would not EVER recommend using thinners for someone who styles their hair curly. This definitely reduces the curl result and definition. The stylist probably thinned the ends to remove the cutting lines that were visible after having your layered when dried straight. ...More >

I would recommend having a weave cut. By this I actually mean sections of your hair been taken as if to colour it when having weave highlights. Then each of the "weave" pieces in each section are cut at different lengths with scissors. This will thicken your thinned ends that have been put in previously.

It is really difficult and I can understand your frustration but when you have long curly hair the last think you want is normal layers introducing or your ends thinned.

The weave cut will help remedy some of your problem depending how far up your hair they went while thinning.





Pat asks:
I had my hair coloured with a permanent hair colour, matrix copper dark blonde and hate the colour. My natural hair colour is dark golden blonde. What can I put on my hair to get this copper red out?

Hi Pat - I think I would leave the colour as it is now and just add a very fine highlight to it, otherwise youíre going to have to strip the colour you have now, right out and it will affect the condition of your hair.







Cassandra asks:
I am a 17 year old girl, who has used an excessive amount of black hair dye. It was a phase I went through and now I can not do a thing with it! I put some coloured hair extensions to spice things up, but again I grew bored of them. I was wondering is there a good way to lighten up my dark hair without completely destroying it and looking tacky?

Unfortunately the only thing you can do to remove the black hair colour is to bleach and lift the black colour out, which can be quite damaging if not done professionally. Your stylist should be able to advise you if they feel your hair can handle being bleached and to what level it will be possible to lift to without being over processed. I would recommend that if you do lighten it, to do it in pieces as oppose to your entire head and do it gradually over time.
