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.

Tracy asks:
My hair is just below my shoulders and straight with a few layers at the bottom, it appears to be in very good condition and is extremely shiny (it is coloured as I am going grey). In the last six months I have had real problems with what looks like a top layer of frizz on top of my head. My hairdresser said its new hair but as it is growing it just seems to frizz, I say frizz but Iím not sure if itís flyaway, it doesnít appear to have a different texture to the rest of my hair so I donít think it is because of the grey. I have spent a fortune on so many products and the only thing that calms this down and makes it look better is Trevor Sorbieís products for straight hair however there is something in it that really irritates my scalp and I end up with terrible dandruff and itchy scalp when I use it. I have tried so many other products for frizzy hair or for straight hair (including John Frieda Frizz ease) but it seems that everything irritates my scalp. The only thing that stops my scalp being like this is Daniel Fieldís scalp therapy shampoo, it gives me a lovely clean and dry free scalp but makes my hair look worse, which means I am constantly adding serum or other similar products to the top of my hair to stop this frizz (which seem to sink in after an hour and the frizz comes back) I am getting so fed up about this and can not afford to keep buying so many expensive products especially when they donít do what they say they will do and as I say if it wasnít for the scalp problem I would happily stick with Trevor Sorbie products for better looking hair. Please advise me what I can do as I have never had a problem with my hair before this and it is really getting me down. By the way I do use straighteners but only used to use them on the very ends of my hair for a few seconds but now I have to use them right from the scalp which is worrying me that I may end up actually damaging the shorter frizzy hair at the top.

It sounds like you need a complete overhaul of your hair-care routine! Begin by using a good, nourishing hair care regime, such as Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo-relax (£52.25 for the set). These products have been designed specifically for dry, sensitised hair and though relatively expensive, are fairly concentrated so you only need to use small amounts; dispensing about the size of a walnut in the palm of your hand each time. Next, when hair is still damp, apply a serum to control any particularly frizzy hair. I would recommend Fudge Unleaded De Frizz (£8.95) this controls hair whilst smoothing and polishing. If you are worried about damaging your hair whilst styling then why not try a protective cream such as LíOreal Hot Style Iron Finish (£12.30) on the sections you straighten. Finally, to fix your style and add further control use some Fudge Skyscraper hairspray (£8.50), which will fix your finished style and banish your frizz from returning!

Ann asks:
I have been having my hair coloured and then highlights on top. I cannot afford to keep having this done and just want highlights to cover some grey at the front do I have to wait for the blonde to grow out completely and then get it cut or can they take the colour out and then highlight it.

What a question!!!

If you have been having blonde full head colour then highlights on top (which I think is what you are saying)? I would recommend having woven highlights (T section) through the top of your hair cut until your full head colour grows out. ...More >

This is by far the simplest way and most cost effective way to get around your problem.
