Jenny asks:
I have naturally curly hair but I straighten it all the time, I want it to be longer, I thought about hair extensions. I also color my hair and my question is- can I get extensions although I have to blow-out my hair to straighten it and what about the colouring?

Extensions are suitable for some curly hair but it really does depend on how curly. Racoon extensions are available in a natural wave that can be styled straight if required but they also have fabulous curly hair too. If you prefer your hair straight then you can blow-dry your hair and the extension hair straight. I would suggest natural hair rather than synthetic as this tends to be just straight. It would be best to have a consultation (call Racoon on 01295 770999 for your nearest salon) and they will be able to discuss the texture of extensions required. In regards to colour, hair extensions can be applied on coloured hair (again, a consultation is necessary to determine the strength of the hair). Racoon can actually colour match your hair exactly so that the extensions hair blends to your own. However, if you do colour your hair, ensure that you have your roots coloured prior to your consultation as the hair will be matched exactly - its no good changing the colour afterwards!

Tasmin asks:
Okay so Iíve bought a manic panic dark reddish hair dye and Iím just wondering the best way to lighten my dark brown hair just a little bit so the red will take. I donít want to lighten my hair too light just down a shade or 2 if that makes sense. Would it work if I just used a blonde hair dye or is it a case of trying to strip it. I donít really like the idea of stripping or bleaching as I donít want to damage my hair too much thank you for your advice in advance

If you hair is naturally dark brown then you should be able to use red colour with 6% or 20 volume developer and have a great result. However if your hair is coloured dark brown with artificial colour you will need to pre lighten it, there are some very good ones available on the high street if having it done at a salon isnít an option. Just follow the instructions exactly. ...More >

Good luck

Daisy asks:
I have waist length, naturally dark brown hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted the Balayage style with a slightly lighter brown. After the treatment, I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís blotchy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry. I had no split ends before this but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because itís often damaging and I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour).

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.
