I have JUST turned 17, and over the past 7 or 8 months I have noticed that I have loads of grey hairs scattered around my hair. As more and more people point them out it is becoming more and more important to do something about them. I have never coloured my hair before, and I was wondering if you could advise me on any shampoos on the market to help greys or help me with the best home colouring kit, brand etc. to use, I don't want to pay loads for the colour but I still want it to be affective and natural looking. Thank you for any advice you can give me. p.s Do not suppose anyone might know what could be causing this premature greying?

Grey hair is caused by loss of pigment which can be resultant of strong medication, shock or pregnancy to name but a few reasons. Having an all over tint would eliminate any grey, but might cause a more distinct grey re-growth. Opting for some lighter streaks might help to blend the grey and give a more natural look without heavy roots. Visit your nearest salon for a consultation and discuss booking in on a model night for a more economical option. Always avoid home colouring as a box colour will not guarantee the right results and can heavenly worsen condition.

I have very dark hair (almost black) and have been dying my roots for the last 4 years to hide the onset of grey. I am now 38 & 6 weeks ago decided to take the plunge and get my hair professionally highlighted. I got lovely fine caramel highlights all over, which looked great and I bought anti-fade colour products to keep it good. After a couple of weeks it started to look really ginger - what went wrong? It was so not the look I was expecting and do not want it to happen again. I went to a good salon and thought I would be safe! How can I stop it changing colour like this again?

To stop it looking so orange at the moment you can ask for a toner, just to tone the orange down slightly. Ask for a Ash Blue Toner. If you have already coloured your hair all over dark again then there is a new product by Redken with has been formulated for very dark hair and coloured hair. It is Coloured Colour Fusion Browns depending on how much red tone you have in your hair naturally you will need either a Ash/Blue tone or Ash/Gold.

I had my hair coloured in December. I have very dark hair naturally and I went into a salon to have blonde highlights put through it. However, when it was finished, the blonde started about 2 inches away from my roots and did not look very good, I complained about it and the hairdresser told me that you have to leave a large expansion gap when using bleach in foils and if I wanted the blonde to be near my roots, I should have had a full head colour because you cannot get any foil close to the root, can you give me your opinion?
|Answered By: |
To be honest two inches does seem a very noticeable amount from the root. It is true that you cannot get exactly too the root area but it is usually close enough not to notice it, especially as its just been coloured. I would perhaps speak to the manager of the salon and see if they can help.
