Vistie Marsden asks:
I am so sick of my frizzy hair! I have tried everything from sulphate free shampoo to deep conditioners and frizz remedies and so many different brands! I use hair mousse, I use leave in conditioner, I always rinse my hair in cold water after washing and I use a diffuser. It seems to be dry like straw and Iíve had enough of it! I even made a concoction from things in my cupboard such as peanut butter, lime, coconut oil, olive oil and apple cider vinegar as a hair mask. What do I do? The ends of my hair donít appear to be split but are rough to touch. I have not coloured my hair so I do not know what is wrong?! Any advice?

Hello vistie, naturally curly hair is lacking in moisture , so make sure any treatments are moisture based not protein based or you could be making the problem worse. Zinc deficiencies can cause the hair to be dry and brittle so a good hair supplement can help your hair from the inside. Use a styling cream on your hair rather than mousse as this can dry hair out , leave to dry naturally or only take the worst of the moisture out with a diffuser. As the hair will form better curls and take moisture in whilst drying naturally.

Valerie asks:
I dyed my hair a week ago and have noticed that I missed some of my roots. Is it safe for me to dye my hair again so soon?

Yes it is, although, I would always recommend that you get your hair coloured by an expert; what you are paying for is the colouristís expertise, the knowledge that they are choosing the exact shade to suit your skin tone, and applying it correctly. The results will also last longer. Preparation for colouring your hair is far more important than the application stage, and once youíre booked in to a salon, they will do a patch test to ensure your safety and offer a full consultation to discuss your needs, hair type and the results that can be achieved. The starting cost for a Global Colour at one of our Westrow salons is £48, but you can take advantage of one of our offers and save up to 25%. Visit for more details.

Bailey asks:

I have hair colour similar to #60 (Super white, ash blonde hair and am looking to achieve a medium natural dark brown with a golden tinge). I understand I need to use a filler colour so I bought a red mousse leave in colour. I applied the mousse to a strand, left in and re-coloured with a permanent base colour 6 (66/0 Koleston ). Once i washed it all out, I ended up with a reddy brown colour almost mahogany with a tint of purple.

Can you recommend how I can achieve just a natural medium-dark brown without any tinges or hits of the red?

Thank you!

Hi Bailey

I would never recommend using a mousse for a number of reasons, for example if you to go more than 2 shades darker than the current colour itís not long lasting enough and quite often the direct dye content can overpower the end result, so exactly whatís happened to you. ...More >

I would suggest you give the hair a few shampoos with a clarifying shampoo, then apply and natural base of a 7 over what you currently have, this way the red you have used twice should be stable enough as the filler, the one shade lighter (7) means the hair wonít go to dark but the fact itís a natural colour should netralise a bit of the mahogany and leave you with a more natural brown thatís more golden. After a few more washes the red will completely go then you can use a 6.3 and have you desired result.

Good luck.
