I have a client who has a perm in her hair and has it coloured copper. She gets her perm done elsewhere so I am not sure what perm they are using.
My problem is that when I colour her hair the roots come up a nice bright copper (Level 8) but when the colour is put through the ends it comes up a dark purple colour. The last time her hair was permed was over 8 weeks ago. Last night I wanted to brighten up the ends with a few foils. I thought I would try using the same colour with 30 vol peroxide just to see if it would brighten up a few pieces. The foils went dark purple so I had to use some bleach to get rid of it. I am using a straight copper tint level 8. Any ideas would be most appreciated.

This is maybe caused because the ends of the hair are more porous and dry therefore you need to get the correct balance of the hair. Try lowering the peroxide on the mid-lengths and ends.

All my life Iíve had naturally, voluminous curly hair. I highlighted it a few years ago and after noticing how dry it made my hair I stopped but eventually had to cut it short because of how damaged it was. Iíve been growing it out ever since and recently Iíve noticed that my hair has been frizzy, dry, and the roots, which always had volume, have been flat while the ends are the same as they always were. Iíve been dying it at home using the Naturals collection from Clairol for a while but itís only started getting frizzy and dry the last few months. My hair is all one length and I have an oval shaped face. Is there anything I can do that wonít require me to stop dying it?

So many women are affected day to day by frizz - in fact 90% of women suffer with dry, brittle or frizzy hair as the hair is lacking in moisture. It is so important to allow moisture to get inside the hair follicles to achieve smooth, shiny and healthy hair especially when youíre colouring which can lead to damaged and broken hair. If you find that your hair is going frizzy then I suggest that you start using an intensive treatment regularly as this will help to repair damaged follicles, improve porosity, elasticity and general health and appearance. I also suggest using a regular treatment like my Hot Shots 2 Minute Miracle Repair. This helps to restore the moisture balance in your hair whilst stimulating and increasing circulation. Basically what this means is that your hair follicles can absorb more nutrients, improving the growth rate and the health so you can banish the dreaded frizz. As you colour your hair you should definitely use a shampoo and conditioner that protects the colour. My Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner would be perfect, as its gentle formula is designed especially for over-stressed coloured hair. The shampoo is formulated with UV filters to help give longer life to coloured locks, so rather than washing the colour out, you are washing much needed love and care in. Finish off with the ultra nourishing conditioner and your colour will not only be safe but will sparkle with health!

For about 2 years Iíve been having my hair bleached blonde (by
a professional hairdresser) but Iím fed up of it now. Itís in a bad
condition (dry and brittle) and Iíd prefer a more natural colour. Iím
aware that the bleach cannot be removed to get my natural colour back, but
I read somewhere that it can be dyed red followed by a colour to closely
match your natural shade? Iím unsure whether this would be a wise route to
take, because I donít want it to turn out a big mess. Iíve also considered
the option of growing out my bleached hair, whilst dying the roots a light
blonde to avoid too much contrast between my natural mousy-brown colour
and the platinum blonde. Would you recommend either of these methods?
Preferably, I would like to avoid anything that would require professional
assistance as it can be very expensive.

Be particularly careful when changing the colour of your hair at home. You must remember to put the protein back in to keep hair lustrous and beautiful as colouring can strip it of goodness. To go back to brunette from bleach blonde is something best done in two stages. In order to go back to brunette you firstly need to dye your hair red as if you simply try and dye your hair from bleach blonde to brunette it will go green! Once your hair is red you can then apply a medium brown colour on top of this, I would suggest starting with a lighter brown colour at first as it is easy to go a shade darker or two than waiting for far too dark brown hair to fade. If you havenít dyed your hair before I would really recommend going to a hairdressers and having it done properly as it is easy for things to go wrong when youíre dying your hair for the first time. Once youíre back to brunette I would recommend using my Colour Love Shampoo and Conditioner which act as deeply intensive moisturizers, to refresh and revitalize coloured hair. The luxuriously thick formulas will help to repair the damage and drying effects that colouring hair can causeÖ..keeping colour vibrant and hair in fantastic condition. Colour specific products are an absolute must for putting the moisture back in after hair has been left battered and bruised by different colour processes. In between visits to the salon, disguise root re-growth with either of my TWO shades of new Dry Shampoo Ė Iíve brought out a mid-brown and dark!
