Mina Winter asks:
Last week I went to the hairdressers and my hair was a medium brown colour with dark roots. I asked them if they could dye it grey, leaving my dark roots since this is quite trendy now. They assessed my hair in a consultation. They asked for £75, I agreed. I went and came out with 50 different colours in my hair but it was fine because they all looked grey. Then I washed my hair a few days later with regular shampoo and my hair was green and orange at the top. Went back and they said it was because I didnít use silver shampoo. I was sceptical of this because it was just after 1 wash and such a dramatic colour change. So they tried to fix it and made it even worse. Now there were 100 colours in my hair from dark brown to grey with green orange and yellow in. I got really upset because I even had a hair consultation and they told me they could get my hair like that. Then they asked me what dye I home coloured with before and I said Garnier Olia- apparently it created an oil barrier so they couldnít do anything. They then put a dark brown in my hair after all that damage. Came out fine but way darker than I would like. I was so angry and Iím never going back there. They didnít even give me a refund. My question is after this natural black colour if I use a normal shampoo or try to fade the colour what will happen?

Hey Mina.

Okay, so I can see the journey you have taken, and there are many reasons on why you have ended up with multi-tone hair, but lets stick with your main question. ...More >

Colour fade shampoos will help maintain the colour and slow down or prevent colour fade.

However as this is not what you want I would recommend a shampoo that is going to look after the condition of your hair. Redkenís Extreme would be a great choice , this is because your hair has been through a lot by de-colourizing (using bleach) to lift your hair.

As the fade will happen over time, I would not try to lift it with any chemical process at the moment, and if that is something you are looking into then you should see a stylist. Tell them exactly what you had on your hair pre your last experiences and then everything that has been applied during that experience.

They will do a strand test to see if it is possible, do not try any of this at home.

However I would recommend waiting a few weeks to see where the shade has lifted to, then naturally re-evaluate.

All the best,

Gary





Amy asks:
I donít know what to do with my hair! It is so unmanageable the only thing I can do it put it in a ponytail! I have very thick, Nordic, wavy and frizzy hair, and I have no control over it whatsoever. It just lives its own life on top of my head. I donít mind my waves, but what could I use to kind of collect the waves? Right now each strand of hair is wavy in a unique direction creating wild and frizzy hair. And I would also appreciate advice on how I could get a more straight hair for those special occasions without losing absolutely all volume after applying a flattening iron. It seems like I have to choose between frizzy hair and flat hair. I never blowdry my hair, or use any other hot tools. All I use is shampoo and hair balm and towel dry my hair, brush it and then let it dry in a ponytail in the neck. I dry it this way or else I get this lion-mane on my head, although this makes my hair look kind of weird. It is straight to the point where the hair band has been, and wavy and curly beneath. I want MORE volume above my ears, but less below them you could say. I have tried straightening my hair with a flattening iron, but this just seems to remove my waves, the frizz is still there. I have also tried various serums, but they had no effect whatsoever. Iím so tired of struggling with my hair, please give me some advice! I have slightly layered hair to just beneath my shoulders if that matters.

Itís very simple - the long awaited and soon to be here Keratin Revolution Blonde has all the same regular benefits as KR regular but with the added intensity for un-ruley hair and off course to compliment blonde coloured hair. It will soften the hair and add lustre. The beauty is, that with flat irons you will further endorse smoothness and longevity; however, without it, will facilitate ease of management and de-frizz the hair.







Liz asks:
Hi! I have white hair (I am in my 60ís) and have it highlighted using foils to achieve a blonde ímixí. For the first week after my hair is coloured, the highlights are a steel grey colour and then gradually go blonde. Ideally I would like caramel highlights, but efforts every time are left with me having this first week of steel grey. Why is this? Is there a solution?

You should stay away from a bleach highlight and make sure they use a warm golden toner on your hair. Mature Grey hair requires more of a deposit of colour and tone as opposed to lifting or bleaching. In terms of selecting the correct tone for you, stay away from ashier colors and toners as mature skin tones need a warmer shade to lift the complexion. Honey and scotch blondes will make your hair look healthier and your skin will benefit too!
