I am 43 and have really gray hair. I have had it coloured by a hairdresser for the last six years back to my natural dark brown colour. My hairdresser uses Redken hair products. Six weeks ago, about 6 hours after the colour my head was burning, this resulted in some hair loss and a rash covering my whole body. This has cleared up but after several skin tests I react. I am now going really grey! Please help?

Sorry to hear of your problem. This is a tricky one, you are obviously allergic to one of the main ingredients in a full colour. This can be quite dangerous if your allergy is extreme. First of all - Do not attempt to use any colouring product yourself from the major chemist chains or shops - most of them will contain the ingredient you are allergic to. I suggest you have many skin tests with other manufacturerís colours such as Goldwell Top Chic and Colourance - Wella Koleston or Colour Touch or Schwarzkopf or Aveda colour. ...More >
Redken is an American product and are usually very strong in chemicals. The ones I have suggested are European and far more gentle on the hair and scalp. If this fails - you only have one other choice - Vegetable Colours such as Henna. Henna does come in several shades and works well on most grey hair.
On another note your allergy may well disappear in the same way it suddenly started.

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!

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.
