Andrea asks:
I have naturally brown hair I have dyed my hair black for about a year and a half which I grew tired of, I wanted it a light golden brown for the summer, I bleached my hair a few times which left it very red at the mid lengths and yellowy at the roots, which I think is because there was a build up of colour at the ends, I then used a medium ash blonde a few shades lighter than I wanted to be I think it was a 9/1 I wanted to be a 7/1. I have coloured it a few times now my hair is a tad too light at the top. But I like it and could bare it, but the mids and ends are still very red, my hair is in ok condition the elasticity isnít too bad but its quite porous, also I have very thick long hair, could you give me any advice on how I could achieve the colour I want without spending a fortune, hopefully Iím almost there, I have been doing this over a ĺ month space of time too rest my hair in between but Iím getting restless now.

You are correct the reason the mid-lengths and ends are still red and not as light as the scalp is the build up of colour. Your options are to continue as you are until eventually your hair grows long enough that you can actually cut the darker ends off. The second option is to lift the ends again to the same color your hair lifted at the scalp area, you will need to use a bleach but my question would be can your hair handle this process again? It sounds like you feel it is already damaged on the ends so unfortunately if that is the case you are stuck with cutting the darker area.

Jennie asks:
I had the underneath of my hair coloured brown for two years, the top is blonde, went to hairdresser and asked to change the brown back to blonde, now it is a orange ginger, that I donít like can I put something on it myself to make it blonde like the top, without going to the hairdresser as I have all ready spent £160 on my hair, I have very thick long to the shoulder hair?

First please do not try this yourself! Go back to the salon that performed the colour service for you and explain the problem and your concerns. A good salon should correct this for you or compensate you for your trouble. If you do not get any joy from your hairdresser then please look for another and see if they would be willing to correct your colour on a training night.

Doing this yourself is very, very risky and I would not recommend it.

Gemma asks:
A mobile stylist highlighted my hair but I donít like the rusty colour she has produced with bleach can I just dye over the whole lot

Please do not do it.

This is much more difficult than you may think. If you are confident enough then ask the hairdresser who coloured your hair for advice and inform him/her of your concerns. If you have lost confidence in your stylist then try and find a new one that you can trust in.
