Tracy asks:
My hair is coloured Koleston perfect 55/46 on top and 22/0 underneath. I have recently had a perm. It took really well on the dark hair but on the red hair it is like chewing gum. Could the red colour be affected differently?

There is nothing quite like a brilliant red as you had 55/46. But, if your hair is not in perfect condition it would be affected by a perm, also if the perm solution was too strong for your hair type it may have caused this problem. Strong reds and perms often do not mix well. It was not the colour that caused this, it was the perm. From your description. It sounds to me that your hair is ruined , as I am not liking the words chewing Gum. What I suggest is to opt for a straighter look again and have a total restyle. Get as much as the perm out as possible. In the meantime, use strong red shade from the Colour Fresh range all over the red part of your hair- these are true semi permanent shade that will add great tone and shine to your hair. You can continue to use Koleston on the roots, but feed the ends with Colour Fresh. Also use a treatment at least 3 times a week until your hair begins to feel in better condition.

Maryanne asks:
I have dry frizzy hair that has been coloured in the past. I have not coloured it for the past 6 months but it is still really dry. Would it be a bad idea to get a perm because I really like curls but do not have time to spend curling it myself.

I would suggest getting it shaped and the ends taken off before having a perm and after keep the condition of it up with treatments.

Mai asks:
I am 39, is it good and safe to use baby shampoo?

Baby shampoo is very gentle on the hair and scalp but may not be effective enough for the cleansing needs of adult hair, or able to provide your hair with the conditioning it needs. Also, if you have had chemical processes carried out on your hair such as colouring or perming, baby shampoo does not have the ingredients required to keep your colour fresh and maintain the life of your colour or perm. ...More >

In addition to this coloured and chemically treated hair requires use of shampoo and conditioner that helps the hair retain strength and moisture and nurtures the condition of your hair and scalp. You do not mention what hair type you have or anything about the health of your scalp so I would strongly advise that you visit a professional salon (you can find your nearest one on the ‘Find a Salon’ section of for a hair and scalp consultation.

During this consultation the stylist will analyse your hair and scalp and will be able to advise on what types of shampoos and conditioners are best for your needs. If you have coloured hair or are thinking of colouring your hair it is important to remember that use of a professional salon brand of shampoo and conditioner is a necessity as high street brands can leave a build up on your hair effecting the results and staying power of your colour.

It is a myth that professional salon brand shampoos and conditioners are always more expensive than high street brands, as this if often not the case. Salon brands often come in larger sizes and are usually very concentrated, so you do not need to use as much of the shampoo and conditioner as you do with the high street brands. Salon brand shampoos and conditioners usually last much longer, are safer for your hair and have far superior results, plus you can get free advice from the salon and be sure that what you are using is correct for your hair and scalp needs.
