Katie asks:
I had a perm stating that I wanted body and a little curl. I informed the Salon that I had a perm 8-9 months ago, and that my curled easy and that it was coloured treated. Well, for the first time in my life my hair is straight and damaged. The perm was Redken. What happened?

I would recommend going back to the salon that provided the service for you and making them aware of the problem.

It could be down to several issues ...More >

•Development time not long enough or incorrect allocation of development time and incorrect neutralization process.

•Because your hair is colour treated then the perming solution used may not have been the correct one for your hair? And may not have had the full development time required to give the desired result.

Either way your best option is to go back to where you had your perming service done and show them your hair and explain your feelings over the result and your hair condition.

Avril asks:
I have purchased majimeches tubes and sachets as I just cannot get an appointment with my hairdresser very frustratingly before going on holiday. My mother used to hairdresser and sometimes does my hair. So I decided to buy majimeches which she has never used but I know my hairdresser uses on me. My problem is I can not read the instructions as they are not in English. Would you be able to tell me how to use them? I have very dark hair naturally and my hairdresser normally sends it a warmish blonde rather than platinum

Majimeche is a simple system to use.

Yet it also needs a full understanding of the results achievable. You mention that you have dark brown hair which can be anything from a base shade 2 - 4 depending on what tone your hair actually is. ...More >

I know it may be frustrating not been able to get into see your stylist but I would recommend that this would be by far the safest option for you as the colour achieved is totally dependant on what base shade you have to work off.

The majimech colour states that it lifts within fifteen minutes yet this is fifteen minutes from being in contact with the hair to be coloured. If you start at the back of the head and work your way up by the time the top is completed the underneath sections could have been on your hair for 30-40 minutes depending on the time in applying the colour, which would result in a lighter tone on the underneath compared to the last sections completed on the top sections of your hair.

Due to the above I would highly recommend you visit your hairdresser to ensure you get exactly what you want.

Kate asks:
I have got very long thick naturally brown hair. I want to lighten it in the sun on my next holiday, I have been told that vinegar will lighten brown hair in the sun as opposed to lemon in blonde hair. Is that true or is my work mate having a laugh?

I think they might be pulling your leg, and if this was a well known fact that worked, I think a lot of people would be using it instead of purchasing professional hair colour kits from the shop or having their hair coloured properly by a hairdresser. I think that if you want to be sure of a certain look and keep your hair in good condition, then a visit to the hairdressers might work better.
