Gabrielle asks:
I have shoulder length dark chestnut brown hair which is in good condition. I've had a semi-perm gel colour put on by a fab hairdresser which was great and made my hair really shine, whilst covering a smattering of grey. I cannot afford to keep this up and would like to be able to use a similar product at home. Do you know of any good products that have little or no ammonia or peroxide in them? In the past I've tended to allow any colour to grow completely out before colouring again, but now that I have more grey coming through, this is no longer an option, which is why I want to use the gentlest product I can find.

I would never recommend home colouring and would strongly suggest visiting a professional technician at a salon. For a cost effective alternative, book in for a model night evening to get your hair coloured at a cheaper price. At hob salons we hold model nights on a weekly basis, offering our clients highly reduced prices as our training staff do their hair, guided by a senior member of staff. This will allow you to have professional colour used on your hair but without the higher price tag.

Lizzie asks:
I am 49 years old with an oval face and curly hair. My hair is coloured with mid brown highlights, but I would not mind going to a more natural grey colour. My problem is I always seem to end up looking like I have had an old fashioned shampoo and set. Any advice on styles and colour please.

I love curly hair and even when it is naturally grey it can still look stunning. I agree that many people with curly hair do tend to look like they have an old fashioned shampoo and set or a round shape due to the solid rounded layers they have cut in.

This is very UNFLATTERING and my advice would always be to have a weave cut or texture introduced internally into your shape to stop this happening. In simple terms it opens up spaces within your hair cut to allow your natural curl to move and have freedom. This will definitely stop your previous set look happening and will make your hair easier to style and far more fashionable as this allows you to have control over your hair rather than vice versa.

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.
