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.

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.
