Louise asks:
I am a hairdresser but have been working very little to look after my children. I have been highlighting a friendís hair with bleach which is fine. She has lots and very light but she now would like a few copper ones too. I am not totally sure what I should use as I know that bleached hair picks up colour.

The simple answer is if there are strands of hair within the hairstyle that are still natural try concentrating on selecting these as your target and your colour result would be great. ...More >

Yet if your friends highlights are almost a full head colour it is trickier.

Any colour you apply would be lighter/brighter due to the underlying tone.

I would recommend adding some natural base to you chosen colour to help prevent the brightening effect/ or you could pre-pigment the strands selected for highlighting, before going over with your selected shade. This will add pigment into the highlighted hair to prevent colour bounce or over brightness.

Jade asks:
I have been going to the hairdressers to get my hair dyed Black for the past year now but I've only began to notice my roots don't seem to take, they will dye but not Black. It's as if my natural colour is still in there underneath and you can definitely see it in certain lights. I'm just curious as to why this is happening now when my roots used to dye Black fine before?

Firstly make sure that the shampoo you are using is not one with silicon in as this can affect your colour result.

If your natural tone sees to be shining through then I would recommend going back to your salon and explaining the situation to them. It may be that another colour pigment needs adding to your black permanent colour. This should help stop your natural tone shining through.

Girl asks:
I have long but thin hair, at home I usually tie my hair up with a fine and soft rubber band and then make a plait and pin it up in the form of a braid. I want to know whether this is harmful or correct.

I would say as your hair is fine that using a soft rubber band will still eventually cause split ends. Make sure that you use a good protective leave in conditioner to give your hair added strength.
