BeBe asks:
I have dark brown hair and I want to lighten it to a honey blonde, but I am afraid that it would take my hair out!

It should be fine as long as your hair is healthy. Tread with caution, go see a good colour technician do not attempt this by yourself.

Tonia asks:
I have just below shoulder length hair and it is very fine and quite thin especially in the bang area of late. What would be a good hairstyle for me without too much fuss as I do not like to spend too much time on it. I am 43 years old and have been told I look like I am 30 but I do not want anything too young looking as I am also a Grandma.

I think a jaw length square bob shape with a deep fringe will suit you, but your hairdresser will look at your face shape and advise. If you have a bob ask your hairdresser to round the corners off your bob shape to help make it fuller as graduating might take too much weight out of it. Blow dry with creating volume with a round bristle brush the thermo ones are good as they also speed up the blow-drying process. Colour can also help if you go for deeper roots with lighter tones on the mid-lengths and ends.

Erika asks:
I have used Henna about a month ago in the hope to give some Volume to my fine and straight hair. Now I would like to have a perm done, but I heard that after Henna treatment a perm will not work. How long do I have to wait before having a perm done. The hairdresser I asked did not know the answer.

Some henna contain metallic salts and react badly to many other chemicals when they come in contact with it, causing hair breakage and green khaki tones in the hair, sometimes causing the hair to burn the scalp and disintegrate, or go really frizzy. Your hairdresser needs to take a cutting of your hair and test it to see if it is incompatible with the perm solution. If it is then you will have to grow out the henna completely before you can have a perm. As it would be extremely unprofessional to even think about perming your own hair. If however the henna you have used does not contain metallic salts and is not incompatible then, another strand test should be taken to make sure that the hair will form into a curl formation, as some hennas create a barrier to the chemical change of the hair, and you would sit there for hours have rollers put in and come out with straight hair! So its all about having your hair tested and then takes it from there. Its probably going to be a No you can not have a perm and stop putting henna on your hair at home, as it prevents you being able to change your look.
