Hi, I have just stopped dyeing my hair after 16 years. I shaved down to a zero guard which I made a mistake doing. My hair is a lot whiter than I expected and with the scalp on my head being even whiter it just looks ridiculous. Can you offer any advice on what to do, in some light my hair seems to glow silver and looks fine in other light. I donít want to dye again but feel I might need to and wait until next summer before shaving my head and getting a bit of colour on the scalp ? Thanks in advance

Welcome to reality lol. Youíve been colouring your hair for a long period with out realising the hair has changed. Your hair is whiter Ė Some times this can make the hair look silver, which can be cool and also slightly more transparent Ė especially since youíre cutting your hair short. Choices are to enjoy your natural hair colour, and consider not cutting the hair so short. The hair will look thicker, or you colour your hair a more natural colour, shade, to soften the silver and or grey hair. Keep in mind your hair has changed, in density, texture and natural colour, as well as your skin colour etc., itís time for a change and to embrace a bit more of your natural.
I recommend you consult a professional colourist and hair stylist - so they can help formulate a plan to your new look.

Hello, PLEASE can you help me? Iím at my wits end with my hair. Iím 34 with very fine, thin light brown curly hair, but when I say curly, it constantly wants to just frizz up into one fuzzy mess and itís driving me crazy. The length is just below my shoulders if it behaves at all. I have tried all sorts. I usually wash with Redken Frizz dismiss Shampoo & Conditioner. How can I achieve CURLS, soft curls that look like curls and not just fuzz? Everyone who trims my hair canít believe how thin it is. I do straighten it a bit in summer but thatís not an option in autumn/winter...one drop of rain and it totally curls up again......What should I do?

Hi Bridget, The frizz, no matter how annoying, gives your hair volume. If you didnít have any frizz, your hair would be very flat. So the thing to do is to use the frizz to your advantage. You need to treat the curls in your hair. Take the focus away of trying to get rid of the frizz because you wonít. Start with Redken Curvaceous shampoo-towel dry your hair by squeezing it- not rubbing and apply Curvaceous leave in conditioner. Take sections about one inch square and twist each section around your finger. Once youíve done the whole head dry the hair gently with a diffuser. Do not pull your fingers through the curls. Once it is completely dry place your fingers next to your scalp and shake. This should give you a nice curl and volume. The more you do this the more you will train your hair to go into nice curls. Do visit a recommended hairdresser to ensure that the shape and length suit your face. Good luck!

Hi, Iím a hairdresser but Iím in need of some advice. My friend has been having a semi permanent colour on for years. Her natural colour is medium/auburn and is fairly long but quite fine. Sheís been having quite a dark brown on (itís almost black) and I always put the semi on all over when I do it, so I know thereís a lot of build up on there. Anyway, she wants to go a bit lighter and have an all over base colour of a warm chocolate brown , then have a few highlights of caramel running through it. I told her it would need a colour stripper on it first. I did a couple of test strands and the colour stripper (not a bleach based one) stripped the colour out lovely, but then when I put the chocolate colour on it went black. So I went back to the wholesalers and bought a colour that was 3 shades lighter, (majirel mocha blonde 7.8) and it still went black!! I really donít want to bleach it all over to strip it, any suggestions? TIA

Hi Dawn, You need to leave the colour stripper for a week or two before applying the tone you want or else it will go black. Your friend, could have her hair stripped, have the caramel lights and control the unwanted warmth with violet conditioner or use chocolate brown conditioner, combing through and leaving for 5 minutes before rinsing? Good luck
