|Lisa asks: |
I have dark hair and for years have had it highlighted to a blonde. Now I am getting a lot of grey; my hairdresser was colouring my roots (grey) with a colour close to my natural and then foiling in my blonde, which kind of seems silly to put colour in and then take it out. What is the best way for me to have my blonde while covering my grey? I donít like the whole head solid colour, it looks too fake. How would you approach this problem with one of your customers?

Hi Lisa, I would stop having the root colour, have lots more highlights in order to break up the tinted hair colour that you need to grow out and have a big haircut if you can brave it!
Then you will be well on your way to being totally natural, you can always have fine highlights in the winter months if you feel your hair looks dark. Good luck!

Please can you recommend products for hair with greasy roots and dry ends?
|Answered By: |
This is a very common hair complaint, particularly for women with finer hair. Avoid the temptation to reach for clarifying shampoos in a bid to strip your oily scalp, as these will only make your dry ends worse.
Start with a shampoo that addresses oily roots, removing excess sebum and purifying the scalp, while nourishing the lengths and ends. Kťrastase Specifique Bain Devalent £19.50 treats oily roots, but replaces lost moisture from any sensitised areas and drier ends, helping hair fibres to regain softness and shine. Only massage shampoo in to your roots, and let it cleanse the rest of the hair as you rinse the product out.
When it comes to conditioning, look for a fairly light conditioner, that wonít weigh down greasier roots and limp locks, but one that is still rich in moisturising ingredients. Kťrastase Soin Premier Therapiste £22.90 is a lightweight conditioner for damaged hair Ė so it repairs dry damaged ends, but without weighing down finer or oilier hair. This particular product can be used either before or after cleansing, so adapt its use according to your hairís needs each week.
The ends of your hair are the oldest part of the hair length, so have been exposed to far more damage. They need protection from further damage to avoid drying out further and this product actually acts like a gauze on the hair fibre, protecting it from further damage and really nourishing any dry ends.
If you want to invest in extra products, look out for a pre-shampoo mask, designed to absorb scalp oils using natural clays, which wonít strip your hair of moisture. You could also try adding a lightweight oil, such as Moroccanoil Treatment Light £13, 45, to your routine, using it on damp hair after washing and conditioning, but sticking to the ends and lengths and avoiding the root area.
|Amy asks: |
I have fine stick straight hair. At a very young age I started going grey (sometime around 14) now in my 30ís Iím not really concerned about showing my grey hair but everyone thinks I am much older than I am because of it (which actually does influence things when considered for employment) so I dye it. My main problem now is that my grey hair is coming in curly. Not kinky like some people but spiral curls and waves. Itís the top layer that is the curliest thus leaving me with a top layer of curly or frizzy hair. My hair leans toward the greasy side of things so heavy conditioners or straightening serums wonít work for me. How do I marry my two kinds of hair? Any advice?

Amy, I am thinking how about a chemical smoothing treatment on the halo section of your hair, you should only have to do it once per year and have total control of your flyways. Really good luck.
