Netts asks:
I am a women aged 65 years and I am 2 x breast cancer survivor who finished chemotherapy in May of 2017. My hair is coming back but is very thin an I have a large opening down the the back of my head where no hair has grown back. Is there something i can do to get my hair to grow back? Please need help

Hi Netts, Congratulation on being a twice cancer survivor! As far as your hair coming back I suggest you use a shampoo and conditioner full of protein for fine fragile hair, I recommend Nioxin. They also have a treatment for the scalp which I strongly recommend too. If you can take a specific hair supplement there are lots to choose from and have as balanced diet as possible. I canít promise this will make hair grow, but it will give it the best chance but also make the quality of the hair growing as strong as possible. Really good luck and lots of love x





Ceri asks:
Iím going to a festival this year and really want to dye my hair for it but I have a kind of unique natural hair colour and Iíve always been told not to dye it because it will ruin the colour. My hair is strawberry blonde naturally with 5 different natural shades (or "highlights") in it too. I was hoping to use a temporary dye but I wasnít sure if that would still be damaging for it. Will temporary dye damage my natural hair colour? Or will it be fine for just one weekend? Thank you, Ceri

Hi Ceri, If you use what is known as a semi permanent colour (something mixed with a low level, that gradually shampoos out) or a direct dye colour (something that doesnít get mixed but is more fashion colour and washes our more quickly) then you will not spoil your beautiful natural colour. Warm colors will work better on your hair and remember that the above colour can only add shade or make hair temporarily darker. Once you want to get rid of the colour you can always use high detergent shampoo or washing up liquid to remove the remainder, leave it on for 5 mins before rinsing and repeat is necessary. Enjoy the festival!







Valerie asks:
Hi, I have been dying my darkish brown hair at home using Koleston 8/00 light natural blonde (permanent) with 40% vol peroxide. I have a lot of grey at the roots, but managing to cover these following advice you gave to somebody on here about increasing the ratio to 1 : 1 and leaving on longer.
My question is how can I brighten up my hair, without it becoming too yellow. I regularly use a blue shampoo and professional colour care products; the overall condition of my hair is good. Ideally I would like to go blonder, but not sure what shade of colour to buy. Can you help asap as Iím hoping to do this at the weekend. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.

Hi Valerie, I am so sorry I didnít get to your question sooner, I went away for a much needed break! I was thrilled to hear that some advice previously offered was useful to you. To get you to a lighter shade I suggest using a clarifying or high detergent shampoo, leave it on your hair for 5 minutes before rinsing and repeating. Then investing in some blonding shampoo and conditioner, but using that at this time of year will mean you can actually lift up to 2 shades. The formula for your roots will then be a 9.00 or 10.00 with 40 vol use the 1:1 ratio and keep to the increased processing time. If you want to counteract a bit of the excess warmth use an ash shade as part of the formula I would go with 9.00 with 10.01 that way you are neutralising the warm tones and getting lighter. If you donít get the lift (Iím sure you will) from deep cleansing and the blonde shampoo and conditioner how about some very fine highlights? Really good luck x
