Hi, I am 45, would say a natural level 5.5/6 mousey brown with a lot of warmth. I have been having a level 6 and 7 mixed on my roots stretched with high lift tint foils ....lately it’s started to look awful my greys come through after 3 weeks and the brown looks slightly gingery in the light, the blonde looks dirty and I am at my wits end about where to go from here with it. Thought about just foils but am told by my hairdresser that tint won’t lift tint........pls help. I need to know what to recommend to her that I do. Would be happy with an all over same colour .... ? Many many thanks. Kate. Forgot to mention with the high lift tint she adds a touch of bleach.

Hi Kate, I am guessing that you have more grey now than when you started the process you have written about, so what used to work well isn’t so good now. You need to go lighter in order to blend the grey/white hair and make the re growth less noticeable. Your hairdresser is correct tint won’t lift tint so I suggest you have a full head of fine bleach highlights this will lift out the 6/7 ask the hairdresser not to take it through the already lightened ends though. Then either just have a semi of perhaps a natural 8 all over to tone and blend and use a blonde shampoo and conditioner (violet or silver if it gets to warm looking) or have an 8 ash mixed 8 natural on the roots so you are gradually getting lighter, working with your skin tone and helping the grey to look less obvious? Good luck

I currently have green/brown hair and I want to go back to my natural hair colour, dirty blonde. I am just unsure of what I should do to my hair in order to have dirty blonde hair.

Hi Allisa, I suggest you have some blonde baby lights (lots of very fine highlights) and then use a blonde shampoo and conditioner until you have the colour you want. The Blonde shampoo will slightly lift out the green/brown and the conditioner will tone, so the overall effect will be a dirty blonde. Hope this helps
|Ana asks: |
Hello, I have an ombré in my hair. My hair goes from a light/medium brown, into a red colour and then blonde and I wanted to darken the blonde part. I got a demi permanent dye and used a 10 developer but I didn’t realize the dye was blue based, so it left the blonde part of my hair with a green tint. I was told the only way to fix it was to go get it professionally done but I don’t have the money to do so right now. Someone else told me I just need to get a gold or red toned dye and I’ll be fine. I stumbled across red protein filler (which I should’ve used to begin with) and was wondering, should I get the red protein filler and use another blue based dye on it to get rid of the green in the blonde, but also to tone down the red at bottom and middle of my hair or should I just get the gold based dye? My concern with getting a gold based dye is that it will worsen the green since my hair is missing red. Thank you!

Hi, So if you wish to make the blonde area darker and lose the green tinge you do need to use a warm tone, the tone will be determined by how dark you want to be – Red filler/ tone is for a level 5 and below – orange(gold is for level 6 and above. So if the end goal is light – medium brown use a warm light golden brown with 10 vol developer – the warm under tone will neutralize the green and make sure the hair doesn’t go to dark. Hope that helps
