Angelina asks:
Hi, I have baby fine medium brown hair, which I dye my hair since I started getting a few grey hairs. I used to perm but it is too hard on my hair. Iím trying to get help. My hair is medium length, the back is shoulder length and the front is chin length, with bangs and lots of layers, which I have to try and create volume. I have a centre part, but my hair is starting to thin in the middle. I use root lifting and voluminous products from Sally Beauty Supplies. Iím not sure what medium length hair cut would be good for fine hair. I have a heart shaped face and I want to keep my bangs and wondered what style would suit me? Appreciate any help, Thanks you!

Hello Angelina, I think firstly it is important that you use a volumising shampoo and perhaps a dry shampoo at the root area. This will really help you achieve more body and volume overall. As far as your hair style is concerned I would say for you to try and wear the parting slightly off centre, carry on using a lightweight gel or lotion as a blowdry volumising product. I would wear your fringe (bangs) swept slightly to the side that way it compliments the off centre parting as well as frames your face. As far as layers are concerned I always say less is better. Some light layering around the face as the hair is generally more fragile but otherwise you want to have as much hair as possible. Keep the hair blunt cut on the bottom and have some very fine blonde babylights to disguise the fine grey hairs and also add dimension to your hair. Try using dry shampoo in the root area even on clean dry hair as well as using your salt spray for creating texture on days you want to wash and leave. Have you ever tried using a diffuser to create body and volume when drying your hair? Good luck





michelle asks:
Hi, I had my hair professionally dyed purple with light brown íunderneathí the colour (my natural hair colour is a light brown) at a hairdressers a good 6 months ago. Iíve since re-dyed it myself with semi permanent box dye (cyber purple Schwarzkopf) and it has turned out fine. Itís been a few months since Iíve dyed it so the colourís started to lighten naturally. However, Iím now looking to go even brighter but I can not afford to go to the hairdressers and pay for them to lighten it, nor do I want to risk bleaching it and it turning green or getting insanely damaged because Iím going away in 2 days. Is it possible to just buy a brighter purple dye and dye over it?

Hello Michelle, Iím afraid you canít make artificial colour lighter so you will have to lighten the hair as much as possible! I suggest you either use a very high detergent shampoo and leave it on for 5 minutes rinse and repeat and then apply the brightest purple you can buy. As the colour you previously had will fade all the time and the detergent will remove some colour you will eventually have a lighter base therefore a brighter purple. You could also try a colour remover from the high street but wait a day or 2 before applying the purple. Alternatively have a bleach bath at a salon then do the purple yourself. Good luck







Brittney asks:
Why wonít pastels (fashion colours) take in my hair? I am currently a level 9 bleached blonde. I have tried semi-permanent and demi-permanent professional colour and nothing seems to hold to my hair. I want to go either a pastel peach or a light lavender, but Iím not sure what product and ratio to use because nothing had worked thus far.

Hi Brittney, Sometimes a build up of styling products, minerals and old colour can prevent colour from taking properly and lasting. I suggest you use a deep cleanse shampoo, leave on for 5 minutes, rinse and repeat. Apply the colour of choice to clean dry hair and make sure its thoroughly saturated. Process for 10 minutes longer than suggested. Rinse and shampoo with a colour safe shampoo and you should be fine. Make sure moving forward you always use colour safe shampoo and try a colour conditioner as that will help maintain the colour. Good luck
