Cece Harris asks:
I am in my early 50ís (female) with blonde and grey hair. I swim almost daily in an outdoor saltwater pool and have been doing this since April. I have very fine, limp hair and it has thinned some as I have gotten older. My hair is .

I keep my hair cut short.

I shampoo every time I swim. I am conditioning more since my hair has become more dry. Before I swam so often, if I used conditioner, it would weigh my hair down.

Can you recommend a certain shampoo / conditioner / treatment that I can get in the USA?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Ce ce

Well done you sounds amazing swimming in salt water everyday! ...More >

A clarifying shampoo is best as that removes all the salt and mineral deposit build up in the hair, regular shampoo is not able to do thatís why it feels dry. I suggest a spray leave in protein (clear in colour not opaque) conditioner as they are practically weightless but do close the cuticle, protect and moisturize. Most brands available now on the high-street are great it is a little trial and error., but professional salon brands are always my first recommendation.

Take care

Catherine asks:
I had a new tattoo done just over 24 hours ago an planned to go have my hair roots dyed an a ombre mix on my hair ,I have been dying my hair in a salon same place for 5-6 years people are advising me to wait till tattoo has healed before I go ahead with hair dye is this correct advice ?

Catherine, I have to say I have never heard this before and have no idea why its being suggested. I am assuming the tattoo isnít on your head, as of course you would have to wait. I assume its perhaps to do with allergic reactions as you have had dye in your tattoo but after 48hrs and no reaction you should be fine. Iím not an expert in this field I am sorry, hope you get sorted.

Samantha Carter asks:
I have long brown hair, and I have been colouring my own roots at home for many years now, every 7 weeks, as I have a lot of grey. I always target the roots only, avoiding the lengths, using a brush and bowl. I am due to have an ombre effect done next month at a hairdressers, just on the mid-length to ends, which I have wanted to do for many years. When I come to touch up my roots again, how do I stop the colour touching the ombre, is there something I can put on it to protect it from picking up the other colour and ruining the effect?

Hi Samantha

As long as you only apply carefully to the roots as you have been doing you will be fine. When you shampoo the root colour out it will go over the ombre effect but any residue will shampoo away immediately. Good luck and I hope you love it.
