Ana asks:
Hello, I have dark brown hair natural and dyed because of my grey. I wanted to get a nice dark grey look, so I bleached my hair and it got orange. I dyed it with Wella dark intense ash blonde and volume 30, and it still went orange. So when my roots grew a little, I tried re-dying again with same colour and added almost 4 capfuls of cooling violet 050. It still went orange. I now want to go back dark and I donít want to damage my hair any more, but I still want the ash tones. I was thinking to colour with volume 10 and mix the colours 1 part 5AA light brown intense ash and 1/2 a bottle of cooling violet. My question is, how light would the cooling violet make the colour and should I use dark ash brown instead to get the light, because I know the volume 10 will leave the hair colour dark. Any advice on how these colours would mix? And what would be the best way? Iíve added a picture for you to see my natural hair and the insert where my face is a model with the hair colour I want similar and darker is fine with me. Thank you for your help and time.

Best Regards,

Hi Anna

Your suggested formula of 10 vol with equal parts 5AA light brown intense ash will work, the addition of cooling violet with neutralize additional warmth but wonít alter the depth of the colour. I suggest apply to clean dry hair, if you donít have the cool look you require then use violet conditioner to rid of the unwanted tones and maintain the desired cool result.

I previously had light grey/blue ish hair but had to dye back brown to give my hair a break but now the brown is far to dark. What can I do to lighten it?

Hi Grace

I think the best think to do is use deep cleansing shampoo leave it on for 15 mins rinse and repeat. This will remove the residue and it will immediately look lighter. The other options are to have the colour stripped out a shade or 2 or have some fine highlights to give an overall lighter look? ...More >

Good luck

Pamela walters asks:
Could you please help. I have very fine baby hair. After I have washed and dried my hair, itís ok for about 5 minutes and then it looks like candy floss. Itís driving me mad, I have tried so many hair products but has not made any difference. Itís quite upsetting as my hair looks so untidy all the while. Can you suggest anything?

Hi Pamela

Shampoo and your drying technique are the most important things to focus on. ...More >

So make sure you are using the best professional protein shampoo for fine hair as well as a spray on leave in conditioner. Then apply a small amount of blowdry volumisng lotion as well as a tiny drop of your favourite oil or serum comb the product through before you start to dry your hair. Section your hair starting at the nape and use your dryer on medium heat and medium speed. Dry each section and let the hair cool down before finishing styling.

If your hair dries naturally whilst your drying the sections, damp it again with the leave in conditioner. itís important to know that the shape you create between your hair being wet and dry is more likely to last. Heat creates shape cool fixes it.

Good luck I really hope this helps x
