I have long blonde highlighted hair which is very fine and flyaway. It is very fluffy when I wake up in the morning and so I always have to wash it. What products are best to use as I never know whether to use shampoos and conditioners designed for coloured hair or for fine hair. Also, what styling tools/products would you suggest?

It sounds to me like you are suffering from damaged hair - as Iím sure you know highlighting hair, especially with bleach is incredibly damaging and combined with your fine hair you need some tlc!
Limit the number of times you shampoo your hair per week. If you can stretch the amount of time in-between shampoos this gives hair time to rest and for the natural hair oils to accumulate. Use a moisturizing shampoo such as my Bleach Blonde Shampoo which helps repair bleached hair and gently tone any yellow to a gorgeous ashy baby blonde. Wash hair ONLY in lukewarm water. Hot water will dry out the cuticle and enhance any existing damage. Rinse hair many times until all shampoo has been completely removed. Always rinse with cool to cold water. This seals newly added moisture back into the cuticle. Avoid using hot styling tools which will exacerbate the dryness of any chemically damaged hair. Allow hair to air dry. To add curls or waves use, pin curls, rag or soft sponge rollers. Avoid heat styling. Take hair vitamins designed to strengthen hair. These will help the hair to repair itself from the root area as the strands grow. Use only a smooth, wide toothed combs and brush damaged hair only as needed. Never brush spongy or damaged hair when wet. If the damage does not improve after a few weeks, visit a hair care professional for salon conditioning treatments. Have damaged ends removed. Avoid applying any additional chemicals to severely damaged hair. Drink lots of water, get plenty of rest and treat your hair with TLC

Congrats on getting married. Ok, a few ideas...
If you are fair haired you could go a bit darker to give the illusion your hair is thicker. Getting some movement and texture in the hair is helpful. Be careful that your veil and tiara arenít too heavy. ...More >
Have a few trials to make sure you feel confident with your hairdresser and take pictures. If it is loosely put up then the hair piece can be introduced into the top and blended in.

Iíve had blonde hi lites in my hair for a year full head tint 2 years previous to that. My problem is, after returning from Cancun in September my hair was completely white, which was fine except that my roots looked terrible, like black and white hair and because it had been hi lites was really dark underneath at the back as well. I asked my stylist if tint would be a better option and less damage and maintenance than constantly having to cover up what looked like black roots (I was a natural blonde but have got a lot darker over the years and probably very dark blonde or light brown now). The procedure was a disaster, the tint went orange and she put a toner on it but then this made the hi lites ash/grey. After 3 hours I had to leave as it was 8pm at night. Came home and my hair was yellow/orange on top and silvery/grey the rest. Went back to see her after the weekend and she said she would put a toner on the hi lites which should take the ash tone away and all she could do was put a brown tint on the top to mask the yellow/orange. I am totally distraught, look like an old woman and only 30. My hair has gone mousey brown but the hi lites still look grey. It has been 3 weeks and has faded a lot,(been shampooing with a tone correct and reconstructor conditioner. The hi lites look caramel at the top which is ok but the rest is this horrible brown/grey shade and breaking when I dry it. I will go to a professional salon but worried about anyone touching it but cannot bear to look like this anymore. In your professional opinion, can I go blonde at this stage without anymore bleach in my hair. My boyfriend is ready for dumping me as he says I look like my mother! Help!

OMG!!! you have been put through the ringer girl!!!
First things first, THIS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED if you went to a professional but we are where we are. Or should I say you are. ...More >
Without actually seeing your hair first hand I cannot say with any clarity, yet what I can state is that you should have a strand test taken. This way a sample of your hair is taken and coloured from roots to end. When developed you see the result that you would be paying for.
To stop your boyfriend dumping you and running off with your mum, only kidding, visit a good experienced salon and have a consultation, get good advice, ask about a strand test so you could see the colour result prior to going ahead. This way you will keep in on your head and not on the floor as it beaks off from over processing.
