I’ve 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.

I am 23 and have very thick wavy hair, which is also frizzy. I really want to get a short cut a bit like Frankie from the Saturdays
but am worried that it will be really puffy or it won’t straighten as well. I have it just above my shoulders at the moment and it styles fine but I want something that is easier and quicker to style. Do you think the short style would be suitable?

Often, if you have hair that is prone to frizz and fly-aways- going for a really short cut isn’t a great idea- simply because the weight in the cut, which keeps the hair from frizzing outwards and upwards, is removed. If your hair is already shoulder length I would suggest sticking with a mid-length cut with shorter layers. This will take some of the bulk out of your hair, making you cut look sleeker and lighter, but maintaining enough length to keep the frizz level under control.
Why not also try my brand new Climate Control range. Especially at this time of year, the weather can wreak havoc on short hair. The Lee Stafford Climate Control Protection Spray is designed with innovative “liquid umbrella technology” to help ward of the damaging effects of the winter climate so that your hair can remain its frizz-free silky-smooth self come rain, come shine. Simply smooth a small amount of the serum through wet hair and then again after blow-drying.

I have one question for you. I have been using Wellastarte to straighten and calm the curl in my hair but I am afraid if I use it too often I will be bald or experience hair loss. At the moment I use it every 3 weeks, is that ok? Thank you in advance
|Answered By: |
My advice is that I certainly wouldn’t use any more often than that.
Really you should be using it between 4-6 weeks, but if your hair is thick and strong and providing you keep your hair well conditioned you should be fine.
