Mina Winter asks:
Last week I went to the hairdressers and my hair was a medium brown colour with dark roots. I asked them if they could dye it grey, leaving my dark roots since this is quite trendy now. They assessed my hair in a consultation. They asked for £75, I agreed. I went and came out with 50 different colours in my hair but it was fine because they all looked grey. Then I washed my hair a few days later with regular shampoo and my hair was green and orange at the top. Went back and they said it was because I didnít use silver shampoo. I was sceptical of this because it was just after 1 wash and such a dramatic colour change. So they tried to fix it and made it even worse. Now there were 100 colours in my hair from dark brown to grey with green orange and yellow in. I got really upset because I even had a hair consultation and they told me they could get my hair like that. Then they asked me what dye I home coloured with before and I said Garnier Olia- apparently it created an oil barrier so they couldnít do anything. They then put a dark brown in my hair after all that damage. Came out fine but way darker than I would like. I was so angry and Iím never going back there. They didnít even give me a refund. My question is after this natural black colour if I use a normal shampoo or try to fade the colour what will happen?

Hey Mina.

Okay, so I can see the journey you have taken, and there are many reasons on why you have ended up with multi-tone hair, but lets stick with your main question. ...More >

Colour fade shampoos will help maintain the colour and slow down or prevent colour fade.

However as this is not what you want I would recommend a shampoo that is going to look after the condition of your hair. Redkenís Extreme would be a great choice , this is because your hair has been through a lot by de-colourizing (using bleach) to lift your hair.

As the fade will happen over time, I would not try to lift it with any chemical process at the moment, and if that is something you are looking into then you should see a stylist. Tell them exactly what you had on your hair pre your last experiences and then everything that has been applied during that experience.

They will do a strand test to see if it is possible, do not try any of this at home.

However I would recommend waiting a few weeks to see where the shade has lifted to, then naturally re-evaluate.

All the best,

Hi Brenda,

Good to hear from you. ...More >

You really need to visit a Trichologist as the change in your hair could be due to a number of factors including hormones, genetics, the products you are using or possibly a medical condition.

A full consultation with a trichologist will help to identify what is changing and how you can manage it moving forward. If you need to find a trichologist, I am happy to recommend someone in your area via the Institute of Trichologists.

Best wishes,

Hi there.

You didnít say if his hair was fine or thick or medium long , very long, so depending in that I have put a collage together for you with some options.
I have numbered the cuts so that you can tell the stylist what you want and have explained the terms used to help. ...More >

1&5 This is a very long surfer dude the layers are graduatedl ayers and it has no fringe , the base line sits on the shoulders and the stylist uses this as a guide the layers should fall as in the photo 5, so if this is the one then Thaiís what you ask for.

2, 3, 4, 6 The base line is just sitting on the collar and length at the ears is the bottom of the lobe. The layers are then cut within that perimeter.
The fringe should be cut below or above (depending on your preference) the eyebrow and then snipped into and cut slightly shorter on one side (at a slant) to give the illusion of a side parting if you are having a straight across fringe ask for it to be feathered.
is a close up of the fringe for number 2 on blonde hair (didnít know your sons colour)

is same as above but on thick hair

is very fine hair SAME STYLE
