|Gillian asks: |
I have my hair coloured and it grows out grey from the roots. For the past couple of months it has been fading quickly and the colour comes of the grey roots almost instantly. I have a back problem and bone loss and have osteoporosis. I am on a lot of medication but have been for a number of years. The only new medication is the tablet once a week for osteoporosis. Is there anyway to preserve the colour?

Obviously you have had colour before that lasted and your are using the same product of color now, so it sounds like the medication is what is affecting your colour. If it is a dark permanent colour there is no reason for the color to fade off at all. You would or should just get a re-growth and usually a full head color needs a re-touch every 4 weeks as the hair grows approximately 1/2 -inch per month. Sometimes lighter blonde shades can fade off quicker due to the fact the dye load is not as heavy as the darker shades and of course if it is a demi-permanent that also will be a reason for the colour dark or light to fade. Unfortunately usually colour problems or unusual situations are due to something being on the hair, like a medication, or mineral from pipes etc. I would suggest that before you do your colour, to use a chelating shampoo to help take some of the medication away from your hair, apply the color to dry hair. After use a cuticle sealer and do not wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours immediately after the colour, these products mentioned can be found in the JOICO line, not sure this is the answer but it might help?

I have a short layered style like Kate Silverton, what product do I use to 'flick out' the sides?
|Answered By: |
If you have a short, layered style, it is important to use the correct products to get the most from it. Wash your hair with my Poker Straight Shampoo with P2Fifty, £4.49 for 250ml, which will tame kinks into submission making sure that you keep heat styling for your short hair to a minimum. Condition with Poker Straight Conditioner with P2Fifty, £4.49 for 250ml which will leave your locks straight and soft with a gorgeous glossy finish. Apply a small amount of Poker Straight Glistening Balm, £4.99 for 75ml to damp hair and blow dry, this will keep any fly-away hair under control making sure that your style stays put all day! Pump a small amount of Messed Up Wonder Webb, £5.49 for 50ml, into the palms of your hands and rub together. Pull hands apart and clap to create the webbing effect. Although this product looks strange in your hands it looks hot in your hair! Work vigorously through the whole of the hair and then use your fingers to separate the layers and flick out the sides. Your locks will be held in place all day and will not only look good, but feel great too with no stickiness at whatsoever!
|Hayley asks: |
I havenít had my hair cut in a long while and now and itís coming up to my 18th birthday. Iím going to have my hair done and I keep leaning toward a inverted bob, but Iím unsure as I have really long hair at the moment and donít know whether I want to cut it off. I have nice cheek bones and good bone structure; do you think I should go for it?
|Answered By: |
If you have had long hair for a long time now, cutting it into a sleek bob will be a refreshing change and a dramatic way to turn 18!
Shorter hair can often look more sophisticated and can be easier to look after than long locks. ...More >
With the correct styling, the inverted bob works well on almost anyone, although itís best if your hair isnít too curly as this look works best as a smooth, sleek style. Itís great for framing good bone structure too so will be ideal for you!
At the hairdressers, ask for long, graduated layers to the nape of the neck, ensuring that the base line is shattered. Finish with face framing longer sections at the front.
