Sandra asks:
I am 43 and have really gray hair. I have had it coloured by a hairdresser for the last six years back to my natural dark brown colour. My hairdresser uses Redken hair products. Six weeks ago, about 6 hours after the colour my head was burning, this resulted in some hair loss and a rash covering my whole body. This has cleared up but after several skin tests I react. I am now going really grey! Please help?

Sorry to hear of your problem. This is a tricky one, you are obviously allergic to one of the main ingredients in a full colour. This can be quite dangerous if your allergy is extreme. First of all - Do not attempt to use any colouring product yourself from the major chemist chains or shops - most of them will contain the ingredient you are allergic to. I suggest you have many skin tests with other manufacturerís colours such as Goldwell Top Chic and Colourance - Wella Koleston or Colour Touch or Schwarzkopf or Aveda colour. ...More >

Redken is an American product and are usually very strong in chemicals. The ones I have suggested are European and far more gentle on the hair and scalp. If this fails - you only have one other choice - Vegetable Colours such as Henna. Henna does come in several shades and works well on most grey hair.

On another note your allergy may well disappear in the same way it suddenly started.

Marcia asks:
Hello , I really need youíre help.My Hair is really dry and full of flyaways ,itís a nightmare! I donít know what to do anymore. I donít use heat on my hair at all , Iíve never dyed my hair or anything. In my entire life I only straightened my hair like 4 times. I wash my hair once a week which is the ideal as itís not stripping away the natural oils I believe. I donít know what to do , Itís taking my confidence away. I would love to have that shiny looking hair but my hair is always dry no matter what. It looks like its damaged and I just feel like to cut it all off sometimes. Its horrible , please help me ! thank you

This could be down to the shampoo and conditioner you use, if it is too heavy try changing to a cleansing shampoo. If you ever do dry your hair with heat be sure to apply heat protector and speak to your colourist to have a clear gloss added to your hair. This doesnít alter the colour but adds great shine to it which should help your confidence.

Claire asks:
I am 40 years old and at a loss as to what to do with my hair. For a while now I have been growing it so the back reaches the centre of my back but it always looks so lifeless and shapeless. I have layers through the top section and I have been colouring it myself with the L'Oreal Excellence brown mahogany shade. Pleas don't tell me to visit my salon colourist because I simply do not have the time or money for the upkeep of salon colouring! I have been toying with the idea of having 2-21/2 inches lopped off the back so that I may be able to go for a more bobbed effect but it has taken me so long to get it to this length that I am really reluctant to go for it even though I go for regular "just the ends off please" trims. I just don't know what to do to recapture its shine and style that I would have thought nothing of changing perhaps 15-20 years ago. Any ideas?

You are in the best years of your life but all of us in our 40's want to look younger- and so we should. You are obviously not happy with you hair cut so itís important to search high and low for a style you really dream of. When you find that look then go for it without hesitation. You hair seems to be over layered and limp at the ends, so I definitely think you need to lose some length. Go for a sophisticated sexy cut and then continue colouring yourself.
