My hair is straightened with Keratin, and a few days ago my hairdresser bleached my hair blonde and the result is devastating. My hair has gone thin and the ends look like they have been burnt, and it feels like plastic. I have complained and the hairdresser has offered to cut the ends and use an intensive Olaplex treatment. Will this help? Do you have any other advice on how I can get my hair back to normal?
|Answered By: |
I can imagine the result is devastating! Bleach (pre-lightener) can cause so much damage to chemically treated hair as you should never mix chemicals on your hair. You will need to get the ends cut off, as the damage canít be repaired. You should also take the offer of Olaplex, however you will need a course of treatment, not just one, for it to be successful. You will then need to continue the restructure at home with Phase 3. Treat your hair with moisturising products, too.

My natural colour is dark blonde/light brown, for the past 20 years I have been having it highlighted with bleach and a high-lift tint. I recently decided to go for a darker brown/mahogany red colour, which I got professionally done. When it was first done, I loved it, but over the past 5 weeks it has faded to a shade only a little darker than my natural colour. Instead of going back to my hairdresser and paying another £120, which I canít afford, I want to try an at home colour. Is this safe and also, how long do I have to wait before I can do this?
|Answered By: |
Yes you can do this at home with a box colour. However it is a jungle out there as to which one you choose. ...More >
It is very hard for me to say without seeing your hair, your best bet is to go back to your hairdresser and tell her it has faded and ask what you can do to prolong the life of your colour, as it could be as simple as the right shampoo and conditioner. I would recommend REDKEN Colour Extend for the next time you have it coloured.
You could also express that you expected it to last longer than 5 weeks your stylist will then explain what product she has used (permanent , semi permanent).
The danger with box colours is you never know how they are going to turn out they could be too red, to dark all sorts can go wrong with them and then you find that you are paying more money to get it right.
|Paula asks: |
Can highlights disguise grey roots? Which product would you recommend that I use? My hairdresser used LíOreal Majimeche with excellent results the first time, but the next appointment that I booked for a refresh seemed to have no impact at all on the grey growth. Please can you help?
|Answered By: |
Highlights can disguise grey roots, but will not cover them 100%. I would recommend using a pre-lightener and a natural lowlight to blend in the colour with your hair on the ends. To answer your question about your second visit, you may not have seen such a big impact if your regrowth wasnít as obvious as it was on your first visit.
