Sarah asks:
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?

Hi Sarah

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?

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.

Mary Ellen Lounsbery asks:
I have medium length hair, the under layers are curly but from about the top of my ears on up is board straight. Iíd like to go curly part of the time but that top layer covers the curls. Any suggestions?

Mary Ellen, there are products called curl revitalisers they are quite often very good, I believe the key ingredient is magnesium. When your hair is wet twist small individual sections of the straight hair before using a diffuser to dryer in on a medium heat slow speed. If your going to use a curl product like I suggested make sure you comb it through so that it is evenly distributed before styling. ...More >

Other wise use a little wand to great to curls on the top sections.

Good luck
