I have very thick, natural, African-american hair which I have dyed in the past (dark colors like black, brown, copper, etc). I want to achieve a smoky bluish-green color (photo link below) with out doing significant damage to my hair. I have no idea what color to even use or how I would do it. Iíd prefer to do it at home, only going to a salon if necessary. Do you have any tips or advice on what color to buy and how I would achieve the look I want?

To achieve such a cool colour on hair that is not only naturally coarse but also previously treated with chemicals and still maintain condition is a very big ask. I would advise against attempting a home care product to achieve this result. Consult a professional colour specialist and have the appropriate tenacity tests to see if you hair can handle this service and then have it done in salon. My initial feeling is that you wonít be able to achieve this until your hair is in better condition. I would recommend exploring other options till your hair is in better condition or has less chemical history on it.

i really need your help! a few months back i bleached my hair too much, big mistake of course, my hair started stretching and breaking, i started using coco nut oil and using protein shampoos and conditioners on my hair, but now my hair is still breaking and falling out, iím really worried that iím going to end up with no hair!

Using products packed with protein is the first thing that springs to mind - however in this case you may have overdone the protein on top of severely damaged hair - making the hair even more brittle. Because of the intensity of protein on the hair it isnít recommended for long-term use and should be reviewed at this point. I would thoroughly recommend using Kerastase Nutritive range, which is intensely moisturising without protein. I Would definitely recommend a cut as well, split ends can worsen over time if they are left. The more you can have cut, the better. ...More >
After 6 weeks move back onto a repair programme: Use the Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte (shampoo) and Ciment Anti-Usure (conditioner) for every wash, and the Electric Intensive Treatment Masque every 7 days. If you blowdry or use other heated styling tools I would highly recommend the use of Kerastase Resistance Ciment Thermique. If you do not use heated styling tools, the Elixir Ultime moringa immortel (Green) would be the recommended product, it is designed to condition damaged hair and can be used on wet or dry.
Give this programme 12 weeks and with regular trims your hair will be tip top in no time!

I have incredibly thick straight grey hair that no stylist seems to have a solution for .Over the years I have had it layered, textured etc as there instinct is always to remove the "bulk" but all this does is make it stick out further .Its much better when I let its own weight pull it down but because of having to have the roots permanently coloured every three weeks I end up with banding and the sheer volume makes colouring such a chore for them. As I approach my fifties Iím becoming increasingly desperate to find a style that will work for me .Iím very tall, well built with very wide shoulders and with an oval face .My hair looks best when up or swept away from my face at least on one side. By using products I can keep it fairly shiny and sleek but what is the right thing to advise my stylist because it seems every "chip in" just creates frizzy hair that sticks out even more and itís so strong that no style lasts for long without a ton of product. It goes its own way hours after every salon visit!

I would strongly recommend that you look into having the Keratin Complex treatment done. What this does is add keratin back into the hair which helps people like yourself with very thick coarse hair be able to manage the style better. It is important to point out that it is NOT a chemical straightening process, but it will help reduce blow drying time and difficulties dramatically.
