I definitely wouldnít use bleach as it will leave your hair porous and damaged. If the colour is semi-permanent then Iíd suggest waiting for it to fade until it turns to a lighter colour that you can reapply dye to. Using bleach or colour stripping products will leave your hair with an uneven tone, leaving it difficult to achieve the colour youíre after.

Hi Capri

To go back to your honey blonde from a red can be a long process as when lifting out red it will have to go through certain levels of lift including orange . Yes bleach would have to be used however there are so many treatments on the market now that can look after your hair as you go through this process. You could also find a salon that uses a product called OLAPLEX, this can be placed into the colour mixture and strengthen the hair as your colour develops . A second phase is applied at the basin and left for ten minutes this is to reinforce the strengthening process. You can also go a step further and use phase 3 at home itís a great product and works very well. Remember when you are doing any chemical process you must look after your hair.







Stephanie asks:
I have been transitioning out of relaxed hair for a little over a year. I want to make sure that my hair is as healthy as possible so it can grow long. I would like to know if it would be better for my hair to straighten it once every two weeks (and forgo washing and styling in between) or to get box braids every 5 weeks and washing as needed. I would want the braids to be on the smaller side to be easier to style and I would get an extra foot of synthetic hair added. I put my hair in protective styles like a french braid or pull it up with a scrunchie, so I there is not much damage in between washes when it is straight. But I imagine there are trade-offs. The heat from straightening canít be good for hair. On the other hand, the tension of the braids on the scalp and slower distribution of sebum down the hair shaft is likely not healthy either. Short of wearing my hair naturally curly, which would be better for my hair?

Thank you!

Hey Stephanie

Yes you are quite right there are trade offs in both. Straightening your hair once every 2 weeks is great as long as when you shampoo you also use an intense treatment when shampooing, along with a product to protect the hair from the heat of the straighteners. Maybe try Redkenís Pillow Proof Express Primer Cream. This will help save time on the blowdrying and also give you a heat protection of up to 450 degrees. You could also use its sister product Pillow Proof blow dry 2 day extender: this is a dry shampoo which will refresh your look and absorb any unwanted oils. Your other option is braiding. The tension can affect your hair although if your hair is strong it shouldnít matter so much. With both you need to make sure you get your hair trimmed on a regular basis. I cannot say which is better however, I would be tempted to look after it with treatments and loose braids. Healthy long hair will be yours soon as you have thought about all areas best of luck.
