Dana asks:
Good day Gary! Last year my hair was bleached in salon 3 (!) times to get rid of henna. The idea was to remove henna...well, my hair turned up to be green/grey. I let cut the most of it and colored hair with semi-perm hair dye in brown (level 5-6). My own hair are dark blond (level 6). I will not take riskto go to the salon again even if i was paid for (it was one of the best salon in the country) and I am still very upset with what happened with my hair. I have a fear to do to the hairdresser again. No idea, why here in Holland the master just will not listen the wish of the client. Question: with which product can I remove red-brown tint of hair and recolor it to warm blond level 7 -8 myself (or with the help of someone, not "professional").Thank you in advance, Dana.

Hi Dana.

OMG!!! This is very difficult. ...More >

I would not try and do this yourself as It is very difficult.

Without seeing what your hair is like I would visit a professional salon for Advice.

Ask them all the relevant questions you are asking here and take their advice.

This is not a simple task and the salon you first attended should have ensured that you as a client were serviced correctly but unfortunately I hear this too often.

You may have to compromise on what you actually want as a result as it will be very difficult indeed to actually get the colour you require with an even outcome given there is no doubt you will have natural regrowth also.

I would recommend that a strand test is taken from root to tip so that the result can be seen even before you contemplate a full head colour.



Izzi asks:
Hi Darren, my name is Izzi and I have a question regarding colouring. I have natural medium blonde hair that was highlighted last summer. I want to go to silver/white though, which I know requires bleaching and a lot of maintenance. was wondering if you had any advice on how to do it (at home or in a salon) and if you think it would be worth the effort? I don’t have damaged hair so I wouldn’t be too worried about the bleach, but I’d just like some extra info and advice from someone who knows what they’re talking about! Thank you.

Izzi you’re my dream client! This process is very achievable on your hair but I would only recommend doing this in salon with a professional colour specialist. Get your skin and hair tested appropriately. Also prepare yourself for high maintenance as this is one look that doesn’t Look great with roots. Also you’ll want to prepare yourself for some home maintenance. Keeping a white blonde white, especially in the summer months mean regular use of. A silver shampoo and a good range of hydrating products to keep your hair’s moisture levels up. Come and see me!

Shannon asks:
Please help. My scalp was burned and blistered at my local salon. I have been coloring my hair for years with no issues. I think product was on way too long. Stylist says it was due to the weather. What do you think caused my burns and blisters?

Hi Shannon

Thank you for getting in touch, so sorry to hear that your scalp has been burnt and has blistered. If you had visited the salon for a colour service and immediately after this service you recognised these symptoms then this may be the cause. Did you experience any burning sensation when the hair colour was on your scalp? It is a requirement that salons do a 24 hour patch test for new clients to prevent any allergic reactions such as burning and blistering, amongst others. Without seeing your scalp at the time I can not say for certain the cause, I do hope that your scalp has recovered and would advise you to make sure you always notify future stylists of this experience before any colour service.
