Amie asks:
I have been dyeing my hair for the past few years, I am naturally very dark brown but I dye my hair red, but it always fades or turns what I call ginger or dodge brown. I want my hair to be a powerful proper red, so I was thinking about bleaching my hair first, washing it a few times and leaving it a few days before dyeing it red. Would that work? I have a friend who said he turned proper ginger when he tried bleaching and dyeing in the same day? If I do this do I need to leave it a few weeks before getting highlights and low lights? I am a student so I canít really afford a whole head colour in a salon as I am having my hair cut and high lights and low lights put in soon which is costly anyway.

Do not pre lighten your hair!

Otherwise each time you want to retouch your root area you will have to have the same process, this will cost you extra money. ...More >

If you have your hair pre lightened first you will find your red fades much faster as your hair will be more porous due to the lightening process.
What I would recommend is having the lightest vibrant red shade you can as a permanent colour as a full head application, with woven highlights introduced. After the highlights have been introduced you could have a vibrant red stainer applied, like Sebastian Colourshines as this will increase the tone of not only your highlights, but the overall full head red colour on the rest of your hair.

The colour shine product is also fantastic for refreshing your tone and will not affect the condition, in fact it will help the condition.





Harry asks:
I have straight hair, and as it gets longer it gets a bit curly, but I would like really wavy hair which has a bit more depth, like a surfers hair, is there any products that I can put in my hair to give it a bit more movement?

You could have a very loose perm through your hair to create that effect and hair with more movement is definitely making a comeback. Apart from that there are lots of gels that you can put through your hair and then diffuse it to get that effect.







Alex asks:
I want to grow my hair, but it always seems to curl at the tips. I don't have time to straighten my hair but I do blow dry it which sorts it out a bit. Could you recommend a good styling product to keep it straight after blow drying and mess it up a little? Also the back of my hair seems to outgrow my fringe, should I get my hair cut to even it out a little but not to the extent of a bowl? An idea on what I want my hair to look like can be seen in the style gallery done by Reflections.

We have great products from Alterna and GHD that you put through your hair prior to blow drying that helps repel moisture and so keep your hair straighter for longer.

I am not sure where you live but you could always print that style off and take it with you to the salon you visit and ask for a consultation. The stylist will then discuss what possibilities you have.
