I have dyed my Mam’s hair with so many different colours and it always come out the same colour which is very golden/yellow, now I have recently bleached it all and toned it with luo po1 toner which turned it a nice silvery colour as she wanted but after 2 weeks it is starting to go that golden/yellow again what can I do to keep the silvery white colour she wants?

There is a product on the market called shimmer lites/lights. This eliminates yellow and creates a more silvery look.

I am white British, but my hair resembles an afro, but blonde. I would like it to be curly, but it is straight/marginally wavy, with some curls at the back, and instead of lying flat, it sticks up in a spherical ’gravity-defying’ shape, even though it is nearly five inches long. It isn’t frizzy, but I can’t make it lie flat and it gets incredibly dry very easily. I would like it to be more curly, and less unruly, and want to stop it from sticking up in all directions but don’t quite know how to go about it (it can become very tangled and difficult to keep knot-free). How would I best go about making it curlier, and solving the problem of it standing on end?

Curly hair has a tendency to be dry and brittle, and as you know, very hard to control. Curly hair needs moisture so make sure you use products that lock in the moisture, but are light enough to keep curls bouncy. Try using a moisture shampoo and conditioner like my Lee Stafford Climate Control Shampoo and Conditioner, which are light but help to lock in the moisture and create and an ‘umbrella’ to shield hair from humidity and dry weather conditions. ...More >
Before blow drying hair smooth my Climate Control Serum from the root to the tip, massaging it into the hair ends. This super hero serum melts into the hair, nourishing from root to tip and will keep hair in check, beautiful, silky and smooth. Repeat when hair is dry in case you need more of a moisture boost.
Always use a cool or medium heat on your hairdryer as well as a diffuser pointed downwards to keep curls look defined. Otherwise if you use a thin nozzle and a high heat hair will look dry and frazzled! Also, never brush curly hair while you are drying it as this will break up the definition of the curl and cause major frizz and zero shine. A quick and easy tip – wind hair around fingers to keep it in a spiral, and you can repeat this throughout the day.
It is also worth doing a deep conditioning treatment 2/3 times a week to get your hair feeling supple and soft again. Try my Lee Stafford Hot Shots which are self warming treatment shots with pro repair formula to strengthen, replenish and restore hairs moisture balance and will keep your hair tangle free.
When you have time, using tongs is the fool proof way of getting fabulous curls. Try using my Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Styling Iron. It has curved plate edges so will create smooth, silky curls in a flash.

My hair is long, dark and straight and I plan on having it half up-half down and curly on my wedding day. I am doing my hair myself, I was wondering if you could recommend which products to use to get the curls to hold. I need them to be in all day and night which will be about 16 hours. What do you think will be best? And should I use curling tongs, rollers or straighteners?
Congrats on your forthcoming wedding!

I would recommend heated rollers on clean dry hair. Use Clynol "Mousette" when drying then Clynol "Freeflow" hairspray on the sections before you roll them in. Try getting a friend to help or maybe a young hairdresser if £s are an issue. Tension is the key to getting a good result. Do a few trials before to make sure you are happy and good luck!
