Karen asks:
My son is 15 and has ginger hair that is very thick and curly. He washes it every other day and uses straighteners. It is now beginning to break off and fall out. Should he stop straightening it or are there some better products to protect it. He hates his hair being curly. He also wants to dye it black but will this be difficult if heís ginger?

First invest in some professional straighteners, they will look after his hair condition. As for dying his natural hair black? It may look good on him but the up keep to stop the root area showing will become constant. Keep the red hair.

Sarah asks:
I have naturally mousy brown hair. Over the past few years I have been dying it a dark chocolate colour. I love how healthy it looks when I dye it a few shades darker than my natural colour. However, a few weeks ago I decided to go for a change and dyed it plum. I like the colour, but I have a formal event to go to in a few weeks and I donít feel that my hair colour fits the occasion. What colour would you recommend changing to from plum? I would like a nice brown, maybe a lighter chocolate, but I donít know if this will be possible from plum. If Iím in danger of turning my hair a funny colour Iíd rather stick to plum, or just go back to a dark chocolate. At the moment the plum colour isnít as intense as it was when I first dyed it, so I thought that now would be a good time to change the colour, but Iím really not sure where it would be sensible to go from here. Also, Iím keen to start using more greener products and I have seen a product called Naturtint which has had good reviews. Would this be likely to íclashí badly with the chemicals I already have in my hair from the plum colour which is a LíOreal hair colour?

Changing your colour too often can be very problematic. Even though you have this event to go to I would try and stick it out until even more of the warm plum tone comes out. Your hair condition will be affected if you apply too many chemical colourants to it.

For absolute comfort always see a colour technician.

Natalija asks:
I have been dying my hair light blonde for about 8 years and I am satisfied with my colour but my roots are very dark) it is never the same colour as the rest of my hair; it is always darker with a little bit of red.

I assume your hair at the scalp is naturally dark and that is why you are pulling the red tones. The only way to get a pretty blonde on darker levels is to lift (bleach) and deposit tone or colour. If you are naturally a dark blonde than you can achieve a blonde shade with a colour and a high % of developer, however it sounds as if you have been using high lift products and bleaches in the past so unfortunately to maintain your desired result you will have to continue.
