Gillian asks:
I have my hair coloured and it grows out grey from the roots. For the past couple of months it has been fading quickly and the colour comes of the grey roots almost instantly. I have a back problem and bone loss and have osteoporosis. I am on a lot of medication but have been for a number of years. The only new medication is the tablet once a week for osteoporosis. Is there anyway to preserve the colour?

Obviously you have had colour before that lasted and your are using the same product of color now, so it sounds like the medication is what is affecting your colour. If it is a dark permanent colour there is no reason for the color to fade off at all. You would or should just get a re-growth and usually a full head color needs a re-touch every 4 weeks as the hair grows approximately 1/2 -inch per month. Sometimes lighter blonde shades can fade off quicker due to the fact the dye load is not as heavy as the darker shades and of course if it is a demi-permanent that also will be a reason for the colour dark or light to fade. Unfortunately usually colour problems or unusual situations are due to something being on the hair, like a medication, or mineral from pipes etc. I would suggest that before you do your colour, to use a chelating shampoo to help take some of the medication away from your hair, apply the color to dry hair. After use a cuticle sealer and do not wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours immediately after the colour, these products mentioned can be found in the JOICO line, not sure this is the answer but it might help?

Lacey asks:
My Instructor at School is suggesting we use our flat irons to tap foils while in the clients hair to help them process faster. What are the pros and cons of this method?

First, be very, very careful with this method. Professional colours are designed and manufactured to colour hair to a specified time.Yes heat can speed up this process but all the manufacturers give specific guide lines and there is a professional electrical process like the Climazone from Wella for example. I would totally stay away from this method you mention with anything to do with colouring, especially bleach. The colour development and process is not only about time but result and hair condition. I have heard and seen people do this, but I WOULD NOT recommend it. I personally would rather allow the Full development time to allow the lift and tone required. The intense heat used from a straightening iron may lift the colour quicker but it will in fact increase the porosity of the hair and the colour will fade much quicker as well as the condition been affected. A good quality platform irons are a fantastic product for using AFTER colour as they will maintain the moisture and smooth the cuticle to help maintain the lustre, shine and hair condition.

Georgia asks:
My hair is naturally wavy and frizzy. I really donít like it so I straighten it most days. However, the problem is that it is also very thin, which is ok when I donít straighten it, but when I do, it looks really thin and you can even see my ears through it. How can I make it look thicker?
