|Sophie asks: |
I have had blonde highlights in my hair since it started going dark, about ten years ago. I have started travelling a lot and decided to home dye my hair blonde. It worked really well and actually added condition. I have now noticed that my natural hair colour is really quite dark and my eyebrows are darker than a few years ago. I would like to match my natural chocolate brown hair colour and be a brunette, which I have tried before and like a lot. What is the best way of changing from very light blonde to a rich dark in a salon? I do not mind paying but I would need a quick result as I am leaving to travel again in a few months?

I think the best thing for you Sophie is to visit a salon and have a consultation and a strand test first of all. Then the hairdresser will be able to give you a good idea what can be achieved. If you are sure you want to go ahead then it is a case of applying a permanent colour to your hair to balance your colour and give you a result very close to your natural colour. It is difficult to achieve exactly the same colour as your natural colour but we can certainly get it very close. You will also need to take some professional products with you to care for your hair as it will tend to fade due to the porosity of your hair and especially if you are travelling to hotter climates & swimming. It is also possible that you could purchase a product from your salon called Colourfresh which is a conditioning semi permanent colour that you can apply to keep your colour looking fresh.

I have thick natural curly hair and I use Remington straighteners. I want to change make and thought that because of my hair type I should use the new UKH ionic straighteners. They seem good? Are they? And could you also give me some tips for getting my hair sleek because when I straighten it, it goes puffy!

Always use a heat protector please apply the product before drying your hair, make sure your hair is always dry before straightening, and take small sections, iron your hair downwards and do not repeat the action more than twice, glide the iron slowly make sure that you moisturise your hair using a good treatment weekly

Since losing the use of my right arm through cancer I find it very difficult to style my hair I used to tong or hot brush it to give it height and body but can no longer do that. I now have a cupboard full of styling products that I have tried but find do not work. I cannot use gel or wax as I cannot apply it properly so I found a brilliant spray called ONCE that you sprayed on wet hair then I styled it with my fingers then dried it then sprayed again. This product as now been discontinued so I am back to square one even the products my hairdresser recommends do not do the same.

Use a pre style spray -- you will find lots in Boots-- which will work as it would not clog the hair at roots, and it is good on dry hair too. The more you spray the more texture and guts it will give you hair. This is easy to apply and you should be able to manage as most come in spray bottles.
