|Lucy asks: |
I have naturally dark blonde thick, long hair. Around 2 years ago I began using John Freida go blonder controlled lightening spray that I didnít realise was damaging my hair until I went to the hairdresser and had a test on my hair to see if it could handle the bleach. The hair was too damaged and they told me to stop using the spray and come back in 6 months, I did this and during that time I used a bunch of hair repairing products so I could definitely have my hair dyed the pastel pink I wanted. After the time had passed they did another test and said I would have to come back again later, now I havenít used the spray in over a year and their current advise is to fully grow out my hair before I can bleach it. I am willing to cut my long hair short in order to be able to bleach it, however it is extremely difficult to tell the difference between my natural hair and the hair that has been treated and damaged cause theyíre a similar colour. Obviously I canít have it cut ridiculously short but I have no idea how much my hair has grown. Any advise on how to tell and if I could get I dyed ?

Hi Lucy, Have you thought about having some highlights (with bleach) that way much less commitment and damage? You can then apply the pastel pink you want and it will be true on the highlights but a slightly darker pink on the natural hair. I think you will love it, you must keep up a good hair care regime and get a decent trim but I think you should go for it.

I have been using hair bleach on my hair for a couple of years. I am quite sensitive to the after smell of bleach that stays in the hair for a few days. Could you recommend me a shampoo/conditioner product to take away that awful smell, At the moment I am using pPantene Repair and Protect which leaves my hair lovely and soft, but it will not take away bleach smell. Please could you advise me?

Georgie, You could try using a clarifying shampoo and leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing and repeating. Otherwise add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to your regular shampoo and conditioner, leaving for a few minutes before rinsing. Good Luck

My hair was Indian hair before it got messed up by perming it and ever since Iíve tried to get my hair back but it is hard and is extremely damaged. I have asked other hair stylist what to do and they have said that I need to wash my hair with great products, but I canít wash my hair every day because it will strip my hair out if I do. I want my hair back to be silky soft and long. I also want to leave my hair down but I canít because of the perm and I didnít even need it :( please help.

Oh Mari, You donít say how long ago you had the perm but try not to worry as your hair will recover. I suggest you use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, making sure you leave the conditioner on for 5 minutes and comb through before rinsing. Then apply an argan style oil to your wet hair and also comb through before leaving to dry. It doesnít matter if you donít shampoo your hair often as the natural oils from your scalp are very conditioning and so will help your hair recover. Invest in a moisturising mask and apply after you have shampooed your hair with a few drops of the oil of your choice, comb it through and cover with a shower cap for 20 minutes, rinse then apply conditioner and comb through before the final rinse. All the conditioning and combing through will help smooth your hair and weigh it down, but you must do this as a regular routine even if itís only weekly.
Really good luck and in a month you will feel so much happier with your hair.
