Hi, I have been dying my darkish brown hair at home using Koleston 8/00 light natural blonde (permanent) with 40% vol peroxide. I have a lot of grey at the roots, but managing to cover these following advice you gave to somebody on here about increasing the ratio to 1 : 1 and leaving on longer.
My question is how can I brighten up my hair, without it becoming too yellow. I regularly use a blue shampoo and professional colour care products; the overall condition of my hair is good. Ideally I would like to go blonder, but not sure what shade of colour to buy. Can you help asap as Iím hoping to do this at the weekend. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.

Hi Valerie, I am so sorry I didnít get to your question sooner, I went away for a much needed break! I was thrilled to hear that some advice previously offered was useful to you. To get you to a lighter shade I suggest using a clarifying or high detergent shampoo, leave it on your hair for 5 minutes before rinsing and repeating. Then investing in some blonding shampoo and conditioner, but using that at this time of year will mean you can actually lift up to 2 shades. The formula for your roots will then be a 9.00 or 10.00 with 40 vol use the 1:1 ratio and keep to the increased processing time. If you want to counteract a bit of the excess warmth use an ash shade as part of the formula I would go with 9.00 with 10.01 that way you are neutralising the warm tones and getting lighter. If you donít get the lift (Iím sure you will) from deep cleansing and the blonde shampoo and conditioner how about some very fine highlights? Really good luck x

Hi there, I have a client with really stubborn greys. Her natural colour is very close to jet black. However, the colour doesnít always take to the greys(it can either not take well around her hairline or wash out quicker than the rest. Iíve used a few different brands but Marijel colour seems to work best - however, the issue is still there. With a 20vol peroxide.... Do you have any other tips or recommendations on what else I can do in the application process, or any other products to use or mix... Thank you in advance! Nitasha x

Hello Nitasha, This is a regular problem so be comforted you are not alone. There can be lots of reasons why the colour may not take so I suggest you ask the client not to apply face cream anywhere near her hairline the day of the colour and preferably the colour be clean. When you mix the formula make sure you have double the amount of colour to developer, this is sometimes called double the dye load, it means the extra pigments in the colour are able to deposit on the harder to colour grey hair. Increase the processing time by 10 minutes as well. Please remix the normal ratio as if you take the root formula through the hair it will make it darker!
I do hope this helps.

Iím planning on getting my hair fully bleached at a salon soon and Iím getting a pastel pink toner all over. Iíve been told it will need a lot of upkeeping and Iím not sure where to start. I have looked around for ímust dosí with bleached hair and Iíve spotted hair masks, conditioners, oil etc. But my biggest concern is washing it. Do you know of any shampoos or other cleaning products that would be suitable for a pastel pink toner on newly bleached hair?
|Answered By: |
Hi Lauren, The most important thing with bleach is to keep the hair in good condition. This means using shampoo for colour treated hair, a regular treatment mask and a conditioner that you comb through before rinising. If the bleached hair is kept in good condition the pastel pink will last longer, I suggest to my clients to mix some of the pink toner into a bottle with their conditioner creating a pink conditioner and use every time you shampoo your hair. Leave it on a few minutes and comb through before rinsing.
Good luck, I am sure you will love it!
