I have been dying my hair permanent black for years and then I decided last year to try ombre, so I had it pre-lightened. Only parts of my hair worked and the top half didnít take to it at all. Anyway my hair ended up being a horrible orange colour on the bottom which looked awful with my black roots, so 1 week later I put the permanent black back over it. Since, it has become weak and I find Iím always losing a lot of hair and itís not as thick as it used to be. It especially feels a lot thinner on one side. Can you tell me why this could have happened and will it ever go back to normal again?

Hi Joanne, Iím sure the product took unevenly due to the length of time you have been colouring your hair black and overlap of colour in certain areas. Iím surprised the salon didnít offer to tone it for you? I suspect that perhaps the bleach was mixed with 40 vol developer and that is what has caused the hair to deteriorate, you must apply a protein treatment as well as add a treatment mask into to your regular hair care regime and perhaps have a little trim and you should find it recovers quickly. Thank you

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.
