I would like to have a professional advise me as to the best colour length, etc. I have gone to many stylist praying one will have the skill needed but to date have had no luck. I am 62 and by day a juvenile probation officer and by the end of the week worn and tattered. Just looking for a lift to keep me on this mission smiling. Thank you and look forward to hearing from you

Itís so difficult to really advise you without seeing a picture of your current look! But I would suggest having one of the fabulous tonal greys/ graphites available and a textured bob trimmed into the nape. This is a shape that suits all hair types and face shapes and is so easy to maintain but also super simple to change up to different looks with styling products. I think itís always a great idea to go to a salon asking for models, this way a very enthusiastic trainee stylist will be able to offer advice and give you a fantastic change. ...More >

Good afternoon, I am mixed race and have a 3a/3b hair,two weeks ago I decided to straightening it, did my research to make sure I wouldnít damage my hair then i deep conditioned the hair, shampooed and conditioned again. I only used a heat protection, blow dry it, used a bit more of the heat protection and flat iron it with only one pass. Few days later I washed my hair and for my surprise it was dead straight. It doesnít look damaged since it is shiny and strong but in total I have washed it five times and no sign of curls, the best I can get is some waves after braiding with a bit of mousse. I have no idea what happened and why I donít seem to get my curls back, Iíve exhausted all the good, expensive products but there is no change to my hair. What did I do wrong and how can I correct it? I have long hair and it is all straight from roots to the tip...

I assume you have used a chemical relaxer? Well done for making sure you conditioned etc in order to protect your hair during the process. In a couple of weeks the relaxer will start to wear off and you should see some of your natural movement return. Meanwhile you can use magnesium infused products to try and enhance the wave/curl if you want to.

Im planning to color my dark brown hair with reddish tint to light silver. I would like a step by step process and some help with understanding toning after bleaching. I havent colored for at least 5 months. Last time i did it was regular box color burgundy hence the red in my hair,at least on the ends. I have semi thin hair and its a bit past shoulder length. These are the products i bought. Wella blondor bleach, wella 20 & 30vol developers, joico blue shampoo, matrix purple shampoo and conditioner, wella toner t14 & t18, and marc daniels purple leave in conditioner. How much of bleach and developer do i have to mix? Says the ratio is 1:2 or 1:1.5 and which toner do i have to use first? Also once i get the light blonde color what silver dye do i use?

Well this is a big job for you to do on your own hair and I wouldnít normally recommend that you take the challenge on yourself! My advice is that if you use the bleach with 30 vol mixed in equal parts and apply to the mid lengths and ends, cover with a plastic cap and leave for 30 mins. Shampoo the formula away and hopefully you will be at orange. Remix and apply the same formula to the root and spray some protein/ porosity equalizer conditioner on the mid lengths and ends and take the formula through. Cover again and process for around 30 mins up to 45 mins. Hopefully you should reach a yellow or pale yellow! Shampoo well and apply a treatment in order to condition the hair and scalp also to help even out the porosity. ...More >
Iím not familiar with either of the toners but I guess they are blue/ violet based so mix both with 10 vol / 3% developer and apply all over, comb through and process for up to 20mins.
Shampoo, rinse and repeat if required. You can then use you coloured shampoos and conditioners to balance the unwanted warm tones further.
Good luck and I do hope this helps
