Mariya asks:
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?

Hi Mariya

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

Laura asks:
Hi. As a child my hair was very blonde and as I got into my late teens it went from blonde to like a very very light brown. I have dyed it reds and blacks for some years now and even though my eyebrows are very light blonde I have forgotten what my natural colour is. A week ago I had red hair but my roots came through a very ashy brown colour and I then dyed my it black. My eyebrows are a light blonde but I darken them at the moment but I would really like my hair to be blonde again. My hair is very thick wavy and the length is now just below my shoulder blades. Is it possible to go from black to blonde without having to bleach my hair more than once? and can you give me any advice of how to bleach the black colour out and what are the best products to use.

Thank You

Hi Laura

With such long and thick hair I really donít feel its professional of me to advise you to do it yourself, Iím sorry. I would go to a salon and have multi tonal highlights and gradually work towards the lighter colour you desire. This way you wonít do too much damage and you will also get a more even result as you will have colour build up from the black which will be hard to remove evenly. ...More >

You can maintain and make subtle changes to the colour with toners and colour conditioners through the process.

God luck

Bethia Goodsir asks:
Iíve recently been diagnosed as having seborrheic dermatitis. I get it in my eyebrows and ears too but itís worse on my scalp. Iíve tried the Selsun shampoo I used to use for my mild dandruff but itís not touching it. Iíve also had Nizoral, Alphosyl and Capasal shampoo as well as Cocois cream and Betnovate scalp application but nothing works. Iíve also been trying more natural remedies such as an olive/coconut oil mask before every wash and a shampoo from a natural shop that is full of soothing and antifungal ingredients but they arenít working either. The only thing that did work was the onion juice treatment I tried but the smell was too much so I quit. Can you suggest anything? I feel like pulling my hair out. Thank you.

Hello Bethia, seborrhoea dermatitis is as a result of your natural oil sebum and the yeast Mfurfur building up on your scalp and this will create an itching .the best thing to reduce the itching is more frequent washing so that you keep any oil build up to a minimum. Also the skin cells are more adherent to the scalp and will therefore create scales as the skin is producing quicker than usual and hasnít fully keratinised -going dry and hard, so that it flakes off easily. Try Tony Maleedy juniper shampoo available on line as this helps to suppress the production of the scales . If you have a local Trichologist to you they will generally have scalp preparations to help lift the scales off .
