Elida asks:
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...

Hello Elida

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.

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
