Ellie asks:
I have very thick light brown/dark blonde shoulder length hair which is quite wavy, but does not look good naturally, so I either mousse or straighten it. However, it always goes rather wavy towards the end of the day. How can I keep the style through the day? I have had blonde highlights, which I like, and now I would like to dye it a medium blonde colour. Would this look ok? Is there anything else I could do to my hair?

Dear Judith:
It could be different causes why your hair its going green, generally blonde hair can show ''acid'' colours easier than darker colours, that is because hair its absorbent and absorbs minerals and salts from the water like it could be chlorine or copper oxide. To remove this, you need to get liquid 30 volumes peroxide and soak the hair with it and watch it till disappear, then apply it to the hair and finish it with a clarifying shampoo cover this one with a plastic cap and bake it under the dryer for about 15 minutes, condition and treat the hair.

Marion asks:
I had some low lights about 2 months ago that reacted with a henna colour I had put in my hair ( I did not realise this would happen) so the hairdresser put an all over colour on to cover up the green. This has now faded and I am left with a thick band of greenish tinge at the back of my head. I have spent the last couple of years growing my hair and do not want to have it cut short again. The salon did a strand test to see if I could have another colour but it reacted badly. They said my hair would be worse. Please help! Is there anything I can do to neutralise the green or that I can use to cover it. It is also now really dry (my hair is naturally dry and wavy anyway so this is a nightmare!) I am now tying my hair back in a ponytail every day to disguise the problem.

Henna is a progressive dye that stays in the hair until it grows out, even if it looks as if it has completely faded. There is nothing you can do but use lots of conditioning treatments and gradually have the henna coloured hair cut off. Because of this problem I never recommend clients to use Henna on their hair at home.







Paula asks:
I have medium long, very thick, wavy, wiry, natural auburn hair. I am looking for an easy to manage style that will make me look younger. I am 50.

Try having some long layers cut through. This will make the hair lighter and the texture will be much more interesting and easier to manage because there is less hair. When you wear it curly the curls will be more separated and the volume will be less.
