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 am looking for expert advice on what cut and colour I should have. The reason I am here is because Iíve asked a lot of hairdressers in real life and they tell íitís personal preferenceí. I am terrible at knowing what suits me so I really need help! I have an oval/pear face with big cheekbones but also a wide lower jaw and large chin. Iím looking for something that highlights the cheekbones but doesnít make my wide jaw look bigger. My hair is also very very thin. I am pale skinned with brown eyes. My natural colour is light ash brown/darkest ash blonde, I have brown eyes but my eyebrows are almost black. What colour should I go? I love dark hair but think it might be too much for my colouring?? Help!!

Hi Ruth, Firstly I would have some blonde highlights a cool blonde, this way the will add dimension to you hair, make you natural colour appear darker which in turn will compliment your brows, skin tone and eye colour. If the highlights are bleach they will also help the hair feel thicker and fuller. ...More >
Secondly the cut, having the sides of your hair shorter and a side fringe will show off your cheek bones and a soft layered/textured edge around jaw length or slightly longer will soften your chin.
See above, you can of course opt for longer and shorter version of the above style, but it sounds perfect for you. Good luck, have courage and go for it!

Hello Dear Hair Expert, I have been growing my hair which is thick and dark. I have been colouring it with nice and easy 5A permanent and have never had problems before,however,it has become extremely dry and frizzy. I do not know what to do with it! I have used expensive hair masks and conditioners but to no avail.
I have been swimming in a pool once a week, but wear a swimming hat, but the water does somehow get through a bit. Do you think the chlorine is the culprit here? Is there any advice you can give me to get it back into good condition.
I am going to be a mother of the bride in August, so i am panicking a bit now. I think I will have to bite the bullet and chop it all off!
Also, any advice about how I can still enjoy my swimming, I do not really want to keep my head out of the water as I cannot swim properly like that. And advice or recommendations will be greatly appreciated, Thanking You

Hello Jayne, Firstly I am hoping that you donít comb through the colour every time you apply, if you do please stop and but a semi permanent version of the colour or keep the ends topped up and refreshed with a brunette colour conditioner? ...More >
Secondly, yes chlorine can make a big difference to the quality and condition of the hair so make sure as soon as you are out of the pool you shampoo your hair twice to remove the residue.
There are so many contributing factors to the change of texture and condition of hair so please try the above, make sure you are using the best quality moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and mask possible Ė I like Redken, Joico and Nioxin as professional brands. Make sure you comb the conditioner through before rinsing as this helps smooth the hair. Have a trim, double check your diet contains some omegas and vitamin, E & D else take a supplement. When you blowdry and style make sure you take your time always using medium heat and speed and as low a temperature as possible for hot air stylers and irons. I am also a huge fan of hair supplements so try them too if possible.
Really good luck, this will really help and enjoy the wedding x x
