Tania asks:
Hello. I am naturally very pale skinned with hazel eyes and brown hair that has a slight red hue, probably something to do with my Celtic roots! As Iím getting older this really doesnít suit me anymore. However my rather expensive salon canít get my hair to stay any sort of ashy colour... brown or blonde. It just warms up after a couple of weeks despite using toners. Please help, Iím at my witís end! Thank you

Hi Tania

I have the same issue, it becomes easier as we go grey, thatís something to look forward too!!! My suggestion is ask the stylist to work on the natural base of your hair, use double the amount of ash than normal in the formula, reduce the developer quantity (this makes the formula thicker and so leaves a stronger deposit) and process for 10 mins longer than usual. This normally does work, make sure you are using a gentle professional colour safe shampoo and perhaps an ash conditioner at home as well as this way you can control unwanted warm tones as you like? ...More >

There are colour formulas especially for covering resistant grey hair and in my experience these ash formula are great at not just covering grey but adding the extra tonal deposit we need. They are commonly called 00 or NN.

I hope this helps

Shahd asks:
Hey babes So i bleached my hair at home for the first time ever-just watched a ton of videos lol- I wanted to do it professionally but dang itís expensive, anyway I have ultra violet and cotton candy from manic panic. Iím going to dye my roots like a strong violet mixed with a bit of pink then the rest violet with a ton of pink. So because my hair is so thick my friend and I couldnít bleach it fast so it didnít process evenly and I bleached again with 20% instead 30% developer. But the roots were still kinda darker yellow so Iím wondering is it necessary to tone? Remember that I want a deep strong color

Hello and Happy new year to you Shahd

I would suggest that you re apply the bleach one more time as you really want and yellow orange base, the violet colour will neutralize the unwanted yellow tones and the pink will work well and fade less having a similar warm tone (orange/ yellow) as its base. You may need to apply the desired result colour twice to totally get the strong deposit you are after. ...More >

Good luck

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
