Daisy asks:
I have waist length, naturally dark brown hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted the Balayage style with a slightly lighter brown. After the treatment, I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís blotchy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry. I had no split ends before this but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because itís often damaging and I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour).

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.

Vistie Marsden asks:
I am so sick of my frizzy hair! I have tried everything from sulphate free shampoo to deep conditioners and frizz remedies and so many different brands! I use hair mousse, I use leave in conditioner, I always rinse my hair in cold water after washing and I use a diffuser. It seems to be dry like straw and Iíve had enough of it! I even made a concoction from things in my cupboard such as peanut butter, lime, coconut oil, olive oil and apple cider vinegar as a hair mask. What do I do? The ends of my hair donít appear to be split but are rough to touch. I have not coloured my hair so I do not know what is wrong?! Any advice?

Hello vistie, naturally curly hair is lacking in moisture , so make sure any treatments are moisture based not protein based or you could be making the problem worse. Zinc deficiencies can cause the hair to be dry and brittle so a good hair supplement can help your hair from the inside. Use a styling cream on your hair rather than mousse as this can dry hair out , leave to dry naturally or only take the worst of the moisture out with a diffuser. As the hair will form better curls and take moisture in whilst drying naturally.

Hi Lacey

Iím so sorry that your having such a drama just a couple of days before your wedding! ...More >

So I suggest you ask her to reapply a blue based toner something on a level 10 or 11 mixed with 6% developer apply to the orange areas and comb through after about 10 mins the orange should be neutralized and be ready to rinse off.

You need a protein porosity equalizer sprayed on the rest of the hair and then a teaspoon of bleach power 20 mls of 3% developer and 20mls of warm water this needs to be applied to the ends of the hair again should only need to be 10 mins maximum 20 mins.

Then shampoo and a treatment masque applied with a plastic cap under heat for 20 mins, rinse out then apply a toner with 3% developer equal parts warm water I would suggest a natural or beige toner on level 10 or 11 again for only 10 mins. Rinse, shampoo then apply another treatment under heat with plastic cap for 20 mins.

That should restore you back to a creamy blonde in time for the big day and make your hair feel fabulous again.

Good luck and enjoy your special day x x
