Ann Graham asks:
I do not use colourants of any kind on my hair. I had a hairdresser at the house to put my long but fine hair up for a wedding. I had it washed and conditioned ready using my usual products. Just before leaving for the wedding I noticed an unusual smell from my hair much like perming solution or peroxide and there was a tinge of gold almost green in my hair. The next day I washed my hair and the smell was worse and my hair very dry and damaged. The hairdresser said she had not used anything but hairspray on my hair. I was wondering what could have caused my hair to be like this. My daughter who used to be a hairdresser has cut my hair for me says that something has been put on my hair to damage it so much. Can you please help Thank you

Dear Ann, yes this seems very unusual as it sounds like a chemical reaction has occurred causing the hair to become dry ! I can only guess that she may have used a styling product or hair spray that reacted with your products. The reaction will have caused the hair to lift slightly .Do you swim a lot? Build up of chlorine on your hair could react. Do you use a coloured shampoo or henna products as may also react. I suggest deep conditioning and regular cutting to remove the damaged hair.

I would always suggest re colouring on this level to be done at a salon. If the desired result is more than 2 shades darker than what you are currently and the salons not an option use a warm base, so something with a G or 3 on the end one shade lighter than you want to be. Apply it all over mixed with half water and half of the developer it comes with leave 20 mins before shampooing out and re drying. Then apply the desired shade the warm undertones you previously applied will act as a filler or pre pigment formula and prevent unwanted green or really cool base.

Allison asks:
So I want to donate about 6-7 inches of my hair. My hair is thick, curly, and brown. I figured out then when I cut it, my hair will land about where my chin is. I am afraid that my cheeks will look to chubby if I get a bad style. I also wish to dye my hair either a darker or lighter shade of brown. When I asked for opinions, I got mixed reviews. Those for lighter said that darker would make me look paler then I already am. Those for darker said that its better to dye your hair dark for the fall and winter months. I am not sure what to do. I am asking for suggestions, I think they will help me make my decision. Thank You!

Hi Allison

I always suggest wearing the hair a little smoother around the face and maybe keep the front sections slightly longer if you are concerned about your cheeks? Colour wise how about go dark with a few caramel slices through the slightly longer front sections and in the summer months add some more, winter reduce then you have a compromise in all areas and possibly the perfect look for you?
