Sue asks:
I have very dark brown natural colored hair, and have had it blonde since I was 15 (I am 34 now). The bleach began to dry my hair badly and in order to give my hair a break I colored it a dark red to hide my regrowth to avoid retouching while I conditioned it. Most of the red had faded to a lighter brown except at the roots, where it remains a darker auburn. Is there anyway to get back to blonde at this point without really doing serious damage to my hair?

As your colour before you put the red was blonde and obviously was damaged, it does not matter if you put another colour on your hair the damage will still be there, you are talking about bleaching on the top of what was already bleached a few times, I have seen this process done by many salons in the past and believe me it always finishes with the same result, a mess. I will suggest firstly treat your hair with a strong product. I would like to recommend Tanagra, this is a fusion of Keratin and Collagen within a few sessions your hair would be restored almost to its natural state. As for home use try J.F. Lazartigue shampoo with collagen. I would also like to suggest that for now you maintain your hair in a colour similar to your own so you can restore your hair and eventually you can go back to blonde.

Kate asks:
I have been seriously thinking about getting some brightly coloured hair extensions, I only want streaks not length, will this cause the serious damage. I have read about in magazines, or does that only apply to a full head of extensions?

There should never be any damage to your natural hair or scalp regardless of how many extensions are applied as long as you visit a professional extension stylist who uses a reputable manufacturer. Any damage caused is invariable due to inexperienced people applying them or people not caring for their extensions correctly once they have been applied. Extensions are safe on the hair. Vibrant hair extensions are great fun and can be used to compliment clothes on a night out or just for a bit of a change. Racoon offers two types of coloured extensions - the new Vibrant Real Hair in gorgeous shades like Violet, Peacock Blue, Ruby Red etc and also Synthetic Hair in bright shades like hot pink, canary yellow and lime green etc, pretty much any colour you like!

If your scalp is flaking regularly, perhaps it might be a good idea to visit a Trichologist. They can help diagnose the condition of your scalp and the best way to treat it. You can find them in your yellow pages or search in our directory for the nearest consultant. ...More >

Your doctor might be able to help also.

Prior to that you could however look at a few things like changing your shampoo. Perhaps your hair has become conditioned to the shampoo you are currently using. Try a good quality dandruff shampoo. Scalp treatment for dry skin the Philip Kingsley range is good
Drink a lot more water, when your skin is drying in any particular area it could be due to hydration.
a gentle shampoo designed for everyday use.
