Natalie asks:
What is a porosity test and how do you do them on a clients hair. I am at college doing hairdressing level 1 and I do not understand what is.

Diana DudasAnswered By:

You need to check the porosity to see how quickly the hair absorbs chemicals such as colours and perms. If you think of a sponge that you use in a bath. If you put the sponge in the water it soaks up the water and then will hold the water. This is because it has good porosity. If the sponge is old and the holes are too big, it will soak up the water very quickly, however if you take the sponge out of the water it loses all the water very quickly. This is because it has poor porosity. Hair is the same. If hair is damaged it will be like the old sponge. To test porosity you take a strand of hair and run your thumb and second finger along the hair from ends to root. If the hair feels rough it is damaged or has poor porosity. If it feels smooth it has good porosity or could be resistant. Hope this helps





Lisa asks:
I have shoulder length light brown hair, I had a few blonde highlights put in last night (foils) at home. It had gone a funny tinge of ginger in places, but the worst bit is that she never went right down to the roots, so I am now left with this unsightly dark patch on top of my head. What should I do?

The best thing you can do for now is to get a semi permanent hair colour in an ash blonde colour, this will tone down the orangey pieces. After a while you can re lighten the root area.







Janet asks:
I have shoulder length hair which for many years has been coloured. Last year I decided to let the colour grow out (I am nearly there) and find I am more than 30% grey. I do not want permanent colour for my hair as I like the grey but I would like to have fun with it now and then with some semi perm wild colours. I am 47 yrs old - can you suggest anything.

You could get a Quasi colour, this will cover the grey and leave your hair in optimum condition. It will also allow you to be more adventurous as the colour is not permanent.
