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.

Lisa asks:
My hair is coloured at the moment and is red, I want to go back to my natural brown but my hairdresser says that the only way to do this is to grow out the red. Is this the only solution as I really do not think I can put up with how awful it will look while growing it out. She refuses to bleach it out and says that if she puts a brown on top of the red it will not take.

It is hard to advise as I am not really sure how red your hair is. Your hairdresser is probably correct in their consultation - after all I am sure she is an expert in this field too. There are a couple of possibilities you could consider, whist you wait for your hair to grow out, wear hair extensions to even out the hair colour. They are not just about length but can be used for highlighting and low lighting and the cost can be similar to a cut & colour. Alternatively, your hairdresser could try to remove the hair colour. The L Oreal Efassor is a professional technique that will dissolve hair colour and take the hair back to its original colour - although you do really need to apply another semi-colour to even out the tones.

Julie asks:
I have medium brown hair and I have dyed it a purple/violet colour a few times. I started dying at home, I used a permenant colour and it always looked great, but would soon go a red colour, though fortunately this colour also looked good on me. I decided to see if by getting my hair coloured professionally would have an affect on how long my hair stayed purple. After it was coloured it again looked great and I asked the hairdresser if they could recommend a coloured hair shampoo as I thought it might have been my shampoo that was affecting my hair. I tried the one she suggested and now my colours gone much sooner than usual, without even going the red colour. If I get my hair coloured again I willl go back to my old shampoo now, but I am wondering if its actually my hair thats the problem. Do you think my hair just does not take/keep colour well?

From what you are saying I think the problem perhaps is more to do with the dye that the hairdresser has used, maybe its a bit to strong. A good colour shampoo is always used to keep your colour fresh and vivid.
