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.

Sarah asks:
My hair goes down to my collarbone and it has a little bit of wave to it I. I prefer my hair straight but straightening it is so much work. My hairstyle I've had for the past 3 years would be mid neck length with soft layers. I need my length to fit in a ponytail but I am looking for a new hairstyle. I have an oval face and my hair is dark brown and I am 16 years old. I was thinking just growing it out to have more choices or possibly dying it an even darker brown. Have you heard of any treatments that permanently straighten the hair for a period of time? And do you have any ideas for a new hairstyle?

I would recommend the Yuko System to you. It is quite expensive for someone your age, but well worth the price tag, as it lasts such a long time. Perhaps something you could save up for as a treat. It starts from around 250.00. It is a permanent straightening system that gives you a fantastic base to your hair, creating a healthy looking, shining foundation to work with if you wanted to introduce curls via GHDs or tongs later on down the line. The beauty of it is once you wash your hair in the morning you can just leave it to dry naturally and it will dry poker straight. Use my Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner to help you in your straightening quest - the Megaquat ingredient within the formula, works in conjunction with a positive and negative charge that keeps your hair super flat
