Kiera asks:
Hi guys, Iím thinking about dying my hair red in the near future and was just wondering if i should bleach my hair first as it is almost black ( naturaly ) i know it says on the boxes of home dye kits that they are not suitable for bleached or natural blonde hair. I have tried dying my hair red in the past without bleaching first using home kits and the red didnt even touch my hair.

If you are thinking of a very strong pillar box red then this will be the case. The first thing to think about is that upkeep comes the continuous cost. If you were to bleach your hair first , yes this would result in a more vibrant colour. However you would have to go very light to do so, which may not hold for long. You might have to re-apply every week to keep it fresh and vibrant. ...More >

Another thing to think about is the condition of your hair. By bleaching it you will be damaging the hair, so if you go ahead remember to condition your hair. I would recommend REDKEN ALL SOFT shampoo and conditioner to replace moisture into the hair.

So to wrap it up yes you can do it but add up the cost and maybe do a strand test first to see the result you would get.

The cut you need is a graduated layer. This means the longest layer is the final length and the other layers lie within 2cm on top. All the one length and uniform layers are a no no it justs elevates tangling. ...More >

Use a tangle teezer brush, hold her hair in a ponytail and brush the hanging hair from bottom to held hair its more a tapping the brush on your hand motion than a tugging the hair one. Drop the hair and continue up to the scalp. This should be taught to your daughter too, Its fine to use a detangler make sure its a kids product , Little sprout, Miniu, are great. For sleeping spray with detangler and plait this minimises knots in the morning. Its a good idea to grow a fringe out with type if hair, if this is possible. This enables you and her to tie hair back out of the face. I have attached a photo of the type of cut you need.

Hope this helps.


Amanda asks:
Do you have any tips on how to get close to the scalp when doing foiled highlights?

Hi Amanda.

Yes I do. ...More >

One of the most important points is to ensure your slice section is fine. No more than 4mm thick.

This ensure your underneath foil can get very close to the roots and get the best possible result.

One other trick ( which is brilliant)

Is to place a thin strip of double sided sticky tape on the inside of the underneath foil.

This way when you place the foil in the hair the hair sticks to the foil as well as to the top foil once folded over.

Hair Wizard tip!!! works brilliant, no slipping or bleeding, this way you can get right up to the root.

Try it its magic.
