Julian asks:
Hello, I am a male in my mid fifties and my hair has gone around 80 to 90% grey/white now, from itís original dark brown. As a result, I have been home dying my hair dark brown/black for a couple of years now. I have decided that I want to bite the bullet and go back to my natural grey/white.

Today, I tried a few home treatments to remove the colour, including: 1) Washing it with laundry detergent mixed with Head & Shoulders 2) Washing it (again) with bicarbonate of soda mixed with Head and Shoulders 3) Smothering it in lemon juice and finally 4) Application of the "Colourless" hair colour removal system. The end result of this has been to take out most of the black/dark brown, such that the longer parts of my hair are now a coppery mid-brown and the shorter parts, pretty much bright ginger! I do have another pack of the Colourless treatment and I will do another round of all the above treatments tomorrow. However, it would seem that this line of attack will not get me back to my natural grey any time soon. I am thinking that I will have to bleach it to remove the colours that I now have. My question is this: what process and products should I use to get back to my original grey? Perhaps I can only go to a blond or something and then dye it grey for now? Thanks for your help. Julian

Hi Julian, The best action is the have your hair cut shorter because even bleaching the hair will leave a colour that needs to grow out. You can use a silver conditioner to help neutralise the warm colour but a big trim and more regular trims is the solution. Good luck x





Kate asks:
I have fine dark brown hair. Itís always been longer than my shoulders. Iíve dyed it a couple time and really loved having different hair. I am currently thinking of cutting it short (pixie cut or shorter) but Iím not sure how good it will look. How will I know if it will look okay? Or should I just cut it and hope the final result will look good?

Hi Kate, I suggest you chat to your regular stylist but Iím sure it would really suit you and you sound like you really are up for a change so go for it! Also fine hair is easier to manage shorter and you can also add body and texture more effectively. Thank you x







Anusha asks:
I recently went for a haircut (my hair is dark brown/black). They dyed my hair a light brown balayage, starting really close to the root and all over, which I did not want. I wanted to get highlights that are dark brown and leave most of my black hair to still be visible. They are willing to fix it but I would like to know how they would do this, would they dye it black, and then do some brown on top?

Hi Anusha, I think they would be better to apply black to your roots and then foil black lights through your hair that way your hair will look mostly black with brown lights! Hope this helps
