Jenna asks:
Hi, Iíve never dyed my hair before; I have rather tan skin and really dark brown long hair. I want to do something different with it to switch things up, like ombre it a slightly purplish ashy grey colour, so that itís still sort of dark but lighter than before. The only concern I have is that it will look awful because I have such dark hair. Also that it wonít blend nicely and naturally because I have straight hair. What do you think?

Hi Jenna, To get your hair from being very dark to any ash or cool colour will be quite a challenge. If I was you I would try having a bit of caramel balayage first to see how you get on, as then you can get lighter gradually and then experiment with toners etc as you have suggested? Good luck

Kim asks:
I had my hair highlighted a year ago, for the first time in 20 years. I thought my hair was pretty healthy. But, now it is dry, brittle and frizzy. It also looks wet sometimes, even when itís completely dry. It is also tangled all the time. I have medium length hair that is naturally wavy. I straightened it for years, but it was still healthy. I have tried several different conditioning treatments and nothing seems to work.

It sounds like your hair would benefit from a professional keratin treatment. This type of treatment Ė sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Blow Dry Ė uses a protein-based formula to smooth and repair, transforming dry, frizzy hair into manageable smooth tresses. You would no longer need to rely on your hair straighteners, and it is perfectly safe to use on your highlighted hair, even though it is damaged. This kind of keratin-based treatment is far more powerful and penetrates moisture deeper into the hair than the home conditioning treatments youíve tried in the past so you should see far better results. At Westrow we offer the original Kerastraight treatment, however if you do some research you should be able to find a local salon or experienced stylist offering a similar treatment

Kye asks:
I recently dyed my hair blonde, but it still looks a little ginger which is slowly wearing off. Iím washing with silver(purple) shampoo, but Iím unsure what else to do to try and lift the ginger. Do I wait for it to fade on its own or do I tone it at home or at a salon? Thanks

Hi Kye, I think you need to have the hair lightened a bit more; silver shampoo and conditioners are able to neutralise yellow tones rather than orange (ginger). So if your hair is lightened again the shampoo will work. Good luck
