Millie asks:
My natural hair colour is brunette. Last year September time I had my hair fully bleached and coloured blue with purple tips. Obviously as it faded the purple went green so I would go over it with blue and after a few weeks it would fade green again. My roots would go a pale turquoise colour, whilst the middle section of my hair was bright blue (the colour I wanted) and the ends would be green.

I tried removing the colour multiple times and using every technique I could find to fade the blue at least so green so I could dye it red. It went a dark cherry colour for about 3 days, then blue started coming back through, as if the permanent red dye just slipped off it. That happened twice so I just left it. Eventually it was from red to blue to green top to bottom. I cut the green bits off and the majority of the blue and put bright pink over it all, which turned my hair pink and purple and red. Now itís fading and my roots are coming through, there are still very stubborn blue bits and also blonde tips that just wonít hold or take to dark colours. I am wishing to go burgundy mauve ombre, but I have no idea where to start as all the colour removing techniques havenít worked at all (colour b4, vitamin c, anti dandruff shampoo). Help!

Hi Millie, it sounds to me that you have such a colour build and your hair is also very porous and thatís why itís hard for you to achieve a desired result. I suggest you do a few clarifying shampoos leaving the shampoo on for 15 minutes at a time before rinsing and repeating. This should help remove some of the colour build up, the next thing is to do a few treatment masks to help even out the porosity. Then you can apply the desired colours to the hair, make sure it is clean and dry and has had no conditioner, add 10 minutes to the processing time as well and hopefully you will get a great result.

Use colour save shampoo, regular treatment masks and comb conditioner through before rinsing to help maintain the condition of your hair as well as help prevent colour fade.
Good luck





Amber asks:
I am naturally a brunette and went fully blonde in October (not platinum), with different shades of blonde throughout. I decided last week it was getting too much work to keep having my roots touched up, so decided to go for a Balayage. So my hairdresser darkened bits of my blonde (about 2-3 inches down from my roots) and tried to match it to my roots/natural colour. However, itís not brown at all! Itís a purple/auburn colour. She said itís normal and would eventually go to a natural brown but Iíve tried to find information online from other people, and canít find anything about dying blonde hair back to brown, and it turning this dark auburn colour. Will these reddish tones naturally fade out like she said (and how long will that take), or do I need to go back to the hairdressers to have it corrected? I have blonde hair now with dark purple/red on top.

Hi Amber, It sounds to me as you may need to go back and have an ash based light brown applied to the root area. It maybe that a warm based brown was applied to your blonde to prevent it going ash or green as you would normally do a two step colour process when darkening blonde more than two shades. So a quicker way is to apply a warm based colour, but that then can mean you end up with an auburn/purple! You just need a base and have light brown reapplied to neutralise the warmth and not go too dark. You should be sorted then. Good luck
