Kayleigh asks:
Hi, I recently did a clients hair full head highlights with bleach and an in between colour Wella 5/37. I am due to do her her again next week and she said she wants to go slightly darker, so I thought about using a 4/37 which Wella doesnít do. Is it possible for me to make this colour mixing colours, or anything similar I could use? I also thought about mixing 2 parts 5/37 to 1 part 4/0... would this work? Thanks

Hi Kayleigh, Yes your formulation idea will work, you may lose a tiny bit of warmth mixing with a 4.0, but I donít think it will be that noticeable. If youíre concerned you could add a ľ inch of warm intensifier. Good luck, Iím sure your client will love it.

Kerry asks:
I am due to go to the hairdressers tomorrow I really want my blonde hair back but I was a hair model and had it toned purple. How can I get it back without bleach? Thank you x

Hi Kerry, The best thing to do if you donít want to use bleach is high detergent shampoo or clarifying shampoo. Leave the shampoo in your hair for 15 minutes before rinsing and repeating. It will remove the purple, but it will be a more gradual process. Good luck

Nik asks:
Iíve been dyeing my very dark brown hair black with box dye for approx 14 years - I have very pale skin and going darker makes my face glow and look healthier. In the last 6 years, however, my hair is going salt and pepper grey with re-growth visibly popping up every 2 weeks after I dye my hair. So, I end up waiting an extra two weeks before dyeing my hair again and Iím wondering if itís time to change my hair colour or incorporate a few dark grey streaks into my hair to stop it from washing out my face and making me look older. Iím also concerned that dyeing my hair black so often might be bad for my hair, but I really donít want to look so washed out and old! Any advice or suggestions please? Kind regards , Nik

There is a lot of history as you have been colouring your hair with box colour for some time. Box colour is very un-predictable . Therefore there is not one golden rule or answer to your desired result. In order to remove and or change your current black colour the hairdresser would have to use a bleach. As bleach is the only product to lift the black from you hair. A stand test would be a good idea to see how it lifts. To create a softer re- growth area adding different shades ( slightly lighter/and slightly darker combination) to your hair will soften the re-growth line and would help to blend your salt and pepper. Avoid a solid blanket of dark hair.

I think you need to change your thought process and colour plan based on how often you wish to colour your hair. If you want your colour to look more natural, multidimensional, great for blend grey hair this will help with a softer re-growth area, re-growth line. I would only recommend that you consult with a colour specialist. As they will know what to use and the path to create your final desired look. Keep in mind there is a lot of colour history that only a professional colourist can suggest ideas, etc. Keep in mind that as we mature, skin colour, grey hair Ė etc. formulations should change according to the natural hair and end desired result.
