Della asks:
My daughter pestered me to perm her hair so I bought a do it yourself one at home with rods and the Schwarzkopf red box as she had coloured her hair in the past. I was quite confident at putting it all on and every thing was going okay until I dried it using a diffuser in the hair dryer. Then this morning it looks shaggy frizzy and feels quite dry. What can I do to help this? Iím in desperate need of help as she is an anxious teenager at the best of times and if her hair is a mess she wonít want to be humiliated at school. Thanks for any advice.

Hi Della, It sounds like the hair is desperate for moisture, use a moisture shampoo, conditioner and mask. Leave the mask on the hair for 20 minutes covered with a shower cap, comb through before rinsing and applying conditioner. Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes, comb through and rinse. Then apply a small amount of argan style oil to the mid lengths and ends of the hair, comb through before using the hairdryer and diffuser on medium heat and speed. Be careful not to over dry. Good luck

Melissa asks:
My hair looks really dry and something that I canít control. I canít wear my hair up in a bun anymore, because when I take it down and brush it, my hair is falling out. I donít know what else to do so Iíve decided to leave it down but my hair looks like crap when itís down and itís not all the same colour anymore. My hair is naturally brown but I dyed it so much that I finally decided no more dyeing. Please help me!

Hi Melissa Can I suggest you invest in some moisture shampoo, conditioner and treatment mask. Use the mask every time you shampoo for a month, leaving on for 20 minutes before combing through, rinsing then apply conditioner. That way you will give your hair a massive moisture boost and it sounds like it needs it. Take a look at your diet making sure it has plenty of vitamin B, D and E and if youíre concerned take a supplement for hair for a few months. Have a little trim and Iím absolutely sure that in less than 6 weeks your hair will be soft, shiny and manageable again. Good luck

Erin asks:
My hair colouring history is long and extensive, but most recently I visited the salon for champagne blonde highlights, along with teal and purple added mid shaft and to my hair ends. The teal is now almost all gone, except for a few faded areas, and the purple is faded but holding on more. My roots are now coming in, my natural hair being a í7í dark blonde/ash brown with natural blonde and copper highlights
Unfortunately times are tough and going back to the salon is not in my budget. I am hoping I can successfully use a box colour. I am interested in doing a red for fall, or even a rose brown. I donít know if this is possible with my current hair, or if there is a colour you could recommend that will cover my hair? I am fair skinned, blue eyed, with rosy cheeks and a slight yellow undertone. Please help! Thank you!

We would suggest that you start by using a clarifying shampoo, to help to further strip away some of the unwanted teal colour. A natural way to help remove colour is to mix a little baking soda with your shampoo Ė failing that you can try a specialist colour remover, suitable for at-home use. Once you have stripped away all of the remaining teal colour, you can re-colour the hair. While there is a lot going on with your hair right now, you have two things working in your favour. Firstly, you wish to go darker, rather than lighter, and secondly you want to add plenty of warmth to the hair with either a rose brown or red shade; both of these are easier to achieve at home than going lighter or cooler in colour.

Rose brown would be a good option considering your natural light brown roots are starting to come through and you already have the purple undertone through the mid lengths and ends. Look for a copper brown box colour, one with rich and rosy warm chocolate undertones. Section your hair and apply dye to the roots first, with only a very short exposure on the middle and ends, as these sections will absorb the colour faster. Luckily, this type of colour doesnít rely on the hair being bleached first, so is easier to achieve at home, plus this type of colour actually conditions your hair, rather than stripping it of moisture, so your hair should be left looking glossy and gorgeous.
