Stefanie asks:
Hello, I have thick, middle to long dark brown hair. I never use heat on my hair, I shampoo it 1-2 times a week and condition it. My hair tends to be dry so I donít wash it more than that unless I have a lot of appointments. When I air dry my hair it always is slightly wavy but on two occasions due to the humidity I had wild curlyish hair (very specific curls). The curls started from the roots and became tighter curls to towards the bottom. They were not to voluminous which I liked and seemed wild. I have never felt that confident and good about myself, so I really want to find out how to make my hair look like that daily! I tried to copy two pictures into here, but unfortunately it didnít work. They are from a model that has exactly the kind of curls I am talking about. If there is a way for me to send the pictures that would be amazing! Thank you so much in advance and sorry for my English!

Hi Stefanie, Iím afraid I donít know how you can attach the pictures but the best thing I can suggest for defining natural curls is always shampoo and condition with moisturising shampoo and conditioner. Always comb the conditioner through before rinsing. Use a cream based product called something like curl cream or curl activator and apply to the middle, lengths and ends of your hair when wet. Comb through so as to evenly distribute the product and then if you can use a diffuser on a hair dryer just to take 50% of the water out. Then leave to dry naturally. Hair has memory and needs to be reminded that it used to curl once you have to help it remember. As your hair is drying twist sections or scrunch then in your hand this will help your hair retain the natural shape. It may take a month or too but it will happen. Perhaps a trim and some long layers would help?
Good luck





Maria asks:
Hello, I have naturally very black curly hair and Iím wanting to dye it a little bit lighter for the summer, so I was thinking maybe a dark brown nothing to drastic. I want to dye it at home because I donít want to go to a salon to dye it. I want a dark ashy brown colour and want to stay away from my hair turning out brown with a reddish tone. Months ago I had purchased a blonde hair dye to dye my black hair but unfortunately nothing happened. What type of dye should I be buying for my hair to actually turn the ashy dark brown colour I want. Thank you!

Hi Maria, Unfortunately itís not that simple. Artificial colour wonít lift artificial colour, so you need to use a decolorant or have a bleach bath. These will be able to lift the black enough so that you can then use a semi brown of your choice and maintain with a colour conditioner.
Hope this is helpful







Sara asks:
My hair is naturally light brown. Over the course of 4 years, I have both bleached it, and dyed it. The colour of my hair right now is black, but I also have significant brown roots. This week I decided to use íColour Oops Developlus Colour Oops Colour Removerí to completely remove the black hair dye out of my hair, but it didnít quite work. So my question is, what should I do from this point on? I have an event coming up in two weeks, and I really want to refresh my hair. Iím interested in silver/grey/ashy highlights, or something else to lighten and liven up my hair. Please help! Thank you!!

Hi Sara, You probably have a warm brownish colour, so the options are Ė A dark blonde or light brown semi all over to even up the overall look, de- colour again so you get a lighter base and then use a lighter maybe brighter semi with a red undertone. Or have a full head of highlights to tone and blend? Lots of fun options, good luck.
