Iíve never dyed my own hair before. I have long gold blonde hair with lots of natural highlights. Iím going to sound like an idiot here but if I were to bleach my hair a slightly lighter colour, would the highlights be maintained? i.e. does it bleach everything the same amount or bleach everything till itís just one shade?

Hi Lindsay, If you were to bleach your hair all over (I do not recommend) you will lose your natural highlights. If you wanted some very natural but very light additional highlights you want to ask a hairdresser for very fine bleach baby lights. If you prefer something even more subtle with less commitment ask a hairdresser for high lift tint highlights, they will be less obvious when growing out, tone and blend more easily with your natural colour and lights too. The other option is to go lighter all over with high lift tint but I really wouldnít as once committed itís hard to go back.
Good luck and how about trying to book a free colour consultation at a salon near you?

Hi, I got a relaxer about a week ago and I am very concerned about the state of my hair. I went to a professional that got incredible reviews. He relaxed my hair, checked in with me to see if it was burning and it didnít even burn, I think the highest number out of 10 that I said was a 4. The relaxer was finished and it looked beautiful and it still does. However, a few days later I noticed I have crusted scabs on the back of my head, which I find weird because it didnít burn that bad. My biggest issue is that on certain parts of my head (mainly the perimeter of my head and my roots) I feel peach fuzz like hairs, under my hair. Its like stubbly vellus hair and itís really concerning especially since the process seemed great and the guy that did it is supposed to be amazing! I also have a very itchy scalp and it kills! Iím not sure if i should be concerned or if this is serious? The hair itself looks amazing like itís beautiful but these "symptoms" are really stressing me out and if you have any advice/answers that would be great! Thank you!

Hi Jasmine, Iím so pleased you love your hair, and I suggest you use a very mild shampoo and maybe a scalp mask with aloe vera in it and see if you scalp calms down. It does sound like you may have had a reaction of sorts in the very sensitive areas of your head and experienced some breakage. I think perhaps if within a week if it hasnít calmed down pop to your GP just to check your scalp and that the skin isnít broken. Also go back to the salon and get the stylist opinion, as you can make sure further precautions can be taken if you have the service again.
Thanks and really good luck

I went to a hair salon, where they gave me blonde highlights that they then toned white. After three weeks, in spite of using a silver shampoo, the white colour was gone. I tried Wella T18 and Manic Panic Virgin Snow, but both just turned my highlights grey with a purplish hue and the rest of my hair more golden. What did I do wrong? I need a toner, that can turn my highlights white and cool down the strands of my hair, that are unbleached and golden. Any recommendations?
|Answered By: |
Hi Christine, I think you may need to use a clarifying shampoo, that way the residue that has discoloured the white. A violet shampoo is needed to neutralize the unwanted warm tones. You are in a bit of a catch 22, as each time you clarify the hair you will remove the toner, but thatís what keeps the hair bright. Perhaps ask your stylist to do some lighter highlights through the warmer areas and then the colour should be more uniform.
Hope this helps!
