Cassidy asks:
1. What type of haircut would you recommend for me? My hair is currently shoulder length. I am looking for something that I can part on either side of my head, and ideally still pull up into a ponytail.
2. How do I get my curls to "bounce back" on the top layer of my hair/not look stretched out?
3. My current wash and style routine is a very delicate process that usually requires my diffusing my hair, which takes a lot of time. Is there a shorter regimen that I should follow (I am a college student with little time in the morning)?
4. Are there any products within a college studentís budget that are go-toís/must-haveís for people with curly hair? Any other suggestions and/or guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance! Best, Cassidy

Hello Cassidy Letís tackle you questions one at a time:

1. What type of haircut would you recommend for me?
I think with Curly hair a bob shape, of any length works perfectly, slightly inverted is good as well. This way you can switch the parting and still tie it all back or just the top if you opt for a short version. ( see some images above) using a wand or heated rollers can help create softer curls too when you feel like a change. ...More >

2. How do I get my curls to "bounce back" on the top layer of my hair/not look stretched out?
Having long layers through the top sections so losing a bit of the old over straightened hair will really help for starters.

3. My current wash and style routine is a very delicate process that usually requires my diffusing my hair, which takes a lot of time. Is there a shorter regimen that I should follow (I am a college student with little time in the morning)?
I would suggest that you squeeze as much water out of your hair with a towel before combing through and leaving to dry naturally with product in or diffusing, donít shampoo everyday use a water spray bottle with conditioner added to spray on day old hair to revitalize your curls and dry shampoo at the roots if required.

4. Are there any products within a college studentís budget that are go-toís/must-haveís for people with curly hair?
I think as long as you are using moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, a weekly moisture mask and you comb through the conditioner or mask before rinsing. As far as styling your custard seems to work well for you so I would continue with that, but as you dry (diffuse) or leave your hair to dry naturally, put your fingers into the root area and shake it out, this will stop the product drying so hard and so flat to your head. It will aslo prevent the triangle affect that you currently experience. I really hope this helps you!





Dee asks:
How can I remove green from blonde hairlights? Iíve had some success with home remedy but not full removal, and it looks worse as the highlights look pale green so show against my overall brown tone. I am unsure whether it is my water supply with copper and or other heavy metals that have discoloured the highlights or if it was the Manic Panic violet toner I used with Olaplex after doing bleach highlights. Could be a combination. So I have been rinsing my hair in heated bottled water post home remedies. And I have purchased a shower head with vit C and beads to remove heavy metals, but this will take a day or two to arrive. From online research it looks as if I left the manic panic violet toner on mixed with Olaplex Plus far too long. I did this because post highlights my highlights had a copper tinge. I washed my hair afterwards, shampooing a couple of times with a highlights shampoo and conditioner. At first after drying my hair post highlighting and condition with violet manic panic toner it looked fabulous: my usual light brown with light blonde highlights as desired. But after going for a walk in the sun within a few hours it had developed a green tinge and this morning the highlights seemed more green. I have tried to remove the green with natural remedies washing my hair a few times post applications of ketchup, then baking soda and lemon. After it didnít seem to budge x3 shampoos later, so then I tried pure vitamin C powder and cling film. The latter did show quite a bit of green on the clingfilm but my hair still looks green, just a lighter tone, I guess because the hair is blonde underneath and some of the green has removed. I could go to a hairdresser but most are closed on Mondays and I am keen to try and fix it myself if the colour removal - such as Louise Galvin Colour Removal would work. I have some in the cupboard but wanted to try a softer approach first. Hence I need to check if thereís anything in the LG Colour Removal that could cause yet another reaction / undesired effect? I am wary of going to a hairdresser as they might try to do a bleach wash. Any advice here about what treatment I should be looking for from a hairdresser would be very welcome. I havenít always had good experiences with salons hence keeping trusty LG Colour removal in the cupboard! For highlights I used Daniel Field Natural Lights which I have used before without issue. This time I did add Olaplex to the mix as I thought this would lessen the bleach damage. I did the highlights on Friday and tried to wash out the green on Sunday as was too busy Saturday. Probably should have done it Saturday if leaving it longer has seen the green set in? Please let me know what you think I should try next. Budget is no problem to fix this.Many thanks in advance.

Hello Dee, This may sound totally bonkers but please try shampooing your hair with high detergent shampoo or washing up liquid, leave on the hair for 5 Ė 15 mins before rinsing. The foam from the high detergent will hopefully be discoloured as it should be removing the green residue. Rinse your hair in warm water and repeat, really massage the detergent into the affected areas, leave again for 5 Ė 15 mins before rinsing. This should truly resolve the issue, and it works in a similar way to clarifying shampoo but can make the hair feel brittle so please use a treatment mask as well as conditioner. This is a really common problem and is probably a combination of all the mentioned in your email, I have my fingers crossed for you. Good luck







RosaLevi asks:
Iíve being dyeing my ash light brown hair with black-blue permanent box dye for the last 3 years. I know...it really suits me though, because Iím pale with cool undertones. But Iím over it. I want my natural hair colour back. My hair is finally long (30 inches) and I donít want to bleach it, so Iíve been trying to let the dye fade on its own. In order to speed the process, Iíve been washing my hair with dandruff shampoos, using vitamin C, using heat, and basically everything you ought not to do if you wish to preserve your colour. So now, the top 1/3 of my hair is this reddish brown colour that is completely deep red in the sunlight, but of course the bottom part is pitch black. On top of that, my roots and baby hair seem almost blonde in contrast. Should I use a good colour remover? If I do that, will my hair turn orange? Will that continue to be a reverse ombre orange? Lighter on the top? And of course: will I be able to cover that orange with a 5.0 or 6.0 light brown, ash brown, dark ash blonde dye? Iím looking for advice in general, so Iím open to the suggestions of a professional. P.S. Even though I have fine hair, the condition I think is great. Iíve never bleached it and rarely use heat. What do you think?

Hi RosaLevi, I suggest you use a colour remover on the dark ends, then you need to evaluate the whole look and probably use a 6.0 all over as a semi to even the overall colour result. Use a 6.1 if you want to neutralize the warm tones. Good luck
