|Erin asks: |
I have highlighted hair and Iíve had it for 5 years. My hair is healthy but itís thin and flat and doesnít do much. Iíve been wanting to get a wave perm to give it some body and make it look nice, but a salon near me wonít do it without me signing a waiver because they said it could break all my hair thatís been highlighted. I havenít highlighted my hair in over a year, so my hair is kind of ombrť right now. Like I said, I have healthy hair. Is it okay to perm it?

Hi Erin, I canít advise about a perm without doing a strand test Ė this means a small amount of your hair would be cut and chemical would be applied. It would then be stretched to see how easily it broke. Or they may put the hair sample in perm solution to see how it copes. I would ask them if they do such tests because depending on that you may be happy to sign a waiver.

I have naturally dark blonde thick, long hair. Around 2 years ago I began using John Freida go blonder controlled lightening spray that I didnít realise was damaging my hair until I went to the hairdresser and had a test on my hair to see if it could handle the bleach. The hair was too damaged and they told me to stop using the spray and come back in 6 months, I did this and during that time I used a bunch of hair repairing products so I could definitely have my hair dyed the pastel pink I wanted. After the time had passed they did another test and said I would have to come back again later, now I havenít used the spray in over a year and their current advise is to fully grow out my hair before I can bleach it. I am willing to cut my long hair short in order to be able to bleach it, however it is extremely difficult to tell the difference between my natural hair and the hair that has been treated and damaged cause theyíre a similar colour. Obviously I canít have it cut ridiculously short but I have no idea how much my hair has grown. Any advise on how to tell and if I could get I dyed ?

Hi Lucy, Have you thought about having some highlights (with bleach) that way much less commitment and damage? You can then apply the pastel pink you want and it will be true on the highlights but a slightly darker pink on the natural hair. I think you will love it, you must keep up a good hair care regime and get a decent trim but I think you should go for it.
|Lindsay asks: |
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?
|Answered By: |
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?
