Sophie asks:
Hello, I have black hair and have been using temporary black colour to cover my grey for years but now feel black is no longer the colour for me because 1) new growth is very obvious and 2) my skin tone has changed and I feel the black is now too stark.I have long hair that grows fast.
My grey is everywhere now so waiting for it to grow out to my shoulders is not an option. I really need to make a change.
Is there anyway I can change my whole hair colour? Ideally I would try a "brown" colour (suited to my skin colour)plus have another colour high lighted and allow my grey to grow through. Itís now causing me stress so will consider anything. Look forward to hearing from you.

Sophie, I would suggest you have a full head of highlights to break up the black, then select something like dark natural blonde or lightest natural brown normally round a level 6. Try the new colour as a semi permanent which will tone and blend your root regrowth as well tone the highlights. You should then be able to continue with the level 6 as a semi unless you want to cover the grey. Good luck





Brittney asks:
Why wonít pastels (fashion colours) take in my hair? I am currently a level 9 bleached blonde. I have tried semi-permanent and demi-permanent professional colour and nothing seems to hold to my hair. I want to go either a pastel peach or a light lavender, but Iím not sure what product and ratio to use because nothing had worked thus far.

Hi Brittney, Sometimes a build up of styling products, minerals and old colour can prevent colour from taking properly and lasting. I suggest you use a deep cleanse shampoo, leave on for 5 minutes, rinse and repeat. Apply the colour of choice to clean dry hair and make sure its thoroughly saturated. Process for 10 minutes longer than suggested. Rinse and shampoo with a colour safe shampoo and you should be fine. Make sure moving forward you always use colour safe shampoo and try a colour conditioner as that will help maintain the colour. Good luck







Hanna asks:
Hi, Two months ago I dyed my natural honey blonde hair to a semi-permanent chocolate brown colour. I was not content with how it looked on me, so I decided to use the Colour B4 once, followed by a permanent platinum blonde (not my best idea, since it just got dark again) and yet another Colour B4 treatment. After that I tried to dye it with a light ashy blonde, to remove the brassiness after my second treatment with the Colour B4, and the brasiness disappeared, but it was still pretty dark. Then I used the Colour B4 for the third and last time, now achieving much lighter hair, but with brassiness. I am now using the silver shampoo from Fudge and have got rid of some of the brassiness, but not everything. I would like to return to something similar to what I used to have, but I am not sure on how to get it. Do you have any tips on what I should do? Kind regards, Hanna

Hi Hanna, I would suggest firstly that you use a deep clarifying shampoo to remove the chemical, colour residue and build up. Rinse and repeat this a couple of times. I would then try using a colour 2 shades lighter than your desired result with just 10 volume /3% developer with an ash base. Apply to clean dry hair and add 10 minutes to the processing time. Make sure you use a treatment mask weekly to maintain the condition of your hair. Good luck
