Rebecca asks:
I have been told to tone my hair with a 7.1 & a 10 vol 3% creme peroxide, however, this has come up a lot darker then my roots and I think I am supposed to use an 8.1. If I put an 8.1 with the the 10 vol over the 7.1 will my hair go orange?

Hi Rebecca, I would shampoo your hair with a high detergent shampoo a few times leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing. This will lift out as much of the 7.1 as possible as the 8.1 wonít be able to lift through the old colour and 10 vol 3% canít lift only deposit. Once you have shampooed as much of the 7.1 out as possible I would apply a 9.1 with 10 vol and this way it wonít make the hair darker at all but will cool the natural tone down. Good luck





Maia asks:
Hi, I recently went into a salon for a spiral perm (looking for the traditional type of spiral perm NOT a bodywave, or beachwave type thing). My hair was set into foam bendy curlers and then the perming solution was tipped over my hair (As I was resting above a sink), this was left on for 20 minutes, then two other solutions were put on my hair. Once the processing was finished she took it out the curlers and brushed it vigerously with one of those detangling brushes and blow-dried it, it was looking really really straight at this point which had me worried, she then put mousse and some other products on it and curled it with a curling wand and backcombed sections... I thought this was really odd but the after effect was exactly what I wanted and went home pleased. I waited four days before washing it, I barely touched it, didnít pull the curls and slept on a silk pillowcase, i didnít put my hair up or so anything to it at all. Now I have washed it and my hair is slightly wavy, as if I had slept in a plait, certainly NOT the spiral perm I was after... is this normal?

Hello Maia, The bit that sounds odd is the need to use a curling wand after the perm! After the 20 minutes processing time of the first lotion was your hair rinsed for about 5 to 10 mins before the next lotion was applied? I suggest you try shampooing and conditioning your hair, applying mousse or a curling lotion, comb through with a wide tooth comb Ė leave for 30 minutes to start drying naturally whilst softly scrunching with your hands every now and then. If you donít see any real curl formation, trying using a diffuser on your hairdryer Ė medium heat medium or slow speed with your head upside down. Let your hair sit in the diffuser until its dry, donít touch or move it around, once dry all over if you donít have curls I suggest you go to the salon and explain everything you have done. And that you are disappointed and would like it redone.







Alexis asks:
Iíve had an ombre hair disaster. I used to have long dark hair and was after an ombre effect on the ends. I had balayage highlights done last week but didnít want highlights all over so decided to go elsewhere to have it írectifiedí. The end result is unfortunately awful. Instead of dying the whole top dark brown, they just painted over the highlighted sections and it doesnít match my colour so is very patchy. The ombre itself is not well integrated and is an unflattering ash colour, which also comes up quite high. With this much hair there is no hiding it. Iíve already spent a huge amount of money so canít justify another salon trip. If I use a DIY dye will this work or will the bleached ends create a problem? What are my options? Thanks in advance!

Hi Alexis, The options you have are a little bit limited but I think the best one is to use a semi permanent colour all over. If you choose something a colour of shades lighter than your natural colour with a warm tone of colour that you like, so gold, copper or red. I would suggest you buy 2 boxes of colour and apply all over to dry hair. This should totally tone and blend and give you a more subtle but multi tonal effect. The disadvantage is that it will shampoo out but you can use colour conditioner to help prevent the fade or re apply every month. I donít suggest you using a permanent colour on long thick hair as it will be too hard for you to get an even result. Good luck
