Hi, I usually dye my hair a dark brown (itís mousy naturally.... with a few grey ones!), but last summer it went a really nice light brown/ dark blonde in the sun. I have tried several different dyes to keep it dark/medium blonde, but it started to get a ginger tint to it. I put a dye stripper on it a couple of days ago, itís now a nice blonde colour, but still looks a little ginger in certain light...... I really want to keep it the same shade of medium blonde, but without the ginger tinge. Should I put another medium blonde dye on it? Will it work? Or is there something else I need to do? Unfortunately Iím on a budget, so can go out and spend £20 on each of about 3/4 products, £200 in a salon. If you could help solve my problem I would really appreciate it..... Iíve got a big weekend this week and donít want to spend it paranoid about being ginger.... not that there is anything wrong with red hair, just doesnít suit me Thank you, hope to hear something from you soon

i Micquelle, The reason you get what you call the ginger tinge is because your natural underlying tone in your hair will be orange. Underlying tone is like undercoat for paint it is the supporting colour and gives the tone. So if you donít want the tone (ginger) and you are going to do it yourself you must use a medium ash blonde- the ash tone is blue/green and will neutralize the orange. Donít take the colour all the way through your hair only use it on the roots and orange/ginger areas. You can refresh the mid lengths and ends with the medium blonde when needed but use a lower volume of developer apply to wet hair. I really hope this makes sense?

I have a friend whoís hair is yellow-ey with some orange in it. She wants to go beige, greyish and I donít really want to bleach it again. Is there a product you know that would work to get her lightened well, and the tone she wants? I only have a Sallyís by me. Itís not great, I know, but itís what Iíve got haha!

Hi Celena, I think you would be able to get away with doing a semi of a graphite colour, this will cool the yellow down, make the orange more beige looking as beige is 2 parts ash and one part warm, so will cool it but not totally. It should also give that lovely greyish colour that is so on trend at the moment. Violet shampoo and conditioner will really help her maintain her colour result too and I am sure you will be able to get all you need from Sally. Thanks

Hi, I want to get my hair coloured soon. My natural hair colour is a dark brown. However, I got a balayage about a year ago. My ends were a caramel golden colour. I want to get it even lighter now. I was aiming for an ash blonde colour. I will also get most of my ends cut off, because I would like to get a lob. I am just very unsure about the colour. Because my hair will be quite short, I feel like it might look weird because of the contrast between my dark roots and the light ends. Should I aim for a darker colour in my ends? Also, when the roots grow out, will I have to colour them again? Because thatís what I was hoping to avoid with balayage. I wouldnít want to go the hairdressers more than twice a year. Is that going to be a problem or can I, if I want to, just let the colour grow out, without it looking weird? Thank you in advance!

Hi Tessa, It sounds to me that you should try Babylights; they are super soft highlights that delicately soften the roots your solid-natural or colored hair. Babylights are lots of ultra fine (just a few strands)foil highlights placed around the face and parting so give a really beautiful effect and it works really well on all lengths of hair but I think particularly well on a LOB. Donít colour you natural hair and then there is so much less commitment for you and if you have the light ash blond and change your mind you can change it up with colour conditioners. These will give you versatility and fun options and are all semi permanent. Enjoy
