Manoella asks:
Hi im Manoella from brazil. I had a question regarding my hair, I am a natural very dark blonde, I have highlights throughout my hair, some parts being very light, almost white and some are a bit orangy, I also have some old hair dye from like a year ago in there. I wanted to make my hair lighter without ruining it. Everytime i seem to get highlights I feel like they are never the bright blonde that i want and it just ruins the hair. I was wondering if there are any natural ways to lighten it up without making it brassy. I have a brass phobia! The orange parts of my hair are making me go crazy!! If it were to get brassy I woukd rather just not do anything to it but I am dying to get my hair blonder though!! Thanks a lo

Hello Manoella

There is the old fashioned method of lightening hair with lemon juice in the sunshine, but I would suggest you have more highlights, use a great moisturisng masque to really condition the hair and then neutralsie the brassy tones you dislike with a violet shampoo and conditioner. once you have achieved the lightness you desire itís much easier to maintain and the hair gets lighter the more its exposed in the environment. ...More >

Good luck

Tania asks:
Hello. I am naturally very pale skinned with hazel eyes and brown hair that has a slight red hue, probably something to do with my Celtic roots! As Iím getting older this really doesnít suit me anymore. However my rather expensive salon canít get my hair to stay any sort of ashy colour... brown or blonde. It just warms up after a couple of weeks despite using toners. Please help, Iím at my witís end! Thank you

Hi Tania

I have the same issue, it becomes easier as we go grey, thatís something to look forward too!!! My suggestion is ask the stylist to work on the natural base of your hair, use double the amount of ash than normal in the formula, reduce the developer quantity (this makes the formula thicker and so leaves a stronger deposit) and process for 10 mins longer than usual. This normally does work, make sure you are using a gentle professional colour safe shampoo and perhaps an ash conditioner at home as well as this way you can control unwanted warm tones as you like? ...More >

There are colour formulas especially for covering resistant grey hair and in my experience these ash formula are great at not just covering grey but adding the extra tonal deposit we need. They are commonly called 00 or NN.

I hope this helps

Emma asks:
Hi I have had permanent purple hair dye for about 18 months and re-dyed with the same colour about every 2-3 months until 5 months ago but now I would like to get the purple out of my hair and go back to my natural hair colour is there anything I can do to remove the purple or do I just need to wait for it to grow out?

Hi Emma and happy new year to you.

You donít say what colour you are naturally so I suggest a couple of options. ...More >

Use a clarifying shampoo or high detergent content shampoo on the purple hair leave a few minutes and rinse and repeat a few time this should remove some of the purple. It will make your hair feel horrible but that can be resolved with treatment masks and conditioner after the whole colour process is complete not before as it will possibly prevent a good even result.

You can then apply a semi permanent colour to tone and blend the remaining purple away and blend with your natural colour, you may not even need to apply near the root area just the ends and then 10 mins before the processing time is up work it through the whole of your hair. This will work best if you are trying to get back to a dark blonde colour or lighter. Just choose a warm based blonde as this will neutralize the remaining purple tones.

I hope this makes some sense and good luck?
