Sharon asks:
I had my hair done today and oh gosh it was terrible. Iím feeling so incredibly self conscious and awful about myself at the moment due to a range of factors, but mainly the fact Iím looking so pale, weak and run down (donít worry, if anything I have gained weight). I just look sad. SO, last weekend I wanted to die my hair prior to mama bear coming but because this city is so God-damn expensive and Iím poor as **** I went to a home hairdresser. She dyed my roots exactly as above (that ash brown Iím after) then decided to have a temporary seizure and dye my roots a brown/purple! It was SO violet and Barney-looking. I felt self-conscious all week at work (people seemed to love the "alternative" look but the most important person - me- hated it and it just wasnít me at all. Iím boring and conservative, not even slightly worthy of purple hair). SOO today mum wanted to give me a "good bye" present and after being unwell all week we drove to a trendy hairdresser in the most expensive part of Canberra. I now have the one shade - black! I look so incredibly gothic. Worst of all, mum paid a fortune; I just really need my luck to change atm. Iím aware all these things are highly superficial and have a solution but I canít keep having reasons to hate myself because my cup is empty. Please help! How would you resolve super dark / semi violet all over hair?

Oh Sharon, You mail made me feel so sad for you and want to give you a hug, new hairdo as well as a confidence boosting chat! So with your hair and no money the best I can suggest is go to some local salons asking if they need any models for decolouring or lightening, this way you maybe able to have an apprentice, very well supervised sort your hair free of charge or very reasonably priced. Alternatively you could de colour yourself with one of the number of decolourants available on the high street. The de colorant should leave you at a very warm/ goldy brown I would then advise you have a new hair cut if you havenít already and tone your hair with colour conditioner. Itís very inexpensive and gives you complete control. Try your best to keep your hair in good condition and make sure you comb the conditioner through before rinsing. As far as a confidence boost, you are worthy of being Purple or any colour on the planet that you want, please try and believe it. See if you can have a make up make over and ask a close friend to send you a message every day to make you feel better about yourself. I practice being thankful and grateful every day for the things I do have, so even the fact you have a job, a Mama around, and have hair just simple things really do help and I suggest you write then down every night at bedtime. Also say as many nice things to people as possible because that will help you feel better about yourself, trust me it really will. Please try and be kind to yourself you are worth it. Lots of love and luck xx





Caroline asks:
Hi, around 6 months ago I got my hair bleached because it is darkening as I get older, since then my hair has been thinner and more dry, easily tangled and very frizzy. I like the colour but my roots have grown back in and I want to dye it back to blonde. Is there any way I can have my hair light blonde and not have it wrecked like it becomes when I bleach it? Also is there anything I can to to stop the friz and the dryness? Iíve tried a few different brands of leave in conditioner but because Iím a teenager I have to shampoo my hair quite regularly which probably only makes the ends even more dry. Is there anything else I can try that will make my hair healthier? Thank you very much.

Hi Caroline, May I suggest you have some high lift tint blondes as they are kinder to the hair and can give you a more natural multi tonal effect? Make sure you are using a blonding shampoo as well a very moisturising one and regular treatment masks as this will really help condition, detangle and smooth your hair, always comb the conditioner through before rinsing. Good luck







Sayine asks:
Iím 24 years girl. My hair texture is dry and rough therefore I canít do any hair style for my hair. It gets rough within few hours after combing. So Iím planning to relax my hair. Is is good? Is there any side effects? What should I consider before relaxing?

Hello Sayine, Have you tried a professional moisturising shampoo, conditioner and mask? They really do help moisturize the hair and that means it will be calmer and softer so easier to manage. Add a little almond oil to you scalp and sleep over night with it in and then shampoo out. When you use the mask cover you hair with a shower cap so then some heat from your scalp will help make the mask more effective. You will be incredibly surprised and excited at how different your hair will be, from having a great strict hair care routine. Also take a supplement for your skin, hair and nails as you may lack some essential oils that your hair needs. Try this for 6 Ė 8 weeks before relaxing your hair because relaxing does work but you still have to have a maintenance routine to look after the hair. Good luck
