Lorna asks:
I have had my hair coloured platinum blonde at the hairdresser twice within the last 6 weeks. She used a 30% lift. My roots come through very quickly and at £87 a time I just canít afford the maintenance. If I put a home dye of light ash blonde will it be ok? I am scared if it goes orange or green. I canít afford another trip to the hairdressers. Is there any brand or colour you could recommend ? Thanks so much

Hello Lorna, Iím not sure if you have had bleach or high lift tint; Iím am guessing bleach? If you put a lightest ash blonde on your roots it will probably be warmer than the result you currently have but be okay. Donít take the colour through to the ends though as they maybe porous and then you will get a very ash result on the ends. Just use blonding shampoo and conditioner to maintain, tone and blend! GOOD LUCK

Cheyenne asks:
My natural colour is a mousy blonde I recently went to a burgundy red colour and Iíve decided I want to go back to blonde. I stripped my hair I put toner in it multiple times and I dyed it with blonde dye 2 times; my hair is now blonde at my roots and tips but orange in the middle. I donít know what to do or how to get rid of it but before going and spending hundreds of dollars at a hairdresser I just want to see if you can suggest something cheaper thank you. Much appreciated

Hello Cheyenne, Wow you have done lots to your hair so please take care of it with the best shampoo and conditioner for coloured treated hair as well as a weekly mask to help keep it strong. The orange section you are struggling to remove is probably where you had most of the old colour build up hence why its harder to shift! You could try applying an hi lift ash blonde on the orange area. Apply to clean dry freshly shampooed hair without conditioner and process for an extra 10 minutes than suggested. That might lift it and deposit some ash tones that will even up your overall colour. If that doesnít work I think it will need bleach through it and better a salon do that really. Good luck

Alrika asks:
I have very thin straight hair and would love a fuller, thicker hair look, but cannot seem get my hair any thicker, no matter what i try. Is there any specific thing i should be doing to get thicker hair? Also, i love the short wavy hair look, but i struggle in getting the waves to look right and to stay, should use a different method for the waves, or should I just give in and grow my hair longer.

When trying to achieve thicker hair there are various ways of enhancing the look of hair. The most common complaint amongst women with fine hair is that their style lacks body and bounce. For this problem, it is recommended to look for volumizing shampoos, conditioners and styling products containing plant proteins, such as quinoa and also hydrolysed keratin, which helps to give bulk to individual strands of hair. People with thin hair have more oil glands on their scalp which means it gets weighed down easily and appears flat. Philip Kingsley Tricho Pro is recommended as it helps to protect the hair Ė reducing breakage by hair being easier to comb. Damage and breakage can thin the appearance of the mid-lengths and ends. For a voluminous foundation style, use of a lightweight body building shampoo such as Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo is advised followed by Philip Kingsley Body Building Conditioner, to smooth the cuticle and help prevent flyaways. When applying conditioner, apply from mid-length to ends to avoid limp and lacklustre roots. After washing your hair, the PK Tricho pro thickening protein spray (part of the Philip Kingsley Trichotherapy Range) can be applied from mid lengths to ends. Trichotherapy contains stimulating anti-androgenic scalp drops that help to encourage healthy hair growth from the follicle - a thickening, strengthening protein spray that adds immediate body and helps to improve the integrity of strands over time. When styling hair it is important to remember that fine hair is more fragile, so use of a thickening heat protective spray such as PK Perfecting Spray is essential when applying heat. PK Prep Plumping Cream is also available for thickening hair, this can be used to add bulk to strands of hair. Hair trimming is feared by some because of loss of length but hair trimming helps to create the appearance of thicker hair whilst maintaining healthy hair by eliminating split ends.
