Ana asks:
Hello, I have dark brown hair natural and dyed because of my grey. I wanted to get a nice dark grey look, so I bleached my hair and it got orange. I dyed it with Wella dark intense ash blonde and volume 30, and it still went orange. So when my roots grew a little, I tried re-dying again with same colour and added almost 4 capfuls of cooling violet 050. It still went orange. I now want to go back dark and I donít want to damage my hair any more, but I still want the ash tones. I was thinking to colour with volume 10 and mix the colours 1 part 5AA light brown intense ash and 1/2 a bottle of cooling violet. My question is, how light would the cooling violet make the colour and should I use dark ash brown instead to get the light, because I know the volume 10 will leave the hair colour dark. Any advice on how these colours would mix? And what would be the best way? Iíve added a picture for you to see my natural hair and the insert where my face is a model with the hair colour I want similar and darker is fine with me. Thank you for your help and time.

Best Regards,

Hi Anna

Your suggested formula of 10 vol with equal parts 5AA light brown intense ash will work, the addition of cooling violet with neutralize additional warmth but wonít alter the depth of the colour. I suggest apply to clean dry hair, if you donít have the cool look you require then use violet conditioner to rid of the unwanted tones and maintain the desired cool result.

Grace asks:
I previously had light grey/blue ish hair but had to dye back brown to give my hair a break but now the brown is far to dark. What can I do to lighten it?

Hi Grace

I think the best think to do is use deep cleansing shampoo leave it on for 15 mins rinse and repeat. This will remove the residue and it will immediately look lighter. The other options are to have the colour stripped out a shade or 2 or have some fine highlights to give an overall lighter look? ...More >

Good luck

Lynda asks:
I have my hair coloured to a lovely ash blonde shade but within a fortnight it goes lighter and lighter - so annoying - I then use purple rinse on it - which helps - I am 63 years old and presume my real hair is going grey is this the reason it lightens please? Thanks

Hi Lynda

The tone of the colour always fades first as it is deposited last on the hair. Using a silver conditioner on a regular basis will help control the fade and you can also try processing the colour a little longer as well as reducing the amount of developer slightly when you mix the formula. Both of these steps should increase the tonal deposit of the colour. ...More >

Good luck x
