Valerie asks:
Recently I used Splat midnight hair dye at home without bleaching my naturally medium brown hair and I liked the result, but was immediately told by someone after that Splat is super hard to get out. Donít know if that is something Iíll want to do in the future, but is it true? Is there a way to go about removing the dye easily?

Hi Valerie
Iím not an expert on that brand, but as itís just one colour (not a 2 part colour that has to be mixed together)​ and itís been applied to medium brown hair, then it is likely to fade from your hair completely.
The length of time it will last will depend on your condition, the healthier your hair is the longer it is likely to last, but that will also depend on how often you shampoo and the shampoo you use. I would always advise colour saver shampoos bought from a salon, they may cost a bit more, but the investment is worth it both in terms of colour longevity and health of hair. The advice you had may be more relevant with pre-lightened hair where the larger blue pigment can be difficult to remove due to the porosity of the hair, even though it can lose its intensity quite quickly.​

Tammie asks:
Iím 45 and have been blonde for years. I want a change, I have long very thick hair so itís always costly to go to my salon regularly. I am going on vacation in 3 weeks and want a change; would even go short. Hubby of 20 years says go back to brown my natural colour. Please help. Are there any apps or anything out there to help me decide?

Wow Tammie
How exciting, I am not aware of any apps available Iím afraid, but I would suggest perhaps applying a colour a few shades darker than what you currently are, have you hair cut a few inches and perhaps add a fringe. See how you get on and then you have the options of layers as well as controlling the colour with colour shampoo and conditioners before going any darker. Enjoy your vacation.

Magdalene asks:
I tried doing highlights for my black hair but did not like the way it came out. So went back for global hair colour (deep purple), to get back a black shade. This too was a failure because the hair salon did not do it well and my hair turned light brown. They did a black colour over it. Now my hair is black, but its changing after every wash, turning brown. How long will that brown stay? Will I get back my true hair colour?

Hi Magdalene
Iím afraid the previously highlighted sections will need to grow out so it will take sometime and you will need to keep re colouring your hair as they will be visible. The good thing is that there are some fabulous semi colours that you can apply that will tone and blend the highlights and are very conditioning so I would advise you to apply one every other month. Good luck
