Kimberly asks:
Iíve had blonde hi lites in my hair for a year full head tint 2 years previous to that. My problem is, after returning from Cancun in September my hair was completely white, which was fine except that my roots looked terrible, like black and white hair and because it had been hi lites was really dark underneath at the back as well. I asked my stylist if tint would be a better option and less damage and maintenance than constantly having to cover up what looked like black roots (I was a natural blonde but have got a lot darker over the years and probably very dark blonde or light brown now). The procedure was a disaster, the tint went orange and she put a toner on it but then this made the hi lites ash/grey. After 3 hours I had to leave as it was 8pm at night. Came home and my hair was yellow/orange on top and silvery/grey the rest. Went back to see her after the weekend and she said she would put a toner on the hi lites which should take the ash tone away and all she could do was put a brown tint on the top to mask the yellow/orange. I am totally distraught, look like an old woman and only 30. My hair has gone mousey brown but the hi lites still look grey. It has been 3 weeks and has faded a lot,(been shampooing with a tone correct and reconstructor conditioner. The hi lites look caramel at the top which is ok but the rest is this horrible brown/grey shade and breaking when I dry it. I will go to a professional salon but worried about anyone touching it but cannot bear to look like this anymore. In your professional opinion, can I go blonde at this stage without anymore bleach in my hair. My boyfriend is ready for dumping me as he says I look like my mother! Help!

OMG!!! you have been put through the ringer girl!!!

First things first, THIS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED if you went to a professional but we are where we are. Or should I say you are. ...More >

Without actually seeing your hair first hand I cannot say with any clarity, yet what I can state is that you should have a strand test taken. This way a sample of your hair is taken and coloured from roots to end. When developed you see the result that you would be paying for.

To stop your boyfriend dumping you and running off with your mum, only kidding, visit a good experienced salon and have a consultation, get good advice, ask about a strand test so you could see the colour result prior to going ahead. This way you will keep in on your head and not on the floor as it beaks off from over processing.





Jimmy asks:
I have very thick hair, and really curly at back and front, my friend told me to get it thinned out but would that mean cutting it off or just thinning out the layers, Iím thinking about growing it just below my ears and trimmed at back to spike it up, and have long fringe at front joined by the sides. What do I do, please can you help me?

It is possible to thin hair without losing your length using various Techniques. Ask for weight removal from the interior shape without losing length from the perimeter shape. It would probably be useful to book a consultation at a reputable salon.







Maria asks:
The fringe of my hair has gone very thin, I have used many products but feel I have been wasting my money, the more I am worrying about it, the worse it is getting!

The first thing to do is stop worrying- the thinning of your hair can be easily remedied, without going to drastic measures. Aside from taking supplements and maintaining a health balanced lifestyle, just follow my 4 easy steps to doubling the volume of your hair instantly- no expensive treatments needed.
  1. After washing your hair rub a generous amount (about a tennis ball size amount) of Lee Stafford Ddouble Blow Mousse into your hair, which should help give you that root lift and movement that you need in your fringe and the main body of your hair to create added volume and thickness.
  2. Then as you blow dry you fringe be careful not to use too high a heat setting as this can dry out and damage your hair thus adding to the thinning problem.
  3. Be sure to vary the heat and wave of the dryer so that you donít concentrate the air flow on one section for too long.
  4. Why not also try using my Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment in between shampooing and conditioning your hair. This product has a soothing formulation which reduces irritation caused to the hair by day to day products and moisturises the scalp. Massage a generous scoop of the treatment into your roots and leave for 5 minutes. Rinse out and condition as normal.
