Hello, about two months ago I went from my platinum blonde hair to wanting to go back to my natural ash blonde hair. I went to Sallyís beauty salon in Canada and they told me wrong information; I added an ash brown colour straight to my hair and it turned green. Then I went back for correction advice (bad idea) and they told me to add a dark red brown to tone out the green. My mom put a bit too much of the dye on my hair, and it went way too red and became more damaged. I then went to my old high schoolís hair salon, and they added an ash tone to my hair to hide the red. All of these processes happened within a week, and I am upset with myself that I didnít space it out more as my hair became dry and weaker. I have thin fine hair. Now it is two months later, and in inside lighting my hair looks the ashy tone, but outside it is a horrible orange/red auburn colour in the sun and I absolutely hate it. I have so many regrets. Now I am torn between the decision to either dye it a darker brown, or try and get back to my ash blonde or close enough to it, with minimal damage. I dread the idea of having to bleach it, although I feel it wouldnít be too bad if it was stretched out into multiple processes and conditioned thoroughly. I just desperately want this auburn colour gone and an ashy colour as my skin tone is cool, not warm. I really hope you can help me with some advice. It seems the only thing that would gain my full confidence back is a time machine, which is obviously impossible at this time. My mental health has been greatly affected and I just dream of being happy again with myself.
Thank you for your time.

I am so sorry for you, but all is not lost. ...More >
Firstly invest in the best shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask and spray leave in protein conditioner. You will need to have a strict hair care regime of using the treatment mask every time you shampoo for 1 month - leave it for 20 mins and cover with a shower cap. Use the conditioner and comb it through before rinsing. The leave in conditioner is also essential as it strengthens the hair and helps even out the porosity so you will get a more even colour result.
Then using something like baby shampoo or washing up liquid wash your hair leave the solution on your hair for 5 mins rinse and repeat. This again will strip out colour and residue but with soap rather than bleach.
Dry your hair off then apply an ash blonde that is 1 or 2 shades lighter than your desired result apply to the root area first the spray the protein spray onto the rest of your hair. After 15 mins add 10mls of the protein spray to the left over colour mixture and apply to the rest of your hair. Process for 15 mins. After shampooing and using the treatment etc with luck you should have an even ash blonde result. You can always invest in corrective colour conditioner in violet or silver use this and leave for 5 mins if you still have unwanted warm tones. You can replace the normal conditioner with the coloured one.
If you choose to go brown instead you do the same as above with an ash brown.
Good luck and I hope your feeling confident again soon x x

I have a pretty big heart shaped head and Iíve always had pretty long and thick hair, Iím thinking of shaving one side of the head but Iím not sure if it will look good, do you have any advice? Iím a male

I think itís a great way to have style options as well as to loose some of the thickness and weight. You could perhaps think about having it as a full undercut at a later stage? ...More >

Hi, I have had my hair nearly white blonde (bleached with in an inch of its life,
home bleach) for over a year and I loved it but it was in such bad condition and dry that I decided to go to a hairdressers locally to go darker, only she took me a lot darker than I wanted and I hate it, a month on I still make myself jump walking past a mirror and youíre talking someone whoís always had different colour hair theyíre whole life but I just canít get used to this. I desperately want to go back to blonde and I know that means moisturising after but I just donít know if my hair will take it. Any advice would be much appreciated I hate not being

Hi Emma. I think we have all done this at least once in our lives! I would keep shampooing it as much as possible and leave the shampoo on for a few minutes before rinsing as it will help fade the colour a bit. My suggestion is to have highlights, and couple of times and then that way you can maintain the condition of your hair whilst going lighter. Perhaps try a balayage or ombre style look to give you an in-between but that lightens up your hair so you start to feel like you again? Good luck x
