Charley asks:
How to fix badly dyed hair, needs to go from patchy bleached orange hair to blonde

Hi Charley

The best thing to do first is use a professional treatment masque if you can, this will help condition your hair before you re-colour. Then use a protein leave in conditioner on clean dry hair before you apply the colour, this will even the porosity of your hair during the processing time and mean you have a more uniform colour result. ...More >

The choices then are colour or bleach, if you have short hair I would go for bleach with a low volume developer and then use a toner for the desired result. If its longer use a highlight ash based colour this means it will lift your hair at the same time as neutralising unwanted warm tones. You must process the colour for the full time and you can then use silver or violet conditioner if you want further cool tones.

Good luck





Becca asks:
Hi, for years now, Iíve had fine, static hair. I canít even use a wooden brush or metal comb without my hair becoming static. Iíve tried all the tricks, using different brushes, shampoo and conditioners, going a while without washing it. I donít dye my hair or use straighteners/dryers on it. All the advice I get given doesnít work. Is there a product I should be using? I did try leave in sprays, oils and conditioners but that did nothing. Thanks

Hi Becca

It sounds to me like you have tried everything, may I suggest a pure bristle brush, before you take it through your hair spray the brush with dry shampoo. I wouldnít normally recommend using a bristle brush on fine hair, but it does add moisture, skip the oils, serums and leave in conditioner unless itís a high protein one. Use a volumising shampoo, and dry your hair as slowly as possible. The dry shampoo on the bristle brush should calm the static, a travel size version can be kept in your handbag that way you should be able to control it during the day when you brush. ...More >

Good luck







Elena Georgiou asks:
I am 23 and have done a ton of awful things to my hair thus far. My hair colour is naturally a dark brown (almost black) and I have pale olive skin. I have gotten it dyed at the salon, box dyed, dyes from Sallyís Beauty Boutique etc. My most recent endeavour was trying to go blonde from my natural hair colour (which had lighter ends from when I was blonde). I used a box dye as a bleach to lift my hair, which turned it bright orange (to be expected). Afterwards I tried to dye over top of the orange with another box dye, which did nothing. I have since tried a toner from Sallyís (which did nothing). I also tried a Highlift dye from sallyís (which lifted my hair but was still orange). Now I have used a semi-permanent hair dye on my hair which did neutralize the brassiness A LITTLE bit (as well as darken my hair to about a medium red-brown). My ideal goal would be to achieve a dark blonde, though I am not sure how to go about it... Is bleaching my only option? Otherwise, even achieving a light brown would be acceptable. Please help.

Hello Elena

Well you are certainly having fun with colour; okay so my advice is that in order to be dark blonde you need to lighten the hait to orange /yellow this will have to be done with bleach and 3% (so pretty gentle) or a colour remover. Then use a protein spray like a leave in conditioner all over your hair and apply a 7A or 7.1 permanent colour mixed with 10 volume / 3% all over the whole of your hair. Process for 30 minutes and then shampoo and condition as usual. Hopefully the result will be perfect if not and itís still too warm re-mix and add ľ tube of ash concentrate to the formula, you donít need to add any additional developer. Process again for 30 mins and then fingers crossed! You may need to use a silver conditioner to keep the cool tones as your hair is so naturally dark it will always throw up warm tones. ...More >

Moving forward this should just be used on the root area with 30 vol /9% as it will need to lift your natural colour rather than deposit, hope this makes sense and really good luck.
