Lizelle asks:
Good day. About 6-7 weeks ago I coloured my hair black for an event and Iím naturally blonde. My hair grows about 1,5cm (+-1inch) a month, so as can think my roots are looking disgusting. I donít want to keep my hair black, Iíd like to be blonde again. I donít have the finances to go to a salon. Do you perhaps have any advice on home remedies I can try? Or any cheaper way of doing it?

Must have been some event! The positive news is as you have only done it once and straight over the top of blonde hair it is actually easier to remove. The couple of options that you have are Ė buy a decolourant and follow the instructions exactly there are some great ones available on the market, but you must follow the instructions. Other option is to add some bleach powder, peroxide20 vol (6%) and washing up liquid, apply to wet hair massage and comb through and keep combing for 20 mins, shampoo, rinse and repeat if needed. This may not get you blonde but it will make the hair much lighter and the colour will continue to fade. ...More >

Hope this helps?

Diana Sarah asks:
Hi, so I have medium length hair and it is very very fine and thin! But I have this problem, where all of my hair isnít the same length, and from the middle of my hair to the very bottom, it all parts in sections, and gets like stringy (Not split ends), even when I go for a haircut, the ends will end up going like this again the next day. Even when I straighten it, it goes back like this. I can never wear my hair down nicely anymore. Is there anything I can do to stop this problem? It makes me have to brush my hair constantly and I know that is very bad for my hair.

Hi Diana

I not sure exactly what this could be but Iím guessing its breakage from brushing and wear and tear on the most vulnerable section of your hair. I suggest you use a small pure bristle brush, have the length of your hair cut a bit shorter, and invest in the best possible protein shampoo and protein leave in conditioner and treatment. It will improve over time. ...More >

Good luck

Kerry asks:
Hi there. I would just like to know if there is such a thing as "permanent purple/red etc." hair dye?? I have always been under the impression that the bright colours always fade faster until someone challenged me on recently and as pretty adamant I was wrong. I really donít think my hairdresser is going to lie to me. I have been going to her for years.

Hi Kerry

I have to sit on the fence on this one as there are permanent version of red and purple that are amazing and they do last so much longer than they ever did. I believe its to do with the types of dye pigments, but also that there are better shampoo and conditioners that help with the longevity, condition as well as act like top up maintenance. The secret is to make sure you have pre lightened your base colour to the correct undertone to hold the red or purple first, think of it like base coat or undercoat itís the complimenting tone so when it does fade its less obvious. ...More >

I do hope this helps?
