Laura asks:
I have medium/dark brown hair and recently got hidden highlights, they are too bright and I would like to dye them a light brown colour.
I read if you dye blonde highlights using brown dye, they will turn green.
Is this true?

Can you advice the best way to go about achieving medium/dark brown base with light brown highlights?
many thanks

Hi Laura

No the highlights wonít turn green unless they are white heavy bleach, which they arenít. The best way to do what your after I think is to use colour conditioner, that way you have total control, the longer (max 15 mins) you leave the conditioner on the more colour it will deposit and longer it will last. You can change the tonal colour of your hair this way too in the summer and itís kind to the hair. There are so many great ones and lots of colour choice to choose from. ...More >

Hope that helps.

Aubree asks:
Around mid October I decided to do something with my hair and got some crochet havana twists done. After a while, maybe the end of December, I took them down and deep conditioned my hair. After a day, I went and got box braids done. I still have the box braids now and I will be taking them down this month. However, my birthday is approaching and I do not want to wear my natural hair because I am embarrassed of the length. Would it be safe to get a sew in or would it break my hair off for not giving it a break?

Hi Aubree

Without seeing your hair I canít tell the condition or strength, but what I will say is that itís more of a tension or traction issue I would say to be concerned about, i.e. wearing the hair to tightly braided apply pressure around the hairline etc. so just be mindful of that. As you wonít have used heat I think it will be safe to have a weft sewn in just take care of your scalp. ...More >

Good luck

Lisa Hodkinson asks:
My 5 year old daughter has the more beautiful red curly hair. She had been asking to have her hair cut for a while and for some reason I decided to give her a trim myself. As should have been predicted, I took off way more than I planned to and ended up giving her a bob. I fear that I have ruined her hair. Her hair is still showing some bouncy curls around her face, but the back is worryingly straight now. What I can do and I have chopped her curls away for good?!

Oh Lisa

Been there and done that! You havenít ruined her hair if its going to be curly it will grow back curly, quite often a big hair cut can mean that they hair is heavier rather than layered so makes the curl drop, or if the curl is a soft one its just been cut at a point that its not long enough to reform. You can do a number of things, when you shampoo your hair use a curl activating leave in conditioner they normally contain magnesium and are available online and from professional salons, always comb it through with a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute and then gently scrunch your hair in your hand as its drying. If you normally leave it to dry naturally or use a dryer and diffuse on slow speed medium heat and just let your hair sit in the diffuser until itís dry donít move it around.
Hair has memory and it remembers its shape when wet so how you treat it during the drying process is critical to the end result. Use the same leave in conditioner or curl enhancer daily just a light spritz and donít brush your hair, use a wide tooth comb or a tangle teezer style brush and dry as above. ...More >

If you are going to be curly they will come back, but this will help, good luck
