Kelly Edney asks:
I currently have blue hair and I have gone through quite a long period of dying my hair different colours, nothing really extreme just a colour every two months. In October last year I dyed my natural ginger hair red because I just wanted to add a little colour, by the beginning of January I grew bored of red and tried black. I really liked the colour until the end of march where I wanted to get rid of it, I stripped the colour out but it left over half my hair stained brown, I thought it was just going to be a tough colour to remove so I stripped it again the week after. It was kind of ginger for about two days before fading back to a dark brown colour. At the end of April I got my hair bleached and dyed with a semi permanent purple dye at a hairdressers. About five days ago I stripped out the colour which made my hair go to a lightish purple with some grey and blue in the mix, I got bored of the purple and decided to dye my hair with a semi permanent blue dye. I bleached the ends so it would be lighter at the bottom. So now I currently have blue hair, but Iím starting to miss my natural colour. I know I canít just remove all the dye and it will be magically ginger again, but I want to know If there is a way to remove this colour and then dye my hair to a similar shade of ginger so it looks natural again? Iím not going to get it done straight away, it will probably be in a month or two, I just want to know if there is a way to achieve this.

Goodness me Kelly you get bored quickly, but I love how you are experimenting with your hair so much. De colouring or what is known as a bleach bath is what is required just to left out the residue of old colours, make sure you use a protein leave in treatment conditioner to help maintain the hairs integrity during the process as well as even out the porosiity. ...More >

Lift the hair to an orange colour which should be quite easy and then use the protein spray again as it will help give a more even, uniform result with the chossen colour. Yopu can go in with a semi of the nearest to your natural colour and then depending on how light of dark it goes you can add a more permanent one for extra staying power. Make sure due to the amount you have done to your hair and how porous it will be you always choose a colour

1 shade lighter than your desired result. I would maintain the vibrancy of the ginger with colour conditioners.

Thanks and good luck





Janet asks:
I am 62 years of age. I colour my hair but does the texture of your hair change as you get older? it also seems to grow quicker on the one side.

Hi Janet

You are correct the texture of the hair, just like our skin does change as we get older. With hair it tends to be more coarse and unruly, also feels more dry due to lack of moisture. It wouldnít grow faster on one side but you may find the texture of the natural hair may have more grey under the colour and hence behave very differently. I would condition your hair and perhaps use smoothing balm or lotion when blowdrying or leaving to dry, paying particular attention to the area that seems to grow faster and see if having more moisture makes it more manageable? ...More >

Good luck,

Erin asks:
Iím 15 and Iíve never done much with my hair. I have long, naturally golden blonde wavy hair and extremely fair skin with cool undertones. I really want to try something new, but both my ballet school and dance company require our hair to be in a bun for all performances and classes with no unnaturally colored hair. I like lot of edgy/modern/trendy hairstyles (i.e. pixie cuts, platinum hair, textured bangs), but most of these donít follow the guidelines. Are there any different hairstyles/colours that I could get that would either meet the restrictions or be able to be hidden when needed?

Hi Erin

What a dilemma, hair cut wise its difficult other than long layers and perhaps a texture asymmetric fringe (bang ) thatís long enough to tuck into the groomed bun for dancing! My niece has the very same issues and we have used some amazing temporary pastel chalks and sprays to make her feel like she has options. You could have some platinum colour placement or a very soft Balyage as this wouldnít notice when the hair is pulled back and spray into place? I would suggest popping to a salon and explaining and see what they come up with. ...More >

Good luck with the dancing and the hair,

Kala
