|Dee asks: |
I have dark colored hair. I had highlighted my hair earlier like 6 months ago with chestnut streaks. Now I am thinking of switching to burgundy or mahogany or auburn to get the reddish brown streaks. But some of my friends have suggested that it will turn orange after 3 months. I am a lazy person and will not visit the salon often. The present colour of my highlights which as I mentioned earlier are chestnut in colour, but when it faded it did not change much but I am afraid if any of those colours that I want to choose might turn orange if I donít touch them up often. Please help what should I do?

I understand what your friends are saying because they have had a situation where their hair was lifted to a orange stage either with a lightener (bleach) then a colour was deposited on top, or with a permanent colour, that also lifted their natural colour to a orange stage then deposited a red tone on top, which either way done, then faded to orange the level it was lifted to. So I would suggest that if your hair is light enough now to be able to put the desired red tone on top of what you have and you use a deposit color only (Semi) then it will fade eventually to what you have now and not to an orange. So the trick is to use a deposit only colour (Semi maybe Demi but I would need to see your hair) in the red to red mahogany family without lifting your hair, however if you do not like to frequent your stylist then red might not be a good choice for you as red shades do fade quicker and are higher maintenance than other shades but can be fun for a change.

I am a 17 year old girl, who has used an excessive amount of black hair dye. It was a phase I went through and now I can not do a thing with it! I put some coloured hair extensions to spice things up, but again I grew bored of them. I was wondering is there a good way to lighten up my dark hair without completely destroying it and looking tacky?

Unfortunately the only thing you can do to remove the black hair colour is to bleach and lift the black colour out, which can be quite damaging if not done professionally. Your stylist should be able to advise you if they feel your hair can handle being bleached and to what level it will be possible to lift to without being over processed. I would recommend that if you do lighten it, to do it in pieces as oppose to your entire head and do it gradually over time.

I am 42 yrs old and in the last few years my hair has got so thin. It really has become a problem, as I hate even going on nights out, as I feel so bad about it. It is shoulder length because I donít suit short hair... any ideas would be great!

Hi Jane - first of all if your hair is blonde it might look thinner; if itís dark it might be better to put some layers in it. What I think you need to do, is go to a really great colourist and seek advice close to where you live and do the same for your cutting. You might need to lose a little of your long hair which might help with the thickness if layered.
