Mina Winter asks:
Last week I went to the hairdressers and my hair was a medium brown colour with dark roots. I asked them if they could dye it grey, leaving my dark roots since this is quite trendy now. They assessed my hair in a consultation. They asked for £75, I agreed. I went and came out with 50 different colours in my hair but it was fine because they all looked grey. Then I washed my hair a few days later with regular shampoo and my hair was green and orange at the top. Went back and they said it was because I didnít use silver shampoo. I was sceptical of this because it was just after 1 wash and such a dramatic colour change. So they tried to fix it and made it even worse. Now there were 100 colours in my hair from dark brown to grey with green orange and yellow in. I got really upset because I even had a hair consultation and they told me they could get my hair like that. Then they asked me what dye I home coloured with before and I said Garnier Olia- apparently it created an oil barrier so they couldnít do anything. They then put a dark brown in my hair after all that damage. Came out fine but way darker than I would like. I was so angry and Iím never going back there. They didnít even give me a refund. My question is after this natural black colour if I use a normal shampoo or try to fade the colour what will happen?

Hey Mina.

Okay, so I can see the journey you have taken, and there are many reasons on why you have ended up with multi-tone hair, but lets stick with your main question. ...More >

Colour fade shampoos will help maintain the colour and slow down or prevent colour fade.

However as this is not what you want I would recommend a shampoo that is going to look after the condition of your hair. Redkenís Extreme would be a great choice , this is because your hair has been through a lot by de-colourizing (using bleach) to lift your hair.

As the fade will happen over time, I would not try to lift it with any chemical process at the moment, and if that is something you are looking into then you should see a stylist. Tell them exactly what you had on your hair pre your last experiences and then everything that has been applied during that experience.

They will do a strand test to see if it is possible, do not try any of this at home.

However I would recommend waiting a few weeks to see where the shade has lifted to, then naturally re-evaluate.

All the best,

Gary





Sarah asks:
My child pulls his/her hair out ,how do I stop it, and will it grow back.

Its best to discourage gently and not get cross-children usually do this, either because they are nervous or as a comforter.Maybe a doll with real feeling hair for the child to play with would help, to try and get them to transfer the action. ...More >

I have known of this to work. The best thing is to distract your child as soon as you notice by giving them something to play with, that needs both of their hands, and not to bring attention to it verbally.

The hair does grow back , it can be a bit weaker to start off with but soon catches up .

In my experience children grow out of this habit much the same as sucking a dummy.







Audrey asks:
I was wondering if it would be possible to go from a dark brown shade to a honey blonde/brown hair colour. My hairdresser says I canít go that light, but Iíve seen many celebrities pull it off without the brassy look and they arenít natural blondes. Iíd love to get any advice from you

This colour should be easy to achieve by a talented colourist. The important thing you need to watch out is that the hair colourist you choose is committed and experienced in this type of work and uses the best colours available on the market such as LíOreal, Goldwell, Wella or Schwarzkopf. These companies have many choices of colours to choose from. It is essential that you use good home care products after your High and Low light have been applied, to keep the colours looking fresh and healthy. I must add, Celebrities do spend small fortunes on Hair and colours, to be the owner of such beautiful hair you need to consider spending top money. Have you considered becoming a salon Model at a top salon? The charges are less and the work should be good, for example most top salons have training evenings, find out by calling salon and find out if they need models for colouring practice, tell them what you want, negotiate the colour you want to end up with, you maybe just lucky to get the whole work for little money, maybe you need to compromise a little but it should be worth it. I do hope this helps and have fun with your new colour.
