About 2 years ago I had an allergic reaction to the same black hair dye I have been using for 5 years, I know it was the PPD it contained which caused my allergic reaction (ie face and head swelling up). I now have a good length of brown hair and would like to bleach it, the boxes of bleach I have looked at in the shops have no PPD as an ingredient, do you think I could use this if I wore a cap? Reducing contact with the scalp?

Even though the bleach does not contain para dyes it can still cause an allergic reaction. The box bleach that you find at a shop will not lift your hair very well as the level or peroxide is very low. Also you should never use powder bleach on the scalp anyway. May I suggest going to a salon getting a consultation and letting them give you a skin test with bleach to see if you have any type of reaction. The colour specialist may be able to give you some other alternatives such as hi lights using easi meche or foils.

I have grown out my hair for about 2 years, and essentially it was
perfect it was dark, long, perfectly healthy, and most importantly all one length. It is naturally curly, but I have become a master at getting it straight with an incredibly long, but effective method with rollers and a dryer. About 6 weeks ago, I went in for my last trim, and I asked for a little movement in my hair so it would be a little more textured and maybe not so boring..... and my long time stylist cut HUGE THICK layers in my hair! I have really short thick layers that are SO noticeable with my remaining long length. It looks like I have two different lengths of hair. One helmet and then my long under layers.... What should I do? How can I keep my length that I have wanted for so long and get rid of these layers? 6 weeks has done some improvement. But my longest layer is getting longer too, so the ratio kind of just stays .. Should I just keep on trimming it till both layers catch up with each other? Or can I leave it long????

I would blend your short layers into the rest of your hair to get rid of the helmet look! Other than that it is a case of having patience and growing your layers. The other thing you could do is have your length cut to your longest layers and then wait for the shorter ones to catch up. The other alternative is to have some extensions put in to save you waiting for it to happen naturally!

I have very thick curly long dark brown hair without a fringe. My hair feels very heavy, but if I have much shorter hair it becomes very curly and unmanageable. I would be grateful for any suggestions that you can offer.

I think you should work with longer layers in your hair, this would be ideal as it would lighten it up and make it more flowing. I would suggest some nice layers in the front to open up your face starting from chin length and won or possibly a long sweeping fringe could make the hair look lighter and more interesting. Another suggestion is for the hair to be cut into a bit as well as this will help to give it a more lighter feel.
