Tracy asks:
My hair is coloured Koleston perfect 55/46 on top and 22/0 underneath. I have recently had a perm. It took really well on the dark hair but on the red hair it is like chewing gum. Could the red colour be affected differently?

There is nothing quite like a brilliant red as you had 55/46. But, if your hair is not in perfect condition it would be affected by a perm, also if the perm solution was too strong for your hair type it may have caused this problem. Strong reds and perms often do not mix well. It was not the colour that caused this, it was the perm. From your description. It sounds to me that your hair is ruined , as I am not liking the words chewing Gum. What I suggest is to opt for a straighter look again and have a total restyle. Get as much as the perm out as possible. In the meantime, use strong red shade from the Colour Fresh range all over the red part of your hair- these are true semi permanent shade that will add great tone and shine to your hair. You can continue to use Koleston on the roots, but feed the ends with Colour Fresh. Also use a treatment at least 3 times a week until your hair begins to feel in better condition.

Amy asks:
I have always had long, straight, highlighted hair. I really want a change but I am to scared to go short. My face is a little chubby and oval. I think I am too pale to go for a dark colour. My hair is also fairly thin. Can you suggest a new cut or colours? Or am I stuck with lanky blond locks?

The first thing to consider is your face shape. If your face is oval shaped then you should not go to short at the sides or add too much curl as this will emphasis the oval shape, other than this the world is your oyster.

It might be nice to go shorter at the back but leaving length towards the front. Another possibility is to have some form of layering added to create movement and texture. As far as colour is concerned I would suggest maybe trying warmer tones rather than light blondes, maybe something like a mixture of honey blondes and some subtle warm colours.

Vicky asks:
I have JUST turned 17, and over the past 7 or 8 months I have noticed that I have loads of grey hairs scattered around my hair. As more and more people point them out it is becoming more and more important to do something about them. I have never coloured my hair before, and I was wondering if you could advise me on any shampoos on the market to help greys or help me with the best home colouring kit, brand etc. to use, I don't want to pay loads for the colour but I still want it to be affective and natural looking. Thank you for any advice you can give me. p.s Do not suppose anyone might know what could be causing this premature greying?

Grey hair is caused by loss of pigment which can be resultant of strong medication, shock or pregnancy to name but a few reasons. Having an all over tint would eliminate any grey, but might cause a more distinct grey re-growth. Opting for some lighter streaks might help to blend the grey and give a more natural look without heavy roots. Visit your nearest salon for a consultation and discuss booking in on a model night for a more economical option. Always avoid home colouring as a box colour will not guarantee the right results and can heavenly worsen condition.
