I have waist length, naturally dark brown hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted the Balayage style with a slightly lighter brown. After the treatment, I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís blotchy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry. I had no split ends before this but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because itís often damaging and I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour).

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.
|Lily asks: |
I have been blonde for sixteen years. I am 34, my hair is long and is in good condition but ever since moving away from London 8 years ago I cannot find a hairdresser that will give me the blonde hair I once had.
I used to have an all over high lift blonde tint and a few scattered highlights for dimension. I think hairdressers call it double processing. The colour was very light but was perfect. I had no banding and the re-grow was fine.
Any hairdresser I have tried the past eight years keeps trying to get me to have a fill set of highlights which I hate. I recently went to someone who understands what I was talking about but the tint sheís using isnít light enough and she keeps putting more and more foils in. After 3 weeks I feel that my hair looks a mess especially when I tie it up.
I donít get chance to go back home to London much due to work and children otherwise I would still go to my old hairdresser.
Can you please advise me what to actually ask for next time I go for my appointment?
I have even showed pictures in the past and I am still unhappy.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, xx

This is always a difficult one as the hair changes over the years so what once was perfect would need to be adjusted anyway. I would suggest if you havenít done already contact your old hairdresser and ask for the brand of colour as well as the level and tone, what developer it was mixed with and the processing time. Colour products vary so much and quite often we hairdressers have our own way of mixing and processing so it would be helpful to be exact to what you previously had and may help you get the result you really want. Also get the formula and processing time for the highlights, then book a consultation at a new salon armed with all the details and go from there.
|Lakshay asks: |
Hey,Iím from India. Iím 18 years old. My problem is that around 50% of my hair have turned grey. Initially I used to apply henna on my hair to cover grey hair. But now it has started to look weird. I feel very depressed each time I look into the mirror. My friends also make fun of my hair. Is it possible to turn my hair to black again. If not what should I do. I have tried different hairstyles but nothing worked in my favour. Please help

Lakshay Iím so sorry that your hair is making you feel so unhappy. It is possible to colour the grey hair black very succesfully and easily. If you can get to a hair salon they will be able to do it for you, or you could buy a black 01 box colour from a local pharmacy or store and do it your self or get a friend to do it but uoi must follow the instructions carfeully. Good luck
