Karen asks:
I need some advice about my grey/white hair. I am so paranoid about my grey/white hair that I have my roots done every 3 weeks, but over the past few years the grey comes through after about 2 weeks, which I honestly canít afford to do! My hairdresser has lightened my colour, she now uses Wella Koleston Perfect 6/7 and 66/0, Iíve also tried highlights on my top section but I find the highlights go too light when the sunís out and it feels so dry! Iíve also noticed that it looks as though the tint has not taken in certain areas of the hair, say for instance, you have a few mm of grey hair then another lighter shade that looks as though the colour hasnít taken?/part of the grey hair hasnít took to the colour, or am I being paranoid? Iím just not confident enough to ask my hairdresser what is going on, I have known her for a number of years and sheís the only one I can trust, I do not go to a salon as they are too expensive and I do find the process takes ages (waiting for other customers etc to be finished), and I donít get the time! Iíve noticed that recommending pre-softening but when I mentioned this she looked at me as though I was stupid! I didnít know what to say as I donít know myself! I just need some proper advice.

To be honest I would strongly advise booking a free colour consultation with a Wella Master Colour Expert so that they can see the issues you are having and advice accordingly. It does sound like your grey hair maybe resistant to the colour so you would probably benefit from pre softening which will help the colour "grab" onto your grey. I think if your current hairdresser does not know how to do this you may have to consider using a professional salon to get the result you require.

Dianne asks:
My previous hairdresser was really cautious with my fine long hair. I have it blonde and she never used heat and advised me not to, and to never backcomb or do anything damaging. My current hairdresser is more gung-go, using the dryer to cook my colour, combing it through, saying backcombing is fine, etc. My scalp is crusty from this latest colouring and I think there may be a slight deterioration in my hair condition. What is your opinion on the treatment of long, coloured, 50 old year old fine hair?

Colour can be left to develop with and without heat however, if you feel like it doesnít need the heat then leave it to develop naturally. As to backcombing, this is something that should be done gently and cautiously. Again if you donít need to then lay off and keep things simple.

Joe asks:
2 years ago I experimented with hair lightener and bleached my hair a few times. I have naturally very dark brown/black hair and the result of the bleaching gave me a strawberry blonde colour which I was very unhappy with. 2 years on from the last time I put bleach on my hair, my hair is growing through a strawberry blonde colour in places. Why is this happening to me when I donít have red hair and have never had red hair in my life?

This is a tricky one really. If you mean that the older hair (middle lengths and ends) are growing through strawberry blonde, then this could mean that although your natural colour may appear to be dark brown/black in actual fact there is probably some natural warm tones that have been brought out by the bleach (this is quite normal). If on the other hand the strawberry blonde is growing through as new hair from the root then this is something I have never heard of before. If this is the case you could consider having your hair coloured to match your natural colour.
