Emily asks:
I was using a colour stripping product on my client when it went hot – it was hot to touch – what could have caused this?

Ken PictonAnswered By:

This reaction can be caused by a number of things:

The cap or foil was placed over the area where the stripper was applied – this may have acted as an insulator, stopping heat from the scalp from escaping and causing the product to become hot to the touch. ...More >

Some home colour can contain metallics dyes and can react with cleansing products causing heat as a bi-product of this chemical reaction

Metals in the water can build up in hair and can have the same effect.

Either way, if a product becomes hot to the touch I would remove it from the hair ASAP as this can cause lasting damage to the hair or scalp.

Sue asks:
My hair is grey at the front and brown I always use So Silver Shampoo and Conditioner at back. I would love it to be grey all over. Is there anything I can do to get this?

I have the same problem and I know exactly what you like and feel. Unfortunately only time will help, because white hair mixed with your natural brown makes the grey, only nature can do this. As a hair artist and colour expert, I have not yet found a way to make hair go whiter quicker. Keep using your silver shampoo it will help you keep the white hair looking fresher and stop the white going yellow. Of course there are ways to make your hair white all over using bleach. However I would not recommend this as it takes away the natural whitening look and needs root colouring every few weeks well and it could damage your hair. Be patient and keep your hair in top condition and shiny, eventually nature will bring you more white hair.

Lisa asks:
I am a 24 year old female. I have highlighted hair and I use GHDs regularly. I always use heat protection spray (Sebastian trilliant) and treat my hair regularly with Lee Stafford conditioners. My hairdresser says my hair is in really good condition but I have really short bits on my hairline (where men recede). These are about 1 inch long and the rest of my hair is past my shoulders! My hairdresser thinks its new hair but I think there’s too much for it to be baby hair. Just wondering what this could be?

It sounds to me like this is breakage from a combination of the colour you have and the use of GHDs. This is very common and nothing to be concerned about, and to be honest you are doing everything you can to help the situation. The only advice I can give is to try not to apply so much heat to the hair but I appreciate this is not always easy.
