Kiera asks:
Hi guys, Iím thinking about dying my hair red in the near future and was just wondering if I should bleach my hair first as it is almost black ( naturally ) I know it says on the boxes of home dye kits that they are not suitable for bleached or natural blonde hair. I have tried dying my hair red in the past without bleaching first using home kits and the red didnít even touch my hair.

Its is important to bleach or pre lighten the hair to the correct undertone in order for the red you choose to be vibrant and long lasting. This usually means lifting the hair to a red/ orange colour before shampooing to remove, blowdrying then applying the desired red.

Itís a pretty tricky process to do evenly and so I would always recommended you ask a stylist for details if cost is an issue then ask if there is a trainee stylist available that needs to practice. Good after care is also essential to keep the red vibrant and long lasting!!!





Nicky Crompton asks:
Hi

Iím a fourteen year old male and my hair line, Iíve noticed has gone a little further back. This wasnít too bad, but I noticed that my hair was quite thick and for some reason decided to use a non-electric razor and it now really looks like I have a receding hair line. Will the area I used the razor on grow back?

Hi there.

The hair should grow back where you razored if it was there originally. ...More >

It will take a couple of weeks to tell. Donít over wash your hair and next time go to a professional who can thin out thick growth without leaving your hair scarce.
Hope this helps

Samie asks:
I have thick hair that goes to about my chest. Throughout the day, even if Iíve washed the night before, my hair starts to get limp, stringy, and greasy. Iíve tried dry shampoo and baby powder, but neither seem to be working, it just makes my hair chalky in addition to looking gross and oily. What can I do???

Hi Samie,

It sounds like you hair is prone to getting oily which is quite common, and nothing to worry over, I would recommend that you start to manage this by changing your homecare regime to something designed specifically to tackle greasy roots. Kerastase bain divalent is by far the best product on the market for this type of hair in my opinion. The shampoo is very concentrated so only requires a small amount to work (roughly the size of a fifty pence piece), it is not designed to lather on the first shampoo so donít worry of it doesnít foam up. Spread the shampoo with the flats of your hands accross the whole of your head, if itís particularly greasy use less water on the first shampoo as this will dilute the product. Once the shampoo has been spread accross the hair leave it for a minute before massaging or scrubbing, this will allow the product to work by it self and over massging can encourage the sebaceous gland to produce more oil throughout the day. I would give it 2 shampoos and then, if conditioner is needed, use something really light and just on the ends of the hair to detangle and rinse straight away. Keep the conditioner away from the roots. ...More >

I would also recommend drying your hair rather than it to dry naturally but avoid over working it, so blast dry the majority, if not all, and style as you like, drying it off rather than leaving it to dry tends dry out the hair a little bit so makes it less greasy looking.

The cut make also be weighing your hair down by the sounds of things, having a bit of scaffolding or shape to pull the hair away from the face might also give it more life and stop it feeling so dull and limp. Colour is also a great way to dry out oily roots whenever my hair needs colouring it tends to be more oily so again this could be something you might like to consider to give it a bit more hold and body.

Finally, whilst dry shampoos are great for absorbing grease i agree they can make your hair look dull and chalky, tec ni art do a fantastic hairspray in their new wild stylers range called next day hair which is a spray that contains a powder. Spray directly into the roots section by section to give body and hold without the chalky texture youíve been experiencing. This product is great as little top up through the day if youíve noticed your hair going a bit limp.

I hope this all helps and you start to see some results.
