I am wanting to have highlights on my hair but I used to dye my own hair blonde but when I last did a test for the dye I had a reaction they said it was a dermatitis would I be able to have highlights? I have also got some grey hair I am not sure what my colour is at the moment but when I was young it was red I am 52 now and desperate to do something with it. My friends say itís a dirty blonde colour I am not sure please can you advise?

Yes you can dye your hair but please see a professional first. It is really important no colour touches the scalp due to your reaction last time however opt for highlights using foil, this process doesnít let the colour touch the scalp and therefore you should not have any problem with any reactions.

I am having rather a huge crisis with my hair. It is Auburn, really long and thick, and my curls are more like wide crimps than twizzles. It becomes a nightmare when it dries after washing as it fluffs up and swells to twice its size. Iíve been due for a hair cut for 4 months and now my old hair cut is starting to lose shape. What can I do to my hair to make it full of life, less fluffy and more interesting? Iíve stuck with the same style of a few long layers and a fringe with feathering around the face for a long time. What is best to stop it springing up out of control? Also, what would you suggest is the best thing to do for a fringe that doesnít really seem to grow out? Granted, I do straighten it everyday, but surely that doesnít stunt the growth as hair grows from the roots? Please let me know whatís best as my hair really needs a re-vamp!

Many of your problems will come from straightening your hair every day. Everyone thinks that because hair irons are hot and getting hotter that this is a good thing. IT IS NOT. I have a question, would you iron your favourite silk dress or pure wool jumper with your iron on full heat? I donít think so it would be ruined. Without question I would recommend you invest in a good quality Platform irons. These have a variable temperature which is important. What you must do to maintain your hair condition is. Firstly set the temperature to around 180 degrees. Then very slowly glide the iron down the length of the hair in one action which we call "one pass". DO NOT USE HEAT PROTECTION SPRAY IT BOILS THE KERATIN. If you notice a lot of steam coming of your hair then your iron is too hot. If you follow this advice I guarantee you that your hair will be like silk, feel smooth and soft and as if you have put on a deep penetrating conditioning treatment. I do not know if you blow dry your hair or leave it to dry naturally. I would blow dry it with a nano professional 1900 hairdryer which has a low air speed and fantastic technology to maintain your hairs moisture. Only use a paddle brush (bristle if you can get one) and run the brush across your head from roots to ends (with your head upside down if you find it easier). Your hair again will feel like silk (not fluffy). If you follow this routine just see what happens to your hair.

My face is very small and oval what kind of hairstyle would suit me? I could try something short with bangs?
|Answered By: |
Most styles suit an oval face shape, but I would be wary of keeping your hair to long as this may drown your small face shape.
Without seeing your face I would suggest a shorter style like a little short layered crop as this can still be soft and feminine and will complement your small oval face shape.
