Andrea asks:
I have naturally brown hair I have dyed my hair black for about a year and a half which I grew tired of, I wanted it a light golden brown for the summer, I bleached my hair a few times which left it very red at the mid lengths and yellowy at the roots, which I think is because there was a build up of colour at the ends, I then used a medium ash blonde a few shades lighter than I wanted to be I think it was a 9/1 I wanted to be a 7/1. I have coloured it a few times now my hair is a tad too light at the top. But I like it and could bare it, but the mids and ends are still very red, my hair is in ok condition the elasticity isnít too bad but its quite porous, also I have very thick long hair, could you give me any advice on how I could achieve the colour I want without spending a fortune, hopefully Iím almost there, I have been doing this over a ĺ month space of time too rest my hair in between but Iím getting restless now.

You are correct the reason the mid-lengths and ends are still red and not as light as the scalp is the build up of colour. Your options are to continue as you are until eventually your hair grows long enough that you can actually cut the darker ends off. The second option is to lift the ends again to the same color your hair lifted at the scalp area, you will need to use a bleach but my question would be can your hair handle this process again? It sounds like you feel it is already damaged on the ends so unfortunately if that is the case you are stuck with cutting the darker area.

Tracey asks:
I have fine dark blonde/mousey bob style hair and pale skin. It looks dull and boring, so I would like to lighten it slightly, especially round the fringe and face. I want inexpensive and low maintenance with my hair looking as natural as possible. What would you suggest?

The good thing is you know what you want. Wanting to lighten up around the front are of the hair is a nice way to open the face shape up. Also your hair being ímouseyí is the ideal tone to have blonde and not show such a strong regrowth, so you have that going for you too. ...More >

I would suggest consulting with a local hairdresser you feel comfortable with and let them know that you are looking at possibly hi-lighting around the front area; but just a couple of shades lighter than your natural tone. This way you brighten the overall look, but wonít have to worry about a strong regrowth.

Also remember íThe lighter you go the more the regrowth will show. If you like the results may be you will begin to lighten a bit more over the summer; but at least it will be on your terms...Enjoy!

Jill asks:
I have a thyroid problem (under active), and was losing some hair, and it was going very dry and coarse, no matter what I used on it, it was also affecting the growth. I had attempted to grow my hair, and not had an appointment for 3 months, when I went to get my hair cut the hairdressers in question, cut out all the dead hair, and cut it in at the back and took the bottom layers up to ear level. I donít know what she has done to the crown area however; my hair is now left in a kind of cone/egg head shape. Is it wise to just let this grow or go back and ask for more to be taken off layered/textured? I do have naturally thick hair but is somewhat thinner than it used to be due to thyroid problems.

It is such a shame when hairdressers donít listen to their clients as some can tend to just do what they want to do instead of taking into consideration what is going to suit the individual in their chair. Hair is so emotive and can make your day if done well but if done badly it can ruin it! I think you should have a go at growing your hair again, Leave it for a few months and get yourself booked into a good salon. You mentioned that your hair is dry and course so it is important to keep it moisturised as much as possible. The Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment stops scalp irritation and moisturises to encourage growth whilst minimizing breakage.
