Lynn asks:
Iíve been colouring my hair to hide the grey since my mid-twenties. At first I used shades to maintain what was then my natural colour - dark brown with a chestnut tinge, but for the past 5 Ė 6 years Iíve been gradually using lighter shades and itís now light ash brown. Now Iíve reached my fifties, Iím considering giving in to nature. I keep seeing women with beautiful grey hair and think it wouldnít be so bad to join them! Trouble is, when my roots show I can see the front of my hair is almost completely light grey while the back and sides are darker grey mixed with some brown. If I simply stop colouring itís going to be an unflattering patchwork of different colours while the dye fades and grows out, and Iím not sure if the natural mixed grey underneath will be an improvement. Iíve recently switched from using permanent to semi-permanent colours as my hair is also becoming very dry. Is it possible to ígo greyí artificially? I donít want to go blonde and would be worried about using strong bleaches. My hair is almost shoulder length now but I wouldnít mind having it cut a bit shorter. Any suggestions - other than buying a wig - will be gratefully received!

I understand why you might consider going natural and I wished I could give you some promising suggestions but you only have three options and I feel you know them all, the first option is to grow out the colour, yes it will look undesirable whilst doing it, but switching to a true semi permanent will help you through the transition. Your second option is to take your darker hair grey and in order to do that you would need to bleach your hair to white and then use a grey toner, yes this could be damaging depending on how much previous colour you have on your hair and the grey toner would fade, so you would have to maintain the toner on a regular basis, I feel you already question if your hair can handle being bleached to that lighter level so I would assume your instincts to be correct and your last option like you said is purchasing a wig or putting in hair pieces (you might like the pieces better as it would be a transition into the grey and you can place more or less where you need them and it would be more natural than a wig although they are very costly to do). Sorry I can not give you any other suggestions good luck.

I have got long hairs which are very difficult to manage, my hair is frizzy, curly I canít do any style so I just tie it up. Could you solve my problem without using iron or dryer!

Every hairstyle has to have some time spent on it (apart from mine that is!). If you would like to wear it curly and control the unruliness of it I would suggest having a weave cut that provides layers within your hair cut of varying lengths. This is a fantastic way of bringing the best out of curly hair and providing more control. Mix together conditioner and gel in your hand (small amounts of each) and apply sparingly to you hair with your fingers. Then comb through and shake your hair to establish the curl. Either leave to dry naturally or use a diffuser if you do not have time. If you do like your hair straight then I would recommend a professional platform iron . I know you do not want to have to use an electrical product but this product will breeze through your hair. Your hair does not have to be totally dry it can be damp. Please slide the iron through each section in a slow smooth operation that we call ONE PASS. This will allow the re-conditioning properties of the product to moisturise and add immaculate shine. Not only will your hair look fabulous but it will last quite a few days. As straightening irons go the NEW FHI with Nano Fuzeion technology will actually care for your hair compared to other products and definitely help eliminate your problems.

It sounds to me like you need to change your hairdresser. If it never turns out how you want it there is something wrong. You need someone how is more expert and listens and understands the style you want. Find another salon. ...More >
