Amber asks:
I have naturally dirty blonde hair, but I am thinking about dying it a medium brown with burgundy highlights. I also have blonde eyes, with a round face and my hair is medium length, do you think this colour will look bad? And what kind of cut should I get?

Hi Amber - for me I would rather see you as a deep chestnut first, which is a warm colour and then see how that looks on you. If after that, you feel you might want to do more, and then add fine highlights in a very deep deep copper. The hair cut, keep it long and smooth maybe longer heavy Bangs. Jason

Helen asks:
Question: I have fine fair hair, which I wash daily. Itís a little wavy and quite dry. A week ago my roots suddenly clagged. When my hair has dried (I let it dry naturally), the roots are stuck together in clumps, and still look wet. It looks awful and feels awful, and even though Iíve tried medicated shampoos (including tea-tree), it isnít getting any better. Iím 35, not pregnant, on the pill and donít have children. Could this be hormonal or something else? Itís never happened before, and I donít know what to do!

Hi Helen - I canít see any reason for this at all, you need to trace back! Did you change the products you were using (shampoos, conditioners) if so maybe you need to go back to them? Could it be a styling product thatís doing it? Did you change your pillow cases from cotton to a synthetic kind? The other option is to go see your doctor.

Lucy asks:
My hair is naturally mousy brown/dark blonde, my hairdresser was over bleaching it, so I asked for a more nut/cappuccino brown colour to go with my remaining blonde highlights. I ended up with all over deep mahogany red, and have since been spending loads and struggling to regain my natural hair, to no avail. We tried a colour lift treatment which took away some of the red, but not much and then put blonde highlights through the top to lighten it up, which is more bearable. But I really want to go back to my natural colour or a hazel brown base colour with my existing blonde highlights. I really donít know what to do for the best. If I can do it myself with a home dye of sorts fine, as I seem to be throwing good money after bad trying to get it fixed..

Sorry you have been experiencing difficulty getting to a natural colour, which really is not usually difficult to do. I am not sure what happened but I think, when you asked for a nut brown thatís where a stylist might think of chestnut brown and maybe thatís why you ended up with the mahogany brown (which is a cool red/brown to me a colourist). I am not sure if your stylist filled your hair first because it was a very light blonde, the filler would consist of a gold and copper and then putting a brown colour on top of the filler and this method is the correct way to colour hair back to natural. Maybe that is why you are seeing red, but it would not be mahogany (cool red) but a warm golden brown, close to the hazel brown you are referring to. I am not sure what you now have left, after the removal but it really is not difficult to cancel out the red tone in your hair with a ash tone color, although now due to the red being there you might have to keep neutralizing the red as it may keep coming back on a lighter level but you should be okay to do that when you have your highlights done. The only way I can help you is to suggest that you take as many images/pictures or examples of what brown you would like to achieve and have a discussion with the stylist/colorist so they can explain what is possible and if you feel confident in the discussion continue with the stylist. I do want to explain that it is very difficult to exactly match natural hair as usually natural hair is ash and cool in appearance and coloured hair is warmer unless at darker levels due to the lifting process whilst colouring but I really feel you are wanting a warmer brown so you should not be having this difficulty. I really can not suggest more as I am not there to see the situation in person and I wouldnít want to give you the wrong advice, I hope the above information helps you.
