Debbie asks:
Is tint better for your hair than bleach? I had my hair highlighted a couple of months ago using bleach. I was initially happy with the result, but as I use my straighteners too, some of the hair around my hairline has broken off! I would like to have more highlights, but am scared this will further damage my hair. Can you please give me some professional advice?

Tint is kinder to your hair than bleach but depending on the naturalcolour of your hair depends how light you can go with tint. It may be that bleach is the only thing to achieve your desired result. You also need to apply a product through your hair to protect it from the heat of the irons. Continuous use of the irons without using products could cause your hair to break. Use a thermal protector to look after your hair when using irons.

Amie asks:
I have been dyeing my hair for the past few years, I am naturally very dark brown but I dye my hair red, but it always fades or turns what I call ginger or dodge brown. I want my hair to be a powerful proper red, so I was thinking about bleaching my hair first, washing it a few times and leaving it a few days before dyeing it red. Would that work? I have a friend who said he turned proper ginger when he tried bleaching and dyeing in the same day? If I do this do I need to leave it a few weeks before getting highlights and low lights? I am a student so I canít really afford a whole head colour in a salon as I am having my hair cut and high lights and low lights put in soon which is costly anyway.

Do not pre lighten your hair!

Otherwise each time you want to retouch your root area you will have to have the same process, this will cost you extra money. ...More >

If you have your hair pre lightened first you will find your red fades much faster as your hair will be more porous due to the lightening process.
What I would recommend is having the lightest vibrant red shade you can as a permanent colour as a full head application, with woven highlights introduced. After the highlights have been introduced you could have a vibrant red stainer applied, like Sebastian Colourshines as this will increase the tone of not only your highlights, but the overall full head red colour on the rest of your hair.

The colour shine product is also fantastic for refreshing your tone and will not affect the condition, in fact it will help the condition.

Adele asks:
I have shoulder length hair and its very thick so I bought thinning scissors but they ruined my hair and now I have lots of unwanted layers in my hair is it possible to get extensions to make all my hair the same length and can you tell me how much that would cost?

Cutting your own hair is a big mistake as you have found out. Introducing hair extensions will not resolve the problem so I feel they would be a waste of your money invested into rectifying the problem you have. ...More >

Visit a good professional salon near your home town and have a consultation, explain your problem and they should be able to resolve the situation you have at the moment.

Thinning scissors are a great tool to work with in the right hands and used in the correct way. As you have found out used wrongly they can cause many problems.
