Michelle asks:
I am 42, on HRT tablets and suffer with Rosacea so have very sensitive skin and scalp. I have mousey brown hair styled in a bob and it is greasy. I tend to use a multi-lights kit to add a bit of colour but the last time I used it I left it in too long and some of the colour is yellow which I do not like. How can I get rid of this colouring? Is there a mild type of dye I can use which will not irritate my skin or scalp?

You obviously colour your hair at home and unfortunately things can go wrong. It is very hard to diagnose this via e-mail, but I will try. Most colours in the shops contain quite strong chemicals and may well irritate your scalp - they can also be misleading as some will say shampoo in which suggested that it is mild and will automatically shampoo out NOT THE CASE. You need to tone the Yellow by using a toner to neutralize it but this will be difficult as it must be a violet based colour and you will not be able to choose the right one in the shops. My sound advice is to do the following. Go to a professional salon as a client or a model evening and have them correct it for you. Salons will normally have three types of colours - Permanent - Demi-colours (more gentle on the hair and scalp) and Semi-Permanent colours (these create beautiful tones but do wash out within 3 weeks). Get the salon to do a Skin Test on all the colouring products to see if you react before having any service. You can up keep your main colour at home with the guidance of the salon but if you want any Highlights please do this in the salon not at home. Good luck

Amna asks:
I am 16 years old and i found 2 grey hairs on my head and since my hair is black it is really noticeable. I pulled one of them out and I was told that double the amount of grey hairs will now grow back is this true? Why am I getting grey hairs so young can I stop it somehow. I thought I was too young!

I do believe that it is an OLD WIFES TALE that you get two more grey hairs when you pull one out. Obviously it is quite a shock at your age to be noticing grey hair, yet TWO is nothing to worry about. If I were you I would carry on carefully removing the ODD grey hair that appears. Unfortunately you cannot stop them and I would not recommend colouring all your hair for the TWO grey hairs showing. ...More >

If you do start to notice more grey hair coming through then shampoos with small amounts of staining colour in them are great for disguising grey hair. So too are coloured mousses. Your hair can change colour at any time as our bodies and complexed indeed. One example: my aunt was white grey all her life and during the sixties see had what looked like bleached hair Very Vogue at the time as you can imagine, yet when she turned 60 her hair started to naturally go brown.

Colour pigment in you hair and you skin can change but I do not believe at this moment you have any need to be unduly concerned.

Angela asks:
Have you heard of coil links done strand by strand and how safe are they claimed to be?

Diane ShawAnswered By:

Yes we have. There are over 34 different types of hair extension/enhancement techniques. All of which have been designed to suit different hair types, life styles, durability and economical preferences. ...More >

Most hair extension techniques which are non invasive if applied by a properly qualified and experience technician and maintained within the correct time span should not cause your hair or scalp to deteriorate. I must however advise that if the technician is not properly trained to remove any form of strand by strand technique or if the client attempts to remove them or unpick them themselves, then this is where most of the problem sets in.

It is also worth checking out if the coils are silicon coated, this will help to avoid any rust or chemical reaction when they come into contact with some of the commercial hair care products.
