I asked my hairdresser to freshen up my hair colour last week by giving me light blonde highlights using foils. I am a natural blonde however I wanted it a little brighter. As soon as the foils were applied to my hair they heated up straight away and some even exploded? I have also had experience of my hair having a slightly green shade to it and green patches at the back of my crown. My hair no longer seems to be green but I do not understand why the colour will not take to my hair. Is there any products I can buy to apply to my hair or anything my hairdresser can do as we are both confused as to what can be affecting my hair like this??

I would always advise a strand test before colouring your hair. The only reasonable explanation I could give you for this is that your hair contains some sort of metallic salts. Have you ever applied any colour or Henna to your hair that may contain metallic salts? If you have not, it could be that the water pipes coming into your hoes have some sort of metallic contamination that is affecting your hair and leaving deposits on it. We once had a similar case but as we test the hair first we were OK. It was very confusing as our client had not applied anything to her hair. We checked everything and eventually that client had her home water checked and thats what it was!

I had my hair done for my sisters wedding, my sister wanted me to have it pulled back with long curls falling down my back, after several tries, I still had straight hair, the curls would be falling out before I got out the door. The hairdresser said that I have problem hair and I will never be able to have curls. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it, can anyone tell me if there is anything I can do to make my problem hair hold curls?

It is true that some hair is more resistant to being curled but we have never had anyone whose curls are coming out before they leave the salon. We do a technique with GHD irons and GHD products where the curls that we achieve would definitely stay in for a couple of hours at least. It does take quite a while to do but the results are fabulous. Is your hair coloured? Sometimes if your hair is resistant and with no colour it does make it more difficult to curl. Colour tends to soften resistant hair and make is easier to mould. You could also look to have some movement put in your hair with a soft perm result if you are looking to have permanent curls.

I coloured my hair last night to dark brown from caramel highlights. When I first got caramel highlights my hair was a faded dark brown having previously coloured it about 4 months before. Will I have to wait until my hair is faded until I can get caramel highlights again as I really do not like the colour my hair has gone.

We would never recommend anyone to colour their own hair because it really is a lottery as to the result you achieve. Lots of people think it is like painting a wall and you simply paint on and that is the colour you get. Because everybody has different tones in their hair this then depends on the result you get. I would advise you to go to a professional salon and have a consultation to see what can be achieved; we would always do a strand test at this point to check what sort of colour can be achieved and also the strength of your hair and how it will work with colour. The reason we do this is because some home colours are really intense and very difficult to lift or colour over. Having said that we can always improve any colour. Why not visit a salon, have a consultation and then take it from there.
