laura asks:
I have purple hair at the moment but I am getting married next August. I was blonde when I met my fiancÚ about 4 years ago. It was a home dye blonde Garnier colour 1.10 I think. Anyway about 2 years ago I dyed my hair red with a swartzkopf live colour, then 12 months ago I dyed it purple again with a swartzkopf live colour - cyber purple. I would really like to be back blonde for the wedding without ruining my hair which is quite long and in good condition - surprisingly! Can I do this without stripping my hair, as one hairdresser advised this but I do not like the idea. Can I not go brown 1st then gradually go lighter? Please help!

It seems you have had quite a combination of colour on your hair in recent years and without seeing you and doing a strand and skin test I would want to recommend that you visit a good salon in your area for a colour consultation and be advised by the colour expert. If you try colouring at home you could have a disaster which might damage your hair prior to your wedding. Good Luck

If your scalp is flaking so much and so regularly, perhaps it might be a good idea to visit a Trichologist. They can help diagnose the condition of your scalp and the best way to treat it. You can find them in your yellow pages or search in our directory for the nearest consultant. Your doctor might be able to help also. ...More >

Prior to that you could however look at a few things like
a) changing your shampoo. Perhaps your hair has become conditioned to the shampoo you are currently using. Try a good quality dandruff shampoo.
b) scalp treatment for dry skin. Some of your chemist stock none greasy product that you can use on your scalp to help reduce or calm this problem.
c) Drink a lot more water, when your skin is drying in any particular area it could be due to hydration. d) try your health shop for natural products for skin, hair and nails. They might also do some good natural shampoo that may suit you better. You could be reacting to some of the chemicals in the commercial shampoos.
e) try not to wash your hair so often, especially if you are not using a gentle shampoo designed for everyday use.

One or more of the above combination should help you to resolves your situation in the medium term.

Ruby asks:
I have waist length brown hair but I have wanted it ash blonde for ages. I have tried going to a salon to have it highlighted many times but it still is not that pale blonde that I want. I have been told that I should not have an all over bleach because my hair is so long it will get severely damaged, I have thought bout getting blonde extensions or weaves put in but I do not know much about them. Please help me get that long rapunzel blonde hair that I so want.

It would seem as though your issue is one of colour and not length or volume. I would recommend going to a salon that specialises in colouring long hair. They will be a bit more expensive, but it will be worth it because they will be able to deliver what you want without damaging your hair. Not all salons specialise in this so ask to see some evidence of their work. Hair extensions can help to give you highlights, but they would also add volume. This could render your hair too thick and unmanageable. There is also the added risk that if they are not removed properly, you could end up with hair loss which, in turn could thin out your hair. I would seek a consultation with a specialist first of all.
