Marie asks:
I have been having my brown hair highlighted with fine blonde streaks for about a year, but on the last salon visit they put in thick highlights and had to recolour with brown to thin them out. Now my hair is very dry and feels rough when wet. I have an appointment for a cut but do not know whether to let them recolour. It was done in late October and I have been putting it off since.

Well the best advice that I could give you is when you go back to the salon perhaps get them to do a strand test this would tell you if its condition is suitable. Also you should be treating your hair with a good conditioner or treatment. I can suggest a good one which is J.F. Lazartigue moisturizing mask. However if the colour is right now perhaps your hairdresser should only touch up the roots

Barbara asks:
I have dyed my hair blonde for many years now using a branded home colour. One day I decided to go too a top hairdressers and have my roots/regrowth done there. After paying over 100 pounds my hair looked like it had been bleached at the top but darker everywhere else. As my hair has grown this thick band of lighter colour keeps moving down my hair. How can I keep my hair blonde but ensure that it is all one colour? I am scared of applying my home colour to this band incase it goes even lighter.

Oh dear, I am afraid that you will really need to return to the hairdressers to sort this problem as it will mean that your hair will be lighter in areas if you just apply a colour all over. It is not something I would advise you try to do at home. It is frustrating but in the long run the best way. The salon will have to apply a full head of colour but blend into the un-even areas. You should visit a salon for a consultation and ask them how they would achieve an all over colour.

Jayne asks:
I am naturally a dark brown-black colour. I have been colouring my hair red for a few years now, I last had it coloured about 6-7mths ago but also had high lights at the same time, can I dye my hair brunette now without causing any adverse reactions?

With any colouring I would always strongly advice visiting your local hair salon and speaking to a colourist for a consultation. With so many colours on your hair there may be a chance of patching where it does not all take and the old blonde highlights may make the hair lighter in areas. It may be an idea for your colourist to strip your hair colour so you can start from fresh. I would suggest you start to condition your hair with a deep conditioner a couple of times a week to get it at its optimum before you think about re-colouring.
