Lucy asks:
I saw a response from Lee with regarding to getting rid of red. I have recently dyed my hair from natural ash blonde with highlights to med brown which turned it orange. So I put the red back in, in the form of a chestnut turning it deep red. Now even with an ash I cannot remove the colour but I know it can be done as a friend once did it years ago. I just cannot afford a salon and I am no longer in contact with this friend. Please if there is anything I can do to turn this red into some kind of brown?

I am really sorry but you really do need to go and see the professionals otherwise you will end up ruining your hair! If money is an issue, why not see if they have model days? I am sure they would love to work with you as a case study for colour correction.

Emma Pearson asks:
A couple of months ago I dyed my hair at home with a permanent dye but I did not like the colour as it was too red for me. So I dyed it again with a brown thinking it would cover the reddish tone but instead it was just far to dark. I then went to my hairdressers who gave me a light bleach bath and an ash tone to dull down the red etc. This did help a lot but after a few weeks the red was showing again as people started commenting on the "foxy" colour it was. So when I had my hair done this time she did a dark chocolate brown colour and its ok but I can still see red and its very dark. I just want to have a light chocolate brown colour and no red. My hair is long and in great condition, it is naturally a medium brown. Please can you tell me what I should ask the hairdresser to do next time? Please advise how it will affect the condition of my hair.

As I am sure your hairdresser has explained, red is a very hard colour to remove and unfortunately it may always come through another colour. An option you may like to discuss with your colourist is to dissolve the colour from your hair. I am not sure which colour manufacturer your salon uses, but if she is a L'Oreal customer then they will be familiar with the Efassor colour correction, this will remove artificial colour molecules. Once the colour has been dissolved then the colourist can apply a new colour with confidence. However, please note this is only available through professional hair salons and don't try to remove colour yourself.

Nadia asks:
I am thinking of getting a perm but I want a really loose wave (no tight curls) my hair is quite frizzy and has a really messy curl/wave to it, is a perm right for me, will it make my hair more frizzy and bushy? My hairdressers do half head perms & Redken perms I wondered what they mean and are they right for me.

I am not sure that getting a perm is right for you. It may be better to use styling products that will add moisture to your hair and enhance the curl. Do not use anti-frizz products as they tend to contain silicone and cause product build up. You are much better off using a good moisturising product and a good liquid styling lotion. This will enhance and define your curls and also reduce the amount of frizz.
