DJ asks:
Hi, I wanted to curl my hair, so I got natural wave perming done.

The first day, it was wavy enough and i liked it, but the next day the waves became so loose and my hair became frizzy. I had done permanent straightening 2 years back and cysteine treatment 1 year back. Itís been a week since I got perming done and my hair looks really bad. Itís frizzy and neither curly nor straight. My natural hair is better than this!

Iím thinking of getting my hair chemically straightened again, but Iím afraid my hair will get damaged. How long should I wait before chemically straightening my hair after perming?

Okay no more chemical treatments invest in some professional hair care, moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and treatment. Try and decided if you want wavy or straight and stick to a very strict hair care regime for a month to try and encourage the best out of your hair. Use a treatment masque x per week, follow the instructions to the rule, comb through before rinsing and then make sure you use either a smoothing balm or curl enhancing cream before blow drying. Take your time with a diffuser or a really good pure bristle paddle brush and you will find that your hair will respond well. ...More >

Once your hair is back into great condition you will be able to wear it curly sometimes and smooth sometimes. You have to have great conditioned hair and the correct styling tools then practice makes perfect.

Good luck

Hi Sharon

Well done for using the clarifying shampoo, make sure you use a treatment mask once a week for the next month that is able to internal reconstruct and repair the hair, I love the Redken, Joico and Nioxin. Use conditioner afterwards and make sure you comb through before rinsing out. Use a spray on leave in moisturising conditioner as well. If youíre really worried take a supplement temporarily and also check out the ego therapy cold treatment iron as I think it would really benefit you. Good luck

Sarah asks:
Hi there,

I was wondering, well hoping, for a little advice please? I have been using B-Blondeís highlighting kit over a dark blonde / light brown base, with great results. However, I (stupidly) used a different product to bring up my roots (Líoreal) which at the time, I hadnít realised the significance of white Vs blue bleach, and I ended up with *very* yellow hair; I didnít panic (as I did years ago & give myself a chemical haircut) & after trying Provoke Touch of Silver shampoo to bring it down, I put a semi-perm platinum toner over it for 10 minutes which took the edge off but I was still an unpleasant shade of yellow.

I let it settle & then used the high-lift blue powder & 30% developer from B-blonde which although has lessened the worst of the bright yellow, has left my hair with the well-known banana skin yellow shade for the most of it, with some whiter streaks (around a 10, plus the yellow!).

I want it to be a more natural shade of blonde / blondes so was looking at my options. Unfortunately, I am not currently in a†position to go to the salon I was considering using a demi-perm as either a base & then use lowlights over the top in a couple or so shades, or to leave the base & just put a demi-perm toner over strands pulled through a highlighting cap to give it some colour & make it less íin your faceí. It wouldnít be *as* bad if it was white all over (although I had this several years ago when I was younger..!) but the yellowy tinge just isnít my style!

My hair fortunately is still in good condition & I have been soaking it in protein masks & conditioners, plus always use argan oil etc after washing - I donít blow-dry or straighten it either, and it does still look in good condition & feels good to the touch.

It is made slightly more difficult in that I have short hair at the back but is much longer on top - if that makes any difference?

Anyway, Iíve babbled a lot, so, please could you help? There is a Sallyís store down the road so Iím hoping to get the appropriate shades & developer from there but obviously would really appreciate some help along the way?!

Thanks ever so much for reading this in the first place!

Best wishes, Sarah

Hi Sarah

You seem to know what you are doing, I would suggest the easiest way to sort is to add a cool base demi all over, then 2 separate applications with the highlight cap of very low developer Bleach formula, and process for different amount of time in order to achieve 2 different shades. Keep up your treatment regime and revert back to your usual application once ready to do your roots. I would always recommend you go to the salon for something like this but I aware thatís not possible, so really good luck.
