Lowri asks:
I went to my hairdressers and requested an ombre colour and the result is awful Ė the top of my hair is brown, the front is black and the bottom is blonde. I want to get the colour corrected asap and achieve a light brown with blonde highlights. Please can you help?

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.

Edna asks:
I would like to ask you, which one is better texturizer or relaxer? What is the difference between lye and no-lye? I texturize my hair but Iím not sure if I should continue texturizing or relaxing?

Both texturisers and relaxers contain chemicals that restructure the hairs natural bonds permanently.

A relaxer is suited to someone who requires poker straight hair and a texturiser is suited to someone who wishes to have a more manageable curl. It can reduce ísí shaped curls to more of a ízí shape. You need to think about what you want in the long run and if itís a more natural look youíre after, my advice would be to stop the chemical treatments.† As for which relaxer is best, again they are both chemicals, so neither is what our hair truly wants. A lye relaxer works quicker to break down the bonds and has a higher PH. A No-lye relaxer is better for sensitive scalps, holds milder chemical ingredients and a slightly lower PH than lye relaxers. Neither one is better; it all depends on the individual. I would visit a reputable salon and have a consultation with a stylist to truly ascertain whatís best for you. ...More >

Cynthia asks:
The hair on the lower side of my head has turned black. I have never dyed my hair before. What do you think is the cause of this?

Your hair is coloured because you have cells that pump pigment into the hair as itís growing.†Usually, as you get older, these pigment cells can get tired and stop pumping colour into your hair, which is why hair often goes grey.

Sometimes, pigment cells take little breaks, so itís perfectly possible for hairs to be different colours along the lengths.†Various medications can cause sudden hair changes, as can prolonged stress, so this could also be a factor.
