Hi Melissa

Its very difficult the create curls that last on long fine hair, but my suggestion is make sure your hair is freshly shampooed and you have only conditioned the ends of the hair. Once you hair is dry spray some dry shampoo all through the root area. Then section the hair carefully and curl with what ever tool you find easiest to use. Once you have curled the section and you should only need to have the wand/ iron in the hair for about 10 seconds, wrap the curl you have created around your fingers and use a hair grip to secure it at the root. Heat creates shape and cool fixes it so by gripping the curls you allow the hair to cool down which helps fix it. Leave foe at least 5 mins spay again with dry shampoo or a very dry hairspray before releasing the clips and then shake out your hair gently. I think this should really help.





Natasha asks:
I am a natural redhead but have been dying my hair black for around 12 years now. As it looks horrendous when the roots come through I tend to dye my hair with a home dye every fortnight. I am now looking to go back to my natural colour (I know after stripping it will need to be dyed a close match). The salon advised they would use effasor to do it, do you think this would be the best method or is there a better way given the frequency with the amount of years it has been dyed?

Natasha you have been given the correct advice a colour remover would be the best way and then a low ammonia colour as close to your natural colour. Its doesnít matter so much how many years you have been colouring your hair unless you never have it cut. The difficulty is achieving an even result when stripping the colour on longer hair when it has been applied and combed through over and over again. I would go back to the salon that advised you and good luck on going back natural.







Jessie asks:
I have dyed my hair red in the past for 3 months and then dyed my hair black quite soon after the red, I have had black hair for 2 months and the red hair dye is still washing out underneath the black. I would like to return back to my blonde hair in the least amount of time possible, just would like to know how I go from black to blonde again

Wow Jessie this is going to be a tough one and one that really does require a professional. A decolorant is the best way I think followed by some additional highlights until the hair is the desired result for you. It wonít be a one step process and the length and condition of your hair have to be taken into account as you want to have an even good conditioned result. Go and ask a local salon for a free consultation.
