Colette asks:
I dyed my light brown/blonde hair to dark brown about 3 years ago. This has been done both in the hairdressers and with the occasional home kits for touch ups in between. Over the last 10 months the colour has not been holding at the roots well at all. Itís now left me with various layers of colour through my hair from light at the roots down to very dark at the tips. I have asked in various salons about the process off starting to go back to nearer my own colour but no-one seems to know of anything that will work. Iíve been told that if they use a stripping solution that my hair will end up resembling a hair colour chart...not a good look! Another suggestion was highlights but then Iíve been told they probably wonít take properly. Have you any suggestion for what I could do??? I donít mind my hair being dark if thatís what I have to stay with but I hate the lighter looking roots. Help!!

I will try to explain to you the steps black end on hair need to go through to lighten them, bleaching is the only way to lighten your black hair, if you have had it coloured black for 3 years and each time the black being combed to the ends to refresh the hair ends colour, then your hair ends will, not only become prickle sort of a glass fibre feeling to it and will not take any more colour due to that the natural pigment of your hair being over processed and is dead, the only way I would suggest is to cut as much off your ends and maybe consider a new shorter hair cut, Bobs are very fashionable in various length due to the new release of the new Gatsby Film in December. If you decide to go that way, please use a Professional salon, to cut and colour your hair. It should be easier for a good salon to lighten your hair slowly over two or three salon visits, once you decided to cut your hair, giving time between visits for your hair to recover from over colouring black for years. Ask your stylist to recommend you the best possible products to use at home between salon visits. It will be well worth spending money on these after all you live every minute in your life with your hair. Make this a priority and use professional advice. Do spend money on your hair, simply because it is the hair which gets noticed most. shiny well cut and coloured hair can cost as little as £60 every month to well over a few hundred pounds. It all depends what is high on your agenda. Colette, I hope this message will help you a little to decide what your next step will be, I will be interested to hear from you again when you have taken this step. Wishing you fabulous hair days ahead





ITA asks:
I have been dying my hair for years but lately it doesnít seem to be taking in certain patches and doesnít last as long. My hairdresser says itís because I have too much lime in my water and should use bottled water. Is there any other solution or special shampoo I could use?

Pierre AlexandreAnswered By:

Uneven colour results can be caused by numerous things. Yes, a high amount of lime build up can possibly be the reason. However, bad application by the Technician or wrong judgement of colour needs. My advice is to firstly try a detox shampoo such as LíOreal Professional Pure Recourse. If youíre still having problems after 2 weeks you really need to reassess your Salon or perhaps try another Technician as a fresh pair of eyes can sometimes be a blessing.







Piya asks:
I am an Indian with middle length dark brown hair. My hair is very silky but light. The problem is that my scalp is a little oily but my hair is dry. I found it very difficult to choose any product because I am confused whether to buy an oil free shampoo or a moisturising one. Moreover these days I have come to China to spend my summer with my Dad. The weather conditions are totally different from India there is a lot of moisture in the air and also the water here is more chlorinated. The thing which has never happened with me is happening now Ė hair fall and hair breakage. I donít know what to do or which shampoo to use. Please recommend me some good hair products according to my hair type and I would be really obliged if you could give me some tips to take care of my hair this summer.

Pierre AlexandreAnswered By:

I would recommend a shampoo for oily hair maybe LíOreal Professional Pure Resource shampoo, this product removes any sort of build up on the hair and scalp and leaves it at a healthy p.h balance which promotes better stronger regrowth. I would strongly recommend for the middle lengths and ends Phillip Kingsley Elasticiser which will prevent any more breakage and strengthen your hair and leave it bouncy and shiny. These are the products we use at our Manchester salon, of course I am not sure if these products are available in China
