I have a 2 level hair colour roots with a lot of grey. I want to do my roots to match the rest of the hair which is very light blonde. I have a lot of red pigment in my hair. I've been doing my hair at home for 15 years and just recently got blonde highlights through my hair to get rid of the brassy look at the back of my hair. I have an option of using Keune 10.7 lightest violet blonde with 40 volume peroxide or 1511 super ash blonde (ultra light) with 40 volume peroxide. I want to make sure my hair does not turn ashy.

You say you are a level 2 with grey. This means you are darkest brown, almost black. Your hair will always throw up an enormous amount of red no matter what colour blonde you use. The first colour you mentioned is a blonde with a violet tone - this helps to neutralize brassy yellow tones, whereas the other colour has a slightly strong ash tone that neutralizes a little more brassy/red tones. I donít think either colour will work particularly well. You need to use a blonde that has a green ash base in it - this really helps to neutralize any red in the hair, especially when you are so dark. Good Luck

I have unbelievably thick, curly, frizzy, uncontrollable hair. If I stood 5 feet away from a wall my hair would touch it. I just cut it up to my shoulders which is turning out not to be the best idea I ever made. I donít exactly want get rid of the curls but the volume is driving me crazy, The only way I can ever get rid of the volume is to straighten it with a flat iron which gives me split ends and eventually looks worse then before, and doing the blow-drying thing seems to do nothing I've thought about cutting my hair really short and sometimes spiking it or a Mohawk I think thatís what its called. But that would be a little scary, seeing as how I'm only 13 and never have cut my hair that short before in my life. I would not mind having it chemically straightened but I have highlights will that cause a problem. What should I do?

The Mohawk style sounds great and could well work for you, you will need to commit to a certain amount of effort with styling but this can be really easy to do. If you are scared that it is too extreme then have a look through hair magazines for examples of softer less dramatic styles that may have a slightly Mohawk look about them but without being too harsh. Visit a local stylist (you can find you nearest at the ĎFind a Saloní section on UKHairdressers.com) for some advice before you do anything, they will advise you on how to control your hair as well as options for cuts and styles and what styling may be required. While you are deciding whether or not to go for the Mohawk, the best way to control frizzy unruly hair is to get some condition back into your hair. Try deep conditioning treatments, TIGIís Treat Me Right intensive conditioner will help put the moisture back into your hair, and a leave-in conditioner such as TIGIís Ego Boost will help protect your hair. Leave-in conditioners are great for curly hair as well as conditioning they help to fight frizz at the same time. Whenever possible have a break from using heated appliances. Heat causes immense damage to your hair and using heat less often you will notice the difference in your hairís condition. If your hair has gone frizzy through the day tame your frizz for an evening out with a defining product such as TIGIís Uptight Curl Maker. Shine sprays are an excellent light product to use on your hair to give it a glossy coating, this helps smooth it and deters the dreaded static and frizz, TIGIís Headrush spray smells gorgeous and is long lasting. Curly hair can be great for creating more wild styles and can be tamed into this seasons trendy wavy and curly looks. If you wish to continue straightening your hair ensure you use a heat protective styling product such as TIGIís Extra Extra Straight or TIGIís Control Freak Serum. Proto-col collagen supplements (taken orally) will also help to avoid poor condition of the hair and promote shine. Donít keep going over the same section again and again, itís better to go over it with the straighteners slowly and get it right first time then keep reapply those hot irons to it, causing more damage in the long run.

My hair is fine to begin with but has been getting much thinner in the last 2/3 years that I have noticed it and maybe that is mostly caused by age (42), but I am wondering what I can do to change that - is there certain vitamins/foods that are recommended? I do not think its at the stage for medical treatment but I just want my hair healthy and to be thicker - it seems like I lose a lot more hair then grows back!! I have used Nioxin hair Products for Fine, chemically enhanced hair but not on a constant basis. I would like to know are they one of the top products to use for thinning hair or is there something better on the market? Are there any consumer reports on Nioxin products?

I have found that professional hair loss products provide great results but I would suggest that you keep using the product. Most of my fellow professional hairstylist do recommend professional products and have had great results on their clients.
