Katie asks:
I have dyed my hair many times over the past few years - I have been light brown, dark brown, black and all shades of red. My natural colour is a blonde colour and Iíd like to go back to it. Whatís the best was to go about it? I am thinking of having the colour stripped by an expert hairdresser, then dying it a shade similar to my natural one. What do you think?

Providing you go to an expert salon in colour correction you should be able to change your colour. As to it coming out close to your natural colour then this could be tricky. ...More >

I would make sure you ask for a strand test doing beforehand so you can make sure your colour comes out as you wish.

Also check the condition of the strand test after the colour correction to ensure it still looks healthy, it is my experience that this is a tricky process and it can affect your hair condition drastically.

By having the strand test done first you will see the result before you have your whole head done.

Better to be safe than sorry.

Kim asks:
I have thick hair it was cut into a razored layered bob and on one side into a vertical look its chin length on the sides and the other side is a little vertical but like the other side. As it grows it looks bad and every time I get it trimmed they make the problem worse. What can I do to help it, it looks uneven, one side looks longer and one side looks shorter thanks

First thing! Look for another hairdresser or some one who knows what they are actually doing. It is not the tools it is the person carrying out the work causing the problem.

Find a new stylist and get it sorted.

Dry hair, a dry scalp, flaking scalp and dandruff are the result of one or more elements depleting your bodyís natural oils before they can reach your skin and hair. Getting back your healthy scalp and hair will likely mean making a change in your daily cosmetic regime, your diet and taking better steps to protect yourself from drying influences. In extreme cases, seeking professional help might also be an option. Here are some of the most common causes of dry hair and scalp: ...More >

Harmful chemicals found in cheap and over-used hair products over processing of hair and roots after chemical treatment Harmful cosmetic habits, like twenty minutes under the blow-dryer and curling iron overexposure to harsh weather, especially cold winter air braiding or corn rowing which is too tight and is constantly pulling on the hair root. Allergic to synthetic fibre which is used to cornrow hair a diet lacking in necessary vitamins dehydration not taking in enough fluids like water. An untreated skin condition, such as eczema, psoriasis, or seborrhoea dermatitis changes in your hormones which often change the way your hair and nails behave

I think the best way to begin is to examine the recent changes you have made which resulted in your scalp becoming dry and flaky. It would seem to me that your braids are also too tight which could result in traction alopecia.

Try to relieve any stress points on the hair, take in more liquids, and use a quality shampoo and conditioner and take some vitamins.
