Lindsey asks:
I am a 23 white female. I just got sew in extensions for the first time. I have red bumps along my hairline because the corn rows are too tight (I think). Once the sew ins are removed will the red bumps go away?

Congratulations on having sewn in extensions for the first time. However they should not have been done so tight so as to cause red bumps in the first place. This is a sign that the cornrow is far too tight and is adding pressure to your hair roots especially as this is your first time. You have done well to withstand the pressure which is not good for your hair line. However they will become loose but I would not recommend you have them put in as tightly again.

The red bumps should start to disappear once they have been removed, but ideally the red bumps should have disappeared by now. Try spraying some none oily leave in conditioner on the inflamed area. If the bumps have not disappeared whilst the extensions are in, then I recommend you have them removed. One of the better techniques is the Hook and Latch which uses no glue, cornrow or threads.

Jennifer asks:
I have successfully used bleach highlight kit from South Africa for 20 years but canít get hold of it at the moment. Can you recommend one in the UK that I could use at home. My hair is dark brown is Jerome Russell any good?

I have heard of Jerome Russell but unfortunately I know nothing about it. Try visiting a salon and ask about their training days. You would get a professional result at a fraction of the cost.

AB asks:
My hair is naturally strawberry blonde I have been dyeing it a rich dark brown for the last 3 years (Boots own brand) always looked good, but my roots were coming through blonde went to my hairdresser and asked to keep colour but put some blonde highlights in, she stripped the dark brown out (hair went orange!) she then put another colour on it went a honey blonde colour (do not like it) by the look on her face I think she could not be bothered to do any more (it did take 3 hrs!). This was 5 weeks ago can I safely put my dark colour back on or should I attempt to go blonder, which was the original plan?

PLEASE PLEASE go get a professional colour correction consultation from a good salon. As always ask for strand tests to be done so that YOU see the result you would get before proceeding. Colour correction is a job for a professional and anyone giving you true advice would need to see your hair. ...More >

Seek out a good colour technician and get it sorted.
