Ellie asks:
I have very thick light brown/dark blonde shoulder length hair which is quite wavy, but does not look good naturally, so I either mousse or straighten it. However, it always goes rather wavy towards the end of the day. How can I keep the style through the day? I have had blonde highlights, which I like, and now I would like to dye it a medium blonde colour. Would this look ok? Is there anything else I could do to my hair?

Dear Judith:
It could be different causes why your hair its going green, generally blonde hair can show ''acid'' colours easier than darker colours, that is because hair its absorbent and absorbs minerals and salts from the water like it could be chlorine or copper oxide. To remove this, you need to get liquid 30 volumes peroxide and soak the hair with it and watch it till disappear, then apply it to the hair and finish it with a clarifying shampoo cover this one with a plastic cap and bake it under the dryer for about 15 minutes, condition and treat the hair.

Maureen asks:
I am sixty and want to stop dying my hair should I have a boy hair cut? What do you advice?

Firstly Maureen, why stop colouring your hair because you are sixty? Have you not heard? Sixty is the new fifty! As for a boy hair cut, short hair like a boy only suits clients with very small faces so if this is you go for it! My advice would be to go to a professional hair salon and have a consultation on what would suit you. I also think if you are used to having your hair coloured it will not seem the same if you try growing it out. If you normally have a full head colour you could go half way and have some beautiful lowlights through to make your hair look great! Good Luck Maureen & happy hair!

Marion asks:
I had some low lights about 2 months ago that reacted with a henna colour I had put in my hair ( I did not realise this would happen) so the hairdresser put an all over colour on to cover up the green. This has now faded and I am left with a thick band of greenish tinge at the back of my head. I have spent the last couple of years growing my hair and do not want to have it cut short again. The salon did a strand test to see if I could have another colour but it reacted badly. They said my hair would be worse. Please help! Is there anything I can do to neutralise the green or that I can use to cover it. It is also now really dry (my hair is naturally dry and wavy anyway so this is a nightmare!) I am now tying my hair back in a ponytail every day to disguise the problem.

Henna is a progressive dye that stays in the hair until it grows out, even if it looks as if it has completely faded. There is nothing you can do but use lots of conditioning treatments and gradually have the henna coloured hair cut off. Because of this problem I never recommend clients to use Henna on their hair at home.
