Gracie asks:
I have been colouring and highlighting my hair since I was 13. I have no clue as to what my natural colour is, except that it is somewhere between a medium and dark brown. I have always loved playing dress-up with my hair and am constantly changing it. Right now it has platinum blonde, dark blonde, red, and dark brown highlights all through out. But lately I have been getting bored with it all and have been considering going back to one colour, preferably my natural colour (or as close as I can get to it.) Everyone’s telling me not to do it, that it will damage my hair, and I won’t like it. And my colourist says she will not do. That it would be very difficult since I have so many contrasting colours and she does not want to ruin my hair. Is this true? Is there really no way to go back to all one colour besides just letting it grow out? I have been growing my hair long for a couple years now and it is finally at a length that I love. It would take forever to let the colour grow out and I am NOT going to cut it. But I also do not want to completely damage it by being stubborn and doing something to it that everyone is telling me not to do! I do not care how much it would cost, I would be willing to pay just about anything... is there ANY way to go to my natural colour without frying my hair???

WOW your doing too much to that poor hair of yours, it would be very difficult for your colourist to do your natural colour, as you do not even know what it is. I would like to suggest perhaps you go for a rich chocolate brown, you could do that by using a rich colour semi permanent colour with minimum damage of the hair. As for the hair condition let me suggest a really good regime, all these products are by J F Lazartigue, Pre Shampoo Treatment with Shea Butter. Shampoo with collagen (this would restore all the little cracks from chemical damage) and finally a Moisturising conditioner. This is a really great regime I use in my salon and it always works wonders. Do not forget to send a before and after picture!

Joanne asks:
My natural hair colour is medium brown and I have always used home hair dyes and have gone for chestnut colours I have also used glue in (bonded) hair extensions and I have had these for 3 years and love them! I decided that I wanted to go blonde so I used a hair stripper and then hair dyes and finally after a week of hard work it went blonde but a very yellowish warm blonde. I went to the salon and he did not want to touch it and gave me Schwarzkopf professional bonacure hair therapy true silver shampoo, which came out like purple ink and I must say it toned my yellow hair brilliantly but my ends stayed a purple colour. I went back to my salon and he did not want to touch my hair again! I put a summer blonde all over and it worked yet it was still yellowish and I want more like a Sienna or Alex Curren blonde rather than a cheap yellow colour.. I kept it for about 2-3 weeks and already my roots were through! I found a love blonde colour which I wanted by Garnier 100% colour which was lightest ash blonde so I put it on and it is now grey all over! I feel depressed now and worn out with it all, I went to the salon and again he would not touch it! So I went to 2 other salons and they too will not touch my hair. Its not in really bad condition either believe it or not! I have always been good with my hair and never had drastic problems like this but now I am getting tired of it all!! Is there any home remedies or hair colours I can use to get this grey out! Please do not tell me to go to a salon and get it done properly or to find someone to do it professionally for me as I cannot afford it as I have spent enough already and I cannot find anyone to touch it! Can you please give me advise on how I can get from this grey to a blonde because I am stubborn and I do not want to give up and chuck a chestnut hair dye all over, I feel that I have come this far and need to be blonde and get my extensions back in!

I really think you need to give your hair a break from all this colouring! Hairdressers are professionals and have trained for many years to become experts and really do know what they are talking about. When you highlight or go blonde, then the downside is that your roots will show through and you will need to maintain them regularly. I am sorry but I would only be able to advice you to seek professional help - if money is an issue, then see about student nights/days and be a colour correction case-study. Hair extensions will only be applied to hair that is in good condition, again your hairdresser will advice if your hair in its current condition is suitable for extensions. Have you tried to speak to the Garnier helpline about this? They may be able to advice you. Sorry but as a professional hairdresser, I would only be able to advice you to seek professional help.

Sue asks:
How can I make my hair grow it always seems the same length when I get a trim my hair seems to stop at one length HELP!

Diane ShawAnswered By:

I have worked with many ladies who claim to have a similar problem. So they decide to try hair extensions to give them the immediate length they want. We usually apply the extensions using the integrated weave technique, this does not damage your hair but it does encourage three things if you follow our guidelines a) Rests your hair and helps improve the condition through the conditioning regime we recommend in order to keep your hair extensions from drying out. b) You start to visible see hair growth each month every time the weft is retightened. c) Your new growth is thicker virgin hair that has not been treated with colouring etc. You can grow your own hair quite long at the back before you decide to start treating it with any chemical. You can successfully do this because the hair extension technique we recommend hides your new re-growth. Have a look at our website to see a step by step on the application of the integrated weave we did for Miss England.
