Denise asks:
I am 24, and I have been dying my hair for about two years now, the same colour, Igora Schwarzkopf, 12/1, in the summer my colour is at its best but in the winter it goes really brassy and its always darker underneath and I hate it, is there anything I could put on it to lighten it and have it a white/pearl blonde rather that a dull brassy blonde?

There is nothing wrong with dying your own hair, there are lots of products available today. However from time to time I think it is important to visit a professional hair colouring technician. They are able to assess why your hair changes and apply corrective measure to help give you the colour you want all over. It is worth spending the money to achieve this because in the long run you would have helped yourself to keep your hair in good condition. You might not think that keeping your hair in good condition is vital, at our hair extension & enhancement studio we are helping a lot of women in their late 30's - 60 years enhance their hair by adding extensions for volume and colour alone. Most of them regretting the over processing with chemical in their earlier years. So whenever possible use a professional hairdresser or technician.





Ann Graham asks:
I do not use colourants of any kind on my hair. I had a hairdresser at the house to put my long but fine hair up for a wedding. I had it washed and conditioned ready using my usual products. Just before leaving for the wedding I noticed an unusual smell from my hair much like perming solution or peroxide and there was a tinge of gold almost green in my hair. The next day I washed my hair and the smell was worse and my hair very dry and damaged. The hairdresser said she had not used anything but hairspray on my hair. I was wondering what could have caused my hair to be like this. My daughter who used to be a hairdresser has cut my hair for me says that something has been put on my hair to damage it so much. Can you please help Thank you

Dear Ann, yes this seems very unusual as it sounds like a chemical reaction has occurred causing the hair to become dry ! I can only guess that she may have used a styling product or hair spray that reacted with your products. The reaction will have caused the hair to lift slightly .Do you swim a lot? Build up of chlorine on your hair could react. Do you use a coloured shampoo or henna products as may also react. I suggest deep conditioning and regular cutting to remove the damaged hair.







Julie asks:
Hi,

I have waist-long naturally super-fine dark brown hair. Itís naturally straight, but my scalp gets greasy fast and the further I go towards the ends, the frizzier it gets as the day goes on. Although my scalp and the hair around that area gets greasy so quickly--- only about 5-6 hours, faster if I run my hands through my hair, itís so prone to frizz that if I run my fingers through, then I get this instant static that plasters it to the side of my face where I have side bangs and makes it lift everywhere else.

When I was younger, my hair was straight, black, and glossy, and still fine, and Iím not sure why it suddenly deteriorated. Iíve been using drug-store brands such as Pantene and Dove, and I want to switch to something salon-grade that will fix my problem. Should I adjust the number of times I wash my hair? After skipping a single shower, the fineness of my hair shows the grease so obviously that at the top of my head they separate into streaks instead of falling individually. It tangles so easily that it takes a solid twenty minutes just to get it straight after a short run.

As of now, my hair is dull and flat, and constantly riddled with a horde of split ends. What should I do to fix this?

Along with fixing this problem, Iíve always wanted white, silver, platinum, etc. hair. I know that bleaching makes hair frizzy and brittle, especially with dark (and fine?) hair, but Iím absolutely in love with the idea of having a split ends, but I want it to stay long. Is bleaching a good idea, with my hair?
Thanks for reading this monstrosity, and please get back soon.

Wow okay lets start at the beginning, Diet really does help the condition of the hair and scalp so firstly take a good look at your diet and make sure your having a good healthy and varied diet. I am a strong believer in taking supplements especially for improving hair and nails there are very many good ones on the market. Try shampooing your hair every other day and make sure you use a shampoo that is clear when it comes out of the bottle not opaque as generally the opaque, pearlescent, creamy shampoos have moisturizing ingredients and will makes the hair to soft and over condition at the root area. Rinse your hair really well after shampooing. Then apply a conditioner for fine hair only to the ends of your hair and gently comb it through to ear level, donít massage it in to your scalp at all. Leave for 1 min before rinsing. I would then use a spray leave in conditioner as well before leaving to dry naturally or blow drying. ...More >

Itís also important not to keep touching your hair as that really does encourage the oil production. Dry shampoo now available in colour formulas is also a saving grace for when your out and about or feel that your hair is starting to look greasy, so try one of those.

Have a good trim and whilst your at the salon you can ask about the colour, there are some amazing new Phlex systems that allow multiple levels of lift which is what would be required on your dark hair to get it blonde and they restructure the hair whilst lifting it.

Really good luck and Iím sure this will make a difference.
