Kay asks:
I have had blonde highlights for years. I am 55 and now have a lot of grey. This time I decided to have honey and caramel highlights and my hairdresser suggested having the roots tinted. The tint turned my roots ginger and as I wash it it's getting lighter. Also she has cut chunks out of one side of my hair, (which is quite long). Apart from changing my hairdresser, can you suggest anything please?

It sounds quite bad. Your hairdresser is obviously not highly trained in colour. Her suggestion to tint the roots and add highlights was a good idea, but her colour choice was incorrect. You need to have less warmth in the tinted colour and this can be corrected easily by an experience colourist. Make an appointment for a consultation with a few recommended colourists and then go with the one you feel most comfortable with. Itís not a disaster; it can be fixed easily and quickly.

Lauren asks:
My hair is a plain mousey brown and I want to lighten it, I have had highlights before but they don't make my hair especially light, I have seen pictures of hair colours I would like and it looks as if they have an all over colour and then highlights on top. I had a bad experience a few years ago where a hairdresser used bleach all over and put heat on it, which resulted in half my hair falling out and splitting off. I have just got it back to a good thickness and length and donít want to do anything to ruin this but I have seen many people with long blonde thick hair and wondered how they keep it? What would you recommend?

Without seeing your hair I would have thought that you could lift your natural colour to the blonde you desire without using a bleach, which can be very damaging to the hair.

I would suggest having highlights and not an all over colour as again this can be very drying on your hair. What I would strongly recommend is a free consultation with a reputable hairdresser before doing anything else. They might do a strand test first to make sure your hair is strong enough and to see how light your hair will lift to.

Frances asks:
I am 48 years old and in my youth had very thick, coarse red hair. This is now nearly grey and has become more frizzy lately. I think the frizzy ness is related to not being able to use the hair products that have worked well for a few years (Aveda), because of a sore and sensitive scalp. I have my hair cut regularly and I have just started using my son's hair straighteners (which I haven't used since I was 18)! But I'm aware that this route might not be the best. Any ideas?

You are right when you say that using hair straighteners everyday is not ideal because of drying the hair out.

There are other products to use on your hair such as Sebastian Potion 9, which is a leave in conditioner. This will help reduce the frizziness and enable you to wear your hair curly on certain days, leaving you the option to straighten your hair on others. ...More >

Also consider using Wella System Professional products for your sore and sensitive scalp to see if this helps.
