Sandra asks:
I am 43 and have really gray hair. I have had it coloured by a hairdresser for the last six years back to my natural dark brown colour. My hairdresser uses Redken hair products. Six weeks ago, about 6 hours after the colour my head was burning, this resulted in some hair loss and a rash covering my whole body. This has cleared up but after several skin tests I react. I am now going really grey! Please help?

Sorry to hear of your problem. This is a tricky one, you are obviously allergic to one of the main ingredients in a full colour. This can be quite dangerous if your allergy is extreme. First of all - Do not attempt to use any colouring product yourself from the major chemist chains or shops - most of them will contain the ingredient you are allergic to. I suggest you have many skin tests with other manufacturer’s colours such as Goldwell Top Chic and Colourance - Wella Koleston or Colour Touch or Schwarzkopf or Aveda colour. ...More >

Redken is an American product and are usually very strong in chemicals. The ones I have suggested are European and far more gentle on the hair and scalp. If this fails - you only have one other choice - Vegetable Colours such as Henna. Henna does come in several shades and works well on most grey hair.

On another note your allergy may well disappear in the same way it suddenly started.





Claire asks:
I am 40 years old and at a loss as to what to do with my hair. For a while now I have been growing it so the back reaches the centre of my back but it always looks so lifeless and shapeless. I have layers through the top section and I have been colouring it myself with the L'Oreal Excellence brown mahogany shade. Pleas don't tell me to visit my salon colourist because I simply do not have the time or money for the upkeep of salon colouring! I have been toying with the idea of having 2-21/2 inches lopped off the back so that I may be able to go for a more bobbed effect but it has taken me so long to get it to this length that I am really reluctant to go for it even though I go for regular "just the ends off please" trims. I just don't know what to do to recapture its shine and style that I would have thought nothing of changing perhaps 15-20 years ago. Any ideas?

You are in the best years of your life but all of us in our 40's want to look younger- and so we should. You are obviously not happy with you hair cut so it’s important to search high and low for a style you really dream of. When you find that look then go for it without hesitation. You hair seems to be over layered and limp at the ends, so I definitely think you need to lose some length. Go for a sophisticated sexy cut and then continue colouring yourself.







Samantha asks:
I have a new client that has requested I use Majimeche. I have never used it before so I am just wondering how do you use it and how do you mix it!

Beverly CAnswered By:

Majimeche is a product by L Oreal thats for highlight effects. It can lift up to 5 shades and there are many different shades to choose from. They are normally mixed with 1 part colour to 2 parts developer. My advice to you is to get some advice from your local distributor - Sallys - and they will help you. However, all the major manufacturers have high lift colours that work just as well if not better - Try the beautiful blonde collection from TOP CHIC - Goldwell - they are amazing.
