I have been having blonde highlights over my naturally mousey brown hair for 4-5 years and was really blonde. I decided to go brown and wanted a light warm brown but the hairdresser told me to get the coverage over all the bleach I have had on I would need to go darker. Now I have dull dark brown hair which I hate. This salon is the best in my area. I had it done yesterday and have phoned back today, she said the only option is to have highlights put through but I hate having different colours in my hair. I just want to be all 1 colour, a light brown. What can I do without stripping it? My hair is in okay condition, despite the 4 years of bleach.

Unfortunately you were totally misinformed by your salon - it may be the best but has no idea of colour. When you have bleached lights and wish to go to a warm light brown, all that is necessary is to have a Red colour wash through the hair before the brunette is applied – this ensures that the colour is even and warm and prevents the hair from looking almost green in colour. It is a simple and easy colour service. The only thing you can do to rectify it is to have the colour removed - which sounds drastic but it is very simple if the colourist knows what they are doing - there is a product out there called Eraser by Affinage - this removes artificial colour without any bleaching process - it takes 15 mins and leaves your hair feeling amazing. You need to lift the colour out until the dark brown is lighter then have your light warm brunette put through. Find someone who knows what they are doing.

Can hair dying during pregnancy harm the baby?

Is it true some hair products have carcinogenic or cancer causing substances in them?
It is not proven that colouring hair causes harm to any unborn child. Some people prefer not to do on the scalp colour when pregnant and opt for foil colouring instead. I am certainly not aware of any carcinogenic substances in hair products. I hope that helps you.

I have really thick hair but few months ago I got a Chinese hair cut, they tend to use sharp blades to add texture to the hair. However this looked really good to start with but now that it has grown out it has become really thin at the bottom. Now my hair is not thick anymore and I miss it, I do not no what to do should I cut it completely short to the thick layers or should I wait for it to grow back.

Basically they seemed to have used thinning scissors on you hair to reduce volume and thickness. Do not worry, its not necessary to cut it off and start again. What you need to do is to have at least 2 inches cut off the length and layers, with normal scissors not thinning scissors or a razor, to begin thickening the hair back to its former glory. You will feel better instantly, then leave it another 6 weeks and trim regularly. Your hair will look and feel thin and almost torn by having this type of cut, but take my advice and get yourself booked in next week.
