Daisy asks:
I have waist length, naturally dark brown hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted the Balayage style with a slightly lighter brown. After the treatment, I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís blotchy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry. I had no split ends before this but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because itís often damaging and I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour).

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.





Julie asks:
I have recently moved to an area where the house has a water softener. My hair has gone dull, lifeless, dry, lacking shine and I never feel like I have rinsed it enough times so am probably damaging the hair shaft even more. Please can you tell me what I can do to combat this? Does soft water ruin hair? Any suggestions would be really helpful.

I would recommend you invest in a moisturising shampoo and conditioner. The Kťrastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1 Shampoo and Lait Vital Conditioner will add back some of the moisture your water softener has washed out. Soft water doesnít necessarily damage your hair, but you may notice it can still feel a bit greasy on fine hair. I would also recommend rinsing your hair in cool water to close the hair shaft.







Paula asks:
Can highlights disguise grey roots? Which product would you recommend that I use? My hairdresser used LíOreal Majimeche with excellent results the first time, but the next appointment that I booked for a refresh seemed to have no impact at all on the grey growth. Please can you help?

Hayley Gibson-ForbesAnswered By:

Highlights can disguise grey roots, but will not cover them 100%. I would recommend using a pre-lightener and a natural lowlight to blend in the colour with your hair on the ends. To answer your question about your second visit, you may not have seen such a big impact if your regrowth wasnít as obvious as it was on your first visit.
