I would like to have a professional advice as to the best colour length, etc. for my hair. I have gone to many stylist praying one will have the skill needed but to date have had no luck. I am 62 years of age and by day a juvenile probation officer and by the end of the week worn and tattered. Just looking for a lift to keep me on this mission smiling.
Thank you and look forward to hearing from you

I suggest having a consultation in as many salons as necessary until you find the hairdresser who understands your needs and suggests a look that excites you. Although long hair that can be tied up can be convenient with your job, it will take more work and if your time is short and energy low at the end of the week, then something a bit shorter, above shoulders, maybe just the tonic. A quick, easy to manage hairstyle can do wonders to make us fill refreshed and ready to face the world.

I have been going to the hairdressers for a few years, to get blonde balayage on the ends of my hair which is what I had until recently. But a few days ago I decided to go darker and bought a Loreal at home dye that washes out after 8 weeks, however, it turned out way too dark and being impatient, I bought ColourB4 hair colour remover and applied this the next day. Now my hair has reverted to almost my natural brown but with a very strong reddish tint :( how can I get my balayage back? How soon is too soon to go to a hairdresser and ask them to fix it using permanent dye? I have heard if you use permanent dye too soon after ColourB4 this can revert your hair to very dark, however I donít know if this applies to me since I only used a temporary at home dye. Please help!

Thereís a general rule which is tint will not lift tint, so to get back to your lightened balyage you will need to have your hair bleached. Often the wash-out colours still contain a second ingredient that has to be mixed in, this is an activator that means this is still a chemical colour. Previously this may have been an issue with so many chemical processes on your hair in a short period of time, but with the technology in salons these days such as products like INNNOluxe, which rebuilds the hair during the colouring process, hairdressers can achieve more than ever. What is possible in one visit will always depend on the condition of your hair and your hairdresser should advise you exactly what they do for you during the consultation.

Recently I used Splat midnight hair dye at home without bleaching my naturally medium brown hair and I liked the result, but was immediately told by someone after that Splat is super hard to get out. Donít know if that is something Iíll want to do in the future, but is it true? Is there a way to go about removing the dye easily?

Iím not an expert on that brand, but as itís just one colour (not a 2 part colour that has to be mixed together) and itís been applied to medium brown hair, then it is likely to fade from your hair completely.
The length of time it will last will depend on your condition, the healthier your hair is the longer it is likely to last, but that will also depend on how often you shampoo and the shampoo you use. I would always advise colour saver shampoos bought from a salon, they may cost a bit more, but the investment is worth it both in terms of colour longevity and health of hair. The advice you had may be more relevant with pre-lightened hair where the larger blue pigment can be difficult to remove due to the porosity of the hair, even though it can lose its intensity quite quickly.
