Hi, I had my hair died! Iím dark brunette by the way. I wanted an ombrť effect to sandy blonde/brown however itís gone way too blonde. Whatís your best advice? Can I dye it with a home kit? I canít afford to go back to the hairdressers and I really donít like it

The best way to go about this to give your hair a more natural look is to tone it down with semi-permanent colour. Without looking at your hair it may be that your hair has gone a little yellow which is why itís not working for you! Maybe opt for a caramel shade as this is a happy medium shade until you can afford to go back to your colourist. However as youíre not happy with what your colourist has done I would suggest going to back to the salon to ask for help Ė Iím sure your colourist would prefer that you were happy and would return! Most salons will also offer this as complimentary as you are unhappy with the service provided originally!

I have a client who is a natural red head, she dyed her hair red and its now wishy washy red/pink all over apart from 4 inches from her scalp which is still a deep red. She wants to go back to being an obvious bright ginger as she called it. Her hair is extremely over processed so I said she would have to lose a good 5 inches off the ends. After taking some test cuttings, I tried one with a mild cleansing bath which snapped after 5 mins the other I used colour touch 7/43 mixed with 0/34, this produced a deeper ginger colour, she wants it lighter and more vibrant though so I was thinking to maybe use the copier majicontrast to lift it using 6% on mid lengths and ends and a 9% on the redder root area? Followed by a deep condition. I just wondered what your thoughts are.iv only really been trained with wella products so would like some advice please.any help would be great.thankyou x

It sounds as though your client is really over-processing her hair which may be why your not getting the colour she wants. I would personally work on the condition of the hair rather than the colour for now. Majicontrast will give a more metallic colour to the hair as opposed to something that looks natural so until the condition of your clientís hair improves I would steer clear of any more colouring.

Hey I need help my hair was red .. Like a couple months ago I didnít want it anymore so I put black over it but now that I have a relaxer it turned green what do I do? Because after I take these braids out I want around my head black and the top part this pink color I use to have btw I have a short cut ..
|Answered By: |
Hi Nicole, firstly I would suggest that you need to avoid too many chemical treatments on your hair at present as it sounds as though your hair is struggling to cope with colour after relaxer after colour. Usually when you put black on top of red it should go black quite quickly but as youíve had a relaxer as well the colour has turned green which is an indication of damage. I really would visit a specialist who will be able to start your colour-correcting journey but Iím afraid the pink may take a long time to achieve Ė I would perhaps suggest starting by taking the hair back to red which will counteract the green and bring your hair to a slightly browner colour and then wait until your hair is back in optimum condition before embarking on a brighter colour.
