|Sarah asks: |
I have naturally dark blonde/ mousy but looks darker lately hair and have had several blending tones of blonde in it for years now. It regularly trimmed and in good condition, however I feel washed out lately and have always wanted a more dramatic look and fancy having my hair dyed a warm/ chocolate brown. I have fair pinky cheeks skin, and hazel brown eyes. Can you advise me if dying my hair brown would suit me, and what shade would be best. I am finding it really hard to get good advice on this matter. I am mid thirties but look young, and have long hair. I want to look my best. Please help.

I would really recommend advice from a professional colourist and a treatment at the salon as what you want is technically quite difficult and I would not advise you to try to do this at home. It is worth saving up for professional help that way you are assured your hair will look its best.

I have always had my hair cut by my sister, and then about 4 years ago had a perm, but then after a couple of years I got bored of it, and started to tie my hair back. Since my hair has become frizzy, dry, and my scalp very itchy. My hair now has no style in it, and is just truly awful. Recently, I have considered going to the hairdressers to have it styled, but do not know what style to get, and what products to use for my hair, as it is so frizzy and is very dry. Can you give me any advice on a style or products to use? My face shape is oval, and my hair is a bit longer than shoulder length, and I have a fringe.

First of all we have to concentrate on putting a suitable shape in your hair. In order to do this we have to consider what will suit your hair type and face shape. If your hair is quite frizzy and quite thick and you have an oval face shape it would be advisable not to keep your hair too long. A more flattering length would be shoulder length with long heavier layers to avoid a triangular shape (if your hair is big and frizzy). Adding longer layers and graduation would make the hair sit better around the face. A fringe is suitable if your face is oval, if you want it to open your face up then maybe the fringe could be connected to the length. This will create a layered look around the face making the haircut look more styled. At the same time this look will be easy to maintain as there will still be some weight in the hair. In order to improve the condition of the hair, it is extremely important to use products that add moisture and builds up the hairs texture. Start with a good shampoo as this has the most effect on the hair. A good moisturizing shampoo will tame the frizz. After this you will need a good treatment, this should be repeated once a week to give your hair a real booster for the dryness, use the Trevor Sorbie repair mask. Always use a good conditioner after shampooing as this closes the hair and helps to restore shine. Styling products are also very important as not only does it affect the look of the hair but also for protection from heat styling and environmental effects. Try to use products that protect your hair before using the hairdryer or irons, in the long term this will help to keep your hair in better condition and will make it easier for you to manage.

I have very thick light brown/dark blonde shoulder length hair
which is quite wavy, but does not look good naturally, so I either mousse
or straighten it. However, it always goes rather wavy towards the end of
the day. How can I keep the style through the day? I have had blonde
highlights, which I like, and now I would like to dye it a medium blonde
colour. Would this look ok? Is there anything else I could do to my hair?

It could be different causes why your hair its going green, generally blonde hair can show ''acid'' colours easier than darker colours, that is because hair its absorbent and absorbs minerals and salts from the water like it could be chlorine or copper oxide. To remove this, you need to get liquid 30 volumes peroxide and soak the hair with it and watch it till disappear, then apply it to the hair and finish it with a clarifying shampoo cover this one with a plastic cap and bake it under the dryer for about 15 minutes, condition and treat the hair.
