How can i remove red from my hair?

Question

I am trying to get my hair a sort of light brownish colour, right now my hair is a reddish colour, what is the best to change my colour?

Answer

Red is a complicated colour to remove from hair and depending on the level of red will depend on the time it takes…I would really suggest that you do this kind of change with a hairdresser. Option one is that we would use a green based tint which cools down the colour thereby making it browner.  Option 2 is to do multi colored highlights…some blonde some ash some chocolate. This is a great way to do a change.

Question

Hi there
I have a problem – this might sound silly but I am actually quite stressed about it. I have very long hair, I have had long hair all my life but now recently my fiancé keeps on saying that I should cut my hair – I told him I would be “traumatized” if I did. He says it would look “classy” I love my long hair so much. The thought of even taking a few centimetres off makes me sick. What can I do to – I do not want to cut my hair.

Am I allergic to hair dye?

Question

I dyed my hair recently and had a really bad reaction where I had broken skin on my scalp and my face started to become swollen. I contacted my doctor before it got worse and had to be put on antibiotic. I take it that I react badly to PPD and TDS. Please can you recommend product that I could use that will not cause the adverse reaction.

P.S. The last product I used was ammonia-free but it didn’t help.
