My hair appears to have grown from a very short blonde crop at the beginning of September into a short layered bob. My roots are starting to look really crap though and I'm way too skint to visit the hairdressers. I want to sort it out because I might be getting some job interviews soon. I read that dying blonde hair red, then dark brown will get it back to nearly my natural colour. Anyone know anything about this? I don't want any red tints to my hair, so I'm a little apprehensive.
Just be nice to me.

This is the best picture of my hair ever:

If only my hair always looked like that.

heee...i'm sure your hair loves that picture too, anders.

i was looking online for coats and saw a photo of a girl and her hair was exactly like mine would be if i didn't straighten it. somehow she managed to pull it off and it actually looked really good! how do people do this? i really want to know what the secret is.

anyway, i accidentally cut off a big chunk of my hair whilst attempting to snip the grey hairs out. those little buggers are so hard to catch!

I just bought some Redken shampoo and conditioner (from the All Soft range) from lookfantastic.com, and I got it delivered today (just two days later! So quick!) and I've used it today for the first time. My hair is incredibly soft, as if I've used a deep treatment.

yeah, it's nice too in that it has a good scent but it's not overwhelming. i've never really used posh shampoos and conditioners before, but so far i'm liking it! i don't really use styling products in my hair (well, heat protection spray for blow-drying, but i tend just to let it air-dry, and maybe some serum to reduce a bit of frizz) and i never really splurge on anything that has to do with my hair apart from the occasional cut.

have you tried their other ranges?

Yesterday I dyed my hair for the first time ever. I've been getting grey hairs ever since I was 17, but on friday..for the first time ever..the hairdresser carefully asked me: " Hmm..have you ever considered colouring your hair..there are..quite some grey hairs here." That was my cue. I feel bloody old. But I also have my old hair colour back now (dark brown with slightly reddish glow) and it's much nicer than it's been for the last few years..but still, the idea of having to dye my hair until I have reached a more mature age to go grey is kind of unsettling.

I got some Miki from Lush Red streaks in my hair today. Just because. It's a very bright red but only shows up a little in this photo.

that looks really great rachel!

i cut my hair today, and my hairdresser was awesome because she totally worked with my natural wave and kinda-curl in my hair, and made me feel all farrah but in a good modern way. here is a pic!

rachel, that colour looks so good! and astrid, i WISH my wavy hair could look that good. i'd totally grow it and stop straightening it if i could pull that off.

OOOoooooohh a thread all about hair - ive only just discovered this! - Im obsessed with dying my hair - have had many disasters and am famous for having a different colour every week! - currently very short and copper - but am thinking its about time for a change its been at least ............3 weeks since I dyed it - not sure what colour to go for next, have been purple and brown so far this year - fancy a nice bleached white colour but unfortunately if I want to do that got to wait until current colour grows out - already tried to strip it and couldn't get it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that looked good I can tell you - sort of red type ends and white roots! - hence its been covered up with copper!

I'm thinking of going for bangs (super short ones). Anyone want to talk me off the ledge?

i've noticed in the last couple of weeks that the grey/white hairs are creeping their way into the top visible part of my hair. GAH! i mean, there were a couple showing before which i didn't really mind too much about but now there are like, TONS. wtf? i guess i'm gonna have to suck it up and start dyeing soon. the thing is, i really like my natural hair colour. is there some kinda dye that'll just dye the greys and leave the rest of my hair alone?

no, but shoe polish would probably give a nicer, more natural sheen.

You should talk to Lisa about this. She's having the same problem.

I probably shouldn't have mentioned that.

Argh, I'm getting my hair cut on Thursday and I'm kinda nervous. I only decided on it properly today, but I've been toying with this idea during spring...

Basically, I'm getting collarbone-length hair. Yup. Which is cutting off about 10 cm/4 inches. Which is an awful lot of hair to me. Especially with the wedding three weeks away.

I just really really like that length. I've had it before at 17, and it was cute then without ANY styling products, so I imagine it can look quite fabulous straightened OR curled.

New wedding hair inspiration Anne Hathaway:

This is what it kinda looks like when I just clip it up now, in the desired length.

I am going to tell them, in a much more polite and trusting way "I will honestly come back here and strangle you with my bare hands if this looks bad" and bring 500 000 pictures so it can't go wrong. Argh I am still so nervous, but the htought of all my thick, wavy hair just HANGING there makes me tired. It's so amazing what a cut can do to freshen up a look, and I am very much hoping now that I am much better at styling my hair, this can be that awesome change.

SO NERVOUS THOUGH. WHAT IF IT IS FUG? I WILL CRY!

Impossible. It will not be fug! You've got such great texture and body to your hair. It will still be long enough to hang like you want and style like Anne's in that picture. Fear not!

Thank you! It's always a bit nerve-wrecking. My sisters laugh at me because I won't go to the hairdressers without multiple hair styling things (clips etc) knitted hat or scarf depending on season, plus a hairbrush in case they put a lot of crap in there. I'm always so nervous about making them sad that I just go "UH-HUH I LOVE IT!" and don't let myself stare at it the way I want.
