Can't I Just Dye Over The Problem Colour?

We get asked this with almost every hair colour disaster and the answer is "no!". Applying a new shade over the problem hair colour won’t necessarily fix your hair colour disaster and could actually make it worse

If your hair has a build up of previous hair colour, if it has been over-processed or has been damaged by the sun, this will affect different sections of the hair. The best thing to do is let a McGills expert colourist analyse the condition of your hair, we can then decide on a mixture of tones and shades which would best restore your desired hair colour.

My Hair Has Been Over-Processed and is Breaking - Will I Need To Cut It Off?

Over-bleaching hair can cause it to become dry and brittle, which will lead to it breaking and splitting. We would never recommend to bleach your hair at home. The good news is that we can repair your hair without resorting to cutting the damaged hair out. 

We use only the very best Davines hair colour products and are the experts and knowing which products will remove unwanted colour and restore you hair colour. We can also recommend a range of hair repair treatments which will repair the bonds in your hair to restore your hair to a healthy condition.
