hair problems Lock Rss

Hi, I have always used a DIY blonding kit and after that failed last time I went to the hairdressers....I tried to go back to my natural colour but the lady after trying it said the colour wouldn't "hold" in my hair and she just used foils to cover my old re-growth....its back to getting my hair redone...regrowth is back...does anyone know what I can do with my blonde frizzy mop of hair...its terrible. I hate being a blonde cause its TOO blonde for my liking now..
Any suggestions would be good...besides shaving it off or cutting it really short..its way too thick for that.
Cheers Em

Hi Em,

I know hormones play a big part in what a hair colour will and won't do. Are your pregnant or recently had a baby?

Hi jz,
I'm so sorry I haven't replied earlier been busy. Well to answer your question I need to ask you something 1st. You say that your hair is almost Black, is that coloured or is that your natural colour?? It makes a big difference when you're aiming to go lighter. It's not impossible for you to go lighter but it definately would involve full head bleaching (maybe twice) then a toner to achieve the desired result. You certainly would want to invest in some professional sh/cond & a good treatment to maintain the condition of your hair after a big colour change like that. What is the condition of your hair like now?

Dear Em, I glad your seeking other hairdressers, it's really hard to find a great one & one who has experience & knowledge for ALL sorts of hair.
The chestnut sounds like the best thing to do but still may need a second colour over the top straight away to "pack it in" so it lasts. Once you've had it done a few times you'll find it'll start to last quite a while smile
Keep me updated, I'd love to hear how you go

Spot on Sal,
Definately the best idea to see a colour specialist. In some salons the hairdresser does everything & yet in some others you'll find they only specialise in one or two things only (like cutting/styling or colour). You guys all have a right to ask & be informed of the qualifications , specialties & experience of the person who will be doing your hair & DON'T be afraid to ask for someone else if you don't feel comfortable about it. It's YOUR hair & YOUR money & if it doesn't turn out how you want it to then you're the one that has to wear it for the next how ever long it takes to grow out or what ever!!
Ask around your friends,neighbours, school mums who's hair you think looks great & get recommendations.
GOOD LUCK girls, I'd love to hear about some happy clients

Hi there,

My hairdresser told me that hair changes its structure every 7 years or so. A similar thing has happend to me. Perhaps they are changing the stuff in the d.i.y hair kits and it does not suit our hair.
I know how frustrating this is because with the expense of our beautiful children we sometime have to give up the little things that make US feel like beautiful women!!!

ooooh and the reason i opted to shave it, as it was way to expensive to get fixed, this was the best solution, cheaper, and natrual way.

i cant believe you shaved your head - your game. lol. my hair is naturally curly and i have found that since having my sons it has gone absolutely feral. when i was breast feeding it wasn't too bad but once i stopped it started to thin and now all the hair that is growing back is growing in the wrong direction. i have never hated my hair so much.
