Cross Post- Colored Hair Help (Rymorg?!)

Posted this in the general section but thought I may get quicker feedback from you fellow wavies...Please help my hair get out of the funk!

___________________________________________

Hello,

Hoping you can all help out, and hopefully Rymorg reads this!

I color my hair every 4ish months and never seem to have a problem. I *think* my hairdresser used to use a "gloss" when coloring but I could be wrong.

Out of convenience I had someone else color my hair the other day and now I regret it. First, I could smell the ammonia (if not ammonia, strong chemical smell) when she put it on my hair, and I never have smelled that before. The mixture itched and tingled my scalp but I would not say it burned. Once rinsed off, my scalp was fine and not irritated. First, the color is not what I wanted (very dark, which is good, but I wanted some red in there)...

But more importantly, my curls have been way off since coloring. They seem to be slowly coming back but are much looser in general, and not nearly as tight. Should I do a PT and/or DT? I am waiting for some CJ stuff in the mail, including Repair Me! to try.

Just needing some advice on how to get my curls back to normal...Hopefully I didn't do any permanent damage. Please let me know your feedback and/or tips!

I didn't read Rymorg's post on the other thread yet. I just want to let you know that when I accidently dye my porous hair too dark, my porous hair "self corrects". Too dark dye will just fall out of my hair by itself. So, if you can stand it, I'd wait to do color correction. The color may fix itself.

Rymorg-The pic you had in your siggi inspired me to get off my duff and buy a flower clip for my hair. I happen to be wearing it now and love it.
I did impulse buy the bright pink lipstick. The color I got was way too shear. But I realized I don't need to try again, because hot barbie pink is way too cool for my skin tone. Oh well. Still love it on you though.
