I was coloring every 2 months or so as well. Right around the time my hair would seem to be more manageable, I'd color again. It took me awhile to figure out that the color was damaging my hair. I mean, I knew coloring did SOME damage; I just never imagined it was doing as much as it was. I thought my hair was just ridiculously temperamental. Now, 7 months post-chem coloring, my hair looks and feels healthier than it ever has before, and what's even more interesting is that now I can use products that I thought my hair hated
. I'm glad I never cleaned out my product stash because now I'm using almost all of my products without issue.
