Curlytwirly, I can relate to how you feel. I have had stylists say things like "don't you trust me" and "don't you want my creative input"? I hate that I am manipulated into saying yes, when I don't trust the stylist and know what I want and don't want them to do something I know won't work for me, but I find it very hard to be assertive in those situations!
I am very assertive (in a good way) with cosmeticians and clothes or jewelry salespeople - why can't I translate that to the salon? Anyway, Chloe is correct. Wait at least 48 hrs. before washing to let the color take as well as it can.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker

Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
