I like dark hair so I wouldn't get any - your hair looks so healthy and shiny and the highlights could wreck that. If you want a change, try a reddish semi-permanent colour, or a chocolate brown (which is what I have right now and I love it).

Your hair is very cute and looks like Subbrock's hair now that it's grown out some.. I agree with Amneris. Highlights are going to fry your hair and what a shame that would be I also agree with Amneris on the color suggestions. Blonde wouldn't work with your skin tone and probably would wash you out; stick with reds and browns.

I say no to highlights as well, they will wreck your hair and with the length it's at now, it could end up looking like spots.

Is there a way to get highlights that won't wreck your hair?

I was thinking about getting some highlights before the fall wedding of a friend, but my concern is that since I don' t have enough length to spare any to needless trimming, maybe I shouldn't put any hair at risk. I've had them twice: once reddish, and once blond. The blond ones definitely felt like straw after a month or so, but then again, I was using shampoo and whatnot then. The red ones grew out fine; I was using shampoo then as well.
your hair looks so great cookie! i love your curly puff! curltopia is right, it kinda does look like mine

every summer i lighten my hair, and this time, like every time, i do an all over lightening color and then have highlights put in as well. that way it doesnt look like crazy streaks through such dark hair. i love the color, but it did dry out my hair at first. but i keep my hair healthy, so i didnt have any breakage or anything, just drier hair.

i say if you want to, and your hair is healthy, go for it. just keep it well conditioned and hydrated. AND DONT USE AN AT HOME KIT! go to a professional!!!
Looks like I'm coming in a little late on this thread. You can check out my pics of highlights. I got them last year and I can't wait until they grow out. I miss my dark hair. It took a couple of months for my hair to get used the color. It was very dry and I had to deep condition every week. The highlights were pretty, but very hard on my hair. Not necessarily damaging, but definitely drying. Good luck w/ your decision.
Tight curls...well maybe not so much anymore.

I don't know if you're still considering this, but, I had strawberry blonde highlights done at a salon years ago and my hair felt the same afterwards. I loved them! Maybe you could research a little more and I would also recommend going to a salon/stylist that you trust. There is also a thread somewhere about henna.

In that album, is that your natural hair color? also when you used the stawberry blonde highlights was permanent, semi-p., or henna?

Thanks for sharing!

I streaked a few small sections of my hair with Sun-In (peroxide) last summer to get coppery highlights like I had naturally when I was little. Peroxide is known to be drying, but I kept my hair really conditioned when I did it and I didn't put it on all of my hair. I love the slightly brighter color it gave me. I am hoping when I go to Devachan for the hair model thing that they can lighten my hair slightly. When I had the professional highlights, it was permanent color. It lasted until my hair grew out. I have never tried henna except for a henna shampoo once. It made my hair darker! So you are thinking of getting highlights?

UrbanCurls,

Thanks for responding! You are going to be a hair model on Aug. 1st? I am! That's cool! Wow, I already know a few curlies who are going.
I wasn't planning on getting highlight, but probably will since I volunteered to be a model. I wonder if the chemicals that they use
at Devachan for the highlights are permanent or semi p. ? Anyone?

Maya, I couldn't find any info on the Devachan website about what kind of color they use.

As far as color goes, it's the Pintura Method and it permanent. She told me that they don't use foil. HTH
