Default Now I am going "curly" I hate my hair colour.

Since going CG I hate my hair colour. I have a med ash colour that is highlighed. My hairdresser and myself have got carried away and taken the highlights too light the last few times. When I straighten it it looks great, I love it. But when it is wavy and clumped it looks rank. It looks dirty and boganish. I have taken photos so I can show you what I mean but they are still on my camera.

So.....I am going to book in soon to get it fixed. My natural colour is very dull so I am thinking of taking it back to my natural colour with maybe some golden highlights, the same shade as my natural colour but warmer. This is huge for me cos I really like the ash tones, my husband is not a fan of red. But I really want something that will shine and compliment my waves.

Now.....my hairdresser is awesome and I am sure she will help me sort the colour out. I plan on taking my own Silicone free poo and condish in......BUT my question is, so hair colours have silicones in them. Will I have to clarify at some stage after the colour?

I personally don't know I've given up colouring. Perhaps cross post in the hair colouring forum?

just make sure you let it sit for a few days as you don't want to clarify and remove too much dye in the first few days. It'll make your hair fade too fast. If that's your hair in the pic - i really like the colour

Yeah I would wait at least a week.

Ta, you know I am not hating it so much now myself. I was having a bad day I think. Still the blonde is too blonde, or should I say my natural colour is too dark and it's looking too streaked at the back and the difference in colours just looks tacky. I need to tone down the blonde next time I get it coloured. I love the blonde but the roots and uncoloured hair are just too dark in comparasen. looks great when straightened but the waves just exagerate the streaks, and not in a good way.

if you go for more low lights perhaps, they are better for your hair may help to break it up a little and blend in with your natural colour better. Or you could look into balange (not sure how it's spelt) but they hand paint the colour onto your hair to make it look more natural. Just an idea

Yeah I think I will just get some low lights. I have been getting both lowlights and highlights lately but I need a good dose of just low lights. I think that will do the trick, as long as she does fine ones that will break up the blonde chunks.......thanks CWG, it's been good thinking out loud. I'll book in once my son is desperate for a haircut and kill two birds with one stone.

I know when I use to colour my hair, I'd get 'tips' instead of foils. You know they put a cap on your head and pull bits through to colour. It would last longer in my hair. The colour is put on finer sections of hair and closer to the scalp. So I would colour less often. I always hated the already looks a bit grown out look of foils. I'm not sure all hairdressers do this though.

Funny you should mention that, cos I kind of knew that I would get a better result at breaking the colours up with the cap....but I HATE the cap. Oh how I hate it LOL. I will see what she says when I book in. I am trying to stretch it out cos I have a wedding at the beginning of October but my hairdresser is going overseas for the whole month of September so I have to book in at the end of August.....Oh goodness, I don't think I can last that long LOL.

I actually kind of enjoy the cap. Sometime part of my scalp were tender and it would be uncomfortable. however back when i coloured like this i was experiencing major build up, especially on scalp (was non cg then!) and found it therapeutic, haha! good luck with ur mission :P

Hiya Aussie curly girls,

About six years ago I experienced a serious psoriasis breakout after getting a semi-permanent colour done at a hairdresser. It wasn't even a permanent colour, so you would think that it would be more gentle on the scalp. But alas it took a few months to remove the scaling from my scalp - I absolutely hated it at the time.

A couple of years ago I had a colour patch test done to see what would happen, and had a mild adverse reaction. Obviously my body's way of telling me to back off. I never did find out which chemical caused the irritation. Anyway, no more hair colouring for me!

Bye for now.
