...and I'm coming here for help!
I don't really post here, but have perusing the board lately, as I'm highlighting my hair this Saturday (going with red-violet), and I'm looking for aftercare tips.
I'd be lying if I said that reading posts in this section hasn't somewhat frightened me about dyeing my hair. The last time I dyed it was about 10 years ago, and I'm just ready for a change. I'm bored, and I don't wear it down ALL the time, but I think with highlights, I'd be more likely to do so. I used to dye it pinks and blues and everything as a teen, until my stylist told me basically it was time to be an adult (at 18 and about to start college) and to put those colors aside.
Part of me feels like I'm rebelling against her lol, but I kind of want to just highlight once, now that I have a better relationship with my hair. I'm not looking to make this an all the time thing.
Now that I'm done spewing out that backstory, I have a couple of questions, if anyone wouldn't mind answering.
*Is there a special technique that my stylist should be using on my curly hair? I never had foils done--it was always pulling my tangled, dry curls through the highlighting cap (oh, the pain!!!!! I'm surprised I even had hair left to dye after that.).
*Is there a different CG friendly dye that she should use, or will my 2 and a half years of CG go down the tubes?
*What CG friendly products do you recommend for post dyeing care?
I thank you all in advance, and apologize if this has been posted a million times before.
