Thanks Misfitscurls

But, I go to colorist after work. I wear hair either down or pulled up. I likely would not wear pigtails during the day at work. Is there another way to avoid combing hair dry?

Do not Tip! And, how is the softener?

You tipped already so do not tip again. I had color done, and it was way too dark. Went back a week later for them to fix it -- no way was I tipping when I'm a customer for 10 years.

Do you know what WHITE DOT BREAKAGE is?

I was reading CurlyNikki's blog and she stated she had "white dot" breakage.

Is this is damaged hair when you see a light color about an inch or two before the strand ends? What causes this?
