Thanks Ringlets...I appreciate it. I am not thrilled with the highlights...some are too chunky for me, but at least they aren't drastic. I can live with it until my hair recovers and I'll do it again.

Thanks also for the help on the numbering system. Do you have insight on the numbering system for the stuff you mix the color with? At Sally's you can buy 10, 20, 30 etc. They tell me it gives more "lift" the higher the number. What does that mean? I am taking it that since I have done a permanent color than even if I do a removal kit (like the one from RC), that my natural color is gone or messed up? Is that correct? If so, I guess I have stuck for the next 10 years or so, because my hair grows so slow. SIGH...I always leap before I look. Years ago I did the "sun in" fiasco and ended up with orange hair. Will I never learn? I doubt it.
