I actually use all of the ocnditioner that came with the bleach AND toner tuesday night when I did it. I just can't get over how dry my hair is. It is shiny looking form the toner and looks healthy, but it is soooooo dry. I have never had dry hair like this before! Any leave in recomendations?

My ends are really crispy ... and I'm going to get them chopped off soon, can anybody recommend a fantastic conditioner I can use so it doesn't happen again????

My hair was dark brown but then it faded in the sun, so I tried to put blodne colour on it but it didn't work and only ended up taking most of the brown out. Now my hair is ORANGE!!! I really want to be blonde with darker foils in between. There is a stunning L'Oreal Couleur Experte box colour I want but it makes my hair the wrong colour. What should I do????

Major hair colour mishap! I usually colour my hair at home so I didn't think I'd have any problems but -- oh my holy God did I ever! Please help me!

My hair is naturally light brown. I usually colour it dark brown or black, or i bleach it platinum. No problems whatsoever. This time I tried a deep auburn, a deep bronzed brown. I had let my hair grow into its natural light brown so I wasn't layering new colour over old or anything. Maybe my natural colour was just too light. Anyway, my hair is now ORANGE! And not in a good way at all! I've never had this problem before, not even when I went blonde! What the heck should I do? I'm quite tempted to just do it myself again, a dark dark dark brown or black. But I would like to know what caused this disaster in the first place. Was my natural colour just too light? Help and opinions, anyone?

Okay, I need to tell you all about my current hair emergency.

My hair was bleached to platinum. I LOVED it. BUT my roots were coming in so I decided "what the hell? I just dye it back to my old natural color (medium red)." God! HUGE mistake. Red dye+bleached hair=BRIGHT UGLY RED FAKE LOOKING HAIR. OMG, it was terrible! I had to fix it. I called everywhere and used what knowledge I have to fix it.

Step one: I stripped the dye (it was a permanent dye so washing it would strip it enough) with a color stripper. This got it up to a pumpkin orange color. It stunk so bad that my hair still smells like rotten eggs

Step two: I bleached it according to what they told me at clairol. 40 minutes TOPS. No more since my hair was already bleached to high heaven white.

Step three: toning. I used Loreal Natural Match in Extra light ash blond to cut down on the yellow. I left it on for only 5 minutes and I am glad I did. My hair is quite medium ash blond, no where near extra light. That was from how porous my hair became through this process.

The results: I have medium ash blond hair now. I made a mistake, I get it NEVER DYE A BRIGHT COLOR OVER BLEACHED HAIR! I want my white platinum hair back soooo bad but I am waiting till all the hair on my head is grown out and virgin hair before coloring again in any form. My hair is literally cooked to a crisp now.

^ You might need to cut it as short as possible. I'm not an expert, but I wouldn't cut it all at once. You may need room to keep cutting it over and over. Maybe that's just silly, but it's now I have done it. My hair has healed now from past dying experiences, but the frizz will always be there until I can cut it all off.

Speaking of frizz and splits, I reccomend...

L'oreal - Feria Professional. I use this on a regular basis. It's actually meant for color treated hair. My hair is super fabulous because of this. Get it at Sally's.
Redken - All Soft Heavy Cream. I haven't used this myself, but I've used their regular conditioners and this looks even more promising. 4.5 at MUA.com

Sleep in either or both of these for... well, the rest of your life.

I had a hair disaster yesterday.

I got that loreal color expert kit, one that wasn't far away from my normal color. I just wanted to brighten my mousy hair. Well, the first step color is really pretty but the highlights ended up not really taking to the strands i chose and now i have a brassy orange chunk at my bangs and temples.

Thank god I have an appointment wednesday. I just have to be creative with scarves and headbands until then.
