We’ve all been there, colored our hair and it turns a ghastly color! Oh no, whatever shall I do? If you’re anything like me(and I pray you aren’t lol) you think, hey I’m just going to redo it, it should be fine. DO NOT!!! I implore you to wait a few days. You may think your hair is in good condition, or able to take the barrage of chemicals you’re about to throw its way. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. But to be on the safe side, please wait. You’ll thank me later. Let me begin by telling you about my latest hair mishap.
Now I’m the type of person to change my hair color often, and I’ve never had a problem bleaching and recoloring and bleaching again. Sure my hair would get gummy, and straw like. But generally speaking, it was healthy enough to just get a trim and voila, back to its normal self. It wasn’t until my second pregnancy that did my hair in. Wouldnt take color properly and trying to bleach it was a nightmare. I had Several layers of London Lilac in my hair and trying to color remove that with Color Oops was a task in itself. I never really did get a decent turnaround. After several attempts, I gave in and went to a salon. I generally don’t do this as it can be costly, but seeing the mess my hair was in(uneven tones all around) I decided to go to a professional to straighten out the mess I had made. A color correction, deep conditioning, cut and $180 dollars later, my hair was slightly better, colorwise.
It was still very damaged and straw-like, so I began an intensely deep and moisturizing conditioning treatment using Shea Moisture Anti-Breakage Masque and Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque alternating between the two for the next several months. My hair slightly improved and by then I wanted another changeup. I colored my hair a pretty dark brown(my husband only likes Dark hair or Platinum Blonde. -_-). It was a gorgeous dark brown color, I absolutely loved it. The only problem was every time I showered the water ran muddy. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It was bad enough that even when I sweat it stained my clothes. After the second go, I decided id go blonde again. Color stripped it, and again it didn’t work too well. That’s when I came across this little gem. Vitamin C and Dandruff shampoo. I thought oh, what a godsend. It worked more or less, it did strip more color out of my hair.
