Bleach damaged hair
Asked Feb 7, 2007, 01:49 PM
About a year ago I decided I wanted to be blond. Of course, my natural hair color is dark brown so I had to bleach it. Well, stupid me, I didn't buy enough of the mixture so it ended up all blotchy. My mother-in-law came to help me. She bought some blonde dyes that don't require bleach to even it out without damaging. But the result, though even, it was an aweful "yellow". So my friend thought that all I needed on top of the yellow was a color. So I picked a beautiful blonde color that actually made it look awesome. Thing is that after 3 weeks the color faded and I needed to color again.
So after a year I decided to go back to brown. Picked a color, dyed it, and it was awesome... but 1 week later I could already see the bleached yellow blonde. What can I do to fix it? Is there a way to condition my hair, so permanent hair dye stays longer. My hair is so damaged I don't know what else to do... I've conditioned it with every single treatment there is, but hairdye does not stay. And I realized lately that I've lost some hair (which all my hair is medium length, this some of the hairs on the top of my head look like the been chopped off at an inch).
Thanks so much... and help. I read everywhere online, and, of course, they talk about hair color gone wrong (which is an understatement in my case), but nobody talks about what to actually do, except of paying specialized hair colorists to fix color problems.
Thanks!! I'll be waiting for an answer.
