Hair Color

Recommended Posts

The good thing about young hair and scalps is they can handle that dye abuse and bounce back so much easier than when you're out of your teens. I've used Manic Panic, la riche which is thicker and more snot like less drippy, and Jerome Russel for crazy colors. Artic fox is great when it comes to truly bright shades that aren't as easy to find and is vegan and less damaging/chemical-y.

Would be most interested in a brand that is not overly complicated and does not damage the hair (or the least possible). 

I use "regular" (as in blonde) box color -- so no help there -- but I would recommend her getting Olaplex to repair her hair if she's going to use bleach.  (It completely transformed my hair, which was  porous and fragile - like wet seaweed - from years of colouring and blow drying and curling irons,  etc. After the first treatment,  the texture /thickness went back to what I had twenty + years ago -  I've used tons of products, but that stuff delivers. And if your daughter has virgin hair, she should protect it from jump.)

eta: I realize this sounds like some kind of paid endorsement  -- like I get a kickback or free product from Olaplex (I wish -- it's not cheap;) but it's not, I just loved what it did for my hair.

Thanks for all the feedback - very helpful!  And brand recommendations because I seriously know nothing.

She's talked with her 18 yo cousin who lives on the same street as my Mom so they've decided to do it together.  His hair is long - think Bob Seger mid 1970s hair.

Olaplex......the treatment, repair kit, shampoo?  I saw a lot of types on Amazon.

I tried doing my hair color once and I have to say it's the worst decision ever. It didn't turn out the way I like so I would rather just hand it over to the experts. 

If you are getting a more complicated hair color style, let's say highlights or ombre, then better pay a professional to do it if you want it to look the way it should be.

I'm doing my own color and cut through covid and it's actually awesome!  I couldn't be any happier.  Hope it continues. Granted, I do have years of experience, though, I'm no professional. lol

I normally have my hair cut and coloured every 4 weeks.  I missed 3 appointments during Stay at Home.   As my bangs got longer, I had to pull my hair back with a hairband and stray silver hairs started becoming visible at the crown. After about 8 weeks, I used Clairol Root Touch Up. When I saw my hairdresser at week 13, I said "What do you think of my colour?"  She said "Wow, that's held up really well."  If she can't tell the difference, why am I paying for professional colour rather than $7.95 at Walmart?
