Topic: DAMAGED HAIR & NON CARING HAIRDRESSERS
Hi, I am a 53 year old menopausal woman and have had my hair colored for several years first doing it at home and the last 10+ years at salons. I have been having my new growth colored a dark blonde (level 7) with warm pale blonde highlights. My hair has been over processed twice in the last 4 months by inexperienced licensed people. I have been dealing with hair breakage, frizzies, dryness and dead dull looking hair. I practice a very holistic lifestyle and I know I need to get away from the chemical hair products, but I hate my gray and my natural hair color really doesn't flatter me. I am currently dealing with a lot of stress in my personal and family life and I know that doesn't help! I found a couple of hair care lines online that state that they are vegan and organic; Pureology and MOP. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these two lines? My natural color of hair is a dark dirty blonde with some red in it and I am over 50% gray. I have been told that I look better in neutral warm based colors. I would like to highlight my gray and liven up my natural hair color. Whatever color recommendations you could give me using your pure henna product would be great? I stopped taking a prescription medication about 6 weeks ago and I was told that it was still probably coming out of my scalp and wondered if that was true? I probably need to do a detox on my scalp? After I wash my hair my scalp is tight and dry and it itches a little. My hair is fine and I have soft natural curls and waves. I use an ionic hair brush on my hair 2-3 times a week. My scalp was so sore and painful from my last visit to the hair salon. I was wondering about your brushing/massaging techniques? Right now I am not doing anything to my hair except washing it with shampoos that have no SLS and no chemicals. I am currently using the Vital Image Renewal Shampoo, Hair Therapy Conditioner and their Hair Fixer spray mist, which is 100% organic. I just recently bought the C-System Pure Shampoo (sulfate free) by MOP and their conditioning styling spray. I have been letting my hair air dry. I have been using the spray on hair shine products on my hair. The spray on shine doesn't seem to last that long on my hair and it really does build up using it every day, so I have been backing off on using it. I just recently had my hair cut and it looks a little better! When you have damaged hair, it is just damaged until it is cut off. I will have to say its very difficult to live with damaged hair and hair color that you didn't ask for due to negligent errors in a salon that could have been avoided. I appreciate your response concerning what would be good to do for my hair and my scalp. Thank You!
FIRST OF ALL CONFRONT YOUR HAIRDRESSER!
after all if your scalp is in pain and your hair is damaged one needs to take back their power and go in and talk to the damaging agent!
Other then that:
When one is practicing a healthy and natural life style that takes into account all areas of ones body, emotions and mental arenas stress is not a good thing to go thru!
Yes your hair is beyond repair haircutting recommended as much as possible. Nothing will bring back stripped and bleached hair, nothing!
Detox is a good thing try our Zen Hair and scalp Detox.
Two process of blonde hair coloring is two too many!
HENNA FOR ALL REASONS:
YES if you are truly interested in your health then time and patience.
stop all chemical processes including all of the hair care products you have mentioned are all very commercial!
Henna try our marigold Blonde It could turn your grey into blonde and highlight the rest of the hair.
Read our henna page from cover to cover necessary to get re-educated.
There is nothing anywhere but HENNA for a natural life style.
its alittle experimental in the beginning but adjust as you go along with the henna. 100% of all our customers who have gone to henna now swear by it and will never use anything else honestly nothing else but!
please read thru our forum and educational literature.
You have some catching up on to do.
Great Journey Anthony Morrocco
