So it's highlighted a second time in one sitting, and it's still not what I had in mind. I asked for an overall platinum blonde look, but instead I have strands of copper lending a much darker look than requested. I want to process it again. I can't stand how it looks!
Is there a conditioner or product that can be applied to protect hair before highlighting it. The second highlight she gave me was a partial, versus a full like the first time. There is concern about frying my hair. Help!
I agree with MCW. Your hair will grow back ( I've had this happen, not the beautician's fault). Live with it, let it grow as much as you can take and then be really specific when you go to get it done again. If you can, grow it out (maybe highlighting to give a lift/lightness around your face). If you use the same colorist, make sure that both of you know what you're aiming for.
Take a picture with you when your hair is finally ready to be treated agan. That way the hairdresser will know exactly what you want.
YES! Your hair will get fried if it was highlighted twice on the same day.
I'm a licensed cosmetologist and advise you to live with it and give the hair a rest. Any person's hair cannot take all that abuse of bleaching and coloring.
Go to a professional beauty supply store and buy a good conditioner. Talk with someone at the store and explain what your problem is. While you're conditioning your hair, get regular hair cuts and wait until the healthy hair grows back.
