What Worked For Me And What Didn't...
I have hair that used to be a light, mousy brown. It is also fine, thin AND long. I have colored it for years, a dark chocolate brown for the last three. It is at least 50% gray now, so maintenance was becoming a nightmare and I hope that eventually going to blond will help that out some. I decided to try this product not fixated on any one result other than lighter. I hoped I wouldnt have to color correct, but figured I would have to. First I tried the colorfix w/shampoo and it took out very little color at all. Then I tried the full strength treatment for ten minutes. It seemed to have helped but I made the mistake of using the final processing treatment. It made my hair crunchier. By the time I rinsed it out 3-5 minutes later, my hair was horribly tangled. I slowly worked that out with deep conditioner and it felt much better again. I lost a wad of hair, probably about a fifty cent piece size. Not awful, but not good. My hair was lighter by about two shades, but still about two shades from where I had hoped to have it. I decided to try another round without the processing step. I did it for 20 minutes with heat, this time I was careful to keep my hair straight and not tangle it. I took a lengthwise piece of plastic wrap to cover it and used heat from a blow dryer. I washed it with a tiny amount of chelating shampoo (White Rain extra body is supposed to be a good one for 69cents!) and did the deep conditioner again. I am so happy with the results. It is a dark strawberry blonde. I have lots of shades, high and low, that look natural. It will be no problem at all going with this look until I use another color on my hair and then I will probably go light golden blonde. Or try to, that is.
