I am naturally brunette with red tones. I was going for the dirty blonde look. Well at first I went one shade lighter than I usually went and my hair went a darker brown. I thought maybe the wrong stuff was in this box. So, I called my friend and she suggested we go with a colour with no brassiness. Then my hair looked Orangy. So we decided to strip all the colour out and start over. We used Blondissm stripper. My roots were white about 2 inches and the rest(just past the shoulders) was bright orange(after 1hr. 45 mins.). Looked rather cool I thought but not publicly. So once more we put a medium blonde on my head. Well, let me tell you at this point my head felt like it was on fire. The colour came out really pretty but light light blonde and way too blonde for me with my dark eyebrows. Now it has been a week and I coloured again a medium blonde and it is exactly what i wanted. In this last week I have conditioned my hair to death and don`t even know how I have any hair left after what I have put it through. MY QUESTION IS: Is my hair still liable to fall out after all the abuse I have put it though?? I condition with a salon conditioner + shampoo from a beauty supply store in my area. It is a little dry but not too bad. I leave the conditioner in over night and rinse and recondition in the morning also adding leave in conditioner through the day. Does anyone know if it was going to all fall out would it have happened by now??? Really appreciate any help. I really love this honey blonde colour I have acheived at this point. Thanks~Carol
