I've had virgin hair since 1990. it's past the middle of my back, soft, shiny, almond w/ golden highlights. i've never dyed it,highlighted it, blow-dried, curled, or put in any styling agents. i wanted a change so last night i used clairol's natural instincts--strawberry blonde. the color hardly even took, but my hair is a little more coarse, not as soft, and doesn't have quite the original highlights. this dye lasts 24 shampoos, has no ammonia and very little peroxide. i'm very worried that i've damaged my hair now. will this make it not as beautiful and naturally healthy as it was, or will it be fine, back to normal after 24 shampoos. is there a really great, moisturizing conditioner someone can recommend for someone with lots and lots of medium fine (more fine than medium), more dry hair?is there a repair treatment i can get? or maybe i don't need to worry, and this treatment is not that harmful. is natural instincts a damaging dye? if not, how often can i use it--every 3 months??? if so, any other tips on how to restore the softness, natural highlights, health, and sheen to my beautiful hair?thank you,Ali

I'm guessing almond as a light brown?! Semi-permanent color will not lift color (only deposit) so it probably had little effect on your natural color but deposited a little on your highlights.Give it 2-3 wks. and you will have your natural color back.Natural Instincts is a nice line. Try KMS Strategy for conditioning. To go into a strawberry blond you might need a permanent color.You should consult with a professional.Good luck!

Ali,I can't help with the haircolor question but if you could get a friend or family member to trim your hair and tell them you only want the smallest amount possible off (I do this by placing my pointer finger and thumb almost together but not quite and that gives the person trimming the right idea space wise how much to take off-one person's inch is another's 2 inches!). As for shampoos, Nexxuss Therapee and Humectress conditioner hasn't failed me yet, although the shampoo contains fixatives, so you must watch for build up now and again (with my hair, it doesn't build-up that often at all). Also, as I almost always mention, watch out for them silicones! For a lot of people including myself, they can turn your hair dry and even damage it. I try to avoid them altogether. Hope this has been some help to you.Holly
