I can't get my hair to stop breaking. I can't cut it anymore or I will have no hair. Does yours break? If so, how do you prevent it?

natorade, yes mine breaks. Once you've done the sort of damage that I've done to mine, it won't stop until it grows out. Things that will help though are protein treatments, that will help to rebuild the hair shaft, and of course no heat and gentle when brushing.

I'm not lying when I say I have a chemical haircut!

thanks for the advice too i know i have a big goal but i really hope i can go for it and achieve it. Mine is currently collar length which i think is good growth after starting at a buzz in january. what do u think?
to answer ur questionj when i go to bed i let my hair damp and just wake up and have a shaggy look. I know its not as long as urs tho.


Longest I've had it would be mid back. I loved my long hair and I miss it dearly!!!

Actually that's really amazing growth! Are you doing anthing special?

Pburgh, if you're at work i'd say a ponytail (depending on where you work) and for free time anything goes! That's what's great about long hair, you have so many options!

natorade, I got it done at the hairdressers. I was planning on doing it myself but I couldn't order the professional products. Because my hair was platinum, they had to put on what's called a filler, to add back warm tones and prevent the color turning green. The blow dried that into my hair, towled off the excess, then put the auburn brown on. It has faded alot, and I actually really like it now, she did it a bit darker because of this. I also got her to leave blonde "paint drips" out the add a bit of interest.

sorry to ask so many questions. i was curious if you went to a master colorist to get your color done or just a hairdresser that has a lot of experience with color. did they use a semi perm or permanent color? my moms friend that has been a hairdresser for 20 years had mentioned that i would need a filler for my hair but i have never had a hairdresser put a filler in my hair before and thats where my moms friend says they were going wrong. i would go to my moms friend but she lives in another state. i just want to be as knowledgable as i can when i go in to have the color put in. i am extremely paranoid now to have anyone touch my hair. i would just let the blonde grow out if it didn't have so much orange in it.

I just went to my usual hairdressers, they had only ever done my roots there, and just one time because I did them myself. I had my extensions done there as well. She actually used a permanent colour. She actually asked me which one I wanted, but I could see the point in going for a semi if I wanted it to stay dark.

You will need a filler if:
-you're hair is porous, it will help hold the hair color longer
- if your hair color is uneven
-if you need to adjust the tone of your hair (in my case I went from cool blonde to warm brown, so they filler they put on was bright orange!)

Because the ends are damaged! Frustrating!!! Cry

I think braids are cool but I've never seen a bun on a guy I don't think. You'll have to show us.

oh boy do i know how you feel. my ends are still damaged and breaking off like crazy and i already have my hair cut to practically a pixie. that's why iam afraid to have anyone try and fix the color. i am so afraid they will damage what little bit of hair i have left, and i will have to shave it off. i am hoping so much that my hair color will be better by new years and it will have grown a bit for a better cut. i am suppose to go to london for new years and i really would hate to run into my old boyfriend with this horrendous hair of mine lol

Ally I know what u mean about ends. they def are frustrating u put all that time into growing your hair really long only to get like an inch off because of ends. its like taking a step backward :( Braids are def cool and i can get some small ones now which are cool :) Ill def post some pics of a bun :) I have to wear one for work so I hope it turns out well. what styles do u do?

Natorade thanks for the feedback :) BSL is awesome  and im sooo glad his bun looks good. is it tight or messy? I know ill prob do a tight one at the base of my neck so i hope it turns out good :) does ur friend plan on growing his hair longer and with it curly does he ever straighten it?
