Alright, I'm searching and searching through the memories, I KNOW I've seen it somewhere but I don't know where.
I bleached my hair last night with horrendous results, (as per the post that assploded, cuz I'm obnoxious i guess) and I want to bleach again and tone and then I have some nice veggie dyes, 3 different types of purples that I was able to procure today.
I also got a toner, which is a great big whoopee, because I have never heard of such a thing in my life.
Now, I know this causes humongous damage, so I was browsing around for a protein conditioner because well, I don't want my hair to fall out. Patchy bald spots with random bright orange hair is not really very stylish, I don't think. But, I live in a little redneck town and there was none to be found, anywhere.
So, I got cholesterol conditioner. It's the only thing I thought might be even close, don't ask me why, i was thinking, hey, protein, cholesterol, kinda close, both things that're in food, right? And it's got aloe vera in it, it said, so it shouldn't make the dreads TOO loose.
I have a very important business meeting tomorrow. Going into it with multicolored purple dreads will not be as bad going into it with horrible neon orange and brown rooted dreads. They know I'm crazy. Purple hair looks kinda groomed. Right now, I just look.. well, chlorinated.
Help? Lish? Is a cholesterol conditioner ok to use, to kind of help out the hair whilst I smack it around with all the chemicals? They were very very very healthy before hand,and they're still pretty soft after the bleaching, not crunchy or anything, I just was reading all the warnings about the toner.
EDIT: I've taken Lish's advice(duh) and I've gone crying to my fab friend Adamo, who is a stylist at one of the only actual "Salons" here in town. He has promised he will fix me up as he is the bleach queen, has tsk'd at why I didn't just get him to do the whole process from the start, and he's on his way over to assess the damages. I'm scared of his dissaproving lowering of the eyebrows. He is better at guilt-tripping then my mother.
We'll see how she goes.
Couldn't find info on this in the memories (but then again I didn't really look that hard):
Blow drying month old dreads, good idea or bad idea?
I would really like to see a "timeline" section in the memories. should i send the petition out now or later? that is, how could this be achieved?
