hair [Apr. 29th, 2004|02:06 pm]

i got about three inches (wet) cut off. sometimes i forget how much more significant three inches when cut wet becomes when it dries (curls) it's still below my shoulder, but it's curling tighter-more like darxus's hair. we have a "treatment plan" in place for my hair, which includes cutting out most of this purple and putting in (purple) streaks by the end of summer. she's also the only hairdressor who i've actually gotten to go near my bangs since they snapped off a few years ago (oh sh*t. that's right. there IS such a thing as too much bleach) she was a little...ditzy, but nice, and really knew what she was talking about (i don't LOOK like someone who grew up in a salon, but i did. between waxings, hair trims, my mother getting hers cut every 3 weeks, and my mother getting her nails done every 10 days... yea...) which was good. gave me leave-in-over-night deep conditioning stuff, and the price was reasonable ($18 for the cut, $12 for the conditioning treatment 20 min under the dryer that she did while i was in there, and then $14 for the stuff. $5 tip) she's willing to take a look at the dye i use and possibly put the color in herself, after she does the streaks. i'm going in for a slight trim in 4 weeks. so my hair might be getting slightly shorter for a while, but yea, in the long run, it will be good. paying people to bleach my hair correctly, i think, is worth it. as is, oh, getting it trimmed more than twice in the past two years :-)

ok, off to work i go :-)

Sounds like a good and clueful hairdresser. I have only one person who I let cut my hair; she's at the Phillip Ciampa salon in Wakefield. So, when can I see the new hairstyle? And did the email I sent the other day get through?

Nchanter went to the stylist i go to- she's good, and wicked nice...

Mom used to drive back up to Melrose to get her hair cut, right after we moved away. there was a guy at her salon who'd cut her hair as short as she wanted it, and be funny while he did it.

mom wears her hair really short though...

"IS such a thing as too much bleach"

I know my reasoning is probably faulty, but I like dyeing my hair because it seems to thin it a bit, and damage it so it doesn't want to curl so much...which is easier for me to deal with (I really hate how thick it is). I keep fearing I'll overdo it someday, though...

hmmm...

if you, every six months or so, apply a neutral henna treatment right after you dye it, you probably won't kill your hair too much.

you'll want the neutral henna though, because the stuff reacts really oddly with dye or bleach.

trust me on this one...

Dunno about that. I've had some allergic reactions to dyes that contain henna, and I don't know if it was the henna itself or some other ingredient in the "natural" dyes. It took me years to figure out, too--anaphylactic reactions, even minor ones, are scary. That's what allergy tests are for, I guess. Thanks.

huh. in that case, stay the hell away from henna.

or find out if it IS the henna, because you can get it pretty pure, but i don't recomend doing anything that will kill you.

'cause, you know, then we wouldn't have you around to talk to.

no problem- i like them, and so i don't ever mind sending people their way.

Joanne is my stylist, and Nchanter's (and, actually Nazier's, unless she's decided to find a hairdresser closer to home)

all the women there are great though, and from what I've seen, they'll do just about exactly what you ask them to.

you are sounding girly like me... eek I'm afraid.

and as a side note: a week from Monday I'll be out of school and probably consistantly bored. We should do dinner sometime in May and catch up. I can fill you in on fun gossip, like about Chris Wood's new girlfriend.

yay you for cheap haircuts! i found my dream stylist at Judy Jetson Hair... and, well... thank goodness i have a good job now so i can keep going to her. i'd really like to have her dye it for me, but that would probably cost way more than i can afford...
