I was hoping i could get some help and/or advice. Having used Devacurl, I noticed my hair was falling out more then usual, so I stopped using it. (lets just say my hair had never felt softer, bouncy, and curlier, not to mention frizz free than ever before!! I was heart broken). I purchased Matrix total results curl and noticed the first time I used it my hair did not fall out as much but whilst washing out the conditioner my hair felt like mush, it was weird! but once dry felt dry and rough (like someone who has over bleached their hair, but I have not).
I then tried the VERB volume line today and again while washing out the conditioner, it felt mushy but then dry and tangly once it was washed out. When it was still wet I pulled on a section of my hair and noticed that the 6-8 strands snapped easily and felt and looked like mush. I freaked out and went to the salon and they gave me k pak joico colour therapy shampoo and conditioner explaining whether it is moisture overload or protein overload this will balance it out.
If I continue using this product for a long time do I have to worry about protein or moisture overload? Or is it a balance between protein and moisture? I just want to be able to stick to one product for years. I also noticed that using VERB volume today my hair fell out more then usual like it did with devacurl, so Iím coming to the conclusion that CG products arenít for me. I am terrible with ingredient lists and not sure what to think!

Hello Edwina, I suggest you use either Joico or Redken products. When the hair is brittle and breaking it needs repair products so Kpak from Joico and Extreme from Redken.
Use the shampoo, then treatment mask for 20minutes, twice weekly to start with then once weekly. Then apply the conditioner, comb through and rinse after a few minutes. After a month your hair will have improved significantly and then you can use a more moisturising product line. I still alternate a little as hair changes with season so more moisture is needed during summer months etc. I do hope this helps
|Sophie asks: |
Hello, I have black hair and have been using temporary black colour to cover my grey for years but now feel black is no longer the colour for me because 1) new growth is very obvious and 2) my skin tone has changed and I feel the black is now too stark.I have long hair that grows fast.
My grey is everywhere now so waiting for it to grow out to my shoulders is not an option. I really need to make a change.
Is there anyway I can change my whole hair colour? Ideally I would try a "brown" colour (suited to my skin colour)plus have another colour high lighted and allow my grey to grow through. Itís now causing me stress so will consider anything. Look forward to hearing from you.

Sophie, I would suggest you have a full head of highlights to break up the black, then select something like dark natural blonde or lightest natural brown normally round a level 6. Try the new colour as a semi permanent which will tone and blend your root regrowth as well tone the highlights. You should then be able to continue with the level 6 as a semi unless you want to cover the grey. Good luck
|Brittney asks: |
Why wonít pastels (fashion colours) take in my hair? I am currently a level 9 bleached blonde. I have tried semi-permanent and demi-permanent professional colour and nothing seems to hold to my hair. I want to go either a pastel peach or a light lavender, but Iím not sure what product and ratio to use because nothing had worked thus far.

Hi Brittney, Sometimes a build up of styling products, minerals and old colour can prevent colour from taking properly and lasting. I suggest you use a deep cleanse shampoo, leave on for 5 minutes, rinse and repeat. Apply the colour of choice to clean dry hair and make sure its thoroughly saturated. Process for 10 minutes longer than suggested. Rinse and shampoo with a colour safe shampoo and you should be fine. Make sure moving forward you always use colour safe shampoo and try a colour conditioner as that will help maintain the colour. Good luck
