what to do!

Ive been wanting to do something with my hair for ages now!
Its finally growing long now. Its just below my shoulders now and my hair grows really slow. I love the length i've been dieing to have it longer again i've been keeping it a bit shorter than it is now because the fact when my hair grows longer it starts to get thin because i have fine hair. I was always cutting my hair myself because NO hair place has ever done my hair where they've kept what i wanted in mind its always what they wanted. We found a new place my mom got hers done there, and i tagged along to see what she'd say. WELL she wants to make my hair DARKER. My dads hairs black my moms hair is a lighter brown, so my hairs a dark brown! to me if it was darkened it would be close to black! i told her i wanted to lighten it because if you don't put something else in it to break up the dark its too dark!

Im an avid hair straightener because my hair has a natural curl to it that leaves my hair looking like i stood outside in the wind for hours and never combed my hair.

I haven't had it cut by anyone for years for the fact they've never done it where i've loved it.
So now im not sure what to do with it! I dont want to completly lose my length but i need something that will make it look fuller and something to brighten it up!

Any ideas would be so helpful!

Re: what to do!

Have you thought about highlights? They always brighten up your hair color and look beautiful. My advice is to start off with natural ones a few shades lighter than your hair color. If you go too light at first, it may not look natural and instead may look streaky. The first time I ever got highlights in my medium brown hair, I got caramel colored ones. Next time I got blonde ones and continued to get the blonde. Both looked great and they would gradually lighten my hair as I went each time. I recommend foil highlights... I wasn't happy with the cap kind and never got them again after the one time. Also, the at-home kits often don't come out the right color, so it's worth the money at a salon (especially if you want blonde). Just go for lots of thin highlights all over so they blend in nicely.

For your style, you can always consider layers. Just tell the hairstylist (if you decide to try that one out) that you are looking for more volume. Layers are great... you can make your hair look thicker or thinner depending on how you fix it. My hair is too thick and heavy, so they cut a lot of the bulk out of my hair, but they keep it bouncy with volume. Try looking at some pictures in hairstyle magazines that you can take in with you!

Re: what to do!

Okayy, first dont dye your hair.. its really bad. I havent and all of my hairstylist compliment my hair. Its YOUR hair, tell them what you want done, youre in control not them not anyone. Use lemon juice and tan, sun naturally lightens it but lemon juice helps, everyone asks me if i dye it and i tan alot so thats why, also.. it will get darker if you dont tan!
