I ahd my hair highlighted and she used foil , now I have noticable breakage. Before I had always had papers used ii highlighting. Could this be the cause of the breakage?

Paper? You're positive it was paper before? I have never heard of using paper for the foiling process.

The breakage has to do with a number of possibilities: Overlapping the foils too much, foiling already fragile hair, using too high a volume developer, foiling hair that had too many chemicals already in it (perm, relaxer, excessive bleach...etc.), leaving the foils in too long, too long under heat..........there are so many possibilities. I would get a trim and a deep conditioning treatment if I felt I had breakage. I would also call the salon manager and ask him or her to look at it. If they are at fault, they should throw a deep conditioner in for ya. Good luck.

Re: foil versus paper for highlights?

My hair is down to my waist. This is the second time in 4 months that I have had highlights in my hair. My former colorist used a wax type paper. Then I moved across country and my new colorist uses foil. When she took them out she pulled and tugged , not knowing if this is something that happens, since I was use to the wax type that didn't pull my hair. I never had a problem with my hair on the crown of my head before. I feel like see damaged my hair pulling out the foils?
