Post Marti~

You seem to have logical answers. I have a question for ya. I had my hair permantly colored last week. I've been getting my hair colored for 8 years now. Well my actual color is brown with a reddish tint. I hate the red tint, so my last colorist would use some sort of blond concotion to lighten my hair and after a few weeks it would fad then look reddish brown.

I decided to use a different hair place. I asked them to color my hair brown. Well the guy that did it turned it BLACK..I could've slapped him. I asked if another colorist could fix it. Well they used some sort of color remover,not bleach, on my hair which turned it back to the reddish brown. They then started all over again and reapplyrd a different color. It was not black but I think it is still too dark. Well after 5 hours there I wasn't about to do anything else to my hair. My gosh my scalp was soooo sore.

The next time I go to get my hair colored, why can't I get a light brown color on my hair without it being red?? Should I get hightlights. I so afraid permantely coloring my hair and hightlights will dry it up??? What do you think??

I'm confused...I want my hair color to look like Jennifer Anisten.

If there are too many red hilites, the stylist is using a color that contains too much red pigment. If the description of the color says "warm" brown or just plain "brown" it more than likely contains red or red/orange as one of the pigments. The stylist should be able to counteract this by mixing your regular color with an 'ash' brown. Ash contains a certain amount of green pigment which will counter-act the unwanted red tones. Mix the color in equal proportions (usually one ounce of each) with a 10 volume peroxide. 10 volume will deposit color without any lift. 20 volume will lift for the first 20 minutes, then deposit for the next 10 minutes.
