So I started getting grey hair a little prematurely in life - it's not bad, but it bothers me. It bothered me enough that a few years ago I started dying my hair with that drug store box wash out crap that doesn't actually ever wash out. Eventually I had to start going darker and darker to get rid of the red/orange/brassy color and I began to realize that I no longer knew what my natural color was, but it wasn't this dark brown/orange color that I had acquired.
(brassy/reddish/orangy color - so not natural!)
So this week, for the first time in my life, I had my hair professionally colored. I got highlights. It's so much lighter than my hair has been for the past 5 years that It's taking some adjusting to, but I think I like it. What do you think? Be honest...
In an effort to maintain these chemically processed locks properly, I've started looking into sulfate and paraben free shampoos, but I am so confused. There are so many, and so many have ingredients with similar names to sulfates, but are supposedly okay. I don't get it. I also don't want to spend a whole bunch of $ on something that doesn't work well, or smells nasty. I'm a nursing student - I'm broke! The boy loves me, but not enough to spend $50 on shampoo. Have any of you picked up on this SLS free craze? What kind of 'poo do you use for your 'do?
