If you’ve got ‘roots’ right after hilighting, you need a new stylist.

I got highlights for four years and you should NEVER have roots right after leaving the salon.

And yes, it’s true, if you keep getting your hair hilighted, it’ll keep getting blonder and blonder. You’ll need to have lowlights put in every third or fourth time as well as the highlights in order to keep your hair from getting *too* blonde.

Is she only highlighting the hair at your crown…? You shouldn’t be seeing any roots right after having it done.

@LilySparks:  That’s insane. I honestly think it has nothing to do with your hair type and everything to do with the stylist.

I have VERY thick, course, wavy/curly hair literally down to my waist and when I was getting it highlighted it was never a problem for my stylist, ever. It just costs a little more because your hair requires more product.

You need to find a different stylist. It doesn’t matter what your hair type is, you should never ever see roots right after getting it done.

Getting all-over color just means that you’re going to have to get it re-done every couple of weeks because your roots will be in an *extremely* obvious solid line when your hair starts growing back out. If you think hightlighted roots are bad, just wait until you see the root problem all-over color causes.

Maybe take a picture to the stylist so she knows what kind of color you’re going for? I’ve done all-over color in a demi-permanent, but as the other poster said you’ll have a pretty harsh line when the roots start to grow out if you do an all over color.

@LilySparks:  It sounds like your natural color is a bit dark to do just highlights.

If your hair is dark brown and you’ve got platinum highlights, I imagine that some of your hair would still be brown… or it would be all-over color, no?

I think I’d just go darker if you don’t want to have your whole head bleached.
