I am so annoyed and upset right now and just might need to get it off my chest.
I went to get the ends of my hair toned (put toner on) because I had them dyed a couple years ago and they were getting a bit brassy.
I’ve been growing my hair out for 3 years because I want to eventually cut off the dyed parts and have my natural hair! It has been a long process to get back to my natural hair and I’ve been taking very good care of it.
So…for some reason, at the hair salon yesterday, they put the toner all over my whole head. I freaked out for a second and said “wait, I’m trying to grow my natural hair out, this won’t damage it at all, will it?” And she said “oh no! It’ll just make it a bit shiny but won’t penetrate in or anything. It won’t really have an effect.” So I said okay….against my better judgement believed her.
Anyway, after the appointment I noticed my hair felt really weird and almost like it had a shiny glaze on it that I really did not like. But I figured it was just the shampoo they used.
So I washed it last night. And then again today. And then again 3 more times because I got desperate. And my hair texture feels completely different!!! I’m kind of freaking out.
It feels kind of like…frizzy almost. Not quite but just has a lot of fly always when my hair has always been silky and soft!
Is it possible that the toner permanently damaged my hair? Or will it feel back to normal eventually?
I asked my fiance’s brothers girlfriend who is a hair dresser and she totally freaked me out by saying it’ll never feel like it did and it’s been permanently damaged.
But by a toner?? Is that possible? The hair dressers assured me it would have no effect on my natural hair.
I’m just upset that I might have to wait another 3 years to grow my hair out again.
Any hair dressers here? Or others with experience? I realize I might be over reacting or something but I guess with the wedding close I’m kind of hyper sensitive to anything going wrong with my hair! Plus I put in 3 years to grow out my natural hair.
Thanks for letting me vent a bit I just feel kind of upset 🙁
