Pump It Up!

Got my 8 week highlights/lowlights and trim. My hairdresser, God love her, does not understand.
I spend eight weeks attempting to dry out and damage my hair enough so that it will be full and voluminous. My hair is soft and flat. I hate that about my hair.
A person must do a certain degree of abuse to one's hair to achieve the volume I so desire.
And so, having been high/low lighted and trimmed I have also endured the conditioning that my hairdresser so feels I need. I think she was more alarmed than ever at the state of my back-combed, root boosted, high volume sprayed hair today. Usually I bake under a dryer with my foilies. Today I simply sat, right there at room temperature. And then the deep conditioning.
It's gonna take me a week to unhealth my hair.
Can I get an amen?

No amens here sister, I can't seem to make it to the 8 week mark b/c my hair is too thick, dry and coarse. It takes an hour just to blow dry and straighten it, understand it must be straightened or I have an enormous afro. I dream of hair like yours!

Bring on the Root Boost and the Volumizer Spray. You'll never
see this chick with flat hair!
As a teen in the late 60's, I
just can't do flat hair!!

Wait until your hair turns gray ... then it may get a bit of volume and turn frizzy and hard to color ;) ... and it will be four weeks instead of 8 weeks.

well i went back to the darker color just in time for autumn. I told my hairdresser I wanted one shade darker and apparently got five shades!
