oooh, Solkiki, I love the idea of combining light purples and dark purples.

I have reached a great hair dilemma. I last got it cut two months ago: a chin length bob, just a bit longer in the front than the back, with side sweep bangs. I love this cut, and would like to get it trimmed to be basically the same, but even a bit shorter in the back. On the other hand, I'm not sure if this cut is going to drive me crazy in the summer. Maybe I should just keep growing my hair now so that by the time it's hot and humid out I can get it all in a ponytail. But I really feel like this hair is me right now and I'm done with long hair for a while. Help?!

Cut it! Shorter in the back will keep you quite cool, and if you find the bangs to be bothersome, there are cute ways to pin/product them out of your face, or, like, headbands are totally hip now, so...

Mars, your answer made me happy! I do want to cut it. But it's not just the bangs I'm worried about. With the longer in front bit, which I love, my hair really falls forward and over my ears. This has been keeping my ears nice and warm this winter, which I'm afraid might mean I'll hate how it feels in the summer. But I suppose I could head band, bobby pin, barrette, etc. any hair that I need off me when it gets hot.

Listen to Mars. Pin is good.
A workmate has a bob like that & I keep thinking that it's already much longer than it actually is, because she often pins it back like that and it works so well. Like a totally different hairstyle.
(On the other hand, my hair will probably be like that in the summer, and it hates pins. It won't stay pinned up no matter what I do, even when it's quite short. Meh. We'll see.)

I am growing out the stacked bob and it is horribs. I am no good with barrettes. I am wearing the buff or a headband all the time, which at least is tolerable.

For some reason, I'm very curious about henna hair coloring right now. I've got dark/dirty blonde hair and would like to brighten it up some way. I don't want to be bright red but am not opposed to going slightly redder colored than I am now. Anyone use henna as someone with blonde hair? How dramatic was the change?

I need a good deep conditioner for dry hair. Like overbleached hair. Drugstore preferred but health food store works too.

henna'ed hair looks different in different lighting situations.

I just picked this up from WF - it was on sale for 5.99 - and I am surprised how little I need to use for how well it works. (I had some Alba stuff and it seemed that I needed globs of it for it to really work.)

Your roots are darker than mine. Also, your hair is gorgeous long & short. All those curls! I'm probably going to continue googling, one site said there was a neutral henna (cassia?) that could stain hair yellow? I don't even know. Since I don't *have* to do anything today I might be spending quite some time learning about this!

thanks. :-)

yeah, you can even mix cassia and henna together to get a more golden red if you like. (and if you leave the henna on for a shorter amount of time, or if you prepare it as a "gloss" it'll be lighter.) hennaforhair.com is very educational.

Pureology is owned by a company that tests now, L'Oreal I think? I miss their stuff.

Pureology got bought, I want to say about 6 or 7 years ago. I use Giovanni Nutrafix reconstruct conditioner. I just got my hair stripped and dyed, and this is helping a lot.

I love all of Giovanni's conditioning stuff, it makes my over leached hair feel like real hair again!

I just dyed mine a super light heathery purple.

The leave in didn't do much for me at all. I barely noticed any difference in my hair. The rinse-out argan stem cell conditioner is pretty good though, but not super heavy.

Same for me with the leave in.
