LadyRenee's Guide to Having cool hair:
**note all of the products below should and will need to be purchased
at a beauty supply place.. as I think drug store products suck..
substitute equivalents as needed
1. Start with healthy hair. In order to do this I recommend using good
products. ie Nexxuss etc..seeing we cant all afford thatkind of stuff...
the generics usually work well.
-- Excellent Conditioners
-I/C protein treatment
-Alphohgee Treatment for damaged hair FOLLOW DIRECTIONS
-Bannanna Conditioner from the Body Shop
2. Decide what you want to do.
3. If you are dying your hair..just like a standard color
I advise these:
Wella- blue black, Black Cherry (nice color)
Loreal- Aurelle Cherry Plum *great plum color, not too extreme
but quite pretty* (Its also a temporary and quiet cheap)
Any Of there aubrons are usally nice
Clairol- 70R Plum brown.. name says it all..its nice
also their amethyst is nice (beautiful brights)
Most all of there reds are nice too
TRY AND AVOID TORRIDS.. it is death to your hair
(they look cool..but you pay a price in the end)
*tip* put a high intensity conditioner right in the mixture of dye
*tip* use 20 volume developer...not any higher
4. BUT I want to manic panic my hair! and its already black.. or another
1. Bleach your hair. This is a must unless you are a blond..
Products that work:
--Effasol by loreal (use developer not water)
--Torrids Platinum Lightening ( its death but it
works..its a high power tint)
--SpeedLighT by Wella
--(rumors that 7th stage works by clairol but I
this can take SEVERAL tries. It took me 8 bleaches over 6 weeks
to get my pretty purple hair...At Times I bleached my hair
3 times in day for several hours.. but I still have soft
hair.. becasue it was healthy and well conditioned when I
Leave it in for up to an hour a process..when the
bleach dries...it quits working so mist it lightly with warm
water. (It reactivates it)
CONDITION between each process! Or watch your hair fall
2. The actual Manic Panic, (you can also use Punky Colors or
1. Apply, WEAR GLOVES... Shit wear a body suit..it stains
2. For even application use a bottle not plop it on and when
you think your are done.. slick it back and use a
toothbrush to do your roots.
3. Leave it in as LONG as possible and apply heat if you can.
5. OH FUCK I made a mess
well honestly folks.. you are in trouble.. manic panic can
ruin many many things. (like my Mom's bathroom walls)
General Substances that will clean you (ears etc )
and your house
-Finger Nail polish Remover (with acetone)
-Clean Touch (made to remove hair dye..works well)
- Oxy, Noxema etc.. rubbing pads
I think this is it folks..
