We recently received a call from someone who had her hair highlighted by another salon. After explaining the trauma she felt, she asked a really great question:
“How long should I wait before I get my hair colored again?”
This is a GREAT QUESTION!!!! We understand the impulse to want to fix your hair immediately after a traumatic color job, but hang in there if you can. The structural integrity of your hair is at stake!
Based on the type and amount of highlighting, we recommended this woman wait 3 weeks before making any color corrections. Her hair needs to find its balance first.
Now let’s say she just couldn’t wait that long; she has options. She would need an OLAPLEX treatment STAT! Defend that color damaged hair! And rather than recoloring, we could tone the hair by just adding pigment to her stripped down hair. But we still recommend giving your hair a rest. #hairsalvation
