Yeah, I've had some pretty fried hair...

The neat thing I always found with Manic Panic was that it made wicked conditioner. The bleach would strip it, then I would refrain from using the bleach-enclosed conditioning creme, so that the hair would be like a big colour-sponge. And with most of the colours, after a couple applications, my hair came out feeling more-or-less normal.

I don't think the professional bleaches themselves are any less harmful, it's all peroxide-based. I think they just have better quality conditioners and oils to repair the damage with afterwards.

I've also found the same damaging effects with any permanent DIY hair colour: red, black, blonde... it didn't matter. The black surprised me, since it shouldn't have been taking anything out of my hair, but the dye has to break down the hair somewhat in order to stick?

I do my own bangs & along the sides. I've never dyed it (unless you count the sun bleaching it as a child/teen) although I have been considering getting some copper highlights or something. Unsure what as yet.

I go back and forth between diy and professional. I love the look of professional.

Right now my hair is grown out from a professional cut... i have a box of dye in my bedroom waiting to be used...

I need a cut - but will wait... cause I'd really like to get it professionally done

I get my hair cut by pros, either in a salon, or by friends at home (that are licensed). I use DIY colors, but get someone else to apply it for me, so that it is done evenly and completely.
