I love altering my look and experimenting with changes and as a result I decided to lighten my hair. I dyed my hair with Clairol Professional Soy 4 Plex Liquicolor in a light brown then and added some highlights. I loved the color, but it did have some orangy tints and started to look brassy over time.
Furthermore, I have always heard positive reviews on the Devachan Hair Salon, as you know they specialize in curly hair. So I wanted to check them out. I went to the Devachan in New York City, in Soho. I initially wanted to come in to get more highlights done professionally, but the hair colorist recommended that I should get a color correction instead to tone down the orangy tones and also because the bleach would have altered my curl pattern.
The ambiance was great and the staff seemed really friendly. Although as a first-time customer it was not what I expected. The colorists helper seemed inexperienced with my type of hair (as far as tugging the hair pieces instead of being gentle not to cause any breakage). When it came to cleansing my hair, she used hot water , did not detangle properly and dried my hair with a regular towel as opposed to a microfiber towel. That just alarmed me because I thought the salon specialized in this type of field. The hair colorist suggested that I keep the deep conditioner on for a few days to let the color set in, which I totally preferred due to the fact that I have read and saw first hand on how they style your hair and was not too crazy about that.
I left the Deep Conditioner on for a day actually and then used Curl Junkies “Repair Me”, along with the Heutiful Hair Steamer and wala! My curls sprung back to life!
I was completely happy with the results and also keep in mind that it is crucial to deep condition regularly especially if you have color treated hair!
