    I wanted some blonde highlights in my hair (which was brown/uncoloured). I went to an hairdressing school (i paid £25 it was cheaper as they were training) and showed them the first picture as being the colour I wanted the highlights to be. A young girl did it and as she was rinsing off the colour asked the person in charge for advice as my hair was a little 'warm coloured'. They discussed what toner to use to get it a cool colour like in the pic. They tried two toners and then the hairdresser in charge told me buy some 'purple shampoo' to get it more blonde. My hair feels very dry/damaged at the ends and im not going to complain or anything but its not the blonde colour that i wanted it.

    Just wanted advice, will this purple shampoo that she said get work?
    Heres the pic i wanted and the second pic is my hair lol.

    Firstly, It's important to note that opinion is subjective and that it should not be held in high regard.

    For me personally I think it's always important to relate these kind of situations with what other people have been through before.

    The great man himself once said "For every Flower thy see, was once just a simple root". In other words the root of your hairs may not be impressive to you at the moment, but you may soon realise they sprout in to a succulent Afro.

    I hope this answers your question.
