Denise, thank you very much for the information. I wish I were in Denver (went there on my honeymoon 18 years ago and loved it) so you could help me with my hair. If we travel there in the future, I may be looking you up. I have a couple of follow-up questions based on your response.
1) To answer your question, my hair is about shoulder length, mostly one length with some slight layering at the ends to help it flip out when I style it. It doesn't look horrible at the moment - I'm able to tame it with products and can even get it to shine most days. But that's going to change rapidly as the new growth comes in. Fortunately, we're heading into the fall and winter months, which means less humidity here, so I've picked a good time of year to do the grow-out. My hair is fragile, though, and becoming moreso. Which is why I'm trying to make the move to TR now - before things get really bad.
2) Unfortunately, my stylist does pull the color through during the last 3-7 minutes of my coloring to refresh the color. For some reason, the color fades very badly after just a few weeks (not sure why - because it's gray, maybe? or is normal for color to fade?). Because my hair is chemically relaxed, she uses a 10 volume color on it. She used a 20 volume a few times, and my hair looked awful during that time - very brittle and dry with lots of breakage. I had to grow that out. I like my current stylist very much, but she isn't knowledgeable about these types of chemical processes (there's not much call for it in a small town, I guess), so I am going to have to find a new one before I embark on the TR path. I have been considering going to the salon in Raleigh I found that seems to be the best option for TR in my area, but I wouldn't know how to evaluate his knowledge on color products and application. Can you tell me what I should look for when talking with him about this issue?
3) I do comb through my conditioner with a wide tooth comb, as well as the products I use before drying it, so thank you for confirming that this is the right thing to do. Pretty much everything I do to my hair is the result of trial and error, because I haven't had access to professionals who really understand my hair issues. Another reason I want to get TR is to reduce the mechanical damage you described (as well as the amount of time I have to spend managing my hair). But I'm not sure how I could get by without using these appliances before I get TR.
I recently tried a Redken product (Outshine polishing milk), and I liked the result. I will look for the other products you mentioned. One thing I didn't mention in my original post is that I have an allergy to aspirin that means I have to avoid products containing salicylic acid, an ingredient that seems to appear in an awful lot of shampoos. So, I have to evaluate all new products for that. Fortunately, that ingredient is mainly contained in shampoos, not conditioners, so I can often use all of the products in a line and just substitute a different shampoo.
Thank you again for your help! I can't tell you how grateful I am to get input from people who understand these things.
