I'm not positive, but I think he still uses Goldwell, but I may be wrong. I know he adds a few drops of something to help color gray and that he uses "very good quality" peroxide. My hair is finally very healthy, but it took a long time to get that way.
Like I say, Amanda, you'll get there, honest! Hang in there. Mine all broke off, and the roots were damaged as well. (Vincent certainly knows this because I posted it all over his board.) It took a while before it began to grow in normally again, but it finally did.
Anyway, some people like Schwartzkopf, (sp?) and a few other brands, but I think that Goldwell is supposed to be one of the lowest in ammonia. Don't let anyone put permanent color on your ends, though, ever. I think a lot of stylists do this, but it really is hard on TR'd hair.
I do understand completely what you're going through. It's like you can't stop searching for something to fix it and trying to figure out what went wrong. Nothing fixed it for me. Time did heal it though. What went wrong? I think, really, it was either bad product or operator error. C'est ca. Buy products that make your hair soft and shiny. It's the best you can hope for right now.
