Jan,
Thank you for your reply and advice. Yes, my stylist used something to the lift the pigment first. The problem is, and I have had this happen before, is that unless a stylist does bring the hair to be highlighted past the red stage to the pale blond stage, my highlights will always be red. To compansate for red, a dark ash toner with a green base has to be used and then my hair absorbs so much color that I end up with black hair again. Its a vicious cycle, and I learned this the hard way by a previous highlight attempt several years ago. Then I found a colorist who understood my hair type and skintone, and brought the highlights past the red stage. Once we accomplished this the red was gone. He used a level 5 neutral brown, with a ash, that had violate base, instead of green base for my roots, and the toner was the ash with that violet base. The result was very pretty. Medium brown hair with shades of light brown and a sunkissing of blond. It was very pretty and natural. For some reason many people think that olive skinned toned women, with dark hair look good in red overtunes. This is not always true, and the red overtunes many times will not compliment a darker skintone, where the cooler brown shades with a little blond will brighten the skin, as long as the highlighting is very fine and not done in streaks. Trying to find a colorist who is experienced to do this without the severe damage you talked about is difficult. Its harder to correct the red, after the first attempt at highlighting is not brought down to pale blonde at first, then there is major damage because of the overprocessing by doing having it done twice. I wish I could go back to my former colorist, however I moved, and a plane trip to have my hair colored is a detriment to my pocket book. :-)
