I've had this done and of course your hair looks fantastic when the hairdresser does it. Before you leave that salon you ask her what is a good shampoo you can buy, good condition and a good mousse product. I use "IC Emotion .. Intercosmo ... Insolent Mousse." Comes in a lime green bottle. YOU must take care of your own hair when having your hair dyed until you see your hairdresser again.
