Okay, so I loooove Jasmin & Henna Fluff Ease, and I have one unused and one 1/3 used tubs sitting in my fridge.
My one MAJOR issue with this product is that it contains SLS. I have dyed red hair, which as you may know, fades like nobody's business :/
I never had a problem when I dyed with Caca Rouge. In fact, I think the hair mask made it look even MORE vibrant (my boyfriend agreed). But then I made the mistake of dying over my Caca Rouge with Splat 'Luscious Raspberries' dye. It actually looked great, but unfortunately I couldn't keep it for very long, as it was a lotta too screaming bright, and well, that seems to be frowned upon by general society. Go figure.
So I tried to take the Splat dye out with two boxes of L'Oreal Color Remover. Didn't work too well (and destroyed my beloved long hair, so I had no choice but to chop like a foot+ of tangled mess off, myself!) But I thought I could still dye over what was left on my hair with Feria 'Copper Shimmer'. WHOA, was that unfortunate. Can we say frizzy orange clown hair..? Yeah... Ugh. So I went to a salon to have it fixed.
And THAT color came out spotty, awkward, and washed out immediately, even though I used a decent, low-PH color shampoo. So I went back to have the hair dresser fix it. And, uh, that didn't really work either. At all. So, embarrassingly, I have to call/go in again today to see if the salon owner can help me this time (Do salons fix color twice without issue?! This is so mortifying and disheartening!! I feel like they must think I'm some entitled malcontent. But I just can't bring myself to part with the $167 I paid, in a time where I'm REALLY not well off, financially, and just suck it up and try to fix what they told me they could fix, myself! And NO self-respecting salon would let a client walk around repping, looking like this, I promise you!)
I just had to get that off my chest. Thanks, if you read, or can give me any advice!
Here's my ACTUAL question for this community: Assuming my hair can finally be fixed, and I'll have lovely red hair once again (Think Florence Welch in her more copper-y days), should I just forgo the Jasmin & Henna Fluff Ease until around when I plan re-dying/touching up? I haven't used conventional red dye in about 12 years, but I know it's pretty "precious", and the Cosmetology dropout in me says "of COURSE you shouldn't use it!!" I just hate to think that the two jars I have already are just going to be sitting in my refrigerator, unused, for who knows how long.
I know that it contains a little bit of red henna, but SLS is the third ingredient.
This is probably common sense, lol. I don't think I'll chance it immediately, but for future reference, do any of you have any experience with using it on salon-dyed red hair?
Thanks! Sorry for the long, weird story :p
