Back when I was first diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, I decided that I would colour my hair and have it cut regularly so that it had a style. I figured that as long as I had hair I wanted it to look nice.
Then a while ago I was getting rashes under my pain patches after I coloured my hair so I had to stop using the permanent colour. I've been using the semi-permanent colour on my hair for a while now but I've been re-thinking colouring my hair at all. I'm wary of introducing new chemicals to my skin because of the sarcoidosis. At least my roots are well over an inch long; even though they're a light colour, there's no sharp line of colour.
This kind of sucks because for the first time in ages, there are new semi-permanent colours out on the market. Yes! Finally! Both Garnier and L'Oreal Paris have introduced new semi-permanent formulas with different special features. Garnier HerbaShine has bamboo in the dye and the conditioner for L'Oreal Paris Heathy Look Creme Gloss Color has royal jelly in it. I wouldn't mind trying one of these formulations - I do like the Clairol's Natural Instincts that I've been using, but I wouldn't mind something a bit different, you know? If you try one of these new products, let me know what you think. I'll live vicariously through you :)
