But only asking was not enough for me. When I found that some colours might suit my hair I tried them on few strands of my hair. After this I got my hair coloured with the help of the hair expert. I also took hair expert’s views on colouring my hair. The hair expert suggested the same hair colour which I liked and experimented on my hair. The whole experience of colouring my hair was really good.

Comments:   I love to colour my hair with garneir hair colour. This hair colour is really good for funky hair colouring. It really suits my hair and I like to colour my hair with it. I did not have a second thought in my mind before colouring my hair with it. It is exceptionally good. Just had to test it on my skin before applying it on my hair. It is one of the best hair colours to use it on our hair. I think it is the choice of lots of males and females all over the world. Colouring hair is something which should be done with care. Using unbranded products can cause harm to the health of the hair.

Comments:   the cuticle of gray hair is up to 30 times tchekir then naturally colored hair, making it coarser, wirey, glassy and really stubborn. These hairs are really stubborn to color too. to soften these unruly hairs you can pick up a box of perm solution for your hair type, squirt it all over the graying areas, process for about 15 minutes then rinse and neutralize. no need for rods or manipulting it in any way, you just want the solution to break down your hair a bit, not to restructure it in a new formation. just leave it down and damp and with the solution in it, you could comb it with a WIDE tooth comb if you want it stratighter. not more then 15 minutes, or the solution will really change the structure of your hair. the perm should eat through those stubborn cuticles and soften the hair making it more manageable. so freshly shampooed hair, no conditioner. comb out any knots apply the solution and let it do its thing *comb if you want to straighten* 15 minutes maximum then rinse for a few minutes, apply neutralizer, but take that out a minute or so early and rinse well again. dry and style your hair really well and keep it dry for 48 hours and it CANNOT be in a pony tail. youll have permanent ponytail hair if you put it up in that first 48 hours. it should be more workable. it should last you about a year or so.
