    Hi Girls,

    I am interested in getting hair highlights, I have recently colored my hair with a light brown and ended up with a brown color on the top of the head and black on the rest of the hair as my hair was colored black earlier.
    I don't want to get a global color done in a salon as it will cost me a bomb. Will the highlights come out well if I color my hair evenly at home and get the highlights done in a saloon? Or will it be better to get a global hair color and highlights both in saloon.

    I'd say go to the salon. Unless you are very patient and know the correct technique, you might end up with uneven coloring. In my experience, they start by lightening sections of the hair (covering with foil), then filling in the global hair color. Not seen it done the other way. I had my hair highlighted and roots done last week. Adding the highlights, waiting, coloring the roots, waiting, and finally toning the hair to the right shade -- took over three hours. Not something I would attempt at home. The results were excellent. I highly recommend seeing a professional hair artist.

    My mom uses Volume Hair Plus for grey hairs and root touch-up. She uses it every now and then when she spots some hairs that she doesn't like. It also adds some volume and looks quite natural.

    Chemical based hair colours definitely lead to hair loss and in many cases permanent damage to hair is done. Godrej Expert hair colour that has aloe vera milk proteins and no ammonia. Its contents only colours hair without any damage. The after effect is only soft silky hair with beautiful colour. You must immediately stop chemical based colours and try natural and no ammonia hair colour shades in India.

    Personally, I love Henna!
    Apart from deep natural shades, it helps to make hair strong, voluminous and healthy, nourishing roots and building protective layers for strands through the whole length. You can find tips on dying your hair with Henna here - DIY Natural Hair Dying Using Henna . Hope it works fine for you!

    You must try Godrej Expert powder hair color dye that takes only 10 mins to color the hair. It stays upto 20-28 days, depending on the frequency of your hair wash and hair growth. As it has no ammonia it does not damage your hair and protects them from falling.
    You should also start consuming walnuts, fish oil capsules and green leafy vegetables that support hair growth.

    I had tried black hair dye at the time of my marriage so that the color of the hair runs with the color of the wig. But my hair started greying all the more after that. So I personally would not recommend any black hair dyes.
