    Default Peroxide in Shampoo

    O.k. I've been living with highlights/LOWlights that are just too drab and ash for my liking. My hair looks o.k. when straightened but when I wear it natural (curly frizz) it looks like shite. It's what I asked for (close to my natural color). Blah. My sister suggested peroxide in my shampoo?? TO lighten it some. I added it and will shampoo tomorrow. Any warnings?

    Don't! It will strip your cuticle and dry the hell out of it. Try John Frieda Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Shampoo instead (you can get it anywhere). I've used it before but here's the specs in case you're curious:

    Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Shampoo comes in two formulas:
    • With natural lemon peel chamomile and sunflower seed extracts for platinum to champagne blondes.
    • With natural caramel, honey and wheat germ extracts for honey to caramel blondes.
    Innovatively formulated to counteract blonde's tendency to dull and darken, sheer blonde Highlight Activating Shampoo rids hair of darkening and drabbing residues caused by water's mineral deposits, film-forming conditioners and styling products.

    Gentle enough for every day, sheer blonde Highlight Activating Shampoo helps to eliminate unwanted minerals found in tap or pool water that discolors blonde hair, turning it brassy, yellow or green.

    If you want to spend more money, ARTec and Aveda make great color enhancing shampoos.

    Thanks, missperfect!
    I used the peroxide shampoo this morning and it maybe slightly brightened it a little.
    I'll try your suggestion.
    I used to use a hair lightening mousse but they no longer sell it.
