I need advice- as an adult, my hair has always been a dirty blond, which I would highlight. In 2019, I was dx’d w breast ca. I underwent chemo and surgery/radiation. Of course I lost my hair. I was praying it would come in gray (59 yo at the time), but nope- it came in dark brown.
Question- I’d like to lighten it, but I’m not sure I want it blonde again. Any suggestions?

Firstly- glad to hear you made it through all of that! 💪 I’m sure your natural hair is beautiful! I have dark dirty blonde hair- it’s brown on the bottom and lighter on the top where sun hits it. I sometimes do nothing to it but lately I’ve been getting a few subtle highlights which brighten it up- esp around my face, and fives my hair some dimensions. I go back every 8 weeks but she weaves the colors so well I really don’t have to- it grows back in looking like I just went to the beach and it grew out. But I would honestly look for a hairdresser you trust, and look through some pictures of their work for inspo.

If your hair is thin but you’d like to add color without damaging it too much from dying / bleaching it, consider adding in tape in extensions in another color to give a highlight effect and more fullness!

Great idea. My hairdresser left the state maybe 6 months ago. I do have to find another one but my hair is super thin. I agree, I need dimension as it makes my hair look thicker. Thank you for your feedback! Have a great day!

My mom’s hair thinned due to a different health reason and she had to wear wigs for about a year. I am not sure what her hairdresser did but it gradually became somewhat healthier and she can hide the balding spots much better. She used some kind of fiber building hair spray for awhile. She rarely uses a wig now and uses Not Your Mothers texture spray some days to make it seem fuller.

Interesting. Thank you..,I’ll look into this!

Does anyone have itchy ears and have you found a solution? I’ve seen multiple ENTs and have tried ointments. I’ve seen a dermatologist and my primary. Nobody has been able to identify the problem. The inside of my ear itches as if someone were swiveling a feather in there slowly to torture me. Sometimes the skin flakes and peels out but usually it’s just dry and itchy and no skin ointment has helped.
