My hair was very long and red naturally. The hairdresser made a mistake the 1st time in the highlights, the colour came out multiple, pink, orange, white.. I can feel the hair is damaged.
He dyed the colour dark brown again, cut the damaged hair which is more than half the length, and did more highlights followed by a keratine treatment. The colour is not what I wanted at all. How soon can I dye my hair and do highlights again? The hair is already tired I don't want more damage
Thanks for answering - your answer appears below

I personally wouldn't perform the service as the integrity of the hair is important to me. If you pleaded I'd make you sign a waiver stating that you understand that any further color on your hair can cause breakage and the results can't be guaranteed. I'd try to convince you to go to a semi permanent color which is less damaging, and won't make it lighter but a different tone or darker. Deep conditioning treatments generally last a week of washing, and are no permanent fix- just a bandage. The keratin is filling the porous parts of your hair to prevent breakage, and as you wash it you wash the keratin out. I would buy Joico's K-pak which is a keratin treatment (human hair keratin protein is the best- silk protein and other's molecular weight are too heavy to actually penetrate as deep into the cuticle) and treat yourself once a week. Paying a stylist to do this once a week is kind of a waste of money when you can buy the same product for use at home. Really, unless you just want a semi-permanent color or a gloss you should wait until the damaged hair has grown out or all been cut off.

I would surgest you don't use any more chemicals on your hair for a good couple of monts.
You need a good treatment conditioner from a professional stockest and use it as often as you can and eave it on as long as you can.
Avoid heat styling if you can and if you can't then use heat protection and use a hairdryer straighteners that you can adjust the heat and have them on the lowest setting to avoid heat dammage.
It sounds like you had previously coloured your hair and the hairdresser forgot to ask if you had or you didn't mention it when asked ?
I hope you got the keratin treatment and colour for free ?
