My hair appt was November 15th, and my roots are already showing. I didn't get a cut last visit, simply changed the color, so my bangs are in dire need of a trim. I asked the stylist to do fewer foils, but make them thicker. I prefer chunkier strips with the purple.

Still no flash, but in the shade. You can see the purple clearly but it's not as obvious as in the light.
The purple has faded a little due to a recent clarifying shampoo, and it's been 4 weeks since the appt. I've had good luck with Pravana in the past, both the Chromasilk and Chromasilk Vivids. The new stylist used an NN super dark brown shade with a glossy demi perm on the ends, but I'll switch to regular old black on the next recolor.
My shortest layer is just below my chin, if I pull it straight, so I need to let that grow a few more inches so the weight will pull it down and not out. Almost there lengthwise, just a little more time.
Thanks for looking!
