Reader Question: How do I fix my fried hair?

Hello, Jamie!

I’m emailing you now because I’m in a (literal) hair CRISIS and after reading your blog I feel like you could provide some insight and advice on what I should do. 

To make long story short, I wanted to dye my hair blonde and, as you would assume any smart hair stylist would do, we would approach this gradually and proceed with highlights. NOPE. She smacked the bleach onto my hair and now my hair is butchered. Ruined. I went from having medium length hair to now having short, uneven and over-processed hair. And when I say uneven, one side of my hair is 3 to 4 inches shorter than the other. When I left the salon I had not seen the damage and she told me I would need to deep condition my hair once a week but within a few days half of my hair had fallen out. So, essentially, she FRIED my hair off! I’ve attached images of my hair so you can see. 

So, my only question is: What do I do? 

I’m in a situation where if I cut off all the “damage” I’ll be left with barely any hair, and if I don’t do anything I’ll be suffering for months with drastically uneven hair. Currently, I’m lathering my hair in conditioning treatments and I’m alternating shampoos with Kerastase and Bumble and Bumble Thickening. 

Thanks so much, and I hope to hear from you soon.​



Reader Question: How do I get perfect eyebrows?


Hey Jamie,

So I’ve been penciling in my eyebrows since I was a teenager and, quite frankly, I just don’t want to do it anymore.  The thing is- when I don’t pencil them in, you can’t see them and I look crazy. I’ve been reading about more permanent eyebrow treatments lately and I’d love to know your take.
