So you are wanting to do a big colour over-hall, totally new look? Here are some things you will need to consider 1. How much colour is already in your hair.
2. Your budget, total colour over-halls can be expensive!
3. These things considered, how realistic is it for my hair to look like this over one visit from the hairdresser? While we hairdressers would love to work that miracle for you it can be A LOT more complicated than you think and can take a lot more time than one

Shampoo: Less is more! An amount the size of a 20c piece is more than enough, use common sense if your hair is short or really fine use
Having the correct Shampoo & Conditioner is super important, it's kind of like the primer. Without it, even if you have a great styling product, you will find it much harder to get your hair the way you want it.
