Thanks so much for the advice!

My next question...if I do decide I want purple streaks (or maybe blue), is it necessary to bleach my hair first? For some reason, dying isn't so scary to me as the bleaching.

I think I would like to have darker hair, probably black with a few splashes of color.

You don't HAVE to bleach your hair, but the color will be much less intense if you don't. Given the dark color you have now, purple or blue would probably be quite subtle if you don't. Not that that's a bad thing--I had a friend with black hair that used blue dye on it without bleaching and it looked black inside but had a pretty bluish highlight when the sun hit it. If you do decide to bleach it, you only need to lighten the hair enough that the dye will show up--you don't need to get the "pale lemon yellow" as if you were bleaching it all blonde. So less time=less damage.

I've been meaning to ask a question, but never got around to it. Okay, so before I learned about teasing your hair. Well, I tried teasing my hair today, and it didn't do anything. What do I think I could be doing wrong. Huh

WIPs... you may need to use a bunch of hairspray in order to make it stay.  And, try taking bigger sections of hair at once to backcomb.  Don't be afraid to get your hair tangled, as that's the point of teasing it.

take about 1/2inch sections and hold them straight up and slightly forward, and just backcomb like crazy. (well, depending on how high you want your hair to be) and then hairspray just enough so it'll stay. repeat until you've done all the sections you want teased, then take a brush and GENTLY smooth out the front part so it doesn't look ratty in the front

the easiest way for me is to go to craftster.org/pictures and upload it there, then click on the picture, and there is a tag that starts with [img]  you copy and paste into a reply. and voila. hope that helps.

Okaay. Lately my hair has had that feeling you get when you haven't completely washed out the shampoo in your hair but it's dry.. you know what I mean? but there is no shampoo or conditioner left. Nothing. I've used lots of different shampoos, stayed with just one for a while, and also just recently used the shampoo that takes built up shampoo off your hair. I've used conditioner, not used conditioner. All the combinations you can think of. I have no idea why my hair feels so icky, it's very annoying!! Does anyone know what I can do to make it not feel this way anymore, or why it feels this way? I dye my hair, if that matters, but it's never felt like this before for so long.

Thanks in advance!

This is going to sound odd, but I have rinsed my hair with either vinegar or beer and it's removed that sticky build up sort of feeling. I've also heard that a vinegar/olive oil mix is good. Avocado and honey is awesome to condition. Just mash it up and spread it on your hair, let is sit for 10 or so mins and rinse.

Maybe some of that will help.
