Just to set my mind at ease about what a couple people in my life are concerned over, I have a question. How visible are most of everyone's roots in unprocessed hair compared to a platinum blonde lift?
I ask this because I'm being told my hair is thinning, but beyond my hair feeling light and airy from the full processing, I never noticed excessive falling out over the passed few months. I don't sweep or vacuum up more hair than normal. I haven't noticed any chemical burn behavior. And honestly, when my unprocessed hair has dealt with a dry scalp, I notice the sebum overproduction causes the same areas on my head to have a more visible, thus make that area look 'balding.' And my natural hair, when well oiled, causes a ponytail to make my hair look extremely flat. (Like anyone's I suppose).
While I feel that my hair is as it should be, and I feel that the concerned parties are seeing things because they're not really a fan of my current "hair crazy' moments, lol. But I like to keep a balanced mind, so I want to know if any of you notice a change in your scalp visibility. The only difference I've seen is the obvious difference in overall body. At worst, maybe I just need a bit of Olaplex to play it safe with my actual hair strands?
My only real regret is not using Colour B4 on my green, because I think it turned Blue Mayhem into diluted Navy Blue.
I don't notice my scalp being any more visible when my hair is coloured. It can look a bit pink if I have freshly done roots and it's toned white. I do notice a reduction in individual hair thickness, as in, it's less lustrous and if I pull my hair into a ponytail, the girth of the ponytail is a bit less when it's bleached than when it's natural.
People have given up telling me stuff about my hair, but I have had people comment that I'll make it fall out from dyeing it so much which is clearly not true.
Your hair doesn't look thin to me. Has it changed much since you started dyeing? You'll know if it's breakage if you find your regrowth has a lot of short "baby hairs" and short of chemical burns, dyeing won't cause it to fall out. If it was thinning, it would most likely be a hormonal or dietary issue.

I've noticed the hair thickness goes down a tad, and feels wispy, but in my opinion and because I've paid freakishly close attention to my hair over the years, I don't notice anything different with my scalp's visibility. I've always had a very strong part when I part my hair in any direction. Since my hair's in a long bob, there's not a big change in my ponytail girth since it still looks more like a sparrow's tail, lol. My theory is that they just notice my scalp more because the color's lighter than Level 2.
But I've never had any extra breakage, so the general shedding follows that of healthy hair. I've always had a natural "halo" so there's really nothing out of the ordinary. I've noticed that this reflects kind of gold-black given the green undertones from the previous dye color, because the green has toned a lot of my strands to a navy blue, though there's an interesting blue-purple highlight at the right angle. But trying to explain color theory to those who don't understand it. I just have to smile and shrug, I suppose.
Maybe you should try and explain it in very simple terms. ie "You can see through light hair more than dark hair"
