    Tip:

    If your colorist asks you if your hair is virgin, that means you have no artificial color in your hair at all. Having artificial color that is the same as your natural hair color in your hair no longer makes your hair virgin. Some people make the mistake of assuming their hair is virgin just because they “colored” it back to their natural color. This could cause the colorist to formulate and plan wrong, ending in a serious color disaster.
