This powerful 'before' and 'after' is by Amber Dawn (@amberscissors), a Schwarzkopf Professional Ambassador and "Los Angeles-based world traveler."

"After a bad experience, she was referred to me," Dawn shares on Instagram. "Her hair had been greatly over-processed. We used all Schwarzkopf Igora Color Gloss to fill and Igora Vibrance and q10Treatment, alternating to create depth and dimension. And, of course, Hairdreams hair extensions for long locks. Seeing her so happy and feeling beautiful is why I do what I do."
