My natural colour is dark blonde/light brown, for the past 20 years I have been having it highlighted with bleach and a high-lift tint. I recently decided to go for a darker brown/mahogany red colour, which I got professionally done. When it was first done, I loved it, but over the past 5 weeks it has faded to a shade only a little darker than my natural colour. Instead of going back to my hairdresser and paying another £120, which I canít afford, I want to try an at home colour. Is this safe and also, how long do I have to wait before I can do this?

Yes you can do this at home with a box colour. However it is a jungle out there as to which one you choose. ...More >
It is very hard for me to say without seeing your hair, your best bet is to go back to your hairdresser and tell her it has faded and ask what you can do to prolong the life of your colour, as it could be as simple as the right shampoo and conditioner. I would recommend REDKEN Colour Extend for the next time you have it coloured.
You could also express that you expected it to last longer than 5 weeks your stylist will then explain what product she has used (permanent , semi permanent).
The danger with box colours is you never know how they are going to turn out they could be too red, to dark all sorts can go wrong with them and then you find that you are paying more money to get it right.

For a few months now, Iíve been growing out my natural silver/gray. I had always coloured for years. Anyway Iím in a pixie cut now with just a little over a inch of old colour. Can I actually go somewhere and have silver or darker colour put like hi or lo lights? I just hate the old colour which is a faded out brown. I hear some women talking about actually colouring their hair silver. Thanks for your time
|Answered By: |
You can go to a professional salon and have the hair highlighted or bleached and then toned all over to help get rid of the faded out brown and give you a more even silver tone all over. Itís also a great idea to keep the hair trimmed on a regular basis to get rid of the old colour even more quickly.
Hope that helps?

As I want to dye my hair an ashy (brown/blond) grey and want to keep it as long as it can without damaging it or altering the colour, I think about buying a colour depositing conditioner but have a bit of a dilemma in what colour should I choose to keep it the closest to the hair colour I want: if I take a grey or red neutralizing conditioner I fear to lose the ashy tone
(dirty tone from brown/blond-ish) and if I
go with a brown or beige depositing conditioner
I donít know if it would take the grey off the hair overtime, thanks for helping
|Answered By: |
Iím a little confused with the question, I assume you have coloured hair and you want to tone and blend the grey hair between colour, if thatís correct and the colour you want to achieve is an ash / cool tone then and ash brown / dark blonde conditioner may be the answer. It will neutralise the natural red undertone as well as deposit a temporary colour on the grey.
