Iíve been dyeing my very dark brown hair black with box dye for approx 14 years - I have very pale skin and going darker makes my face glow and look healthier. In the last 6 years, however, my hair is going salt and pepper grey with re-growth visibly popping up every 2 weeks after I dye my hair. So, I end up waiting an extra two weeks before dyeing my hair again and Iím wondering if itís time to change my hair colour or incorporate a few dark grey streaks into my hair to stop it from washing out my face and making me look older. Iím also concerned that dyeing my hair black so often might be bad for my hair, but I really donít want to look so washed out and old! Any advice or suggestions please? Kind regards , Nik

There is a lot of history as you have been colouring your hair with box colour for some time. Box colour is very un-predictable . Therefore there is not one golden rule or answer to your desired result. In order to remove and or change your current black colour the hairdresser would have to use a bleach. As bleach is the only product to lift the black from you hair. A stand test would be a good idea to see how it lifts. To create a softer re- growth area adding different shades ( slightly lighter/and slightly darker combination) to your hair will soften the re-growth line and would help to blend your salt and pepper. Avoid a solid blanket of dark hair.
I think you need to change your thought process and colour plan based on how often you wish to colour your hair. If you want your colour to look more natural, multidimensional, great for blend grey hair this will help with a softer re-growth area, re-growth line. I would only recommend that you consult with a colour specialist. As they will know what to use and the path to create your final desired look. Keep in mind there is a lot of colour history that only a professional colourist can suggest ideas, etc. Keep in mind that as we mature, skin colour, grey hair Ė etc. formulations should change according to the natural hair and end desired result.

Hi, I wear LíOreal Paris Magic Retouch to cover up my roots. Can I leave it in my hair when I visit the hairdresser for a colour appointment or do I have to wash it off first?
|Answered By: |
While itís unlikely that this kind of temporary root colour will affect the results of a colour appointment, it is far better to visit your colourist without root touch up in your hair, simply because it will give your colourist a much better view of where they need to apply your colour. This is particularly true if it is your first visit to a particular colourist, as they will need to get a thorough look at your natural hair colour and type, and this may be masked by root touch up products.
I would advise washing your hair to get rid of any trace of temporary colour, such as root touch up, however I would advise washing your hair a couple of days prior to visiting your colourist, rather than the same day. Itís not advisable to wash it the same day as your colour appointment, as colour treatments can cause irritation to scalps that are stripped dry or that have small scratches as a result of being freshly washed. Itís better to let your scalpís natural oils come through Ė which will happen a couple of days post-washing Ė in order to protect your scalp and hair.
|Salman asks: |
Hi my name is Salman and I am an 18 year old Indian guy. Actually Iíve never grown my hair out completely because I felt like it looked somewhat like an Afro. I was just wondering if I can still grow some silky long hair? And if so what products can I use and how do I make my hair look silky and flexible as my hair currently is very thick and prickly like? Please recommend some products and directions to growing out long hair. Thank you so much

Hi Salman, Firstly you must use moisturising shampoo and conditioner, make sure you leave the conditioner on for a few minutes and comb through before rinsing. This will help soften your hair and make it look shiny. I would also suggest perhaps having your hair relaxed as this will make it look longer and feel softer immediately. Good luck
