y natural hair wonít take colour. Help!
When I was younger, I undertook a hairdressing apprenticeship, but after finishing I decided it wasnít for me. During this time and still until this day, I love experimenting and changing up the colour of my hair. However, there is a problem I face, my natural hair doesnít take to colour. ...More >
My natural colour is red (more of a strawberry blonde as Iíve gotten older). This can be a problem when I decide to colour my hair, which is quite regular. When I have regrowth come through, I canít just have the base colour put on my roots, I have to have them bleached, and then a base colour on the top (note: I have tried many professional salon colours, along with different peroxides and time lengths, none have worked). When salons, including the ones I worked for just put a base colour on, it would wash out after 2 washes (so it would last a week, maximum). But, when my hair is bleached, the colour holds perfectly, but Iím getting tired of bleaching my roots all the time as itís not healthy for my hair for a prolonged period of time. I also desire to achieve long hair, which when using bleach all the time I wonít be able to achieve.
Can anyone suggest a colour formula that may help? Or tell me why my hair wonít take to colour?
