I use a permanent color to cover my grey at a salon. A few
months ago I went to a new colorist. I noticed that two days after
colouring my roots were grey! I switched colourists and now am on my third one. This is still happening. Each colourist says that this is "regrowth". Regrowth after one day? How can this be? Is there something lacking or not strong enough in the dye they are using? I would be so grateful for your opinion on this matter. It is driving me crazy! Thank you so much.

If you are using permanent hair colour there should be no reason why you are not getting the results and great grey coverage. I will advise you that it is harder to colour grey hair when it is course or lighter shades of blonde are desired, but other than that you should not have grey hair after one day. So letís try to figure out what could possibly be going on. Some facts: The average head of hair grows 1/2 inch per month, so yes if you are an high percentage of grey and are doing a really dark colour, in two weeks you will have a 1/4 -inch regrowth that will be visible. I am not sure if this is the case for you or if in fact you are just not getting good coverage to begin with. You said that your experience in the past was good, was that along time ago could your hair be a lot more grey now, have you changed the level of colour or shade that you used in the past, are you recently on medication or had surgery as all these things can effect colour. I hope this helps you work through this situation I wished I could help you more but it is difficult unless I can analyze the hair and do my own visible tests.

I have my hair coloured and it grows out grey from the roots. For the past couple of months it has been fading quickly and the colour comes of the grey roots almost instantly. I have a back problem and bone loss and have osteoporosis. I am on a lot of medication but have been for a number of years. The only new medication is the tablet once a week for osteoporosis. Is there anyway to preserve the colour?

Obviously you have had colour before that lasted and your are using the same product of color now, so it sounds like the medication is what is affecting your colour. If it is a dark permanent colour there is no reason for the color to fade off at all. You would or should just get a re-growth and usually a full head color needs a re-touch every 4 weeks as the hair grows approximately 1/2 -inch per month. Sometimes lighter blonde shades can fade off quicker due to the fact the dye load is not as heavy as the darker shades and of course if it is a demi-permanent that also will be a reason for the colour dark or light to fade. Unfortunately usually colour problems or unusual situations are due to something being on the hair, like a medication, or mineral from pipes etc. I would suggest that before you do your colour, to use a chelating shampoo to help take some of the medication away from your hair, apply the color to dry hair. After use a cuticle sealer and do not wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours immediately after the colour, these products mentioned can be found in the JOICO line, not sure this is the answer but it might help?

Years ago I used a dye called Wood Nymph it gave me a really light blond colour. Do you know of any dyes now which would give me this blonde without ginger tones?
|Answered By: |
Sorry I have never heard of this product but if you feel your hair pulls ginger itís because you need to use a lightener (bleach) instead of a colour to achieve a lighter blonde. Hair color will only lift so many levels and also when hair colour lifts out the natural colour it exposes warmth unless you can lift to a true level 9 or 10 lightest blonde then you would not pull ginger (copper) tones but achieve a pretty blonde. Unfortunately science has not made us a colour that can lift as many levels as a bleach product yet.
