    Default Hair dye help. I keep needing to re dye

    Please someone help me.
    I habe dyed my hair blonde and I didnt like it. That was anoit 4 full heads of foils done over months. Then I box dyed my hair red but that faded within 2 weeks

    I went to hairhouse warehouse and they gave me perminant hair dye. Iput in a few days ago and just washed my hair as normal today and its already faded on the lighter parts so looks horrible!

    So I want to put anothrr box dye in. Will my hair fall out?? I have been doing hait treatments heaps since starting all this so my hair doesnt feel too bad..

    Use a semi permanent colour not a permanent as your hair cuticle has been opened up to release colour. A semi will do less damage and actually holds better then a permanent colour. I would also get a good quality mask for your hair and do it about once a week.

    If it's red you're using, red fades really quickly anyway. For those sorts of unnatural colours to stay in, you need to hardly wash your hair... but they will fade every time you wash your hair.

    I'd go to the hairdresser, tell them what you want to achieve and get them to do it for you.

    For red you might need a specific shampoo/conditioner for red hair, my sister dyes her hair red and uses the john Frieda shampoo and her colour holds pretty well.

    You need red shampoo which I'm surprised they didn't tell you at Hairhouse Warehouse considering they sell it.
    I have bright blood red hair and I use De Lorenzo Nova Fusion red shampoo from HW which really helps to keep the colour longer with minimal fade. Also, only wash your hair when you have to. I wash twice a week.

    I beg to differ on the reds, everyone has different hair.

    I put a box bright red through my mouse brown hair and 9 months later I had to have it professionally stripped as cover ups still showed the red through but I had a line of regrowth visible even with new colours.

    Even after stripping you can still see red undertones!

    Hi Kim, I've currently got much the same issue as u atm I normally have really dark brown hair & about the last 6 months of last year I had coloured it blonde for a change. Trying to get my hair back to darker colour has been hard.

    Whenever I colour my hair, it gets lighter & lighter as I wash it & yes, I've been using a brunette shampoo.

    The advice I've been given is to put a semi permanent colour through (something about it should hold the colour much better) and do a back to back colour for best results. My hair had become fairly dry so I've been putting treatments through too which had helped hugely

    There is a great new product by revlon (I think) and it's a hair stain rather than box colour. It's great for in between colour, plus it won't ruin your bathroom. I hAve an all white bathroom and I used the dark brown. I got it all over my shower and it just rinsed off.

    I'm sure your hairdresser would have it.
