Hair dye gone wrong

I went to Sally's today to pick up my usual hair color (I'm graying at temples) & I let the sales lady convince me to try the new "one n only Argan oil hair color" she said it was better for my hair and would make it soft and shiny.

I hadn't dyed my hair in about 4 months so all my grey was showing and I had about 1-1 1/2 inches of growth. I followed the instructions exactly. 1 part color to 2 parts developer. Leave on roots for 45 minutes for grey coverage and pull to ends for 5 minutes to refresh the color on the ends.

My roots are now about 2-3 shades lighter than my ends! I need HELP. Does anyone have any advice on how I can correct this?

oh and by the way...my ends feel dry now. I even used their shampoo and conditioner, (even though they contain sulfates and silicones and I'm CG) I figured I'd use the full system right after coloring for best results and then do a baking soda/ Acv a couple of days later and be back to business as usual. But my hair feels fried.

After a year of being CG I was just starting to like my hair again and now I feel like I'm back to square one. I'm so frustrated.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

How frustrating!!!

I would use a non damaging temporary color to darken the roots until you need to retouch the new growth.

I've been recommending Goldwell's Softcolor, which is an amazing product.
Goldwell Colorance Soft Color Foam Colorant Mousse

Hi Dear! It would be best if you use a bit of argan oil on your hair after a shower and it'll make it really soft and shiny, helps a lot with frizz too. I use the argan oil from the Pro Natural's brand, if you want a good quality one. Don't get cheapo argan oil, those aren't the real deal.
