I got my hair colored between dark brown and black with red streaks. even though I got some expenseive hair retention hair products, my hair is now fading. i have greys showing after only 2-3 months later, and my red is now orange.


arghhhh.

She told me its ok to dye hair when its damaged. I think shes wrong.

I think I might need to do some henna until my hair is less damaged.



and how do I know when my hair is good enough to get a chemical treatment?
Permanent red is notorious for fading, IME colour retention products are next to useless. Water is your enemy. By trial error I learned to:
- conditioner only wash
- use cool water only
- leave in instead of rinse out conditioner
- all acidic products
- dry shampoo to stretch washes.

For colour damaged or porous hair use proven ingredients such as coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides, 18-MEA and panthenol.

You can touch up the previously dyed hair with semi permanents without further damage. Henna is very permanent, you cannot bleach it out, only grow and cut. It's not something to use with the intention if dying over it later.
Zeldahime and HtBlack like this.

Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
okay, I am not sure what I want done right now cuz its pretty messed up. as much as I'd like red hair, I think I'll stick with blue black for now.

funny thing - the boxed stuff stays in my hair longer and better than the stuff at salons, especially the ends.

maybe next time i'll have the top dyed blue black and my ends dyes red
I find that a product by "Davines" does a good job of refreshing reds (conditioner and shampoo), but I can't promise it won't affect your browns ands blacks as well.

I henna my roots, and Firefox is correct in that it's permanent. You'll also get possibly weird effects given that it will affect your different colors in various ways.

Although you mention that boxed color stays in your hair longer, a professional colorist may be able to advise you on how best to get the new effect you're seeking. (I'm not a colorist.)

I don't know if this helps, but when I had my hair coloured bright blue, I usually mixed some of my semi-permanente hair dye to my conditioner to refresh the colour each wash. Think you can find some semi-permanent dye to do the same for yours, too? It wouldn't damage your hair further because it's deposit only.

Blue-black isn't a very simple colour, but maybe you can find something.
A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)
well my hair was dyed brownish black, not blue black and they didn't give me as much red high lights as i would have liked. yeah - now its orange. even though I did everything they said to do

so right now I'm looking for a home dye I can do myself at home, that won't be too too damaging
Red dye is like that. Unless you henna your hair, it's never permanent.

And well, go either for a semi permanent or demi at the most. I had great results with loreal casting creme gloss, if that helps. They used to have a blue black dye.

However doing roots a colour and tips another on your own sounds difficult and far from foolproof...

As HtBlack indicated get someone else to help you dye your hair if you are doing your roots.

As a kid I use to touch up my mum's roots.
okay thanx all. if i color myhair, its going to be red maybe,

just not sure what to get
Henna is so your best option. But once you do it it's permanent, you can't get it out, so you need to be sure.

However, henna is an amazing choice.

Depending on where you live there are tons of websites that sell it. Get some info around the interwebz first and then decide which brand and shade you want.
