Is it true that color does not fade on natural African American hair?

I recently dyed my 4c hair for the first time.  It is a deep reddish brown color.  My cousin told me that it would never fade and that I would either have to grow it out or do a color wash or something like that.  I want my hair to eventually be two toned. Half reddish brown and half of my natural dark brown color.

No all color except bleach (turns brassy) will fade but the rate at which is fades depends on the type dye (i.e. permeant, demi, semi, rinse), hair porosity, and frequency of washings
