I have been dyeing my hair black since August. First I used semi-permanent and that faded so I dyed again with the semi permanent. Then I splurged and got the permanent stuff since I liked the way the black looked. But the permanent seemed to wash out just as fast as the semi-permanent stuff did!  I can't tell you the exact stuff I used but it was "Wella" brand if anyone recognises that

sk8grr, how often (no. of times) have you dyed your hair since august?  Theres only so much that your hair can take! I dyed my hair 6 times in 4 or 5 months a few years back (all permanent or semi's, all different colours) and after a while my hair just wouldn't take any more colour, it did what yours is doing and it just washes out!
Give your hair a break for a while, maybe just put rinses through it for a bit until your hair has a chance to recover.

well, I dyed it once, and it faded in about two weeks. then I bought the permanent and it faded within one week :/ idk, I really want to have black hair :/

hi all. my hair's kinda straight at the crown and gets curly at the ends. it was all one length but i got it cut in layers about 2 weeks back. so it's longer at the back (mid back length?). it's black. i'm thinking of trying out schwarzkopf igora royal rhapsody. well maybe a subdued version of it with highlights of reds and violets. but apparently all my hair has to be coloured brown first according to the colorist i met.

this is the first time i'll be getting highlights done (if i'm brave enough to do so and depending on your advice so i thought i'd get it done by someone else)
but what's making me hesitate is that i feel that highlights seem to look much better on straight hair- i'm worried the colours won't look as good  on my head.
and i'm not sure if brown will suit my skin colour.

well, thanks in advance for any help!

Personally I think highlights look absolutely amazing on the kind of hair texture you have. I'm wondering why your stylist wants to color it brown? That sounds unnecessary.

Actually she might be trying to sucker money out of you. :\ Sounds kind of bad but it happens. Upselling is pretty common. The problem with her coloring your entire head is that you'll end up with dark roots, and you'll have to go back every few months for a retouch, as opposed to typical 3 x's a year highlights. Reds/violets on a black base look amazing.

how strange...my hairdresser told me to die my hair back to the natural colour with a risnse before she put my highlights in *shrugs* the money mooching thing does happen, besides haveing to go back constantly for touch ups sucks

she rambles oddly

i have curly hair just like you...and i have always had some sort of highlight in my hair [right now i have pink] and i think it looks better in my curly hair...enhances the curl. why would you need to color it brown though...its near impossible to get dye out of hair so it makes no sense that if you are going to lighten [highlight it] that you would put a barrier layer of color on it [the brown]. i always have an easier time when im dyeing over natural hair rather than dyed hair.

cheera and miss catbread: the only reason she gave for the brown is that she said it would show the highlights better! Weird isn't it? even i hadn't heard something like that before. From my point of view it would make sense if i was going for some really light colour highlights. but with red? violet?

and you have a point reenreen- i don't really like the idea of going back for touch ups! hmmm. I've seen brown dye (on some other heads!) fade to a horrible pale shade and i don't want that happening to me.

one of these days i'll go see if i can get those kind of colours from the beauty supply store.

thanks guys, appreciate it!

No sense in putting your hair through all that extra processing if it's not something you really want anyway.

Do more of what makes you happy.

I was wondering, (someone might have said this but i don't want to read allllll 54 pages  Grin) how damaging are weave in hair extensions to your hair, I really want one, and my sister had one, but everyone is saying they're really bad.
« Reply #528 on: October 31, 2007 06:23:20 PM »

theyre only damaging if the person who does it doesnt know what theyre doing... or if the braids are too tight. it might hurt if youre tender headed but it shouldnt hurt a day or two afterwards. theyre a LOT less damaging than any type of glue in extensions.

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.
