I am naturally dark brown in hair colour but have been using permanent hair colour for several years to disguise the grey. I have decided though enough is enough and that I should embrace my natural hair colour; whatever it is!
I went to my hairdresser to get a cut and colour. I said I wanted to go from a chocolate brown to a shade or two lighter because I felt chocolate was too dark for me. My hairdresser interpreted this as a full head of blonde foils, which I hate!
I went to my salon with blonde hair wanting to go grey. Well my hair turned blue and I had a lot of blonde left. They redid it the next day and I have no blonde left but it's still a really ugly blue
I need help big time! My hair used to be halfway down my back and dark in colour. I wanted a change so I had copper colours put throughout. A while after I was advised that blonde streaks would look nice, I went ahead but they turned out green!
I am in my thirties and have been having my mousy brown hair highlighted since I was a late teen. When I was younger I was very blonde, but became darker as I aged. Due to my very pale skin, I only seem to suit blonde hair, despite trying on occasions to be dark
I have, and I accept stupidly, used several box hair colours, probably five in the last 14 days, to colour my hair. I first coloured it to a mousey brown, followed by slightly copper roots, and then a few days later some highlights that left more orange roots, so I immediately attempted a blonde all over
I have short fine hair and have had it bleached a couple of times, which gave it loads of body. When I was having the bleach done, I encouraged my hairdresser to put heat on it because it takes quicker, but now my hair has broken and split all over!
I have naturally 'dishwater' blonde hair and I always have a half head of highlights in a nice light ash blonde. However, about a month ago, I went to have the same thing done but the top part came out with a yellowy orange tinge to it
I recently went to my hairstylist to get my hair coloured and/or highlighted. I brought a picture of this rose gold colour and asked her to get my hair as close to that colour as possible
Basically I'm a natural blonde but I used to bleach my hair to make it more blonde. I stopped bleaching it and changed to a normal blonde hair dye, but now when I just touch up my roots they go ginger and it's different to the rest of my hair
I started dying my hair brown after a really bad break up about four and a half years ago. My natural hair colour is a gorgeous red, which I now want to get back!
I’ve had grey hair since I was a teenager, but over the past six years it has got progressively worse (the majority of it is all at my roots and fringe area). It’s got to the point that I’m dying my roots every two weeks because it’s so noticeable and it’s driving me mad!
I had a horrible experience where I went to get my hair dyed darker but asked that they don't go too dark and to try and avoid any rich chocolaty/reddish tones, I just wanted a natural ash colour. Of course I ended up with exactly what I didn't want, near black hair with a lovely reddish patch at the top
I now want my hair lightened again to a nice medium brown. My colourist keeps putting streaks throughout and lightening the roots. I now have dark reddish streaks, reddish roots and dark brown hair!
I am a natural ashy blonde with darker blonde hair underneath, but very light on top. I was having a semi-permanent strawberry blonde colour on my hair every few months, but made the decision to go for a more intense permanent ginger colour, a la ‘Christina Hendricks’
My problem is that my hairdresser, and previous ones, does not get what I mean by clean blonde, as in no gold whatsoever!!
I currently have very light blonde hair and it's been like this for years, so naturally I'm bored of it and quite fancy the dip-dye look
I dye my hair regularly to cover the greys (I’m naturally brown), but how do I counteract the green colour creeping into my hair, and why is this happening?
My natural hair colour is black. I went to a salon to get highlights, which she initially dyed a brown/orange colour - I was very unhappy with this. She went over it with some platinum highlights. It looked amazing except my roots were orange; I'm assuming it is because of the dye she used
Previously I had to take medication for a month and since then the back of my hair grows out near to black, but the rest is the same as normal and the hairdresser cannot lift it
I recently lost a bet to my dad in which he made me dye my hair blonde. We used some sort of peroxide that you can buy from a store, and I'm nearly positive we did not dye the roots!
I went to a new hairstylist yesterday and asked for a dip-dye effect on my blonde shoulder length hair. I had previously had highlights (a combination of bleach and some more golden tones mixed together) but it was a while ago, so my own colour (dark ash) had already come through in the roots
I have used henna for thirty years on my hair and I love it. My problem is I bought a pack of henna sachets from the internet, which were supposed to be chestnut in color, but turned out black!
When I have my hair coloured at the salon I experience a severe reaction. Yet when I dye it myself at home the reaction is not so severe - just a bit of itching!
I have dark brown hair and have previously had my hair bleached. I have about 6cm of regrowth and I have tried covering this with permanent brown colours over the blonde, but it just fades back to blonde
I have a terrible problem with dying my hair blonde! In my younger years I was naturally a very light blonde, but my hair gradually turned into a dirty blonde or light brown colour
I am 80 years old and have coloured my hair Honey Red (strawberry blonde) for years. Now, when I dye it the same colour it does not hold any red and within a few days it is just blonde
I recently had a bad reaction to a full head of highlights with foils and a whole head of colour for the first time in 20 years and have been told I should no longer colour my hair
My hair is naturally ginger and for the past three years I have dyed it black with shop bought hair dye. Now I hate the colour and would like to go lighter!
I've recently come out of training and I have this client who has permanent black hair on the ends, semi-permanent black in the mid-lengths and grey regrowth
I bleached my hair at home and it has gone bright yellow at the top of my head and yellow/orange on the lengths
I had a full head of highlights done recently (about 80%) that are very uneven - white at the root and a mix of yellow and orange on the length. I also left the salon with about half an inch of the regrowth
I have been using a semi-permanent colour on my hair for a few years now, thinking it would fade quicker. But I have a dark brown build-up at the bottom and a lighter hair colour at the top
I have recently done a full head of bleach on a lady (her base colour is around a five), as she has previously had highlights but decided a full head would be better for her regrowth and her purse strings
I've recently started dying my hair from a mousey blonde to a dark brown shade. Over the past little while, whenever I dye my hair, the roots and the very top of my hair all turns ginger
I recently had full foil highlights put on my dark brown hair, they came out a caramel colour but I really wanted to be more blonde. Should I have them done again and how soon?
I have dark brown hair and I had my hairdresser put a bunch of blonde highlights in so it looks blonde, and she also did something called "breaking the base" where it lightens the little bit of brown I have so that there isn't so much contrast
The problem I am having is that every colour that is applied (I always go to a reputable hairdresser) goes red, copper or ginger, and I'm at a loss as to what to do about it
I have very dark brown (almost black) hair, with an olive/sallow complexion and I am 32. I have been getting greys since I was 16 (hereditary), and my problem is that I have many greys at the moment and have very thick hair and lots of it, which grows extremely quickly
I have very short very dark hair, and about a year ago I started having it bleached (virtually milky white) which I love! However, the last couple of times my head has swollen post bleach (for several days) and it has really been an uncomfortable process
I have mid-brown hair with natural red and blonde tones. I recently dyed it Ombre on the ends using powder bleach and 12% peroxide, but it has gone an orange/red tinge
I have a bit of hairdressing experience so am dying a friend's hair in a few days. Her hair is a lovely copper colour, a little darker than a 7.43, her base is about a 6 and her roots are showing
My hair is naturally dark brown and just below shoulder length, and I have been dying it probably for about 15 years to cover the grey. I'm only really grey around the front, but it's slowing starting to spread
I have very dark brown hair and recently had bleached red highlights applied, which I wanted. I also wanted the rest of my hair to turn a different colour, specifically RV4
Two months ago I had a full head of foils done. The colour was blonde and it has now faded to a honey/caramel colour.
At the beginning of last year I had fiery red hair but decided I wanted to be blonde, so I stripped it myself which turned my hair pink. I then went to a salon where they put a full head of foils throughout several times
Hi John! I have naturally very dark brown hair, almost black. I have noticed recently a few greys appearing at the front of my hair which I colour with a semi-permanent colour as I'm a bit dubious about using a permanent
A client recently came to me to go from brown to a fiery copper look. We achieved the look by cleansing her hair and applying a fiery copper colour which looked fab!
I am a natural blonde but dyed my hair dark brown. After a year of being brown I had enough and wanted to be blonde again. I took the salons advice and had highlights which faded very quickly and cost me a fortune
I recently went to a hair salon to have a consultation about letting my grey hair grow in naturally. I had red coloured hair when my grey and dark brown started growing at the roots
I recently had my very thick and dark hair (base colour 5) bleached using foils. It took over an hour to do. I was then put under the climazon for 20 minutes and where my hair is so thick the underneath took very quickly so resulted in my hair going white and breaking off
I have naturally ginger/copper hair and want to lighten it slightly. I did buy Lee Stafford's Hair Lightening Spray, but after doing more research I am afraid if I use it my hair will become more orange instead of blonde.
I am 58 years old with dyed red hair and am now thinking of going grey naturally. I have medium tone skin and dark brown eyes. Will this be an easy transition?
I have naturally very dark, dark hair, almost a natural black on the pigment scale. I love my natural hair colour but unfortunately I have an unreal amount of grey for only being 25 and it stands out like a sore thumb, even when my hair is pulled back.
I am 25 years old and have been highlighting my hair with occasional full head dyes for the past ten years. I have now reached the point of going all natural with no permanent colour
I badly need your help! Throughout the past few years I have had bleach blonde hair but not to the point of platinum blonde. My natural colour is sandy blonde with a gold reflect
I have long, very dark brown hair and about 10% grey. I usually have the grey blended to my natural shade with permanent colour
I recently had a toner put over my hair colour and foiled highlights because I wanted to tone down the blonde slightly. However, they are toned down TOO MUCH!
My hair is a natural medium brown in colour (with a few noticeable greys) which I have been dyeing various shades of red/burgundy for about 18 months
I currently have a very visible amount of re-growth on my naturally red hair which is currently dyed dark brown
I have been having a full head of highlights on my hair for about a year and a half. Before this I had been using a permanent brown box dye on my hair for years, but this had built up and it took me ages to correct the colour and go blonde
For years I have been having blonde highlights in my naturally fair-brown hair. My highlights are a combination of lowlights, highlights and bleach. Recently my hair has been rather yellow in colour after a visit to another salon as they used too much bleach
I recently wanted to change my hair from black which I was dying for some time. I tried having it stripped twice but it didn't do anything apart from make it look brassy
I had professional highlights done four weeks ago to obtain a lighter caramel effect and to disguise a heavy greying hairline, and to generally lighten my hair to soften my features
I am 52 and have been highlighting my hair blonde for the past ten plus years. I am about to get a shorter cut as it has become thin and miserable and also too blonde
When I was younger my hair was naturally dark brown but I have been permanently colouring it for about 15 years, I am currently 63 years old
About three months ago I had my hair coloured at a local salon. I have been going to them on and off for a year, so the girl that did my hair already had records of my colour.
I wondered if you could advise me on something. Whenever I use any hair colour I get an allergic reaction every time and my skin, face and eyes swell.
I went to have a few blonde highlights put in to start the process of going lighter but the first set went orange - like the fruit, and I'm not kidding!
I recently spoke to a hairdresser that is near me and the lady said that my old hairdresser had no knowledge of hair as no one uses bleach for highlights and the roots will just have to stay and to not even think about dyeing it again!
My sister has had highlights for years but is now undergoing chemotherapy so she can't have chemicals on her hair
It’s been about two months and my colour is starting to lift. I’m left with a very brassy orange tone in places!
I have a grey birth mark on my head which I have been dying since I was 18 using Just For Men. I’m now 40 and have more grey hairs that I want to hide
I have just had my roots retouched as I have a lot of grey, but when the hairdresser rinsed it off a lot of my hair fell out mostly on the crown and on the sides
I have just returned from the hairdressers after having a full head of blonde highlights and I still have at least a cm of growth showing - more in some places.
I have long dark hair but I am completely grey around my temples/face, hairline and on top - about 30%. Normally I colour it dark brown but I feel I would like to go older
My hair is grey from the roots (about an inch) and I have had my hair coloured now for around 20 years
Naturally I have dark golden blonde hair and have been highlighting it for a couple of years. About two years ago I died it red with Schwarzkopf and after about six weeks I went over with Schwarzkopf Iced Blonde
I am currently ultra light blonde and I had my hair bleached for the first time four months ago
I have dark brown hair and have half a head of blonde highlights every eight weeks. My hairdresser, who is mobile, suggested I have my usual half head of highlights along with an all over brown tint as this would look less harsh
I had my hair bleached three months ago at my salon in which I experienced bad breakage and damage. How long should I leave it before I dye it again?
I had my hair bleach shampooed in order to achieve red hair. I am naturally a level 2, maybe 3, brown so I was told it was necessary
I really need your advice. I have naturally very dark hair which I started to get greys in my early 20s, so I have been using shop bought hair dye to hide the greys for 15 years. I have only ever used the darkest brown hair dye as it is the closest to my natural colour.
For a long time now I have had my hair coloured blonde but I am never happy with the result. My hair is naturally light brown and I was getting it coloured with Wella Colour Touch 7.7 with blonde highlights. The colour was lovely at first but on the third time of colouring the semi-permanent colour was giving of orange tones in the sunlight.
My usual salon coloured my grey roots orangey instead of brown, so I went to a Good Salon Guide salon and explained what happened but after paying almost £80.00 I still ended up with brassy roots
My daughter had her hair dip-dyed today at a hair salon; she had it dip-dyed about four months previously and had a little bit of the blonde bleach remaining in her hair
My hair colour is a natural mousey brown but for years I have dyed it dark brown, although the end of last year I thought it would be a good idea to dip-dye my hair
I'm looking for a low maintenance way to dye my greys but with a product that isn't going to effect when I go and get highlights. My hairdresser asks me if my hair is untreated
I have naturally light brown hair which I have been colouring blonde for as long as I can remember, always in a salon. The past four or five times I have visited the salon I have left with a ginger tinge to my hair.
This is really a skin and hair problem. I had bleach highlights done two weeks ago, I now realise it was a silly thing to do as although the bleach doesn't touch the scalp I have extremely sensitive skin and have suffered from eczema for 30 years.
My hair is dyed dark brown with blonde highlights, however I find that my roots always need touching up. My hair is very grey, well whiter really on my roots and hairline so I was wondering what the best way forward is?
Having had dyed black hair for many years I made the age related decision to have it lightened to something a little more natural and closer to my natural colour (mid/dark brown).
When I was younger I had light brown hair but as I got older I wanted it dark so have been dying my hair dark for about five years.
I currently have long light blonde hair that gets dry very easily, it has been home dyed the last couple of times and the top two inches of my hair is a darker blonde than the ends.
I have naturally very dark brown hair, pale skin and blue eyes. My hair is just starting to go grey and I want to have it dyed but I do not know what colour would suit me.
I’m 21 years old and have been dying my hair since I was young but all of a sudden whilst I was dying it the other day I felt really light headed like I was going to pass out.
I have fine mid-length naturally light brown hair with golden tones that come up quite light in the sun. I've been getting my hair professionally highlighted for years but the ends of it are really brassy.
My hair is naturally dark blonde but I want to go white blonde like Gwen Stefani, however when I went to a hair salon they didn't have the right colour so I just chose one I thought would be similar...my mistake!
I have had my hair coloured dark brown since my 20s and last year noticed that the hairs around my face are breaking off where my grey roots stop.
I had my hair a lovely light blonde colour (in a bob) and decided to go red. The blonde part of my part didn't take to the colour very well whereas the root was very red. This looked a bit dreadful so I had a semi-permanent brown put over it.
