Question about Hair Dyes... PLEASE HELP!
Fri, 11-09-2012 - 10:41am

This is my first time posting here, but I have a question I really need an answer to...

About a month ago I decided to dye my hair after having Highlights for over a year. My hair after all the highlighting was basically blonde. I used Revlon Colorsilk (47) and I LOVE the color, but now my color is fading and i swear where it was mostly blonde is now a light light brown compared to the dark it orginally was after dying it.  My question is can I dye it again even though its only a little over a month? and is Revlon the best box dye to use.. I know ive been told a million times to go get it dyed but I dont have the money for it. My hairs long and thick so it cost extra... Pleaseeeee help!

When I dyed my hair, I liked Clairol Perfect 10 the best, it doesn't fade hardly at all I've used it quite a bit and so does my mom and its the best next to going to the salon. Since its been a month and not a few days, go ahead and color it again, and then just don't use a lot of heat styling to or or just use products that help protect your hair when you do use like the flat iron, curling iron, and hairdryer. I hope that helps you.

I agree. When I box color I usually do it every 6 weeks. Also, make sure you're using a permanent and not semi-permanent. I'd also switch to color protective shampoo and conditioner. That will help keep it as well.
