Well you don't have my hair. (lucky you )woa! What brands were you using? And was it semi-permanent or permanent? I've had all the colors there are except gray and they never turned out bad.
That's why they have certain additives (color accelerators) that your stylist can buy. It helps penetrate stubborn gray and process any color hair faster.Well you don't have my hair. (lucky you )
Natural black that really wants to stay that way.
Total gray. . .almost white in the front. that needs more than over the counter color can give.
Staying Young is so right! I was told the exact same thing. If your going darker do it yourself. If your going ligher take it to a professional.My stylist has told be that it is ok to use a box to color your hair if you are going darker but never color your hair when you are going lighter. The reason for this is b/c when you darken your hair you are adding to it but when you lighten your hair you are stripping it. You can always add more but you can only strip your hair so much.
