Tink asked in Beauty & StyleHair · 6 years ago

can you please answer my hair coloring question?

nine months ago I bleached my hair and toned it, it was kinda brassy and I didn't care for the color so I have been biding my time till I can fix it.. I then used a boxed light blonde color from say beauty and it was orange on the roots that were grown out so I waited another three months. Now I want to color it all light golden brown. How long should I let it process? I don't want the ends over processed and I want the roots to match the ends. Should I apply to roots first or ends first?? Should I let roots process for awhile before applying to rest of hair?? Please don't tell me to go to a professional because I can't afford it and have had terrible results when I did go..

    Overlapping dye onto previously colored hair is what creates dullness and dryness. If you color your hair @ home or salon, let your roots grow out as long as you can stand, so the line of demarcation is easier to spot. Only run color through the lengths for five minutes to refresh the ends. To extend the time between touch-ups, use a gloss and deep -conditioning treatments. They will help smooth cuticles roughed up by daily wear & tear, and the hair will look shinier. ~ Harry Josh, hairstylist of the celebrities.

    Celebrity wears two-tone hair dye all the time, trying to grow out their dye. They call that the ombre style.

    Playing with chemicals is not like playing with clothes, or doing a manicure, there are penalties for playing chemicals in the lab. Even hair color experts at the salon are not rocket scientists, they do a bang up dye jobs to their clients or their own hair.

    London, Feb 20, 2013 I've been saying that since 2009.

    Hair dyes, which include home hair colouring kits and those used at pricey salons, are linked to deadly cancer-causing chemicals, warn scientists. In 2009 the Mail revealed that women who used hair dyes more than nine times a year had a 60% greater risk of contracting blood cancer.

    A year later the European Commission banned 36 hair dyes which put long-term users at risk of bladder cancer. < < < <


    Google: Teen 'feared she would die' after reaction to hair dye

    The allergic reaction was caused by a well-known brand of semi-permanent hair dye Chloe used to turn her hair black for a Hallowe’en party. . . . . called for beauty bosses to ban hair dye chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine) from the shelves. 11-04-11

    The chemical is not new and is present in a number of brands of dark hair colours, acting to help adhere the dye to the hair so that it doesn't wash out. It’s made from coal tar and is used in both permanent and semi-permanent hair colours. It’s well-known to be a cause of serious allergic reactions -- including something called contact dermatitis which can lead to rashes, blisters, and open sores.

    PPD is sometimes added to black henna tattoos and that using them is not safe. Allergic reactions usually begin within two to 10 days following application. One bad reaction can lead to sensitivities to other products such as hair dye, sunblock and some types of clothing dyes. Oftentimes, it's using the product a second or third time. Skin specialist Najjia Ashraf reveals that there are barely any dyes that don’t contain this toxin; even the ones who claim they don’t, are not being honest. “Big brands often escape the blame by suggesting they are ammonia-free. However, ammonia and PPD are two very different things and PPD is present in nearly every dye because it is what gives off the colour,” she explains.

    You probably didn't leave the color on the roots long enough. If the roots have grown out and there darker ur going to have to keep them on longer than you would the part of the hair that is already colored. You do have the process the roots longer because they are darker. So what you should do when coloring your hair is apply the roots first then after it processes for a little while apply to the rest of the hair and leave it on that part as long as needed to get the desired affect you are looking for.
