View Full Version : Old Dyed hair

January 6th, 2011, 12:18 AM
Hello guys,
Im trying to have healthy and long hair. So I didnt dye my hair for 1,5 year (before I dyed 2 or 3 times a year), I cut my hair some inches to get rid of layers and get stronger ends some inches in September, October and November(my last cut), and than :cheer: I found lhc!!!!! So I dont use blowdryer anymore, only air dry, I put oils in my hair, I shampoo with no cons and sls, and never brush it when is wet :). The only problem is my old dyed hair that looks that I have 2 colours. My physical colour is dark brown. So I want to thank you first of all for this incredible forum and second any ideas for get my colour back without dye my hair?

Without dying the length to match, I just don't know. Maybe someone has a suggestion about a natural product. Lots of members here use henna, indigo and cassia but I am completely clueless about them. So, while I am no help, I still wanted to say good luck !

Henndigo, perhaps? If you have a trustworthy friend or a stylist who's willing to work w/ henna & indigo, you could put it just on the areas that are reddish. You'll probably have to do multiple stand tests to get a good color match to your virgin hair. And perhaps finish off with a cassia treatment a few days later to get even shine throughout your hair. I've never dealt with the two-tone issue before, so hopefully someone else will have more suggestions. There are teas you could use as rinses too, but they're extremely temporary.

wow your hair looks really pretty, shiny, healthy, and thick.

Because of that, I would just leave it alone. However, as someone who recently grew out YEARS of bleach and dye, I know how yucky it can feel to feel like your hair is ugly. So I will share what I did.

I started taking better care of my hair (less/no heat, regular deep treatments, gentler treatment) so that my virgin hair would look better.

Then I CUT (through many, many trims). I have probably cut off twice as much hair as I now have. And I am happy about that. Other people prefer to get as long as possible as fast as possible, but that was not my goal, so I went for healthy hair over length.

hth, and welcome here!

I'd leave it alone other than trimming. It looks good, and sun-bleaching can do that, so it also looks relatively natural.
