@dannielle89:  I just grinned and beared it. (I dyed my hair one shade lighter than my natural color.) I noticed that it looked worse when I had day after hair, so I would make washing your hair everyday a priority. I’m sure I will regret posting this photo but I will anyways. Also headbands helped a lot for a couple months.

@asscherlover I totally know what you mean about second day hair and roots, but OP I would not recommend washing daily. If your hair is already fried and damaged, overwashing will only zap it of moisture.

There was a similar thread recently with a stylist who recommended how to help get hair healthy again. I’ll see if I can find it when I’m not using my phone. I would recommend joico kpak reconstructor (protein) as well as a very moisturizing deep conditioner. But you don’t want too much protein, or else it will have the opposite effect. I would suggest deep conditioning twice a week and protein once. Different days.

As far as the color, I would talk to a stylist about possibly doing a semi permanent color close to your natural color. Good luck!

@BlondeMissMolly:  Thats probably true. I only dyed it once, so it wasn’t very damaged (I think I had a few more split ends, but who knows if that was they dye or not).

that would probably be my thread. Free beauty advice from professional.  Id suggest you get highlights closer to your natural shade to blend as you grow your hair out.

@mrsroup yes I think it was!

@asscherlover yeah when my highlights are fresh I go up to 3 days without washing because my hair is pretty dry but when they are grown out I have to wash daily pretty much. So I def know what you mean!

@BlondeMissMolly:  I think its because oily hair looks darker. So it just made my dark roots look way more obvious.

If the ends are breaking off, I suggest just getting them trimmed.

Once they are at that stage, there is no product that can repair hair that damaged.

I am huge fan of low-lights, especially when growing out your hair. This will allow for the hair to grow while looking “done” rather than inches of dark hair with blonde tips. For maintenance all you have to do is have the low-lights added as the hair grows and it isn’t nearly as expensive as coloring your entire head of hair (typically pay per foil?).

The great thing about low-lights (opposite of highlights =much healthier and less dramatic/more depth) is that once you have grown out all the blonde you can stop with the low lights if you choose and let them grow out naturally. They won’t be super dramatic or look as strange as full color growing out.

Oh and to maintain your hair’s health pick up a K-Pak therapy  treatment pack and leave it on for at least 30 mins wrapped in a shower cap (even better if you can put a towel over that as well) to keep the hair warm. Do this every couple of weeks until your hair stops the severe breakage.

Best of luck!

I did this and it took 2 years to grow out. It got tempting to recolour it when I saw how dull looking my hair was, it was just because I was so used to seeing the fake bright shiney colour. If your hair is breaking it sounds like it needs a break from colouring and heat damage. Start off with a cut or trim and buy a heat protector spray for when you dry your hair. Only heat tsyle your hair when you HAVE too, like for a wedding not everyday. You should start to see an improvement in a few months.

I did it 7 years ago and it took about 2.5 years to grow out to the point where I felt comfortable cutting out the dyed parts (about shoulder length). My best suggestion is dye it to the point where it is as close to your roots as possible, and keep your hair up a lot! I used a ton of ponytails, head bands, hair clips, braids and buns to keep it from being really obvious. Bad news is that for the first 2-3 months, it will be impossible to hide because it will look like roots.

No one else has terribly unflattering pictures to post?

@asscherlover:  As you already have blonde highlights, a semipermant lowlight in a shade like your natural color will no require any lifting (bleaching/ammonia etc) to deposit color. If the idea is an absoloute no, try a shampoo/conditioner with a color enhancer to blend it better. As a stylist, I could never just let it grow out. I have however lowlighted my bleach blonde hair to almot match my natural shade to make the transition easier.

@Mrsroup:  Its actually all grown out now. That picture is from like a year ago. I wish I had known that when I was growing it out though. I’m not planning on dying it again for a long time, but I’ll keep that in mind if I do.
