Hello bees, I am looking for some help with new (alternative) ideas that I can show my stylist as to what to do with a two-color hair (natural and dyed). I would appreciate if could include pictures (or hiperlinks) with your comments. In advance, thank you.
I am trying to grow my hair, and I have challenge myself to only trim it and avoid completely cutting it for the next four years. I already had it very short, and I loved it! So now I’m going the opposite, to see how I feel about it. I also decided to try and grow out my natural hair color, which I have been avoiding during the last five years. Unfortunately, this means that I now have two colors on my hair: dark brown (natural) and a brown-redish (dyed hair).
Last time I colored my hair was in June, for my wedding, and the color that was once a cholocate brown has now faded into a mixture of brown-ish, red-ish,and orange-ish. I do not like it. It doesn’t look nice, like some hairs do on the photos of magazines, it simply looks like there is a straight line between my natural and my colored hair. What is worst is that the weird faded color makes my hair look unhealthy and dry (as if it had been burned) which it isn’t. It is actually quite healthy, but the color makes it look otherwise.
So I made an appointment with a stylist that some friends recommended me. I told her, by phone, what my hair problem was and she suggested maybe painting the dyed hair with a color that matches my roots. She also said she had other ideas in mind, but she would have to see my hair first. I am thinking that since I am coloring my already colored hair maybe it was worth trying something different besides just matching my roots, so I am now searching for some “alternative” ideas and I would appreciatte it you could also help me. My dyed hair starts around my ears, and my hair is slightly below the shoulder lenght. Please, post your ideas below : D Thank you!
