Why is my hair not holding color?
Your hair is not holding your color, this happens because the dye becomes darker on the some parts of your hair and lighter on the other parts. Even after trying all branded colours and dyes repeated number of times, the hair doesn’t hold colour for too long. The hair retains its original colour too soon.
Does hair dye stick better to wet or dry hair?
You’ll want to stick with dyeing your strands while they’re dry. Coloring your hair while it’s wet is best for subtle results and looks that are less likely to cause damage.
Does heat help hair dye?
Heat opens up the cuticle, much in the same way ammonia does chemically. This is why some hair dyes will suggest covering your head or applying heat while the color sets. The extra heat, whether from your own head or an external source like a blow dryer or steamer, optimizes the dye’s processing for stronger results.
Why is my hair dye fading so fast?
The more you wash your hair, the faster your color will fade. Shampooing causes the hair strands to swell, and the color then washes out little by little. And, unless it’s the day before a color refresh, don’t use clarifying shampoo, which can strip strands and speed up the color fade process.
How do you fix porous hair that won’t hold color?

Is it better to dye your hair dirty or clean?
Hair color takes best to clean, freshly washed hair. Only when using chemically harsh dyes, proceeding with dirty hair may be recommended so that your hair’s oils can protect the hair and scalp from lasting damage. For best results, we recommend a more natural color on squeaky clean hair.
Can I put hair dye on damp hair?
You can dye your hair while it’s wet, but the color might be less vibrant, it might not last as long, and it might be a little more uneven than it would be if you colored it while it was dry.
Can I put permanent dye on wet hair?
Yes, as a matter of fact, you can dye your hair while it’s wet. There are plenty of instances, even in the salon, when wet hair application is completely normalized, but often overlooked. Simply put, our hair color is applied on wet hair more than we may even realize.
Should I wrap my hair after dying?
After you’ve applied the color, cover your hair with plastic wrap, Gloria Swanson-style (a shower cap works well, too). Not only does this help the color penetrate better, but it prevents goop from streaking your forehead—and the bathroom sink.
Does cold air affect hair dye?
For example, cold and dry air can actually cause the cuticle of the hair strand to lift ever so slightly. The dryness and breakage that comes along with winter weather also isn’t doing your hair color any favors either, especially if you have color-treated hair.
Can you color over hair?
Hair dyes pretty much work in the same way. You cannot just easily color over a previous color without having problems occur. However, it’s much easier to color from a lighter color to a darker one. Also, if you want to go lighter, one would definitely recommend the hair color remover.
Should I dye roots or ends first?
If you’re dyeing your whole head, and it doesn’t already contain any colourant, dye the mid-length and ends of your hair first – hair at the roots will take colour much quicker, so leaving that until last will give your final style a more even colour. Do not bring the colourant too close to your scalp.
Why did my hair dye only dyed my roots?
Frequently referred to by pros as “hot roots,” an orangey tint near the scalp is usually the result of using a dye that is too warm or too red for your natural hair color. Why this mismatch only shows up at the roots is because your virgin roots are less resistant to the dye than your previously-colored lengths.
