Does permanent hair dye fade with shampooing?

I got highlights. Hated them. I put my natural color back over it with permanent hair dye from the drugstore not realizing it would wash everything out. The color is better than the highlight color but a little darker than my natural hair. Will it fade soften with ahmpooing? Hopefully.

  • Yeah, it will fade some...but if it's way too dark for you to deal with, you might wanna go a shade lighter.

  • Yes. Especially if you just use regular products and not anything fancy that's made for dyed hair.

  • It can...a volume shampoo could make it go a little faster...but do not expect over night results...even if you are washing it 2-3 times a day. Good Luck

  • yes, hair color fills the hair shaft so when you shampoo it eventually depletes the color from the shaft thus fading out the color
