Best Hair Dye

I used to go to a salon to get my hair done...my hair is freaking LONG and it started to cost upwards of $200 every six weeks to have it done.

I just do one color...no highlights or anything (dark brown)...I have a very small amount grays. When I've used box dye in the past the color doesn't seem to hold well on the gray hair.

What do you use? And if you have the lovely issue of gray hair what color holds best?

I use gariner nutrisse or revlon color slik but were great. I have very thick long hair and I use about 2 boxes to cover my gray and there are not bad at all using either of these products gives me great coverage.

Anytime I skip the salon for box color, I use Revlon Colorsilk. I think it's around $5.

What kind of colour were you using? And how did you apply the colour?

I've tried the John Frieda Foam, I think it's called Revlon 10?, and Feria.

I always buy at least two boxes. Make sure I don't wash my hair that day and start applying and the roots/gray areas and work my way done.

When you are retouching because of grey roots, you might want to just work on the roots and leave that in for 3/4 of the allotted time and cover the rest of your hair the remaining time to freshen the color up on the hair shaft. It's what they do at my salon.

Feria is a permanent hair color, which is what you are looking for.

Thanks for the advice...I definitely appreciate it.

So permanent color is best?

You want a permanent colour to permanently cover your grey hair.

I get resistant grey and do my roots every two weeks. I use Loreal Excellence Creme from the beauty supply and 20 developer.
