The stuff to take dye out of your hair.

Does it really dry your hair out.

And if I hate it can I reduce it straight away ?

Have dyed my hair dark for a long time ( slightly about three shades darker than natural)

But I am really grey ( I think now, regrowth certainly been almost white for a long time)

But the ends of my hair are a lot darker than the roots. The dye Seems to fade to what I remember isy natural colour at the roots.

I really would like to see just how grey it is ( if it's all grey woukd leave it, if patchy redye it)

But it's quite dry and don't want to ruin it as it's now bra length and has taken me two years to gor it from a number 6 crop.

Do you mean the colourb4 stuff you can buy in Boots? I dyed my hair bright red for years and ended up using this. It was great and stripped 90% of the red out (I was left with light coppery hair) and then I used a semi-permanent light brown straight away which did take slightly darker, which was expected, and had a very slight hint of red to it when the light caught it. My hair didn't dry out at all and was in really good condition afterwards. Look at reviews on the Boots website as people have posted lots of good tips.

That's it! Thank you Felix, I may be brave enough to give it a try smile

Think it's about time to grow old disgracefully ( I have bought a purple coat after all)
