Just posted new thread asking for recommendations for home hair dye!
I find that the greys coming through so quickly is the most depressing thing. Sounds like your hair just grows incredibly quickly. Perhaps try a touch up in between? I think you can get kits now with wands in them as applicators so you can specifically colour the roots.
If money was no object, I would get in dyed professionally every three weeks as it fades sooooo fast. As it is, I touch up in between with Nice n'easy root touch up kit by Clairol (2 for £7 in Boots recently). Works really well. I'm seriously thinking of trying whole head colour myself next time as I seem to have found the perfect shade (dark blonde). Hair lovely and shiny with it, too.
My hairdresser has been giving me highlights and lowlights and blends it so well I can go up to 10 weeks without a salon visit.
It is still quite light but when it was lighter I had to go ever six weeks. After having a chat saying I haven't got the time or the inclination to go to a salon that often this was the perfect solution for me.
I used to have highlights 5 times a year as my grey hair came through after a few weeks. I have now reduced it to 3 times a year and touch up roots with Superdrug's Effects, this product is great for tinting grey hair if you use every wash and leave on for a few minutes.
