Hi Grey Hair
6 weeks is the average recommended time period to wait between haircoloring. When your natural hair color comes in grey and your applying black dye to the hair it's noticeable much sooner than if you were using a hair dye that is lighter. Coloring the new growth in 4 weeks should not be a problem unless the colorist is overlapping the color or running the color through to the ends every time. Especially the hair that has been straightened in the past. The ammonia in the hair dye is damaging the cuticle and the hair is absorbing more color making it darker.

Hairdye needs time to process. 15 minutes to open the cuticle 15 minutes for the pigment to process for a total of 30 minutes. Leaving it on the hair an extra 15 minutes allows for more deposit and after the 45 minutes the color stops processing. These are the guidelines that colorists follow. course, thick frizzy hair that's about 70% grey needs the extra time. Washing hair dye sooner than 30 minutes will make the color fade sooner.

I remember your post about moroccan oil a while back. You asked about adding it to the hair dye to make it more moisturizing and shiny. I've been trying it ever since but I need time to see the result when my clients come back for their retouch. I have doubts because morrocan oil contains silicones and silicones work as a solvent to haircolor which would make color fade faster. Thats why I hesitated to give you an answer on that issue. Then Mark Gailmor posted about the benefits of coconut oil which will moisturize your hair & scalp as well. Next recommendation is to brush brush brush your hair with a paddle brush when its dirty before you shampoo your hair. This will smooth the cuticle and impart shine. Brushing hair before you shampoo will bring your natural oils where its needed & your natural oils are better than anything you can buy off the shelf.
