In September 2007, my mom did a crap job highlighting my hair, turning it orange. Now, you see, my hair is naturally a dark, dark brown. So when the roots began to show. . . Well, it did not look good. In November 2007, my dad got some L’Oreal hair dye BROWN, so my hair could return to normal. I was all excited. . my hair was going to be brown again. . . except, the color of the dye was Auburn. Reddish-Brown. Ten shades too light. It looked fine, but once again, my roots started to work their magic. Here I am, July 2008, and the dye has still not completely faded! My hair is half-closed practically black, and auburn, and it looks pretty bad. I’m going into high school in the fall. I am not entering high school looking like this! I tried to dye it back (on June 26) with L’Oreal Superior Preference (Dark Ash Brown), and it faded within two weeks, and I used the conditioner correctly. What I’m asking is, why has not this dye faded? And what’s a good dye that WILL NOT FADE? Thanks!
