    How to touch-up  grey hair by brown color without darkening the blond highlighted hair?

    My hair is 90% grey. I like to do blond highlight because is match on my skin tone a looks younger on me.

    I use brown color to cover my grey hair.

    My problem is when my grey hair grow and I need to touch-up my grey roots due to 90% grey hair.

    when my hairdresser  touch-up my hair roots,the dark color effected on  highlights hair and almost 50% of my highlights become brown color.

    Q: Is there a solution to apply (creme or something )on highlighted hair to prevent being colored by darker color?

    Please advice.
    Thank you.

    You need to change the order of the way you are /ur colorist is doing the coloring procedure-
    1. Do the roots of grey with the shade of brown
    2. using a hair weaving net highlight the blonde or bleach the brown and apply blonde

    Hi!  GREAT question!  This is a problem for MANY of my clients.  I do teach people how to color their own hair at home but either in the salon or at home - the color to cover the grey roots should be applied ONLY to the outgrowth, carefully staying away from the mid shaft and ends.  This way - y ou can hold on to your highlights longer and save money.

    You should really see a salon professional that is experienced with and carries Organic Color Systems so that you don't damage your hair with the ammonia or your health with the other dangerous chemicals.  I have a good hub with instructional videos on the Advanced Techniques video here http://hubpages.com/hub/Professional-Hair-Color
