Hair Dye Left Highlights a Grey Color

I had blonde highlights and I dyed my hair dark brown from a box hair dye, but I noticed the day after that where my highlights were blonde it has a dark grey color, how can I fix that? Do I just re-dye it with another brown dye?

You could put a semi-permanent color over it. It won't do any harm.

Here are a few things to consider

  • All hair stylists recommend waiting 4 to 6 weeks before dying your hair again. Otherwise, this can damage your hair.
  • Did you use a permanent or semi permanent dye in your hair.?
  • If you just want to cover up the gray highlights there is no need to dye all your hair again.

  • Buy a permanent hair dye that is the same color as your hair now and a highlight brush.
  • Only dye the gray highlights in your hair.
  • You will need to leave the dye in your hair a bit longer.
  • One reason this turned gray is because when your hair was highlighted it is the same as stripping the color out of your hair to give you these highlights.

I had that happen before with high lights it looked grey.I covered it over with a dark colour the next day.Just deep condition your hair once a week so it does not dry out.
