I have been having my hair coloured for a few years now. My hairdresser (who is very good) says I only need semi permanent colour, and that has been working fine 'til recently. I notice that my hair is a bit rough most of the time. I lather the conditioner on, but I don't feel it is ever very shiny like it used to be prior to beginning colouring. I do wash it every day which I know is inadvisable, but I have that kind of hair that just feels oily and uncomfortable first thing in the morning and so changing this is not an option. I notice my sister - who uses permanent colour - doesn't seem to have this problem. She has nice shiny hair always. Is is the semi permanent that is the culprit? I reason that the semi permanent nature of it might mean it doesn't close down the cuticles as well as the permanent colour does. Any advice?

When you say rough .. do you mean dry?
Question Author
Yeah I suppose so. It doesn't look smooth. When I run my hand down it, it feels coarse.
I recommended this on here .... You can get it from most places .. just put an amount in your hand and smooth on dry hair .. just soaks in & not oily when applied.

Thanks Quassia. Do you apply it when your hair is wet or dry?
Dry Rodge. I found mine at one of the cheap 'Quality buy' stores.
There are loads of other coconut oil serums out there too!
Sorry .. meant to say 'Quality Save' stores.

Thanks, I'll try it. Do you have to put it on every time you wash it or just now and again?
I put it on after I have coloured & dryed my hair & after I wash & dry it normally too! Just seals in some moisture!
Let me know what you think if you buy any coconut oil! :0)

Willdo :)
most permanent hair colours are what are called High Gloss colours - also when using a permanent colour you only '[email protected] the regrowth not the whole length of the hair. Repeated colouring of the whole hair shaft makes it pourace ( sorry spelling not my forte) which in turn will make it dull. However once you start to use a perm colour you are locked in forthe long hall - have been having my hair coloured for many many many years be warned. However you might be overdrying your hair on too high a heat this will take the shine away too. Try turning the drier down a notch as well as the serum.

Thanks nanny. My hairdresser does only the roots one time and then the next time she does the roots and then combs it through for the last 5 mins or so, and alternates like this. It is always very shiny when I've just had it done. But it doesn't last. I already have the hairdryer on the coolest setting :/ What do you mean when you say that once you start with the permanent hair colour you are locked in for the long haul?
well by nature of the product a perm hair colour doesnt fade and you will get a regrowth the only way to change the colour is to grow it out .As you go greyer you will notice the regrowth more - black rots on blonde hair not good white roots on black hair looks like you are bald or worse.
You cant justdcide to stop like you can with a semi colour and let it fade.

Do you have a conditioning treatment when you have a colour they do work and help the colour to stay fresher longer - even if you have oily roots there will be a treatment for you.

also any dry ends / leave in conditioner applied to lengths and ends will help your problem.
