White hair problems
« on: August 31, 2016, 10:33:50 am »
I just colored my hair a dark shade to cover the whites like a month ago and today i found some of the whites appearing at the roots again.
Started to wonder about the frequency of women coloring their hair to cover the white hairs.
How often do you color your hair for fashion and how often for the white hair problems?
I hate to pluck out the white hairs, for some reason the spot will end up with more whites.

When the contrast of dye color and white is high. It's very obvious when the white hair appears.
Different people, growth of white hair will varies. Hair stylist even mention if you shampoo your hair everyday, hair growth is even faster.

There is a saying, 1 white hair pulled out, more will grow.
From what I know from my females clients, average is about half a month to a month. They just patch up.

Once your hair has lost the black pigment, using dark shade will not last as long as before because there is no base color but white.

If I may advise, depending on your skin tone. Use another color which is not that dark. It will last longer and even if the white hair grows, it wont be that obvious.

sounds reasonable, but my skin is quite tanned and i don't have thick hair so when its a lighter shade, the scalp seems obvious.
Maybe i'll take your expert tip and ask the stylish for a lighter shade just to try.

No one having this problem huh.
i really dislike white hairs.

Just to share with you, my current white hair stands at 60%.
I used to dislike white hair and can't really gel the white hair image on me.
Till I did my own research and study more in depth.

Am having the same skin tone as you which is warm. Once tan, it hard to revert back.

Since my hair has more white hair now, my choice of colours change as well. This has to do with contrast. Color of hair versus your skin tone.

Mind if I ask do you use make up when you go out or for work? Its pretty important too.
Do note the advise given is for general only. If you want, I can advise you future in depth with a pic. No need actual face. Just skin and hair color will do.

I advise most of my client's girlfriend or wives when the guy tailor their outfits with me as I cover image consultation as well. :)

If one choses to embrace white hair, again depending on skin tone. Make up, colours on outfits will have to readjust a little. I believe clothes complement the wearer, so focus should be on the wearer more than the clothes. :)

Hair turning back to black, the food we eat plays a part as well. There is a chinese herbs which helps tune back the color back to black. But its quite a long duration to have that effect with herbs.

Hope am able to advise and help you along the way. :)

My profile pic, that a picture of me but face and hair crop off. Am keeping my white hair for time being.
Black hair is better than White hair, White hair is better than no hair. :)

I know liao.. you are evolving into a zebra!  ;D

But seriously hor, I heard consuming black sesame and black beans help.  I also heard that melanin is the thing that makes your hair black.  Here's an article on it.
