I have a wierd issue that I can’t find an answer to. My newly grown out hair, about an inch from the scalp, won’t pick up the dye/bleach. It’s always the same place throughout my whole hair and the next time I dye it it’s no issue with that part of the hair, and the new hair an inch from the scalp does the same thing as the previous. Every single time. This time the newly bleach part barely picked up anything even though it was light blonde.
I used pravana vivids this time and have done it a few times before. It’e the same thing with manic panic.
Does anyone have any clue about what’s going on?
What is the color of the natural hair that is grown out by the scalp? Some colors will not show well on hair depending on the color of the hair. A light pink or purple will not be visible very well at all on medium brown hair for example.
The hair that is very light or indicated recently bleached maybe the platelets are very open. Open platelets that are blasted open will not accept color, which is like hanging a coat up without a hook. Suggest try to besides rinse out the bleach lightly wash the hair which will help remove any bleach left behind after rinsing. suggest use cold or very cold water. Cold water will help to close the platelets on the hair shaft.
Genetics, the way we are put together, may also contribute to a resistance to dye or bleaching. Some products may actually work better than another product. We are all different. Myself rarely have the roots accept color as well as the ends. Sometimes my roots will hold onto color very well and the ends shed color faster than the wind.
We all have different experiences with dye and the hair we have. Thanks for sharing.
These are my suggestions.
This is a pretty common issue, but unfortunately, there's not a great solution that I know of except to use a slightly stronger dye and possible dilute with shampoo instead of conditioner, if you're doing that. I think the newly grown hair just has a slightly different texture that doesn't absorb dye well, but it loosens up as it grows down the shaft.
This has happened to me before. I'm not sure whether it's some bleach residue or my hair reacting to the bleach, but I've found that if I wait a few days (washing as normal) and reapply the colour it usually takes.
