Roots Won't Dye But Ends Willby BleuenNoirPosted 7 months, 1 week ago
This has been a major problem for me ever since I started bleaching and dying my hair. My roots won't barely take any color but my ends will look ~extremely~ vibrant and colorful. Starting from the beginning, last year I beached my hair (Roots to ends) myself for the first time I had barely any damage, just a bit of frizz, that's it. After I waited about a week, I dyed my hair and then encountered this problem. Here's where it gets weirder. Once my bleached hair roots started growing out, they became easier to dye and started taking color like it was supposed to. I did nothing different either. I just kept up the same old routine and kept dying it every 3 weeks. Unfortunately I ran into the same problem again when I had to bleach my grown out roots (I had a year of growth btw). I bleached it like I did last time and with barely any damage. However, my roots are still refusing to take any dye.
This is what I have done so far to try and fix it:
My current hair care (And have not changed since I first bleached my hair): - Sulfate, dye, silicone and paraben free shampoo and conditioner. - Only wash once a week - No leave in-conditioner or other products (My hair's natural oil seems to be enough) - Oil treatment once every two weeks
Things I have tried: - Different dyes - Oil treatments - Some clarifying treatment from Ion - Hair protein treatments and deep conditioning masks
Dyes I have tried: -Arctic Fox (Performed the worst on my hair) -One n' Only -Manic Panic (Second favorite) -Beyond the Zone Color Jamz -Wella Color Charm (My top favorite so far) -Ion Color Brillance
Just for reference: I have natural really dark brown hair, almost black and I have been dyeing it blue this entire time. Every time I have done something to my hair, I do the same thing to my roots as I do my ends. Even when I first bleached it and when I do my normal hair care. Have any of you experienced the same problem? Does anyone have any suggestions?

I will keep an eye on this post because also interested in trying to get an even staining on roots and ends. I have experienced the same problem and also similar. MY roots and ends are never the same after fading the color from the hair. Either the roots hold onto the color or the ends hold onto the color after the hair has faded. The fading is never even. Myself based on experience suggest simply due to age or genetics. Peoples hair changes thickness, density, and color with age. Some people turn gray in their 20s and some like my dear mom not until 50s. There may nor be a fix to this because could be genetic. Myself hope there is some way anyway to have an even fade of hair color.
These are my suggestions and opinion.

This is a relatively common problem, and I've never found a perfectly satisfactory solution to it. The things I've tried that helped somewhat are to use a clarifying shampoo and no conditioner on just the roots and then blow-dry them or to do a quick 10-15 minute soak in 10 vol peroxide and shampoo it off and blow dry. Using a stronger dye on just the roots also helps, but it's only significantly noticeable if you also do the prep steps as well.
