Q: Is it true that my new salon-treated colour may not turn out “correct” if I’ve used a DIY home hair-colouring kit previously?
A: Yes, as DIY hair colour darkens the hair root growth colour, the colour outcome might not be what you’d expect. A good hairstylist can advise you.
Q: There’s an old wives’ tale that says your hair will turn white if you colour it too often.
A: There is no scientific basis for this. Colouring your hair will not turn your hair white – white hair is mostly due to genetic causes.
