    When does hair color fade and to what color?

    I got highlights and lowlights and the lowlights are really too dark. When will they fade and what will they fade to? Because under them, there was a brassy brown....will it fade to that or just lighter than what it is?

    And what can I use to fade them lighter without making the highlights darker?

    Well I have blonde hair, and I got redish - brown lowlights in my hair, and they faded after about a month, pretty much just blended back in with my blonde hair. But then again, I have been told that for some reason my hair just doesn't hold color like most people's, so that is just my experience. Going by that, I would have to say your lowlights may just slowly start to turn into the color you had underneath - but then again, everyone's different! Use salon-quality shampoos/conditioners and styling products for color treated hair and use a UVA protectant spray on your hair to further protect the color from fading.

    I like Nice and Easy. I try to make the tube of conditoner last. I mix it with another good conditioner and try to use it every other day. It seems to last the longest of any other brand I have tried.

    i have had this same problem. my hair is naturally a very light golden blonde, but for a long time i've wanted darker hair. last xmas, my sister-in-law (a hairstylist) put medium golden brown lowlights all throughout my hair. it was quite the contrast, and i was thrilled! unfortunatley, two weeks later, the lowlights were gone. the year before that, she colored my hair a real dark blonde and added some medium brown lowlights, but that too disappeared within a month.

    this fall she wants to experiment with some real dark brown lowlights in my hair, to see if they'll stay a bit longer this time.

    Rinse your hair in vinegar after you shampoo and then rinse that out with very cold water. This will make your color shiny and last forever. I do this and people compliment my color all the time.

    Vinegar fades hair color.

    Are you asking or stating that vinegar fades hair color? It has worked wonders for me? Of course my stylist does a great job to begin with. An added bonus is that vinegar gets all the residue left from styling products out of your hair. I rinse my hair with it about twice a week and my hair color looks great.
