To transition from dyed brown hair to grey, I got highlights which are lighter and yellower than my natural regrowth. The contrast between my skin and the highlights is lower than I think my natural grey will be (my natural colour is about 3 inches currently so the light yellow is dominant at the sides of my face/neck).
I don’t want to do any further colour blending with peroxide-based colour given how yellow it goes. Would it be better to wait & get colour analysis when my natural colour is more established or would you be able to see past the distraction of the lighter (? warmer) ends?
That's a good question and one that many women face. A hair colorant can certainly persuade you into the wrong colors.
As long as a color consultant can see your natural hair color at the roots there is no reason why a Color Analysis shouldn't be accurate.
Can I see past a hair colorant? Yes usually as that's the way I work. Please Contact me if I can be of help.
But the first thing I would suggest is that you apply a wash-in/wash-out toner which will help to neutralise the 'yellow', blend the colors together and make you feel more comfortable. A very good and inexpensive product is Color Vibes from Amazon.
kind regards Pamela
