Hair dye gone wrong

I went to Sally's today to pick up my usual hair color (I'm graying at temples) & I let the sales lady convince me to try the new "one n only Argan oil hair color" she said it was better for my hair and would make it soft and shiny.

I hadn't dyed my hair in about 4 months so all my grey was showing and I had about 1-1 1/2 inches of growth. I followed the instructions exactly. 1 part color to 2 parts developer. Leave on roots for 45 minutes for grey coverage and pull to ends for 5 minutes to refresh the color on the ends.

My roots are now about 2-3 shades lighter than my ends! I need HELP. Does anyone have any advice on how I can correct this?

oh and by the way...my ends feel dry now. I even used their shampoo and conditioner, (even though they contain sulfates and silicones and I'm CG) I figured I'd use the full system right after coloring for best results and then do a baking soda/ Acv a couple of days later and be back to business as usual. But my hair feels fried.

After a year of being CG I was just starting to like my hair again and now I feel like I'm back to square one. I'm so frustrated.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    How frustrating!!!

    I would use a non damaging temporary color to darken the roots until you need to retouch the new growth.

    I've been recommending Goldwell's Softcolor, which is an amazing product.

    Hi Dear! :) It would be best if you use a bit of argan oil on your hair after a shower and it'll make it really soft and shiny, helps a lot with frizz too. I use the argan oil from the Pro Natural's brand, if you want a good quality one. Don't get cheapo argan oil, those aren't the real deal.

    That was an old post... she may not even be around anymore, so this seems like spam...:rolleyes:
