Q:

What are lowlights for gray hair?

A:

Used to tone down or blend away gray hair, lowlights for gray hair are achieved by coloring select strands of gray hair. In most cases, stylists use a color that is close to the natural color. However, lowlights can be any color that is darker than the gray hair.

There are several lowlight application techniques, including foil weaving, painting and frosting. In weaving, stylists use a weaving technique to isolate strands of hair, color them and wrap them in foil to protect the rest of the hair. Frosting involves pulling hair through a frosting cap, whereas painting techniques involve merely painting the color onto the hair.

    How do you get your hair brown after dyeing it black?

    A:

    To change dyed black hair to brown, it is necessary to remove the black dye first by using either clarifying shampoos or color-removal products, and then dye the hair using brown dye. Once hair is dyed black, it is not always easy to remove the dye, and dye-removal products may not work. In extreme cases, if the dye does not come out, it may be necessary to wait until the hair grows back out.
