Guess I worded it wrong the dye doesn't totally wash out, but it will lighten with every wash that you do. That's why shampoo and conditioners are made for people who dye their hair. It's to help prevent the fading of the color from your hair.
I went to beauty school right out of high school. My Mom wanted me to be a hair dresser and I didn't. I managed to go almost all the way thru the course. I even was up on the floor doing customers hair. Matter fact I cut my Mother in Laws hair like 8 months prior to meeting my hubby at. How strange is that eh. I quit the academy like 4 month prior to graduation. I didn't want to cut hair for a living, I wasted a bunch of money listening to my Mom and paid a student loan forever because of it. I knew deep in my heart I wanted to work in Finance and it took a long time to reach that goal but I did it.
Joy, just so you know, if you go to the local beauty supply store they can show you that they do sell hair color that is just meant for one use, a semi permanent that usually last 10- 12 washes and then a permanent dye, which they don't wash out, but do fade and lighten every time you wash your hair.
Zimms, I hope if you dye your hair again it lasts this time. Take care and let us know how it goes if you try it again.
