I used the Clairol N Easy temporary (6 to 8 wash). The golden brown shades seem to last ages - far more than 8 washes but the blond ones don't last very long and end up a bit mauve (but stil better than the chemo white).
I photographed the results of my post chemo hair colouring experiments in my blog here: http://iameclectica.blogspot.co.uk/p/chemo-hair-regrowth_16.html
Thank you all for your replies. I have bought a semi permanent colour from Holland and Barrett which I'm hoping to use tomorrow. My only concern is that as I am completely silver grey apart from a black strip down the back of my hair, I am unsure how light my hair will be when coloured. As I want to go blonde (as I was prior to treatment) I have bought a darker blonde colour because I think that it will go lighter than it says on the box. Does anyone have any tips please, many thanks x
After 3 months I started colouring with temporary hair dyes - the ones that are supposed to be gentler than the permanent ones but only last 6-8 washes. Covered up the chemo white very nicely
I finished chemo at the end of August and succesfully used the cold cap. My hair thinned a little but I did not need my wig and just wore a cap/hat. However prior to chemo, I had my hair coloured and now because I haven't been able to have it dyed, I am completely grey with a black streak down the back. My OH says it looks a bit like a skunk I know I can't have it coloured at the hairdressers until 6 months post chemo but does anyone know what over the counter colours are ok to use as I really want to cover the grey. Thanks.
