I have my med/dark brown hair coloured at the hair dresser but the grays come back within a few weeks. And I don’t mean growing out, it’s like the colour hasn’t attached to the silvers.
I’ve tried to go the blonde foils, blend in look - but end up an orangey colour after a while.
Help

Complain to your hairdresser or find another one. Sounds like they are not doing it right. Mine grow out rather than wash out.

I would change hairdressers to be honest, her product may be dodgy or perhaps your hair needs a treatment before applying it.
My greys grow out from the roots and do not come off the hair.

Same
I use blonde foils and mine grow out not fade out.

I’d see another hairdresser.

I wonder if she's using semi-permanent?  That's what mine is, and it fades a bit and the whitest hairs lose their colour first.

It's a deliberate choice on my part because a fair portion of my hair is still the same auburn it always was and there is zero obvious 'growing out'.

If your shampoo/conditioner has silicon in it it coats the hair and stops the colour from absorbing well.  I had this problem as well.  You need to wash with something to strip the silicon out.  I bought a 'stripping' shampoo from Price Attack but found washing with a little dish washing detergent before colouring had a similar effect.

Every body loves Pantene but it makes colouring your hair tricky. As PP says, it can build up on your hair.

I've only ever dyed my hair at home but I've given up on it for the same reason as you OP, most of my greys are around the sides of my head near the ears and the colour just never seems to 'take' there.  It's not that it washes out quickly, it doesn't even take hold there in the first place.

Waiting for it all to go grey so I can break out the pastel rinses.  Seriously, it would be cool for me as I have red/auburn hair, there's never been a bright colour I could match into it as streaks and I'm not a fan of the bleached blonde look so a nice silver grey/white would do me just fine.

Yes, I second the stripping shampoo recommendation.    If the issue is your conditioner it will make a huge difference to the longevity of hair dye.

I use the Toni & Guy daily detox clarifying shampoo from the supermarket.   It is way too harsh (imo) to use daily, but it is really good at stripping built up product out of hair and dye definitely takes better after I use it.

Also, look at the product you are using afterwards.  Shampoos like head and shoulders - something to do with the active ingredient - strip colour really quickly.

Hello, hairdresser here! I would go back to the salon and explain what's happened- many people have very resistant hair,  and the hairdresser can adjust her formula accordingly.

Id also second the ditching of Pantene. It's just crap. Anything with silicon used overt long periods of time will cause issues with color,  or breakage.

Last colour I had at a hairdresser came out with my white hairs still there. Wont be going back. I will also be making sure to let the colourist know at my next appt (whenever that might be) that my whites stayed white after my last colour.

But doesn't nearly every conditioner contain silicone? I found it really difficult to get one that doesn't.

This thread is the first I ever knew about silicone in conditioner, so just read the ingredients on mine, and there appears to be no silicone.  It's Jurlique Lavender. (The only shampoo and conditioner that doesn't irritate my scalp.)

I have been told this for years and I’ve used it for years. I also have my hair coloured every 8 weeks or so... foils and colour to grey roots and I have extremely healthy hair. No breakages, no issues with colours ...
I will not pay a fortune for salon product which has similar ingredients.

Mum's got a patch of grey she has had from her early 30's that has never taken a colour of any sort. It also doesn't hold a perm. Multiple hair dressers, in different states.

Greys can be resistant as others said. Maybe you need a different formula or even go under that heat lamp thing? I’ve got lots of greys & have gradually gone blonde. A purple shampoo gets rid of the orange tones, you can even apply it to dry hair if you have gone really brassy.
