Every time I color my hair, no matter what shade, it always fades fast. Oh and it's not box color I go in and get it done. I am thinking it might be because of taking insulin. Are there any other insulin users out there that experience similar problems? Or does my hair just not play nice with color?

I don't have any early fading of my haircolor. I have been getting my hair colored long before I became a D. I also use Tressemme shampoo and conditioner when I wash my hair. I use the kind for colored hair. The color still looks OK when I get it done again. I just go to get the gray covered. I don't think insulin has anything to do with it.

Well I've tried lighter and darker. There is always significant fading by 3/4 weeks. I wash every other day with color safe shampoo. It sounds like it just might be my hair. Thanks for your input ladies.

Mine fades after about two weeks. Perms also don't stay curly on my head! I have fine hair so that may be why.
