Iron infusion and hair dying

I recently had an iron infusion for low iron levels. A short time later I went to have my hair cut and dyed. As the girl was applying the dye, my hair started to turn purple. It was washed out and I was unable to complete the hair dying process. Does anyone have and information on the effect of iron infusions on the hair and how long will it remain in the hair? ## There is a chance that it was actually due to your low iron levels, rather than the iron infusion.
