Ask and you shall receive! I’m not very knowledgeable on how to cut hair, but I know types of cut…
People tend to ask me about dye as its very popular and easier to do at home than cutting.
Cutting advice should really come from your stylist, but I never stop people asking me. <3
Hi honey! Sounds like its staining. You could try another quick bleach bath in a week if you think you’re in good condition, but no more than 15 mins.
You could also try a red toner as red cancels out green.
It sounds gross but a colour specialist at an interview I went to once told me that ketchup works well as a red toner. The upshot of using it (even though its a bit gross) is that it won’t stain the rest of your hair pink/red.
If you’re wanting to go pink anyway, then its likely to cancel out those nasty green bits unless they’re really bright!
Sounds like you’ve bleached it enough. Sometimes you just won’t be able to get the colours out, and if its uneven, you’ll drive yourself mad.
You could try a colour remover on it such as colour b4, but it depends what condition your hair is in?
Luckily reds are pretty good at covering orange tones. I’m not sure how even it’ll be or look over the brown, but its worth a try.
If you really want to do another gentle lift then try bleach bathing it
but be careful!
You have the same hair as me by the sounds. The trouble for you is that red is one of the hardest colours to get out of your hair. The good news is that it sounds like you know your stuff.
You’ll first need to fade your red out, this is likely to take a couple of months, but shorter if you do it intensively. Start by using clarifying shampoos, and my baking powder mix.
Do this only twice a week at most, and deep condition to hell afterwards
Try the dish soap method too, again much conditioning.
If you’re left with pink staining, you’ll then need to bleach bath your way out of the situation. You may be left with pastel pink hair, but hey, thats ok, purple is made of blue and red, so it should cover ok if you choose a blue based purple. Darker purples cover most colours really well, so if you can’t lift that red out, try a deeeep purple. If you check my hair atm over on moreaboutthedo.tumblr.com you can see I used dark purple to go over my orange and red bits. Covered perfectly.
Here’s my guide, it’ll walk you through all the steps I’ve talked about above in detail.
I’m afraid you won’t be able to lighten your hair without bleach, or rather, you can, but any lightener can be just as harmful as bleach.
To steer away from the very harsh chemicals choose a box dye with no ammonia and lovely oils and things in it (so many are advertised these days). You only have to lighten your locks 1-2 levels so it should be easy. Always check the sides of the box to make sure your colour will result in your desired end colour.
To do it very gradually, its best to go to a salon and get them to use foils to lift the colour over a few sessions.
Hope this helps!
Hello! Yes burgundy would help cancel out the green. Green tones are counteracted by red ones so you’ll be fine. If you’re happy with your colour now, try a ketchup toner. It’ll be a bit gross but I hear it works fantastically for getting unwanted green tones out of your hair.
Step one - Slather hair in ketchup
Step two - put plastic over that head
Step three - wash out well!
Heather is a very pale dye, lilac basically. Unfortunately this means you’ll need to lift your sisters hair to a white blonde before dying. Its always best to use 10 vol as its more gentle, however its unlikely to lift your sisters hair to white in one go. I would say start with a 20 vol, wait a few weeks, then repeat with a 10. At this stage she still may only be orange and it may take a further wait and bleach bath to lift.
You say she has loads of hair, I would suggest going to a salon and getting it bleached out or foiled up gently.
Here’s my guides on white hair and lilac hair
go forth gently!
Hello! Sorry for the delay in replying.
Directions violet is normally quite a good colour, but its a blue based purple, so it seems like as its washed out, you’ve been left with stains from the pigment. A bleach bath should lift these right out. If you’ve not already tried, then washing up liquid could drag them out before you put that bleach on. Just make sure you condition well afterwards.
Hello :) Brown and turquoise is a classic combo, and matches really well.
You can dye it the same day as bleaching, bright dyes are vegetable dyes and do no harm to the hair whatsoever, they act the same way as a conditioner would.
Hello! I think it’ll really suit you! Most colours suit most people if you have the guts to carry them off :D I think it’ll look lovely with your skin tone however.
