Its hard to say as I don’t know what colour base you had and what dyes you’re using. When bleaching your hair, the lighter your base, the more likely you’re going to end up with the colour you want to achieve.
There are some dyes that just never go the colour they are supposed to, and some (like grey) are time sensitive. Grey for example is a blue or purple base, so if left on for too long then the base colour shows more than the light version of that.
Often it helps looking on haircrazy on the dye galleries to see what colour other people’s hair has become when using dyes. Reds sometimes have purple tones for example and if you can see that on others, you can try a different brand.
Sorry I can’t help much more without specifics.
I’m sorry but your natural colour no longer exists under the dye. When you use a box dye, the chemicals in the dye lift your natural colour in order to deposit another colour onto/into the hair. If you got it stripped it would likely turn out a light brown/gingery colour. However the salon can do this for you, then dye it as close to your natural colour as possible to help the growing out process be much more managabel and less noticeable.
Hello! Yes it should do :) ash is green based so it counteracts the red tones in your hair.
Although if its currently brassy and you want it all white, you need a purple toner. :) excellent ones include Matrix so silver and bonacure colour save.
Hi! You need to use a mixture of vitamin c powder, baking powder and clarifying shampoo, scrub on and leave for twenty mins, then wash out really thoroughly and condition to heck. Its drying but really drags the colour out.
roots are a funny thing! Even a small change in your diet can change how your new hair growth reacts to dyes. It could be that you used a different bleach?
You roots will usually take vegetable dye less quickly as they are less processed and won’t drink up the colour so easily (with box dyes and bleach the roots process first and most quickly as they’re heated by the scalp)
best thing to do is to try again, just put the dye on your roots and leave for an hour or so (if its a veggie dye) or consider trying a different dye brand!
I know lots of blue heads have this problem.
I’m the same :) exactly the same!
The styling that works for me is wet set sponge rollers. Obviously if you’re not into vintage styles, then its not for you, but any kind of wet set with a settling lotion is more likely to be able to tame your hair.
Make sure you get it thinned and think about some layers when you next get it cut as this will help.
There are some fantastic powders now that you sprinkle onto the hair that help with teasing and styling. They give the hair volume and stop it from slipping out of styles. You can also get the same effect with some dry shampoos.
Try blow drying your hair with your head upsidedown for instant volume without difficult styling.
I’m not really sure what styles you want to do, but products are your friend :) I have the opposite, crazy thick fizzy hair, and without products there’s no way I could tame it. Everyone has to experiment with what is best for their own hair type.
Hello! You sound like you look after your hair really well, so this is strange especailly at the top of your head and in your bangs.
Do you heat treat/straighten it?
Often with flat irons we go over the top layers and bangs much more than the top of the head so its likely that is the cause. Make sure you use a great protectant, and straighten as little as possible.
Hello you’d get a pastel green of course :) it just might be a bit patchy unless you bleach quickly and evenly.
Only do a bleach bath (half peroxide half shampoo) for a short time to avoid lifting the colour completely.
