You won’t need a colour remover! You can do a bleach bath or use a blonde box dye to level up as you’re not making a huge leap. I don’t recommend it often, but if your end result is wanting to be blonde a box dye might be better than bleach at this point because you don’t want to leap too many levels and it’ll deposit dye to even out any colour that lifts differently to the rest.
Don’t worry, the toner will wash out in three-four washes and leave you with a toned blonde shade. If its still patchy, pop down to a salon and get it colour corrected.
HII ): so I tried dying my hair cherry red, my hair was medium brown with a fair amount of red in it ! I used 20 vol developer and Aragon oil colour in the shade red violet brown the girl at Sally’s recommended it and when I died it it turn almost black with a faint hint of red D: how do I make it more vibrant and less dark without bleach!
Hi! The only thing you can do without bleaching is to wash wash wash! Use a clarifying shampoo to fade it out more quickly, or a mix of shampoo, vitamin c powder and bakaing soda.
Hi sorry it’s taken a while to reply.
The only deep conditioner I ever recommend is Aussie three minute miracle re-constructor. There are other great conditioners out there, but for the price and result, there’s nothing better.
To get a conditioner that puts more blue into your hair, its pretty simple. Take your bottle of conditioner, put some blue dye in it, shake it up, use as normal :)
Hi there, sorry I’ve taken a while to reply.
I have used most of the adore reds and like them, I’m sure the purple will be good. Be careful applying as its a very liquid dye so can get everywhere!
Over natural hair it’ll probably cause a purple sheen rather than a bright colour and likely last three to four weeks unless you have naturally bright blonde hair in which case it may stain grey.
Basically that red is on your hair. You can’t get rid of it by throwing more colours over it. However, red is opposite green on the colour wheel so you need an ashy green based brown that will neutralise the red/brassy tones in your hair.
Hello, please take a look at my guide here
but if you can afford to go to a salon, that’s always the first and best bet.
Hopefully it will have washed out for you now, but if not you need to use a clarifying shampoo or baking soda and vitamin c powder mixed with shampoo to really drag the colour out of your hair. Strong alkali solutions will drag the last of the dye out for you and prevent staining, just make sure you condition well afterwards.
If it turns out that its stained your natural colour still you will find eventually this usually washes out, but use hot hot water, and straighten your hair once a day (with heat protection) to help fade the colour further.
Let us know what happens!
Hi there, sorry the reply took so long.
I’m afraid your hair just isnt light enough to be a bright colour without bleaching it again.
Think about an orange piece of paper. No matter what pink crayon you use over it, it’ll always be a muddied colour. The lighter the hair, the more pure the colour.
Take a look at my bleaching guide that will help you fade your current colour and lighten it up safely.
Going from black to blonde never happens in one bleach sitting, no matter how long you bleach it or how good the bleach, so don’t worry that it didn’t lift up all in the first sitting.
Hi! Sorry its taken me SO SO long to reply. You may have already done something.
However, stripper won’t take your hair back to natural, as your natural colour no longer exists under your dye. The dyes you’ve used have lifting agents in them, so if you strip again, it’ll take out the colour and leave it the colour it was lifted to before the dye was deposited. Usually this is a gingery red colour.
