Hello! Your hair is probably too processed to hold the dye by the sounds.
Have you tried a different dye? XXL dyes are just…not very good.
Go with the people that have been making great veg dyes for years!
First use a protein filler, you need to health up those locks. I like Joico K pak.
Next you’ll need a dye. Look around crazy colour or bee unique’s galleries to see the shade you’re aiming for because blue comes in so many shades.
Hope this helps.
Hello! No fear!
Ash blonde dyes are green based. You need a red toner.
It will likely wash out pretty quickly, but if not a quick at-home fix is to use ketchup! Sounds gross but apparently works very well. Just pop on and leave for five-ten mins and rinse off (well!).
If you want a red corrective dye you can make one with red hair dye and lots of white condition, you literally need such a tiny amount and to leave for a minute so you don’t tint the hair pink at all.
leave it on for literally like two minutes, otherwise you’ll tint your hair purple. As it will be so diluted with conditioner, you don’t need gloves unless you’ve got a lovely pale manicure you don’t want to tint.
Most blues and purples will go well together :) Personally I don’t like crazy colour dyes, but they’re what you can get, go for it. If you go for darker blues and purples, then your dye will last longer if you don’t mind on the shade as they will ligthen as it washes out.
sorry! I took too long to reply and now I can’t find your post.
I looked up Alex, obviously he styles alot, down it’ll just look shaggy and longer on the top than the sides, but there’s loads of ways you could style it other than the classic quiff.
You can get a long shave on the clippers., it comes in number levels, if you’ve ever heard someone say “I have it shaved to number 2” number 1 is the shortest usually.
I found this helpful guide
000000 = 0.1 mm 0.250 inch (blade with no guard)
00000 = 0.2 mm 0.125 inch (blade with no guard)
000 = 0.5 mm 0.100 inch (blade with no guard)
0A = 1.2 mm (blade with no guard)
1 = 2.4 mm
1A = 3.0 mm 3/8 inch
2 = 6 mm 1/4 inch
3 = 9 mm 3/8 inch
4 = 12 mm 1/2 inch
That video helps show you what the cut happens like (scissors and clippers over comb to fade in from the nape to the crown) and what it looks like unstyled.
To style into the classic elvis style quiff you’ll need pomade (actual pomade not gel, as it holds differently) and a comb, and practice! Comb to sides into the middle from the outside, and roll the top.
Please take a good old read of my blonding guide (useful even if you don’t want to achieve white)
You’ll likely need to use a lightener, and tone it out with a box dye or toner (depending on your level)
Stripper doesn’t actually take you back to your ‘natural colour’ as they claim, as most box dyes have lightener in them, so it actually takes you to the colour it lightened to. Obviously there was some colour deposit in your hair from the red that showed up when you used the blonde.
I’m afraid this is a massive question, as I assume you know pony tails and plaits (especially on-trend plaits such as fishtail) and well as buns and using rats (those spongy donuts that give you the ‘perfect bun’).
Your best bet would be trawl around youtube, as the lovely guru’s on there will be able to help you far far more than I can!
Sorry I can’t be more help.
You could try one of their reds, and a little white conditioner mixed as most of their reds a pink base rather than orange base.
Tulip is their dark pink dye, and rubine is a darkkkk purply pink which is a really underused dye as its lovely.
Hello! You’ve probably over processed your hair, and now it won’t hang onto the pink.
It could just be that the dye doesn’t react well to the toner.
Use a clarifying shampoo, then pop some protein treatment on (I like Joico K-pak). This should help strip and fill your hair ready to receive the dye.
Come back if it doesn’t work!
