I have a section of my hair bleach blonde. (My Natural hair colour is medium/dark brunette) Since I broke up with my ex last summer, I've had a section, on the right side of my head, under a top layer of brown, different colours. It was blonde (the time I got it done professionally). Then I've had it red, purple and blonde again... I recently did it myself and bleached it blonde, but its too bright and I don't really like it and would like to dye it again...
I'd love to go a vibrant red, pink or purple, but if I dye over the bleach, will it go a horrible colour?
I just want some advice really; is it possible to dye bleached hair? Are there any negative effects?
In my experience, I had bleached blonde hair, and used schwarzkopf live luminance purple over it, and it stayed a great vibrant purple for 10 weeks, until I got bored. I then did the same brand (but not a luminance) in a red colour, and it faded within a week to ginger.
It won't go a horrible colour, but it just might require a lot of redying.
Not at all, quite the reverse. To get a vibrant colour it needs to be bleached platinum first.
I personally recommend 'special effects' dyes if you can get hold of them - virgin rose is a wonderful colour and sounds like it might be exactly what you're after. They're veggie dyes, so they will help condition your hair, and won't damage it further.
my best friends girlfriend, dies her hair literally 4 times a week, mostly bleaching and hers doesnt seem to have been affected by it, soo i wouldnt worry all that much, especially if your use natural stuff.
Thankyou for all your help guys!
I totally get it now, I guess bleach blonde is like a blank canvas!
I'd just heard horror stories of it turning green?!
Thanks! I'm gonna browse for really vibrant colours!
