Hey thanks for your response,
The majority of it was virgin and has only been bleached three times, one of which was a bleach bath over about 3 months or so, bleach bath was done 3 weeks ago with just one application of purple conditioner done day of the bleach bath (so that current photo is what i'm left with since then). The ends (about 2-3 inches) have been through the wringer a bit but before the initial bleaching 3-4 months ago went a good 2 years dye free and are in pretty good shape considering, I am willing to sacrifice them though.
-When I do dye it I was planning on just diluting down some Ebony from Directions as I live in NZ and we have very limited access to brands and product ranges here. Has anyone had any experience with making grey from a straight black dye?
