Ruined my blonde hair help me before it falls out
« on: 04 May 17 / 07:15 PM »
Okay so originally I had really pretty blonde hair that was done professionally, but then my roots grew out and I got in trouble for them at work, but because of the country I live in, it's almost impossible to find someone that can do blonde hair.

This is what I've done to my hair:

I tried to do my roots my self with root touch up,  but it turned into a disaster so I dyed with a light blonde to even it out, didn't work, so I just dyed it reddish brown because I had to go back to work the next day. few weeks later I did a bleach bath, it got a good amount out, and then I did one a few days later. after the 2nd it was light enough and I used L'Oreal lightest ash blonde to color it (I heard good things, wrong), and it turned my hair like a weird ash/strawberry blonde. I toned it but I ended up having grey/green/blue hues. I did a lemon juice and conditioner thing in my hair which got rid of the hues but now my is just like orange/yellow ugly blonde.

1. Is it possible that there is still brown dye in my hair after the bleach bath?

2. I bought the Pravana color extractor kit. Can I use this on my hair to remove all of the fake blonde box dyes I've put on it? or even the brown if its still in my hair?

3. has anyone successfully used a box dye to get a light natural blonde, and if so what did you use?

Please help I am SO stressed out because of all of this.  Thank you in advance!

(I know there are 3 questions but for me they all tie together, I hope I'm not violating the rules)

Also I've already tried using a purple/blue shampoo but it made the hues worse.

Also the toners I used were Schwarzkopf steel blue and ice

Ok, just a bit of information that will help people to advise you:

What is your natural hair colour?
What country are you in? (this can help people to recommend products that are relevant and available to you.
Do you have any photos of what your hair looks like at the moment?

It's fine to ask multiple questions in one post, but please use the modify button if you have anything to add as we don't allow double posting! (I've combined your previous two posts for you) :)

My hair is naturally a medium brown, and I live in Japan.

Here are a few pics but the lighting doesn't show it as well, and i have coconut oil in my hair which is making it look darker. Some parts are bright icy blonde and the rest is just a yellow orange mess

I'm also just contemplating just going back to brown, waiting a few months for my hair to heal, and then possibly just using a color remover.

Ok, so you can use a colour remover to see if you can get any tones left by the brown and blonde dyes out, obviously this won't take you back to your natural colour, it will take you to the lightest that particular part of your hair has been lightened to, so parts may still be brassy but at least you will have anything that has been left behind by box dyes out of the way. Make sure to get a colour remover rather than a colour stripper though as the stripper ones are more damaging.

Hair lightens in stages through red, orange, gold then yellow so it may be that the areas of your hair that are brassy have just not lifted enough to the light yellow you would need them to be in order to then tone them with a purple shampoo so that they look icy blonde. (you shouldn't lighten past a light yellow, anything past that is a matter of toning).

You mention letting your hair heal, so I wanted to add that hair cannot heal as such, you can patch it with protein and conditioning treatments to help it along the way, but essentially damage to hair is permanent, however it is a good idea to rest your hair for a while as it can take time for damage to show so you need to allow for this when deciding how much more it can take. We usually advise waiting a month after a full bleach, and a week between bleach baths. I personally wouldn't use a box dye more than once a month and I would leave a week after using a colour remover before any other processing to avoid risking it reoxidising and the colour coming back! Something you can do to help your hair is to cut off any damaged ends, as split ends travel up the hair shaft making damage worse and making it nearly impossible to grow the damage out!

The problem with putting a permanent brown dye on now would not only be that it would cause further damage but it could also contribute further to the strange green or red tones in your hair depending on whether you used a warm or ash toned dye as they are not made to use over a lightened base. If you can get hold of Adore direct dyes I would strongly recommend that you try one of their browns instead as they can be used over a lightened base, and they won't damage your hair.

You may be able to achieve an all over icy blonde eventually through bleach bathing with a good quality bleach, however this will take patience and will depend on your hair's condition as you have already processed it quite a lot in a short space of time.
