Going from blue(or any colour) to silver.
So I started off with my hair this colour
(excuse the curls, had just uninstalled dreads)
I then tried to strip as much colour as possible by using hot water, head & shoulders, cheap shampoo and fairy washing up liquid. Also read this for more tips
once I’d removed as much colour as I could I then used a blonde dye (in hind sight this was a BAD idea, my hair was ruined as was damaged more than I thought to start off with, you can read about that here)
I wish I’d used bleach baths
anyway you need to get your to a pale yellow, like the inside of banana. Then you can tone, but I used a silver shampoo: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bonacure-Schwarzkopf-Silver-Shampoo-1250ml/dp/B0027JDG12/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1306096126&sr=8-2-fkmr0
it’s seriously good stuff! I haven’t even used any silver dye! Is soooooooooooooo good!
This is it so far
I’d only left the shampoo on for a minute this time. But you can still see how good it is.
Good luck! Any questions feel free to ask
lol, the shower in the back makes it look like i have a extra long bit of hair =)
Love it pippa! And the new cut 🙂
thanks love =) my journey one was meant to be a tutorial, but figured that i should make a neater version, rather than people having to read all 9 pages! lolz
omg love! i best start doin mine..keep sayin i will n not got round to it yet hehe
Very nice and helpful Pippa - thanks.
Also, although its off topic, I ADORE your hair in the first photo - the ringlet curls are sooo cute!
lolz, thanks nickki. thats how my hair went when i took out the synth dreads. i loved it like that! was tempted to get a perm!
Thanks! I had just decided that my next color is going to (hopefully) be gray/silver.
wow thank you it looks great^^
You look great with silver hair! (and blue too :3)
I have blue and turquiose hair, but I'm going back to my old silver/white hair and this helped me 😉
just curious how long do you usually leave in that brand of silver shampoo im currently leaving it on my hair 5 mins but its loreal silver shampoo wish my hair was your colour!
i put it on for 1/2 hour when i was first trying to achieve silver. did 45mins &it went lilac =s lolz.
thanks 🙂 lol
I'm jealous! I want silver hair but I'm a bit scared for my hair since I'm trying to grow it out. I might try gray, though.
this was probably not you intention but this how-to with that photo is the BEST ad for that shampoo... it's so good that even though Im months aways from needing it I ran to add it to my amazon wishlist... gorgeous color!!! 😀
