i don't know how to begin!
« on: 10 Mar 14 / 10:42 AM »
i already had blue hair multiple times but when i started an internship in a clothing shop they said i had to dye my hair! *ott*
as i really needed that internship for school i dyed my hair black but now i really would like some blue back in my hair(not my whole hair but maybe my fringe or something)
now i don't want to damage my hair so i don't want to bleach it more than 2 times actually and i know that's not enough to get blue!
but! what if i first dye it a nice purple and then put blue on it?(i already have a jar of mp blue moon )
will this work?did anyone ever do this? *anyone* *thx*

You could do a colour remover like colour B4 and others to get rid of the black dye in the pieces you want blue. Colour removers don't damage, they only dry a bit so use conditioner after. It's definitely worth it to try that before you resort to using anything with peroxide.

I've heard Kruidvat also sells some sort of colour remover without bleach. I don't know what it looks like, or what it's called exactly, but if you don't want to buy online, this might be an option. :)

It depends on how light you're able to bleach it to.

If you're not able to get a color remover and don't want to wait or pay the shipping and whatnot to order one, I would try a couple vitamin c treatments first. I've seen them work pretty well on freshly dyed dark brown, a few treatments bringing it up to a light brown/dark blonde on hair that had previously been pale yellow. It's worth a try at least :)

If you can't get it past a ginger shade then I would go for more of a warm dark purple first. Then when that fades + your hair has had time to rest you can try to lighten it further so you can get blue over it. If you use a strong and dark enough blue it will go over yellow just fine, but you should add some purple to it as well or magenta to help it from going green when it fades
Always remember to consider what your hair is going to feel like after processing it BEFORE you do it! Test strands, treatments/oils are important when it comes to hair, but the most important thing is patience!
