Colour b4 on black hair w/henna underneath?
« on: 07 Jan 16 / 04:26 PM »
I did a stupid thing and dyed my hair black a month or so ago, and now I regret that and want my hair blonde (or at least a lighter colour..blonde might take a while). I want to use colour b4 to strip out some colour, but I'm afraid of how it will turn out. I have several layers of henna under the newly dyed black hair, and I have no idea how the colour b4 will react to that. It worked wonders on my ginger hair last time I tried it, but that was box dye only.

Anyone tried colour b4 on henna dyed hair or on hair dyed with a box dye over the henna? I'm afraid it'll turn out a really patchy ugly brownish colour :(

The colour remover should take the black out quite easily, i have never tried it on henna, but you might find this thread interesting

Sounds promising, thanks! I'll probably try and fade some of the colour first and then I'll try the colour remover. Hoping it at least will be a coppery brown or just take me back to ginger. I'll provide some photos for those interested whenever I get around to start on removing my hair colour ^^

I'd definitely be interested to see how your fading goes :)

Yes I have. My hair is naturally strawberry blonde. Had been dyeing it for years with pure red henna. It was pretty fiery. Anyway, getting older and have a lot of white in the re-growth, so got tired of touching up. Used. 2 applications of Color oops then. 2 of color fix. Lughtened it up quite a bit. The henna on the last. 4 months of root touchups had amla added. That portion is very resistant to removal.
