Wanting to go white but still have orange patches
« on: 31 Jan 16 / 06:57 PM »
Hey everyone!

I managed to bleach my brown hair back to blonde, and at the moment it's white blonde at the roots and ends, more of a yellowy blonde in the middle and I still have some orangey patches around the hair.

I have bleached once, then used Loreal Feria Platinum blonde twice afterwards (not straight away, I gave it a few weeks in between) and still no joy.

I know how to get rid if the yellowy tones by using purple toner (which I currently have Touch of Silver shampoo and conditioner) but I don't want to use it yet as it wont get rid of the orangey tones.

Here's a photo of it's current state. The flash doesn't do much justice but hopefully you can tell.



I don't particularly want to bleach my hair again, although I have kept my hair in pretty good condition. Will I have to bleach it again or can I use the Loreal Feria Platinum blonde kit until it gets rid of the orangey patches? SO far I've used the kit twice (left on for 45mins) and it does fade the tiniest bit but it's still pretty obvious.



P.S!: I will not use colour stripper as it damages my hair more than bleach does. Also, it doesn't work at all on my hair.

If the orange patches are old dye that you tried to bleach out then you have no other option than to use a colour remover. (Colour remover and colour stripper are not the same thing btw)
They are not damaging in the way that bleach is (ie it doesn't affect the internal structure of the hair) but can be very drying, especially on already fragile hair, so deep condition after.
When people claim colour remover s don't work, generally they have been using them incorrectly. Apply quickly to clean unconditioned hair. Cover, keep warm and keep on for the full hour. You may need to wave a hair dryer over it. Then rinse like crazy with really hot water, keeping the hair moving.
if you are adamant that you won't use one, then the only other choices you have are cutting the orange areas off or going for a darker colour. Your hair is likely to disintegrate before the orange is out if you continue to bleach it (Yes, Feria platinum blonde still counts as bleaching)

And make sure it's a colour remover, not stripper.

Could you recommend a colour remover please? I used Colour B4 and it was awful on my hair :(

I really like Pro:Vokes colour remover, others prefer Decolour remover (NOT stripper) I don't have issues with Colour B4 though. All colour removers do is shrink the artificial pigment molecules so they can be washed out. They lift the cuticle a little to allow the dye molecules to escape, but that can be fixed with a vinegar rinse and good conditioner. If your hair is too fragile to cope with a colour remover it is too fragile to be processed any further

Okay thank you I'll give Pro:voke a try :)

Just apply to the orange parts, no need to put it where your hair is already light enough.
