Need advice for next phase of blonde please :)
« on: 11 Feb 16 / 12:44 PM »
So, for the first time in my life I've decided on going a light hair Color. To be more specific, silver. I've been box red dye for the last four years and knew it would be a long haul and commitment getting it light with minimal damage, but I'm kind of stuck on what step to take next. So far I have faded the red and then did a Color oops application ( pictures attached) a few days later I did an all over bleach which left it an orange/brown ( not unexpected ) and last week I did an all over bleach. I seem to have some persistent red patches in the front but the rest of it is a light Golden yellow/ orange (which I'm going to tone) but I was wondering if I could throw some Color oops in again to get the red/peach tones out or if I should just wait until my next bleach in a few weeks? I haven't toned because I was thinking that the Color ooops would strip the toner anyway? Also, do you think a bleach wash would lighten it enough or should I do an all over? Thanks in advance :)

I should also add that the first photo is my usual box dye red,
The second is after Color oops
And the third is today after the two bleachings in the past 5 weeks.
Unfortunately don't have a photo after the first bleaching, probably because it was such a revolting Color haha.

If you had a lot of colour build up it won't have all come out with one colour remover. ideally you should have continued with the colour removers until all the dye was out before starting to bleach.
So yes, try another colour remover, Colorfix is supposed to be better than Color Oops.
Getting a light enough base for silver is going to be unlikely after box reds though

Thanks for your help :) I'm not expecting to be silver anytime soon, I'm just hoping I can gradually get to a light enough base over time :) I quite like the blonde phase (lucky me :p) just did a round of the Color stripper and it's still wet but looks much better!

You should be able to get lighter, but if the red dyes have stained that staining will be permanent.
