Should it be ok to bleach sections of my hair?
« on: 27 Mar 16 / 10:08 PM »
I bleached my hair about 3 weeks ago but I have some darker bits. Would it be ok to bleach these now or should I leave it a little while?

Ok, thanks!

Is there any way of getting rid of peach hair without bleach? I'm now pink instead of red but after a few washes, the bottom 3/4 of my hair is peach and my roots are a nice pink. I'm having trouble evening out my hair...

Toning with purple conditioner can help with the peachy fade, or adding some blue to the pink mix to make it more violet toned for those areas,  but as it is caused by the lengths being more yellow than the roots, evening out your base is the only long term solution

I've been using purple toning shampoo for the past 2 weeks but it doesn't do anything because I think the peach is just too dark. It's been a month since I bleached so should it be ok to bleach all of my hair now or am I going to ruin it?

I would strand test.
 As your darker areas are from old dye, they may not lift, or not lift enough to justify the amount of damage. To go from permanent dark dye to light enough for pastels is unlikely though

I don't really want to go light enough for pastels, I just need to even out my hair somehow. It looks a bit silly to have perfectly pink roots and the rest dark peach. Even with bright red over it, it still fades to pink and peach.

What colour do you ultimately want? If you want to stay red, you may be better off just using a better dye that won't fade so quickly, or using an orange based red on the roots.

At the moment I want whatever will sort my hair out lol. I'm guessing Special Effects would be the best reds to use?

I would say Special Effects then Adore for super long lasting reds, or Ion Colour Flash. Directions reds do not last well
Can you add a pic of your current colour/fade?

Yeah, sure. I did use a mix of Adore and Directions for my red, should I just use the Adore next time?

When I was red my base colour was mostly light blonde as my natural colour is mousey and it doesn't go through a ginger stage when bleaching, just mousey to yellow to blonde and bits of mine still used to fade peach and other bits pink, it's one of the pitfalls of red I think.
SFX reds were far and away the best for me, I could get a month without any fade, then up to another month with it less even (washing every third day with shampoo). I know a lot of people get good results with Adore but I found the colours great but the fade fast!
The only thing with SFX is if you want to fade it to change your colour, I had to go darker as I couldn't get it to fade out.

It's been over a month since I bleached my hair now. Should it be ok to re-bleach all of my hair to get it even?

I thought you'd have done it at least three weeks ago! Yes, if there's no sign of bad damage, proceed with the usual caution.

I was going to but got scared as my hair hates bleach, thought I'd give it a couple more weeks to recover from last time. My hair doesn't feel terrible anymore, I've been reading about Olaplex though... anyone used it?

Yeah. My new growth is definitely better for it. It didn't help already damaged bits as other people have had.
