The journey to flame hair!
« on: 20 Feb 12 / 01:32 PM »
I am currently on my way to fulfilling a lifelong dream of fiery, Celtic warrior hair! I really like how it is at the moment but I want the colour to be more intense, so I've ordered some orange + red to mix together and hopefully make the warmer tones really pop. But for now... ginger!

Finally, an update! I spent a while playing around with ratios of dyes for a couple of days as I went for a bright orange at first but didn't like how it looked on me. I ended up with a really amazing red, as the day I dyed my hair I ended up getting really ill and didn't wash it out for nearly 24 hours because I was stuck in bed! Finally got round to getting a photo of it, this week has been ridiculously hectic.

This is Directions Fire + Mandarin + a teensy bit of Rose Red, and a big splodge of conditioner. Enjoy my amazing sticky-out hair - I went to a gig last night and just tied it in a bun this morning so it's all over the place now! :D



I've had no rub-off whatsoever and it hasn't faded at all since I did it a week ago. Leaving the dye on for so long was a very happy accident!

Oh my goodness, that colour just looks so alive.... I totally love it, interesting about the 24 hour thing..... Been hearing lots about leaving it on for a long time and next to no rub off!

You are soooo lucky to have such stunning hair and I agree with everyone above.... Your natural beauty is quite breathtaking xx

I swear I've never met a nicer bunch of people on the internet. Seriously though, you should see how terrifying I look first thing in the morning before saying things like that! :P

Still very little fade and no rub-off to speak of. I really like this mix as the colour doesn't have a garish luminous sheen to it like some can. I just wish I'd known more about veg dyes when I first dyed my hair bright red a few years ago as I might not have given up on it so quickly!

Final result is downright stunning! I'm sitting here with a mix of sfx candyapple and nuclear on my head as we speak, I hope I get a result half as good as that! : )

Both colors are so beautiful! I was actually looking to get the flame shade, but you pull of the red perfectly! :)

Update time! Because I mixed all sorts of reds to get my colour, the fade was truly horrible:



I'd hoped that mixing orange and pink-based reds would result in a nice even fade, but it seems that the colours just faded separately, as and where they pleased!

So, after a Colour B4 (normal strength because that's all Boots had) and a L'Oreal box dye, my hair now looks like this:



(Please excuse my dead-looking eyes; it has been a long day!)

And a bit more ginger in direct light/daylight:



I actually love it! I need to start thinking about upcoming job interviews and such, so it's a good colour to have for now. In a month's time I might start sneakily lightening it either to get to white or to get a really good base for other colours...
