Box black to bright red, how I did it . .
« on: 06 Aug 10 / 06:13 PM »
Well, I always wanted to try bright red hair. So it was black and I had it stripped and it went lightish blacky-brown. So the hairdresser put a red dye over it and it went brown. So I bleached it and it went orange, so I put a red dye on it and it went black again. So I bleached it again and there we were back at orange and fried completely dead. So I got the horrified hairdresser to cut off all the dead hair and let it grow healthy again. So I had a bright orange bob (and i cried for a week), so then, last night, 4 weeks later I dyed it red ………… and it’s red!!!!!  Yaaaaaaaay!!!  But still a bob so now I have to keep colouring (not dying) it bright red and let it grow again.

It took 4 months in total and I swung from madly optomistic to appalled on a number of occasions. Was it worth it?  YES, if it grows and i can maintain it.
The mistake i made was bleaching the second time. If i'd used Manic Panic over the first lot of orange it would still have been long  Sad

For the record I used Jerome Russell bleach (the BEST like EVER), then Feria P67, then Manic Panic over the resulting orange-red.

Just add to that, the Manic Panic is Vampire Red over the orange and its been on there 4 weeks now with 2 washes a week! Amazing staying power  :D

I just did the roots with L'Oreal Magicontrast Magenta red. As my roots are grey it's gone brighter but covers very well.

Thanks   :D The top pic was getting ready for a Burlesque evening as we are great fans of Burlesque. Im gutted that I lost the length by dying my hair bright red but if I can get it the same length as the top picture and keep red I'll be thrilled   :D

Great pics cherryfest, red really suits you. I noticed you said you used majicontrast magenta red, that is a pinky colour on my hair, I find the redest red is red and not magenta red. If the majocontrast suits and colours your grey you should try that next time.
