Dip Dye Blue, help for a newbie!!
« on: 13 Jun 12 / 09:56 PM »
Hello everyone! As from my other post about dip dying, I was hoping that I could get some more help. This time on colour. I am completely new to hair dye and this is the sort of hair I am hoping to achieve.

I have bought Crazy Color Bleaching Kit, Crazy Colour Capri Blue, and Crazy Colour Pine Green. I have had a look through the galleries and think that these colours are pretty close to what I want. What do you guys think? Will I have to mix them?

The third picture is what my hair looks like now.

Any tips on bleaching/dip dying much appreciated.  :D

I've never done dip dye so I'm not much help in that area.
As for the bleaching, I would reccommend you buy some pure coconut oil and appy this for 1-2 hours before applying the bleach. Don't rinse it out, just apply the bleach straight over it. It will help protect your hair and scalp.

By the way, I love you hair, it looks gorgeous!

I definitely think the color in the photos is a teal so you can mix the blue and greens that you bought to try to get a similar color.  The swatch for Pine Green is already sort of teal-y so I would just add a little of the Capri Blue at a time until you get close the the photo. :)

I'm bleaching my hair tomorrow :o, just about to do the strand test now. How long do I need to wait before I can apply the blue dye? Can I do it straight after because its a semi?

You definitely can, but skip the conditioner before applying the dye!

Yay!! My mum bleached and dyed my hair today, it looks fantastic and its still in great condition. Its a bit more green than I had originally planned, but it is still wonderful. I was wondering how soon could I start applying leave in condition? Can I do that tonight, or will it do something to the dye as its freshy applied? Sorry if thats a dumb question.

You can apply conditioner straight after it's been dyed. That's no problem :)

Oh fiddlesticks. I'm pretty much in the same position as the OP, sorry to hijack, but couldn't find any info on how soon after to add the blue dye so I thought I'd post my own question later. Bleach is done and... I've used the conditioner that came in the kit. *Just* finished rinsing. :( How long do I need to wait now?

Veggie dye should be applied to clean, unconditioned hair ... so I'd give it a shampoo, dry and then apply the dye.  You can leave it a day or two if you don't want to undo all your hard work!
