    QUESTION! >3> For anyone who's had silver / lilac hair before:

    How many times did you have to bleach it?
    How damaged was your hair afterward, and if you have any tips that made it less damaging (I heard using a color stripper before bleaching helps, is it true?), that would help lots!

    Thanks :)

    Can any expert/experienced hair dying soompiers help me out with this? :D

     My hair is this colour at the moment, maybe faded a little bit...
    11bois3.jpg

    I have a half a bottle of 20 V 6% pyroxide left, meaning I got around 10V ~3% left? And a random red hair dye tube that a friend got for me from HK.

    Anddd this is the current box I normally use from Schwarzkopf, Intensive Red.
    2dalpnc.jpg
    My question is, what do I have to do to achieve the colour below? Maybe a tiny bit darker than that. Should I mix the leftover I had from my last hair dye (the pyroxide and maybe even the leftover hair dye) with my current Schwarzkopft box dye? How about should I go doing that? :) I could go to the hair dresser but I kinda want to try using box dye first to dye it gradually and see how it goes. I often dye my hair the same colour every 2-3 months, never dye my hair any colour except red...

    Or should I go for a blonde/orangeish hair like Hyori Lee ;__; I'm really not sure which to pick!

    This might be a stupid question... but;
    I dyed my hair about 4 months ago a darkish brown (but it looks like a honey brown in the sun) and the roots are now showing. I want to dye my hair another hair colour so if I do would I need to apply the hair dye on the roots first then one the rest of my hair?
    Thanks in advance ^-^

    Hi there! I have a question -.-;
    I'm thinking of dyeing my hair again (it's currently naturally dark brown-black..although it's slightly lighter in the roots because I dyed it about two years ago).

    I'm not sure which hair dye to choose: 
    Etude House Bubble Hair Color 
    Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color

    I've heard good reviews about both... But you see, the problem is I have really dry and damaged hair from my previous DIY hair coloring (I used L'Oreal...never going to use those ever again in my life!). I don't want my hair to be more damaged. My friend says Liese smelled more chemical and when she dyed her hair with it, it came out really dry and the color faded after 2 weeks! But then again, the Liese hair dye is more expensive than the Etude House one (Liese is about $17 and the Etude house is $13) -.-;

    So what do you guys recommend? ^^ hehe I'm open to all suggestions...

    How to get this hair colour?
    11bois3.jpg

    I dyed my hair with L'oreal Paris: Feria Violet Soft Black and it turned out more red than purple. I was wondering how I could make it more like that without dying it again?

    If you just let it fade it should turn out like that, that's how my hair looked after 2 months+ of not dying. Also use red colour shampoo like John Frieda etc. I use a lot of heat on my hair as well so I think that's why it turned out that fade-red/purpleish colour ^^'
    use a spray leave in/colour protecting conditioner too if you wish :)

    A few months ago, I got highlights on the ends of my hair and a bit on my bangs (my fail attempt at ombre lol) and that was the first time I ever dyed my hair. I got it done at a salon, and I guess my hair was pretty stubborn because the color didn't show up at first until she went back and put more on... now I want to dye my whole head brown. How do I get everything to be even? I really want to do it at home this time :/ Will dyeing the highlighted parts black again first work?

    For those who want an ombre dyed style hair, I found a great tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuRzz4orjYM&feature=related

    It's for black/dark brown virgin hair. I just thought I'd post this because I'm searching on how to fix my stupid hair, since yesterday, I went to the salon to try and get this ombre dyed hair style (leave it to the professionals, right?)... BIG MISTAKE, they f*cked me!!

    Now I'm stuck with ugly bright random highlights half way up my hair in RANDOM PLACES and even at my ROOTS!! I LOOK LIKE A SKUNK!!! -_____-

    $70 bucks for pros who half-Richard Simmons the job. I want to go back and make them fix it, but knowing them, they'd mess it up even more, not worth damaging my hair even further...

    have any one tried the Garnier Nutrisse Haircolor, R3 Light Intense Auburn Nourishing Color Creme Permanent im interest in this because it says for dark hair :)


    i used the R2 medium intense one. it turned out a pretty noticeably red and in the sun it was really bright also i had brownish hair before. but sadly it fades out pretty quickly. like 2 weeks if you wash your hair everyday!

    So I have a question about dying you hair.
    I'm planning to put two orange streaks in my hair, and I wanted to ask about bleaching it.
    I'm going to use raw white out 40 vol bleach kit, and I was wondering if after bleaching, do you directly dye your hair right after? Or do you have to wait a day or something?
    Sounds confusing but what I'm basically asking is right after bleaching your hair can you dye it? Or do you need to wait a while?

    I guess it depends on how much you value the condition of your hair ... lol
    like I don't really care, I'll bleach it 5 times in a day and just condition it more often afterwards

    but if you care how silky smooth your hair is, I'd suggest (deep) conditioning and giving your hair around 2 weeks rest before dying

    however if you intend on bleaching once only, you'll get a brassy orangey colour anyway ~__~

    Hi guys! I'm back again, with pictures of my previous dilemma. xD So you'll see what stage I'm at and what I went through this weekend to get it like this. Then what I plan to do with it after a couple of weeks (since I don't want to completely kill off my hair and turn it into a bird's nest LOL).

    1. Soooo, here's my black virgin hair. I've been growing it out for about a year now. You won't get to see the back, just the color. It's pretty long in the back.
    Snapshot_20120214.jpg

    2. I was waiting for the perfect moment to color my hair and I originally wanted an "ombre" look. The picture I showed my stylist were more like highlights, but nevertheless, it still had the "ombre" effect at the ends of her hair. I explained to him clearly what I wanted, and well, he half-assed my hair, and the colors were far from the ones in the pic, more like clownish blonde, plus they were scattered in random spots and blotchy, some at my roots, some at my ends. It had no fade-out effect, just really blotchy and ugly. I had to go home and dye it a darker shade to make it less noticeable, but it still looked really bad.

    Example picture I showed the stylist of what type of hair coloring I wanted:
    blondehighlightssonbrunette-2.jpg

    Turned out like this, but I couldn't take a detailed pic of how blotchy it actually was (color was like really mustard clownish looking blonde):
    Snapshot_20120402.jpg

    I tried to conceal it with a darker color, which made it a little better I guess:
    Snapshot_20120401_2-1.jpg

    3. Then I went back to the salon (took a risk I guess since he was willing to fix it for free). Turned out kind of what I wanted, but I'll have to fix it and add some brown to create the correct "ombre" effect I wanted. My hair is completely fried and damaged now because he had to re-do everything. He really destroyed my hair. I could tell he was reluctant to re-do my hair too, he really managed to pull out my hair and create some new split ends... But the color is what's important I guess. x___x
    Snapshot_20120403.jpg

    Now I'm basically waiting a couple of weeks to dye the mid parts (where black fades to blonde) like a brownish auburn color. Hopefully it'll turn out something like this:

    Wish me luck!!

    good luck! and that stylist totally doesnt get the difference between streaks, highlights, and ombre. I found that if you don't live in a trendy city, a lot of stylist dont know jack about how to do ombre or highlights for the matter, a lot of them will put streaks (chunky strands of blonde in your hair, that dont blend in with your hair). Why boggles my mind, b/c ombre is the pretty simple to achieve. I think you're better off doing it yourself next time. Hopefully, you get the results you wanted.

    Definitely agree. I should've known better. My mom convinced me to have a "professional" do it because since they are "professionals" they automatically "know what they are doing". I thought... hey.. what could go wrong? Haha. I'm so naive. But anyways, thank you for the support, I appreciate it. :)

    hey there, I used Schwrazkorpf Intensive Colour Creme, Intense Red. (in Australia, not sure if they have them overseas) They have two of them I think, one is especially for dark hair because they also included some lightening ingredients and the other one is just normal one. Just keep dying it over and over again every 1.5 months or so. That colour in the image is my hair after 2 months of not dying, so it's more like the "washed out" version of it. Hope that helps!

    You'll have to strip the dark colors out. It's harder to dye your hair a lighter color if it's been dyed black.
    Here's a page on home remedies as an alternative for least damage, then there's a list of actual products you can buy if home remedies do not work.
