    you don't normally have to bleach it if ya want like a brown/reddish colour or whatever
    her in the uk in the salons, if ya want it like brown/reddish then they say they have to bleach it
    but in places like hk they never do and it always come out real light, even when you have virgin hair
    i think they might use diff dye, like more stronger

    i had to bleach my hair when i went blonde lol
    but thats cuz its blonde lol

    WORTH IT?: YES [=

    Natural Hair type:
    -kinda long, straight normal hair

    Hair History:
    -mi hair naturally lightens in the summer

    Hair color Before: brown/black


    Hair color After: brown/black with platinum peekaboos



    -techinically speaking, i only used bleach. i did, however, continue to shampoo with a purple toner.

    Hair Dye:
    -clairol born blonde

    - $9?

    mi hair didn't turn platinum blonde overnight. in order to not overprocess mi hair too quickly, i bleached in steps. if you do plan on bleaching your hair, know the stretch of colors your hair must go through in order to reach your desired color.

    make sure the dye stays moist. also, i found that saram wrap helps and blowdrying [heat] speeds up the process.

    i also suggest playing around with clip in extensions until you're happy with the color

    I used the sun in spray thing with lemon which made my hair lighter because I was too lazy to actually dye it x:

    WORTH IT?: - Kind of
    Natural Hair type:
    long hair
    Hair History:
    dyed only four times
    Hair color Before:
    When I was a hair dye virgin
    Hair color After:
    First time: I really like the color

    Second: returning my hair color to normal

    Third: it's actually a blackish red, but you can't see it in the picture

    Fourth: this is me now

    the first time yes

    Hair Dye:
    First time: some japanese brand
    Second: Garnier
    Third: Framesi
    Fourth: Garnier

    Garnier was about $4 - 6
    The other two are probably really expensive (i was just their model so I don't know how much they cost)

    The japanese and Framesi dried my hair out
    Garnier really didn't do any damage, it actually made my hair better, I think it's because it actually has natural fruit oils in it

    - Texture change?
    the japanese brand made my hair a lot thinner

    Description: - The Garnier one was a cream so no drips coming to my neck! The other brands were in foils for about a half and hour to forty five minutes

    Comments: - I would suggest Garnier, doesn't cost much and I love it.

    WORTH IT?: Time will tell. Dum dum dum.
    Natural Hair type:
    -added highlights, don't like them anymore.
    Hair History:
    -highlighted golden brown, then dark brown, then red.
    -Japanese straightened twice

    Hair color Before:


    Typical Asian jet-black hair.

    Hair color After:

    Bleach?: nope.
    Hair Dye: - First time, Garnier, hope it works.
    Highlights didn't really do much.

    2nd time Japanese straightening sucked. Frazzled my hair a bit.
    Comments: Hope this works.
    keep the faith.

    l3aby143: I'm in love with the baby blue streaks! =3 Do you have long hair by the way? Did you get them done all the way to the bottom?

    WORTH IT?: - YES/NO/KIND OF... -
    Natural Hair type:
    - fine/course
    - straight/curly
    - short/medium/long hair
    - etc.

    Hair History: -
    -Virgin/Dyed ___ times - Lost count. Haha
    -Natural/Permed -I got permanent curls before, now my naturally slightly wavy hair's all grown out and I'm straightening my hair everyday
    Hair color Before: - color before -
    Hair color After: - color after -
    Bleach?: - yes/no -
    Hair Dye: - Salon
    Price: Haha yeah not telling =P Pretty pricey but worth it for the experience from a top salon I guess.

    - Damage? Not from this hair dyeing instance alone, no, but from a multitude of things prior to it =X
    - Texture change? ^ Ditto

    I'll just show my most recent dye jobs...

    I just wanted to dye my hair red over my previous hair colour:

    But bleach was only used at the roots and I requested a darker, more cool red so the red turned out much less vibrant than I had anticipated:

    So I got my hair dyed again but they bleached it first this time, and also told me they'd be adding streaks:
    Looks pink, right? It's not just me T____T Haha but it gradually became more reddish rather than pink after a few washes. It was pretty vibrant red but I didn't like the streaks!! >__> it was too emo for my liking.
    And then it faded into a more orange/brown colour which was ok but I still didn't like the streaks! Argh reminds me of the wooden desk in my room.
    image image

    So yeah I'm definitely getting it dyed again, but NOT in streak form. I want an all-over red a shade darker than the really vibrant shade I got.

    wow! The good old redheaded days. Haha it's October now and just found my old post from the front page o__O
    I can't believe how different I look. I've dyed my hair black about 3x in the meantime. Current pictures in 411. Should I go back to red? Haha idk xD

    I have a question: I have dyed hair but my roots are growing out. if i dye my hair by myself, will it turn 2 different colors? coz someone told me if u dyed ur hair by urself with black roots growing out the already dyed part will be lighter than the roots. does that make sense?
  • AutumnAutumn =] B.C,CanadaPosts: 2,738Member
    my hair was a reddish brown but it faded to a yucky orange brown -.-
    i decided that i wanted to go back to black hair, so my roots are like 2 inches now~~anyone know how long it'll take to grow all out (my hairs shoulder length) should i wait for the roots to completly come out or should i just dye it black? ._.
