When I had blue/green hair about a month or so ago I decided it would be a good idea to dye its a silvery blue/green, the silvery blue was beautiful, however the silvery green (the green was a pastel green) looked like shit. I use pravana vivids/pastels hair dye- and I know for fact the pravana extractor doesn’t work on pravana vivids, so my solution to getting the nasty silvery green color out I decided to color my hair purple (my color now). I could have soap capped some of the color out (mixture of bleach only use 10v or lower and shampoo) but my hair underneath my color is platinum and if I were to do that all my hair would fall right out. But if your hair is relatively healthy and not a level ten (pale yellow) you should be able to soap cap some of it out. But if you don’t want to do that you can always try purple shampoo, Sally beauty supply carries a generic purple shampoo as well as the shimmer lights purple shampoo, this might be able to get some of the color out. Purple shampoo is used to tone out the yellow under pigments when you bleach your hair, also if you use it enough it can/will make your hair platinum/silver.
Anonymous asked: I have a question about hair colour. I recently dyed my own hair black about 2 weeks ago, but now I want to go light pink. If I go to a salon for that how many sessions would it take to go from black to light pink? Like, how long would it take to strip all the black out of my hair? Thanks!
It honestly depends on the stylist. Black box dye is the hardest thing to remove from your hair. You can buy hair color remover but it doesn’t always take out all hair dyes, it also might only give you a result of one level lower. However you can use the extractor multiple times (refer to manufactures directions, before extracting). When you bleach over black hair dye it doesn’t lift evenly and regardless of how careful your stylist is, there will be damage since it is bleach. If you want light colors such as pastels you need to be a level 10 or lower (pale yellow/platinum), but if you don’t want it pastel, you need to lift your hair to the recommended level or lighter for the color to show up as vibrant as you want/ the swatch of hair shown. Keep in mind that the under tone of the level you lift to will affect your hair color. I would also do research on finding the best stylist who has the most experience with color correction. And you will want to do a lot of reconditioning to prevent more damage, and you’re going to want to not uses as much heat on your hair.
Things you want to make sure to let the stylist know:
If you have bleach already in your hair prior to the black dye- this is EXTREMELY important.
What’s your natural hair color.
I hope this helps, sorry for the super long answer!
