Another Colourful hair question....
So, as you may know i'm gonna dye my hair blue (over bleached hair). Now i'm going to get used to dying it first but how do you do more one than one colour without ending up in a colourful mess???
Things like this
Also once you need to re-dye your roots do you need to bleach all of your hair to colour them or just the roots then colour them?
And when you want to change your colour do you just bleach it off then colour it a different colour?
I really dont know but I must have pictures!!!!!!!
I've coloured my hair millions of times, and I've found the funky colours may not last long enough to have to worry about regrowth. But, if you want to keep it up, you will have to continue bleaching whatever it is you want to hold the colour. I would apply the colour just like they do highlights. Use a comb, get a small amount of hair, brush on the colour and cover it with foil. Do as many as will cover the desired area of hair.
Hope that helps.
If you have it done professionally, the colour will last much longer and look... well more professional... Not that I ever did, but I've seen it done.
The best colors don't last long at all. The best way I've found for it to last is leaving the color in for at least an hour. When it comes to touch ups, no need to bleach your roots unless you absolutely need it. Just repeat the steps you did for the first application. When you actually need to touch your roots up only bleach your roots. Beach is permanent and VERY damaging. After your root touch up apply your color to the roots first wait about 15 minutes and then follow the steps for your first application.
As far as multiple colors I've used foil to keep it separate from other hair. Another option is to take the hair and twirl it tight and secure with a hair tie.
One tip to keep in mind is the colors will run when you wash your hair so generally you should keep your lighter colors on top with darker colors on bottom.
Also, try "Special Effects" hair color, I've found it last the longest.
When I did black and white, I just separated my hair by combing water through it, then letting it dry before I put dye in. You can also use petroleum jelly to separate what you want to dye and what you don't, but it can get messy. Wash each color out separately as best you can, keeping them away from each other for the first few washes.
Brook, I will get you those pictures. Just need bleach now....
I would seperate my pieces and put them in a ponytail and then carefuly dye them and wrap them in tinfoil.
It's really easy to do. I have pink and purple hair so I do it all the time. All you do is separate the hair so that you can dye the sections one at a time. Don't ever dye two different shades at the same time, otherwise the colours will mix. I usually do my purple part first which is just my fringe, then after I've washed the dye out and dried it, I do the pink. Just tie the hair you're not busy with up in a ponytail while doing the rest. Hope this helps =]
Thanks rawr, you've been a big help recently regarding my hair.
So, my other question being how do you 'change' a colour?
Say you have pink and you want to change it to blue, do you just bleach over the pink?
That's what i'm guessing but I could be wrong....
Rather don´t bleach if you have a bright colour and wanna change it, it could go horribly wrong. Rather use a blonde highlighting kit or a type of blonde enhancing creme (Garnier has one that works really well). Or you just let it wash out almost completely, then dye over it. I normally just let it wash out until it´s basically just my blonde left, then dye over it. It´s worked every time for me.
Thanks rawr, I'm pretty new to this hair dying stuff. The only time i've ever dyed my hair before was this sort of watermelon colour (it did not suit me at all but I thought is was great at the time.... lol)
I will post pictures when I (eventually) get it done.
