Question Advice on hair dye? - July 13th 2013, 06:22 AM

Ayo!
Ok so I got this splat purple hair dye because I really want my hair to be a different color... the only thing I'm worried about is the actual...like dying part. Reviews say that it's good hair dye, but I've never bleached my hair before...and it says it comes with bleach? I haven't opened to box yet in case I need to return it... but ya, a little worried about using it, anyone ever use it before and have advice? Right now my hair is dyed black, I usually use Garnier and since the roots are turning my natural dirty blonde I was hoping to dye my hair tomorrow but if it's really going to harm my hair then I won't...sorry, any advice? Oh and the box says "not intended for people under 16" but the youtube reviews I saw were with like...13 yr old girls, and I'm 15 so...

I don't know about Splat, Splat bleach, or purple hair dye. But black hair won't be lightened to a very light color, it will be an orangey yellow at most. Bleach is not a color, so when the purple fades the bleached hair will show up underneath and will continue to show up through any color you dye it until that hair is cut or trimmed off. I only say that because it's the most frustrating thing for me when dyeing my hair :P
If you use the bleach right and your hair is healthy you won't find too much damage. You may find some dead, split or dry ends, but as long as you continue to take care of your hair and you use the bleach right you won't have too much of a problem.
Good luck!

(I personally have never used Splat bleach but my sister has and she said it was good. She didn't have any problems with it.)

I've used Splat before and it doesn't come with that much bleach. I didn't have nearly enough to lighten all of my hair. Plus, if your hair is dyed black then you'll likely need to bleach it a couple of times to get it light enough where it isn't brassy. I highly recommend going to see a professional instead of trying to bleach you hair by yourself because it is very easy to cause a lot of damage to your hair.
Splat was a good hair dye, but I used their purple one and it turned my hair a dark blue. It did last a long time, though.

When I use Splat I don't even bleach my hair. I've done purple bangs, tips, and streaks, but I've never tried my whole head. My hair is dark brown.

I've never really used Splat, I was going to but I've heard some really bad stuff about that brand :P Something about poor color?

I've used splat. well I had dirty blonde hair and I didn't use bleach. It bled everytime I showered. the first time I used it, I did purple and I had to redo it, because it faded so much.
