Questions about dyeing hair - June 16th 2013, 07:40 PM

I really want to dye my hair sometime in the near future. I want to dye it bright, but the problem is I have dark hair (it's a really dark brown colour) and obviously bleaching could most likely ruin my hair. I do have an idea about what colours
Blue and Black, but it's a bright blue
Then a kinda platinum blonde colour? (Type in Jenna McDougall on google images like that colour)
Like Hayley Williams hair in the misery business video and the that's what you gets video
And maybe black and red

So any idea on how I could get my hair these colours without bleaching also what hairstyle will look good with them (I haw fairly short to medium length hair it's just below my shoulder)
This must have made no esense... but anyways... Thanks!

The best way to do it would be to bleach it, though it can cause some damage to your hair, it doesn't usually do it the first time. I've had to bleach my hair a few times, and my hair is still perfectly healthy. You can either go to the hair salon and get it professionally done, or just by a box of hair bleach, that's what I do.

It's really hard to dye dark hair without bleaching it!

all i want is a place to call my own and

This isn't really related to your specific question, but I just wanted to let you know- red hair dye washes out very quickly and easily. Something you could maybe do if you have the type of hair that has to get washed every day is to wear a shower cap in the shower, and then before or after your shower, use dry shampoo on your hair- you spray it in your hair, let it sit for a few minutes, and then brush it out. It'll make your hair look less greasy. I'm pretty sure dry shampoo is safe for color treated hair, but look into that if you plan on doing that! After you dye your hair, of course get shampoo/conditioner that's safe to use on color-treated hair.

I consider myself a bit of an expert on hair dying so I hope I can help you out.

Long story short if you want the bright colours to show up well then you will have to bleach it. As long as your hair is in good condition before you bleach it then the damage it does shouldn't be obvious and then just use one of those nourishing hair masks or just leave conditioner on for about half an hour afterwards to make sure it hasn't dried out too much.

Another way to reduce damage while bleaching is to bleach bathe your hair. Basically you mix the bleach with some shampoo and put that on your hair. It's not as fast as bleaching on its own, it's intended to be a process that you do over time to achieve the light hair that you want. Here's a link to some instructions about bleach bathing - http://haircrazy.info/beginner-guides/bleach-bathing/

As someone else already mentioned if you got the bleaching and dying done at a hair salon then this would also reduce the damage done by bleaching as the hair stylists would be using (I assume) higher quality stuff.

I hope this helped!
