Pink hair - May 13th 2010, 02:18 AM

I always dyed my hair black or left it my natural dark brown hair, but now I feel anime cute! So how goes this hair? In other words how long does it last? How much does it usually cost at a salon? (do not trust myself with a hair color like this.)

If you use special effects its about 7-8 for a bottle (you'll need 2 bottles if you have long hair), I would get a hairdresser to bleach your hair and then the pink is easy (Y) I did mine a few weeks ago (about 8) and all that's happened is the roots have grown through so I need to re-bleach

Going from dark hair or dark dyed hair to bleach blonde will be difficult. You can really harm your hair. I would definitely speak to a hairdresser for advice rather than do it yourself to avoid the risk of losing your hair.

Only once your hair is a very light blonde colour, will the pink really show.

I agree with everyone about visiting the hair dresser to get it bleached first. I've done it myself before and although my hair's okay all I managed to do was get super white roots but the rest of it went orange.

I'm not sure how much bleach on it's own costs but if you have it bleached then dyed the pink it's usually around 80 and the pink that they do at the hair dressers will probably be better quality and last longer than you can get in the shops.

Well I was going to get it bleach after I grow out my black, it is almost back to brown than I will go to a hairdresser to bleach it (let it rest for a bit) and either go to hair salon to dye it pink or do it myself (I know it is more expensive but I am leaning more toward the salon)

See, I've done streaks in my hair purple before, and the underside of my sister's hair bright pink before.

The easiest way to do it at home is get yourself some bleach, the 40-Volume Bleach (can be found here), and I'd agree with the suggestion of Special Effects for afterwards. You want your hair almost white if you can achieve it (thus why I said the 40-Vol Bleach), then get the Special Effects dye (Here!) and leave it on, for like, hours.

With Special Effects dye, and the other crazy-coloured dyes, you can leave them on overnight if you wish, since they're usually made of natural products, with little to no chemicals. I've tried Manic Panic, Directions, and Special Effects, and Manic Panic lasted less than a week, Directions only a couple weeks, Special Effects about a month. My sister's pink lasted her like, 2 months with pretty much no fading, and that was Special Effects as well.

Its pretty simple to do at home. I even did my own streaks, and did my sister's hair, so most you'd need is a friend to make sure you get every part of your hair, I guess.

Just to let you know, Salon results aren't much different, and definitely more costly.
