purple hair - April 11th 2011, 07:25 PM

So a few months back i decided i'd dye my hair, bright purple.
The dye was a semi permanet one and promise to be out of my hair in 10-20 washes, nearly 3 months on and its still in my hair and it wont bugger off. It's fading but very slowly.

Iget married in 6 months i cant have purple hair lol
i've tryed loads of things, washing powder, head and shoulders, cheap shampoo, dish soap, shower gel and it still wont move.

please help i'm sick of looking like a beetroot

My friend had this trouble with her temporary dye. My suggestion would be to let it keep fading for now. If by the time it comes to getting married, it's still not faded, could you not dye it a different colour?

Go see a stylist, seriously. I've tried getting out colors and it's just a wreck. A stylist can help you get your hair back in shape and probably damage it much less than you would if you tried something else.

The only way my hairdresser could get it as is to strip the colour out, but I had alopeica a few years ago, and shes worried that if she strips it my hair will fall out, I'd rather have purple hair than no hair for the wedding lol

My cousin coloured her hair "temporarily" but found that the colour wouldn't come off. If you can, if your stylist says it's possible. Why don't you use another colour on top, that will mask the purple?

I think, like others have suggested, the best thing to do would be to cover it up with another dye. But be careful about which dye you use, as it can damage your hair if you dye it too often.

I agree with the others, if you're in danger of having purple hair for your wedding, dye it again. While its not good for your hair to dye it often, try to find a shade as close as possible to your natural color, then wait for that to fade.

Good luck!

Go for a dye that doesn't contain peroxide, it will be less damaging when you cover up the purple.

Yup, they have temporary hair colours with no ammonia. I think all hair colours have peroxide, but the temporary ones have them in a very low quantity. Stuff like the L'Oreal casting creme gloss has no ammonia in it, and it's temporary. It covers up any other colour that you have coloured your hair with. It doesn't damage hair. My cousin has tried it, and it works real good. Just remember to choose a shade of colour close to the colour of your real hair, like the others have said.
