pre-lightening hairrr... - April 27th 2011, 06:02 PM

I dyed my hair about a month ago and it was sposed to be quite red, but it ended up going really dark and kind of purplish. I want to get it to red, so would it work if I used a pre-lightener before the red dye?

What colour is your natural hair? Sometimes if your hair is dark then red hair dye won't work very well and won't be bright.

The lighter your hair is the brighter the dye will be so yes using a pre-lightener would make it go redder.

However, don't lighten and dye in the same day if you can avoid it. When I went red I bleached my hair the night before, put lots of conditioner in my hair afterwards and left that for about an hour and then the next day I did the red so I wasn't damaging my hair too much. Also, if your hair is thin or already damaged at all then you might want to get it done professionally in order to avoid any mishaps.

Also, there is a specific hair dye for dark hair. It's one of the live ones and they have a red shade so perhaps see if that works any better.

Take care and I hope the red looks good

My hair is kind of mid brown naturally. I've coloured it red before and it worked fine, I prob just picked up the wrong dye last time I did it.

So its okay to use a pre-lightener on already coloured hair?
