Question My hair will NOT fade - November 2nd 2011, 02:57 AM

So back at the begining of September I bleached and died my hair using Twisted Teal from Raw. The bottle said it would last for four to six weeks and then it would slowly fade. Well, my hair has definately grown because my roots (dark blond) are clearly visible, but doesn't seem like the color has faded all that much. I mean, it HAS gotten a little lighter, but it's still obviously blue. My 21st birthday is coming up and my girlfriend, some friends, and I are all going out to the club and I want die my hair a nice dark chocolate brown color.
A friend said I should bleach it and then die it. I'm really worried about messing up the health of my hair by all this dying and bleaching. After nearly two months do you think it'd be ok for me to just dye it, or should o bleach it first?

I think it's best if you do this professionally. In order for the true dark chocolate brown color to come out, your hair would need to be bleached and then dyed. If you don't, the new hair color might not take and will wash out after a few washes. This happened when I tried to die my hair red myself; when I had it done professionally, it turned out much better than what I could do myself.

I would try a color stripper, such as Color Oops. I used it on my black hair before dying it red (pics on my profile if you wish) and it worked very well and it was less damaging than bleach is.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I agree with Nicole about the colour stripper, I used it to get the red colour out of my hair and it works really well

Most colour strippers don't strip bleach so your hair will probably be still the colour of the bleach after you strip it so you can just put the brown dye on straight after. The stripper I had said you could dye straight afterwards but make sure you check on the box before you do this
