Bleaching Question. - November 30th 2011, 01:04 AM

Okay, so last weekend I removed all the hair dye from my hair with a hair colour remover kit and now my hair kinda strawberry blonde with a few blonde patches.

This is me and what my hair looks like :

So basically I want to even it out and I have blonde hair dye kit that's extra lightening and works on dark hair too.

I have a question about timings and stuff though. Usually on the box it says to put on the long bits and do the roots after because roots develop faster because of the heat from your head, yeah? BUT the long parts of my hair are significantly lighter than my roots so how do I go about applying the dye in this situation? I'm thinking maybe I should just do a little bit of my hair at a time to make sure it's all going the same(ish) colour, as you can see my hair's quite short so it shouldn't take too long to do.

I'm planning on doing this tomorrow so fast replies would be great!

Okay, so what I would recommend is testing this on a strand of your hair first to see how it turns out. Often times my hair has been different tones of light/dark and I went ahead and put the dye on all at once and it usually worked very well BUT this really only works if you are going darker.
What color blonde are you going? Is it darker or lighter than the color most of your hair is now? I think the best thing to do is put the dye on the darker parts of your hair first to help it all lighten to the same tone.

Yay, thanks Nicole for replying. It's lighter than my current hair.

I did do a strand test before but that was only done on the hair that is lighter so I have no idea what my roots are gonna do and if I were to try and get all of the dark parts then the blonde would definitely cover some of the already light parts. Awkward hair is awkward

I think spending a few hours doing it section by section would be best and then I can make sure that it's all the same colour.

This is probably a good idea. May take some time, but better safe then sorry! I'm sure it will turn out alright

How did it turn out?


I'm a vegetarian who loves cheese burgers
and a smoker who hates big companies.
What can I say? I'm complicated.



My PM box is always open. <3

Turquoisewill look lovely on you! Make sure to use a shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair so that it lasts longer
