For the longest time I've had nuclear red hair. The top was unbleached natural blonde with the red and the underside was bleached with a mix of nuclear red and napalm orange. It was nice, but being called Paramore got to be annoying. I let my hair fade for two months and then bought the bleach. All it took was 20 minutes and all the color had been pulled out of the top. The color came out fine but it was very yellow. I didn't dare to bleach the underside because it had previously been bleached. The day after bleaching I got my hair cut and the next day I used Special effects toner mixed with about two teaspoons of Redken deep conditioner. I wrapped my head with plastic and then a towel and relaxed for the next 5 hours.
I thought that the yellow would be pretty much gone, but my hair is still a bit too golden for my tastes. Vitamin C style. Do you have any suggestions on how to hide more of the yellow? I'd prefer not to use any permanent color to get a neutral blonde. But if so the stylist reported no damage. Surprise!
My other problem is the underside which still has a macaroni orange tint. (Which is brighter towards the roots.) What color would you suggest aside from any red? I have many of the different special effects colors, but I would prefer a blue, green or purple. It?s kind of ridiculous to ask for that because of the obvious murky results. But do you guys have any solutions?
Over all I'm not too upset with the results but I'd still prefer to remove the orange and tone the yellow.
Any help would be very very appreciated.
Before the bleach.
After the bleach without the toner. (My hair is just up in the back)
