Can't get the green out!by Greenenvy86Posted 5 years, 9 months ago
Hi everyone, a little history on the subject - I am a natural strawberry blonde, I always wanted to dye my hair turquoise and had a job that allowed me to do this so I bleached my hair using Bblonde and vol 30 cream, it went the perfect blonde. I first dyed it half violet half lagoon blue by directions, I had this for a while then as it started to fade I went over the violet with turquoise, I achieved the perfect shade and was vibrant as I had wanted, only bleaching my roots when they started to grow (I only did this once). I have started to miss my ginger hair so I did a lot of research online and started a vitamin c powder fading treatment on the blue, along with washing it with head and shoulders, I did the vitamin c treatment about 4 times but it started to irritate my skin and it just wasn't getting the blue out, so I moved on to bleach bathing it. I did this twice, using 30 vol developer and a normal cheap shampoo, it got the blue to a mint green, then the final fading method, I mixed head and shoulders, olive oil, baking soda and vitamin c powder, I was very pleased with how it turned out as I had patches of yellowy green and very very pale green, then I decided now was the perfect base for dying it back ginger.
I used loreal ferrier copper mango intense, I presumed it would take it to a brownish copper because it was a green base. it seemed to have worked until I dried it, it is now ginger but with green 'highlights' if you will. Any suggestions please?

I should add that I did the fading treatments over 2 months, I've made it sound like I did all of it and bleaching in a day! So just so you are all aware, as I didn't mention this. I left enough time between treatments to care for my hair and moisturise it.

A picture would help. Guessing could counter the green and if not opposed to more red, then suggest a red semi-permanent natural color. Red and green are opposite the color wheel. One color opposite the color wheel can mask or hide the other. These are my suggestions.
