Tried to bleach my hair from coral.Posted 5 years, 5 months ago
I had darkish coral hair. I wanted to get as close to my original blonde base as possible. I tried using various methods of color removal and they just did not work. So, I bleached my hair 3 times in short 15-30 minute sessions over the course of two days. The result is a gold, strawberry blonde, platinum mess.
I originally wanted to get my hair light enough for pastel shades. But I think that may be out of the question now because I am unwilling to bleach my hair anymore.
My question is, what can I do outside of bleaching to get a more even color? I have a lavender dye from adore that I planned on using. I still want to use it but I don't know if my hair is light enough and I am afraid some parts might turn muddy/brown.
I do not want to put any dark colors in my hair. My natural hair dark and I am tired of it. I want my hair to pop.
I have posted a few pictures taken in various lighting. My hair is a little lighter in real life. For some reason the camera on my phone likes to automatically add warm tones to my photos.
For some reason the platinum parts of my hair aren't being picked up in the photos but it is there.

adore lavender is a pretty weak color, I'd strand test and see over the darkest bits, but if you wanted a warmer purple, that could work, I would mix something like adore violet gem, or arctic fox violet dream with conditioner and you could get a light pinky lavender with that base, or baby pink, I just don't think pastel cool tones will work, but light warmer shades like pink and pinky lavender could
I did two strand tests. The strand with the lightest blonde held but the darker bits did not take well to the dye at all. I'll try your suggestion. I'll post pics when I'm done.
Went with blue instead. Used sparks electric blue. I put the dye straight on my hair near the roots and diluted with conditioner further down. I'm pretty pleased with the results.
