Fading Purple Hairby cosmiccutie_Posted 5 years ago
So I dyed my hair two weeks ago. I had it bleached by my stylist, and it lifted to a pale yellow on my roots, bright yellow for a couple inches and then a red/orange on my ends. I put on a very deep purple over it, where some parts around my roots ended up almost magenta colored. My hair is a mix of pink hues, and dark purple.
Currently trying to figure out what color it will fade to, and if it is worth trying to fade or if I should just hold out on it. I have another hair appointment in 2 weeks to bleach again (trying to go platinum) and the last appointment I had was my first bleaching. I had black dye in my hair, so it wasn't virgin hair that was being bleached. Any help would be appreciated
My biggest concern is I don't want it fading to a straight pink color. My stylist told me it most likely will fade to a grey lavender, but so far it keeps looking pinker and pinker after every wash.

If it's fading pink, it's not going to go grey and/or lavender. Purples are either blue-based or pink-based, blue-based purples fade to grey or lavender and pink-based purples fade to mauve or pink. If you want it to fade to lavender, use a blue-based purple like Manic Panic Ultra Violet.
You can speed the fading with a clarifying shampoo or use one of the fading methods listed on this site (Katie's Direct Dye Fading Treatment works well) but since you have another appointment in 2 weeks, I'd just wait until then and let the stylist deal with it. :)

Suggest let the stylist deal with it.
As in the previous post, blue based purples will fade toward blue then maybe lavender than even some to a silver and pink based purples will fade to a lighter and lighter pink. This is because blue and red make purple.
Plus the base hair color before dying purple was not light enough. Mentioned was bright yellow and reddish orange on the ends. The base hair color will have an effect on the outcome of the dyed hair as well as how the hair will fade. In my opinion a lot of the red was left behind and would contribute to the hair fading pink. Also I do not know but maybe a pink based purple dye was used like Purple Haze by Manic Panic or any purple dye by Arctic Fox.
This is my opinion and suggestions.
