Need help with pravana silverPosted 2 years, 3 months ago
I everyone I'm new here. I started bleaching my hair around December, I had dark brown hair and I want to achieve a nice ash blond/white. Last week I went to the salon again to bleach my ends because they were still very brassy, for some reason they are very hard to lift. Anyway I got out with a nice blond and the hair was a bit more uniform, but it was still too warm for my liking. Yesterday I decided to tone it at home with pravana silver. I washed my hair with loreal purple shampoo and left it on for 15 minutes. Then I diluted pravana silver with conditioner 1:1. This is where my problems started. First I didn't apply it very evenly, most of the hair is ash blond and the rest is grey, especially on the top, I don't dislike the colors but not like this, my hair is a mess lol. Now idk if I should try to fade the grey or dye the blond, I'm not even sure if I can dye the blond, its probably too dark, so I may try some clarifying shampoo. The weird thing though, and I have no idea how this happened... I have one cm of regrowth and it turned golden / orange. I never heard this happen to anyone, I didn't use any bleach, I don't understand how conditioner + hair dye can lift my hair?! I tried googling it but nothing comes up. What do you guys think? Is this even possible? Will I get back to my brown roots if I use clarifying shampoo? This is really weird. I really shouldn't mess with my hair at night xD

I think the easiest thing would be to wash out the silver and then reassess from there. Do a few strand tests to see whether applying the dye more evenly gives better results or whether the ends are still too dark for silver.
As for the roots, that is weird Pravana Vivids can't lighten your hair, neither can shampoo. The only thing I can think of is that sometimes freshly dyed hair can reflect some odd colours. For example, Special Effects Blue Velvet, which is a really dark blue often has a red sheen when recently applied. It's a bit like how black biro sometimes reflects red on a dark surface. Unless it was something like that causing it to look lighter? Did the hairdresser do anything to your roots that may have caused it?
