Removing Demi permanent dye.by MoonBunniPosted 2 years, 2 months ago
So 6 weeks ago I went and had my platinum blonde covered with a demi permanent dye. I went with a light brown to match my natural color.
Well I'm wanting to go back to a blonde-ish color so I can use some Arctic Fox Purple Rain and Poseidon over it.
I went to my salon where I only get trims and olaplex...they never do my color except for the Demi brown. I asked the lady at the desk if they could use a color remover on it and get it a little lighter so I can color it again. She basically said that there is nothing they can do and using a color stripper wont work but she could put chunks of high lights underneath and color those purple for me.. I've been doing my own hair for about 11yrs with no issues... No extreme damage or anything.. Just the usual split ends film w bleach and heat styling.. So I feel like what she said just isn't right and doesn't make sense.
I have never dealt with Demi dye... But is there a way to safely lighten and or remove the color at home or in a salon?

ok yes color remover should work if the demi was mixed with peroxide just get one an only color fix from sallys, and use that, color stripper is bleach and thats why she wouldn't put it on your bleached hair, but color remover just shrinks the color molucules and lets them wash out, alot of pros have no clue how they work so i guess thats what happened, but yep one and only color fix or color oops follow the directions and make sure to not compromise on washing it out and you should have success

Ahh haa! I wondered if she didn't understand me or if I said something wrong. I'm gonna say both lol. Thank you for your reply! I'm gonna be trying one of those ????
