Hiya, So I've dyed the ends of my hair with Special Effects Deep Purple for about a year now and looking to change it up to red, but the colour is still pretty bright (about 5 months after last dye now) and I'm not sure it'll do what I want without bleaching. It's more of a pink/purple now but is it likely to go RED red if I just dye over? I'm in NZ at the moment so my options are directions/manic panic or Schwarzkopf (will the added bleach to the last help or hinder?) Any advice would be great, thanks!
I would strand test a more warm toned red like manic panic vampire, rock n roll, or special effects nucleur it should go to a red just fine
An orange-red should be fine over that base.
Thanks for this! Would you say directions "fire" would be a warm toned red? I've had issues with both directions and manic fading quickly before so I'll go for the cheaper option until I can get hold of special effects again.
yep fire looks pretty orangy to me
