Pink to blonde or brown?by wannabblondePosted 4 years, 2 months ago
Hi everyone! Looking for a bit of advice; I had hair that was blonde, then dyed dark brown, then purple (Splat direct dye for brunettes). Then I used a color remover and bleached it twice. It is now blonde at the roots and inexplicably hot pink. I do not want to have pink hair right now. What should I do? Is it worth it to save money going to a salon IF they will bleach it further to MAYBE be blonde again or should I put a copper/auburn brown color over the blonde and pink? If so, should I do anything, in particular, to make the color more even, like apply it to the blonde roots longer maybe? Thanks!

Ok splat is very difficult to remove from hair especially the purples and reds, i uesd the midnight ruby and it took awhile to remove alot of it but i was able to remove alot of it from my hair. Its gonna sound odd at first but it works for some reason... equal parts warm water and white distilled vinegar with a table spoon of shampoo or dish soap enough to cover your all your hair scrub that around for about 5minutes then rinse with warm water its a slow process but after a few times of that you will see a difference also a something to try is equal parts dandruff shampoo and baking soda on wet hair for 30 minutes, rinse and wash hair at least 3 times your hair will feel very dry after that so deep conditioning would be advised these methods will not damage hair You could also use vitamin-C power instead of baking soda but they work about the same for splat hair dye I hope that this gets good results for you remember that theses methods may take a few applications for complete removal of dye and there is no guarantee that they can completely remove all the color just most of it If one or all of these methods dont work well enough try going to your local beauty supply store and ask then if they have non-oxidation hair color removers these are used for direct dyes like Splat i know that the brand Ion makes one that can be mixed with water and ot works pretty well and there are some other good ones that you can get online like joico intense color remover it works similarly to the other one but it might need devloper so go with your best judgment on how the current state of your hairs heath and best of luck to you :)

Bleach isn't particularly useful for removing darker dyed colour, just for lightening natural hair or getting the last tint of dye out. The pink will gradually fade with washing, but you'll probably end up with a stubborn tint that will have to be covered up or bleached again for full removal to blonde (if possible). However, I would not advise trying to rush the process by just bleaching again, as I don't think you'll get out much more colour and the damage is cannot be repair, though it can be managed until your hair grows out. Have a look at the article below for a number of strategies listed out in order of how harsh they are.
If you're needing a natural-ish colour in the short term, I'd go with a warm burgundy, which will have less of a sharp contrast over the blonde and the pink, though there will still be a noticeable shift.
