So I bleached my hair,but it was left kind of yellow looking, I was trying to reach a lighter color so that I can dye my hair blue with Manic Panics Blue Moon, and it did not work because my hair came out greenish when I put the blue over my bleached hair. So I removed the green(left with the same bleached yellow) But I was told to try to apply some platinum hair dye on top of my bleached hair. Will that work?
Box dye is not very effective in lightening the hair. To lighten the hair to the proper level 20 volume bleach is more effective.
A short story and tried to lighten my hair from medium brown to golden brown with a box dye. On the box had picture of medium brown hair and end result was light gold blonde hair. On dark blonde hair had end result of light beige blonde hair. The box dye was labeled ultra light beige blonde. This was perfect and exactly what I wanted. This was also my first time dying hair ever. I applied the dye and waited the required 30 minutes. After rinsing the dye and looking at my hair I was shocked. My hair was a reddish-orange. I was disappointed.
Box dyes can be effective to cover over a light or medium shade of blue, red, green, or orange, if the box dye color is black.
This is my opinion and suggestions.
