So I have really dark brown hair that's almost 2 feet long. I want to bleach it and dye all of my hair, it either red or purple I have/will be using all "Manic Panic" products. The pictures down below is the colors I want to achieve in my hair, how and what do I need to bleach my hair to be that? I currently have a 40 Volume cream developer 118ml/4.o Fl. Oz. Is that enough to bleach my all of my hair or do I need more? Also should I bleach my hair again or the 40 volume be enough to make it not orange? And any tips to not ruin my long hair?
for the red its ok if the hair is ginger that is a dark bright red, and will look amazing over and orangey base, for the purple you will need a yellow blonde with no orange i would personally not use fourty i would use 2o vol and a good bleach in two stages. so start with a strand test to see the amount of lift you need, I personally have short hair so I can't help on an estimate for how much you need
Also suggest do not use 40 volume bleach. One easier chance of getting damage and extremely strong. Never put 30 volume or 40 volume bleach by the scalp. Suggest 20 volume bleach in two separate applications, Suggest three to four weeks between bleach applications.
The color for medium purple a gold blonde or lighter. The color for red a dark blonde.
The pictures look like they kept their original color and added many highlights the colored those red or purple.
These are my suggestions.
I'm not sure where you live but Ive had a red something like the pic above and I used Loreal HiLift Color. I didn't have to bleach at all. You are only supposed to use on DARK hair. Not sure how long it lasts because I was quick to do something else back then lol.
