Hello ! I need advice on my blue hair again. My base is a white blonde shade even though it's a bit darker in the ends (it has been bleached 100 times and my hair is naturally blonde so I don't understand why but ok.) My goal is this bright, but not dark anime character blue lol. (look at inspiration pics. or are all of these photoshopped?) I have a mix of directions lagoon blue and turqouise diluted in my hair right now. It kind of looks like this but it's definitly not as vibrant and more green and darker in some places. Is there any trick to get the color super vibrant (leaving in over night etc.) ? It seems like my hair only get's vibrant when dyed darker. I don't want to go darker though. I'm scared it won't come out anymore.
The hair color before dying has an strong influence on the resulting hair color. Since trying to get rid of the green I would in the future avoid adding any turquoise. On my white hair Lagoon Blue resulted in the colors of the achieved the colors in the first picture.
The more green spots may want to try a purple based shampoo to see if able to remove any yellow. Yellow and blue make green. However, best suggestion is next time have white hair or very light beige blonde a Level 10, then apply only Lagoon Blue.
These are my suggestions and opinion.
Thank you for your help! My hair is a level 10 so that should not be a problem. However last time I used Lagoon Blue only it turned greyish in my hair. Did you apply it diluted? And how long do you keep your dye in? Maybe I didn't leave it in long enough...
I have applied Lagoon Blue diluted with conditioner and undiluted on my white hair. I leave the color on for at least 30 minutes. Some colleagues on this forum leave it on for an hour to two hours. Really depends on yourself. Humbly suggest try leaving on the hair longer and checking a strand every so often to monitor the results. Leaning new ideas and results through experience can be fun.
Diluting semi-permanent dye with conditioner will lighten the color and decrease the time the color will last on the hair usually. Darker colors will last longer because there is more pigment.
Suggest may want to try other brands like RAW, Pravana, Joico, Sparks, Splat, Manic Panic, Manic Panic Amplified, Fudge Paint Box, Urban Shock, Special Effects, Adore, etc.
Best of luck! These are my suggestions and humble opinion.
