Faded Orange to Rose Gold?by vshollandPosted 10 months, 2 weeks ago
I've been dyeing my hair with Overtone Vibrant Orange for a couple of years now, and I'm thinking of going rose gold. Does anyone have tips on how I could lighten it or any advice on how well rose gold takes to hair with orange tones?

The lighting in your first photo is quite warm and very direct, but if it's accurate to the colour you have, I think you'd want to use a heavily diluted magenta dye like Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink mixed in with loads of conditioner. The second goal photo is probably easier to achieve than the first. Try some strand tests to determine how much conditioner to add, but I think you could get there over your current base.
If you want a more pastel shade, you'd definitely need to lighten. You should get good fading by just switching over to regular shampoo for a while to stock depositing colour, but you probably need to bleach to get a lighter base eventually. You generally want to fade down what you have first even if you're planning on bleaching, as it much easier to judge if you've gotten enough lift with less dye in your hair.
