putting demi permanent over semi and fadingby BridgetSPosted 6 months, 2 weeks ago
My daughter was a platinum blonde but enjoys playing with direct dyes (Eugene Perma professional Blush Flashy Mix and Blush Satine). She went from a faded light violet to a dark blonde for which she used dark blonde from the same line and Igora Expert Mousse 8.77 to add some warmth. After 2 washes she added some more 8.77 to get a more coppery color, actually very pretty, as there are still some violet hues.
As she would like to experiment being darker, I suggested that we try some Wella Colour Touch that I have, i.e. a mix of 7.0 and 8.38 and 10 volume developper.
I know the direct dyes we use fade quite well, so she will be able to get her platinum back. But if I use Color Touch over it, will it still fade nicely or is there a chance it could stain the hair? I would like to avoid having to use a color remover again. I know the per se, on bleached hair, colour touch always fades, just not as fast as direct dyes. any advice welcome!

That's risky. It surely will fade faster then if it was put on undyed hair, though a bit of hue will stay for a longer term.

hm thanks, I already used a color remover on he hair 6 months ago after an alkaline demi, which stains the hair more than an acidic demi. I hope I can avoir using one again (and some spot bleating as well was necessary). anyway, in 2 days she might want something else!
