Mint Green Tinge - after trying almost everything, box dye blonde?by rosiegloPosted 5 days, 6 hours ago
Hi guys, I'm trying to get those wretched tones of bluey green out of my hair that came with Directions Violet.
I had an XXL colour over the top of my diluted violet hair (raspberry rebel) and successfully managed to remove all but one or two faded patches of the pink with vitamin c treatments and a bleach bath. I did another vitamin c treatment and then singled out the greeny bits and bleach bathed these again. It looks massively better but i still have some stubborn strands. It doesn't look awful but it's not favourable as ya know. I don't really want to be mucking around with pink dyes or red toners as it'll be far too fiddly since its not chunky bits of green, so my next thought is....(1)can i dye over it with a box dye blonde? I currently have 11.21 l'oréal preference (pic attached) sittin upstairs, would this likely lighten it out/fade it more/blend it? I could go the golden blonde route but just wondering if i can achieve some good results with equipment i already have. (2) would a tint work better? perhaps an XP100 one
I was going to attach a photo of what my hair looks like but it's night time and it isn't really translating on camera. I can add one tomorrow if necessary!
