PASTEL MINT HAIR... HELP!Posted 1 month, 2 weeks ago
My hair was originally teal, I lightened it with bleach twice, getting it to this, now I've tried everything to remove it, ketchup, baking soda, vitamins, bleach, toning shampoo. Nothing is working. I have Light Ash Blonde 8A permanent dye and I am wondering if it will just be able to dye over it?

What brand was used to dye the hair Teal? I am shocked that some light green remains after two bleach applications. Please let us know so we v can avoid this brand and color in the future. Thank you.
If the dye is light blonde doubtful will cover over a light green. A light color usually does not cover over another light color. You could try a strand test on a small section of the light green hair to see the effect the light ash blonde dye would have.
Light Ash Blonde has green tones because ash color is green based. So with the Light Ash Blonde dye would be adding green tones to the hair when trying to remove green tones from the hair. A suggestion is to get a strawberry blonde dye instead. The red in the strawberry blonde could help to mask or hide the light green tones. This is because red is opposite green on the color wheel.
Best of luck. These are my suggestions and opinion.
I used Ion Azure mixed with Cyan and it was semi-permanent, the ash blonde is wella/color charm
also I am trying to grow out my hair and I am flat broke so I cant do the strand test, cant afford to buy more for a long time if anything goes wrong with the strand test.
thank you for the strawberry blonde suggestion but I've tried using that coloron my hair before and it literally does nothing and I dont know why

I loved cyan when I used it. I didn't have as much trouble removing it as I had anticipated.

Thank you for sharing the product. Humbly suggest based on your own and my extensive experience with ION to not use ION again. ION is extremely difficult to fully remove. I have been where you are financially at least 6 times. When slightly above flat broke suggest liquid laundry detergent instead of shampoo. This works better than a clarifying shampoo but also makes the hair more dry. Using hot water to wash the hair helps to remove color. Cold water to wash the hair helps to keep color. In my opinion a good job has been so done to remove most of the ION.
Good luck. These are my suggestions and opinions.

For coverage options, I think you'd have to go darker to get better coverage, but if you want to stay blonde, that will obviously be difficult. I'm not sure anything will help with the staining except washing over time, since it seems like the colour is pretty deep under the surface, given the fact that bleach isn't helping. I find that there's not a lot you can do in the short term aside from going darker in these situations.

Can pink or red dye cancel this out? If yes, what would you suggest?

It may help a little, but the colour won't match the rest of your hair. It be somewhere in the grey/lavender/taupe family and you won't really be able to cover it up with blonde without it showing through.
