permanent hair dye over blue/green hairby lavender07Posted 2 weeks, 3 days ago
My hairdresser bleached my virgin black hair and coloured it with arctic fox Poseidon but it faded into this mixture of mint green, swampy green and blue. It's damaged and dry but I'm planning on using Olaplex No3. I dyed it on March 2nd week and I'm planning to dye it back again on June end with Keune Tinta 6.46 or 6.5
Will my hair hold the colour since it's bleached? Or will it stay because I will be repairing my hair with Olaplex? I don't mind if it fades to a copper/brown/red as long as the green doesn't come back again.

Permanent dyes do work fine over bleached hair, but it's usually best to strand test because they tend to be formulated to assume a certain level natural pigment in your hair, so the results don't always align with the swatches. I'd also try to limit the use of permanent dyes for future touch-ups just because it can accumulate more damage over time. Hair doesn't really heal like other parts of your body, so you want to limit how many times you expose the same section of hair to developer.
I think you should be okay with covering a mint green, but if you still have lingering darker blue it's a bit hard to tell the outcome. I'm surprised that 6.5 looks significantly darker than the other two since they should all be around the same depth (level 6) just different undertones. It's hard to say without a photo of your hair, but obviously the darker tone will help cover the blues and greens more cleanly, though they might still show through as it fades down. A strand test will tell you for sure and if you see that it doesn't have enough coverege, you might want to use a semi-permanent dye (no developer) just to layer over your current hair first before adding the permanent dye on top to hopefully reduce the green as it fades.

Hi! I only coloured my hair only back underneath. And here's a pic of it! And I'm planning to cut my hair to that length. Should I wait till Sept-Oct and let it grow a little more and colour it like an ombre. And If I'm going permanent black what should I do since black has more blue undertones?

Hm, that turquoise is a bit strong and probably won't be easy to cover completely without a filler layer of red. I'm not sure you can get as coppery as the swatches you showed, but you might still be able to do a warm brown like the 6.5 colour. If it's not bothering you now, I'd just wait until after your haircut if only the fact it'll save you on the amount of dye you have to buy. Most lines have something called Off Black, Brown Black or Natural Black that have less of a blue base which should help, though your green might still show through a bit as it fades.

There is no permanent hair dye. every hair dye disappears after a while.
Before you can change the world, you need to get your own head together.
