How to get hair from platinum to a realistic golden blonde?by peachychouPosted 1 week, 4 days ago
Hi all, I bleached my hair white/platinum earlier this year and it doesn't suit me at all. It's damaged and porous now.
I really want a nice natural golden blonde/light golden brown color, but everytime I use dyes in that color, the pigments go weird and I'm usually left with a weird patchy red or muddy greenish grey.
No matter how rich or multi-tonal or natural the dye is supposed to look, it comes out almost as primary colors and looks like a 5 year old dyed it with a bunch of mixed up food coloring.
I went to the hairdresser and she put a light brown over my white bleached hair, and it went a weird grey tone as she never filled my hair in beforehand.
I know I need to fill my hair, but I don't want it to be orange (just yellow/light gold) so I'm not sure what to use. Would a protein filler help me get a richer more natural looking blonde? I just want my hair to look like it's naturally blonde but I'm worried I ruined it permanently. Has anyone successfully gone to a golden blonde from platinum?

Hard for myself to completely understand if the third picture is the current hair color and assuming this is so. In my humble opinion, I think the mix of gray and green is pretty and nice. Because with my eyes I see a lot of green and do not know if a semi-permanent or permanent dye was used. If a permanent dye was used might try a color remover. Color removers help to reduce the color molecule of permanent dyes so the color is able to be rinsed from the hair. However any color remover need to rinse out thoroughly at least twice and wash the hair at least twice. This multiple thoroughly rinsing the hair and washing the hair helps to ensure the reduced color molecules are removed form the hair. If bleach is applied and the reduced color molecules were not all removed form the hair, the color will come back.
Since the hair is green/gray suggest applying 20 volume bleach to a very small section of the hair as a strand test. Then check the very small section of bleached hair over time to see how long to leave the 20 volume bleach on the hair to get to a gold blonde.
Myself have been successful with a permanent dye changing my hair from white to a gold blonde without a filler. Based on past experience going from white hair to a medium brown or even a gold blonde to a medium brown would require a filler.
Also been successful with a lot of white conditioner adding in a little amount of yellow semi-permanent dye changing the hair from white to yellowish or goldish. The gold blonde picture I see a lot more light orange then gold/yellow. I would suggest mixing a little orange with a lot of conditioner. Then apply the mixture to a very small section of white hair. Then review the results over time.
Myself have been white haired for over 20 years now. White hair may not be for everybody as indicated.
Good luck getting the results you would like. These are my suggestions and opinions based on over 35 years of non-professional experience.
