Powerpuff_Nix's other (not listed) hair
Powerpuff_Nix — 15/9/2016
Apologies for the poor lighting but it was about 2am and I had a very sleepy other half snoozing in the backround. For anyone wondering how pale a base I managed to get before applying the purple, this is a pic I took after bleaching. It looks deceptively white blonde here because of the flash, but it was still very golden in places. And it's not perfectly even either. I find my hair has fewer red tones than i would expect for the level 2-3 dark brown that I naturally am. It doesnt lift to stark orange colour. It goes to light brown then, kind of a pale peachy salmon colour, before going yellow. Weird. I used Swarzkopf BlondMe Bleach with 20 volume developer and olaplex. I had also faded out the previous purple with a few rounds of anti dandruff shampoo and 1 round of Pro:Voke Extra strength colour remover before bleaching my roots. You might wonder why I bothered if I was just going to stick with purple but my previous purple was applied over a bright violet base which I wanted to strip out. It now has a much truer purple colour and should fade to a warmer pink shade, whereas before with the violet underneath, it would always fade to a very cool blue tone that I didn't love.
