To add to the dark-to-white debate, I have found a MIRACLE product in Boots chemist (UK) called Pro-Voke, its a CHEAP (no more than £3 a bottle which lasts weeks) once a week shampoo treatment for silver, white, or bleached hair, with a violet pigment. It removes yellow/orange tones really effectively, especially when used more frequently than suggested. Just be careful cos overuse will turn your hair silver! (this is what I wanted!) xxx
To those who want to bleach their black hair without damage here's a tip. I'm Asian so I have naturally jet black hair. I bleached my hair two times. One of each week. And then use a blonde dye for the final week. I couldn't find 'purple shampoo' or toner in my country so I couldn't achieve a white (platinum) blonde look. The key here is patience and care. When you shampoo your hair, you need to condition your bleached hair since bleaching could be harsh. I hope I helped.
To the anon who wants white hair, please please please wait between bleaching sessions, I tried getting my dark brown hair to platinum in one sitting and the hair dresser had me there hours after closing, bleached it three times (it still wasn't the right color), my hair began to break/fall out, and my mid-back length hair turned into a bob because of it. Patience is the key to the "perfect" hairstyle.
If you want to go from colored dark hair to white hair (it won't work if your hair is not colored), you can use something that's called Color B4. It's great, it takes out a lot of pigments from your hair without damaging it at all, so a good idea is to use that 2-3 times before bleaching. I've been coloring my hair since I was like 13, and it's easily the best thing I've used to get lighter hair except Star Gazer-bleach. Unfortunately that bleach fucking kills your hair, so yeah, Color B4!
to the person who wants to go from dark brown to white: instead of bleaching your hair (and if you actually really want to do that, i would stick to bleaching it once a month or every few weeks.. the process is harsh..); use some hair dye colors that are lighter than your natural hair. start with a light brown, going to a dark blond, to a lighter blond, so on and so forth. eventually you'll have to bleach it, but this process is sooo much easier on your hair than just bleaching to death.
awesome : D which of the photos is it? I want to give you your credit : D I’m really bad at telling which one of the pictures that belongs to which people because some changed their hair since the picture got taken and they don’t look the same and blah blah blah : o
I'm the girl that wanted the rainnbow hair if you remember. I'm only 15. How old were you when you first dyed your hair? :)
oh, that’s awesome : D I was around 11 when I dyed my hair for the first time, but when it comes to “crazy” colours, I was 15 or 16 :’ ) Because, at that age I got into a hairstyle with wierd colours and such : D
LOL @ you acting all butt hurt over questions about a chick you didn't even know who walked into traffic without looking both ways. Natural selection at it's finest~
I haven’t actet all butt hurt, but maybe some of her friends are following this blog or ar hurt about what happened to her so I shouldn’t post anything about it. It’s awful but I have never said that I was butt hurt. LOL @ you for not having feelings and understanding for others.
And one more thing; this is a hair blog, not a blog where you talk about how people died. That was mainly because I didn’t want to answer more questions.
