Red to blonde.
2) Follow instructions on box.
that is it.
no, i don't.
wots diffikult aboot dat?!
bamos pretty much hit the nail on the head.
bleachin' n dyin' is well easy, especially if you gots the short hair.
it could go green!
This happened to me, ewww. I don't dye my hair anymore.
Seriously, go to the hairdressers.
used to bleach my hair in the hope that I would get it wrong, and it would go green. Never happened though.
I used to miss patches though, that was always fun. Home hair bleaching is good
that's what i did
then it would have been intentional. Intentional isn't rebellious, it's what was meant to happen. I was all about the unexpected, me
as simple as buying some Boots hair dye and following the instructions?
Whats this stuff about bleaching? Do I have to buy bleach aswell?
I then used it to dye my hair. Seriously, it's not rocket science.
I then learnt to experiment with it and let it go purple. Funtimes in the bamos barnet.
need a pre-lightner.
it will more than likely go very gingery, and maybe orange.
I would recommend popping into a hairdressers or something. Are you using a bleach or your average blonde hair dye?
What colour does hair go when it's stripped of colour? Invisible?
Okay, next question- Can I get bleach kit, toner and blonde hair dye all from my local Sainsburies?
they seem to be full of highlighting kits a la eva longoria...you'll probably need a boots
if you just by blond dye, i'm not sure it will 'take' to red hair very well.
I've got dark hair so to dye my hair i have to bleach it first.
is it red as in ginger or browny red?
if it's dark you'll need to bleach to get a good blonde, there are bleaching kits normally on the bottom shelf of boots hairdye section...you might need to do it twice if the first go goes orangey
if it's fairly light you can just use a blonde dye
if it's already dyed, you can get a remover from boots
if you have a lot of hair get someone to help as missing a patch on the back is a bit of a nightmare
dark ginger, rustytypebrownyred colour.
I'd rather i just didn't turn it really light shade of ginger.
Bleach hair to get blonde using bleaching kid.
Then use blonde dye.
Simple as that?
and do get good conditioner like wishpig said
dyed blonde is basically the worst thing ever.
You'd look like Charlize Theron x
you should try it, it would probably improve your hair x10000
And it's still okay.. I think it depends on what your hair's like naturally, mine was always really thick and stuff anyway...
My hair looks really frizzy and stuff when I just bleach it, but looks in great condition again if I put a dye on over it.
I use Stargazer dyes usually, as they do all sorts of colours.
If so, your hair will bleach to a yellowish blonde. It'll go white blonde eventually, but will make your hair brittle and snap easily.
It'll only go blonde with a regular hair dye if yor hair is light enough to start with. Normally on the side of the box they have little pictures of various shades of hair and the colour the dye will turn it. If that makes any sense.
Will have to make a trip to Boots though, shall let you know...
