i'm not worried YET, but might be in a few hours time.
Well, if you were to do it three times in a row over the course of one night it might, but otherwise - well, I haven't got a clue.
What are you doing to yourself?
but a lot of it's just gone orange (as you might be able to tell from my current facebook profile picture) and i'm not crazy about it so i'm going to keep bleaching it until it sorts itself out. YOU HEAR THAT, HAIR?
i'd go to a hairdressers if i were you.
i've talked to people who have done far worse things than me though and they've all been ok so i'm going to give it a couple more goes.
in answer to your question below: i've been using some kind of garnier pre-lightener so far, i also tried one that said NO PRE-LIGHTENER REQUIRED!! but obviously that was a big lie, so now i'm back on the proper stuff that's full of ammonia and makes your eyes run a bit. i'm not doing the roots anymore though so if anything falls out i'll still have my beautiful, blonde roots.
people's hair and scalps are completely different?
You do what you like love, just be warned that I've managed to colour my hair green and purple with bleaching mistakes over the years AND then had to pay for a hairdresser anyway because nothing else would fix it.
it'll end up going green and/or falling out.
The hairdresser can put a darker even tint over it to even it out a bit and stop it being a pukey colour (assuming it is), and then you can probs bleach it three months later.
DO NOT PUT A BROWN COLOUR ON OVER THE TOP. Otherwise you'll end up with a purple head, like I did.
also when will you be at the pub tomorrow?
3ish, maybe a bit later.
i've always wanted to bleach my hair but i'm worried about it looking bad and i think i'm too pale for it.
wasn't that it? pale isn't necessarily bad for blonde hair though, at all
(c) katti, 2008. is she still alive?
Any more than that and it leaves you a slaphead.
thanks, i feel like i know where i stand now marckee.
Patrick Stewart used to have a full head of hair until he tried to dye it blond for the fifth time.
Duncan Goodhew too. And Fabien Bartez.
and Helene's quite scary.
Good luck with that eh?
gosh I'm easily pleased
jesus. i look so scandinavian it's unreal
Stop asking two questions whiterussian.
also i'm pretty sure i was only asking one question
mine is dark brown and i bleached it white for about a year. when i did my roots i often had to do them twice so they weren't yellow. try and wait a couple of days before doing it again if you can. also, don't use hot oil on your hair, use a good conditioner instead. put conditioner on, wrap your head in clingfilm (it's a good look) and leave it for as long as poss.
i should probably add that a year of bleaching my hair totally fucked it. i'm dark again now but i still have loads of broken bits.
i prie myself on having lovely thick strong hair. i don't wanna fuck it up. maybe i'll just invest in a wig.
a friend tried this and ended up similarly carroty. However in the mean time she used temporary light pink dye over the top for a couple of weeks before trying again to give her hair a rest. Also gives the dark dye a bit more time too get the fook off your head.
i've got more bleach in my hair AS WE SPEAK
Please stop after this..wtf is it actually doing to your scalp?!
Also; wondered why pregnant women aren't meant to dye their hair? Bit toxic...?hahahah
after tonight's bleaching it has now changed from carroty to peachy. success.
