So todays post is one I've been meaning to get done for awhile now. ... By awhile I mean .. since the end of October. I know, I know. I've been a slacker. :( Anyhoos.. I've gone and changed out the blue in my hair for a bright magenta and I just wanted to show you all the results. Back in March I did a Black & Blue post that describes how I dye my hair. Please refer to that post for the methods I use to dye. I will however list the products I've used for this application down below.
1 tint brush
1 tint bowl
3 pair gloves
1 RGC packette
1 packette Prism Lights blue lightener (bleach)
roughly 3.5 oz 40 Vol creme developer (peroxide) *please be aware anything stronger than 30 vol should typically NOT be used on the scalp
1 box Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color BL21 (Blue Black)
1 bottle SE Hair Dye Virgin Rose
|Blue tinted bleach w/ RG corrector and 40 Vol developer|
Just a note here on changing black dyes. The Feria I was using faded extraordinarily fast. Way quicker than the semi-perm blue dye, which is a shame. I went with Garnier this time after doing some research and this one seems to be holding up pretty good as it's been in now since October and has normal wear/minimal fading.
Ok so now onto the fun stuff.
|Before: Can you believe I did this in MARCH! :D LOVE that staying power! My black looks brown though. :(|
|Bleached out/ freshly dyed black. My bleach job was sloppy. I have some unevenness.. but its okay!|
