I'm tired of redying my purple streaks all the time and I want to dye them with a more permanent, burgundy brown color for the winter. Does anyone know the best way to do this? It's bleached and then colored with Special Effects. Do I have to let it fade out to pink/blond before I color with regular drug store hair dye?
Things to fade it out:
- wash your hair more often... stop using conditioner if possible
- don't use any type of color protectant
- drench your hair in vinegar and let it sit for an hour or two... wash afterwards (doesnt do much)
- wash your hair with dish detergent (the powdery kind)... make sure to condition after this
I had special effects purple and did all of the stuff mentioned above. after, I dyed it a strawberry orange concoction that i made with a tube of red clairol color enhancer and a tube of clairol strawberry blonde. my hair turned out with different shades of orange and yellow (because I didnt bleach, but I did keep the color on 2+ hours), but overall it went through a dramatic change from dark purple to bright orange.
