Dying hair purple

StrictlylilbitStrictlylilbit Posts: 89Registered Users
My hairs currently a dark brownish red. It the result of bleaching my hair a light brownish red. Then using red semi permeant dye. That was a month or so ago. I really want my purple this summer but I'm not willingly to bleach my hair again. I've bleached twice already. My curl eventually start looking pretty again but it takes month. It just recently started feeling soft again.

    I might be able to help, but I'm confused about what you did. What did you mean when you said you beached your hair a light red? If you bleached, it would be a shade of gold/yellow depending on your starting color and the volume you used. So did you use a color to get your hair reddish brown, and then added the semi red dye for an extra pop? Also, was your hair color treated before you went red? There are ways of getting changing your color without bleaching, but it depends on what you've already done to your hair. If I can figure that out, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

    well, if your skintone is very very fair then purple would be bearable for 2-3 days

    ColoredBeautiful on YouTube is a gorgeous brown skinned woman and her purple hair is fabulous! So while ones skintone may come into play with the shade of purple that is best suited for you, the range of skin tones that can rock purple hair really is not limited to the fairest.
