karlaelfxe asked: Hello, I inspired you to change the color of my hair to purple, i'm Mexican and i don't speak much english but I woul like to know How do you do to keep your hair as long and discolored? i know that you have a video on this but I would like to see me except a reply here.


Answer:

Quieres saber como puedo crecer el cabello largo y teñir lo tambien? Creo que mi dieta saludable ayuda la capacidad para crecer cabello fuerte que puede tomar tanto abuso jaja! Solo blanqueo el pelo una vez de cada mes (pero a veces cada 6 semanas… depende si lo necesita) y uso mucho acondicionador para reducir el daño.

Si es mas facil por ti, podemos hablar sobre los detalles en Español tambien :)

For Special Effects, I used to use rubbing alcohol to clean any mess that was left behind. It worked really well for me.

Anonymous asked: I'm not really sure the best way to search your faq so I'm sorry if this was already asked but what do you do to prevent your tub/sink from being stained?


Answer:

I don’t bother too much since Ion doesn’t stain as bad as Special Effects did but if I notice a spot, I’ve found the best way to remove stains isn’t bathroom cleaners, it’s a diluted mixture of the bleach I use on my hair :) It’s meant to remove the dye anyway and it always cleans dye stains well for me. Though be careful before using a whole bunch of it, try a small amount to see how it reacts with the surface in question you’re trying to remove the stain from :)

Ah yeah my 'faq' is really just everything I’ve tagged here on tumblr as such so it’s not really searchable at the moment but I can try to add more categories in later. Though going to the tag and using ctrl+f might help find specific keywords.

bleusbites asked: hi :) i want to ask you a question my hair is dark brown and i would like to bleach it so i could dye it red so my question is. do you have any advice on how to do it and how could i also bleach the sides of my hair since im a guy i dont want to leave the sides out but i cant seem to find anything on how to bleach hair sides i would really appreciate your help and oh i love ur blog :D


Answer:

Bleaching the sides should be just like the rest of the hair, you just want to avoid getting the bleach really close to your scalp. If the sides are really short and you’d like to keep them that way, you’ll be bleaching/dyeing them pretty frequently, unfortunately. Once you’ve done an allover bleach, to protect the rest of your hair from becoming overprocessed, you can protect the rest/top of your hair with conditioner during the side-bleaching process :3 

xmelanchonix asked: I'm a bit worried about bleaching all of my hair because I have bleached it before. Is it safe to bleach it or would it ruin my hair? Also, are there any ways to make your hair easier to bleach without a person helping and to make your hair blonde instead of orange? (I have very thick dark hair and it is hard to reach the back sometimes.)


Answer:

Hmm it depends on how light you are trying to go and how recently it was last bleached but you can always put some conditioner on the parts of your hair you want to protect and do a test run on a small patch of hair that won’t be noticeable (like at the nape of your neck or under your ears) to see how it reacts and to get the timing down correctly. For the blonde vs orange tones it is hard to say without seeing your hair in real life but toners or purple dye in conditioner can help with the yellow tones.

I sometimes set up two mirrors, one in front of my head and one behind to double check if I got everything.

But here is a video of how I was able to do mine and the products I used :)

kikicontreras asked: Have you ever tried Directions hair dye? I have bleached white hair and I'd love to try their Alpine Green (which looks pretty dark) but I'm afraid it will look a bit pale with white hair underneath. What do you think? Would I apply it twice to be sure it looks right? I love your blog! :D <3


Answer:

Hmm I’ve not used Directions before but I find I get the most vibrant color with light hair so unless you are really diluting the dye with a lot of conditioner, it would probably work just fine :)

Anonymous asked: Hi! I have a quick question. I have this semi permenant very dark green hair dye like it looks black. I was wondering if i mix it with yellow would it lighten it up or should i try conditioner?


Answer:

Hmm adding yellow might make it really lime green while the conditioner would keep the hue the same but would make it less dark. You can always try both on a small patch of hair or a clipping after your next trim to see which is more what you are going for :)

Dyeing My Hair Bright Green and Blue

Back to bright hair! Got tired of pastels and wanted some bright summer colors :) I dyed it a bit brighter at first and it will be at what I really want in a week. I’m headed to the beach so I wanted it extra bright at first so the color won’t just wash away in the ocean. 

My How to Bleach Hair White video

Products used:

Aussie Moist Conditioner

Manic Panic Electric Lizard

Ion Color Brilliance Purple and Aqua

turning-to-madness asked: Hey so I might be dying my hair a bright color and I was wondering how you bleached and dyed your hair and keep it so healthy looking? Also what bleach product did you use? 😄


Answer:

I combine a bulk bleach powder, my current type being Clairol BW2 Powder Lightener , and developer like Wella Koleston Perfect Creme Developer 40 Vol and apply it as seen in this video I made :) 

As for keeping my hair healthy I avoid hot tools and use conditioner every time I shower though not always shampoo to keep the color from fading :3 I addressed some more specifics in hair care my video here :D Good luck!

delinquints asked: Hello! Im a guy with relatively short(ish) hair and I want to try two colors over the summer and im really nervous about it because I want to go lighter- I was wondering if you could get back to me and give me advice on bleaching and dyeing it? Thank you!


Answer:

Hello :D It depends on which colors you are looking for but I did a hair bleaching video here and I have a bunch of other hair dyeing and faq videos here for general info :)
