laurelindoren asked: Hey. I was wondering if you could point me to how to dye my hair so that it fades from my natural hair color to a different color. I googled it and what showed up seemed like it seem, to me, like there would be a hard line between the two colors where as I would like it to fade somewhat.


Answer:

If you leave the bleach on the tips for a while before adding more bleach where the first bleach application stops and where your natural hair begins, and then wash them out at the same time, it should give more of a gradient style than a harsh line :)

sixtysixsix asked: Is there any hair masque products or any kind of products you can recommend for bleached hair/dyed hair to nourish it? Or make it healthy? I'm thinking of dying my hair a dark green and I worried about the hair damage. I know it's inevitable but I was just wondering what you do about that. I looked at some of your videos they helped a lot ! :-)


Answer:

Hi :D Glad they could help!

Hmm I don’t use many products in my hair but recently got a sample of Lush’s R & B hair treatment recently and liked the results :D (Though it’s rather heavy so I only used it on my ends) Luckily since you are going dark green, you shouldn’t need to bleach your hair very much so the damage will be minimal compared to attempting a pastel color :)

Anonymous asked: Hello! I'm re-dying my hair, and i want to mix the dye with conditioner but some people has told me that I shouldn't because the conditioner does not leave the dye attaches to your hair... But you do it all the time and it works for you, and for a lot of people I have seen on youtube, so what should I do? Do I have to use some conditioner in specific? Ps. Sorry for my terrible english, hope you understand what im trying to say :)


Answer:

The conditioner just dilutes it really and I find allows for a more even application since some of the dyes themselves can be very thick and hard to apply otherwise. Plus it makes the hair feel very soft after bleaching :) I’ve used a whole bunch of conditioners in the past but Aussie Moist works best for me and it’s cheap :D

Anonymous asked: Hiya, got a few questions about how you dye your hair. Do you use mixing bowls when you're mixing the dye? Do you wash your gloves every new color, put new ones on or just keep using them? Do you always dye over the existing color or do you remove the color first?


Answer:

Hi! 

Sometimes I use bowls if I am mixing a lot of color to help keep it consistent. When applying right from the tube/bottle I don’t bother with a bowl. Unless I’m going from pink to green or something the colors are usually close enough that I don’t need to change gloves. I often end up bleaching my roots before dyeing so that can remove a good amount of color, but I’m not completely stripping my hair before dyeing :)

yayforturtles asked: how would you fix super patchy bleached hair? mine is different shades of ginger and blonde. and now the roots are lighter than the gingery rest of my hair?? :( any suggestions? i have school on tuesday. im hoping to get it pretty light so i can dye it green by next wednesday. but i really just want it to be acceptable by tuesday :(


Answer:

Hmm it’s hard to say too much without seeing your hair/its texture but as long as the gingery parts aren’t too dark, you might benefit from toning it with a silver shampoo or purple dye mixed with conditioner. Depending on how long ago it was bleached, you could also cover the lighter bleached bits with conditioner and try to lift the darker patches with some bleach, but you’d have to be pretty careful if taking that route. If the ginger parts were from a previous dye job, you may be able to remove them with Color Oops. Otherwise you might just have to go for a really dark forest green to cover any patches and wait until your hair is ready to try bleaching it again :c Good luck!

Anonymous asked: i'm gonna dye my hair for the first time and i wanted to know which products you recommend like what kind of hair dye, bleach and stuff


Answer:

Hi! I use the same bleach powder/developer combo every time but the dye brands depend on color :) Not sure which colors you are after, but here is my Hair Bleaching video tutorial and a few different dye videos: 

Dyeing My Hair Silver, Blue, and Purple

Dyeing My Hair Mint Green Turquoise

Dyeing My Hair Bright Green and Blue

Anonymous asked: hello, how often do you take care of your roots? as your hair always looks fresh from the top down. thanks in advance :)


Answer:

i do them every 4-6 weeks :3 i tend to let them go longer if i have a dark or bright color close to my root since it isn’t as noticeable as when I am all pastel :)

Anonymous asked: Hi dear! I recently came back to my natural hair colour, after bleaching and dyeing it for a few years. But I found a tube of pink hair dye that I'm not going to use anymore, and I don't know what to do with it! It's not new, so I can't sell it, but I don't want to waste it. Any ideas? It's Special Effects' Atomic Pink, by the way.


Answer:

Hello :D Atomic pink is an awesome color and I’m pretty sure it glows under black light! It has always stained my clothes so maybe you could use it to make a black light-reactive tie dye shirt or skirt :D

Anonymous asked: Hi! I hope you dont mind me pestering you- but.. For along time now ive wanted to dye my hair lavender but i dont know what products to use! If you could give any recommendations that would be a big help! <3 thanks


Answer:

Hi! After bleaching, Ion’s Color Briliance Lavender is a great dye to use :D Otherwise a little of their purple dye diluted in a whooole lot of conditioner will give the same effect :) If you have long hair, I would recommend buying 2 of the lavender dye tubes but if you’re going the diluted purple route, one should be more than enough :3

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 :)
