Since there seems to be a ton of discussion about it, i've given it's very own thread! Also I want to dye my hair, but i'm a bit of a wuss, and i have no idea what colour would suit me. Also want my hair cut, it's currently medium brownish colour, and just past my shoulders. I'm thinking on the lines of a total image re haul, so maybe something short and punky... Anyhoo, whaddya think (dying your hair is just another craft right?)
ooh and one other thing, i'm being home schooled this year, so school rules are no prob (whooooo!!)

short and punky is good. tons of choppy layers are prettyful. get a temporary dye first time to make sure you like the colour. before commiting to bleaching (eep [bad experience])

Here is my story and hopefully you all learn from it:

I started dying my hair in about 8th grad. I wanted ard brown (my hair is naturally medium brown) but it came out purple. I like it though and did it again (of course a non-permanent). I've dyed it many times since. So last year I decided to go black for something differant. My friend always dyes my hair (did it all the times before) so i let her again. She only did half my head before the dye ran out so she ran back out to ge more. By the end of it, half of it was darker than the other but not that noticable. Then the nonpermanent dye wouldn't wash out. Slowly you could tell the difference in color more and more (half darker than the othr half).  I decided to dye it to my orginal color again (sick of the black), I already had about and inch and a half of roots anyways. So I dyed it my brown again and that same night put some fushia strands in the front. The brown didn't stick to my hair except the roots, turning it blonde. The fushia only stuck to the roots and turned into orange.

So now my hair is black, and inch and a half of blonde, about two inches of my original brown and in four place there are orange dots. I have no money to strip my hair and I don't trust my friend anymore to do it. I tried cutting it but it didn't hide it at all. And senior pictures were two weeks ago and let me tell you, they looks mighty pretty (oh the sarcasm........)

Oh dear... if you'd asked someone might have been able to tell you that black will stay for ever and is very hard to dye over. I'm sorry you had to learn the hard way. I would suggest finding a good bleach and trying to bleach the black parts. It might not work, but it's cheaper than stripping. And it's not your friend's fault. Don't be mad at her, it's just the way of black hair dye.

About bleaching Adan then dying,  don't know if this is true for everyone but when I do that the color never comes out fully. You can just dye over it, but don't expect it to all wash out. Dying darker than your natural color many times doesn't wash out either, no matter what the package says... of course dying lighter without using a formula with peroxide rarely works... so your kind of screwed in the semi-temporary section (of the regular colors, unnatural colors seem to have their own rules)

Maybe my hair is weird, but that's what I've found.
