Hmmm... how well would that work on naturally light blonde hair do you think?  My hair tends to react weirdly to hair treatments; I tried lightening it a tad more once and within 5 min it was almost translucent! 

I was thinking... might a covering of red henna for hair fix up my problems and get me closer to the colour I wanted?

Also, damn, I just realised I look like a child in those pics.  I thought blonde hair was supposed to give the illusion of youth, not the other way around!

I finally have a wist!

well, i think that's the idea with this stuff, it doesn't effect your natural hair colour, it removes the dye molecules, so if it works your hair should be how it was before you started.
I'd be wary about using henna, i know in the instructions on most hair dyes it says you can't use them if you've previously coloured your hair with henna, so i assume it would work the other way too.

along similar lines as the henna idea though, i've used stargazer bright red dye to brighten up 'normal' red before, and that's worked for me.

You can definitely use a henna that's all henna and nothing but the henna before/after coloring or perming hair. You definitely DO NOT want to use a henna that has metallic salts added to it before/after coloring/perming hair. The metallic salts can make the hair turn funny colours, break, and even smoke.

If you're looking for henna that's all henna and nothing but the henna, look for henna that's body art quality. Other hennas may have something else added, and not necessarily disclosed on the label. After all, henna is grown in parts of the world where such disclosures are not required by law.

If you're looking for good info on hennaing hair, go to http://hennaforhair.com/ - that sites has boatloads of useful henna information, and henna - the good stuff - can be ordered from there as well.

Hello everyone !

I'm currently trying to use as much as possible natural skin/hair products, thanks to this great forum and its recipes. But I still haven't found something for discolored hair.
I mean, I'm dark-haired naturally, but I discolore them chemically to turn them white every two months. I'm compelled to use a chemical blue shampoo to maintain this shade.
Does anyone has an idea to create a shampoo (ideally, a solid one) to replace the current I have got ?

Thanks for replying Smiley

Lush and Aveda have products like this, maybe one of the B&B goddesses can help you recreate them? (Aveda Blue Malva and Lush Daddy-o)

I know a lot of people have said that even bleaching their hair did not get special effect hair dye out. specifically atomic pink.

my question is: I have already dyed my hair with atomic pink and with some blue mayhem underneath. I lightened my hair to a very light brown before, afraid of damaging the hair and not being able to afford a professional bleaching.
so, if i bleach the hair AFTER havinbg dyed it with the special effects, will it just be brighter? or will I lose color?

In my experience, you will still lighten the hair underneath the special effects, and leech some of the special effects out. So it will be lighter all in all.

I use the atomic pink on a regular basis, and the only way I have been able to get rid of it was to let it fade and put another colour over it, or bleach it out as much as possible, then put a permanent black over it....

ok, so in it's current stage, atomic pink over light brown... beaching it will make it less bright pink, but a lighter level as well?

I want bright hair. it doesn't look terrible currently, but it's less atomic, more... dark magenta

try a low volume bleaching then.... it will lighten the hair underneath as well as leech some of the pink. If you're more magenta right now, then it will pop more pink afterwards...but you might have to reapply the pink sooner since you are bleaching it....
