my hair has turquoise like streaks in it.  i had it done at a salon (i know, i know, i suck.)  it's already fading three weeks later.  i want to refresh it at some point, and so far all the dyes i've used over it (namely manic panic, i think, and some other kind) have just gone on the bleached parts, and left my brown hair brown.  will special effects do that?

is it true that if a person with light colored hair dyes it black it never goes back to its original color?

snowwhite: Thanks  Smiley  And I do exactly the same thing with color except I go between black, pink, and black and pink  Cheesy

Dithmer: if you want it all turquoise you'll have to bleach it.  Any turquoise dye will not color on brown hair, it's just too dark to take up the color. AND turquoise is a hard color to keep, it fades to green rather quickly.  I STILL recommend Special Effects, though.  I have a pic of mine after it faded if you want to see.

whyislife: Really if you dye ANY color hair with permanent dye you probably can't get it back to it's original color.  I've never had a color fade out completely.  But you know, you can always grow it out! Grin

I just went back to bettie bangs about two weeks ago after growing them out for a year or so. I can totally understand about spazzing over your forehead. I also went back to dyed black about a week ago after almost two years of a "natural" color. I was being totally absurd and thinking since i had a kid I had to grow up. Roll Eyes silly me. thanks to all the alternitive dressed mommies on craftster I'm happy to be myself again. I plan to bleach my tips and dye them blue in the next week or so.
On a completely unrelated note. I am writing this whilst dressed in my pirate costume......huzzah for ren faires! Grin

I decided I needed a bit of a pep up, since I've been feeling down a bit, so I dyed my hair.

It's actually a little bit brighter and a tiny bit more pink (I've redyed it) at the front, and the back is a little more red. I've got plenty of compliments on it Smiley

If you're interested, the colour is called Cyclamen, and the brand is some brand I've never come across before (I'm from Aus.. we do't have manic panic etc that I know of here.)

Love my vampy pose Cheesy

Um....hair grows out.

My natural hair color is a mousey brown/dirty blonde, I dyed it brunette-ish, a few months ago, and just recently added black streaks....not as crazy as some of you guys, but it's a big step for me

The brown color is actually darker than shown in the pics, the flash reflected, and I had to lighten the pics, because you couldn't see anything originally. These arent' great pictures..but it's all I've got for the moment, it looks cooler with my hair down.

I finally got my hair cut...it was starting to get all long and weird.  My friends called it 'emo hair'.   Tongue  I'm gonna hold off dyeing it until this next week is over though.

So, why is it when you get your hair cut by a middle-aged woman, they always style it like YOU are also middle-aged?  It was all poofy on top, so when I got back to work I turned it into a mohawk.  Unfortunately, by the time I got home to take pictures it was starting to flop and I was too lazy to fix it...

Ignore the 'bald' spot.

Snowwhitesuicide . . . how did you bleach the black out of your hair?
I've dyed mine black for six years, and now I want colors, because I'm a housewife and I do whut I want.
Anyway, my friend Eli is in beauty school and she and I tried a bleach cap (where you mix the QuikBlue with shampoo and put a shower cap on your head) and we tried a "color corrective". It was a pretty dramatic difference, after several hours, but unfortunately, as it says on the package, the color corrective reverted after a few washes. So now it's black on the bottom, reddish in the middleish, and dark brown (grown out) at the top.
Whatever you did, I need to do.

Where exactly in the yard?  On the croquet lawn?  By the bird bath?  Marty, where do you think we should bury these babies with webbed feet?  The back yard is getting very crowded i think.  positively littered with corpses.  First daddy's and now duck babies.
