I'm planning on dying my hair again whenever I get around to getting it chopped off.  Anyways, I always get my hair cut short in the back with longer bangs on the front. All the other times I've dyed it only one solid color. This time I want to do the back turquoise and the bangs I want to do pink and purple stripes.  I always use special effects dye and it tends to bleed alot. I was wondering if it will all just bleed together and make a gross color or if I should wait inbetween coloring the different parts.  I've seen people with more than one color so I know its possible!  Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated.   Smiley

Hair stylists use special foils to separate strands being dyed different colors.  I'm not sure if they are metal free or if regular tinfoils would work.  Maybe harvest some of your hair from your brush apply dye to it and wrap in foil to check for possible discoloration or weird chemical reactions.

What about when it's rinsing time? Since they leak so much will it all blend together?

I think using cold water to rinse will help keep your colours from bleeding together, but the (wrong) colours won't be on your hair long enough to process anyway. Smiley

ok thanks.  I'll try it out.  I think I will try to use colors that will mix well so if it does screw up a bit it will still be ok.
