  • Color didn't take

    I colored my hair for the third time. I went from dark brown to chestnut blonde to dark brown and now I want to go red. The box color I got did not show up like I wanted and I'm against bleaching. I was just wondering how long do y'all suggest I wait before I try again...

      Color does not lift color. Unfortunately, the only way to lighten hair is with bleach. I've bleached several times from dark to light (once a year) and I ALWAYS make sure I deep condition the week before and once a week going forward. With bleaching, don't leave it in any longer than 45 minutes and make sure your hair is in a healthy state before any more coloring. I'd say wait at least 3-4 weeks just in case. Boxed colors contain bleach in them, even some reds. Hope that helps

        Thanks!! I have actually changed my mind for now... I'm not comfortable with the thought of bleach in my hair but I will just chill for a the winter and wait til spring to color again... And will probably sick with my staple color

            what box dye do you use? I lighten my hair with lemon juice & it takes way too long, so I'm looking for something quick because I need a lighter color to henna

                      Curlycris, I'm not sure what you did, but hair color does not lift color. Darknlovely has ammonia that will lift dark hair somewhat, but usually not a whole lot. Typically, to get desired results like the OP wanted you have to bleach your hair if it's a dark color to begin with. Also, some box dyes have bleach.

                          Who told you this ?
                          All you do is dye your hair a solid color . I did natural black .
                          And then when you want more color you buy a box and apply it and then you rinse it and boom , new color . The more new color i put on , the lighter it got and thats how i got the blonde...
                          I dont understand how "color doesnt lift color"
                          Like you're saying box dye is only suppposed to work on virgin hair ?

                            Well it did fade sadly , the shampoo o used wasnt a color treated shampoo and it did eat at the color . I retouched every 3 months or so . The lightening is a process . Bleach is quick and easy lift but it did take a while . Im natural black again and i plan to start the lifting process again in feb, to get it a medium red by the springish .

                            And when you look at the box. Don't be afraid of the girl on.it... Lmao , shes kinda creep to me with that orange hair .



                            Theres a thread i posted in when i just did it.... Ill try to dig for it
