Hair color


New Member
A few months ago i dyed my hair Permanent red and bleached it but only some bleach took so i decided to go black(permanent). After a month of black i bleached it and thats where disaster started. My gair was orange, brown, and black. after using a color remover i haf just an orange color. After another bleach i was able to get some blonde. yesterday made a month so i bleached again and have a lot more blonde but CANNOT lift some orangey red spots!!! they do get lighter but i do not want to keep bleaching nor want to see a hairstylist just yet. im not sure about a toner because the spots may not be lightened enough. im not too worried about damage because i have short hair and will be cutting a lot off after all of this anyways. To mention i’ve been through a ton of semi permanent hair colors and bleach and my hair can get very very blonde almost white and have never had this issue before. im starting to think to wait awhile and try a better bleach or just blonde box dye only on the parts that wont lift. im just wondering if anyone else has had this issue/ can help with resolving it weather its using a toner, color remover again, or something that can lift it just trying to stay away from bleach for a little. Also forgot the top loves the bleach and took pretty well its just my length that is stubborn.

This is a forum for professional hairdressers and it’s against forum rules to give technical colour advice to an unqualified diy-er.
Please see a qualified colourist and avoid using any more strong chemicals, otherwise you risk sections of your hair breaking off.
Hair doesn’t have feelings, it’s not being stubborn. It’s because you don’t understand enough about colour chemistry that you aren’t getting the results you want. :confused:
