Hey guys,

I have a client who has bleached blonde hair. Her natural base is around a 5/6 and the rest is bleached, lighter on the ends and kinda yellow mid length. She has massive regrowth.

She wants to colour crazy pink. I'm thinking bleach the roots first then run down through mid lengths to get an even colour and then put crazy color pink on top.

What do you guys think?

If she has a massive regrowth you will probably need to follow the procedure for full head lightening by applying to the midband of the root first and leaving a 3cm gap at the scalp, then once the midband is an 8 apply to the scalp.

I'd use a very gentle lightening technique for the midlengths, Wella have provided us with a brilliant one:

1 part blondor multi blonde powder or soft blonde cream to 4 parts pastel developer; development time is up to 50 minutes and you can reapply if the hairs condition will allow it.

To be completely honest crazy colour isn't really the best brand out there for bright semi permanent colours, it has a green base so when it fades out it leaves a green tone.

Is your client aware of the upkeep required as the first couple of applications will fade quite quickly? I'd suggest retailing a bottle of crazy colour plus gloves to take home with her.

I think the fading to green in crazy colour only really affects the blue based shades inc. Turqoise & Purple.
Pinkissimo or Cyclamen should be fine.

Cams, have you tried this with olaplex yet? I am thinking color touch 4% would be the way to go, right.

Hi cams - first, thank you so much for your help.

Instamatic with 1.4?

Instamatic I've been told fades out nicely?

Thanks again x

All you need is 1.9% with the instamatic. It fades out quite quickly though. Pink lasts a while compared to the rest.

Also they're pastel colours so they're not very vibrant is that what your clients aiming for?

Just read some reviews which said they aren't very bright.

She's after a baby pink.

Back to crazy colour? Do you know of any alternatives?

Thanks

Manic Panic and Directions are good.

As it's been coloured with a box dye and then bleached, I wouldn't use another product requiring peroxide on it if I didn't have to, as the cuticle layer could become very damaged.
