aubergine, with the black maybe it would have worked better if you had just dyed the roots and not the rest.


Thankd for the suggestion AngelDream - but I try it every time.  Dying just the roots just makes the colour on my blonde even more vibrant, unless I dye it black that is, but I don't want to do that again.

Hi Tim,
I'd recommend you don't dye your hair blue black unless your not bothered about having to strip or bleach it to get back to a brown colour.

I'm a natural light blonde (and hate it) and I started dying my hair perminant because semi-perm dyes went orange on my hair.  I dyed it perminant Blue/Black and it was absolutely gorgeous, really shiny and cool, but then my roots grew and the hair just looked stupid when I dyed over again.  I'm now trying to get the black out of my hair so I can go a lighter colour.

The novelty of black wears off really fast - I too am pale and blue-eyed, and black suits me better than my natural colour, but it get's boring.

have you seen Gerard Way's hair recently? I saw them at the Warped Tour, he cut it off and the top is blonde

I think he should make it all black again

I also have light skin and want darker hair, but not black, I'm too afraid to go black, lol

well i have naturally light brown hair and i wanted my hair black for ages before i plucked up the courage to actually dye it, i went straight for the permenant colour, i chose looreal hydrience black pearl, which sshines white in the sun, i have really pale skin it looks like i never leave the house but all orf my mates and people that know me said that black hair suited me more than my natural colour, if you use a colour suitable shampoo the results stay the same and the colour down fade, if you are going out in the sun for a long time then you will have to wear a hat for the first few weeks while the colour settles, any other problems then email me

Well said

Since u really want perfect blue black hair why don't you consult a good stylist and ask them how u can maintain it? You never know, he/she may have good advice!

Heya Guys....

 

Just dyed my hair black semi on top of the old semi and it loookss awsummm....The way im gunner decided whether to use permanent is how fast it fades... i have like a fancy dress gig at the local pub and im gunner go with the  hai, thats in 15 days so well see how much it has faded and decide then as you well know spending money on two boxes of hair dye t get the color i want each time wud work out very costy.. Will post some pictures later on:)

Thanks for all your help...I have one more que tho lol prob not the last...

 

If i decided that i wanted to dye my hair permanent before this gig in 15...could i dye it permanent over the semi inabout 15 days time if it has faded alot or little it depends...

I would dye blue black over it....so i was wondering whether it would look ok and work or not....

 

Thanks v much guys for everything:D:D

He looks like billy corgan with hair, lol!!!

I will try to help you based on what i learned when i had black hair.

1) When I had black hair I wanted to put some black on with a red tint, this however did not work. All it did was make my outgrowth look alitlle more red. So I wouldn't count on the fact that the black with blue would show if you decide to color it after having colored it black once before.

2) From what i can tell on the pic on top it looks as if he has black with blue color but on the one below it just looks black. You have to decide which one you like the best.

3) Im sorry to say that i think the blue black will be just as demanding to remove as the plain black one, as they will both require bleaching and or colorremover. But you know what, I removed the black and im still alive. It can be done you will just have to realice that it will cost some money and your hair could be damaged.

Perhaps if you dye it jet black with a semi permanent you will have time to think about if you would rather have blue black or just black.
I don't know if you can get semi permanent color with blue black?

You could try that out in that case before you decide to color it with permanent color. But it sounds to me like you really want black hair of some shade so perhaps it wouldn't be so bad if you used a permanent color?

Let us know what you decide. I hope i helped alittle

Heya Again Guys.....I'm Dying my hair later on with a semi permanent.....

However just wanted to ask a few questions incase it didn't turn out how i want it.....Firstly I'm into rock music so id like the typical rock look......Blue black is the normal colour rock peeps dye their hair and i was wondering whether...if i dyed my hair jet black then decided i wanted to try blue black would blue black show up over the jet black (this is if i dyed it permanent) thats my first que

 

 my second question is about the pictures im going to include...i want my Hair Like Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance....not with the parting etc just the color but i can't tell whether is black with just light shining on it or whether its blue black.....So could you take a look for me please:D

Also would blue black be easier to remove then black if it didn't suit or harder......

 

So to some up the questions:

1.) Would blue black show up over jet black if i decided i wanted to dye my hair blue black after i had dyed it permanent black...

2.) What color is Gerard Ways hair in the picture?

3.) Would Blue Black be easier to remove?

and if any of you guys have any other information youd like to share with me please let me know!:D:D:D

Thanks very Much again.....

 

P.s The Pictures are Below....

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks again guys:D

Not sure what it's called just know my sister got it when she had trouble getting the haircolor to stick on her hair. She wanted it a brown color so she used the botle i was telling you about then she got the same color but permanent. It worked and brought out the color she wanted.
Was that what you were thinking about Veronica?

Hi tim!

There is another thing you could try, in hair salons you can sometimes get color that they recommend that you put on before you color it, this color is only ment to bring out the color (that you want to aply afterwards) even more, so it is not a permanent color. I don't know what this is called, but if you ask in any salon where they sell hair color i am sure they will know what you mean. If you get the black color there and then try some demi/semi hair color this could stop your color from fading so quick..

Dont know if you will find this color in the UK.

Good luck, hope everything turns out ok.

Let us know

Hi its me (AGAIN!) lol...

I'll answer ur q's as best as i can in reverse order:

Will ur hair be less shiny? Well there shouldn't be any reason for it not to if ur just using semi a second time, therefore i don't believe that'll have an effect.

As far as fading, w/ the color treated shampoos and wht not, it shouldn't be too much esp. where u are (lucky enough to not have the sun shining in ur face lol, which greatly fades color!) Reds are usually the ones that fade the fastest...)

And the color will be a little darker than what it already is, but i can't how much more since i can't see ur hair lol...i'm guessing black black?

Lol well thats it i think. Oh and i have another tip: I suggest getting the blue black shade in Manic Panic or any of those "outrageous" temp. dyes and each time u shampoo add maybe a teaspoon or so of the dye w/ it then shampoo. Good luck!

Of course we are interested in knowing wht happened!
