asked: Hey. I have somewhat faded black hair with a green tint that I assume is because I put it over teal. And I want a medium brown. That's my natural color. Any suggestions on how to get it back and get rid of the teal and black and all the build up? Thanks (:
Well.. you could wait until it grows out, which is probably the helathiest way.
If you don’t want to wait for so long I would assume to bleach it.Before you start bleaching it you should use an anti dandruff shampoo ‘cause it gets out even more color particles from your dye :) Maybe use it 3-4 times. Massage it in and let it soak in for a couple of minutes. After that you should use some conditioner ‘cause most of the time your hair gets really dry.
After that you can bleach your hair. Usually it’s better to seek the help of a professional person, but if you want to do it yourself I just write how I would do it :)
Buy some bleach and put it on, best would be bleach that lights up your hair 7-9 nuances or something. Apply it on your hair and wait till (Usually 45 minutes) time’s over. Your hair will have an orange-brown-yellow tone now and I’d say you could use a medium brown dye then to achieve the color you want :) It would be the best if you wait at least one week before you dye your hair again - but I know, it’s not that cool walking around with that hair”color” :D.
Or, as I said, seek the help of a professional :)
Anyway, I hope this helps you a little bit :)
