I've read that rinsing you hair in vinegar directly after dying is supposed to make the color last longer. I have yet to try, I always forget.
Buy good shampoo. No sulfates or stripping chemicals. I like Tressa. I use their Watercolors in Ultra Violet. My hair is purple so I figured that colored shampoo would work well and at the very least it might neutralize any orangey tones of the bleached hair underneath when the color fades. I love this shampoo. I went from having to redye my hair every two weeks to just once every 1.5 months. I even wash my hair (almost) every day.
I'm considering going from dark purple to blonde. I dont want to bleach my hair again since it is bleached underneath the color. How could I do this with minimal damage to my hair?
It could possibly work. When using the neutralizing lotion on a perm (closing down the cuticle of the hair) you are using basically hydrogen peroxide. I do not remember the percentage. but based on this-
100% hydrogen peroxide concentration is 6.2 PH
apple cider vinegar pH which is somewhere between 2.8 - 3.0
Now if I am thinking right. This would REALLY shut the cuticle down of the hair.... maybe im wrong on that? Hummm I think i need to do some looking into this. Im tired.
For your hair.. it deppends what brand of color have you used to make it purple and how light of hair did you have when you put the purple on? also how much out growth do you have and what has been done to it?
