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?

Since then I've gotten a bit more of a button down job and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on getting back to normal after going with a bright color like that. Like it washed out fairly quickly on its own, but are there any products that will help it along without either costing an arm and a leg, or burning my scalp/frying my hair? I'm naturally blonde (a dirty one, hah!). I'm wondering if I lighten to a very light blonde and then apply the ion red, will I be able to get the red out and potentially apply a natural looking blonde to it when I get back? It doesn't have to be perfect, as long as it's passable.
