Hair originally golden blonde, darkened to brown as I got older.
I bleached the whole lot with blue powder bleach and 20% hydrogen peroxide, starting at the underneath hair at the back.
Result: Lighter brownish.
Conditioned like mad, especially with warm olive oil and mayo and egg yolks. (Can find recipies _.)
A week later I bleached it all out again. Started with back hair underneath again, then did the roots, then after half an hour did the rest. Left it on about an hour.
Result: Okay but bit too much gold. I must have a lot of red\gold\yellow in my hair.
This is where the hair-dressers will have a fit. I kept up with the deep conditioning as well as using a conditioner on the ends 3 times a day. I let my hair dry in the sun. AND I went to the beach and put sea water on my hair. I didn't soak it; just a splash here and there. The idea of this was to make my hair look more natural which, with the drying in the sun too, it did.
Dilemma comes about now. I don't like this lemony-yellow colour I have and I don't know whether to bleach it again or to add a toner this time. By toner, I mean a permanent or semi-perm colour.
Any ideas, gf's?
I wish I could get hold of some Magic Silver White but it seems to have been discontinued here.
