Quote from schwarzkopt

Like I mentioned briefly before, the bleaching process has gotten rid of all the red tones in your hair. Simply applying a brown dye over the top may result is some seriously undesireable results. Ash Browns in particular have underlying greens and blue tones in them, very little red. So applying this to a hair colour which is yellow ? At worst Green, or at best a very flat ashy looking color which may look very strange in certain lights.

To go back from bleached blonde to brown, just like going bleached blonde FROM brown, is something best done in two stages.

You took all the red tones out, so now it's time to put them back in again. You should choose a very warm golden blonde, or really red shade and apply to you hair. This should be left on until you hair is completely red/ginger in color, probably a good 25 to 30 mins. This is called applying a 'filler' shade.

Once your hair is really red/ginger, it's time again to reapply a medium brown color over the top of this. Start with a brown shade that is not too dark in color, as it is always easier to go a shade or two darker later than it is to end up with hair thats far too dark and having to wait until it fades or grows out. Again, avoid shades which have lots of red tones in them. You don't need them now. The result (fingers crossed !) should be a nice even brown shade.


Here is one ladies experience :

"I had platinum blonde hair all last year (bleached) and i am naturally dark brown. Here is how my very expensive hairdresser turned it back to brown. I will tell you and you can do it a lot cheaper!!!! :)

1. she dyed it red first. Permanent red colouring. You can buy Permanent red dye at the market.

2. straight after washing that red dye out and while it was still damp, she put permanent dark brown dye on my hair. You might want a lighter shade than this, but I wanted dark brown.

3. that's it.

Then you need to condition it a lot for the rest of your life :) or until it grows out. whichever comes first :)

Basically, all the colour has been bleached out of that length of hair, so you need to put the coluor back in. You can't go straight to brown, you have to go red first.

OTHERWISE IT COULD LOOK GREEN.

This is because brown hair actually has a lot of blue/green hidden in it. And blue/green over yellow looks green. Trust me on this. Go red first!!!! You need to deposit a lot of red back in. You are reversing the bleach process, which goes brown to red to orange to yellow. Now you want to go yellow to red to brown.

If you do red permanent, then brown permanent, the blonde will be covered. You may have to very occassionally put in a brown semi's, as these can add gloss and pump up the hair shaft, and add more colour richness. Then just condition it and grow it out."

Have not read the thread, but your going to need to put the red back in then go brown, so you will dye it twice, avoid ash colours as they are good for STRIPPING red hair coulour out you want to put it back in.
If you need any help just ask I have home dyed loads and NEVER had a green head yet :)


Great thanks hun!

What would be best, if i wanted to stay blonde? Is there anything strong to use on roots? Thats works without going orange? x:thumbsup:

"in kind" means by sexual favours..

"blondie" is an insult to your intelligence..

and winding you up is kinda a compliment.

Laugh at him :) x x

actually I don't abuse katie quite so much as the rest, as the looks moderately attractive. Saying that she's probably a man. Still... least shes made an effort to appease me.

It all depends on what you used to dye your hair originally, what shade it is now and what shade your roots are:)


N a never purple either :p

so you've never had a purple head?
