AHHHHH My Hair is lavender! - Page 2

post #31 of 53
Wow, i guess i've been lucky. I used the L'oreal Feria stuff, and it turned out fabulous. I recently tried the Herbal Essences streaking kit and it's soooo easy and turned out just the way i wanted. Can't beat it for $9.99 a box (cad).

Thanks Cindy. I used to use Colesterol when I was a teenager but forgot about it. Luckily my hair stays pretty nice but it wouldn't hurt to use it as a prevetative measure!

Jacklyn, it wasn't the Feria. As I mentioned, it was that my hair was so light it picked up the toner. Would have happened if I used the same color from any brand. My hair was a very extra light platinum blonde.

I've been lucky with hair colour so far. I've done my own hair 3 times, and each time, it came out the way I wanted it. The second time was a little light, and this time, it's absolutely perfect. I use Clairol Natural Instincts (Rosewood). I've had my hair done at the salon a few times, and was never completely satified... so I tried at home. Though I must admit I'm nervous when I do it myself, because I hear these horror stories (a bit like yours, mzjazz2u), and the last thing I want is to have to show up at work with jet black or bright red hair and have my customers worry about what I'm going to do to their dogs!
I had one client ask me to dye his male dog's hair light pink as a joke for his daughter, but I said "no".

I've dyed my own hair since I was in my early 20's. I've only had 2 YIKES since I decided to go red about 5 yrs ago. One time I picked up Dark Auburn...and turned PURPLE - a deep burgundy purple! This summer I picked up Feria's Copper. I towel dryed my hair, took off the towel, and fell on my butt! MY HAIR WAS ORANGE! Bright carrot orange! I put on a hat and ran to the store for another kit! I had to wait 24 hrs before I could re-dye so I walked around with that hat on all day! At 24 hrs and 3 seconds the new dye was on my hair!

I didn't wait 24 hours and wouldn't! And the Loreal consultant told me I didn't have to. Thank God!

I've been dying my own hair since I was 13 (32 years)! And I've only had 2 OOPS!! So I've been pretty lucky. Both times Loreal has told me what to do and it worked. Did you know that Loreal is what all the beauty salons used back before around 1975 when they went on the public market?

Cindy, I'm going to buy myself some more of that Cholesterol. I have a beauty supply store near me where they'll sell to the public (except for perms and I think color.) But in the meantime, yesterday I did buy something called Moisture Miracle Emergency Repair Kit. I'll have to find my reading glasses to see what is in it!

I think this thread is highly bias towards you lot who have hair!!! My wife says I have nuclear hair - it has too much fall out, my work colleagues say I have fly away hair= its so far flown away off my head and into another country.
I used to have a lot more and started losing it - I was on a farm watching some sheep get sheared and I fell in with them. The next thing I knew was I was flat on my back with some big bloke holding my body like a sheep and the rest is history .zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz all over the top and sides and now am kinda used to it.

I used to use the wash in/wash out color. One time at work, one of the girls asked my why my hair was pink. Since she was a, well, you all know, I said "cause I want it that way". Actually, I hadn't noticed it, it was such a gradual fade. I went back to my office and looked in the mirror. Yep, you could say it was pink. Oh well. Now, it is just gray. I refuse to go thru all that to cover up what I have earned!

THAT'S what happened to me, with the Revlon stuff. I used color remover and went right back to L'Oreal.

I am determined to DIE, as a blonde or redhead! To heck, with that awful color, growing in at my temples. Just because I AM somebody's grandmother, doesn't mean that I have to look like one!

I've been thinking about coloring my hair again, but after reading all of this I think I'll get it done professionally. I've always done it in the past but it'd be just my luck it'd turn some funky color!

Plus, I'm not sure what color I want to go with quite yet. But I can tell you, I'm not into Lavender...even though the pic's were pretty cool!

I tried the Colorspa, when it first hit the market and I didn't like it. After about a week, it went brassy on me. Excellence or Preference for me!
post #46 of 53
Uh oh...what do you mean by brassy....My hair is a light brown and Im trying to go darker. Since this stuff susposedly washes out in about a month I chose it so if I didnt like it it wouldnt matter.....
post #47 of 53
very punk! I had tried to dye my hair, but dark brown doesnt take well to other colors. The best I can ever hope for is some good highlights.

He he, ok i read Tammies posts about her hair turning lavendar, so i'm thinking....ok she's blonde, i'm dark brunette, those funky colours only happen to blondes....right???

Ok so it's winter here, no sun, so my skin tone is turning paler and paler, almost porcelain like, and with my very dark eyes.... i'm thinking ( and seeing!)Morticia from Adams family in the mirror

Ok so off to shops, decide on L'Oreal Excellence Natural Light Brown, looks like a good warm shade of brown almost like milk chocolate, not too far out for my hair.....should be ok, right??

half hour later and i am now officially carrot top!!!!!!!!!!

ummmmm how????

If you naturally have dark hair, you have to strip off your natural color. Clairol makes a good bleach. I think that its called "Born Blond". It comes in a blue-and-white package.

With any color, if you've never dyed before, its a good idea to do a test first. The instructions are in the package.

Opps! Call the number on the package for customer service, if there is one. They are very good at telling you how to fix color.

Man! I opened a can of worms here, didn't I?

Congratulations - I have been married to a red head/ carrot top for years and have a son that is also a red head - both I call carrot tops or duracel as they are both red / copper colored up there. possibly duracel is the better name as when they both get started - like the battery - they go on, and on and on and on and on.

I love my car - its my means of escape.

I get a red head a few times a year - normally caused through being a foot taller than most in my familly and thats a foot nearer the sun. ouch! suncream days are not good for me......

wondering where the squeak went that I put some oil on a door hinge this afternoon. Have been looking for it as it stopped right after i oiled it - wierd
post #53 of 53
I had hair the colour of Ribena(blackcurrant)once but I did that on purpose to match my dress for my last summer ball at university. I did dye my hair blond once and ended up with hair the colour of chicken tikka, I sent my dad out to get a nice permanant blue black l'Oreal straight away and had to redo it every fortnight because the colour kept fading and left me with funny blue/grey hair. Thank goodness it was short then!!
