Before (last week)
Can't see the color too good, but those I dreads, I swear!
I had dyed my hair for years black and quit right before I dreaded. The last 5 inches or so didn't lighten up with bleach. When this fades, I'm goin' hot pink, so I'll try lightening them more. So the brown/black tips are not intended, but I kinda like them.
After bleaching, my knots tightened, so I recommend doing it if you're considering it.
It wasn't the Ani Difranco LPC blue I wanted, but my hair was VERY yellow after bleaching, more so than I usually have in the past, but ah well. I might buy another bottle of darker blue when I get paid again and blue it up a little. It's veggie dye so it won't hurt none.
Thanks for the guide Lish! Any tips on how to actually get my tips to bleach after being dyed black for a year? My roots bleached cuz they were undyed.
