I've been a long-time lurker and seldom poster.
I have really screwed up my hair.
I have done some terrible things to my hair this week in an attempt to remove the teal color from my hair. I had Ion Color Brilliance Brights teal/sky blue mixed into my hair. I touched it up once in five months, and it had barely faded.
...I just wanted my brown back.
Then, I bleached it to a pale cotton candy blue. blegh. Dyed over it with an ash brown and a light red. This pond scum was the result.
I added in some extensions, trying to hide the ugliness, but the green color showed through (you can see it on the wispy ends of my hair)
Then I color oops'd it out and this is what I am left with. A coppery, greeny, hideous mess. A mosaic of vomit, if you like.
So I am left wondering what to do. I set up an appointment to have the color dyed over and fixed next week, but I am really nervous. She won't bleach it, so I am worried the color will just be green again.
What if I'm stuck with green hair? I wear dreads, and I don't want to look like I have mold in my hair, because I represent an entire community of really cool people with clean locked hair.
I don't know what to do, or who to trust with my hair.
I kind of want to bleach it one final time on my own, since salons feel it's a liability and won't do it. The hair isn't snapping off and breaking and it is still maintaining its elasticity and all, but ... any advice anyone? I am not worried about having short baby dreads as long as I can still attach my extensions. I strongly regret this teal now...
I'd be even willing to go see you, Lish, if you think you can help. I am nervous and scared and don't want to cut my hair as it's been short for the last 5 or so years. v____v I dun goof'd. Any words of encouragement or ... well anything would be helpful.
Thanks everyone for being neato! I love to watch your hair progress and grow and change! <3
