3rd stage Purplitis


Medical researchers discover terrifying purple scourge!

This is my head. Doesn’t it look like something out of a medical textbook? I tried to dye my hair purple. Salon De Pro “Hair Manicure” didn’t do much for the hair color, but look at the lovely tint of my scalp.

I will never dye my hair purple again
I will never dye my hair purple again
I will never dye my hair purple again
I will never dye my hair purple again
I will never dye my hair purple again

But I might try blonde…

koolaid mix works brilliantly for that too. Don’t add sugar though that has bad side effects.

you do know that in order to get your hair to take on colors
like purple green pink or blue you need to bleach it blond
first , if you are not a natural blond that is.
go to any hair dresser they should tell you the same.

i made the same mistake when i tryed to get a blue result.

Actually, though my hairs been every shade from blonde to black, I’ve never dyed my hair any unnatural color before. I think when this purplish brown mess fades (3 weeks, according to the package, but I’m hoping the chlorine in the pool will hasten it along) I’ll just go for a nice auburn, like I usually do.

I wonder if all those Goth guys and chicks in Harajuku with purple and pink and green hair start out with dying their hair blond? I didn’t realize you had to put a lot of effort to actually achieve that look!

Long time lurker, first time commenter. Anyway, I’ve done odd things with my hair (corse asian black) and yes, bleaching is required for any sort of semi-permanent color change. I’ve used bleaching products for “professionals” from Sally’s Beauty Supply shops, and left the bleach in for way over the recommended time frame (usually 2 hours) using more potent peroxides (usually 40 volume). But that usually gives me a nice blank slate. As a bonus, the bleach damaged hair takes colors very well.

I wonder what that does to the brain?

And oh yeah, you do have to bleach it out. The first time I did it I got it almost all the way to totally white. I liked that so much I kept it that way.
