It kind of flopped.
♥ Ion Sensitive Scalp Developer in 30
♥ L’Oreal Quick Blue Hair Bleach
♥ Ion Brilliance Brights in Titanium
Before the bleaching, my roots, which are an ashy dirty blonde brown kind of color that can’t decide if they’re stubborn to bleach or want to absorb it up like crazy. Seems to depend on the day.
Mixing together my bleach and developer, I slapped the combination on my roots and let it sit for about 20 minutes, since I was on a time-crunch and wasn’t thinking to myself, “Hey, you know you need to leave the hair dye on for a few hours, right? You don’t have time for this.”
It comes back to bite me in the butt.
Today wasn’t a day for bleaching well, though the lights actually make it look a little more yellow than it was. I would have given it a bleach bath and some toner before going for the dye, but, again, time-crunch and lack of thinking.
So, instead, I applied the dye and let it sit for about an hour. It was about here that I remembered I not only did I need to swing by the bank before it closed, but that I had books to return and an account that could not handle any more overdue fees this month. Meaning I had less time than I was originally thinking, since I was only thinking of the library. Naturally, I kept the dye on for as long as I could (an hour, give or take), then rushed to rise it out and get my butt out the door.
Photos from after I had returned, it’s not terrible considering the tone of yellow it was covering up, but it’s definitely patchy. I don’t know if that’s because of the dye (I have had some problems with Ion Brilliance Brights in the past, but mostly only with their pastel purple color being patchy), or because it was a botched job from the start, but I’d like to give it another go.
Maybe I can get away with this color at work. Kids can’t really tell your age that young, right? Maybe I went gray early.
Thanks for reading ♥
