I just dipped my toes back into red waters yesterday, because I've always been chasing that ginger dream but it always ends up too RED or too dark and I get frustrated and go back blonde.
Anyway, I had about 4" of dark blonde/mousy brown roots, so I bleached them and then used L'Oreal Feria #74, Copper Shimmer I think, which is supposed to be amazing. It worked well enough, but the color looked like a ketchup stain on a white tee. And of course, my roots were super bright compared to the rest. (In retrospect, I wish I hadn't bleached the roots. I think I would actually *like* having my roots darker than the rest of my hair. Sigh.)
I used a dark copper blonde dye over the whole shebang this morning and didn't leave it in very long. I really like what's going on now, except the roots are still way too bright. Any easy fixes for this?
My overall color isn't *quite* my dream color, but it's damn close. If I style my hair funky, then the roots don't look so silly, but I'd rather not have to worry about them.
I'd upload a pic but I forgot my camera at my brother-in-law's house the other night :[ But here's a pic I took from my cell phone. The hair looks great here but it's because of the lighting, I took it in a dark house right under a lamp.( Picture here...Collapse )
