I don't know if this even exists. But I want a red based dye as dark as I can possibly get one, without going brown. I am asking for a lot, I know.
The problem is that I have ash based hair naturally. I have been dying it Shocking Blue for the past year but had to dye it a "conservative" shade temporarily without having much time to prep my hair for this. I chose black because I did not have time to bleach, blend, tone, etc. Black hair, with a natural ash undertone and blue based dye underneath is having the unfortunate, and not unexpected, result of fading to a green/brown colour in many places, especially ones that are over processed. I have been told to use a dye with red undertones to counteract the ash, but it is not healthy enough to bleach out and redo in a red or purple, and I can only find black dyes that are blue based.
Long story short, can I keep my hair blackish while using a red based dye? I look awful in swamp hair.
