Do any of you get bored with your hair colour, for folks that colour it?
Am getting so bored with my black hair so have been letting it come out and am going to try to get more out using vosene soon, haha!!
I heard that or head and shoulders shampoo help to strip colour a bit.
If i wait again for the colour to fade it could take years with the length of it.
My roots are so in but i dont care.
Am just kinda hiding away till i can show my face. LOL

I have some black hairdye just now, but have put off doing it cause i know i will be fed up and regret it.
I want to do a deep plum/purple colour.
I dont want to bleach it first though, even though i did have my hairstylist do that for a bright red fringe/bangs and sides, a while back.
It was lovely and in great condition, but just too much upkeep, and so dont like when it goes pink. LOL
I got lots of compliments when i also had a very vibrant burgandy colour, but again i got bored.
I do it myself anyway, but since my hair is so bloomin long it takes ages, god help me!!
Am i kiddin myself that this Vosene or head and shoulders will help get some of the black out?
I am goin to try anyway.
I just washed it again about half an hour ago, dont have those shampoos though yet, and i saw that quite a bit of colour was coming out anyway, hehe!!
Just wondering what brand of hair colur to buy.
I use L'Oreal casting creme gloss, and it is really good, makes my hair feel very soft and looks shiney, so i may just go for that in plum.
It has no amonia too which i like and actually smells nice. lol
Just hope i can see the purple/plum colour when it's done.
I though of Live XXL cyber purple, but i used the blue black one years ago and it burned like mad, and the next day i had flakes of skin coming off!! so not good!!
The colour was good, but didnt last that long and not worth the pain.
The smell of it was so strong i just knew it was bad.

The only thing i like about havin black hair is my red lippy looks cool with it, but am sure should be fine with a dark purple. LOL
Of course i will most likely get bored again and go back to black at some point.
What am i like eh. :)

I used to be awful for dying my hair, I've been ginger, chestnut, brown, black, had red slices, blonde streaks, highlights, low lights, purple streaks anddd had under my fringe and down the front of my hair done, blue, green, pink, turquoise and purple! I'm used to be terrible haha, changing it every week literally! I'm better now, it's actually a nice natural auburn brown now :D

If you don't want to bleach your hair, but you want the colour out, you could use stripper :D Idk the proper name for it, but you can get it from hair dressing supply shops!
Good luck :)

Casting Creme Gloss is brilliant - so much easier on your hair and scalp than others - yeah use the head and shoulders I have used that when my hair has turned out too dark and it does really work - if you put the plum in now, it will take a bit and then in about 2 or 3 weeks use it again and it should be better.

I used to V V V adventurous with colour everying from, red, pink, blue, orange, blond etc etc even orange with green on the ends, I was like a peacock lol!!!

My hair is naturally black, with a hint of grey at the front :(

I get a really vibrant purple semi-perm put on every 6 weeks and in normal light it looks really dark, just kinda black but in un-natural light or daylight it looks mega purple, I really like it and my hair has never been in such good condition. WHen I had the wild funky coloured the had to pre-bleach my hair and my hair was like cotton wool lol!

I think a dark purple would look ace on you Terri, I was gonna suggest the Live colours as thats what I have used before but I see that you have tried them and you had flakes of skin coming off - not good! Not used any other brands so I can't really help, I get the hairdresser to do it cause I always make a BIG mess when I do it at home!

HAHA!! good to see am not the only one that has went crazy with colours over the years.
I had an electric blue down the sides and on my fringe for my 30th birthday. lol
I also had my hair bleachd blonde many years ago. hehe!!
I got that done at the salon and was in good condition.
It's funny i would never dream of having light hair now even though that is my natural colour.
When my roots are in you can really see them, plus sadly now i have a few greys at the front. BOO!! lol
I will def get the head and shoulders then to help get some of the black out.

Yeah Rio i think the thing you mean is called colour fix?, from Sallys, but i dont want to do that really, my hair is in good nick so dont want to chance puting anythin harsh on it, especially at home myself.
Dont want to end up with Orange or green hair, (sorry Lynda lol) that would be my luck, least i can still go out this way. haha!!

I think you can get it from Sally Hansens yeh :D I used it on mine at home and it turned out pretty good actually, softer than before 'cause years of build up was removed (said my hairdresser) :)
Can your hairdresser not do it?

I think the colourist at my hairdressers would just want to bleach it like last time to be honest, and this time it is all over not just parts.
Am fine doing the dye job myself been doing it for years, and will just try the shampoo route first. :)
I am sure as time goes on the more i do it plum the less you will notice the black as it slowly ends up at my ends.
Very slowly am sure though. LOL
If it is too drastic a difference or i cant see the plum i may call and ask what she could do for me. x

Or just use my normal one?, cause i dont want my hair to feel like crap after i wash it. lol

i didnt read this whole thread but I have dyed my hair black for 4 years now its super long and i use head and shoulders everyday lol it doesn't strip my hair of colour but it gives it the best silky shine ever. I also am sooooooo bored with it but everytime I see someone I haven't seen in forever they say "i love your hair black" which makes me not wanna change it anymore lol Plus I don't want to pay $200 to get it bleached and kill it since it's so healthy right now. My hair is really thick and naturally curly also so it uses A LOT of dye. I grew my roots out half way once then gave in and dyed it black again lol i hate how its so hard to get the black out

You sound like you have the same kind of hair as me.
I always have to buy 2 boxes of dye. :)

Yikes, well i have went ahead and got some head and shoulders, so fingers crossed it works for me. lol
Have been using my mans shampoo in the meantime which isnt for colured hair and have noticed a lot of dye coming out which is good.
My hair doesnt hold dye too well, plus have only been using semi permanant hair colour.
You are right though Black is a killer to get out.
This is the longest i have let my roots come in and i have very fair hair so it looks awful, at the length it is has some reddish/burgandy cause that was the colour i had before, so am hoping that with plum on top it will take really well.
I def dont want to have it bleached either.

I dye my hair blueblack.. i've been bleach blonde, red, red black, black, purple black, chocolate brown you name it i'm sure i've done it!! i use to have a crisis and colour my hair!

How plummy do you want it?? i tend to mix 2 colours together at home sometimes like wiht my red black i mixed ketchup red with black an it went lovely!! ~Only thing you will find unless you totally strip it out is that your roots will be way more plummy than the ends which maynot look too good!!

I dont mind if it is a deep plum.
The casting creme gloss usually comes out quite dark.
I have done the blue black aswell, and it wasnt such a noticeable difference with my length and roots, apart from when it starts to fade with washing etc...
