I posted this in a different thread over a week ago and no one responded so I started a new topic.

Ok I have a question:

I recently purchased an italian yaki unit in 1B and used BW bleach powder with clairol 40 developer to try to create an ombre effect. Of course, as has happened before, the color lifted and looked awesome with a strawberry blonde at the bottom, but ended up looking patchy and ash blonde in the middle (or ugly actually). And I found this odd since I started applying the bleach to the ends and worked my way up. So, I thought I would use a box dye to darken the middle section and make the transitional color look more natural and less harsh which I did just a few minutes ago. Unfortunately the color didn't really take and it looks blotchy and crappy. The reddish brown dyed sections ended up looking like pippy longstocking orange in some sections and just not taking at all in othersDead.

I'm not going to attempt to dye for at least a week and another deep condition since at this point I've done 2 processes in 48 hours. But at this point, I just want to get a nice warm brown in the center and a honey blond at the tips. Any suggestions?

ETA:

Right now I'm thinking I should just use the L'Oreal Hi Color in the blondes or browns colors with a 20 or 30 developer next week. Confused This was supposed to be my vacay hair so I have a month to figure it out! But your help is much appreciated!!!!

Update:

Ok so I was reading that dawn dish soap can take out color. And since the color I dyed was HIDEOUS I wanted to get it out ASAP. So, I ended up using palmolive, and it pulled out ALL of the ugly reddish orange. I'm soooo relieved. So, now it's sitting in a bunch of deep conditioner which I'll rinse out in a bit.

Still need a suggestion on how to dye the middle section a pretty color and not something God awful!

So this was the ombre shade I was trying to achieve:



But at this point, I would happily settle for this:



But the big issue is that I have these weird ash blond/#27 chunks of color near the top line of demarkation where the bleach was applied towards the top of the wig. :( So I'm concerned that they'll take the color differently (if at all) than the rest of the hair.

To update:

I just tried to use the neutral protein filler and 24hrs later I attempted to dye using the L'Oreal Hi Color for dark hair to fix the middle section which was horribly weird looking. It DID NOT take at all on any of the bleached parts.

Any suggestions?

I had a big list of color options but this computer keeps acting funny and deleting everything!Angry
Sounds like the hair can't handle anymore lifting color or bleaching. You'll have to use a deposit only color like a semi permanent or demi permanent. Most usually require 10 volume developer(will not lift), some may require a special developer (read the directions before purchasing just to be sure) and some don't require anything.  You'll want to do a hardcore protein treatment, rinse, allow the hair to airdry then apply color. Process, rinse, then do a deep moisturizing condtioner.
 
This requires 10 vol developer
 
This requires its own special developer and works wonderfully. Very gentle and beautiful color. I loved the red orange shade they had until it got discontinued. This can be found at some local beauty supply stores for a few bucks less than Sally's
here's the developer it requires

Thank you!

Well I'm letting the hair air dry right now and it looks like the color might have took slightly, just not as strong/vibrant as I would have liked. So...I'm going to do an aphogee protein DC and then wait another week before doing any processing, and I was thinking of trying a rinse instead to deposit. It's really the middle section of the hair that is just bugging me! >_<

I'll try your suggestions, there's a Sally's like 15min from me. :)

You could do a rinse now if you'd like; that would actually help the hair out a bit. If the rinse doesn't work out, then move on to the other stuff.

Hi lift colors have very little pigment to tone... so that was the problem

And yes  to tone you can either use a rinse or a tint w/ 10 volume peroxide so NO LIFT just depositing pigment

You can try the ROUX Porosity Control Shampoo & Conditioner then wait a week to tone. Wella ( can be found at Sallys) is good for toning.

Thanks everyone for the tips!

So today I finally put an Adore rinse on the bleached portions of the lf wig in "Spiced Amber" and it took REALLY well! I ended up with something that looks like the Chanel Iman pic I posted above. I'll try to post pics of it after I flatiron and thin the actual lace portion later on tonight. :)

 Protein filler works to help seal the color into your hair shaft so it will last longer. Not only that, but it helps the color go on more evenly so you don't have spots that are darker or lighter and it helps to repair the damage to your hair at the same time.
