Just wound up with two FREE items beause of the special Ion is having this month. If you buy a 1lb tub of Ion Powder Lightener you get a FREE 32oz bottle of developer and because Ion is having a BUY 2 Get 1 FREE special, I got a tube of Ion Color Brillance Brights in Sky Blue (it was the last tube on the display) for FREE as well. I lucked out big time today!Smile

How NOT to lighten and color extensions.
 
1. The extensons should be unbundled separeated for each color application and layed out on plastic bags, not kitchen foil. The aluminum could cause a bad reaction with the lightener and color.
 
2. This person ISN'T wearing gloves.
 
3. Incorrect lightener, incorrect mixing and terrible application resulting in patchy results. 1-2 packets of powder lightener mixed with 2 parts 30vol developer and applied with a tint brush would've worked well. Combing lightener through the hair is a BIG NO-NO!
 
4. Coloring extensions next to lightening extensions is a bad idea; this could mess up the end results. Box dye.....blah. Once again these should be unbundled and on a separate sheet of plastic. Color should be mixed in a clean tint bowl and apllied with a clean tint brush for even results. Again with the rough combingConfused.

Wow there so many videos online RedS that just scare me when it comes to dyeing or bleaching. Probably why I haven't dabbled in colour because of mediocre results or complete disasters.

It's one of those things that I like about the internet; I can type in someting like "Indigo Blue hair" and find a bunch of photos, videos and detailed instructions of what that person did to their hair before and after. You kids are lucky....we didn't have all this information at our fingertips....it was really trial and error.DeadLOL

Here's wicked good video of a colorist doing the ombre/transitional look.The hair is parted in 1" sections and lightly teased  about 3-5" from the roots to blend the the line of demarcation. Powder lightener was applied using 40 vol developer at the ends then 30 at the midshaft then a sheet of plastic wrap covers each layer to keep from bleeding. Note how the colorist applies the lightener and color (Pravana Vivids)  by holding the tint brush vertically to further blend the transitions. Excellent technique here!ClapThumbs Up

What color was your hair before using the purple and which purple did you use?

My hair at the back is my natural medium to light brown hair unfortunately I don't remember the brand at the top of my head It was my cousins but I know for sure it was semi permanent.

Somtimes semi-permanent haircolor won't take to virgin hair unless it's highly porous.
