This thread is fascinating! I am in awe of you ladies!


I am also right in the middle of experimenting with salon colors on the wefts so this is of great interest to meTongue I tried Redken color gels this week-end and next I will try Loreal Majirel and Paul Mitchell the color.
But this is sooo interesting about the fabric dyes! I have not had any issues with human hair dye bleeding, but then again I don't darken I always lighten.

What I am dying to know is this:

The human hair dyes leave beautiful highlights on the wefts. I love the ones I did this week-end. Will the acid dye leave varied natural color on the wefts or a flat matte color?

(I know the pros are supposed to use it but they may have some secret process to leave natural highlights)

IMO, No. This is the drawback of using the acid dye. It's meant to dye uniformly and evenly. I'm more interested in finding out about depigmentation without bleach.

Did you get your color from eBay or are you a stylist or have a hookup on professional color? LMK how the Majirel turns out, I have heard good things about that line.

Girl the pros ain't tellin' us nothin' so this is truly trial and error.. LOLLOL I'm sure that the answer is yes based on the colored hair we have all bought with beautiful highlights.. (Since we know most of these companies are using fabric dyes to color hair..) I guess it's a matter of learning the correct dying techniques to achieve the effect..Big smile
 
Chuladi, I'm thinking something along the lines of a tie dye technique might work..

I got it from Ebay. I'm not a stylist, I think my granny called it a kitchen beauticianLOL
I also got swatch books and color charts so I know the ratios to mix and can put the color against my skin to see how it would look. Of course the hair should be pale blonde to get the swatch color otherwise you have use the color wheel to get desired result. I don't like to bleach it that light since it will have to go through another process after. I'm using CHI blondest blonde right now to lighten but I just go to a golden blonde.

I'm really interested in the dyeing without bleach too that would be ideal.

I think I'm trying the Majirel next. I saw stylists raving about it on one of their boards. I just colored my own hair with Loreal hi-color for dark hair and its the first time I got a brown that wasn't reddish...that really makes me want to try the majirel...

LOL at willing to risk it!LOLLOL

Oh yeah I forgot about those I had to sign them for Kodak and Xerox. My husband's boss got sued over one because she left their old company and stole not 1 not 2 but 3 of her former employees (who were unhappy there anyway and glad to go)She had signed an agreement that included a clause about not only intellectual property but because she was a VP no hiring of former employees for a year. She did it anyway! Repeatedly!

The new companies' lawyer and the old companies' settled so basically they paid off the old company and got away with it.

So if our "undercover agent" gets caught we will have to pool our bucks together and buy them off! As much as we ladies spend on "huuur" should be no prob!LOLLOL

You know, I asked a couple places about that and the general response I got was a no. They don't use salon haircolor, but they don't use straight away fabric dyes. I'm thinking what they do use is something middle ground that is a special formulation of acid dye.

Regarding tie dye:

I asked about this extensively because I'd love to paint on the dye instead of submerge it. I got a really long explanation that ended with steam setting and a bunch of stuff I didn't want to bother with.
