Ok guys I'm not an experienced uhm dyer I've got a sort of stupid question. So I previously dyed some "Malaysian" hair red. Like a semi-bright red.. Not too bright but still eye catching. but I've recently gotten bored of the colour and want to dye it a darker red like a plum colour.. My question is to get the colour I want, will I have to bleach the hair to strip it of it's semi bright red colour first before dying it the darker colour!? I would've posted this in the hair dye section but I clocked there aren't really regular posters there's and I kind of need an answer fast :(

i am no expert either but I would sugest that you test both methods on a small piece of hair and then decide Smile

If you want a deeper color, you just be depositing more tones. Just put it on top. What did you use the first time around?

It joulsey be fine to just put the color you want on top. Bleaching it will eat up the hair. Red is a pain to get rid of

If it were me.. I'd try to bleed out some of the existing red, first.  You're more likely to end up with the result you want.  Try this - fill a sink with very very warm water, add some baking soda (not a TON just like a tablespoon or so... it is clarifying).  Immediately add an equal amount of vinegar - it will bubble like mad; not to worry; it's reacting with the baking soda.  It will help draw out the red color into the water.  Remove the unit after the water gets cool.  Rinse really well, deep condition (don't skip that part!) and then recolor.  This won't hurt the hair; baking soda is a little drying, but conditioning will take care of that.

Throw some Loreal hi lift in deep auburn on there with 20 vol for 30 minutes......never rebleach to go darker.....its a wasted....cause you're basically redepositing that red that your took off right back on.
