Bleached black hair blonde--now orange--now what?
Asked Jan 2, 2009, 05:33 PM
I just used Clairol's Born Blonde Maxi lightener. I DID do a strand test and after the maximum time (I went 95 mins), my hair is blonde from the roots to about 3 inches down, and the rest is orange (looks like an orangatangue's fur! )
I've searched some sites and see some conflicting advice. Some say to bleach a second time, others suggest going right to a toner (in my case an ash blonde) to rid the orange-ness. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what did you do for a happy ending?
Thanks so much in advance!
