Hey everyone,

After many hours searching the net I finally found this site...

I am a natural blonde and dyed my hair red, then purple, then brown and eventually blue black. Now I want to go back up to red...

I went to the hairdresser today and they quoted me well over 100 to strip the colour. From there I went to Sally's and bought the Goldwell Color Remover, I also have a dark plum dye ready to colour my hair again after I have removed the black.

I have been washing my hair in washing up liquid for the last three weeks and some of it has lifted to a dark brown but most of it is still black, apart from approx 1 inch of blonde roots.

I read the instructions and they said that after I have rinsed the color remover off to add 10% developer for 3 minutes, so I bought that too.

I'm thinking about stripping the colour then leaving in treatment conditioner over night and then colouring with the red the next day.

Has anyone used these colour remover kits before to go from black to red?

Any advice would be truly appreciated

Thanks :)
