I finally told myself it was time to try green hair! I've done turquoise before, but have been a little nervous to do green. I didn't want it to look like pool water. I am very happy with how it turned out! Here's some info on the process I used to achieve this look.
First I put the bleach on my roots that had grown out. Then with the extra bleach I had I started at the very bottom of my hair and worked it up a little with my hands.
The tips bleached out very quickly so I rinsed the bottom out with cold water then let my roots sit a few more minutes. After they were done I washed all my of hair and dried it.
Then I used RAW's Deep Purple and mixed it with a little conditioner to lighten it and applied that to my roots. I kind of feathered it down the hair so there wouldn't be a harsh line. I did the same with the bottom (just worked my way up instead) and used Special Effects Iguana Green.
Here's a shot of it in the sunlight! I love how the green tone looks! I am kind wanting to go all over green now. Hehe. I do think these color combinations will look better when I curl my hair. So I'm going to try that next.
