Re-dyeing Hair

So recently, about a month ago, I got my hair dip dyed blue. I had to use bleach as my hair is naturally a very dark brown. It has now unfortunately turned a weird ash greeny-grey colour and I really want to put a purple on the end of my hair now. I am wondering what product I should use. Would a colour remover work or would I have to go full on bleach to get it back to a light enough colour to put more colour on?

Have you ever considered hair chalk?

You really should stop monkeying with your hair and let your natural color grow out. Hair dyes and bleaches damage your hair, especially if used too close together time-wise. Get to like your natural color - that's what nature gave you. For odd colors you can use the temporary colors sold for Halloween costume effects, or hair chalks as the other TF member suggested.

When my son was dying his hair wild colours, we found good hair dye at places at like skateboard shops because the usual hair salons did not have those sorts of colours. If you live in a city, you may have salons that cater to wild colours. I understand what you are saying about the faded blue, as that happened to my son's hair as well after some time. Since the blue has faded, and some time has passed, it may be alright to re-dye your hair with another colour.

I quite routinely colour my hair blond over my previous dye job, of the same colour, as I am lightening my hair and covering up grey. I do this every three months or so, occasionally oftener. To be safe, you should consult a professional hair stylist. However, if you are willing to live with more random results, and your hair is in good condition to start, you might just give it a whirl.

If the ends have faded a lot and you are changing to a deep vivid purple you should be fine. If you are doing a lavender, try a hot oil treatment on the colored part followed by a thorough shampoo to remove even more of the old color before proceeding. You can always try a little of the new color on a little bit of hair that you can easily see before you color it all, to preview the color results. Since it's the ends that are colored, Also make sure to get regular trims, because the lightened ends will become more porous over time and grab and hold all the different colors. Since it's the ends, have fun, change is only a trim away!
