I need advice from QUALIFIED HAIRDRESSERS PLEASE!
I’m a student hairdresser with 3 years experience but I need a bit of guidance and advice…
I have a client who cheated and box coloured her hair. She is a natural level 7-8 and I used to bleach her regrowth and tone her to as white as possible.
So one day a few months ago she comes up and says that she’s SERIOUSLY considering coloring it black. So I told her to think about it and I said I would do it for her. So, instead of getting back tome she went ahead and box colored it.
Apparently she has only colored it twice…and now she wants it gone. We don’t have a goal colour yet but I did offer to come over and do a strand test for her for no charge and see what our possibilities were before we went ahead with anything.
Question #1 - What colour removers should I use? I’m not familiar with any professional color strippers. I’m going to be just stripping out as much color as I can on a strand of her hair, and perhaps also doing a bleach cleanse after.
Question #2 - Is this even safe, or possible? Considering that she’s bleached white underneath those layers of black colour.
Question #3 - If this is possible - how should I go about the process? Should I go see her weekly/fortnightly etc to do a cleanse as she hydrates her hair? Or is this more of a use a stripper once and see where it takes us kinda situation? I’ve never done a color correction so intense before.
I think we are preferably going to try and get as light as we can before we decide on a goal colour here :\ she’s not too sure what colour she wants but all she knows is that she doesn’t want black hair anymore. Advice please!!! <3
