Hey ladies, so I have bleached hair with a brown semi permanent dye over it. Unfortunately, the color that my stylist dyed it is too dark and I want it a lot lighter. So my questions are will i be able to use another semi permanent color in a few weeks to lighten it? Will it fade to the bleached color it was before the due? Thanks for any help!
Your bleached hair is most likely stained from the dark dye used on it, but if you use a shampoo like Tresemme or Pantene, something NOT sulfate free, your color will fade a lot faster since you're using semi permanent dye. Once you get the color you like, I'd switch over to Infusium 23's Color Defender shampoo and conditioner set to keep your color stronger and lasting longer. At least this was my personal experience... (I had completely bleached hair and dyed it blue with semi permanent dyes). Hope this helped! :)

Semi permanent color fades sooo quick, especially if it was bleached before.
I'd recommend washing it frequently and go heavy on conditioners. Moiture fills the hair cuticle, therfore pushing out color.
Also don't do another color. Color on top of color only goes darker. To get it lighter let it fade or your other option is bleach and I would only recommend that if its a LOT darker than you want. If that is the case go to your hair stylist and ask for a soap cap or bast as I know it to be called. It's a bleach/shampoo mixture that will zap the color right out.
Hope that helps! :)

If you just want the color to fade into a lighter shade, I would just use clarifying shampoo, it works wonderfully at rinsing out hair color! I've used Ion's Clarifying Shampoo from Sally's and it helped me out quite a bit in a similar situation. The semipermanent dye should start fading on its own quite quickly though. good luck.
Baking soda mixed with your shampoo will help pull some color out. Just super condition after, it can be exceptionally drying.
Colour will not lift colour. As you wash your hair the colour will start to fade anyway, to the shade you wanted in the first place. Next time you go for a colour job, you may want to ask your colourist to colour your hair lighter than you think you want.
