We’ve all had that moment where we’ve attempted a bold hair color, and it hasn’t quite turned out how we envisioned it. Maybe you were aiming for a vibrant green, but it looked like a swampy mess.
Whatever the case may be, you’re likely wondering if you can apply a new color over the top of your current one. Specifically, you may wonder if you can put orange hair dye over the green.
The short answer is yes, you can put orange hair dye over the green. However, it would help if you kept a few things in mind before taking the plunge.
This blog post will discuss some actionable tips and things to consider before attempting to dye your hair from green to orange.
Tip #1: Remove As Much Green As Possible
Before applying orange hair dye over your green hair, trying to remove as much of the green as possible is essential.
This can be done by washing your hair several times with a clarifying shampoo specifically designed to remove product buildup and impurities from the hair.
Try a color-correcting shampoo or treatment to help neutralize the green tones in your hair.
Tip #2: Consider Your Hair’s Condition
It’s important to consider the condition of your hair before attempting to dye it again. If your hair is damaged or weakened from previous dye jobs, adding another layer of color could cause further damage.
If your hair is in poor condition, it’s best to wait and focus on repairing and strengthening it before attempting to dye it again.
Tip #3: Choose the Right Shade of Orange
When selecting an orange hair dye, choosing the right shade for your skin tone and natural hair color is important.
A bright, vibrant orange may work well if you have fair skin and light hair. A deeper, more subdued orange may be better if you have darker skin or hair.
- You can achieve a new, bold hair color without entirely stripping your hair of its current color.
- Orange is a complementary color to green, meaning the two colors will cancel each other out to some degree, resulting in a unique shade.
- If your green hair is very dark or saturated, the orange dye may also not appear.
- If your hair is damaged or weakened from previous dye jobs, adding another layer of color could cause further damage.
In conclusion, while it is possible to put orange hair dye over green hair, there are a few things you should consider before doing so.
Removing as much green as possible, assessing the condition of your hair, and selecting the right shade of orange are all important factors to keep in mind.
As with any hair dye job, it’s important to take the time to properly prepare and care for your hair both before and after the dye job to ensure the best possible outcome.
