Natural Ombre Rescue Mission - Ash Brown Without Bleach
To illustrate what I mean.................
My hair is quite damaged from bleaching it to the light blonde last year and I really didn't want to go through all of that again. However, I still wanted a neutral brown as opposed to the coppery/red that we always get from DIY dyes. There's no permanent way to achieve this without bleaching because Asian hair tends to have a lot of orange/red pigments in it.
After discussing with my stylist, we decided to go down the route of toning to neutralize the copper tones instead of bleaching them out. Because there's 3 colors in my hair, each section had to be treated differently.
The black roots and medium brown sections had to be lifted to a light copper brown and copper dye was applied to the bleached ash hair to neutralize it so I can have a uniform color in the end. After all that, toner was added to each section to cancel out copper/orange tones to achieve a neutral ash brown.
The color pigments deposited by toners aren't permanent and will eventually wash out. This is the only way to get any sort of ash tone without bleach :)
Many thanks to my wonderful stylist Khoi for the awesome job. He is the one that did my life changing bob cut and now the only person I trust to cut my hair right. Bang cuts were always nerve racking for me but that is now a thing of the past :p
