I bleached my hair yesterday and today I am planning to buy a permenant dye to go over the top. I am going to Spain one month from today and am planning to swim. My sister told me that red dye will fade in the pool and that I will be better off with blonde, because after it’s been in a month it won’t be affected by the chlorine.
I’ve been googling it a little bit and some sites say dyed blonde hair can always be affected by chlorine, even if you wait a while. I haven’t really found much about red dye. I’d rather have faded red hair than blonde-turned-green hair, I guess! But will it not matter what goes on the top because it’ll be the bleach I already have that counts?
I already read some other tips on here about putting fresh water on your hair first and washing straight after you get out of the pool and I plan to do that, but I was just wondering if there are any colours less likely to be affected. I don’t really care what colour I dye it, as long as it won’t go green!
