Thus, pre-bleaching is something inevitable if you go for dye, not for alternative hair coloring techniques.

FAQ: Blue And Purple Hair
What color does blue hair fade to?
If your hair is bleached and you use a semi-permanent dye, it can last for months. Bright color washes out quickly and you are left with the light blue shade which is the hardest one to get out of hair. Eventually it fades to a green pastel color. You can fix it by using purple shampoo every time it starts to turn green. Just do not use it too often.
How to get rid of blue and purple hair?
It is a complicated process which requires several salon appointments. It includes color corrections, bleach washes, bleaching roots so the washed out pastel color blends in better. You can wash your hair at home with a mix of vitamin c tablets and dandruff shampoo, use oils and hair masks to lighten the color.
