    Hey ENFPs! Fashion advice needed!

    I've wanted blue hair forever, not just one color blue, but maybe an ombre of blues or something. But because my hair takes a VERY long time to grow and because it's my main attractive feature, I've been too scared.

    I recently dyed it red with henna and it looks REALLY pretty. Everyone has commented how natural I look at a redhead. I like it a lot.

    But I've started looking at blue hair again....I want blue hair. But I don't want to ruin my hair with bleach if I'm not going to like it on me! I'm also a little bit afraid of the attention blue hair might bring. Like yeah, sometimes I like attention, but sometimes I just want to run into a store and back out without putting on makeup and having no one notice.

    Does anyone have advice? I'm afraid if I dye my hair I'll regret it but....I'll also regret it if I never get it done. Which is the bigger risk?

    Don't dye your hair if you aren't willing to cut it off if it does go wrong.

    I used to dye my hair blue all the time. It's a difficult colour to get right. It fades to green fast (blue dyes just seem to wash out quickest for some reason) depending on the base colour you dye it on. I always dyed it on top of yellow bleached hair and/or green.

    The thing that I liked about having blue hair is that you don't need to make an effort with what you wear because you will naturally have a unique style no matter what you throw on. I like the attention though.

    I stopped dying it because my hair was damaged beyond repair so I let it grow out then cut it all off.

    Get it professionally bleached and dyed if you can, it'll make a world of difference.

    My word of warning is: if you did not use 100% pure untainted henna plant powder from a reputable dealer, you're running a big risk that other chemicals used in the "henna" mix will (literally) melt your hair off when combined either with the bleach needed to lighten your hair for the blue, or the blue dye itself. I've heard of an unfortunately high number of cases of this happening when questionably sourced henna was involved (including a traumatized hair dresser who had no idea that impure henna mixes could do that). Counterfeiting reputable henna brands is pretty big business - some fraudulent companies actually copy the packaging of reputable henna brands almost exactly, and sell chemical henna mixes as pure henna, so be careful.

    If you're not sure if the henna you bought/used was 100% pure high-grade henna, you can test a small section of hair with the dye and see if you notice any ill effects with the dye and/or bleach. If no ill effects, you may be safe to start jumping through the hoops of henna removal.

    Assuming you did get pure, high-grade henna, bleaching pure henna out is a tricky undertaking all on its own. Henna binds to your hair differently than traditional dye, and as a hapless friend of mine put it, "You are wed to henna." As a result, you will probably have to go to some more radical removal measures than you would with regular dye (even that isn't a guarantee of getting enough of it out).

    Then there's the whole separate case of what FF said about getting the right blues and maintaining them.

    I don't think you should give up your dream of blues, but I do think that if it were me I'd leave the henna be for a while yet. It looks great on you. Have you considered giving blue and red a trial run? It would let you experiment with blues while not fretting about bleaching your whole head of the henna.


    Also, this is a great resource for henna-heads: https://forums.longhaircommunity.com

    They have a whole section dedicated to maintenance, hues, and correct, safe removal for henna.
