How To Get Silver Hair

posted in Beauty > Hair
  • Have you got dark hair and want to go silver? It will take time but it's totally worth it!

  • If you've dyed your hair a dark colour then I suggest you use a few bottles of Color B4, which you can buy online or from Boots. This will strip your hair, although not go completely blonde (a dark brown possibly) it will still help with the process. After using this it will probably make your hair a patchy colour, don't worry! It will all be worth it in the end!

    There is, of course, a risk of this not working however, I suggest you still try.

  • Although you may not want your hair growing any longer, this will help with the healing process of your hair after the stripping of your hair colour. This will bring back moisture to your hair therefore letting you move onto the next step much quicker. You can get this from Boots also. I suggest leaving this treatment on for a couple of hours so it really treats your hair, also, using a plastic bag you should wrap it around your hair causing the heat from your head to lock in the moisture of the treatment.

  • Now you have moisturised hair, time to dye your hair blonde, I recommend using Live XXL 00A Platinum Blonde because I have experience using this dye on brown hair and it lifts the colour extremely well, personally. This will damage your hair so when you've finished, use your Lee Stafford treatment and after a few hours of leaving the treatment on your hair, it should feel luscious again. If one bottle of dye hasn't lifted your hair to a bright blonde then I suggest repeating this step until it has, with 2 weeks in between each try. This dye has lightening agents however, you can use bleach

  • This is a very important step. When you have your blonde hair, you should use this toner on your hair for a number of hours every day to cancel out the yellow and orange tones, this will dry out your hair but you'll be fine with your Lee Stafford treatment. You need to use this step otherwise your hair won't be white enough to put the silver on. Although the bottle tells you otherwise, I suggest you use this every day for a couple of hours to get faster results.

    Warning- you may cause purple tones running through your hair, although I believe this is a bonus.

  • Finally, when you have white enough hair you'll be able to put your silver toner on your hair. I suggest using Directions Silver Toner as this is the one where I personally have gotten the best results. Although the tub tells you to leave on for 15 minutes, I suggest that if you want a dark purple/silver hair, to leave on for 2 hours.

    Warning- you may get purple tones running through your hair, although I believe this is a bonus.

  • You can also put other colours through your silver hair such as pink and purple which I believe looks beautiful.

    Warning- silver toner doesn't last forever therefore you'll need to top up every few weeks.

  • I am not a professional hair dresser, although this worked for me, it may not work for you.
