    Default Temporary hair color

    Can someone recommend me a way to dye dark blonde hair temporarily strawberry blonde? Think slightly less red than Shir Shomron.
    I really love the color that a weak henna and cassia mix can yield, and I would have done it by now if it wasnít because Iím afraid I would change my mind later or be too lazy to get my new growth done. I use dye-released cassia and orange juice to make my hair more golden, but I want more gold/red than that. Iíve considered rhubarb root too, but yet, itís not going to be reddish, just very golden.
    So can you recommend a temporary strawberry blonde dye, thatís actually temporary and non-damaging, even in blonde hair? I donít need to lift any color, my hair is already light enough

    Both of these products are temporary with no peroxide so they won't lift your color or damage your hair. The first one is much cheaper and works just as well. Ignore the color in the link and just pick the color you would use.

    Ion - Color Brilliance - Ion Color Brilliance Semi Med. Red Brown

    Clairol Professional - Beautiful Collection - Beautiful Collection Semi-Permanent Ha****lor


    ETA: In the second link you will have to replace the '****' with 'i r c o' (without the spaces) because of our filter.

    I second the ION color. Its what im using though dark blonde light brown, to covered up some blue from the indigo that wont leave me alone.

    Why would it filter that? I write ha****lor all the time, besides its not a cuss or dirty word,...is it?

    ETA: ok, maybe I write hair color...anyways why is it a bad word here?

    It's not a bad word that we're editing . . . we're trying to prevent hotlinking to TOS so as not to rile them up.

    Several of our members were hotlinking from their albums there to here and it was the easiest way to take care of the issue without trying to police the whole forum and check each and every picture to make sure it wasn't hotlinked from TOS.

    Thank you for the recommendations.
    I couldn’t find a strawberry blonde ion color though And isn’t semi permanent rather... permanent? I’m afraid it would stick to my very fine, blonde hair even though it’s not a permanent color

    Copy/pasting a direct link, so when you click it it takes you to a picture (or video or whatever) hosted on another site.

    The only other thing I can think of is a dye like Manic Panic or Directions mixed with conditioner which would give a slight tint. It would be temporary and safe but there would be no real way of knowing how bright the colour would come out until the end. Also, it might look less natural due to the dyes usually being rather bright.

    Agree with the last post. I recommend you try a dilution of, say Manic Panic Tiger Lily. Try one tablespoon with enough conditioner to cover your head. Manic Panic has no staying power what so ever, I've used their Cotton Candy Pink and Mystic Heather (both diluted) and they washed out quickly.
