Hey guys. I dyed my hair today for the first time (from natural darkish brown which looks FUGLY as hell in the sun, to jet black). Seeming it was my first time I found it reasonably easy and thats kind of the reason I opted for a black semipermanent dye because if I messed up somehow I could wash it out reasonably quick and it wouldnt look to strange.

Anyways, I'm looking for a permanent / semipermanent dye thats a non-natural colour (Perhaps blue). Seeing my hair is darkish, I've read online that I'd need to bleach it first. There is no way I'm gonna mess around with the bleach so the dye would need to have bleach or something pre-mixed into it. 

So do any of you know where I can get something that meets these needs in Auckland? I don't really want to order it online just incase something happens. How much does it usually cost to get this done in a hair salon or something?

Looks pretty black to me. You won't ever get a super-permanent colour as your hair grows, you will have to continue to touch up.

I would say talk to a hair expert as they will know exactly what's good and what's not:)

Yeh I know it will grow out, we always give my mates crap about it because a few of them have natural ginger or blond hair and sometimes you see a big re-growth patch in middle of haid

I went through this phase when I was 17 - for a bleach and colour, I think it cost me around $80 to get it done professionally by a hairdresser.

I think they will cost quite a bit.first they have to remove the colour by bleach or chemical product.then they will apply the desire colour which u want.also depend on which salon u wanna go,eg. Hairport may cost $60 to $80 .Rodneyways may cost $120 to $200..Ect..

If u did permanant colour then doing the colour removal plus another permamant colour,your hair will be very pourous and damaged.

Nah I did just a temporary. How much does it cost just to get it bleached? Because if I did that only, then went and brought colour dye and dyed it at home myself I could save quite a lot.

Hair dye = hair die. Say no to nasty chemicals on hair.
