I'm normally on facebook find me by e-mail tangled_web666@yahoo.com  I want to dye black hair with big streaks of purple  the problem is it's been awhile since my hair was dyed (and i've never done it myself my sistere R.I.P. use to do it for me) I'm always broke anyway back to it... i've got about 2-3 inches of blonde roots that goes into my hair thats dyed black how would I go about doing that with the least amount of diffuculty steps and effort what i'm mean is a way that is "IDIOT PROOF"... yeah I know I sound lazy but i've tried to help my sister foil her hair once and i'm so uncordinated, and a perfectionist, as well as having athrists in my hands...

If it's already dyed black, you're going to have a lot of trouble getting the black out to add the streaks. There are color remover products available, but they really just don't work on black-dyed hair. More likely, they'll just severely damage your hair. If you really want the two-tone look, you'd be better off dyeing the roots purple and leaving the black alone.
And I'm going to suggest going to a professional. I know it's costly but atleast when your hair falls out from mistreatment you have some one to throw stones at.

I've thought of the possibilities if I did do it all I can picture is it totally screwing up my hair (damaging it and having that bleach-orange color that you can't fix by dyeing over it for several months) but It it has crossed my mind several times doing something like you advised dyeing the roots with a purplish-burgandy color but I'm really terrified it will look horrible and stupid to the point where I would be too embarressed. I wouldn't leave the house lol I know it's just hair and it could be fixed but i'm a broke mofo... i'm not a vane person but to me it would feel as bad as if I were in public and my pants ripped in the crouch/butt area with no underwear on and unable to run and hide to fix it or leave... don't get me wrong I get starred and pointed at in public all the time but thats because of all my tattoos, piercings, and the scars on my arms. i'm rambling sorry... didn't mean to ramble about unrelated stuff... i'm new to this site that was my firs post and your my first comment I need to learn how to stick to just the basic related to the topic reply sort and sweet... I ramble when my anxiety/bi-polor disorder is acting up .... sorry but thank you for your reply comments and advice.
