Answered by a 10 yr. Cosmetologist. The answer is no, a medium ash blonde will not cover
a deep red color. Since the color of red you described is deep, the ash blonde will do absolutely nothing for you. Medium blonde whether ash or not is too light to do anything. If you are looking to get rid of that deep red, keep in mind that red is one of the hardest colors to get out of hair
. The molecules are large making it the hardest color to get in and once its in due to the size of the molecule is what makes it hard to get out. It sounds like you will need to lift the hair
first to get out of the deep red stage. I would need to know if it is a brown red, red violet, and what level of darkness it is. Also, is the medium ash blonde your target color? Please know color does not lift color. So if your goal is the med. ash blonde you are looking at to two step process of lifting out of the deep red and then depositing your desired color. You can make a mixture of bleach, developer and shampoo (known as a soap cap). You will need heat such as a dryer to kick it into gear to break that deep red. In between these stages you will want to use a very good conditioner to help cut the damage on the hair
. You may also want to invest in a keratin spray -in conditioner. Keratin is what our hair is made of and gives it
strength since bleaching will break the hair
down somewhat. The hair
needs to be lifted high enough past the red/orange stage. If it is not lifted far enough, the color you put back on may not turn out and will still have a reddish possibly orange undertone.
