Hi. I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk to you about dyeing your hair silver. Silver is a very difficult color to get into the hair. Because it's really a blue-gray and silver is very metallic looking so when you try to get your hair to look metallic it's not really going to work. But if you try to attempt it this is what you're going to want to do. You're going to want to pre-lighten your hair and that means using a lightener or a bleach with a very or fairly high volume of peroxide probably 20, 30, 40, somewhere in there. You're going to want to apply that to the areas where you want to be silver. And bring it up extremely light. Probably about this light which you see here. Now this model actually has a silver color on her strands of blond and as you can see it's not silver at all. Because the highlight itself was not bought up light enough, it was more on the yellow side. So when we put that silver on really what it did was it just toned out the yellow. So then what I would probably recommend is using a direct dye or a true semi permanent color. Something like Manic Panic or something of that type of thing. And you would then apply that to the hair. Now that's a direct dye so all it's really going to do is coat that hair but its going to coat it enough where you might get that metallic look. If you're trying to do this for like Halloween or something around that thing then I would probably recommend like a spray. Something that you spray and it's going to make the hair more silvery. Cause silver is a very difficult color to achieve in the hair.
