Hunting the Unicorn (Not Quite Update)

Title: Hunting the Unicorn
Fandoms: Glee, heavily influenced by The Last Unicorn
Author: crossoverqueen
Pairings: Kurt/Blaine, the Warblers, and ND. Started out Kurt-centric, now it's fully Klaine-centric.
Rating: T
Word Count: Unknown but probably in the 100,000s by now.
Warnings: Swearing (mostly because they're teens), emotional neglect, implied depression, implied PTSD, implied fears of sexual assault, physical assault, and don't count on there not being actual sexual assault later on. Also, Kurt and Blaine desperately need therapy and hugs.
Spoilers: Spoilers for Prom Queen and New York. Otherwise, very firmly AU by now.
Summary: "Here is there, and high is low; all may be undone. What is true, no two men know; what is gone is gone." Fairy-tale romances are harder to live through than you'd think.
Author's Note: I have about six new chapters by now, but they were only updated on Fanfiction.Net and Archive of Our Own. MAJOR brain-fart, sorry. Also, totally doesn't help that real life kept me from updating for nearly two years.

I'll update it properly on LJ later on, but for now here's the whole story on Fanfiction.Net.

Hair dye removal

The beginning of March was the last time I dyed the under layer of my hair using Manic Panic (I think it was either Atomic Turquoise or Voodoo Blue, I have both), I started in November. Since I don't bleach and I just dyed over my natural strawberry blonde hair, the color faded from a turquoise to a green in a few weeks, and is now a not so flattering light algae green that will not leave my hair.

I have tried:

  • vitamin C + dandruff shampoo

  • baking soda + dandruff shampoo

  • regular, sulfate shampoo

  • soaking in bath salts for an hour + at a time

  • and of course not redyeing it since March

The only thing that has been the least effective has been the bath salts, but that really wrecks havoc on my hair until I wash it at least three times after.

I usually use a paraben free, sulfate free, fairly natural shampoo and conditioner, which has probably contributed to the dye sticking around so long, ironically.

A few years back I dyed it a turquiose color, I think it was SFX, which came out green. I had tried to get rid of it with one of those Color Oops kind of kits, which had worked well at getting out red dyes for me before, and it did nothing. Apparently blue based dyes either hate my hair and refuse to take (which has happened before) or they stick around forever. I had to bleach the green out last time, but I'm not willing to do that again.

Does anyone have any suggestions for things I can try? I'm so tired of this dye at this point. I want to be able to dye it another color without the green affecting the outcome and I'd like to be able to put my hair up again without the few inches of new growth and the sickly color showing.

I am out of ideas besides dyeing over it, though I don't really want to use a harsh dye. I am considering henna, does anyone have experience hennaing directly over an unnatural color? I've hennaed before just over my natural hair and over a dye mimicking my natural color that I had over the still bleached half of my hair. If henna is a viable option, can anyone recommend some good online sites to buy from? Even better if they give examples of how the color might turn up over different hair shades.
