Hair colour help

I stupidly dyed my hair purple a few weeks ago. Hated it immediately and have since put 4 (yes four) boxes of dye remover on. My hair is now red/orange/pink/blonde at the top, and my natural brown underneath confused. Lucky it's not damaged at all. My next move is a bleach bath but I'd like some advice. Should I do the top and bottom separately? I'm guessing if it went all over it would lighten unevenly. Any tip please?

What about colourb4? I dyed mine dark purple in January and used x2 boxes of colourb4 on it to strip it out. It got some out, but it’s still darker then my roots, but better than bleach IMO?

That's what I've done 4 of grin the underneath is pretty much back to normal but the top is much lighter

What are you hoping to get out of the bleach bath? I would put an ash semi prrmanent dye if it were me.

Forgot to say I've already put a caramel semi permanent dye on but it hasn't taken at all. I'm hoping to lighten the whole lot, even it out and get rid of the red so I can put a colour over it all.

Sorry I didn’t see the crucial word ‘remover’ in your OP 🙈
I was told purple was a nightmare as it’s a mix of red & black which are hard to get out.
I’m sorry I don’t know anything about bleach baths.

Well we'll soon find out, I'm an impulsive and impatient fucker so the bleach is on. Wish me luck grin
