Fix for Hair Dye Disaster?

Fix for Hair Dye DisasterI'm a natural golden blonde. I dyed my hair a very light blonde (permanent hair box dye) in February and my roots are gray, yuck (I'm 40), so I found myself dyeing it every 3 weeks. This past week I got tired of the bright yellow and wanted a honey color. It was brown within 30 seconds and then became greenish through the week. I dyed it last night and it's grayish/gold/blue. Can someone help me?

You need to go to a professional. If money is an issue, go to a beauty school. The students are carefully supervised.

I once bleached my naturally curly hair too much and I looked like a dandelion. I started trying to get my natural dark blonde back and went from nearly black to a strawberry blonde, which I liked, but I found that even permanent hair color will wash out. Still, permanent color changes your hair so I finally just let it grow out.


Bleaching has to grow out. Try some hair setting mousse with color, like Fanci-ful's color mousse. It washes out, so if you don't like it, you don't have to keep it, and even if you do, you'll need to use it every time you wash your hair. My gray is nearly white now, but the mousse covers it up temporarily.

I've also used some of the different root cover-ups (Clairol, L'oreal) with good results.

Lol I can help you. First of all we need to establish what color you are trying to be. Then Ill try to walk you thru a basic solution.

First off, get a bowl and mix 2 tspspoons of baking soda, with 1 tablespoon of any clear shampoo. For extra.. add a few draws of dawn soap. Use with warm water.


Second we need to balance your head, so if your color is blue, we will use color theory to correct the blue. This will work best with a color toner or toner conditioner.

What is blues complimentary color? Orange? And what is greens? Red? So if I were you, Id look for an orange and a red toner, mix 2-1 more orange than red, add to a serving of conditioner, rinse with cold water.
