I bought a different brand of hair dye and apparently they put the wrong color in the wrong box because the color came out a completely different shade. I wanted a soft golden brown and what I got was blackish purple! I tried to tone it down with another color, but what I got was a very dark brown with a very bright red tint. I like to have natural looking hair and this is anything but natural.
Other than cheap and stripping shampoos, is there anything I can do without ruining my hair? I normally use a shade very close to my natural color so I can go long periods of time before having to dye it again. I have dyed my hair twice in the last week and I am getting very nervous. I really don't want to have to wait for this to grow out. Help?
See a professional, take the boxes with you, if you still have them. If you keep going, it will be green or broken off all over!
There is a product you can buy maybe at a sally's store that takes the color out. I had it done at a salon and it was pretty expensive. I have seen the product on line too, just can't remember the name.
My mom's hair is dark brown with grays. Two months ago I dyed her hair chocolate brown. I used hazelnut 7.3 for the roots and very light blonde 9.0 for the rest of her hair from Koleston and I got the color perfect. Though, my mom wished if she could have had a darker tone of that chocolate brown.
Last night I dyed my mom's hair with following with the aim of getting a darker chocolate brown; gray blonde 7.1 for roots and light blonde 8.0 for rest of her hair, I got the rest of the hair fine, but unfortunately I got greenish light brown roots. So which color should I apply for roots to fix it to match the chocolate brown of the rest of her hair?
I have not tried this, but I read that massaging ketchup into the roots and letting it sit 30 minutes will cancel out the green. Good luck.
My hair was bleached blonde. I tried to dye it medium blonde, but it turned gray. What do I do? Please help. LOL
