Fixing Hair Dye Mistake

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.
