Getting Dyed Hair Back to Normal?

Last year, I started dyeing my dark brown hair a light blonde. Whenever I dye my hair, it gets lots of orangy tints, no matter what color I dye it. Later, I tried dyeing my hair a color close to my natural color, but it turned purple and then turned orange again. What do I do? I don't wanna dye my hair any more colors. I just want my normal color back!

Appears you are done with experimenting! Natural hair structure varies so not all hair types accept dye "as advertised". DIY hair dye companies market hair dye that produces results that are similar for most people, but not all. You may be in the "not all" category.

Suggest you make an appointment with a hair color specialist to analyze your hair type and recommend a hair product that will dye your hair a color nearest your own.


The stylist can then dye your hair and work with you to eventually grow out your natural color hair. This will take time!

My issue is reversed. My former stylist colored my hair back to normal, or so he said. I was blonde before that. My natural is like a dark brown with slight reddish tones. He didn't add the reddish tones in, but added gold tones instead. I hate gold tones and hated this. A friend suggested blue black for me, so I did that.


It's been about two months now, and I look so facial tone...that it's not even funny. I just want to get back to my dark brown/slight red color. Heck, I would be happy with just dark brown. I would have it done professionally. Is this possible? I can't go around, looking like a ghost.
