I have gray roots and streaks thru my hair. I had silver highlights done; they are dark blond. I do not like having three colors of hair dark, gray, and now yellow. How do I get rid of the yellow at age 60?

Put a semipermanent color in your brown shade. The highlights will be a lighter brown and look nice.

I have naturally dark brown/black hair. I bleached it and put bright red highlights in it and it looks terrible. I tried a dark brown dye and it made the red less bright, but all together it's still there! What now? Should I keep dyeing it or is bleach the only way out?

Over-treated hair can get brittle and can break off. As Dinah said, please see someone qualified before you do anything else. They can rescue it for you.

I just had a shampoo cap service at the salon. I want the reddish color out of my hair quick for a wedding. I'm tired of going to the salon because I never get what I want. I understand it's a process, but I'm aiming to go from this brassy red color to a medium, not dark brown color.

A friend/hairdresser is willing to do a color correction.


Will this work? Because in the salon, the brown dye did not take very well after the shampoo cap. I'm wondering why no one suggests a color correction. Going back to a salon is not an option for me because they're not doing what I want. Any suggestions?

I would at least go back to the salon to get a refund, as they did not do what you asked for. Hopefully you will have better luck with your friend.

Do get a refund, then try to use a medium ash blond colour on top of your reddish tones to even it out.
