Hair Turned Pink when Dyed? - pinkish hue to hairI used to use henna and it wasn't staying as long as I liked so this lady at Sally's said I could use Clairol's Beautiful, it was a rinse so my hair wouldn't turn a funny color. Wrong! Now my hair is a bit pink and copper and a little purple. I want my brown back what can I do? I used Suyra cream henna before I tried this Clairol Beautiful.

There are a few things you can do to try and remove the color from your hair. One is to use dandruff shampoo to clean your hair. What you will do is use a 1 to 1 ratio of baking soda and dandruff shampoo. Wash your hair and leave this on for a few minutes before washing it out. This is one of the best ways to get the temporary color out of your hair and get it back to the original color that you want.

WOW!! I love the color!! My hair is so icky and mousy that I would love to be able to have something like that!! Sorry you are not happy with it!

Hair health is really important so please contact a professional before you do any more DIY fixes. They may tell you to leave it be for a few weeks and let it rest (not sure how much you have done to your hair before, but your hair looks like mine--thinnish which usually means fragile.). That is what I gather from the photos--so if I am wrong, I apologize.

The other thing I suggest is to tell the Clairol people you were unhappy with their product and what it did. They really can't DO anything about that...but they may give you a refund.

Hope you find a good solution!!

I have bright pink hair at my roots and almost a rose gold color underneath. I want rose gold. I need to change this bright pink. I am thinking I should use a toner, but I don't want to go darker then rose gold.

Should I use silver or blonde? I'm lost; please help!

You want to lift off the color you don't want before you apply the new color.

Step 1
Start with a clarifying shampoo, which will fade the color.

Step 2
If that doesn't work, go to a beauty supply store and buy a color remover kit.

Step 3
You can also use a soap cap or bleach bath, which is made from clarifying shampoo, a scoop of prepared bleach, and a little conditioner, leaving it on 5-15 minutes.

Step 4
Finish with a hot oil treatment.

I just came home from the beauty salon very unhappy. I had a touch up and highlights. I have burgundy colored hair with blonde highlights. After having this done the blonde portion came out pink. The hair colorist put a glaze over the blonde, as a result my hair is a very dark copper. What should she have done and why did this happen?

I'm a hairdresser. Firstly she should put the hilights in at the start. before the overall color, then applied the dark red in between. That way they both take at the same time and the result would of been better. As the glaze wash, that was because it was dark pink and she has used an ash to counteract the red tones and it has ended up pink.

A glaze is a fancy word for a toner. A great tip she should of told you is never mix blond and red together it looks ridiculous. Maybe burgundy and bright red copper sounds better so don't worry.

How do I get my hair copper? I did a blonde balayage a couple of months ago from my natural brunette. I was blonde with smudged brunette roots. I decided to do a copper color because I thought it would be easy. I usually go to the salon, but this seemed easy. Well it turned a dark coppery pink :( How do I fix this? I don't have money to see my stylist. In pictures it's fine but in person it's so pink.

There are several ways you can try to remove the color from your hair.

Baking soda and shampoo works great to get rid of the dye in your hair. You will need to mix the two together to shampoo your hair with.

Use vitiam C tablets and hot water to make a paste. Apply this to your hair.

Equal parts of white vinegar and water is yet another way to remove the dye from your hair.

I would go to a beauty school to fix this. The prices are reasonable and the students are carefully supervised.

From the colour I'm seeing here in your photo, you don't need to do any colour stripping or bleaching. You can just get a nice lighter shade of copper and put it all over and it will even it out. You can do a semi permanent to be safe.

Lime Crime has some good colours and you can just put it on without a developer. Now, if you think this shade you have now is too dark, you will have to do a colour strip. Try Color Oops -- available at Target.

I went in to have my roots touched up blonde. Roots are blonde. Much of the rest of my hair is not! It turned rose-gold. She said it is impossible to remove. I have to wait until it grows out. So she added highlights! I'm very unhappy!
