Problems Dyeing Hair at Home

A friend told me that in order to get my hair the color that I wanted, which was brown that I would have to lift my hair color. So I lifted it and my hair turned blonde. Then I added a brown hair color because that's the color I want. My hair turned a shade of reddish blonde. How do I get my hair back to the brown color that I wanted?

This red must be lifted off and the brown applied. You also need to condition your hair, since it looks damaged. Do a strand test first so you dont have the wrong color.

Your hair is badly damaged now.

  1. Before doing much else with your hair you will need to do a lot of conditioning in order to repair the damage that is already done.
  2. Ad

  3. I would remove the hair dye with with baking soda and a anti-dandruff shampoo. Mix this together and lather up your hair. Leave this in your hair for a few minutes before you rinse it with hot water. Repeat this for a few days to remove the dye from your hair.
  4. In between shampooing you will need to apply olive oil or baby oil to your hair at night and sleep with a plastic night cap. You have to repair your hair damage before dying your hair another color.
  5. You can also use equal parts of white vinegar and water on your hair. Apply the mixture and cover your hair for 30 minutes. Then rinse with hot water, shampoo and heavy condition your hair.
  6. Before attempting to dye your hair again at home go to a salon and talk with an expert. Find out what they will say to you and what is the best way to get the color you want.

Wrong hair color.

Step 1
You will need to bleach out that color.

Step 2


It is quite damaged so I would put olive oil on your hair with a shower cap and sleep that way.

Step 3
After bleaching or lifting the color with a remover do a strand test on your hair first.

Step 4
You might want to consult with a professional before you do anymore damage.
