Toning Down A Bad Dye Job

I just dyed my hair too light of a blonde shade. I want to tone it down naturally. Suggestions?

Well, you could buy one of those shampoos that are used to highlight hair. If you use the kind for redheads it will give a glowy reddish blonde, or brunette. It will impart an ashier blonde. Trust me, these will work and will not look garish. They wash out. (07/26/2009)

So I should get a shampoo such as John Freda for red heads? Not brunette? (07/27/2009)

My sister did this and she used some cold coffee, and another time she used tea. I don't know the amounts but that kind of makes sense since it stains clothing. Her hair was dyed blonde too. (07/29/2009)

This sounds really weird, but it was told to me from a customer help line from a hair coloring company. Wash your hair with dishwasher detergent, and keep your eyes closed! Another tip - use dandruff shampoo; it also will tone down a color. (07/29/2009)

My daughter used to end up with "weird" colors when younger. We found the best way to correct the color until a good amount of time went by before using chemical colors again. She would use a Henna color product from the health food store. It is natural, nothing harsh to continue damaging your hair. Many places carry Henna color now since it can be used by pregnant women also. (08/01/2009)

Make a shampoo cocktail with Ice Cream 7/0, 20 volume, shampoo and water (approx 1oz of each). Mix together and shampoo damp hair with this. Leave it in 5 or 10 minutes and wash out and condition. This will tone the hair down nicely without a lot of drying. (08/05/2009)

Fanci-full Rinses by Roux are cheap and easy to use. You just squirt them on after shampooing, and comb through. They come in many shades, and are sold at Walmart and all beauty-supply shops. A nice blond shade is Bashful Blond. For brassiness, White Minx. (08/23/2009)
