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!

I have natural dark brunette hair. When I was little it was dark brown almost black and as I am growing up it had changed to more of a dark brown with random sun kissed blonde streaks here and there. I decided a few months ago to dye my hair with the super market stuff, around the same colour just hiding all the blonde streaks. It was a good colour and I was happy with it, but now it's been a few months and it's fading into a horrible rusty, orange, light brown and I absolutely hate it! I have regrowth and it's so noticeable that this is not my hair colour.

I want to be able to get rid of this awful colour preferably without cutting, bleaching, or redyeing. I have tried anti dandruff shampoo, baking soda, and swimming and neither work and if they have I'm seeing very slow results. I read on another website that using bath salts is a good way to get out hair dye and it works best with purples. I am unsure to try this as my hair is brown and I don't want to change my natural hair colour. Do you have any tips or methods I could do, at home that wouldn't damage my hair or cause me to re dye it?

I also advise going to a hairdresser. However, I think you may find that by ruling out cutting, bleaching, or re-dying, you have eliminated all possible methods.

So basically I wanted to dye the tips of my hair blue. I used a wash out blue dye, but before that I used L'oreal Colo Rista Blond Platine to lighten the tips so I could get the blue to show more.

The blue turned out super wierd so I washed it off and now there is this light darkish brown on the tips of my hair. My natural color is black. How to I get the ends of my hair to my normal color?

I went to dye my hair from dirty blonde back to my natural hair color, light brown. As it was drying I noticed patches of grayish/blue.

I'm so confused. What can I put on my hair to cover the gray and make it brown?

Here is a simple fix for your blue gray hair color:

  1. Mix 3 parts lemon juice with one part conditioner.
  2. Apply this mixture to your hair and leave it on the hair for 1 hour.
  3. After 1 hour towel dry your hair.
  4. Now blow dry your hair.
  5. After this take a shower and shampoo and condition your hair.
  6. This will remove the blue-gray color in your hair and return your hair back to the normal color again.

So my natural hair is honey blonde, but I dyed it a dark brown. I don't want to keep dyeing it, but want to turn it back to blonde.

The salon said I'd have to bleach it! Is there a better more natural way to fix it?

You have three options here. The safest is to just let it grow out, trimming the colored portion out as it grows. Next option would be getting plenty of highlights to lighten the overall color & blend the roots, with less damage. This option helps make the growing out process less of a contrast between the color and the new roots, without damaging all of your hair. The final option is what the stylist has already recommended, involving color remover or bleach to remove the brown, and a toner to help those ends match the rest of your hair. This of course would be the most harsh solution, although also the most effective.

Unfortunately unless the color you have in is only semi-permanent, there is no truly gentle way to remove it, because when you use permanent color, the color molecules migrate into the spaces in your hair's cuticle, which have been opened by the peroxide in the permanent color mixture. When the color is rinsed out the cuticle closes over the new color molecules. This is why it requires bleaching/color remover to remove it- these processes open the cuticle very wide so the color molecules can come out, while not adding any more color. Do not attempt to dye the brown part blonde, because all that will do is add more color molecules to the ones already in there. Good luck!

I have a short bob, I want to go back to my own colour. How long will it take to grow out?

Hair normally grows about an inch a month. Luckily yours is short already and color usually fades out so I don't think it will look bad at all. Just continue to get it trimmed with a shaggier end rather than blunt to soften your look and reduce the color difference. Good luck!

Unless the dye was a non-permanent type, your hair is permanently changed by the dye chemicals used. You can try a color similar to your natural hair color and then let your hair color grow in.

I would have a salon put my original color highlights in the hair and then get a cut into a cute short style that is most becoming to start working back to it's natural color. That way you get rid of damaged hair and it will get back to it's original color quicker shorter... Good Luck!

Curiosity kills me as always. I'm curious about my hair. When I dyed it at first, it had a bleach. So, it was more of a light-brown color. Then the second time I dyed my hair, my hair color was like gold, brown, yellowish. Just like that. Our school doesn't allow my hair color, so I turned it into light-brown.

Now, I want to return back to my original hair color which was dark brown. So, please, answer me. Just give me advice or home remedies. So, I can return it back.

When you dye the hairs that came out of your brush, compare them to your natural hair color. If one comes exact or close enough do your hair with that color. If not, keep trying.

Go to beauty supply store like Sally's and get a Demi permanent deposit only color. It will cover it with no damage . Also get some Argan oil and do some treatments with it to get it back healthy.

My hair was black brown and then one summer I asked my mom to give me highlights. They didn't turn out how I wanted them to so I dyed it black. It left some brown (from the highlights) so I just recently, yesterday, dyed it again. I asked my mom for black, but she got dark brown.

So I dyed it once again and now the roots and a bit lower are brown (super noticeable) and the rest of the hair is dark brown. I hate it, I just want my original hair color back! What do I do?

About 3-4 weeks ago, I dyed my hair brown with Casting Creme Gloss (semi-permanent). I've already grown tired of my brown hair and I've been trying to strip out the color the past week by doing multiple vitamin c treatments, washing my hair with dish soap, and today I tried dandruff shampoo. The color has faded, but there's a lot left.

Before I dyed my hair brown, I had faded green dip dye and half my hair was bleached. I want to go back to my natural blonde and use Schwarzkopf balayage kit, but is it safe to use it now? The second picture shows my hair just before dying it brown.


The other two are my hair now, cut and faded.

I think I would try Color Oops Extra Strength Hair Color Remover to remove the rest of the dye in your hair.

Afterwards, condition your hair with a deep conditioner and then dye your hair again.

I am naturally brown. I recently got blonde highlights in my hair. I got sick of the highlights in my hair and went dark brown. I used a semi-permanent hair dye. A year and 6 months have passed and I don't know if my hair has returned back to natural. In certain lighting it's looking as though I have caramel highlights in my hair! Is that my natural hair coming through or is it my blonde highlights? Help!

Those are your highlights showing through. Although the darker brown dye is permanent, it will slowly wear away, and those bright places that were your highlights will appear as caramel places. This happens to me also. Your natural color will only appear at the roots as your hair grows.

I dyed my hair blonde yesterday night and it went ginger so I went and got some black/brown hair dye and put it on. It's black/brown now, but I want my natural colour back. I'm afraid if I keep washing the blonde will return. I had natural brown hair by the way. So what should I do?

Using your regular shampoo, do daily washings. Do not use anything harsh. Most self given hair dyes have a short life span. I am a swimmer and 3 weeks is all I get from my OTC less than $8 boxes. I have found a few about $10-15 that will give me 60 days....
Do not keep mixing more hair dye until the problem resolves itself....the hair is going to rebel from the chemicals and you would hate to deal with a permanent serious issue.
If you can afford a short hair cut, that is one way to really change the color faster. I always do my hair color before getting a hair cut.
