Dyed Hair Too Bright? Tone It Down Easy at Home

How do I tone down red hair dye? I have gone for a different dye, as my usual one wasn't stocked. Now it is too bright and looks gingery.

I always used a medium to dark Auburn, but accidentally purchased light auburn which came out bright Red (At least to me it was too bright). I called Clairol, explained exactly what I used and she suggested a fix for me. Call them or the number on the box of the hair dye you used. They were really helpful.

That happened to me once and I found that washing the hair with baking soda toned it down quite nicely! Good luck!

You need to get a color that is 2 shades LIGHTER. Thats your only way to fade out the dark a bit. But...every color i have used my roots always cime out to my natural hair color unlike you. Just take my adcice im a professional cosmetologist i know color if you don't use 2 shades lighter then uts your damb problem
