    Help Help-hair dye disaster- UPDATE on page 3

    Advertisements
    I dyed my hair too dark and need some ideas on how to lighten it.

    My hair is naturally dark brown but gets weird reddish highlights from the sun so I wanted to dye it dark brown to even it out. Well the color looks BLACK and is way too dark for my skin tone.

    My DH is coming home from deployment soon and I don't want my hair to look like this.

    I've been researching on the internet and people say to use Prell shampoo (never even heard of this) or hot oil to fade the color faster.

    Do any of you have any ideas or recommendations? Has this happened to any of you? HELP!!!

    Call a good salon (not one of those quick cut shops) and ask without having to come in and get the color stripped is there any ideas on what you can do in order to lighten the color.

    tick tock, i think she has a customer, she didn't answer my call, i txt her... lol

    I know that with black the only way to do it is stripping, which can be done at home, or a salon, but its really hard on your hair... if its super dark brown, there may be something you can do... would you maybe want some hi lights to just make it look not so dark?

    If you just dyed it, wash it right away, twice. This should help some. Then call a good salon in the am, I would reccommend an AVEDA salon: http://www.aveda.com/templates/door/locator.tmpl then have them fix it.

    I would not put a perm solution on your hair. A professional stylist will know how to fix it with the least amount of damage. If you use multiple chemical processes/dyes on your hair the reacation can be unpredictable. That isn't what you want right before homecoming.

    Good Luck.

    Be careful fixing it yourself. I did the exact same thing. Then I kept trying different things to correct it myself. I ended up with a huge disaster that i have to let grow out. By the time i finally went to the stylist there wasn't much they could do.

    If you go now, they can probably strip out a lot of that color for you and it will lighten right up. It is a little harsh on your hair, but so is using a million products trying to do it yourself.
