@icanhearyousmile:  yes! Just cover that spot with dye to redo and you’ll be good to go

I miss spots all the time because I have a ton of long hair. I usually miss spots in the back by my neck. You can use your extra bottle any time, there is no waiting period needed.

@tksjewelry:  Ditto, ditto, ditto!!! Except I’m usually too lazy to care. I’ve been having issues covering salon blonde highlights recently, and I’ve already dyed TWICE over it and still can’t get it out. (Who knew blonde would be so hard to cover?!) I’m kind of rocking an ombre thing on the underneath portions of my hair haha.  🙂

I did. Actually I missed a bunch of spots, I ended up looking like a cheatah! I just dyed it a chocolate brown though I waited a couple weeks beforehand.

What kind of peroxide are you using in your color?

I’m sitting here with my mother who is a hairstylist. Her advice is to use 10 volume peroxide (peroxide comes in different volumes, 10, 20, 30 etc. You can get it at Sally Beauty Supply) mixed with the hair color that you’re using (equal parts of each) and just put it on the spot.

If your hair color came with 20 volume peroxide and  you can’t go get any 10 volume then cut the amount of the 20 in half when you mix up a new batch of the color. This is going to remedy the issue with the highlighted patch. 

Kind of confusing… :-/

@icanhearyousmile:  Hmm. Well my mom’s response confused me when I was typing it so I’m sure it wasn’t much help to you at all lol. I hope you got it figured out!

I dye my own hair all the time, and I’ve only ever NOT missed a spot once. Just use the dye when you have spare time. Should be fine.
