I’m a hairstylist. Color cannot lighten already colored hair. That’s why your roots lightened more. I would go see a hairstylist to fix it. Whatever you do do not dye the whole head again. You are just putting more color onto your hair, which will make it harder to fix

the hair at your roots was “virgin” hair, and had not yet been touched by color. That is why it turned out a different color. The developer you used was probably way too strong for your virigin hair, but worked OK on the hair that had already been dyed. there is nothing you can do at home to fix this, as far as i know. lightening hair at home is very hard.

I agree with the other bee’s ( i too am a hairstylist) they will be able to match the browns up for your roots and cover the orange!

NEVER EVER BLEACH YOUR HAIR YOURSELF AT HOME!

Yes sallys sells professional products but if you dont know how to mix and what reaction will happen with certain chemicals you will ALWAYS end up with bad results!

I know how it is to wanna save money….for years I used box dye and then used sallys products but I never new the damage I was causeing my hair until I learned actually how it all worked!

Please please go to a salon to have it fixed! Doing what you suggested earlier of re-dying it and highlighting it later by yourself may make your hair fall out and DAMAGE IT REALLY BAD!

Good luck dear…let us know what you decide!

Depending on how dark the ends are now and how light you want to be, they may just be able to do a soap cap(bleach mixed with shampoo). It’s not as damaging as putting straight bleach on your head.  Then they can use a semi permanent dye on your ends and roots to match the color u want. All this depends on how dark your hair is and the condition of your hair is. I have to do this all the time to people who try to save a few bucks by coloring at home…they always end up spending a whole lot more to fix it 🙂
