I had a salon dye my hair bright red too.  I went back and they re-dyed it using a blue or green hint to the colour I think it was (DON’T QUOTE ME ON THAT!)…and my hair is brown now.  Darker than I wanted, but definitely not red.  Maybe give that a shot?

Or, let the red fade, and redye it in a couple weeks.

Red is the hardest colour to get rid of, even if they dye a brown over it (it will be almost a black brown depending how bright your hair is) there will still be a red tint. So if you want the red completely gone yes, they will have to strip it. Or, get them to dye a brown over it and take it from there…  5 months is plenty of time to sort your hair out!

@elenam: I am gathering the red was not the intended color right?  It was a result of the dying to whatever color you were originally going for?  This actually happens, however an experienced colorist is able to trouble shoot this. The fact that you have been there 3 times to deal with this, seems like part of the problem.  Its totally fixable, so dont freak.  Its my suggestion that you find a new colorist, preferably one that is rec’d to you, and work through it.  Some hair just has a natural red tint to it, that comes out when fussing with the color.  Mine does and easily goes coppery when I try to get closer to blonde.

@elenam: Wait she tried to blame you? ha if you went cosmetology school you wouldn’t of come to her.

I think 5 months is plenty of time to get it to how you want it. Sounds like you’ll have to get it stripped so you start off with a fresh hair color with no red tint coming through. I would recommend getting a more experience colorist because with 3 visits and still not much progress, it seems like she may not know what she’s doing.

Good Luck!
