Do you have a picture of your current colour? I’m not a hair professional but I’ve learned alot from being in the beauty industry, and admittedly my own mistakes LOL I may have a suggestion 🙂

Edit: She was right about using a lighter dye over a darker colour, it wouldn’t really do anything. The rinse she did was a good idea, it should have faded the colour, along with a few more washes.  The only thing I could say she should have done instead was to do the cap highlites (rather than foil) because this way you can have a TON of really tiny highlites.  Foils tend to come out more noticable, but the cap gives smaller and more subtle. So if she did a full head of those it would have lightened the entire hair but in a more subtle way.

Hope you can get it fixed. Keep me posted!

@Bazinga:  Hopefully the shampoo will keep helping. I hope she can fix it! I have had something very similar happen in the past, it wasn’t fun.

Alright, please trust me when I say this but I have been in your shoes last week.

1.) Buy a box of color oops. It’s found at the drug store or kmart/walmart. I got it in the extra strength.
2.) Buy a box of natural light brown. I bought the garnier frutise in light brown. (foam kind) You don’t want nothing darker cause the hair from the color oops will grab color way faster and darker.

Apply Color Oops. and Do what it instructs. Shampoo and condition and rinse the hell outta your hair for the best results.

When you dry your hair 110% its going to be YELLOW/ORANGE.

 Put it on the light brown, and dont leave it on for the whole time. The garnier one I bought said 25 mins, but I only left it on for 20.

Rinse that out and I was back to having a natural shade of light/medium brown hair. It was a life saver.

It is not great for your hair, but my hair’s condition didn’t change when I was done. I’m not a professional but I’ve been through this numerous times, and so far it works for me when I make a stupid mistake.

 

Good Luck!

Dear lord, if you already turned your hair black with box dye once, don’t try it again at home! Get it done at the salon or you’ll just spend more to fix it. If your stylist doesn;t know what to do, try someone else. Perhaps a colorist who ONLY does color.

That Color Oops product is bleach. It will trash your hair.

The color oops never trashed my hair. I have naturally straight hair thats soft feeling. I’ve only used the product twice, once in my early teens, and last week.

Never had a problem with it making my hair feel dry and ‘hay-like’ or had any noticable damage.  I just did my normal routine, shampooed, rinsed like crazy, put my conditioner in for a couple miniutes and then rinsed like crazy.

So who knows, maybe I was one of the lucky ones. Always worked for me, and got me the results I needed.

I know how much it sucks having a dye screw up. I hope you find a solution that works for you!

Colour Oops is a variable thing. I’ve heard of it working for some people but I’ve also heard of it doing nothing and drying the hair out.

Ok what you need is a color stripper. Rusk has one that works every time. It has 3 steps. You can repeat step 1 which is what takes the color out. It’s not harsh , it will be a strange color until youapply step 3. Once that happens your stylist should be able to tell what level color you can apply. I would recommended a semi permanent only. Box and permanent will be to harsh and you will need to not color after this process for at least 4-6 weeks after the color  stripper and semi permanent. You will need to let the natural oils in your hair progress. Box color is sp tricky because when they are making the colors and formulas they are never consistent. So you never know from that point what your hair will turn out and  as a professional stylist what it will take to fix it and what color  it will turn out to be. That’s why I believe a color stripper is the only way. Highlights only mask the actually problem. I would also recommend a sulfate free shampoo and hydrating mask after you strip the hair. I hope this helps:)

The rusk stuff is called Eliminate. I would call around and ask if they carry a color stripper similar or that one, let the person know you don’t want highlights .  A seasoned stylist will know exactly what to do and shouldn’t be a problem. I hope you all the best in your search!
