You’re going to need a hairdresser to remove the dye in order to go from black back to strawberry blonde.  Black is a bitch to remove.  I would ask your friend to pay for at least part of it, since they didn’t listen and used permanent dye on you.  You’re looking at hours in the chair and probably close to $100 to get your hair straightened out.  That’s what it took when a friend of mine accidentally dyed my auburn hair black.  You can’t strip it at home without bleaching it all out and redying your hair, and that’s a risky proposition.  Go get it done by a professional.

@hisluckygirl22:  I would be very very careful trying anything yourself. I bleached my hair myself a few years back (cuz it was dyed too dark) and it turned orange and was so damaged I had to cut it all off.

I would see a pro about this.

What a cow though… totally misleading you.

Do NOT try and take it out at home! It can permanently damage your hair if you do anything to mess it up, and that’s very easy to do with bleach. Go to a professional. It will obviously be more expensive than DIY, but you’ll get to keep your hair rather than frying it on your own.

Word of advice- if your hairdresser’s first plan is to bleach, lighten, lift, etc-walk out. You can get color lifting kits at sally’s for less than 10 bucks. I’d try that first. You will probably have to re-dye your hair to your natural color to get the color back exactly right after lifting the other dye out, but you can get a demi permanent color that will work just fine for that.

Pert shampoo!!  Scrub it like 3-4 times a day to get most of it out:) My hair girl told me that to help lighten mine or Dawn dish soap.
