You should go to a hair salon and have them fix it before you ruin your hair.

If you want your hair to be a specific color all around you need to actually bleach your entire hair and than dye it. I would get it done professionally or risked damaging your hair.

I am assuming that you have coloured your hair before:

The home packet dyes will NOT colour over previously coloured hair, at least not to the extent that they will colour your natural hair. That is why the roots are picking up the colour beautifully and the ends are only picking up a small amount of red. 

To get your hair all to the one colour you will need to strip the old colour from your hair, or in other words bleach it. GO TO A HAIR SALON TO DO THIS. It is very bad for your hair and they SHOULD do it slowly over a few weeks and not all at once.

Never try to correct hair color mistakes yourself. You will just end up with an even bigger mistake.

See a professional colorist.

I understand that it is always better to go to a professional, but I completely get not wanting to spend the money on it. Go out and buy a bleaching kit I reccomend this one


It might leave your hair with a slightly orange tint, but that won’t be bad since you’re going red over top. Once you use the bleach you can buy a dye kit to get the colour you want. Then I suggest not doing anything colouring for a while lol.

Also you might want to look into a good deep conditioning treatment, Aussie three minute miracle is amazing and affordable, but hard to find. Treseme also makes a good one 🙂

I’ve had this same problem when I bleached my hair in HS and only the top half took the dye. I went to a salon and they had to dye my hair black before lightening it with a brown dye just to even out the dye job (mind you, this was in Southeast Asia so other than the communication barrier, I wasn’t exactly dealing with professional stylists, so I have no idea if they did this right). I spent 4 years trying to even out my color until I finally cut it short last January and waited for it all to grow back…only to find that my hair just lightens naturally so it’s always half lighter. The bottom line is, you should go to a salon and work with someone who knows what he’s doing before you damage your hair with bleach or dye. And since you’re going red, henna might be a good alternative as it’s a much stronger but natural dye with nutrients and conditioning . The only downside of henna is that chemical dyes will no longer work until your natural hair grows back.
