I am a bridesmaid in a wedding in 2 weeks and dyed my hair reddish with demi permanent color almost 2 months ago. I would like to speed up the fading process, as I am starting to see roots. Anybody else have this issue? Any tips on how to strip the old color at home?

Any kind of clarifying shampoo will help pull out the color. Red is tricky, becasue it fades fast, but then the last bit holds on forever.
Here is a good tutorial:

nothing fades my demi permanent color faster than sun exposure and swimming (salt or chlorine).
however red IS hard to get out, you might have to do something to balance out the roots or tone the color, even if it’s just a temporary dye for the wedding day. if you are tyring to look your best for your friend’s wedding, don’t try to DIY it anymore — you don’t have much time to mess around with it. go to a salon and ask them what your options are.
