I feel your pain. Everytime I dye my light brown hair a chocolate brown it turns red. Thank goodness it isn’t hard to change it!

Good luck! I hope it turns out okay.

I naturally have dark blonde hair that I lighten. My brother, however, has more of a light/medium brown color to his hair. He wanted my lightened color for shits and giggles and asked our (yes, we go to the same person) stylist if she could do it. She told him that it wouldn’t be exactly the same just because his hair isn’t the same base color as mine but that she’d try her best to get it to be as close as possible. Of course, it didn’t turn out the same. But at least she was HONEST with him! One of the many reasons I love her. She will not try and fudge her way through something.

I would not touch it again yourself. I am a blonde who went red for a couple years. It is a really hard color to master and I would definitely leave it to the expert even though you can’t see her until next week. Or call her and beg her to squeeze you in after hours!!! It never hurts to ask.

I wish I can dye my hair from the inside… I hate my white/grey roots! And no matter which color I choose the roots are always lighter and still looks like roots but a different color! ARGH!

You can dye your hair lighter, if the original colour ended up being more brown-red over copper then all you can do is strip the colour and try again.

@pharmy:  Red fades so quickly so that should help. Wash it in really hot water because cold water preserves color. You might try washing it with a blonde shampoo. John Frieda and Redken both make blonde shampoos and I accidentally used it once when I had red hair and it definitely changed the color of my red to something lighter. I think one of those would be safer than trying to mess with dye yourself.
