I had blonde hair and yesterday I decided to go dark. Like a light brown. Well my hair is like copper brown. I don't want to dye again and fry my hair. How can I in the meantime get this to tone down or go away.. HELP!! TIA.

Don't mess w/ it. Go to a salon and have them correct it! No offense But you don't know what you're doing and could make it worse! As a blonde, you probably have a lot of red/gold in your hair and whatever colour you chose picked up on that! Don't mess your hair up even more by trying to fix it yourself! Good Luck!

I had my hair colored at a salon. But I really don't want them trying to fix it. I have come to realize that some hairstylists, don't know how to fix anything.

The bronze color is usual after you color your hair. However, he should have used a toners afterwards to remove that color level. Next time you should ask then about it. Don't let silence destroy you. =)

You can get a special purple shampoo which removes slight brassiness. Definitely go to the hairdressers if it's an intense orange for color correction or get them to tone it as starsabove mentioned. Just go back and tell them you're unhappy, I'm sure they will correct @ nc, my hairdresser has done it for me before when I was super blonde. Good luck.

I was using a golden blonde color support shampoo, and it was really giving me brassiness. When I went back they gave me a glaze for a more ash blonde. Then I started using the cool blond color support shampoo & conditioner. Haven't had the issue since. But the cool blonde S & C I use is purple.

Her fixing it shouldn't be a huge issue.

Thanks everyone. I am going to call her Tues and see if she can tone it down. She didn't use a toner btw. I s/h said something while I was still in the chair. But I noticed how really copper it was when I went in the sunlight.

I tone down my own hair if my color gets brassy/copperish. I use a 20 volume mixed with a permanent hair color (almost always light ash brown/blonde) and put it on dry hair for about 10-12 minutes. Ash counteracts the red. Used on blondes and sometimes it turns out grey in color. Dark hair is so hard to pull to that level. Here is a pic of my new hair color.


But I love my hairdresser and she knows how to pull through that brassy/red/coppery level. Good Luck. But you probably should contact her and ask her for your help. I have done this enough on my own hair that I feel comfortable enough/

I actually went to another hairdresser and shee managed to get it to a deeper red. She told me to use the purple shampoo, which I have already.

purple will tone out yellow

ash tones will tone out orange

pearl tones will tone out gold

i'd have her put a semi-permanent color on as a toner.. depends on your hair color though. that purple shampoo won't really do alot .... usually it will help upkeep toned hair but won't tone it for you.

you can use perm. haircolor is a toner for stronger results but ... it's alot more damaging that using a semi-permanent and imo the results of semi are better because it's not as damaging to your hair

It's literally a purple colored shampoo. I use one from Paul Mitchell.

IMHO the true test of a color safe shampoo is on red hair dye. I have had years of experience trying to keep auburn on my naturally white hair (yeah, I know it's a losing battle) and Shielo's Color Protect Shampoo / Conditioner is the best. Shielo is better than what my salon uses and better than Matrix.

You know, everyone on all of these sites always says to go to a salon and have it done by a professional, however, every time I have gone to a hairdresser. they always manage to make it worse. When I do it myself at home, it always comes out a lot better. This is why I stopped going to salons to get my hair dyed. I don't know why they always mess up, maybe it's just because they don't know my hair like I do and it's tendencies. 

 

Anyways, I had the same exact problem as you and the only thing that helped me was to use color oops to get all the hair dye out and reapply an ash brown on top of my orange blonde hair. It got rid of all the warm tones I had issues with before and evened out my hairs tone to a nicer, more natural looking color. I also made my own toning shampoo using blue/green food color in shampoo to counteract any orange and red warm tones that began reappearing. You can't really find blue/green toning shampoo in many stores at all, which is why I made it myself and it worked wonders.

 

Good luck!
