Hair coloring nightmare!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, has anyone had a bad hair coloring experience? I am now a very dark reddish brown, I used to have light brown with golend blond highlights. Is there any way to lighten this? I had it professionally done, twice, first red, then dark brown to cover the red, plus it was highlighted underneath. Any help or compassion is greatly appreciated!

you can color remove ... i would reccomend that

goldwell makes an excellent color remover (however it is a professional product)


otherwise shampoo a couple times vigourusly .. that should wash some color out



i've had a million bad hair color experiences .. from blue hair ... to burns and boils oh yea!!

Thanks,
do you need to recolor after the color remover? Is the color remover like a bleach that strips your hair?
Is there any way I can get the color I used to have?

Thanks again, boy I'm obsessed over this!

umm it's hard to know if you can get what you had back without a picture of what you have and what you have now


i would say yes you have to recolor after a color remover

it's NOT A bleach and DOES NOT strip your hair ... it removes the pigments from permanent hair color ... kind of "undoing" what you did

i used it on mine once when it accidentally turned blue (random) and it color removed all the blue ... i just needed to tone it after (since i'm a platinum blonde at the moment)

i would try to color remover thing about 2 times in a row (just to make sure it's all out but you'll proabably have to go to a salon or find someone who will get it for you from a beauty supply store) and then color over the top of it to get your original color back

good luck!
