I want to dye my blonde highlights back to a goldenish brown. They're so expensive to keep up, it's getting ridiculous. Can I just do it myself with a box dye? I'm scared it'll go green! But I also don't want to go to the hairdresser either (why do they all close so early?! I'm never home before 7 and can never get anything late enough)
I would imagine - having done this myself and gone green - you would be best off with a temporary wash in a light golden brown _ I use one at the moment from Nice and Easy - it has no peroxide or ammonia in it. It coloured my bleached bits nicely. I'm growing out my ombre though. I did actually ask in another post if temporary colours are okay to use on a long-term basis. I think they are.
I've got about an inch of roots showing just now, should I start with the dye there for an extra few minutes? God I'm so nervous about this, I've been highlighted blonde for 4 years now so it's a big change
