i put a light brown on my hair and it is jet black ive washed it now 4 times and all though its toned down ever soo slightly its still really black im far too pale for dark hair r their any quick fixes i have college in the morn so have no time to go buy anything
Lilly I used the Colour B4 a couple of days ago, it worked a treat. If you really need to do something before tomorrow then you need to try something like a strong shampoo, I've heard that Head and Shoulders Original is really good for fading colour or you can try washing up liquid (put straight on to dry hair, lather then rinse) but you really need to condition well after. If you can get through tomorrow (try tying/pinning hair so less visible) then use the colour B4, there are two strengths and again really condition well after. Good luck
Fairy Liquid - seriously. It does a better job than head and shoulders, strips some of the colour out.
Wash your hair in that a few times - you will need to condition well after it though. ime it has to be real fairy liquid, the others don't quite have the same ferocious stripping effect. Good luck - I have been there too!
im not sure if its permanent i would imagein so it was a mobile hairdresser that done it i didnt even let her blow dry my hair im so gutted ive tried every shampoo washed my hair 9 times between last night and today my hair is like straw what is this B4 thing yous are talking bout if i go into boots will it just be next to the hair dies? and is it called B4 ive never heard of it before and fairy liquid not tried that yet will try that in the morning before i head out n see if that works as well thanks alot for the help
i did use fairy liquid first before i read ur message curiousmama but it just left my hair all streaky and still black ended up using the b4 stuff wich left me with my natural hair colour but with some orange strips i then just put my normal brown colour through it and im very please to say my hair is back to normal thanks for all the tips and info
I've used colour b4 extra as I dyed my hair near to jet black. Although the top became lighter (a tad ginger unfortunately) the bottoms of my hair were still dark brown. The next day I used the same stripper, but brushed it through into the ends to try and remove the dark brown again, but it didn't work so I have seriously ginger roots, I also tried lemon juice, baking soda and head and shoulders shampoo of which none helped, I'm currently attempting fairy liquid which is slightly lightening by every wash. I would certainly not recommend colour b4
