I have always coloured my hair myself ranging from bright cherry red to a dark brown.I wanted to give my hair a rest from colouring so asked my hairdresser colour it as close to my natural colour and put a couple of slices of blonde in (so I dont get bored). The base colour has come ou so dark I really want to colour stip it out and just go a mid brown. I feel the current dark colout is swamping me even though I have changed my makeup to suit. I have heard that head and shoulders/Tomotei will fade the colour a bit...is this true or should I just go down the Colour B4 route?ANy advice?
Gimblinginthewabe - thanks for the reply . I have coloured stripped my hair before and just bunged a level one mid brown over it for a couple of weeks till I could use a perm colour. May give it a week to change a bit...
TBH, if it isn't the colour you wanted or asked for then go back to the salon and ask them to correct it. Better to get it sorted professionally than faff at home and still not have it the way you want it.
I had a similar issue a couple of years of ago and didn't go back to resolve......whenever I look at photos from that time I wonder what the hell I was thinking - I look like Morticia Adams....and not in a sexy vamp kinda way!
i always find i like my hair when its been coloured about 2 weeks after daily washing, i find what ever shade/brand i use it comes out way too dark, almost black, i even used light brown last time and theres no difference to the medium brown and dark brown. A couple of weeks ago i had my hair coloured at the salon they were doing half price colour and the owner did it, usually do it at home but as we have just moved i didn't want to ruin the bathroom, i said i wanted brown and that usually they always come out to dark and guess what the colour came out too dark but after 2 weeks its faded and i likey.
Head and shoulders strip the colour and swimming would too, don't use the colour removers you have to spend ages in the shower and you will be left ginger, also dried my hair out.
If I was you, I would go back to the salon & ask for advice at least. I would explain to them that you feel the colour is too dark. In all likeliness the colour will fade over a couple of weeks by washing your hair everyday, without you having to go down the colour B4 route.
