I dyed my hair a couple of weeks ago-very light golden blonde by garnier. I thought it looked a bit too orange so decided to put an ash shade over it-another garnier one-to try and tone down the orange.
It is a blood mess! The roots and about 2 inches below that are very ash blonde and then the rest is still a golden blonde. I was thinking of putting a darker blonde over it-do you think that would work? Please don't advise me to go to hairdresser as I really cant afford it!
Tomorrow morning, early, don a hat and get to Boots for colour stripper and a bottle of an acceptable replacement colour. I haven't done this but my mother did. She was grey/white/blond and thought she'd try being a redhead. Came out pink. It was sorted quite privately within a couple of hours. Good luck OP.
I posted here last night as I had put a light brown colour on my medium brown hair knowing is often goes too dark. I had just grown all my hair dye out to start from scratch, amd am well used to home dye!
Yet I came out of the shower with coppery glam rock hair.
I am literally sat typing with a medium ash brown on my hair with 10 more mins before it needs washing off. I shall let you know my results.
My advice is stick more dye on! (prob not best advice as I'm mpre brunette than blond!)
i have naturally red hair and dye it blonde, so the initial lightening is always too brassy. this is a lovely light golden blonde but takes away the orangey-ness as it has cool notes in it too. semi permanent so not too damaging. good luck!
So do you think if I put a darker blonde over the top it will work? the roots are very blonde and don't want it going even lighter. I can live with it for a week or so-if I tie the front back it not as shit looking!
