It's my birthday on Saturday (30th) and I can't afford to go to a salon so I thought I'd treat myself to a home dye.
My hair is quite dark naturally, so bought a Schwarzkopf HD purple dye. It claimed to be specifically for dark hair. I followed the instructions exactly but it's just turned my hair very, very dark (almost black) on the length and ends and the top is a sort of dark red although it does look a bit purple but only under very bright light.
I hate it so much, I know it's only hair but it's really upsetting me . I've tried washing it a few times since to see if it would lighten but it still looks the same.
Is there anything I can do to help lighten it? I don't really want to put another colour on top as I think it would irritate my scalp so soon.
