I have a red permanent dye and I want to go mid brown. How safe is it to do it at home? I've seen in boots and Superdrug semi-permanent decolourisers (is that what they're called?) but what does it mean?
I've used this before and it has worked quite well. It does turn your hair a bit of an odd colour so it's best to have a light dye to stick on the next day (and no reason to leave the house that day). Deep condition your hair to within an inch of it's life and open all the windows as you're doing it because it stinks of rotten egg
I have dark brown and have been haphazardly colouring my grey bits for years at home. Started to notice after my last application of a root touch-up that I have some alarming black patches of colour build-up at the front and ends. So have this evening tried to remove build-up with this: www.dgjorganics.com/products/hair-colour-remover-for-dark-tones-colour-build-up with the aim of then re-dyeing.
It's OK to use, has left my hair in pretty good condition (so far) and has certainly worked. It's just about dry now and the grey bits are now a cool pale caramel (not at all orangey in this light). Need a second opinion in the morning from someone who can see the back, but so far am tempted to leave it like this. Looks like I've had highlights/low lights! Or perhaps blend in with something gentle like Danield Field? Wasn't as cheap as the Boots one but am quite impressed.
